X’s & O’s
Death, taxes & opening touchdowns surrendered by the Packers’ defense: The Cowboys marched down the field to open the game and scored a TD against the Packers defense. Lather, rinse & repeat. ????
HHCD has not had a good start to the season - he was voted to the pro bowl last year but he has been average (at best) this year.
The Packers have real problems at Cornerback - Kevin King, a rookie, is their best cover guy and he got hurt. ALL CBs behind him have huge flaws of some sort.
Aaron Jones looks twice as good as Ty Montgomery right now. He’s faster, quicker and just looks more like a real RB. Ty Montgomery should NOT be the starter anymore after Jone’s performance
The patchwork offensive line played ok, and that’s all they really needed to do
Special Teams was a dumpster fire - Mason Crosby missed TWO EXTRA POINTS(!)
The defense failed AGAIN when the team needed them most - giving up a 9 minute drive, letting Zeke Elliot run all over them late in the 4th quarter to allow the Cowboys to take the lead.
The winning drive + TD pass by Aaron Rodgers is the stuff that makes a HOF career - that was a brilliant drive.
Aaron Rodgers played a superb game - he owns the Cowboys for the most part
Outside of Football stuff:
The Mike Pence walk-out “stunt” at the Indianapolis game
Roger Goodell complaining/pleading with teams and owners now that $ are being impacted.
