(Recap of Packers vs. Panthers)
X’s & O’s
There seemed to be an air of confidence about the team to start the game, even though Rodgers couldn't get a first down.
Rodger’s arm looked pretty good to start the game - seemed to have some zip on it, but his timing was off just a bit as he threw behind both Jordy and Cobb on what would normally be easy throws for him
It was an absolute crime that Aaron Jones only carried the ball 3 times the entire game - McCarthy and Rodgers will never commit to run the ball even when it’s staring them both right in the face.
All 3 interceptions were poor throws from Rodgers - all 3 were underthrown (something he never does). The pick that was meant for Cobb should have been a TD if he threw it high enough over the LB.
Davante Adams suffered his 3rd concussion in 14 months on that bush league hit by Thomas Davis. 2 concussions on illegal hits for Adams sucks, but it might affect his contract as he is proving to be concussion prone(!)
This was the 1st 3 INT game in 8 years for Rodgers - that is an incredible stat and a testament to his greatness. In fairness the Panthers have a good defense - top 5 in the league I believe.
This might have been the poorest collective defensive effort of the year - a no name WR caught 2 TDs and old man Greg Olson caught a WIDE OPEN TD on a blown coverage by Josh Jones
Dom Capers is a dead man walking...he might get fired the day after the last regular season game.
This team also lacks talent everywhere - it’s pretty depressing actually and that’s on Ted.
Outside of Football stuff:
“Our highest paid, best player on the team sits just because the team isn't doing well? Is this the new precedent?”
“Why is this superstar wasting his career in Green Bay ? Amazing ignorance on his part.”
“This idea of a ‘ community owned team’ isn’t such a good thing after all. Sell the Team. Buyer’s would be lining up”
