"Chips Report" From Packers 2010 Victory At Eagles

Our weekly designations for the Green Bay Packers 27-20 season opening victory over the Philadelphia Eagles...

Blue Chips

  • Clay Matthews–He probably deserves a blue chip for his 4th-and-1 stop of Michael Vick with the Packers clinging to a 7-point lead two minutes left in the game, but that's far from all he did. Matthews also had two sacks, two tackles for a loss, two quarterback hits (including one that laid out Michael Vick), a pass defensed and a forced fumble. For a guy that didn't play a single game in the preseason, it was a dominating performance. And that's not hyperbole.
  • Mason Crosby–Crosby had a kickoff that landed out of bounds, but his franchise record 56-yard field goal trumps that. He went 2-2 on field goals on the day including another long one that measured 49 yards. He added three extra points and turned in a performance that is helping observers forget about last season's subpar performance.

Red Chips

  • Tramon Williams–Williams was tested in the first half of Sunday's game, and he passed the test. He broke up three passes, two of which were nearly intercepted and helped the secondary turn in a surprisingly solid day. And even though he had Packers fans nervous by diving after one punt, he turned nothing into something for a 10-yard gain on another.
  • Greg Jennings–Jennings' 32-yard touchdown reception from Aaron Rodgers in the third quarter was impressive, but even moreso was his leaping one-handed to grab to convert a third down earlier in the game. In all, he led the team with 5 catches for 82 yards.

Cow Chips

  • Chad Clifton & Mark Tauscher: The veteran bookend offensive tackles looked like they lost a step, each guilty for giving up a sack in a poor first half performance from a pass protection standpoint. They flat out lost one-on-one battles and had fans wondering if the Bryan Bulaga era might not be too far away on the horizon.
  • Injuries: According to reports, defensive lineman Justin Harrell may have a torn ACL that would likely end his season. Running back Ryan Grant had his foot in a boot after getting his ankle rolled on in the first half. And Cullen Jenkins apparently broke his hand in multiple places. Only the Harrell injury appears serious, but Sunday's game served as a reminder how violent this game can be. Consider Eagles fullback Leonard Weaver's torn ACL and the concussions suffered by quarterback Kevin Kolb and Stewart Bradley. Brutal.

I would add Brandon Jackson and Tramon Williams to at least the red chips list.

Don't forget the Eagles also lost their starting center, Jamaal Jackson, for the season due to a torn triceps muscle.

Bradley's concussion was tough to watch, the staggering and falling, gave me chills.

To say nothing of the fact that he came back into the game for a bit before the half (same for Kolb). Just inexcusable.

First I heard of the Jenkins injury. That could be pretty dire even if he can play with a club.

Brian-Love the work you are doing on the site. Keep it up. I think you could add a category for guys that pretty quietly did nice work. I'm thinking Derick Martin did a great job on special teams all night long and needs a callout somewhere. Being from Idaho I'd call it a potato chip.

LOL - potato chip. Love it!

Andy Reid also put his concussed QB back in after Mathews rung his bell. What happened to the NFL protecting players with concussion? Reid should be fined. Of course, MM outcoached fat Andy, something Sherman never accomplished!
