Make no mistake about it - this is one of the greatest comebacks in Green Bay Packers history.
I will fully admit that I wanted Scott T0lzien to take over at quarterback in the second half. That first half was a stunningly bad display.
Yes, the Cowboys handed the game to the Packers with some atrocious playcalling down the stretch. The thing is, at least for me...the Packers took it. I'm not sure that would have happened a few weeks ago.
Andrew Quarless is making himself some money.
Brad Jones and Morgan Burnett are lighting Ted Thompson's money on fire every Sunday.
Eddie Lacy "gets skinny" better than any big back I've ever seen.
The offense could not have been more putrid in the first half if it had tried to be.
Clay Matthews can't win a one on one to save his life - but his shared sack with Datone Jones and quick pressure of Romo on Sam Shields' INT (even though he missed the sack) were huge plays in this game. Still, pretty damn disappointing performance from a guy who was paid a boatload of money this past offseason.
Josh Boyd is really undisciplined, but he's active and shows tons of hustle on nearly every play. And he's going to get better.
Mike Daniels was held a bunch, and none of it got called. Good for him for not getting frustrated. Guy kept bringing it and came up big.
Sam Shields is making himself so much money.
Just a reminder that Ed Werder reported this morning that the Packers expect Rodgers to play next week.
Jarrett Boykin played another quietly excellent game.
It drove me mad to see the offense, with the quarterback who supposedly excels at running the no huddle, taking forever between plays while down in the 4th quarter.
Tramon Williams should have had TWO interceptions. But what a day for Tramon.
Mike Neal was not offsides. Doug Free totally rocked back.
Let this be a lesson - no matter how bad the refs get (and they were bad) good teams fight through it and find a way. This team could have quit several times in the second half. And they never did.
