It's hard to believe, but the Packers looked to be the same team that played in Arizona last January.
That said, you saw some promise from a few of the young guys later on in the second half.
Don't look now, but Jake Delhomme is one of those "veteran quarterbacks" that gave the Packers such problems last year. Once again we saw defensive backs giving way too much space off the line, though we did see a bit more man coverage.
Brandon Chillar got a whole lot of reps tonight. Will be interested to see how he holds up this week in practice.
Best part about tonight? No injuries other than Grant getting dinged and Crabtree.
Aaron Rodgers is a man possessed.
Mike Neal and Justin Harrell both provided some good moments on the defensive line.
Back in March, Mike McCarthy said "Special teams will be the most improved area on our football team" Can't wait to see it, Mike.
Speaking of special teams, can we PLEASE stop trying to turn Sam Shields into a punt returner?
Or Quinn Porter for that matter?
Loved what I saw from Brandon Underwood tonight.
Bryan Bulaga had an overall impressive night, both at guard and at tackle.
I think it's pretty apparent that Dom Capers will need to manufacture whatever pressure this team is going to get on the quarterback. Without Clay Matthews, they simply don't have a single guy who can beat his man one-on-one.
With that said, Poppinga actually did a good job off the edge on the second Browns touchdown. He was held and would have had the sack.
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
