I am running out of words to express how well Aaron Rodgers is playing. It can not be overstated - he is the best player in the NFL right now.
There was a "palpable malaise" over this game. (Thanks to Jeff Blumb for the perfect description)
Great game from Clay Matthews.
Sam Shields needs to learn to get down in the endzone after interceptions.
The Rams did a good job of moving the football by following the script teams like the Panthers and Falcons have used - keep guys in to protect, send out a minimum number of guys in routes, protect the QB and have him make high percentage throws. Capers is content to let teams do this until the offense builds a lead - then he starts bringing heat. I'd question it - except the Packers are 6-0.
Speaking of covering guys - how much better did Tramon Williams look? And by "better" I mean "healthier"...
Excellent work from the two tackles, Newhouse and Bulaga. Newhouse especially looked stout in both the run and pass game. Should be a great matchup watching him take on Jared Allen next week.
No - I have no idea who A.J. Hawk was flipping off after his sack.
As great as the offense looked in the second quarter, it looked lethargic for much of the game.
I can not stand that 3rd and short call to Kuhn out of the shotgun where they toss it to the fullback wide. I know McCarthy has his reasons for calling it. I still hate it.
Good to see Zombo back out there. Looked good setting the edge in the running game.
Yeoman's work from Morgan Burnett playing with that cast on his hand. It sure didn't seem to curb his aggressiveness in any way.
"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."
