Mike Neal should be in the good. He was getting a lot of push today it seemed like.
The O-Line did a great job today I thought too. Rodgers seemed to have a lot of time to throw against a very good pass rush. Maybe that’s why he was off today. Not used to that amount of time.
I thought TJ Lang was a champ. It can’t be easy to make the switch from LG to RT in-game and play well.
Especially being that he’s playing one armed.
Yes. And against one of the best front 7 in football.
Mason goes into the bad. He will get it together. Starks goes into the good simply because he could read holes decisively and explode after nearly a whole year off the field!!! Oh yeah!! F’n great to see both those RBs cooking.
Starks incompetence put the team’s greatest asset at risk as Rodgers had to dive to recover his fumble. The man is more mennace than asset for this week.
Yes, and as Zach Cruse says in his article, Starks was only in for 4 pass plays and his poor blocking lead to 2 QB pressures in that meager amount.
He can run but he cannot grasp blitz pickup and has also demonstrated a fumble problem in the preseason that obviously is still of concern after Sunday’s game.
Injuries = Ugly
Crosby, I have no faith in the guy. Never thought he was that great, now I just hope he’s not the deciding factor in a game.
GBP 4 LIFE
r u serious? crosby used to be automatic. missing kicks is a new thing from him
Automatic? Really? I think last year might have been his only campaign where he was 80% or better. The # widely viewed as good.
Starks’ fumbling was a tremendous liability but I’m not sure you can put him in the bad in good faith. His running helped seal the game late.
Aaron made a stupid move going for the ball. That’s on him.
It wasn’t stupid to dive on the ball. I hope he does that 100 times out 100 in a contested game.
It’s football and Rodgers isn’t made of glass. No was it a particularly dangerous play (didnt involve twisting his body or anything).
Starks also got destroyed in pass pro at least once (first play).
You gotta go after that ball. Every time.
I don’t know what’s happened with Crosby. last year he was fantastic, I was shocked when he actually missed a field goal.
This year, I’m honestly surprised when he makes one. It’s becoming quite a big liability.
If the Giants game ends up anything like the one last year and we need to rely on Crosby to win it, it may go the other way.
Am I crazy to think that even though Donald Driver hasn’t really “earned” his final year yet, he _is_ going to be a significan asset down in the stretch?
Maybe it was the cold; with all of the broken fingers from catching fast balls from Farve and Rodgers over the years, the cold has to be hard on DD. Maybe it was the limited number of reps he had this year. Either way, his hands were scary bad yesterday.
What are you talking about Wagszilla? Aaron made the only move you should make when there is a loose ball. Dive on it angrily.
How ’bout a ‘Good’ for TT, the team’s depth?
Please explain how Bush is in The Bad?
A couple horrific tackling attempts, coupled with his insistance on getting in opponents’ faces after simply doing his job. Shut up and play the game. Oh, and make a freaking tackle.
Agreed. Rookies should have to be pulling your six year vet out of scuffles.
Whiff of goal line tackle on Arizona’s 1st TD
The TE motions out of the backfield to the weak side and everyone shifts. That’s Burnett’s side. He crashes inside and the Cardinals have lots of open field on the right side. Maybe it’s on Bush, but he’d just shifted over from being the ROLB to something like LS. Burnett would appear to own the outside edge contain.
I agree. Isn’t Bush implicitly in the Bad?
Love to get Aaron’s view om Starks pass pro grade. LIkely a reason he’s in the “bad” category.
As much as I hate to see Aaron diving for a loose football, calling his recovery “stupid” (see above) when you’re up by a TD and on your own 30 is a bit of an overstatement. I thought it was a head’s up play that fended off a complete momentum swing. Could have been a totally different game if #12 was just spectating back there.
Hopefully the bye allows Mason to get his head on straight. I had zero confidence in him making that 44 yarder.
Bush is just a hothead. Hes like Cortland…..just not very good.
Lets hear it for Eric Walden. He played his butt off yesterday.
He was everywhere.
Did Jermichael play yesterday?…or this season?
I’d like to see someone do an in-depth analysis of what’s going on with him. I have a hard time believe his BS about being double and triple teamed. Though it sure does seem he isn’t running vertical routes like he used to. All these 4-6 patterns and then done – guy hasn’t broken more than a few tackles all season.
And no one cares, but he’s been a flop on my fantasy team.
Hasn’t been the same since his knee injury in ’10.
Personally I think he just lost the fire. He started reading his own tweets and it went to his head.
Just isn’t that athletic anymore. A glorified Donald Lee.
I dunno. I think he had a really good 2011. He’s just completely vanished this year. It’s staggering, really.
There was a lot of after-the-whistle bullshit from the Cards – which was FINALLY called toward the end of the game.
How about Tim Masthay’s hex on Patrick Peterson? Dude could not even fair catch his punts!
Masthay’s hex goes far beyond just Peterson. Dude is shutting down return games all over the league.
Crosby is an excellent kickoff man, as strong a leg as Chester Marcol had and a magician with the on-side kick, never saw one better than him. In addition he never shies away from a tackle when it is up to him to be the last defender when someone breaks away. As positive as that is he has a history to choke when he HAS to make a field go to tie or win. In the one losing season McCarthy had if Crosby made the clutch kicks they would have been .500 or better. Mike Hart of the Journal said he dressed as “Captain Hook” for Holloween.
Anyone have an update on Richardson. Have been waiting to see him in the mix
