Yeah I know, I have been slacking lately. With the holiday, and the end of another semester, time has been a valuable commodity. Yet better late than never, here are your quick hits from Thursday's game against the Lions.
Packers 34 Lions 12
Watch game highlights HERE.
Watch what McCarthy had to say HERE.
Can the Packers ever start a game on a positive note? Maybe we just wanted to spot them some points to make it a game.
Can we all agree James Jones is better than Jordy Nelson?
What's up with the offensive line. You completely blow for eight weeks and all of a sudden things are "fixed?" Is pad level really an non-issue now? It's certainly baffling.
If that's the case, let's focus on penalties. Still too many, although better.
Tramon Williams played pretty decent.
Jarrett Bush sucks. He makes that pick and I might have left this out.
Nick Collins has totally elevated his game.
Charles Woodson is "the game."
Atari Bigby should star in a remake of the Invisible Man when he retires. Although in his defense, you aren't hearing his name called either way.
I'll join the Aaron Nagler hate club right now. Losing Kampman may be a blessing in disguise. Good luck next year Kamp, hopefully in the AFC.
Why on god's green earth can we not stop a kickoff return?
Mason Crossbars is officially not one of my "favorite guys" any longer.
I read an analysis somewhere that said Aaron Rodgers was playing good, but hadn't really attributed to the 2-3 more wins the season. Are you frickin' kiddin' me? No way he doesn't make the top 10 list at quarterback right now.
Still not on the Grant bandwagon. No consistency. At one point he makes a beautiful cut back run, and then it's back to the old Ryan Grant again. It was nice to see him on a couple of screens, but he couldn't get it done in the second half.
That was a cheap shot on Finley. I don't know why the Packers didn't let him have any payback. No doubt though, Finley is going to be a stud. That is, when he doesn't drop passes in the endzone.
I would rather be on the 20 than the 10. We would score a lot more. Seriously.
The linebackers had a nice game minus Poppinga who still sucks.
Special Teams: D
I watched the game while wading through family and a bazillion kids, so I missed some of the finer details that should be included in a more "Nagleresque" analysis. What was blatantly obvious was one thing: Charles Woodson. The man is literally taking over games. His stats coming away from this victory would make some guys happy as a grand total for the season.
I am pretty content at 7-4. If this team can continue to not beat themselves, they might have a shot.
