Gut Reactions: Packers pummel Lions

Aaron's gut reactions to the Packers victory over the Detroit Lions.

Gut rections

  • This defense needs a lead.
  • Dear Father in Heaven, I'm not a praying man, but if you're up there and you can hear me, please let Davante's hamstring be ok. 
  • I saw a Lions defensive back's soul leave his body on one move from Davante 
  • Way too many drops. 
  • Chandon Sullivan got picked on today and answered the bell, for the most part. 
  • Jaire Alexander was SO close to a pick six on the opening drive. 
  • You don't pay Aaron Jones because he's a running back. You pay Aaron Jones because he's a running back and a wide receiver.
  • Kenny Clark. I miss you. 
  • Rick Wagner is a savy vet. 
  • Mike Pettine is getting way too predictable. When I can tell his guys are going to drop out of a pressure look into a 3 man drop sitting on the sofa, you can bet opposing NFL players and coaches can. 
  • Rodgers yelling at LaFleur for taking a time out was so pure.
  • Safety play is suspect no matter which safety you're talking about. 
  • Gary splitting the double team and getting the sack at the goal line was just *chefs kiss*
  • Good game from JK Scott. 
  • Two weeks in, this team is absolutely me playing Madden online, Get a lead, and coast. 
  • Go Pack Go.

I listened to the TV for maybe five minutes and turned on the radio. The radio was about 6 seconds ahead of the play, but I found that kind of nice after a while, except on a few plays like Jones' long run. I knew the result before I saw it on the screen.

(Aaron Jones)..."Spent the off season working to gain power in the lower half of his body, which is his legs, so he could have more strength and power in his legs"

Greg Jennings is certainly complimentary to the Pack, and knowledgeable- he just too verbose

After the 1qtr. the Packers dominated this game. I think Rashan Gary had his best game as a pro, 2 sacks and 2 QB hits. He helped force Stafford to throw the pick 6 to Sullivan.
Aaron Jones unbelievable. Rodgers would have had another monster game without all the drops. Needs to stop. OL played well.
Loved Dillon’s run to close out the game. Aside from injuries the Packers are looking good. Go Pack Go. Thanks, Since ‘61

Z'Darius Smith, Preston Smith and Rashan Gary are one hell of a top 3 OLB group. I don't watch the other 31 teams enough to rank them as the best group or top 5 or whatever. All I know is that I'm not worried about the Packers edge rush as long as those 3 are healthy.

AR wasn't sharp early. Underthrew the TE, overthrew Jones down the sideline, completely off on the swing pass to Jones, and then later threw behind Davante who made the catch anyway for 17 yards.

I disagree. I thought they were all very catchable balls. The swing pass to Jones was leading. I think they even mentioned that in the broadcast. Of his first four incompletions, I would put at least 3 on the receiver. The jones overthrow down the sidelines was in a good spot (which is the one I held against him). They were just hand checking all the way down the sideline. That slows you down and the ball was half a step too far. They easily lost that hand checking. He was 11 for 15 at that point. The tonyan throw got ripped out. Jace just dropped it. The worst ball of the night that I can recall was the short one to MVS near the line of scrimmage.

Drops were widespread. Lazard had a bad one, Tonyan too, the MVS one in the end zone was a tough one but he had another, but the worst ones were Sternberger. He had a really poor game. I like Dillon. Nice to have a back who can run when the opponent knows it is coming (and not named Jones). Williams played well today too. Nice backfield.

Sullivan not only made an impact, but it seemed to ignite his play on D. Hopefully he now goes forward from there. Jackson made a really nice sideline play. Scott too. Good to see young players getting snaps late.

Didn’t notice Greene. Thought Redmond showed his value. Not quite sure how much credit the D deserves for tightening up. While the Offense was perhaps our best D lineman, the D did improve. Look forward to some analysis of what changed. Very glad to see that we stayed aggressive on D throughout. Gary had a really good second half.

Still, I think the need for another big man is clear. This need will increase as the weather impacts the playing surfaces.

Injuries worry me. Ervin, Linsley and of course Adams. Let’s hope we get all of them back fast!

MVS had a much better game than before. MVS’ drop in the end zone seemed to be due to him tripping when he turned and his body falling so he couldn’t high point catch the ball (still his fault but not as mentally egregious as past drops). Overall encouraging how he took those hits to the head and got right back at it. I think he is going to really be valuable as the season progresses. Hope for continued improvement.

Really hope for improvement amongst bottom of DL or another signing.

I’m optimistic Clark and Turner (RG) return and start against NOLA

Lots of kudos to go around. The plan has been good. The O-line is performing through some injuries. The QB is getting it done. Last week, the WRs led the way and this week it was the RBs. The TE group is the one area that has not come out firing on all cylnders.

I agree no one on the team should be embarrassed. I also am fine with the passion/frustration that quickly came out of AR. It’s not his first reaction that matters it is if that frustration/anger persisted. That would interfere with the team executing the next play.

The real issue is anyone calling TOs in those situations at all. That might be something a teammate could respectfully bring up as a suggestion to MLF and AR. Yes MLF has to work at deciding quickly on the play call to get it to AR and AR has to watch the clock judiciously (which he was). But if it goes to the last sec, risk it, take the penalty and save those TOs for later in late game situations. The gains on successful plays when AR expertly reads the D alignment and using TOs in more crucial situations is more valuable than 1-2 delay of games (AR just has to get it down to 3-4 down to the wire snaps not like 7-8).

I think it’s arrogant to act in that manner as a response to what the head coach is calling on the field- like he knows better than the coach. Lots of replies on my take-most don’t see it my way- that’s cool. I ain’t always seeing it the right way. I’ve got kids that play , they love AR, and watch the game sitting next to me. I’m trying to raise em resilient, and to value how things are done. If my kid did that, I’d be disappointed. What if he aimed his F bombs at Devante, or AJones when they do something wrong? Probably wouldn’t be viewed with as much forgiveness. Maybe ML should F bomb him next time he misses a wide open RB in the flat with no pressure?

Not just 2-0, but a dominant 2-0, especially on offense where every analyst thought they needed a WR weapon for Rodgers. It appears that is not the case.

The Packers coaches and personnel dept draft for their view of the team to play the way the HC wants the offense.

The Packers offense is by far the highest scoring and productive (by yards) in the NFL. They know what they hsve and need, you don't. Every team has weaknesses.

Patrick was up and down. He usually is better in pass pro but he gave up a couple of pressures and a sack. His run blocking was not so good though he did pancake a guy. Jenkins looked good. Linsley is a guy that would be hard to replace if Gute can't find the money to re-sign him. The OL might work out if Runyan comes through and the jury is out on the other two OL draft picks.

I like the way you’re contemplating next year's offensive line two weeks into this season. I’m going to suggest a template.

You release Bakhtiari and Linsley. You move Jenkins to center. You put Runyon at guard. You sign a younger, cheaper replacement for Bakhtiari AND use a Day Two draft pick.

I think if we’re running all these misdirections that maybe we don’t need to spend a fortune on a traditional dancing bear at Left Tackle.

Reality. Lions held to 89 yards on 21 rushes. Between the time it was 3-14 and it became 34-14 , the Lions didn’t do jack squat, on the ground or in the air. I would call it “clamping down.”

We had a narrow three point lead at the half but the Lions never once snapped the ball with a chance to take the lead. Time of knockout? About 30 seconds into the second half.

Peterson had a 25 yard run.....take that away and he was 6 carries for 16 yards, His backup was about the same.

Detroit did not run the ball on us ver well. That’s a fact. Adjust your narrative. We stopped the run without Clark. If you’re a Packer fan, you should be happy about that.

I've been talking about his broken confidence for the last year, it was great to see him get a real confidence building moment in a scenario where he has historically struggled- locating the deep ball while in trailing coverage and making a play on it without grabbing the WR.

Couldn't be happier for JJ. Hopefully a turning point in his career.

Jackson got a punt return rep too. He didn't do much with it. But he did it in a real game, not in a practice. I'm not sure if that was because Ervin was hurt or the coaches were trying to get some reps for guys down the depth chart.

Those last 6 minutes, I did see plenty of the latter. Which was a good move. Those reps might pay dividends when the wear and tear of the NFL season forces those guys into more meaningful situations.

Jon Runyan, who was probably OL8 in the pecking order, has been called on in both games so far. It happens and the next man up needs to be ready.

We have a lot of “good” WRs. We may not have another all-pro WR, but some WRs (MVS and Lazard) have the potential to improve to “great level” (not all pro).

Plus with Jones, other RBs and improvement from the tight ends this team, in this scheme, with the expert distribution from AR could definitely compete in a super bowl.

The issue is if the D doesn’t solidify on the DL and better teams score at high rates, dominate TOP and don’t give GB’s O enough drives to compete.

Don't know why he hasn't been able to shake the drops as a pro.. but if he can figure it out, he could be a real threat that stretches a defense and opens up the middle of the field.

Defense Still soft in the Middle. Jones should have been signed by now. What a great catch at Wr. The OL still needs improvement. Rodgers still can scramble. Kicking game was excellent. Still to many penalties. Clean it up. Jace Sternberger raise your Hands. Use them! And speaking of hands? The drops are frustrating. Still to many question marks at WR. It's time to play your best!

Worst drops were at TE. Lazard has a couple, which is highly unusual. My concern at WR is depth not quality after 2 games. Ervin got hurt but perhaps the best catch of the day came from another RB, Jones along the sideline on 3rd down.

Tonyan has a bad drop but came back after and looked to be getting in the groove in addition to a very nice play on his TD. I hope so because Lovett wasn’t Deguara and Sternberger doesn’t look ready this season. If Tonyan continues to improve, perhaps we will be good, but at the moment It’s TE play I think is our weak spot on O.

If Ervin is out for at least one game it will be interesting to see if they elevate Shepherd or Begelton (similar quick players), or elevate Foster with the premise of seeing what he offers. Shep probably but don’t think any of these guys become a temp returner. That would be one of the CBs likely.

Really hope they were being cautious with Davantae’s hammy and he isn’t actually going to miss a game.

The weaknesses on this and other teams are likely going to be mostly dictated by injuries, but yeah depth TEs need to improve

Gary played well. I personally still compare Watt to King. I need to move on, but it’s tough to not feel that one sting still. TJ is a stud. That might be why others tread lightly with the Gary pick.
AR had a few bad throws, and seems to go into a mild panic when GB is scoring with runs. Might be wrong, but I think he’s still in love with his own stats. This ain’t gonna be a 45+ TD season for him- not that kind of O anymore.

Anyone who actually paid attention to Gary's play on the field in 2019 is not surprised that he had a day like today.

He showed many good things last season in his limited snaps. People saying he was a bust are the type of people who don't watch football players play football.. They don't know good play unless it's quantifiable on a stat sheet.

Let's keep it real.

Gary's first sack came at 7:45 left in the fourth quarter when GB was up by 20 points. His half sack came at 3:08 left in the fourth quarter when GB was up by 20 points.

Gary had a nice game. He still had to beat an NFL offensive lineman to get those QB hits/sacks. But they didn't occur when they were most needed, they came when good players take advantage of the game situation.

sacks as a stat are over rated. his plays on the goal line probably don't register on stat sheet but led to a safety last week and a pick six this week. If you start to nit pick the "quality" of his sacks, you better do that for everyone. Nick Perry got rich with meaningless sacks. He's had an excellent start to the season no matter how you quantify it. With his youth and energy, I'm excited to see the season progress. GPG

I've always been cautiously optimistic about Gary, even though I wouldn't have drafted him in that spot. But c'mon... he had 1.5 sacks against a Lions O-line that was missing 2 out of 5 preferred starters... plus the Lions were in a big hole and everyone knew they had to pass. If this is the best that we have seen from Gary after 19 games in the NFL I would think that the jury is probably still out.

Yeah, he had a nice game. People act like it was some sort of coronation.

Two weeks in a row he has had a direct impact with pressure on QB's that have led to interceptions leading to scores. This is after there was constant chatter all training camp about his improved play and intensity/focus on and off the field. To me he is answering the bell and justifying his first round selection so far.

Really liked how the Packers responded down 14-3, BOTH offensively and defensively. The offense seemed to be sleep walking and the defense just flat, but both sides of the ball really played well after the first quarter.

HEY... I'm sorry but Arron Jones CAN have more than 12 to 15 touches a game. Whoever still thinks that isn't paying attention to the Packers last 20 games dating back to last season. Not only can he, he SHOULD get more. 20 last week, 22 this week, all seems good to me.

If this is a sign of things to come for Mr. R Gary, a lot of people are going to be eating crow sandwiches round here. Nice game kid!

Hank,
Jace will settle in as he is too good not to be a good TE. Just like MVS he needs to focus more on seeing those passes into his hands. The positive for the GBP's is that unlike the last 3-years Graham is gone and the Packers have better all around TE's to go to until Jace gets it togehter.

I would really like Jones to be healthy in December and January, and that’s more important than touches. He’s so freaking good at getting into the end zone that you want him when you’re near it, but maybe other backs could take some of those touches until we cross midfield.

Everybody should agree that Gary looked good. He’s caused quite a few premature evaluations and hopefully he’ll continue to stay healthy and improve.

Our RBs rolled up over 300 yards in total offense on 35 touches...nearly 10 yards/touch. Dillon can’t get on the field. Rodgers only threw 30 times. This is what the offense looks like when you run more and pass less.

I’m OK with Rodgers expressing his anger; he misses absolutely nothing pre-snap. He also knows a few mistakes and the game might have a different result. I sure MLF and the team will be fine.

Jones is special as a RB and as a receiver. I’d like to think he, Bakh and AR (as a group) will need to get with Gute to see how to get them re-signed. Without those two, Rodgers isn’t going to have as much fun.

Gutey and MLF are young and talented with a no prisoner approach to draft, FA, and on field excellence. Us Packer fans are in a great position to enjoy the success of the team for quite sometime. Really feeling good about the strength of the team at QB with all three QB's. Boyle is under rated IMO.

Random thoughts: After the horse collar on MVS, the O line punished Lions DL the rest of the game. Lazard likes to hit people. Is Davante Adams the best route runner in the NFL. His cuts were so sharp you could see the knife edge. MVS is a tough tough player. Defense played well. Forced a top ten QB into a game changing mistake. Playing the Smith Bros and Gary inline with good secondary coverage by both boundary and slot forced Stafford off schedule all game long. SS were better than giving credit for. All about secondary coverage in the 'new NFL'. Rodgers saw something in the Lions scheme. Have to look in the all-22. Young veteran team playing at a high level early on. What's not to like.

HUGE PROPS to MVS for bouncing back from the wicked hit on his head/neck on the overthrow along the sideline. Just a few plays later, he made a great catch on a similar one where a lot of WR would have gotten alligator arms.
He may be maturing into a stud right before our eyes.... remember even Davante looked horrible in his 2nd year. It takes time for WRs....
