Packers Question of the day - Who Stood out?

Almost like a weekly ritual, it's time I take to the readers for their opinions. Who made their mark and caught your attention in the Packers' 23-16 win over the visiting Giants on Sunday night?

Good. Guion. He was really, really good in the run game.

Bad. R. Rodgers. Can't block. Slower than molasses. Had a TD go through his hands.

I vote him the worst TE in football. His ass is wider than my snowblower.

Richard Rodgers supposedly lost 20 pounds after last season.

He looks just as slow as last year. He can't block. He is never OPEN.

He has shown good hands in the past but let a TD go through them last night.

I can't think of a TE who gets as much playing time who is as bad as RR.

TT has a tendency to hang on to draft picks too long waiting for that jump from 1st year and RR is his most recent prime example,with his measurables coming out, I couldn't see what they saw in him to draft him in the first place,zero athletic ability,slow,can' t block and that is what I have seen since they drafted him,last night he looked like a boy out there,manhandled when trying to block, 1 catch for 8 yds,dropped one in the end zone,lets hope TT has realized that you can't polish a turd and next year pulls the trigger on a decent TE

Just because TT holds on to a player to long doesn't mean MM should keep playing them.. TT drafting a decent TE?? What never!! He has had chances to draft a lot of good one and then passes on them for the guy in the 7th that looked good in High School!!

I don't know if you caught it but an indicator on Roger's limited ability to block was that in the first quarter Jason Sprigg's was in for a few series as a TE, the TV crew didn't catch it but check it out, that says a lot. Yes he is very limited in getting down the field and yards after the catch but his hands have been outstanding, I was surprised he missed that corner throw for a TD. It will be interesting to see if Sprigg's gets more opportunities like this going forward or maybe with "Rip" from the 1 or 2 yard line in the backfield.

Me either, dude can't even block linebackers. Remember when the team had line 5 TEs? None of them are even on the team now. TT needs to find someone who can grade TE prospects.

Good - Gunter - didn't hear his name much at all... which is awesome for the risk we all expected. Honorable Mention to Fackerell and Clark. Rookies are showing nicely.

Bad - Jordy... Rough night, 1st INT was on him. Also, ILBs in passing game. Avoided much damage but potential was there for big plays.

Jordy confirmed my assessment and this applies to age more than anything: he got old. He lost a step. Seems to be balnket covered now and has to battle for the ball rather than a step in front and hall in the pass.
This is screwing up Rogers too who is waiting for Jordy to break away and it aint happening.

Thing is Jordy was open several times and Aaron missed him or was late with the throw. Clearly they needed to practice more but that did not happen at all.

Too often players say it takes 18 months or more post surgery to really be fully recovered. It sounds like an excuse, but I'm not going to pass judgement until next fall.

I have been going with a lot of negative takes on the other discussion boards.
This one I will stay positive.

The players that stood out in a good way...

Lacy, Cobb, Adams, OL, DL, OLB's.

Lacy and Cobb went beast mode. Breaking tackles and just out muscling players.
Adams had probably his best performance in a while.

The OL simply dominated. Rodgers had so much time all night long to throw.

The DL continues to get push on the opposing OL and stuff runs.

The OLB is the deepest I have ever seen. When they get production from Fackrell and Elliott who are probalby their 5th and 6th OLB's, you know they are deep.

Lacy,Cobb ,Adams. Lacy is still to injury prone for me. Lack of speed and trying to run over guys, just gets you on the training table every time. I feel another RB is still needed. Cobb was awesome last night. Fast on his feet again. Which brings me to Adams. This game was his best in a long,long, time. But he was, and is, no beast. He stood out on some very bad plays too. He's just to afraid of the CBs yet. I would not send him in the middle of the field, on the quick slants or posts. Why. He's just to afraid. A-rod is still having trouble. The best thing MM could do for both of them, is stay with the short passes , and have Adams go down the sidelines. I could not believe how many times R.Rodgers lined up outside like a WR. If they don't want to play Abbey, Montgomery, or Janis. Then put Allison on, a-rod needs another short target. The guy had the most catches in the midwest, he can catch, and take a hit. The thing I liked about the short game is: It controlled the Clock. It helped the defense.

"Lacy is still to injury prone for me."

With Lacy's running style, he's going to take a lot of punishment, more than the average RB. It's hard to find a feature back who is going to make it through 17 weeks without missing time due to injury anymore. RBs in general take a beating.

Yes, so why doesn't TT sign someone. Why wait for a new guy to fumble or make excuses, because he doesn't know the offense. You saw the cheap shot by #21 on Cobb last night. Cobb should not be a back-up plan either. And how long is Lacy going to milk his ankle. I'm not trying to be negative toward lacy. I just think the RBs are the biggest babies in the nfl now. Lacy is no Payton,Simpson, Sanders, Gifford. Dickerson, Brown. But it would be nice if I got to watch a tony Dorsett, Hill, Csonka, Tomilson etc. But I really don't look at Lacy as feature back. I think we put to much into stats that have a guy in the top ten for the year.

Adams still had that STUPID penalty that kept the Cobb score off the board. And he had that ridiculous OPI.

He just isn't consistent. He's like James Jones. I hope he figures it out eventually like JJ did. And I also hope MM gets him off the field soon if he doesn't.

My biggest smiles of the night came on Lacy's big runs where he was looking for people to run over. Ripkowski's run up the middle where he just kept going and the whole line was involved. Cobb making the first when we needed it most.

It is also really nice not to fear the fullback dive on 3rd and 1. Rip + great line play = 1st downs.

i could not decide whether to torture myself watching the Pack or watching the debate. i went with the Pack since that is a torture i am used to; and boy did they not fail to torment me. Why pay Peppers, Starks, Schum. Adams had his best night in a long time, but that just made him average. Cobb's very good night was marred by a key drop, but if the league does not fine that totally unnecessary hit on him, then i will find another thing to be mad about. and Jordy has clearly lost a step in addition to having drops that are just not HIM at all.

Jordy has certainly lost a step and the attempts to bring speed to the outside by inserting Davis/Janis and telling them to "run" is classic MM simplicity. And believe it or not, the strategy is not making the offense more dynamic.

Starks fumbling again and also missing a few passes that went to him stood out to me. His wide stance running style drives me crazy, too. I think TT will be drafting a RB, next Spring. The biggest thing that stood out to me was how great Cobb played. He was there every time we needed him to be. Schumm's punting left a lot to be desired, as well. It seemed the Giants started their drives at, or near, the 50 yard line all night long.
