The Bigger Picture

The Bigger Picture




I know I am usually the master of bringing disaster, but for today everyone needs to calm down. In fact, we may even look back at this as yet another turning point. Let's take a closer look at the picture.





You knew it was going to happen, there was hardly a person who had this game marked down as a win at the beginning of the season. So I don't understand the sudden doom and gloom by Packer fans this morning. The Packers were due for a letdown, and they got one in a hard pill to swallow fashion.


The entire organization and the fan base got a little too comfortable last week. Everyone was confident we had made the playoffs, and the coach and GM perhaps felt safe in their positions for the first time in nearly a year and a half. Enter the down and out fighting like a dog to stay alive Steelers.


It's nothing but bad timing.


Not that they should have, but everyone came out complacent. That tends to happen after rolling teams for five games straight. Not only the players with their drops, missed tackles, and shanked field goals, but the coaching staff as well with their vanilla play calling and one dimensional train of thought. I don't think the better team won, but focus and desire sometimes gives you the one extra point that you need.


No doubt I think some things need to be addressed, but chances are things will probably evolve as is. We might see a kicker come in (as we should) but if history holds, it will take a miracle to make that happen. Jarrett Bush will most likely continue to suck, while celebrating like he won the Super Bowl after every special teams tackle. Yet, don't expect any moves, just hold your breath in hope that things will get better.


The fate of this team, as I have preached all along, is going to boil down to their discipline and desire. Nothing more nothing less. So calm down Packer fans, perhaps this loss will be exactly what the Packers need to refresh their sense of urgency. Step back, take a deep breath, and look at the big picture. 


It's just a lamp.

It was interesting watching Mathews and Jenkins get held as much as they were.

Oh, now I get it. A lamp!

As for the article: I agree. This loss was not that bad. No need to panic. The Packers can probably wrap up a playoff slot with a win against the lowly Seahawks in Green Bay next Sunday.

It was a kick up the ass that this team needed. Just look at how we, only just, kept the Bears at bay. We were getting complacent before this game. It was only when we realised the Steelers were bringing everything to Sunday that we woke up a little. Now we need to use this loss to give us the desire to finish strong. It's clear that Capers has too much confidence in our DBs, perhaps now he'll look to rush the QB a little more.
