MM has to relish these moments when he goes up against a coach like Belichick. I thought one of MM's greatest games was that 2010 meeting. Nobody gave that team a chance and they were double digit underodgs heading in, and he out-schemed Belichick's defense with a backup QB. They came up short but I thought MM had that team about as well prepared as could be. Came right down to the last play, with Flynn just unable to get rid of the ball in time before he got hit He did the same thing last...

MM has made progress towards greatness this year and yesterday in particular. One knock on the offense is that it relies too much on AR making great plays after the called play doesn't work. What percentage of the Packers' successful plays happen as called? How many times does AR throw the ball on the 3rd or 5th step of his dropback vs how many big plays happen after things breakdown? That is one of the reasons I argue MM might not look so good without AR behind center.

To be fair, that argument could be stated for BB as well. He's had the luxury of a HOF QB for over a decade in NE.... HOF players, especially at the QB position, elevates the overall play of any team.

So now McCarthy doesn't even call the plays? Why does he even bother showing up if Rodgers just runs the show anyway. What a crock. Let's dig deeper...what percentage of called plays were actually the right call and Rodgers changed it to the wrong call? What's the percentage of called plays does Rodgers ignore and call his own play like Jamie Foxx in Any Given Sunday?

Huh? Strawman? My point was one small knock on the offense is that I wish the team's success didn't rely so much on AR extending plays and making incredible throws. It makes me more nervous about the team if some injury to AR did occur. However, when you have a QB with that ability a coach might encourage it and make it part of the game plan. That very well could be.

Every offense asks the QB to make the right throws or extend the play, but they all play to the QBs strengths.

It was an awful defense, and I became convinced of that about 3/4 of the way through the season, but that offense was that good.

There were times yesterday where it seemed Belichick made decisions like McCarthy of a few seasons back, and vice versa. @FS, RE: McCarthy and Rodgers. It's really not one without the other, is it? As Rodgers improved with his ability to see the defense McCarthy has given him more freedom, because Rodgers plays within the scheme. That is something Favre wouldn't do, and while that was exciting for us fans it drove the coaches (at least Holmgren and McCarthy) nuts. While it looks like the...

GB v. NE on NFL Rewind in a few minutes.... I heard NE rushed with a lot of 3-man fronts, which might explain why the oline looked so good. I will rewatch the game, minus alcohol, and see for myself.

I think they went 3 man front on the first drive, then switched it up after Lacy gouged them Also, they only blitzed on 14% of Rodgers drop backs. It's as if they thought they could take Rodgers weapons away and defend the back end. That worked in the red zone, but doesn't work from 32 yards out (Rodgers) or 45 yards out (Nelson).

Rodgers does two things very well. A) He reacts quickly and decisively against the blitz. He anticipates who is getting the one on one matchup and exploits it. Clearly, you cannot blitz him. 2) He goes through progressions as well as any QB alive. If you rush with three, Rodgers will check down and hit 8 different receivers all day long. Still nobody open? The guys scans the field and see's 1st down with his feet. Clearly, you cannot just go coverage on him. How about all the touch passes he...

This team is approaching, fast approaching elite status. IMO we need to wait for a few more games....there is plenty of time left till final grades are issued. The franchise was awarded elite status many years ago and will continue to breathe that lofty air for many years to come.

Our offense may be elite, but the defense surely isn't. They are indeed playing better, are good to very good against opponents scoring, but they aren't close to being 'elite'.

Fond Du Arrigo ·
With this offense, an elite defense was never required. The ability to force two or three punts a game, keep them out of the endzone occasionally, and hopefully force a turnover a game is more than enough to tear up this league when paired with Rodgers and co. They're playing at that level right now.

Interesting. For a post so emphatic about the ability to reason effectively, it is you who are here so lacking. Hint: Fond Du has no attachment to BB. Just honestly thinks he is a great coach (3 SB wins and 5 SB appearances might cause one to think that way and he's not alone). His attachment is to the Packers. The lack of use of gray matter is at this place - attachment. BB was never "his" and how could you fail to see that?
