+ Aaron Rodgers looked about as vintage AR as you can look. And particularly amazing considering who he has to throw to. 

+Opie Taylor averaged nearly 54 yards a punt with a long of 57. Jeebus. 

+MLF and Rodgers just appear in a ridiculous zone. And again, see above. To have an offense, regardless of opponent, appear that well oiled is a Hell of a testament to MLF's play calling. 

-The Packers miss Darnell Savage. He needs to get better fast.

 

This can be plastered over every thread for all I care. Fucking ridiculous.

AR, MLF and the Packer offense

-

Defense was painful to watch although they did redeem themselves somewhat with the three red zone stops. 

Return game. Like the Shepherd story but he's not getting it done. Fair caught at least one he didn't need to and is giving the team nothing on kickoff returns.

+ So far, that MLF hiring looks pretty good.

- So far, the D can either be the savior or the goat. 

Would you say GB has yet to put together a complete game, or have they?

Not without Adams on the field.  The backfield is in full gear and signs of life from Graham.  I think the D still has some work to do as well.  It's kind of like a train slowly picking up steam.  Just stay on the tracks.

I think if both the D and O put it together at the same time it will be a sight to behold.

Watched a replay of the Rodgers-to-Williams TD. Romo: "Great play design." When was the last time you heard a football guy say that about a GB play? 

Yeah, it's been many years.  MM3 definitely got too comfortable and MLF is a refreshing change.

So today the O had to bail out the D and noted above, it will be scary when they both put it together.  This has been a very fun season so far as we watch 12 and MLF figure each other out along with ABG work with his pieces too.

+ Jones, Williams, Vitale, MVS, GA, Kumerow, Lazard, Graham, Tonyan all contributing. Did I miss any?
+ O line able to give AR the smallest of windows to let him do his thing.
- Far too many Raiders running wide open. I know that is the NFL these days, but against better weapons on better teams that needs to be cleaned up.

If packers were to make a trade before the deadline, it is looking more like they need defensive help. Again....they are relying way to much on turnovers. 

If you have a defense that generates turnovers in every game, are you really relying too much on turnovers?

+ We won decisively with backups, Aaron was perfect, Graham looked good, Jones caught a touchdown.

- I did not get to see the new sackdance from the Smiths. Their TEs caught too many passes because they were open.

Yes. Odds are as you get late into the season and into the post season the turnovers will stop coming.  Have to find a way to stop scoring drives if turnovers aren't there.

Right now we're still a popcorn D.  Lots of drama both ways but enough big plays to have the happy ending.

Aaron Jones block on the MVS TD.   HFS

I saw lots of zone today, I guess I kept hoping that, since zone is his scheme, JJ would get some quality time in the defensive backfield.  He had been seeing the field a little more (until Detroit).

You missed some but also added an inactive player. What was the contribution, back rubs on the bench?
