This is a pass first offense whether Rodgers is having his best game or not we still need to pass to set up our run game. Too many punts and not enough first downs to keep our Defense off of the field 2nd half.

Many think that the Packers didnt live up to their potent offense, but i guess they didnt watch the game because Grant was out. I think having Grant in the backfield really keeps our offense multidimensional, but having him gone really forced us to pass the ball more. And the conditions werent right either as it was raining. and yea, scoring 27 points on a good defense with a so-so offense is really good. Just hope the Packers defense doesnt meltdown against elite QBs again.

He’s one of the best 4-3 DE’s in football right now, and he’s on the upswing of his career.

Some liquored Philly fan was probably riding it around the parking lot with 4 rent-a-cops in his wake; meanwhile, Philly players are getting their legs bent backwards and then having to be carried off the field in agony, and Ryan Grant is having to kangaroo it to the locker room.

Maybe if we had 3 refs in the backfield, they would catch it when A-Rodge is tackled by his facemask. Maybe.

Very surprising strategy to pay less attention to the Packers’ proven weapons in Jennings and Driver and instead concentrate on taking Finley out of the game. I wonder if more teams will do the same. Seems even more risky to me than worrying about our WRs and conceding Finley some catches. I was calling all game for us to take a shot down the sideline. We finally did so, and it resulted in the game winning TD.

Are we questioning our passing game? Really? Get real. If Philly can keep getting that kind of pressure from their ends, they will be a decent defense for anyone to contend with. Our offense scored 27 points in a lackluster performance. If anything, we should be encouraged. 27 points, on the road, in the rain, in front of 70,000 fans just let out of prison, in the first week of the season. If that truly is “a terrible game” for A-Rodge, then we are in pretty good shape. By the way, New Orleans, Minnesota, and Dallas scored 30 points. COMBINED.

Everyone can slow down with the Mike Vick raves. The Packers did not game plan for him, and secondly, the Packers were nursing at least a two score lead during every single successful drive Vick had. The ONE drive when it was a one score game, he got STUFFED.

All that matters in September is the W or the L. Come January, it won’t matter HOW it happened.

I kept thinking “I hope his cleats don’t slip on the concrete.”

And yeah I was wondering the same thing, two major ACL tears and a couple concussions and it seemed like there wasn’t even a medical staff within 100 miles! They were probably too busy pumping the stomachs of retarded Eagles fans throughout the stands…

Seeing the Chiefs are up next I would expect Grant to sit a week to heal up.

Was anyone else curious as to the absence of a cart to help injured players get off the field? Why were these guys forced to walk off of the field, with their faces grimacing in pain?

I’ve always been a fan of Jackson and I like the way he was protecting the ball yesterday, however at the same time it did hinder his ability to shuck some tackles and pick up more yards after contact. I don’t think he can handle the workload so let’s hope Grant is ok.

i found this which I find suspiciously vague:
