Night and day. However you want to state it, it’s safe to say Mike McCarthy had lost the team. But finally, the Green Bay Packers came out and beat the shit out of team they should have beat the shit out of.
Atlanta Falcons? Go back to your dirty south shithole of a city!
I wouldn’t doubt the Packers will win out at this point.
Aaron Rodgers wasn’t great. He threw for 196 yards and two touchdowns. Dropped a goddam dime on one of those touches to Randall Cobb, though. And you said, well, 12 is still 12.
And then there was Aaron Jones. Sometimes he got stuffed because the Falcons were stacking the box. Other times, he had the vision to cut back and kill a run or a reception. That guy might be Le’Veon Bell. The Packers just need to use him.
Jones has 17 carries for 78 yards and three catches for 28.
GIVE THAT MAN THE BALL!
Meanwhile, Davante Adams was the man on the outside, per usual. Adams came up with not only huge catches, but big plays. Seven for 81 and a touch.
Defensively, the Packers blitzed Matt Ryan consistently. They came up with only one sack — by Clay Matthews. That put their corners on an island, but they held up just fine.
Jaire Alexander — he got beat by perhaps the best receiver in the game in Julio Jones at times, but that guy is a star. He’s going to be worthy of the shutdown-corner label. Kid can fucking ball.
And Bashaud Breeland had himself a damn game. Fumble recovery, pick-six. Re-sign that guy right now.
At this point, I expect the Packers to win out. I expect them to sweep the shitbag Bears.
