I hate those throwback uniforms. I think the broncos will break that sackless streak today, it’s actually kind of shocking that neither Von Miller or Bradley Chubb have gotten to the QB. Pack wins this game 17-10
I wonder if the wet ball is affecting Rodgers throws at times. Two very ugly overthrows that should have been easy completions. If I am the Broncos, I keep running the football. GB can’t stop the run until they prove otherwise
Good win. I am concerned though with LaFleur’s playcalling. Someone brought it up here, but you have to wonder about his playcalling after the opening script of plays. Worth monitoring. It seems the key to this team having success will be getting off to fast starts on offense and putting the other offense into catch-up mode. If a team gets up early on them and starts to run the ball, this squad could be in for trouble. Still a good effort by the defense, made the big plays when they needed to. The off-season additions on defense are looking incredible right now. Even Rashan Gary got in on the action. Jaire Alexander is turning into a hell of a football player.
I’ll say it for the 2nd week running…A win is a win.
But before i get into the mood to get into this game maybe, later. I’m going to give someone his credit because i don’t think i’ve said anything positive about him after he was drafted #12. Yea…i’m talking R. Gary. Credit to him for his sack and 1 solo tackle.He made a play in this game, and it was a highlight reel play…nice job. Later on, i wanted to take some time and give credit for Tramon’s effort today. Unfortunately there wasn’t much effort, so i’ll have to postpone that for another week.
Plenty of other credit to be handed out, and some critique
Don’t forget the fumble recovery.
If i was on the field, right there, and someone kicked out my walking sticks (as i call them) i could have fell on it.
Sure you would have fallen on the fumble. The question is would have you fallen on the fumble before or after The Broncos offensive line missed falling on it, or P. Smith missed falling on it, or Z. Smith missed falling on it? Sounds easy
LOL…i’m a bad man Howard!
Look, i’m goofing, relax. I gave the man his due, that’s what i’m willing to do and it seems i may have been the first in here to do it. He has played in 3 games, he has 1 solo tackle and one sack. I’m not voting him in the Pro Bowl quite yet.
When the man shows more, he will be credited, that’s how i roll.
I’m sure Gary and some other Packers are anxiously awaiting your stamp of approval.
JC….i gave the man some credit. You bent out of shape because i didn’t mention his god damn fumble recovery?
Lighten up Francis.
No, I was actually just messing with you, just like you claimed you were doing with me. I guess you are the only person that can do such?
Well I guess if you want to escalate it fine have at it. I still respect your opinion on Packer football and football in general. Not sure why you want to resort to calling me names. I’m sorry you are so bent out of shape over the subject.
I will not respond to any of your comments in the future. Feel free to call me anything you would like.
A win is a win . . . I’ll take it! 3-0 is about as far from where I thought that they would be at this time . That defense is keeping them alive. Rodgers seems to be getting better (slowly). Still not sold on G. Allison. Great to see that M. LaFleur is giving more snaps to the other TE’s! But man does that run defense suck! While at the same time our run offense sucks. It is patently obvious that our offense is NOT making good adjustments after the first set of scripted plays. Through the first three weeks I would give our HC/OC an (F-) for adjustments after scripted plays called. It is telling that Green Bay struggled badly on third down conversions all friggin’ day. It appeared (once again) that the D line of the opposing team was well aware (and quite ready) for our running plays each and every time that we ran them. Granted, there were a few good runs, but we were mostly unable to convert any third downs (save one) via the running game (J. Williams). This, I believe is what is stopping the Packers passing game from growing faster. It appears that our O line is being beaten to the LOS every play. Rodgers IS being smart with his throw-aways’ this year. Jimmy Graham appears to be playing on a different team . . . MVS will become a good WR2. Savage is a MOFO, and the Smith brothers rock! Add in J K Scott’s punting and Crosby’s field goals it spelled win today. Kudos to Martinez for the hustle as well.
I agree…..i think it’s time we have to stop pretending we have a running game. Like MMSUCKS noted, we have our moments, a 10 yard run there, a 12 yard run there, but nothing dynamic whatsoever. I kept reading where Jones is a threat every time he touches the ball, i’m still waiting. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not just the runners, and i like both of them, it’s everything put together, the line, the plays, etc. We just don’t have a run grading O line, it’s just reality, and what yards per carry Jones gets, it’s usually because of his skill. I’m hoping (dreaming) we see more pass plays to our backs out of the backfield with some empty space (Alvin Kamara style).
I want to speak on the free agents play and Gute, and give credit. and i will if earned, but it’s 3 games, so far so good, i’m impressed, on the defensive side anyway.
We have to start seeing some progress and participation from the receivers, i’m not really laying blame, i’m just saying, whatever is the problem, it needs to be addressed, Who is the #2. I know, but i mean consistently. I feel like MVS has it in him, the offensive needs to be able to showcase this dude to a degree, he has skills.
Kevin King is going to cost us many more big plays this year. I think he’s by far the weakest link on the defense.
I went postal after the rashan Gary pick but he is starting to look like he could be a nice role player for the pack. Thst would be a solid contribution from a rookie pass rusher.
Jimmy graham… once again….jack fucking shit.
I am still trying to figure out what Jimmy Graham’s role is on this team. Gutekunst had an amazing off-season by the looks of things, except for the fact he didn’t move on from Graham. Had a fairly costly holding penalty today, and zero catches. Like, what upside is there? To the best of my knowledge, he isn’t drawing double teams. I don’t see him opening things up for other receivers. He hasn’t even been a big red zone contributor. I don’t get it.
Also as much as I despise reddit… heres N interesting stat. The Smith’s 6 sacks combined against the Broncos are a half sack more than Perry and Matthew’s combined for last SEASON
Matthews and Perry last year… Lol. What a joke. Perry went from playing for roughly $11mil a year, to being unemployed with no offers on the table. That says a lot about all parties involved.
How nice it is to have defensive players that actually produce on the field. That has been on my mind all day. Refreshing for sure.
It has been strange watching the defense carry this team for the past three weeks but I’ll take it. As I said above, it is refreshing. Aside from a few scarce flashes during the early scripted plays the offense has looked lackluster. 10 points in week one, shut out in the second half in week two. The only TD pass today was on a broken play, just like the only TD pass in week one. Whatever, a win is a win. Can’t rely on that all season though.
The WR position after Adams and MVS is a big question mark to me. As Stig and Kato said, what is the purpose of Jimmy Graham? If he keeps this up he’s gonna be considered the new Jeff Saturday of FA acquisitions.
The defense is rolling. Sure there are always things to improve on but it has been fun to watch. Good to see Gary and Savage get in on the action today. The Smith’s have definitely brought leadership, production, and character to this defense. It’s about time.
Our OLBs do a fine job pressuring the QB as well as containing outside runs. It is on the inside that we get steamrolled.
We were not successful at running it between the tackles. Our power ranking is, to no surprise, among the last of the league (see Football Outsiders). We also have a higher-than-average number of stuffed runs.
On other occasions I objected that Rodgers held on to the ball for too long, or bolted a perfectly safe pocket. Today he faced pressure coming through the middle rather often. He bailed the team on at least two plays, throwing darts after rolling out of the pocket. Can’t complain about today’s throw-aways, as he had rushers in his face slipping past the line. Gonna side with PF4L on this issue today.
