How Packers Lost to Falcons Again & What Lies Ahead
The Atlanta Falcons currently own the Green Bay Packers. They proved that again in week 2, dominating the Packers much like they did in the NFC Championship game.
What was this game about? The big story was injuries. Injuries, injuries and more injuries. The Packers were handicapped going into the game and they quickly became more so.
The next biggest story was defense, or lack thereof. The Packers couldn’t stop the run and they most certainly couldn’t stop the pass. We’ll discuss the reasons for those failures. Sure, it was partially a lack of talent — Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins — but the defensive scheme was faulty as well.
That’s a recipe for disaster. Julio Jones is a great receiver, but he was running around the field wide open for most of the game.
Perhaps the biggest bright spot was rookie cornerback Kevin King. We have an idea of how the cornerback situation will play out moving forward.
We’ll also relive the disaster that was the end of the first half and start of the second half for the Packers. Who was to blame for debacle that happened during that time? We’ve got a good idea.
It wasn’t all bad, though. We’re not handing out game balls, but there were several players who did show.
We’ve got the future of the Minnesota Vikings — Case Keenum, haha! We’ve got a look at the horribly bad Cincinnati Bengals.
All of that and Shawn’s injury conspiracy theory. Wait til you get a load of this!
