at least in this game. Wow.
Just called Calvin stopping right over the middle by Hawk. Usually a guaranteed catch but bad pass here.
This is frustrating to watch. Just when McCarthy shrewdly called on Quarless for a few plays, he then went with a poor play to Lacy and another busted play for Rodgers. Detroit’s D has been solid but we HAVE to find a way to distribute the ball to other guys and I hate to say it, but we should sit Lacy. Lacy is simply not as effective as Starks – at least in this game – actually over the course of the season. We should be playing the best guy back there and Lacy right now, odd as it may sound, is not that guy.
Offensive line – also – is really struggling. I think Lacy’s effectiveness is greatly compromised when the O-Line is just off as they are today.
I like those playcalls because it pulls the Detroit LBs wide and should open up the middle
I love seeing that. Peppers totally whiffed on that but great hustle by Neal. That’s a pretty solid defensive stand there.
I really like seeing that. We’ve been missing that for so long on this defense. If he can figure out how to make a difference on more downs, he could really help us.
But also a terrible decision by Lacy there. I know he was messed up by the fact that Lang missed the block but he ran right into Richard Rodgers when there was space right. But here’s the thing – you don’t put Lacy in in that situation. He’s slow when turned parallel – put Starks in who is guaranteed not to lose yards.
That guy has been one of few players in the first couple weeks who has been ready to play and looked sharp. That was a great catch. I’m liking this defense today.
