Sorry – Ravens D is not THIS good

Just horrible prep by coach and really poor execution by Hundley.

Hundley completely out of sorts

In good part because it seems he was poorly prepared for this game, Hundley looks totally out of sorts. We might need to look at Callahan – Hundley is playing that badly.

Wow – Packers unprepared today

November 19, 2017 by

Just looks like a totally different offense from last week – of course they look exactly like the offense of the 3 games prior to last week. Just totally unprepared. McCarthy’s offense looks totally disorganized.

Huge Win for the Pack!

  • I won’t back down from what I wrote about before the game (about this year being a real test for whether McCarthy is a good coach or just the beneficiary of having 2 Hall of Fame QBs), but this was a nice win. Not pretty but the team came ready to play for the coach and the coach came ready with a few gutsy calls. Have to give credit where credit is due. This was a good win.
  • Hundley was better today. He had a few mental errors that were odd (showed inexperience I guess) but he made some really nice throws today.
  • It was sad to see Montgomery go down as he loves beating up on the Bears and was playing great.
  • But it was also awesome to see Williams come in and run like he did. He averaged only 3.4 yards per carry but it felt like he fought on every one of those runs for the yards he got. He played inspired football and I seriously think his enthusiasm and relentless running style kept the team positive and playing inspired. Awesome to see a rookie jump in and take advantage of an opportunity.
  • Play of the game belongs to Marwin Evans. He got beat it seemed by Cunningham on that play where Cunningham lunged for the end zone – but he hit him just enough that it jarred the ball loose as he reached for the end zone. Great effort play where he kept going until the very end of the play.
  • Nick Perry was a beast today. He not only had 3 key sacks but he also was pretty good against the run.
  • Clay Matthews, on the other hand, the guy who gets 10x the attention of Nick Perry, continued to be marginally effective. He had a nice tipped pass and one decent tackle for loss but otherwise he was again, not really that good. I also noticed he has been lining up several yards away from the line in an effort to put a juke on the O line guy but it just does not work. He either needs to cut his hair or get traded. Or read this post, get ticked off and average 2 sacks a game for the rest of the year.
  • Mike Daniels is really good. If he had a bit more support on that D Line, I think our D Line could end up being a strength. Lowery does not do much and Kenny Clark is inconsistent.
  • Davon House led in tackles with 8, but that was mostly because he kept giving up passes to WRs and making the tackle 15 yards down the field. He is too slow to try to cover guys with ANY speed whatsoever. The extent of his utility is as a spot CB coming in ONLY to cover slow, big WRs ‘ or TEs. Even then I am not so sure. It concerns me also that he is starting in front of some of our better young guys like Hawkins, Pipkins and King.
  • The D did well to shut down the Bears running game. When it was apparent early on that it would be a low scoring, muddy affair, I was worried that Howard would go nuts. But he had 1 long run and 14 pretty bad runs. Nicely done D.
  • Adams was up and down today. His TD catch was great but his long catch to seal the game late was amazing…and it was a massive uncalled pass interference. He had to catch it one handed because the guy had his other arm. His drop though was a bad one at a bad time.
  • Jordy is really slowing down. That pass interference call he drew was a horrible call. He has never been good at separation as he has always relied on just making great plays and having a QB who is ridiculously accurate. But without Rodgers I am not surprised at all to see his productivity drop. Sad to see as he has been such an awesome Packer over the years.
  • It is weird that McCarthy has not done more to work the TEs into the offensive game plan. I know Bennett is gone but Rodgers and Kendricks need to be catching passes to help the offense open up.
  • This was a game where the team came out ready to play. It was nice to see them fired up. McCarthy called a decent game overall and I loved the aggressiveness toward the end going for a long pass to try and put the game out of reach. That took courage. He has a long ways to go to prove that he is as good of a coach as some think, but this was a step in that direction.

 

I love it that McCarthy called that!
