Barking at the Door, Going for More

November 29, 2007

That’s what Bryant Gumbel just said. What is he talking about? What a tool.


More 3rd and 19

November 29, 2007

Sorry, I don’t mean to dwell on this. But what a huge play that 3rd and 19 turns out to be. The Cowboys would have had to punt from deep in their territory. The Packers would have gotten the ball — down three points — at somewhere near midfield.

Talk about a momentum changing-play.

3rd and 19 — Same as 4th and 26?

November 29, 2007

The Cowboys converted on 3rd and 19 from deep in their own territory. The Packers appeared once again to be playing zone and Patrick Crayton caught the ball with nobody within twenty feet of him.

Two plays later, Atari — throw a flag — Bigby committed a personal foul.

In twenty seconds we went from having the Cowboys pinned deep in their territory, to threatening once again to score.

Quarterback Controversy

November 29, 2007

Aaron Rodgers should start for the rest of the year.

Okay, just kidding. But it’s pretty clear that he drinks Pabst.

Second Half Gameplan

November 29, 2007

I would give the Cowboys a huge dose of Ryan Grant. Fine for Rodgers to do the quick passing game, too. Odd that the Packers went downfield play after play in the first half. We should return to the offensive gameplan that got us here — multiple wide receiver sets and lots of Ryan Grant.

Greg Bedard: Money

November 29, 2007

Shortly before halftime, the Journal-Sentinel’s Gred Bedard speculated that Favre “might have been hit on a nerve.”

On NFL Network, Steve Mariucci said that Favre stopped by and told him he was…hit on his elbow and had been struck on a nerve. He was having trouble gripping the ball.

Does Mike McCarthy Read Packergeeks?

November 29, 2007

Yes. As we have been urging, McCarthy replaced Jarrett Bush with Tramon Williams.

is to play-by-play as Jarrett Bush is to man coverage.

Thinking Ahead

November 29, 2007

If Favre is done for the game and the Packers don’t close the gap, Mike McCarthy should quickly move to sit his starters and valuable players. If the reason we didn’t play Charles Woodson, et. al. was because we were playing conservative for the future, we should be consistent. Sit our valuable guys if the lead stretches to more than 24 points by halftime.

Favre Out — Game Over

November 29, 2007

If he doesn’t come back, we lose. Oh well, hopefully we’ll get another shot at the Cowboys in the playoffs.
