Not going to liveblog the end of this game, but why — with four minutes left in the third quarter — are the Packers not running the ball or throwing it short? Mike McCarthy is executing an offensive gameplan that entirely dependent on throwing the ball downfield. WTF? We have seen very little running and our short passing game has been almost abandoned in favor of intermediate or long-range passes.
On defense, we are getting very little pressure on Drew Brees. Bob Sanders seems totally incapable of making in-game adjustments. The Saints can seemingly do whatever they want on offense. Anytime Brees has as much time to throw as he’s had, he’ll throw darts all night and win handily.
