To be down 14-0 in the first few minutes and come back like this tells me this team may have a bit more strength mentally than I thought. I like it. Even if we don’t take this game in the end I like that we’ve mounted this impressive comeback.

Not what I would have predicted. Unbelievable defense today. Capers is calling a fantastic game. Matthews, Jennings on fire here.
Watch that Matthews replay. Stunning play right there – just stunning.
The whole offense looks out of sync today. The line is not playing well, Rodgers isn’t playing well and McCarthy isn’t calling a very good game. Poor combination.
I think we’ll see just how critical Finley is to this offense today while he’s out.
Granted he was beaten pretty badly on that pass to Gresham – but that was a great strip by Jones there. A heady play. I like that and while Aikman is overstating Jones’ value as I write, he has been more solid than I thought he’d be so far this season. Still no Bishop, but solid.
I take real comfort in that effort there. He hasn’t been called upon much this year and that was a very solid kick right there. Nicely done Mason.
I don’t know if it’s the defensive pressure or what but Rodgers looks really bad today. 2 for 7 for 25 yards. Not good at all. That last pass to Cobb was bad overthrow and the one just before that to Quarless was underthrown. Come on Rodgers.
I love that he fought for that one. Great one-on-one defense by Shields. Just a great play that could really shift the momentum of this game. Nicely done Shields.
I don’t see how that isn’t a penalty. He went right for Finley’s head and while he got shoulder too, he clearly hit his head. I think that is exactly the reason that play was outlawed.
