Game Thoughts Packers/Panthers

November 10, 2019
  • That was a hard fought game. The game was closer than I thought it would be. I didn’t think Carolina would be able to keep up as I assumed our offense would be in redemption mode after last week. But Carolina hung in there until the very end.
  • Our run blocking today was very good. Aaron Jones averaged 7.2 ypc and Williams averaged 4.8. Of course both backs are really good RBs which helps. But the line opened up some really nice holes.
  • The defense continues to give up huge yards (nearly 430 today). Going into the game today we were averaging giving up 402 yards per game. Good for 5th worst in the NFL. But true to form, the Packers followed their bend don’t break formula to hold Carolina to 16 total points. Coming into the game the Packers ranked 12th for fewest points per game. As much as the defense does concern me overall, it counts for something that scoring against the Packers is much harder than getting a bunch of yards.
  • I agreed with Aikman today when he pointed out a few times that Rodgers had guys open and just missed them. It was odd – Davante, Lazard, Graham all were pretty wide open on a few plays and he didn’t even see them. Conditions may have contributed to his ability to see things out there but still, not ideal.
  • There were a few concerning calls made by the officials today – that went for the Packers. That roughing the passer against Rodgers in our own end zone was such a bad call and it changed the game in that moment. Frustrating that the officiating still has such an impact on the games.
  • Overall – I’d call this a good victory. Imperfect, but a victory nonetheless.  Carolina is not a bad team. Kyle Allen was pretty impressive to me – I think he’s better than Cam Newton. Nice for the team to head into the bye week with a victory like this.

Graham so slow

November 10, 2019

I liked Jimmy Graham and I was excited about him joining the Pack when he did but he is so incredibly slow. It’s time for another TE to get his playing time.

King might get cut yet this year – wow

This isn’t on Davante

November 3, 2019

It may be tempting to think that the sluggish offense has been throw off rhythm by Davante coming back but I don’t think that’s the case. The playcalling and execution today are so bad – without Davante it wouldn’t be any better.

Against the Patriots we’d be down by 40.

Rodgers looks awful

Wow – his throws are bad, his timing is off and he just doesn’t seem into this game at all.
