How do you like that? McCarthy went for it on 4th and 5 with the game still on the line! Yes, it was a fairly normal situation to go for it – but he did! He didn’t run some give up play hoping to bleed the clock. He finally took the more aggressive path to win the game – not just hope we’d win. Of course, if Jordy hadn’t pushed off, he may not have caught that. But the mere fact that we went or it at a key point in the game and converted what was actually a long pass…fantastic. Really pleased to see that.

I know other WRs do this all the time, but I find that really annoying. He doesn’t make that catch unless he pushes off.
That was a great pass but it was massive pass interference. He grabbed his arm. A WR cannot catch it when one arm is being grabbed. Nonsense.
I’m not liking this sudden shift into a “prevent offense” as brother Steve calls it. McCarthy is quickly going to the go-nowhere run plays to burn the clock. Our offense has had their way with Philly tonight. Let’s just drive how we’ve been driving – be smart and get out of here with a win.
to me how much more dialed in Rodgers is today than earlier this year. He just seems focused very singularly on winning this game. We haven’t seen that look for a long time and frankly, it’s really nice to see. In fact, it seems the whole team is just here to win a critical game against a decent team. So far so good.
I really like it. McCarthy got bitten by a creative bug this past week because he’s set us up with a number of very different looks. As excited as I am about this development, I can’t help but wonder where this has been in the past month.
