Packers Aftermath: Cowboys Sent off Into the Sunset

Packers Cowboys catch reversaL Dez Bryant

Now that the Green Bay Packers have sent the Dallas Cowboys back home with a loss, thought I would share a few quick thoughts on the game:

I couldn’t watch live, as my great Niece was getting baptized and I was the Godfather (couldn’t miss that…). So went into “cone of silence” mode (left phone at home, no radio in the car, made them turn off the TV in the restaurant we went to afterwards, etc.). Got home and watched the game on DVR with my daughter. Just finished up.

A few quick thoughts:

Play of the game: Quarless recovery of the Cobb KR fumble. If Dallas recovers and takes it in there, they’re up by 15 and game was probably over.

As bad as Davante Adams looked in the first half, that’s how great he was in the 2nd.

Brad Jones – TD-drive extending penalty a game.

I’ve said this before, but no one else talks about Randall Cobb’s blocking. When lacy breaks off a long one, it’s because he and Nelson are picking off cornerbacks or safeties.

In the first half, with Rodgers struggling a bit, kept wishing the Packers would use Lacy on the checkdowns or throw a screen or two.

These referees were VERY generous with the spots all game.

Carolina gave Seattle a really tough game and actually beat themselves with mistakes. Gives me hope for Seattle but I sure wish we had a mobile Rodgers.

  1. I keep reading from so many Packer fans that the Packers need a miracle to beat Seattle. I completely disagree with that feeling. Let’s look at some of the wins this year for Seattle. We have SF, St Louis, Arizona (sans Palmer) all twice, Giants, Oakland, Philly, Washington, and lost to KC, Dallas, and San Diego. I know they didn’t hand pick their schedule, but come on people, this was not a tough schedule. No where on this list do I see teams like New England (though they did beat Denver, but so did Oakland beat Denver). In addition, Aaron Rodgers will be one more week healthier,perhaps somewhat more mobile and regardless of their 12th man, the Packer’s offense is clicking. When Jordy is double teamed, there is Cobb, Adams, Rodgers, Quarless. The Packer O-line has been premier lately, keeping Aaron safe and the D-line gets to the QB. Even Dallas all-pro line allowed 4 sacks today. To say the Packers need a miracle is so far from the truth. And you know what? That’s why they play the game.
