While most Packers fans are waiting with a short fuse to have a reason to want to see Joe Barry fired, the defense was the strength of the team on Sunday against the Saints. Credit where credit is due, Joe Barry and the defense overcame adversity of their own playing without key players, and kept the game within reach for the offense. We all knew good complimentary football would be necessary to overcome growing pains this season. The win over the Saints was a microcosm of that.

Jordan Love wasn’t perfect, but he didn’t have to be. He demonstrated the ability to put this team on his back and do what it takes to get the win. There aren’t many teams overcoming a 17-0 deficit in the 4th quarter to find a way to win.

Enjoy this, Packers fans. The Vikings are winless, the Bears are actually broken, and we’re watching the next era of Packers football grow before our eyes. Go Pack Go!
