Initial Reactions to Packers vs. Cardinals
The defense. Do I really have to write anything else? I don’t, but I will.
Fundamentals: Poor tackling. Poor tackling. Poor tackling.
Soft middle of the field in our pass coverage.
Did I mention the defense yet?
Charles Woodson’s strip of Larry Fitzgerald in the first half kept the Packers in this game. Well, that and Aaron Rodgers is unreal. The guy defines calm and cool under pressure. Who was the quarterback before Rodgers again?
Mike McCarthy with a gutsy call on the onside kick – Mason Crosby nailed it (wish I could say the same about that field goal in the first half).
Ahman Green on 4th and 1. The veteran is still getting it done.
Greg Jennings Touchdown – Best catch of the day? Year? (In all fairness, Fitzgerald’s touchdown catch was pretty nice, too.)
Jermichael. Finley. Is. A. Beast.
It was a tough loss to stomach. With that said, it was one helluva game.
The Packers’ future looks very bright – Finley, Jennings, Rodgers, Matthews. Let’s just hope they can win one for Charles Woodson while he is still playing.
It was a great year. The Packers looked dead in the water with a record of 4-4. They turned things around, and I suspect they will come back even stronger next year.
