Packers Seahawks Game Review

Green Bay Packers v New York Giants

According to Aaron Rodgers the Packers were supposed to be more physical this year. Unfortunately, he forgot to tell the rest of the team. The Packers kept it close and then everything fell apart. Let’s review the good and bad. First the bad.

1. Offensive Line: After Bulaga went down with an injury they replaced him with Sherrod. Sherrod looked like a guy who hasn’t faced top competition in a long time. Sherrod has to improve quickly. Bulaga is out four to six weeks at least. With Barclay gone for the year, and Tretter gone at least eight weeks the offensive line is thin.

2. Defensive line: Who knew the Packers would miss BJ Raji this much. The defensive line was shredded like good old Wisconsin cheese. I’m hoping that Thompson will at the very least bring Pickett or Jolly back for a tryout. If not hopefully someone else that can stop the run.

3. Play calling: The offensive and defensive play calling was average. McCarthy and Capers both were calling plays that seemed one step behind Seattle. If the Packers want to have any chance of beating Seattle or San Francisco the play calling has to improve dramatically.

4. Linebacking corp: Without Clay Matthews, this group of linebackers would be one of the worst in the league. Peppers first game, so I’ll give him a pass. Jones and Hawk have to go. They have been given to much time and there has been no improvement.

I could only think of one good thing.

5. Aaron Rodgers- he is still the most talented player on this team. I believe he is getting sick of carrying the team. His prime playing years will be gone before long and one Super bowl is not good enough.

Thompson and McCarthy know winning championships are what Green Bay Packers are all about. If they don’t fix these problems soon their legacy will be tarnished for not doing enough to win another championship.
