Packers XLV

Pack Wins on Crosby FG; Rodgers Sharp, Clifton Not

Posted August 27th, 2011 @ 03:08am

Like many of you, my eyebrows were raised when Mike McCarthy decided to go for two to tie the game in the closing seconds at Indianapolis. After all, it's the preseason, where OT is to be avoided at all costs. No one wants to see an injury happen in overtime. But McCarthy had something up his sleeve. He tried an onside kick after the successful conversion, the Pack recovered and Graham Harrell moved the team enough to let Crosby win it at the gun with a 50-yard field goal, 24-21.

After the game McCarthy said that kicking the extra point would have sent a terrible message to the team, so he went for two and the onside kick. You gotta love that.

Aaron Rodgers was razor sharp, the only negative that he was sacked as many times as he three incomplete passes: 4. That's too many times on the ground in a make-believe game. But when he was vertical, he was terrific: 19-23 for 204 yards and a touchdown to Jermichael Finley. The running game was mediocre and the eyesore on the line was Chad Clifton, who was abused by Dwight Freeney all night.

Once again, the no huddle was very effective and after the game Rodgers said he's trying to get the mechanics of the no huddle down in the preseason and he expects the team to use it in the regular season. Allowing Rodgers to call plays is a natural evolution of his game and will only make the Pack more dangerous.

Defensively, the #1 unit kept the Manning-less Colts in check until the final five minutes of the first half. Soon after Woodson and Matthews exited, Curtis Painter found a rhythm and Indy scored twice to go ahead at halftime. In the second half the two guys I noticed the most were the young backup linebackers: Jamari Lattimore and D.J. Smith.

One more dress rehearsal before the opener on September 8th. Coming Monday, my 2011 playoff predictions.

Vic So'oto had a good second half as well. He and/or Lattimore might help, in the outside LB dept, to make up for the temporary loss of Zombo.

Yes, Cliffy did have some difficulties with Freeney, but it is Freeney. My concern is "where was the help for Cliffy?" Your major concern in preseason is health, especially AR. Whether it's preseason or not you protect AR at all costs. The running game is still suspect. No real long runs as of yet, but is it our line always practicing pass blocking and not knowing how to run block? I'm not overly concerned a this point because we are keeping their D honest, but we need to see some real runs.

Burnet blew his coverage on the first TD when he bit up instead of staying home. If this had been a real game, it would have been a huge mistake. How was the rest of his game? Also, I thought the defensive run stopping looked poor and the tackling angels tentative. Do you have a good excuse for this? My guess is that the Pack might be great with a lead, but if a team can keep it and run, we might be in trouble.
