The Packers are going to have to get up on the receivers and get physical and hope for the best. They can't keep playing so far ofe.
Well, if that doesn't show that you are totally outmanned today, nothing will. The Packers just don't have an answer for the Falcons.
You knew Atlanta was going to score a lot, but what you didn't know is that the offense would not.
The best the Packers can do is get on the board somehow with a long drive and then try to make some adjustments at halftime.
Matt Ryan is 15 of 22 for 187 yards and a touchdown, 109.5 rating.
Seems like it, but there's a lot of time left. Rodgers and his receivers are going to have to finish some drives. I mean, really, this should 17-10 at worst. If the offense was holding up its bargain, the game would still be close.
Don't put it all on the defense. We knew Atlanta was going to be tough to stop.
It is because he shouldn't be covering Jones. Sam Shields or Damarious Randall should be doing. But Shields is hurt and Randall is always hurt. Gunter was a fourth-team corner going into this season.
Like make Shields healthy? That would help. Draft some corners, sure. But it's hit and miss as Randall and Rollins have shown.
Packers picking up the tempo and going no huddle.
I've been surprised at how well Nelson has played. But it's obvious Adams and Allison aren't offering much. At some point they need to take a shot downfield with Janis or Davis
Rodgers throwing off his back foot with a guy in his face is not going to get it done.
Packers are going to have to force a turnover or get a three and out.
I think Rodgers wanted a late hit on that last pass, but I think he's wrong. He was following through when the guy hit him.
O-line is not the problem. Rodgers has had plenty of time. Rodgers didn't seem ready for that blitz off the edge and got rid of it while he was off-balance. If Cobb catches it will standing up, he's got a chance to make a move for the first down.
Montgomery came back, but I agree, they have to get him the ball.
As good of a day Joe Thomas had last week, he's getting killed today. Can't cover these backs or anyone else for that matter.
They need to go with Burnett up in the box.
Capers is definitely focused on stopping the run, which is what he has to do now. Can't let the Falcons just run the clock out.
Ball is out and the Packers had every chance to jump on it. Ryan missed it.
That is an absolute killer. Right there for Ryan to get.
Forcing a punt, but they should have the ball in Atlanta territory.
Great punt. Fair catch. Ball will start at the 10.
If Packers can score a TD here and go in 17-7, they'll be very fortunate. They have not put any pressure on the Falcons with their offense. Have struck no fear into their defense.
I think they should clear some things out and let Montgomery get in the open field, either with short passes, screens or draw plays.
Janis in the game now for Nelson.
