Didn't even think about that until you mentioned it. Jordan Tripp was inactive last night.
A mistake. A really inexcusable one. That was worse than any of the pick-play calls. If you're officiating Aaron Rodgers, you have to know he does that. It either saved the Falcons a timeout, a penalty or a big play. That was not a good look.
All those things you mentioned, the problems that happened last night, are a player issue. Not Dom Capers' fault.
This is a perfectly fair point. And, no, it's not always foolish. But it usually doesn't work. Just ask the Buffalo Bills about trading up for Sammy Watkins, who was very much a Julio Jones-type player leaving college. The list of mistakes teams make trading up is much, much longer than the home runs they hit. Ted Thompson is averse to increasing his chances of making a mistake. That philosophy, too, is not always foolish.
It doesn't help. Of course, so are the New England Patriots.
Cut the game to three touchdowns in the third quarter. He was playing the long game. Don't see a problem with that.
It wasn't all that full at the start. Because, Atlanta.
I think they've formed the nucleus of a team that has made eight straight playoffs, which is historic. They also need to get back to the Super Bowl. It's also Week 2, so there's another time for these ponderings.
All right, folks. That's a good place to stop today. Thanks to everyone who participated. Join me next Monday to discuss whatever happens between Packers and Bengals.
