Run the table? No. I think Seattle will be tough. And this team has proven it will lose games it shouldn't, so it hard to pick any team like that to close the season with six straight wins. The bottom line last night is that the Packers season didn't end in Philadelphia, and it would have with a loss. There's still a long, long way to go before they're considered a serious playoff contender. What helps, of course, is closing the season with games against the Vikings and Lions. After last night, there's a chance those season-ending games could mean a great deal. We'll see.
Remains to be seen. Better question is whether they can stop a high-powered offense, period. The Eagles are not a high-powered offense. They have worse personnel on the perimeter than the Packers, far from the weapons of Tennessee and Washington. Let's see what they do when they play a better offense.
Go back to his film from 2011, and you really won't notice much difference at all in his throwing mechanics. The difference has simply been inaccuracy. You're right, that throw was ridiculous. There were many throws in 2014 that made me audibly gasp in the press box, much fewer over the past year and a half. That throw to Adams brought some oohs and aahs. Even Rodgers said he was surprised how tight the window became. Perfect throw.
Well, it would start with having an agreement in writing that Eliot Wolf would become GM after Ted Thompson. Not sure any NFL franchise would ever do that. The longer they wait, the higher the risk of losing Wolf to another team.
When he learns the playbook enough to get a bigger role. That's difficult for anybody in the middle of a season. It's why OTAs and training camp exists.
Getting healthy would be the biggest thing. Not losing a legit No. 1 cornerback for 15 games. Sam Shields' season-long IR has just killed this secondary. Injuries are by far the biggest problem this defense has had.
Could happen. Will it? I don't know.
I'd kind of be surprised if Julius Peppers played next season. As for Nick Perry and Datone Jones, I haven't looked at it very closely. Would think for Perry, the years would increase more than the dollars. Not sure Packers would bring Jones back.
No, Jordy Nelson is still the No. 1. Davante Adams is playing the best football of his pro career, and giving the Packers something at No. 3. I don't see him becoming a No. 1 this season.
Nope. Injuries happen everywhere. Even soft-tissue injuries. As Jared Cook told me last week, football is a 100 percent injury rate. Comes with the game.
Probably go with who's already there. So Linsley, but Tretter has a ton of value for his flexibility.
The could always tank. Short of that, they're stuck picking at the end of rounds.
Good question, and I'm not sure we'll know the answer until next season. There's a chance he could run better a year removed from his return. Or, on the wrong side of 30, he may never have the same speed again. Even if his 2014 days are in the past permanently, he's still a darn good receiver who plays the position well and provides plenty of production. It would leave the Packers needing a true No. 1 in the future, however. Which is why I'd throw WR as a definite first-round possibility.
It's never good when your QB has any kind of injury, but we won't really know the severity until today. Depends on how it felt when he cooled down, woke up this morning. Did not look like something that should keep him out, which is a good thing. But Rodgers' mobility has given the Packers their best run game this season.
Not the best run of first-round picks for Ted Thompson.
Goodson is not now, nor ever has been, a player they relied much on for defense. He's a very good special teamer. That's his value. So if he's out for the season, as I'd expect, it doesn't hurt the secondary. The key will be keeping Randall, Rollins, Gunter and Hyde healthy. They have a chance if that happens.
That is a great question, and I wish I knew. He was much more crisp, even with his reads. I don't know what the difference was, because to the untrained eye it looks like something that's within his control.
Hard to know what came first, the chicken or the egg. A secondary with plenty of holes doesn't help the pass rush. The lack of pass rush doesn't help the secondary. I think they play into each other.
Just 13 snaps. The Packers stayed mostly in nickel, as usual. When they're in nickel, they only use two interior linemen. That means Mike Daniels and Letroy Guion get most of the snaps.
They had a game-clinching drive that consumed more than 8 minutes. When you have a two-possession lead, you drain clock. So, yes, Mike McCarthy is smart for doing that.
At any position that touches the football other than quarterback, find better players.
Thought Scott Tolzien played very well for the Colts. Still right decision to let him walk and insert Brett Hundley as top backup.
I completely disagree. Every single coach in America, not just the NFL, would have called timeout at the end of the half to stop clock before third-and-11. It is how the game of football is coached. Let's blame the problem. Your defense has to get off the field on third-and-11.
Live by the sword, die by the sword. Hard to think the Lions can get through an entire season successfully when they trail in the fourth quarter each week. That's why I don't think this division is settled yet. Plus, the Lions play at New Orleans (never easy), at New York and at Dallas to close the season, not to mention a finale against the Packers. Could be a wild December.
All right, folks. That's a good place to stop today. Thanks to everyone who participated in the chat. If your question wasn't asked, scroll back through and read the replay. Until next time, take care.
