• Chad Lundberg

    Not even worried about how many passing yards Griffin got. Packers only cared about the clock by the 4th quarter.

    This defense really is doing a nice job and they’re doing it while missing two key players.

    Aaron Rodgers for MVP.

    Can’t wait for Cincinnati!

  • Oppy

    A guess a win is a win, but what we really needed was for Rodgers to notch a 4th quarter comeback… Because wining while leading in the 4th isn’t as good as wining after trailing in the 4th

    ;)

      Personally I love it when the Packers kick their opponents butt, and the game is decided by halftime. Once again Packers fan showed the rest of the NFL why they’re the classiest fans in the League. Even after the headhunter Merriweather got a taste of his own medicine and met Mr.Starks helmet with his own, Packers fans cheered when he got up.

  • Turophile

    I knew this team was going to be good after watching them against SF. Packers gave the 49ers all they could handle and the Redskins are not even close to that team. A dominating performance this week and hugely satisfying – I’ll have a smile on my face for days.

    • Oppy

      I agree completely, with exception to this being a hugely satisfying performance. I find more satisfaction in a competitive game regardless of the outcome, than a lopsided game that is an easy win.

      That’s just me though. Great game for the Packers, not a satisfying game for me as a football fan watching a game.

      • Turophile

        That makes you more of a football fan than a Packers fan (imo). Nothing wrong with that at all, but I’m totally ok with a blowout (as long as it the Packers doing the blowing).

        • Oppy

          I assure you, I am a die-hard Pack fan, there has never been another team for me.

          There’s a reason people like to pay to see a good title fight, and boxing fans get angry when a top contender continually gets matched with opponents instead of contenders. I find it boring to watch a team march unchallenged, and after all, I watch football for enjoyment.

          Perhaps I’m just old school in mentality; stuff is more valuable if you have to work for it than if it is handed to you. I like the struggle.

  • ZeroTolerance

    Knew we’d have a 100 yard rucher – who would have thought Starks? Also, who would have thought the first int would be Neal?

  • Archie

    SO NEAL WILL SOON REPLACE PERRY AS STARTER? And Packer RBs next year = Harris + Lacy + Starks. Throw in Sherrod + Bulaga + Tretter. Finley = ? probably gone. Pack will stay with Raji + Shields.

    • Oppy

      Shields is going to get a big contract if he keeps up his play.

      Raji has been looking far better than I expected thus far, but even with the lack of large, athletic men in the world, I’m still not entirely sure he’s a must-sign guy.

  • Savage57

    Put the christening of the ‘new’ Lambeau in the W column. Season starts over next week. Cinti at The Jungle will be a good indicator of who and what this team really is going forward.

    Got to tighten up protection for AR. Cinti’s got some meat eaters on their DL.

  • Archie

    Three amigos + Starks + Finley is enough to overwhelm all but the better defenses. Another game w/o major injury = good. Burnett will be back for CINCY. Pack has got to have House on the field. He’s a playmaker! Good to see Capers was smart enough to mix in pressure packages today. However, once Pack took heat off QB, GB secondary looked awful again.

    • http://allgbp.com Jersey Al

      In his post-game press conference, MM made it seem doubtful Burnett would be back for next week.

      • Mike

        I’m fine with him sitting through the bye week and getting back to 100% health. McMillian had a pretty good bounce back week (no missed tackles to my eye) and Jennings didn’t look as lost/hesitant in coverage

    • Dobber

      GB secondary really only looked awful when the outcome was no longer in doubt.

  • GBPDAN

    I hopw Lacey, D Jones and Jolly are ok. I would like to see them, and Burnett, back for next week. Congrats to Starks, Arod and the whole team. That first half was awesome!

    • http://allpackers.com nick perry

      Jolly was back out there I believe shortly after I believe. I don’t know what it is with #1 draft choices for the Packers but Damn, can we keep one one the field. I would think Lacy would be cleared but I guess you never know with concussions. Get healthy guys!

  • Since ’61

    Good, strong game for the Pack. Need to maintain intensity going forward. Hopefully we have all our guys back for Cincy. Defense and O- line looking good after 1st two games. Go Pack Go! Thanks, Since’61

    • Art

      O-line looked great opening up gaps for Starks. However, I am still concerned with Bulaga allowing the sacks and Sitton has as many penalties in two games as he’s had all of last season. Also, I know a lot of the Washington offense was done during garbage time, I just don’t seeing the GB secondary giving up 1,000 yards in two games.

      • Nopainnogain

        Bulaga?

  • Alex Parkhurst

    We draft Lacy and Franklin and James Starks is light out. No one could have predicted that.

    That bozo from WA is going to get fined big time – Merriwether. What he did was so obvious. Twice. Hope Lacy is ok.

    Perry chased some RB’s from behind – good hustle

    Stupid network shows KC game. Better than “Heidi” and if you don’t that story – you are way too young.

    • Turophile

      Alex, the Redskins were guilty of too many head to head hits and not only Merriweather.

      For example, remember the play where James Jones stretched out for the touchdown (the ball came free), well the defender had a head to head hit on JJ that play.

      Redskins were undisciplined many times. They are going to accrue a lot of fines if they continue – shame Lacy got concussed before the NFL had a chance to come down hard on them for too much helmet to helmet stuff – maybe Merriweather injuring himself will give them pause, though I doubt it.

      • http://allpackers.com nick perry

        Merriweather is going o get fined huge for that hit to Lacy. Not only helmet to helmet but he launched himself as well. Never want to see a player get hurt and was glad when Merriweather got up, but I have to admit it, I thought serves you right. The guy is known for his headhunting and been fined before. Karma’s a Mother F’er!!

        • Savage57

          Didn’t have the game in ATL. Did Meriweather draw a flag on either of those hits?

          • http://allpackers.com nick perry

            No, but if you noticed last week several fines were issued no matter if a flag was issued or not. What part of YOU CAN’T LEAD WITH YOUR HELMET, id unclear for you???

    • Dobber

      “Stupid network shows KC game. Better than “Heidi” and if you don’t that story – you are way too young.”

      If you don’t know that story, you’re not a fan of football.

  • Chad Toporski

    Where are all the “sky is falling” and “Packers will likely go 0-3″ fans?

    I miss them…

    • http://allgbp.com Jersey Al

      Hitting up the Vikings blogs…

    • Kurt the Turk

      They are the same place they were last week: somewhere else. I didn’t see any “sky is falling comments” last week. Even the guy who said GB would start 4-0 said they would adjust during the season and end up in the playoffs.

      What I did read is dispute of the giddy praise heaped on the GB O-line after the 49er game. I did read comments stating Dom Capers is over-rated and his D under-performing. I did read comments saying Mike McCarthy made a tactical error in taking that 5 yard penalty on 4th down. I did read comments saying GB will win a lot of games in the regular season, but a SB appearance looks like a long shot.

      We will see about the SB. We Packer fans will probably argue about that penalty call forever. But after watching Seattle destroy the 49ers last night, we should stop pretending that no O-line can handle the 9er pass rush. It should be proven to everyone that the 49er offense can indeed be stopped.

      That’s not “the sky is falling” stuff. that’s just commenting on the games as they actually played out. Maybe you should go back and re-read last week’s comments.

      • Since ’61

        What happened last week?

    • Dobber

      I watched the game last night, also, and Seattle OL did no better job handling SF than the Packers did.

      If you’re hanging that assertion on the running game, that’s fine but note that the Seahawks only ran for 3.7 ypc. In the end, don’t give the Seattle OL credit for what the defense gave them through turnovers. Russell Wilson was hurried repeatedly (and sacked 4 times) last night and the score made it so the offense didn’t have to rely on the passing game at all.

      • Oppy

        Dobber, you can’t go throwing facts around like that.

        You’re going to make some negative Nancies start frothing at the mouth.

        • Dobber

          I teach chemistry…I know that just about everyone’s eyes glaze over and they quit listening as soon as you start throwing data around… ;)

        • Dobber

          Oh…and my wife’s name is Nancy…

  • http://GV889@aol.com Jerry

    Off Topic Here but the only thing worse than the Vikings are their Purple Pants. Who thought of that idea?

  • http://jersyal.com tim

    The purple pants were pretty bad, they made the Vikings slower I think, probably cost them a touchdown or two.

    On a different note, I am really glad we kept Starks over Green! Quick, decisive and tough running – so that’s what a running game looks like. its been a while since that’s been seen. I like it a lot.

  • http://jersyal.com tim

    I wonder if merriweather get fined on the play that he knocked himself out on. Hate to see him get hurt like that, but he was a little over exuberant with the old noggin. Hope lacy is ok too.

    • Oppy

      I still can’t believe he failed to get flagged on either one of those hits. Both blatantly used his helmet as a weapon targeting the opponent’s head.

      I imagine he’ll get fined for both hits.

  • Two Bears, One Cup

    Lovd the lanes we opened up for Starks.
    Hated the lanes we left open for pass rushers.
    Rodgers and the receivers played superbly. Finley was a beast – that one catch and run was the kind of thing you do in a video game and then call unrealistic.
    Defense looked solid. Not worried about the garbage time yards.

    • Two Bears, One Cup

      Oh, and Shields can fly. I think he still hasn’t reached his full potential.

  • jtmax

    Our offense is looking sharp and our front seven is solid as well. Our secondary is still a joke when it comes to tackling. McMillan is absolute scrub. TT is kicking himself for not drafting a safety in first 2 rounds. Hope Lacy is ok. We need him. Starks can stay healthy for so long and Franklin is not a 3 down back.

  • jtmax

    I’m excited we flexed our muscles today but non convinced that we beat a good team. Skins are not very good as seen from last week. Hope Cincy is not much better.

    • Dobber

      Three things:
      1. good teams win at home
      2. good teams beat the teams they’re supposed to beat
      3. even if Cinci IS markedly better than Washington (and they are), they’re not as good as SF or Sea. We’ll see how banged up they are after tonight’s game with Pitt.

    • Chad Toporski

      I am convinced the Packers can go toe-to-toe with the best teams in the league. Whether they win or not is usually a matter of a handful of plays.
