I will never understand why defense don't just tackle receivers in that scenario. Why let them off the line? Just grab and pull them to the ground. 

Right. Take the penalty, force the FG.

Great half by Atlanta.  But you can never count out Rodgers.  That dude's got 9 lives.

Yeah, they'll probably make a bit of a run in the 2nd half but I don't think it will be enough.

Nah...Capers held this together as long as he could withscotch tape 

Its on Thompsonand the front office believing too much in Rollins and Randle and letting Hayward go.

 

But the offense also can't get shutout in a half.

To be fair, Hayward was coming off multiple injury plagued seasons, and they were expecting Shields to be a pro bowl CB.

no harm.  like a punt.

Technically, they could have killed a little more time without the INT.

Yeah didn't expect the Packer offense to not hold up their end. 

Indeed.  I wanted to see a great game...not a one-sided blowout.

And if Nelson hadn't barely touched him, he could have ran for a lot of yards.

You're right.  I also got the Irish curse in a bad way.

Per @NFLResearch, it's the first time the #Packers
have trailed by 24-plus points at halftime in the Aaron Rodgers era -- since 2008.

See now that's a good tweet my friend. :thumbup:

Those betting the over are in trouble.   I don't think Atlanta can score 62 pts

Does Joe Buck ever watch the game? That was incomplete 10 seconds before he called it. God I hate his calls. 

I didn't really like Madden at the time, but these guys make me long for those days.

Luckily, I don't have to listen to this crew too often.

I thought his right foot was down when he caught the ball so getting it in bounds again didn't matter

That was my thought too - very close there and whether it was out the 2nd time

I agree to an extent.

But he didn't sign for big money.  Shields was a risk as were the two 2nd year players .

They need an overhaul of the CBs

And quit putting Don Barclay on the field

Al Michaels has become the same way.

This is the Green Bay Packers we know and love.

It is? You mean doing things they don't actually do since Rodgers took over?

At NFL postseason challenge, I'm 189 out of over 250000 and yes, I will keep you all posted. I can win it if PITT can win.

Falcons have been pretty much flawless tonight.  What a juggernaut.  I'm not sure how my Steelers will take them down.

Perhaps it is because he's never truly been healthy, but I think the Packers biggest defensive problem, is that Clay Matthews is just another guy now. He's no scarier than Perry or Peppers at this point.
