Seriously? The O is not stronger than the D. The offense is better than last season, and definitely better with C. Kaep. at QB, with all kinds of room for growth too. But better than the D? I don't think so! Certainly opposing offenses are doing a better job against us this season (like more quick throws to blunt our pass rush, and chipping/doubling Aldon), but lets not get ahead of ourselves here fellow fans. Our D is the corner stone of this team. And let us never forget it!!
Well, we all want what you're saying to be true. But it's not. We had two sacks all game against Rogers. Bad. Really bad. Repeatedly could not stop them. And our crap tackling gave them 14 points when we could have only given 6.
That's just unacceptable.
Here's who missed tackles in hte 1st half to keep Green Bay in the game:
Hey, these are our go-to guys. This is bad, dude. Really bad.
Personally, I think this is a real indictment of the coaching plan.
If we can't teach our guys to tackle, what are we doing? I have no idea. Picking our butt, counting aldon's fantasy sacks. That's what we're doing.
Really displeased. And again, we were paralyzed by the Rogers/McCarthy mystique from sending people, even though though Rogers was picking us apart with absolutely no pressure coming from anyone on the line.
We got burned in the first half. We didn't adjust at halftime.
Our D is a sponge. The gameplanning looked static as usual. And no Lemonhead to top it all off.
There seems to be some kind of seniority pecking order that seems to be interfering with sending in different looks/people, and it's hurting us. I don't know where its coming from.
