    Rodgers and the offense.
    Defense stepped up again against a " high powered" offense.

    Duds is special teams. Shouldn't be having those issues week 10 of the season.

    Studs- Rodgers, Cobb, Nelson, Adams, Offensive Line, Lacy, Guion, Peppers, Matthews, Tramon, Hyde, the Arizona Cardinals, the Cardinals defense, the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Duds- Whatever was up with the XP's(To date, Crosby had missed one in his career), and the blocked punt.

    I'll skip over the obvious choices.

    I'm gonna give Guion a "stud" note for smacking Sanchez in the Jets first possession. As noted, keys to winning would be hitting Sanchez early and getting the offense off to a fast start. The game was effectively over in the first quarter.

    I've noted on several occasions, to vociferous objection, that Crosby's game goes meaningfully south when the temp gets below 45 degrees. The first FG, a 27 yarder, was barely inside the upright; the second FG was low enough to be blocked; the blocked extra point was low. My TV coverage cut away to DET @ AZ for the 4th. quarter so I did not see how or why he missed the 50 yarder.

    The pass blocking was very good, the best I've seen in quite awhile considering Philly has shown quite a decent pass rush all season.

    That lick that Guion put on Sanchez was impressive. He's got a few moves up his sleeve and he is not someone you wanna meet unabated in a dark alley.
    Dud: 2 xtra points missed ? Thats an anomaly in this league

    Rodgers & receiving crew, as usual.
    Guion. He did a great job today!
    Matthews again this week played great!
    Hyde for the punt return
    Lacy
    Davante Adams for floating in the air while doing a Lambeau Leap
    The defense as a whole

    Duds:
    Aside from Hyde, our special teams didn't exactly shine today.

    As noted in the pre-game analysis, Guion is a better pass rusher than run stopper like all of the Packer front 7 except maybe Daniels. Like Howard Green, just-a-Guion can make a play from time-to-time even if he's not a particular answer to anything.

    By way of post mortem, there are some interesting stats surrounding Foles pre-injury.

    In 2013 he threw 317 times and was sacked 28 times. In 2014 he was sacked only 9 times with 311 attempts, a remarkable record for an immobile QB not named Peyton Manning. And yet the low light clips show a guy throwing off balance and/or into coverage.

    After watching tonight's game, the low sack count could not be attributed to the O-Line which looked fairly ordinary in pass pro. Foles evidently put a priority on not being sacked. Was he feeling some pain, did he become gun shy, or was it a mistaken approach by design? I guess we'll get a better idea next year (or maybe late in the year if Sanchez continues to be who we think he is).

    I can't imagine Foles faring any worse than Sanchez today.

    Studs: Da Packers.
    Another win and again Dom Capers.
    (C'mon man! It's time to give him credit!)

    Duds: Told ya guys before that Sanchez is overrated.
    I honestly don't know why the NFL media is going nuts over this guy after just one "comeback" win against a weaker team. (The Panthers)

    Studs: Lang and Sitton for being grown *** men and playing the game the old school way..."tape it up".

    DUDS: [​IMG]

    Come on Double S. You seem to be a reoccurring recipient of this dubious distinction. I actually quit griping about you a while back when I realized you are like a cockroach and simply never die. I have nothing against you as a person Sean I simply think you aren't very good or at least good enough to be running special teams on this good of a squad. The offense almost always lives up to their end. The defense is up and down but these last 2 games have been niiice. Plus there are many more variables with defense as a whole in comparison to ST where it's pretty cut and dry on what each play will entail short of the occasional home run play. For years we have watched as your units underachieve. This went wrong that went wrong. Some crap excuse comes up and before you know it Slocum has been pardoned more times than a death rower in California. Get him gone already Coach! We all know that come playoff time a botched play here or there change field position which changes game-plan which changes scoreboards. This looks like a team we had a few years back in that they are starting to play with some serious fire and both the verbal and physical leadership is showing up on the big plays and that's the stuff everyone listens to. I think we have more than enough quality special team cats to run much cleaner and consistently. The only constant (other than Mason but I am ok with him) in the ST futility is you and me thinks you've had long enough to put together a stout unit that doesn't make stupid errors as often as yours do.

    Damn, you would think I wasn't pumped about the game?!? We looked really good again and I think Clay in the middle owns a big part of that. He is still getting to pressure the QB and actually sacking better since the move but more importantly his athleticism is causing problems in the middle where they are used to attacking us. It is well known that Hawk is no Hawk Island and for that matter he isn't even a reef. TE's could roam the middle knowing that Hawk would be close but most times juuust not close enough to matter. Runners would typically have more space to operate because A.J. is good at one thing and that's running full speed in a straight line. He either gets you or he runs by you like a blur. Claymaker has freaky athleticism and uses that quick twitch crap to maneuver in tight spaces and be where 50 can't be. I like A.J. He is a constant tough guy who gets guys lined up and you always know where he will be like it or not. I believe 52 has enough talent to be really good there and that these first 2 games are more the new norm than a lucky transition. We are starting to get some steady pressure from the line and Teddy needs some lovins because Peppers is proving to be a baller. Pep is making big, game changing plays on the regular and I hope people realize that Tight Was Ted chiseled that coinpurse open for the first time in a while and it's paying dividends. We have a lot of playmakers on D and if and when they start clicking could be a unit that gives a lot of teams a headache.

    The offense is balling and that side needs nothing but praise. 12 better get his second MVP this year or there is something wrong with the voting process. He is playing at a level that other's just aren't. I was telling my wife during the game and trying to explain how sick it is that he almost never gets a ball picked. Some guys get lucky and DB's have stone hands the day they square off. Most QB's are in the "he will throw you one" camp but AR just dices fools when he is playing in this zone. It is so fun to watch and all I can say is damn we have had a lot of good ball to watch and appreciate for some time now thanks to our franchises wealth in QB play! Can you imagine being a Browns fan or a Bucs fan or a Falcons fan? I feel blessed to be born where I was and raised by a family smart enough to raise me the right way. The green and gold way. Go Pack Go and let's keep stomping follks!

    Slocum's fault Masthay couldn't handle the snap and Crosby kicked a low extra point?

    Plus, they bottled up Sproles and had a punt return TD. They also blocked a punt last week and have had solid return coverage all year. That certainly helps us with field position.

    The special teams is nowhere near as bad as you say it is.

    There are two kinds of stories you can always assume the mainstream media outlets will flog to death:

    1) As in the case of Sanchez, a story that touches a nerve in the New York market.

    2) Any news relating to QBs who have a history of gaining yards and TDs on the ground to complement some expected air production; those are the guys who get drafted high in the fantasy leagues. This applies even to guys of questionable ability or who've never played a snap (Tebow then, Manziel now).

    As playoff time approaches, more attention will be paid to the guys who are actually playing well and winning.

    Was I dreaming or did I see our team return a very loooong punt return for a touchdown?
    I'm not too sure because it was a bunch of guys in blue wearing a logo-less yellow helmet.

    Funny how just two missed extra points when we clearly have the game in the bag becomes a really big deal to some.

    Blaming the coaches instead of the players is getting very, very old around here.

    You are giving credit to the coaches (As well as the players.)
    Finally someone else who is also willing to give credit where it is due!
    Thank you.

    Slocum should have run put there and put glue on Masthay hands right before the snap!
