    Studs
    Randall Cobb a good TD

    Donald Driver finally seeing the endzone this season

    ST getting a block punt for a TD would be huge.

    Good Run D


    Duds. Aaron Rodgers very off today.

    General D was bad today.

    OL was having issues.

    Mason Crosby missing a easy FG.

    They threw the graphic up there regarding last blocked punt for a TD was in 1990- I couldn't remember the last time they actually blocked a punt.

    I'd have to agree with everything here. I'm not sure i'd call Rodgers a dud though. only mark on him was his fumble, which may have not "technically" been a fumble considering the tuck rule.

    Studs Brad Jones, CB's did a pretty decent job, Davon House-- sweet blocked punt, Cobb, Driver

    Duds RB's, Offensive Line, No pressure without blitz means defensive line is sucking the big one today, A-Rod had a negative performance, Mike McCarthy's playcalling, Mason Crosby-- three dud's in a row. Woodson's replacements struggled today.

    A mega turkey dud for Mason. Hope he gets his head out of his butt.

    What about Jerdroppal Paddlehands? His virus is starting to spread as 84 dropped a perfect pass as well....

    For duds, I would add whoever's decision it is to have Alex Green as the primary runner( McCarthy right?) instead of James Starks.Unless it's been determined that he isn't healthy enough for that duty, it just seems like theres so many times where Green utterly falls short, literally(tripping over people easily).

    Also, that fake/punt/audible/ pass play seemed like it was just a really poor idea. I get a fake, or just going for it outright, but shifting to an apparent passing formation with your punter behind center? I could be wrong, it may have been a good call and just poorly executed by the players, but it certainly looked bad.

    Absolutely. I have given that guy lots of flack. He deservers a lot of credit for the special teams good play. Wonder if that was McCarthy or Slocum who influenced that questionable fake field goal from 38. That was a black mark but still a winning special teams performance.

    Everybody can blame the Packers running backs. Sure Benson was doing nice earlier this year with these same linemen. But still, I just didn't see any holes to run through. Green is a guy who if given enough open holes, will bust one too. When you get hit in the backfield and dropped, that's more of the linemens fault then the runner. I don't know. I'm not saying Green played good today, but I don't think he deserves the bulk of the blame.

    He also has done a good job of holding on to the ball. Something the Jaguars couldn't say when Jennings fumbled in the red zone.

    The only thing that I can figure is that Green must have better ball security and probably the better 3rd down back. Starks looked good in his limited touches out there today. Green will fall sidways or backwards each time a defender hits him on outside runs.

    Starks simply needs more touches. The Alex Green show isn't a winner.

    These guys are the softest run blockers I have ever seen time and time again in the NFL. They never get holes open, and they never get one of them to the second level to block LBs.... LBs always are to the LOS right away.

    Other Duds:
    Crosby (I can't stand this guy anymore.... I want him replaced by next year or before). He's unclutch.
    DJ Williams. Easy big drop. 0-2 Rodgers was throwing to him.
    TE's.... Rodgers was 2-9 throwing to Finley, Crabtree, DJ. That's pitiful.
    Alex Green. I know there were never holes where they are supposed to be, but have the guts to cut back and look for lanes elswhere.... and on 3rd & 1, don't tackle yourself please. That's almost a turnover.
    Starks... another simple easy dropped pass.

    The Pack did get a good 5 yard run at some point in the 2nd half. Of course they had to have a 6th offensive lineman in there to accomplish the feat. :(

    Agree, never saw a guy run into a pile where there is nothing and not try a little east to west running...

    We couldn't run the ball against a team that was surrending 150 yards per game rushing. We definitely need Benson.
    Crosby is a choker!!
    Playcalling and Rodgers. Throwing the ball deep into coverage and two fumbles. WTF
    Allowing 300 yards passing to Blaine Gabbart.

    plusses have already been listed i.e Driver, Cobb, House, and Matthews.

    Studs: Cobb, Matthews

    Duds: The defense looked like last year's last ranked defense, in big part to the pass rush taking a hit with Perry out, not to mention Shields/Woodson.

    WRs having trouble getting open

    I like alex green, but he just isnt an every down back to me. If we can get benson back for the playoffs it will be huge.

    Masthay seemed to be a dud today, he had a bad pass and a bad punt.

    MM probably isn't a happy camper, happy we won but thats it.

    The biggest improvement we can make to this team is a new OL coach. It has been the same for a few years, and you can't argue that there isn't talent there.

    For me its:
    Studs:
    Packers
    Duds:
    Jags

    Our team hung in there, never gave up and found a way to pull off the win.
    The Jags got close but didn't manage to pull it off.

    Through the uprights means between them. Not literally through it.

    If we make the playoffs we will run against. A team who can play defense and get beat because we cannot run the darn ball. If Rodgers has a weaknesss its the fact he doesnt have the luxury of having a guy he can hand the ball off to to either milk the clock, or keep us out of long downs and distances. Hes forced to try and win the game by himself and as good as he is teams have found a way to slow down our offense. Defense hasnt shown they are good enough to take over a game...if we played someone good we loose todays game period.

    I'm not too discouraged after this game. We blew out the Texans a few weeks ago. Yes, they had no Cushing, but let's be fair, we had no Jennings on offense. I think we can make a deep playoff run if we can just get in. Sure, the offense struggled today, but keep in mind, our two best receivers were out and Jacksonville has a defense that can give any offense trouble. I have confidence in our defense when its mostly healthy, which wasn't the case today.

    Studs: Davon House, Brad Jones (after looking like a stick last week, he was much better yesterday).

    Duds:
    Mason Crosby. Get a new kicker, jesus this guy is a choker.
    The OL. Mediocre at pass blocking, awful at run bloking.
    Alex Green. Sorry, he's had 3 chances to prove himself now and whiffed on all 3.
    The Pass Rush. Did Gabbert get pressured at all, especially in the 2nd half?

    I agree...BUT....Driver caught a TD pass before this one, this was not his first. Still, It was a bad A$$ catch. One of the first couple games, DD caught a laser ball from Arod over the middle for about 15-20 yds.
