    I thought the media was saying we didn't have any receivers on this team for Rodgers to throw to.

    All those TD's today without, guess who: Davante Adams.

    wasn't just the media. every fan, everywhere, was saying it...and it will continue to be said until those receivers, and rodgers, prove them wrong.

    We have a lot of young receivers that are coming into form. MVS was one of the good ones, but today especially he had a breakout game. I expect Rodgers will start targeting him even more on some of those deep balls.

    But today also is why I said Kumerow probably has a place as at least a number 4 if nothing else, and Lazard is worth giving looks.

    I mean just think, once Adams gets back, which I suspect will happen against Carolina by the latest, I think we'll really start striking fear into opponents hearts.

    Today was held a clinic. This is the first time I’ve seen Rodgers open a full assault with all his weapons. It reminded me of Brett Favre. He used every player... twice.

    Crazy how many TDs had today. Good for him. It was about time he had a break out game like this.

    Chart only has 4 white dots for incompletes. The grounding from the endzone that wasn't called (in Gruden's non-challenge opinion) isn't there.

    MAYBE IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO TRADE AR12 EVEN-UP TO THE BEARS FOR MITCH TRUBITCHSKI?!?!?!?!?

    Yesterday's game, imperfect though it may have been, was a thing of beauty. I just sat back in my chair, slurped my beer, and watched AR12 shred the Raiders D.

    I think we get D. Savage back and we'll be A-OK.

    Funny. I was going to say the same thing, but I was going to say Raven Green in coverage in the middle and D Savage at Safety erases 50% of our dilemma IMO.

    The Bears are Exhibit A on why you still need a serviceable QB to win even with a good defense. Of course that defense doesn't appear to be the juggernaut everyone thought it was going to be...

    My one concern about getting Adams back is the Aaron will go back to focusing on him and not continue to spread the ball around. I know that Adams is a pro-bowler but it seems to me that if Aaron continues to spread the ball then defenses won't know who to cover, right?

    legit concern. adams is too big a talent not to regain some of that focus though. it's up to MLF, and rodgers, to not let it get out of hand. i can't imagine there haven't been some lessons learned during adams' absence.

    We'll have to wait and see if the Packers use their final designation to return from injured reserve on Greene.

    The Bears defense might not be a juggernaut but they're still pretty good ranking sixth in the league in points allowed.

    While Adams will rightfully remain the top target after returning from injury I fully expect Rodgers to spread the ball around.

    Very quietly, Rodgers has at least entered the discussion for MVP. I think right now, I'd still have Mahomes and Wilson ahead of him, but if he keeps putting up the numbers, he'll be in the discussion until the end. And with the offense just hitting its stride, who knows.

    As of the present, I'd say:

    1. Russell Wilson
    2. Patrick Mahomes
    3. Aaron Rodgers

    Deshaun Watson has to be in there somewhere as well.

    If Rodgers wins the MVP, great, I'll be happy. But I'd much rather have a Super Bowl.

    Side note: I remember when Desmond Howard won the Super Bowl XXXI MVP, and a lot of troll types used it as some sort of condemnation of Favre, as if that proved Favre wasn't that good or whatever. I always thought they could have just as easily given that award to Favre, but whatever. I don't care about the individual stuff so much, it's a team game.

    It always baffles me when there's a conversation about regular season MVP and others always swoop in and discredit the conversation by saying "well I'd much rather have a Super Bowl". We would all prefer to have a Super Bowl. Doesn't mean a conversation cannot be had about something else. The two do not have to be mutually exclusive.

    I don't think he's in the MVP conversation yet. Had one spectacular game last week but was just above par for Chiefs game imo.

    - Was quite lucky in DBs not able to hold on for interception...twice.
    - Admitted in post interview that the amazing TD throw to Williams was lucky break as he threw hoping for Graham to make a leap (the throw was way to high for any kind of leap).
    - Two avoidable sacks, esp the big one in 1Q. Really unnecessary.

    The offence is fluid, but he really needs more support from the Slot WR and TEs. Jones and Williams are making up for it greatly, but the absence is still felt.

    Once Davante is back, then we'll see the true MVP.

    Well at the end of the season, they don't look at "would be" interceptions or "lucky plays". They look at stats, production, value to team, and record. Of which he's looking good in all.

    There's only three quarterbacks in the NFL that are top 10 in yards per attempt, yards per game, passer rating, QBR, and touchdown passes. Mahomes, Wilson, Rodgers. He's in the conversation.

    I agree that Rodgers wasn't perfect against the Chiefs by any means but other quarterbacks make mistakes and get lucky from time to time as well. If the Packers continue to win he will be in the discussion for the MVP award.

    Agree with what you both are saying. I understand the MVP lists are usually skewed towards QBs, but still....for me even I'm still tempted to list Aaron Jones as the most valuable player till date for GB.

    Jones should definitely be considered when talking about the most valuable Packer so far this season. I guarantee the national media will ignore him regarding the league MVP though.
