    Gut Reactions: Week 8

    Aaron Nagler in Gut Reactions
    • How does McCarthy’s team come out, in THIS game, and lay a gigantic egg in the first half?
    • The stage looked too big for Rodgers
    • What the f**k was Dom Capers doing with all the 3 man pressure in the first half?
    • TJ Lang didn’t look as good as I thought he would – but he still looked good
    • The sack where Lang blocked down and let Jared Allen go will mystify me until I die
    • Favre and Longwell, two ex-Packers, played much better than their replacements
    • Johnny Jolly should be cut – just to make a point – but he won’t be
    • Penalties sure mattered tonight
    • The Thompson/McCarthy Watch has begun
    Very astute.

    Especially the comment that the stage looked "too big" for Rodgers. I thought that myself as I watched the game.

    Thoughts? Comments?

    I agree ... - the close ups on Rodgers seemed to show a young player who was very uncomfortable about the situation in general ...

    Can't really blame him ... - I stated earlier before the game, that Rodgers actually had more pressure on him than Favre, going into this game ...

    Rodgers is just a talented young quarterback, who is caught between a rock and a hard spot (so to speak) ...

    Yeah the pressure definitley hit Rodgers in the beginning I'm sure, and it took him a while to settle down. But what the hell is this about Jolly needing to be cut? WHAT?! the man had a outstanding intercepetion, usually creates decent pass rush, AND CAUGHT UP TO PETERSON ON A PLAY to make a tackle!

    GRANT needs to be cut, not Jolly.

    Please tell me you are NOT suggesting Rolly-polly-Jolly is as fast as Purple Jesus? Obviously Peterson was not at even half speed when the tackle was made. Back to reality please.

    Ok, I am not suggesting Jolly is as fast as a half-man-half-machine. I was suggesting that he continued playing once the ball moved past the line, and ended up making a tackle. Wow, it's almost as if i said "he caught up to Peterson and made a tackle". Oh wait, I did.

    Lang I think held up better then what Cliffy did the 1st time..

    Rodgers I think believes he can't be sacked and is shocked when he is

    Didnt Mm say a few weeks ago that he is going to have to start sitting players for stupid mistakes?

    I find this hard to believe after all these sacks this season, I'd like to believe after the first few he'd start to realize he can be sacked.

    Yeah I know...

    but it is just damn frustrating that he is getting sacked when he shouldn't be

    I think when your O-line gets squared around, Rodgers is going to be very good. I take exception with some of the threads here already proclaiming him "great". He might be great someday, but right now, he doesn't have a chance.

    How's that for balanced commentary?

    Yes he did and his excuse is that he did not see it, yet his assistant coach did. As a Packer fan I have always felt the team had good character and behavior like this would not be tolerated.

    I can to a degree(but consequences should follow) understand getting lost in the emotions of the game. Johnny Jolly made no remorse after the game and even boasted,"Thats the way I play." Kind of like Randy Moss saying," I play when I want to play". That attitude has no place on a football team. I stress team not individual agendas.
