The last 3 really physical teams to play the Green Bay Packers have beaten them. The most recent, the San Francisco 49ers, beat them in the trenches on both sides of the ball. At one point, the Packers offensive line was so bad that the 49ers were rushing only 3 linemen and still were able to chase Rodgers out of the pocket and make him run for his quarterbacking life.
While the offense sputtered, the defense really didn’t fare much better. In the first half the re-mastered Packers D look decent, almost above average, but in the second half, Dom Capers bunch forgot how to tackle and who was covering who.
For as much as fans like to point their wagging finger at Jarrett Bush for being inept, it was Morgan Burnette that seems to draw the ineptness innuendo.
The bottom line is this, didn’t Mike McCarthy and Dom Capers say that they’d “clean this up” a while ago. One reminder, it is somewhat early, let’s see how this Thursday goes before we jump off the bridge.
As far as the Badgers go, I’ll take a page from the Brett Bielema, post-game press conference play book and not say anything…..I’m holding back such a large amount of emotional disgust that I’m afraid I’ll offend way too many people…..then again, didn’t the Badgers already do that!
