Why we win / Why we lose

It's time to tap the infinite wisdom of our members. Let's hear three reasons why you think we win or lose tonight.

Win -

Sacks, hurries, knockdowns are limited. Protect Brees!

Run the ball down their throats. I mean 120yds or more.

Malcolm Jenkins has an interception.


Lose -

Minus in the turnover category.

3 and out on the first three drives.

Rodgers is allowed to make plays with his feet.

We usually struggle against a 3-4 defense and normally it's because Brees and Payton aren't patient enough to just take what the defense will give. If we take what the defense will give which will likely be short yardage plays and not try to force the ball downfield we will win. Sure we can take an occaisional shot down the field but to win this game we need to run the ball and take the dump off passes not force a throw into double coverage or stand in the pocket too long waiting for a play to develop.

Why we win:

Brees protects the ball
Defense forces GB out of running game
Secondary actually tries to tackle instead of diving trip

Why we lose
Any failure of one of the above
