Steve Spagnuolo Breaks Down Packers Game, Looks Ahead to Chargers
 
1 Attachment(s)
Opening Statement: “Tough place to play in Green Bay at Lambeau Field. I almost think if you win that game it should count as two wins. I know you have visited with Aaron (Kromer) already today and he talked a little about that. Having said that, I am disappointed that defensively we weren’t able to limit them to one less touchdown. That’s really the way I wrap it up. The one that sticks out is the second quarter drive where it began on the minus eight yard line and we did have them stopped but they had the fake punt and got it back. Then we had two penalties after that that kept the ball going for them - a face mask and a holding. Anytime you give a good football team extra yards with penalties that hurts.

“We did create the two turnovers that helped our football team. I thought we played much better in the second half by holding them to seven points which I thought was important. Overall, we did limit the big play. I think they had two passes of exactly 20 yards and a run play for 10 yards. We define the big plays as more than 10 yards on a run and more than 20 yards on a pass. I thought we did well there.

“Where I didn’t think we performed well defensively was in the redzone and disappointed in that because the prior week against Kansas City that kept us in the game. We played really well in the red zone then so we went backwards that way. We did not create enough third downs, the penalties hurt us and we didn’t affect the quarterback hardly at all, certainly not enough to win the game.

“Patrick Robinson had a great play on the interception and I think Brodrick Bunkley did a terrific job on the fumble. He knocked the lineman back that made Graham Harrell stumble and cause a turnover.”

Were you expecting Green Bay to throw in the situation where they picked up their last first down of the game to run out the clock?

“We did. We played man and that’s a challenge for those corners out there. Jabari (Greer) did the best he could. That was another one, I don’t know how he caught that one either. They’ve got some good players, they are going to make some good plays. We challenged them on that down, we were right in the face of all of those wide receivers and he stuck one in there.”



I remember thinking the same thing when the play happened. I was like "damn"..how the @$%^ did he even catch that. I know it looked like Greer didn't have a clue what was happening and he probably didn't because I don't think with the coverage he had on the receiver, they would ever throw it to him.

Interesting to read that he had Roman Harper playing the Will LB in the nickel

Is Martez Wilson not the only person who will be moving positions? Prob just situational but fun to imagine

In all honesty I enjoyed the game. We didn't get blown out like most folks said. The offense was better and TBH this I can see mild improvment in the defense.
This was the Packer offense we're talking about. Try and remember that

The second half was quite exciting. I certainly jumped up out my seat a bunch of times.

Yes and the Chargers are looking ahead to the Saints to for an automatic W like the old days when treams played the Saints.
I am still, will be a Saints fan.
I just want them to pull it together.
Stop this .,
This current team is so much better than they have been playing so, they need to just get it together.
