3 consecutive red zone drives all ending with very perplexing playcalling does not mean that this offense is any better."

How does a defense that isn't any better, after giving up a 70 yard touchdown pass on the opening drive keep the Packers from the end zone until the fourth quarter?

How does a defense that isn't any better force Green Bay to kick 2 FGs after they were in the red zone?

And in case you missed it, last night's game was only the THIRD time in NFL HISTORY that neither team punted!
Thank you 656, because I was just about to go all CRAZY CAT on some of these guys.

Damn, I expected to walk into a f**kin' early Mardi Gras here -- and what I get is a hospital waiting room.

Ya'll can't even remember how to second line? Really?

I got my machine in straight-up, bat sh*t crazy gear and I haven't even finished all my Kool-Aid, yet. Sumpthin' wrong with summa these folks roun' hea.

Drew Brees has a message for ya'll -- C-H-I-L-L-A-X.

I work with two Packer fans . They never said a word to me. I think they though it was going to be a cake walk.

No cake for The Pack. No cake for the Panthers, either.

GB was the worst ranked defenses against the run, so we should have had no surprise in success, but I held my breath on so many occasions as passes that should have been defended were actually caught; those passes usually wound up in the wrong hands in weeks past. There was very little separation for our receivers, yet again, and the next few weeks feature pass defenses as good if not better than GB's.

That onside kick was comical, and so, so lucky that we recovered.

And further, when are we going to stop giving 10 yards of space to each receiver?

We were very lucky last night. GB was really good, but not lucky.

Wonder if we can get to the point where we can win without a lot of luck.
Seriously WGAF? We won, and as long as we keep winning,I dont G.A.S. how many yards we give up.
