Rodgers was able to pick apart the vikings weak secondary.  Aside from Adams, our receiving core sucks.  It was a nice win, but I'm interested to see how we do against a decent defense.

Agreed on all fronts. I do think not having crowds gives the Packers an advantage in road games. Because of A Rod.

Wasn't going to drink some beers until later when I was supposed to meet some people around 3ish to watch football and have some food. 

But the early Detroit lead and my fantasy football team taking an early nose dive i thought fuck it cracking some cold ones now. In Aaron I trust so not too worried but this is a more equipped Detroit in the past imo and won't roll over and die.

Good game.  Good running.  To any drops, but decent WR play for Adam's being limited.

 

We still need better catching out of the TEs.

 

This season actually works out great for the packers, giving their WRs and TEs some cushion to grow before they face better defenses.

 

Everybody in the NFL should keep one thing in mind.  The offenses are not this good, and the defenses are not this bad.  Because of the shortened prep for the season, you are seeing extraordinarily bad defensive play across the league.  

 

This will not last.

First real test next week against the Saints. We're likely in trouble if Clark and Adams can't go. Our run defense is still not good. What would Rodgers' stats be like without all those drops in the first two games? Jones is getting more expensive each game. Don't see how they can afford new contracts for both him and Bahk, especially with the cap probably dropping next year.

M Adams getting pushed all over the field today. Sternberg showing why he can't get on the field when others are healthy. Two wasted third rounders.

But Gary looked good today. Need more of that from him.

Sternberger is showing promise, just making some inexperience drops trying to make a move before hes got the ball secured.  Since he basically didnt play last year, I'm willing to give him some cushion.

 

Tonyan is certainly looking more reliable, but really its game 2.  

 

Gary will be a good player, and I'm not sure why anybody ever doubted that.  The question on Gary is will he be great.  That remains to be seen in a big way.

 

Our LB group is an upgrade.  I feel comfortable saying that this early, yet it's still the weakest part of our d.  

 

Clark being out hurts.  It's easy to forget how good that guy is until hes out.

I think if its him or bahk going, you have to let him go.

 

Makes me absolutely sick,  but if your looking for longterm value, LTs clearly outweigh RBs.

 

Hopefully we can keep them both.  Probably not.

Keep Bahk, I think. Easier to find RBs than great LTs. The track record of RBs paying dividends on their second contracts is... not great.

Packers first time scoring 40+ on their first two games in a season for the first time since  their inaugural of 1919. Beat Marinette and Menomonee back then. My NE WI guys know that rivalry.

 

Don't know if the Packers will allow fans at Lambeau at all this year, if not, it will be the first season in a very long time i haven't been to a game.

Adams looks good to go this week. Could have returned to the game of it was closer.

After the first couple drives I felt like I was watching the old McCarthy offense of a bunch of receivers running around unable to win one on one matchups and Rodgers scrambling around with no one to throw to until he just throws it away. Playing a team with an actual defense makes it much harder to scheme players open.

I don't think we'll see Rick Wagner ever play left tackle again. Hopefully we never see Oren Burks on the field ever again. Is Preston Smith still on the team? Brady was never pressured.
