Sunday night featured two quarterbacks at two very different junctures of their NFL careers. Josh Allen dazzled. Of course, it's all about January with these Buffalo Bills.
Agreed they invite teams to try the old “control the clock” game, against a team that seems to score at will. So far it has worked out well, points scored is the only measure that matters.
I’m more concerned that they lost their offensive mojo in the second half. They looked cocky to me and they really haven’t done anything yet.
Imagine the three 1st round picks, Jerry Jeudy, and Noah Fant in GB, IF the GM would have smartly ripped the band-aid off and traded Mr. Rodgers last April.
Correct, you can only imagine. Sad.
I thought the Packers played pretty well last night. They stuck with the game plan and ran the ball and though they only scored 17 points, they piled up 200 yards against a really good defense. They still can't stop the run even at the end of games, but the defense wasn't horrible. Jaire was really good (not sure why he was primarily on Davis and not Diggs)
The main thing is that the talent gap is obvious. The Bills have arrived and the Packers look like they will get worse before they get better. Rodgers can still make throws, and he is the smartest guy in the room (just ask him), but he just can't move anymore. Josh Allen saved the Bills with his legs a few times last night. Rodgers did once but it was probably his first rush for a 1st down all season.
I'm ready for the era of Love.
I'm not sure the Packers cap situation is that bad if Rodgers is gone. Andrew Brandt wrote a while back that a lot of that contract is only guaranteed if the Packers keep him.
Respectfully, Dap: Offensive game appeared sound? The team failed on two 4th down conversion attempts. It scored 10 points in the first half. Rodgers accrued fewer than 100 yards passing through 3 quarters plus.
Offensive game plan appeared sound. Pack can obviously run the ball and it keeps the other guy off the field. Defensively? What a disaster. Stokes and Savage simply cannot play.
Tight on , the biggest hurdle in front of the Bills, will be the Bills, but that’s the truth for all great teams.
We’ll see if this one makes it.
Respectfully, "the defense wasn't horrible"......? 24 points in the first half and the "defense wasn't horrible"....? Letting Allen get a first down on a scramble at the 1 on 3rd and 12? Hmmmmm.....
Thank you...It's actually about February with Buffalo.
