Packers Make Us Say Enough!
Enough of this, enough of that
In my business, it's not good to say I'm out of words to describe the futility of the Packers improving things and turning over a new leaf. So I'll keep my thoughts about the game against the Bucs to a minimum....just the way you'd like the memories of this game to be.
6 sacks? Enough already. Drafting more project linemen? Enough already. Not developing young linemen, other than Josh Sitton and maybe T.J.Lang? Yeah, I've seen enough of that too. Time for Ted Thompson or whomever is GM of this team next year to sign a solid free agent or two to protect Aaron Rodgers and not get him killed. I'm not talking Pro Bowlers or All-Pros. I'm just talking good, solid, competent run and pass blockers.
Sure, the penalties were down...but again, enough of the key mistakes at the worst possible times. That hold on Daryn Colledge when the Packers had a shot down 3? A sign of desperation since the line was getting manhandled at that point.
I asked Aaron Rodgers in an exclusive one-on-one interview if he needed to make quicker decisions. He told me he thinks he's made good decisions this year. I also asked him if he's concerned that there's a growing perception that he hasn't won a "big game." He said he doesn't listen to that stuff. Even though he's had a good year, he has a chance to finally make a statement that he's more than a QB who puts up nice fantasy stats when the NFC East leading Cowboys come to town. Just ask Burlington's Tony Romo....he's shutting up the critics by just leading his team, to gritty, solid wins.
Aaron Kampman in coverage? Enough! The guy is too classy to come out and say it...so I'll say it for him. ENOUGH! Let him do what he does best, which is put his hand down and rush the passer...and let somebody else worry about covering TE's and backs out of the backfield.
And multiple special teams breakdowns? Enough! Some of that is scheme, and some is effort. At the midway point, if you're thinking playoffs with this many deficiencies? ENOUGH!
