Week 4

Recommended Posts

The Eagles are absolute fools if they don't keep feeding Jordan Howard and sprinkling in Miles Sanders. It doesn't matter how high Carson Wentz's ceiling is--every quarterback that's ever existed needs a running game.

Green Bay needs to get their running game going. Three straight weeks of Jones being neutralized is eventually going to catch up to the offense.

The Eagles pretty much need to either trade for another corner, or hope they can get healthy in the secondary, stay healthy, and improve as the season goes along.

Green Bay's secondary is fucking awesome and underrated, but if they can't stop the run, it won't matter.

Last night's game was so frustrating with some boneheaded playcalling and shitty execution. Once Bulaga went down, the o-line could not block at all for Jones but have to at least give him a shot to punch it in from the 1 instead of throwing to Graham's corpse multiple times. Especially considering that Tae was out for those goalline attempts, made no sense trying to throw it everytime. LaFleur's inexperience definitely started showing last night as he was severely outcoached.

Mentioned it earlier but losing Bulaga really hurt and even though Rodgers was able to do Rodgers things, could definitely see the effect of having Light out there instead of Bulaga. Hopefully it's nothing too serious and he can be back for Dallas. Although if Davante has to miss significant time, this offense may be dead in the water. Without Adams, they are in some serious trouble as neither GMo or MVS can be a #1, even being a #2 is questionable. Gute may need to make some calls and see who is available.

As for the defense, pass defense is great and has enormous potential but damn does the run D suck. Games like last night make me more comfortable moving on from Martinez in the offseason unless he wants to stay for cheap-ish. He was repeatedly abused and the Eagles took advantage of him all game. He jumped inside gaps leaving gaping holes for Howard/Sanders, could not cover at all, and didn't stick his guy ever. Every single one of his 14 tackles featured Howard and co carrying Martinez for an extra 2+ yards. Need an offball LB that can cover and stick a guy.

Still plenty of season left to play but LaFleur and Pettine have their work cut out for them if the Packers want a shot this year.

In general, the league has no idea what it is doing with PI and should just drop this new rule. If a challenge like the obvious DPI vs MVS isn't going to be overturned, then what's the point of reviewing for PI? It's like they made this rule for no reason as they don't want to acknowledge they fucked up on the play. Both challenges last night were clear DPI and neither were reversed so the rule is useless.

Finally, Thursday night games are bullshit and I'm hoping either the PA pushes to eliminate them or at least they have to line up with a bye in the next CBA. Players don't get a chance to recover in 4 days and that was evident by the players that were inactive/questionable as well as the ones that left the game.

Eagles did exactly what I said they should. PLay that short passing game... run the ball. They very effectively neutralized one of the leagues best pass rushes and it isn't because they were more talented. They just played and planned better. Pettine the Packers D need to be adjusting better in games but also for the forseeable future. Idk why any offense would play us any other way right now. And with Dallas and Kansas City coming up, those Ls could rack up fast.

Packers giving up on the run was stupid too. Eagles D was playing the run really well, and those stupid horizontal runs weren't working... But you have to keep the defense honest. You have to gash it up the middle a few times. The lack of faith in Aaron Jones, even after McCarthy, is disturbing. We may need to let him go just so the organization can have a RB that they don't just shit on every week.

Rodgers needs to do a better job of getting this WRs to come along. All he wants to do is force feed Davante (who is amazing, for sure). Jimmy Graham dropped like 4 passes last night... Why do we say every week that we need to get him more involved? There was also very obvious DPI on the final play of the game. Within the final minutes and with other PI reviewable already I say you look at that again too. The ball bounces right off MVS chest.. Why does it hit him in the chest? Oh.. because he was wrapped up and literally couldn't catch the ball.

As annoying as those plays as, it didn't cost us the game. We need to play better. Period. Adjustments is something McCarthy could never do in Green Bay... I sure hope Matt can.
