Man that game was wild. I probably feel pretty good that my team won, but that was such shaky defense, except for the 2 4th and 1 stops. Also, it looks like we still can't get first downs and kill the clock late in games. I think McCarthy needs to be a little more agressive with the lead late in games and secure the win. The same thing happened against Philadelphia, Chicago and Pittsburgh last year. In all of those games we had 14-point leads yet had to rely on interceptions or a defensive stop late to secure the win. Still a win is a win. GO PACK GO

I was surprised that Green Bay gave up that many points. They missed a lot of tackles and the secondary was not impressive. But then as all of the other games unfolded over the weekend it was clear that all defenses were getting torched. I think the rule changes have really vamped up the scoring this year. QBs are going to combine for the most passing yards in history. Drew Brees, Chad Henne, Cam Newton and  Tom Brady all threw for over 400 yards.
