I'm a Rodgers fan. Regular readers know that. For the most part, I think he played a great game. It's hard to rank on the guy after his performance today. But . . .
You can't throw interceptions when there's a chance to come back in the game. He wasn't overly pressured, I don't think there was miscommunication, he just threw a bad ball. You can't do that. While the Packers shouldn't have been in the position to try and win the game with 1:20 left in the game, fact is, that's the position they were in. Any and all hope died with that interception. It wasn't even an outstanding defensive play. It was a bad throw.
Now, the Packers didn't lose as a result of that interception. They lost because the Panthers scored more points than did the Packers. Scant little pressure on the quarterback. Once again, the slot receiver chewed up the secondary. Mostly . . .
Special teams. For the love of Lombardi, what's the deal with kick return coverage?
Oh well, it was a fun game to watch. The Packers certainly did some things very well. It was great to see Aaron air the ball out so much.
