I know haha .  I'm so conflicted.  How does a team that folds against a historically bad QB in Osweiler keep an offense led by Aaron Rodgers to 13 points?

I knew we would win they show up to play against teams they have no business beating

I know Irsay got ripped to shreds for it, but he wasn't too far wrong in saying we could have had won every game (barring KC now). We're frustratingly inconsistent, that's the true hallmark of the Pagano/Grigson/Luck era. 

At the same time, our wins could have been losses very easily.  In the San Diego game, for example, their WRs were dropping passes all over the place

We got this one and I think we kinda own the Packers lol.

 

I never saw this coming but we started the game hot and they proved me wrong for sure. Now keep the momentum going and don't give up garbage points and win next week.

I'd agree with you on that. So if we're a coin toss team.. 8-8 and the division? Hope we're become lucky tossers for the 3 games post season?

Love the irony of the Aaron Rodgers/Clay Matthews commercial coming on right after that drive :D

I wrote this to a friend here last Monday:

 

"I hope the Colts beat the Packers next week. I think your offense can score on them. Disregard their 2nd rated run defense. I think Gore can run on them. Also, their secondary is hurt; so if Andrew has any time, he should have a good game. Now, your defense has to step up"

 

I was right.

But at the same time we lead (or did) the league in dropped passes. Players have to show up and play.

I didn't expect this, lol.  I thought the Packers were going to score 40+ but the darn D has just really showed up today!

As much as we criticize the coaching we have to give it up to them today. Terrific defensive game plan. Very little plays with linebackers in coverage. Using the safeties on tight ends, keeping pressure on Rodgers, and taking away most of the short passing game.

And they have stepped up, just need to continue for 9 more mins.

The team is responding pretty well to adversity but can our defense hold them from scoring 18 points in the last 10 minutes of the game

I'd also like to add that I know some people who are Packers fans and it would be great for us to beat them, even though I (still) think more losses this season are better for us in the future.

 

It's odd/interesting how the team performs.  Against a team like Green Bay, we play unbelievable football, very few penalties, good defense, etc.  Against a team like Jacksonville, we lose

    • Yeah. The Chiefs' D is a little like fool's gold to me, like the 2013 Broncos' D, protected by the O mostly. When the Broncos' OL faced the Seahawks' DL, everything came crashing down in that SB. I think the Chiefs' OL will have the same rude awakening like the Broncos when they face the 49ers DL, who play the same Cover 3 style as the Seahawks and have quantity and quality in their DL rotation, just like those 2013 Seahawks who were 6 or 7 deep on the DL front that could push the pocket or rush the passer.   However, Mahomes is better than Peyton in improvizing and moving out of the pocket, and hence it will not be a blowout. The 49ers will still win by close to a TD.
    • They don't have much cap room, if you look at it objectively. They probably let go of Teddy Bridgewater and Janoris Jenkins, draft a QB and more secondary players, and sign Clowney and bring back Brees for one last hurrah. 
    • I think some credit has to go to @Scott Pennock for Jordan Love... He was talking about the connection of Ballard to Jordan Love well before last season. I believe he had an article, or two, referencing Ballard, and scouts, being at Utah State games for Jordan. 
    • This has the makings of what could be a great Super Bowl.  Great offense VS great defense.  Lots of top players.  2 teams that haven't been there in awhile.   Of course, if we aren't lucky, 1 team may blow out the other team.   
    • he pretty much hit a home run with that draft class for the most part.
