On a different note...after watching the game again I've come to the conclusion that the team needs to bench Mathews.  Its not even a performance thing with him anymore its effort.  For an aging guy in a contract year his effort is terrible!  Over and over I saw zone stretch plays running away from him where he wasn't blocked and gave no effort at chasing from behind. A number of times he could have been in position to stop plays for little to no gain but gave up soon as it went away from him.

Watching him pass rush is almost painful. He has no explosion off the snap,  and soon as a tackle gets their hands on him he just gives up. He really should be embarrassed.  Unless something changes he is going to have a hard time catching on anywhere next year.

Or matched up against safeties. Then again its all about matchups and what kind of pressure the defensive scheme puts on its backs. Which came first the chicken or the egg. Try to consistantly jam him and the o-coordinator simply motions him.

Williams vs. Breeland.  Besides the age advantage, I thought that Breeland played a little more press/man, not the off coverage that Tramon has to play.  The key to guys like Goodwin is the jam on the line of scrimmage.  Keep him at the LOS without a running start and those kinds of guys lose their speed advantage.  Unless you whiff, then it's 6 if you are in Cover 0.

I'm unsure which is better, and you have to tip your hat to an offensive scheme that finds a way to get Goodwin 1:1 against Williams with safeties pulled the other way.

WE- Not sure Breeland would have held up any better than Williams against Goodwin. A 4.6 guy with less athleticism will have trouble covering a 4.27 guy every day. Like I said Packers missed Alexander.

King's pick.... I thought he always had a hand/arm under the ball.  Furthermore, I thought he had great coverage on that play and should get some kind of credit for running with Goodwin, who has world class speed, and knowing enough to turn his head around while going all out, finding the ball and catching it....WITH NO SAFETY HELP!

It was a great play by a young player who could end up as one of the better ones in the league in a few years.

Few teams will have 3 young corners that can rival King, Alexander and Jackson.

For as frustrating as this team can be...this is a very nice young secondary that they can build around.

As far as the O line not playing well, it makes it a lot harder to play well when the defense can pin their ears back and go after the QB.  I am so sick of Fat Mac and his terrible offense.  His lack of any semblance of a balanced attack is an absolute joke.  I've been a fan since the early 70's when I was able enough to understand football.  I would have been fine seeing them lose last night.   We beat a bottom 5 team, playing with their backup QB, and it took 10 points in the last 2 minutes to do that.  Congrats on a nice win Packers.

That interception at the end of the game blew my mind. I didn't know u could juggle it and have it hit the ground like that. Did they change a rule relating to that?

The Packers will be 3-4-1 at the halfway point of their season.
