Detroit won in Lambeau last year for the first time in forever. Rodgers needs to play better to reverse the trend.

Who the hell was covering Marvin Jones? Giving up a 73-yard TD with less than a minute left (didn't see the play) is pretty much inexcusable.

Um... no one. That was why he scored. [wink] Micah Hyde followed him into the endone, but I don't know if that was who was supposed to cover him.

Certainly the DBs were our of sorts after losing two starters plus another starter (Rollings?) for a while. It didn't help to have Matthews and Jones out, which slowed down our pass rush. When you have Josh Hawkings out at one of our starting CB spots and covering their best WR, it shows that we were dipping into our depth pretty hard.

I like how the offense did work the middle a lot more with more slants also. Plus, I think they only targeted Adams twice (which he caught).

Now to get healthy on the very early bye week...

It was hawkins. He stumbled just before the ball arrived and jones was tight on the sidelines and spinning around so im guessing hawkins thought he had stepped out or was about to step out so he hesitated and was easily stiff armed when he realized his mistake.

NFL Blitz has better referees.

Yeah, if you meant the first half, it was Hawkins. I was thinking the one at the end of the game, which was Hyde (from what I could tell).

Reading about the game, it seems that Randall had coverage on Jones for his final touchdown, but fell down and left him wide open.
