Game Ball Packers vs. Lions

Game Ball is designed to say something positive even in a loss.

My game ball goes to Devante Adams with 9 catches for 140 yards.

Maybe MVS for his first career TD(I think), or Arod for a 400+ yard game?

Young receivers didn't look to bad, got some experience. All in all the defense played decent. We just started too slow again.

Difficult call. Lots of good stats for several players, but not enough points on the scoreboard. The Packers do understand that the "Red Zone" doesn't mean "STOP", don't they? Game ball to MVS sounds good to me, maybe splitting it with Adams.

I thought the O-line did a nice job giving Rodgers ample time to pass.
It's interesting...on the play where Hand caused AR to fumble, a roughing the passer penalty does not result if the ball is fumbled out before the defensive player lands with complete weight on the QB.  However, when a QB throws a pass (whether caught or not) and the defensive player lands with full  weight on the QB, then a penalty is called.

Maybe we the Packers should start referring to it as the Green Zone.

I'll go split with Adams and MVS.

If MVS continues an upward trajectory, it gives me hope that next year they can move on from Cobb (please, please, please)..........stick Allison in the slot.............and MVS plays at the #2 WR.

Also, saw some signs of life from ESB.

How about Kevin King, he made it all the way to the middle of the 4th quarter before exiting with an injury. :D

That is sarcasm if anyone didn't get it!

Some coach actually tried that a few years ago, and was laughed at by everyone. Perhaps the "Go Zone"? Wait, then it would sound like a Go-Go club from the '60's. Never mind.
