The NFL is wacky. Winning in Dallas is a bonus win!

Trying to figure how they missed the crack back block Clark, swear they wanted Dallas to win. Good thing they can't control the kicker.

This game was  all Aaron Jones and the OL.  MVS and Allison did very little.  Defense did good, and had some turnovers taken way.  Huge Win for the pack without Rodgers safety blanket Adams.

Should they make a play for Diggs or AB?  Starting to look like they should IMO.

 Good win against a good team. Injuries are piling up and the bye week is a long ways away, need every win we can get. Defense got torched but made plays for the offense to capitalize on. Aaron Jones is a special talent and it was cool to see Jimmy Graham out there making some big key blocks. Still looks like Rodgers and the WR's aren't on the same page a lot of the time, offense needs to hit mid season form fast. A good well rested Lions team coming off a bye week next week, will be another tough game.

 Amari Cooper is a free agent next year, imagine if Gutey pulled that one off.

Diggs isn't going to be traded to the Packers by Minny. Just like the Packers wouldn't trade Favre to them when it would have been the most lucrative thing to do. And AB, though talented, is likely going to be facing immediate suspension if he is signed by a new team. Besides, he's older (31) and a real headache. Would he really be willing to play second WR with Adams?

Now, Cooper is indeed intriguing. Still under his rookie contract, so this would be his first bite at a big contract. Dallas is going to be offering him a lot, having given up a lot to get him. So, before we can give this serious consideration, here is an article breaking down what is likely to happen when Cooper's rookie deal is done. Or when Dallas tries to sign him long term. And remember, they still have to re-sign Prescott.

     Yeah, Gutey spent big this year to build his team, think we're back into the (Keep our own/ draft and develop) mode again for a bit. I wouldn't be surprised to see some smaller moves done before the trade deadline still this year though. Signing Cooper would cost a lot of players down the road, think this team can get where it needs to be in time.

    Diggs would cost too much, and the Vikes wouldnt trade him to GB.  AB doesnt want to play, he just wants to cause problems.  Id be surprised if he dealt for a WR, and if he does I think it would be for a late round pick type thing. I wouldnt hold my breath unless our WRs started dropping like flies.

    I’m absolutely thrilled with 4-1.  Team is giving off a vibe like the last championship team where it’s just good but not great on both sides of the ball, but the big plays just keep going our way.

    Packer WRs today: 4 catches,55 yards, 0 TDs.  If you can do that and win, thats a big accomplishment.

    Thought there was some bad calls today.  The Rashan Gary roughing the passer was a weak call, and Kevin King was all over that WR on his pick.  Glad we got the pick but you cant do that IMO.

    Yea, king was lucky. He really isnt that good. He had that call they missed last week on Jeffrey where he knocked his arm before the ball got there. He made a few.good plays and some lucky flailing defended passe while he was turned around. Hopefully he can get it together.
