1. Offensive Line gives up six sacks, five by Odom…to expound on this, without Greg Jennings, the Packers passing attack was anemic. Ryan Grant, 14 carries for 46 yards and a lost fumble. Grade for O-Line: F
2. Turning Cedric Benson into an All-pro: 29 carries for 141 yards. We need the added depth of B.J. Raji-next week at St. Louis or we will be destroyed by a much better RB than Benson….
3. Here’s our three leading tacklers: Woodson-9, Rouse-7, and N. Collins-5. Notice something? They’re all in our defensive backfield. Where were our LBs? Maybe Dom Capers needs to make some changes…a pathetic performance by a group of LBs that I’d thought was excellent. Grade: F and not to be forgotten…
4. Special Teams…They out-punted and out-kicked us and dare I say, out-coached us. Telling statistic: Punt return yardage:Cincinnati-5 for 114 yards, Green Bay-not a single punt return, that is 114, not so “hidden yards” in their favor. Special Teams:Grade: F
Overall we got what my friend Sherry from Carolina calls “a good ol’ fashioned ass-whoopin’!” This game wasn’t as close as the final score.
Lastly, until we straighten-out our offensive line woes, we’re going to have trouble winning anything. Right now, we stink! What a difference a week makes….
