Here's what I'm worried about...

Look, I'm not going to start a thread that criticizes how we won, Damn...a win is a win, and I appreciate where we are right now. That being said, I have some areas where I would like to hear your thoughts.

O Line: McNabb was under pressure the entire game, and the running game was non-existent. Is the O Line really as bad as it looked tonight?

D Line: Rodgers had all day...all day. We got to him towards the end of the game, but for the most part he wasn't bothered. What does it take to get pressure on the QB?

Pass Coverage: It seemed like most throws from Rodgers resulted in a 6-10 yard gain. Why are we playing so soft...?

Banks...he better be returning every punt from now on...he can be and will be a game changer...no question. Thoughts?

Re: Here's what I'm worried about...

Well Trent held his own while he was in the game, but towards the end it got bad, and Jammal was getting beat by Clay Matthews when he was in the game. Cullen Jenkins was getting a lot of pressure as well. I would worry about it more if we start seeing consistent pressure on a weekly basis. So far this season they haven't looked as bad as they did today.

And I don't necessarily agree with you about your d-line case. Even when they did get pressure on some occasions Rodgers anticipated it and got the ball out quickly. That's just a matter of Rodgers knowing the blitz is coming and getting rid of it. And we did get sacks, and most of them came at crucial moments. I was starting to believe Orakpo wasn't doing enough to counter getting held constantly, but I was definitely wrong on that one. He can still get better at countering the arm around the neck, probably by going lower and beating that, but he is already very effective at selling the hold and getting pressure. Other guys were getting pressure too, Fletch and Alexander were able to cleanly beat their o-line on that one sack and Jarmon had pressure at the end as well. Guys were getting pressure from my pov.

Pass coverage I don't have an answer for. I assume they do what Haslett calls, and if Hasletts calls for them to give them room in respect for their deep capabilities, then that's what they have to do. Usually when a cornerback is back off the LOS it means they don't want to give up anything deep. Notice how Jennings didn't really get involved? We did give up some underneath-intermediate stuff but we were able to stop them when it mattered.

Everybody agrees about Banks. We just need to be more disciplined on special teams because it will get called back everytime with blocks in the back and obvious penalties on us. Once they become more disciplined we'll truly be able to benefit from his presence. And the secret will eventually get out and teams will stop kicking it to him.

Everyone knows our O line is substandard. Trent Williams is a rookie, and he is the best we got. It is too bad he already has missed playing time due to injuries even by game 5.

Lickinwhateva was getting killed today...missed pick ups, Cullen f*ing him up, we couldnt run up the middle. I find it hard to believe Dock couldnt do a better job.

Re: Here's what I'm worried about...

We all remember last year's disaster of an OL. In one offseason we upgraded our tackles. Maybe next season we'll upgrade the interior and then have a good OL.

Remember, Hicks was pretty much a career backup, but for us is a starter.

Shanahan has always favored smaller more agile lineman. Dock is like a statue.

Re: Here's what I'm worried about...

O-line: was doing terrible in the 1st half, but second half they did about as well as any other o-line has done vs. the Packers

D-line: I thought our D-line was getting some pressure, just because they weren't all sacks doesnt mean we didnt rush rodgers or make him move out of the pocket

Pass Coverage: we're playing so soft so they score only 13 points, same reason we did well against Philly

Kareem Moore's open field tacking is very suspect. He totally whiffed on that 70 yard run by Jackson. Not good at all.

Maybe....they were lucky we had so many O injuries or it would have been a serious ASS-Whippin'?
Portis, TW, Jamal Brown, etc

That play was one of our most embarrassing moments this year. Rocky completely blew his gap responsibility. Oh my god he blew it bad. Then our secondary proceeded to basically escort him down the field for 50 yards. The RB wasn't even fast. Ughh
