Packers Question of the day - Takeaways from the win

The Packers are moving on to their second NFC Championship game in seven seasons. They're four quarters away from representing the NFC in Super Bowl 51 after consecutive seasons of postseason heartbreak.

While Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott - the rookie duo sensation - had their way with the Packers' defense, it came down to whoever had the football in the waning moments of the game. That just so happened to be Green Bay.

What were your final takeaways from the playoff win?

Hell of a game...

Still wishing it wouldn't have came down to a 51 yard FG attempt to win the game. Winning a game with no time left, is so freaking exciting.

The play that saved the game for them was the sack on Rodgers. The fact that Rodgers didn't fumble that ball, was huge.
Then the play of the game, The Rodgers throw to Cook. Put it in a spot where only Cook could catch it. What a hell of a catch and throw!
And then to find out this morning that the play was drawn up by Rodgers in the huddle. Only adds to how great that play was.

Definitely going to enjoy this game!

Takeaways: Aaron Rodgers is in one of those stretches where he is playing QB as well as or better than any QB has ever played the position. Crosby is totally clutch. Our OL is as good as any in the league. Monty gains tough yards and while he is not a 100 yard rusher his runs make a difference and keep the defense honest. Jared Cook has become a major factor for the Packers offense. Our defense plays solidly but we still need a better pash rush (this means you CM3 and Peppers). Our secondary, especially the CBs scare me to death. Hyde played brilliantly but we need Burnett to get healthy for the Atlanta game. Except for Michael, our STs played well for the second week in a row. Schum has been much better in the playoffs than he was during the regular season. On to Atlanta. Go Pack Go. Thanks, Since '61

* Thank you, 61 for mentioning Schum (who has not been on my most favored list in the past). He punted us out of trouble and needs to be recognized.
* I agree Hyde and Burnett, but also feel Brice deserves some credit. He filled a very important role for the Pack in a desperate situation. Hope Burnett returns, strong!
* Where would we be without this O-line and individuals like Bakht toughing it out?

Good summary '61. O-line has been the best unit on the team for the entire year. Kudo's for Bakh and Bulaga for finishing out the game even though they were hurting. They are a big component in Arods stellar play.

And your point about the pass rush is well taken. If the secondary can't cover then the Pack have to get a decent pass rush to mitigate the damage. I will say Perry was breaking through quite often. Even with one hand he's outplayed the other two stars.

I posted below, but I will say this here again. I truly, and honestly believe the officiating cost us 6-10 points between the two horribly blatant holding/PI calls on Davante that killed drives, and Clay, for all his pass rush he needs to have, he tends to make plays late, and I think he was going to make a HUGE sack or pressure/hit on Dak on the Cowboys last TD drive, where he got ENVELOPED by the tackle and ended with his back towards Dak... no holding call.

Kentrell Brice is going to be a good safety, especially if he listens to the coaches and keeps learning, but he's no Burnett (yet), and we need Burnett back to situationally be able to play in that hybrid safety/ILB role inside the box when necessary.

Well I'll tell you this, if he wins another Super Bowl I'm going to call him on par with Bart Starr as the greatest Packer QB ever. I count that Seattle loss as two Super Bowl appearances so far, but only one win. I wish I could know why he was playing so poorly in that 4-5 game stretch of the season where he was missing open receivers and throwing poorly because this turn around is remarkable.

I found it very interesting that last week, MM said that he saw AR wasn't connecting long so he went to some simple shorter plays to get him back in sync.

So I give MM credit for finally learning how to manage his QB. The 4 game losing streak means we don't have home field advantage so it is not a moot point. And I think there was still some of that going long when he had someone shorter during the 2nd half. So the thrill of the last throw not withstanding, take what the D gives you. When Dallas dialed up the pressure in the 2nd half, we needed to make those short throws and move the chains more than we did.

Just remember Atlanta is also playing much better too. Top ranked offense in the NFL, leader in points per game at 33.8, and second in yards at 415.8 - AVERAGE. Not only are they 2nd in passing yards, but they are 5th in rushing. This is a major challenge for GB's awful secondary. Good news is, they aren't anything special on defense, 27th in points allowed, (Pack is 21st) 25th in yards allowed. (GB is 22nd) Atlanta gives up 266.7 pass yards/game, GB 269.3; 2nd and 5th in the league.

This is going to be a major league shootout folks. Last team with the ball wins, didn't work out that way last October though.

For all the blown playoff games the past few years, this one just about ended up the same way. But it didn't.

Surreal is the best word to describe this one. Gonna take a while for it to sink in. I mean wow, like two heavyweights just going toe to toe throwing haymakers.

Considering the injuries on D, parts were better than expected, toward the end, as expected. AR didn't have his best game, made some reaaly bad throws. But once again, made THE throw when needed most.

We survived one tough football game. We will need to do better to survive next week"s game though. ATL is on fire and at home. AR needs to re-focus and the D needs to cover and tackle better. But for today, WOW, UNREAL.

It seems like the Packer strategy has been to keep the offense productive and try to continuously develop young defensive players. I wish they had kept Casey Heyward. Unless they hit big with young players on their rookie contracts, like they did in 2010, they will never have a dominating defense. I hope they keep Perry as he is one that they developed. I don't want to see him lead the league in sacks for some other team next year like Heyward led the league in interceptions this year.

Another play not talked about much was Perry's pass block that caused two things: 1) It forced the FG by Dallas; 2) It stopped the clock, enabling that last drive/pass by the Pack.

That's an excellent point considering Crosby was 0-4 of game tying or go ahead kicks in the 4th quarter or OT. I didn't understand the 3rd down play before that (Going deep to Adams) instead of maybe trying for a 1st down or at least a few additional yards.

Atlanta likes to chip at the edges with their RB. Neither Freeman nor Coleman are power guys. They string things out and let them get to the edge and use their speed/elusiveness. I think DPF likened Montgomery to Coleman...I think that's a good comparison.

In the 2nd half, the Cowboys went more to a man-to-man on those receivers. IF Jordy is back, that will be a lot more difficult for the Falcons. The Cowboys had everyone healthy, in Atlanta they won't have their #1 CB and pass rusher. The Falcons also don't have the Oline that Dallas has so I don't expect a runaway by the Falcons.
I live in the DFW area and follow the Cowboys. They have one area that is a weakness and that is their HC. He's really an extension for Jerry Jones and while the team does good things.....he's not always making the changes he should.
I hope Jordy and Burnett are ready to go next week, but how do ribs heal in a week?

When Rodgers threw that pick the entire game changed. Instead of an early Dagger, it gave the Cowboys momentum. With that said the Defense held the Cowboys to a FG when they absolutely had to.

Thought MM called an excellent game though I thought he'd run more, especially in the 2nd half and I thought he'd give Michael a try. Maybe Michael was in the "Doghouse" but he was still returning kicks after the miscue in the KO return.

Monty was big in this game. He ran the ball well and was excellent when he was thrown to, especially that pass and run on the final drive.

Please give Burnett's quad some what they gave Rodgers for his hammy and calf. One week he's limping, the next he's A-Rod. Atlanta has better receivers, 2 running backs, and a few TE's they use ALL the time. We'll need Burnett.

GLAD to see Adams back out on the field though I don't know what that means. I didn't see him involved after injury and the Packers HAVE to have Adams, even if Nelson is somehow able to return next week.

For the most part I liked McCarthy's game plan and play calling.
The only play that I absolutely hated was the 2nd down play with 2 minutes left in the game. When he decided to bring in extra OL, and TE's and ran it with Montgomery, which he lost a lot of yards. I am fine running it, but run it with WR's to spread the defense out. That put them in a hart to manage 3rd down, and they ended up settling for a 56 yard FG attempt. That 2nd down play call, was IMO the worst play call of the game.

I appreciate the comments on Adams, especially. Cobb was very important in the first half, but I do not recall any plays in the 2nd half? Am I right? I would be interested in any comments/corrections, as well as what the coverage was on Cobb, especially after the Adams injury.

Also, that screen pass to Monty had a lot of room if we do not miss the block. Give Dallas credit there.

Note: ESPN just announced that the Packer receivers have only two drops the last two games. Very important point!

Secondary suffered a bit when Burnett went out, Kentrell Brice is a fantastic talent, and I think his future is bright, but he cannot cover as well as Burnett in man to man, nor play in the box like a hybrid ILB like Burnett can, and I believe the cowboys took advantage of that. Really want Burnett back for Atlanta.

Offense played really well, a few injuries on the line, even temporary, hurt us a few drives.

The biggest thing that happened, in my eyes, was the horrible officiating against Davante who got mugged twice and those two plays really did kill those two drives, which I firmly believe, even if ONE is a touchdown, which I think was going to happen, or 2 field goals, the game is "put away"

Also, on the Dallas Cowboys last touchdown drive, Clay Matthews was -mugged-, bearhugged, and was "rushing Dak" with his back to dak because he was wrapped up and turned around... NO holding flags, at all.

I think this game was -not- as close as the final score appeared, I think a lot of poor officiating made it a 3 point game opposed to a 10 point game.

SUMMARY:

* Want Burnett back, Brice is a great backup, great future, but not a Burnett, not yet.

* Between no holding call on Clay getting mugged on final Cowboys TD drive, as well as the two -blatant- holding calls or pass interference vs Davante Adams, I firmly believe THE OFFICIATING COST THE PACKERS 7-10 NET POINTS THROUGHOUT THE GAME... better game than score shows.

You said that we would lose to the Lions because Stafford was better than Rodgers and you were wrong. Rodgers killed them.
You said that we would lose to the Giants because Manning and his WRs could not be stopped and you were wrong again. Rodgers annihilated them.
You said that we would lose to Dallas because the Packers could not beat physical teams and Rodgers cut them to pieces and you were wrong again.
You have had 4 strikes and you are way beyond OUT!!!. You have no idea what you are watching or any understanding about how good of a player Rodgers is. As long as he plays we have an advantage because he is not only the best player on the field he is the best player in the league. It's time for you to shut up and disappear. Your Bears stink and you can't deal with it. Try growing up instead of laying your futile frustrations on the Packers. And BTW the defense has been exposed and we still won. You know why? I'll give you a free one. Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Rodgers. Got it yet? Probably not. Goodbye.

Please explain how trading Rodgers would win the Super Bowl for Green Bay, I'm dying to hear your logic. I get it, no guarantee they win it even with him but zero chance without him.

Because dealing an elite player at the most important position -- when you don't have an obvious replacement -- for more picks in the draft (lottery) automatically makes you better?

This week was about beating Dallas which you said emphatically that we had no chance. You hoped that we would not get blown out. Well, we blew them out for the first 3 quarters.
You said there was this big gap in talent and the Packers could not match up against Dallas' talent.
Well, we all saw the talent gap and the Packers offense had so much talent versus the Dallas defense that it looked like
Rodgers and our receivers were practicing out there, especially on our 4 TD drives.
Dallas with all of their alleged talent had trouble moving the ball against our defense playing without 3 starting DBs until the 4Q. So much for your talent evaluations.
Why am I wasting my time anyway!? No sense blogging with a circular loop is there.

Here is what I take away:
1) A win like this can propel a team anywhere.
2) I know ATL creamed SEA. But SEA struggled against the Rams and niners late in the year. They're not that good. In fact, their whole division was weak. False confidence for ATL.
3) Dallas was as healthy a team as you can find. We had a chance to blow the doors off.
4) Dallas Oline is the best in the league. We're not the only team to not generate pressure against them. I foresee a better pass rush against ATL.
5) More than other guys healthy....I root for Perry to get that club off. He's been a playoff beast.
6) I feel like we will be what the Giants were to us in the past..as we will be to ATL. Rodgers and turf go together well.
Enjoy this one everyone!!
