Aaron Nagler of Cheesehead TV, who you can hear daily on iHeartMedia-Wisconsin stations, offers his instant takes on the Packers' 34-24 win over the Cowboys on Sunday.
Offensively, things looked better than expected with Davante Adams out...
- Aaron freaking Jones baby.
- That Bob Tonyan catch was insane.
- Marcedes Lewis tight end screen for the win
- Kumerow came so close to being Touchdown Jesus
- That's a hell of a game from Lucas Patrick at center in place of Linsley
Per the norm, the defense showed some swagger...
- Za'Darius Smith doing the Ray Lewis dance after Lewis called out the Packers defense was everything
- Hell of a bounceback from Will Redmon. Great game.
- Speaking of young DBs....Chandon Sullivan!
- That was an incredible effort from Kevin King all game long. Capped off by his INT.
- Preston Smith bullied the Cowboys all day
Observing the game, a few things stood out...
- The Packers coaching staff did a GREAT job taking advantage of what the Cowboys put on film this year
- Being live during the game reminds me how fatalistic some Packers [fans] are
- I need a smoke after that game and I don't even smoke.
- That rouging call on Gary followed by Kenny Clark getting hit by a blindside block and not getting flagged is peak NFL
There's always room for improvement...
- Jaire had a tough start to this game, despite the pick. Just needs to settle down early. Brutal play on the TD he gave up late though,
- Can we stop letting Mason Crosby make tackles please?
- The crazy thing on the TD over Tramon is that if the QB doesn't get hit, it's probably not a TD
- Not feeling the play fakes out of the shotgun.
- Lots of work to do, but I absolutely love this team.
