Why We Shouldn’t Dismiss the Green Bay Packers Just Yet

October 25 [Thu], 2012, 16:25
Three things we abstruse from Anniversary 6 of the NFL:

1. The Pack Is Back. Now we know: As continued as they accept a quarterback such as Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers will abide in the chat for this season’s Super Bowl. Coming off a abashed 2-3 alpha to the year, which included a asperous (and ridiculous) accident in Seattle and a complete accident endure anniversary in Indianapolis, a prime time admirers saw the pre-season favorites animation aback to exhausted the ahead best Houston Texans 42-24.

And the agreement wasn’t just bedfast to the account but Rodgers himself, who threw for six touchdowns (strangely attached Matt Flynn’s almanac set at the end of the 2011 approved season, if Rodgers was rested) and completed 24 of 37 passes for 338 yards. Admittedly, the Texans didn’t advice themselves. Instead of the Packers punting abroad their aboriginal control of the game, Houston lined up offside on fourth down, which gave the brawl aback to Rodgers. Houston, we accept a problem: in the blink of an eye, Rodgers begin Jordy Nelson for the aboriginal of those six TDs and would advance his own band from a 96.9 QB appraisement to 133.8. From there, it was like a highlight reel, as Rodgers tossed eyecatching array to the brand of Nelson, Tom Crabtree and James Jones. A hapless Houston will absolutely point to missing their brilliant linebacker Brian Cushing as able-bodied as committing a host of uncharacteristic, abortive penalties, but it’s bright they weren’t accessible for primetime. Speaking of which, if Rodgers was asked post-match by NBC’s Michelle Tafoya, “What do you anticipate you told the critics tonight?” his acknowledgment was abbreviate and sweet. “Shhhhhh.”
