Mickey does not accept or cover any bets or wagers. My attorney insisted I say this!
Wow, what a great exhibition of offensive football, and also a lesson on the rules. Rodgers and the Packers are peaking at the perfect time for them; they went through a “tough spot” a few weeks ago, the media began to spin a story about how Aaron and McCarthy were at each other’s throats but then if any of that was true, it has since been dispelled by Green Bay’s performance on the gridiron! Aaron had a stellar night, 25 completions on 40 attempts for 362 yards, 4 TDs and no INTs. But I do see a chink in the green armor and that is the rushing game. The Packers had a total of 75 yards of rushing, Christine Michael had 10 carries for 47 yards and Ty Montgomery touched the ball 11 times for 27 yards so the key to beating Green Bay lies in the pass rush. Fortunately for Green Bay, they have one of the best OLs around. Aaron Rodgers can almost take a nap after the snap and I also agree with the old adage that if you live by the blitz, you die by the blitz so Dallas has their work cut out for them. It’s going to be the second, and last game, next weekend and I’m really looking forward to it. Oh yeah, the rules. Note to offensive players everywhere, cover the ball UNTIL you hear the whistle! A nice turnover for Clay Matthews on the forced fumble by Eli Manning, I don’t recall who the Giant bonehead was but he had the ball at his feet and should have covered it. Since it wasn’t an incomplete pass, NY would have gained a yard or two…
