Things that stand out to me:

Ryan Grant - zero TDs and only 2 receptions for -4 yards

James Jones - longest catch is 9 yards

no one had missed a field goal against us

i don't want to sound like a favre lover, but i think we need to put rodgers in more situations to get rid of the ball quicker. he's had a problem holding onto the ball too long, not that this is HIS problem but based on how the line has played it's A problem. this is the same line as last year and i refuse to believe they have declined to the point of terrible. maybe they weren't that good last year and the experience of Favre allowed him to read d quicker and get rid of the ball. Pass protection wasn't that important last year with the quick drop - slants we ran last year. plus, i "think" (which i shouldn't do too much, trust me) we're WAYYYYYYYYY to safe with play calling. look at the last game, TD to Driver...amazing pass, amazing catch...ill advised throw. but, you gotta do it to win games....

What sticks out?

1) Jennings is a beast!
2) Our running game is pathetic.
3) Very limited production from our TEs.
4) James Jones has been invisible.
5) We're committing too many penalties (and at all the wrong times).
6) We can't stop the run.
7) We can't get off the field by stopping teams on third down.
8 ) Our speedy, mobile QB is getting sacked way too often.

And you can't tell (directly) from the stats, but our playcalling has been very predictable on both sides of the ball. Pass, run, pass, punt. Pass, run, pass, punt.) Rush 4, drop 7. Rush 4 drop 7. Rush 4 drop 7. (repeat until score or turnover).

Rodgers does needs to be a little quicker and need to get better pocket awareness (but that comes with time) but as right now, other than Jennings, Rodgers had looked to be the best offensive player the Packers have.

We have a top 10 offense yet we have allowed the other team to run 129 (25.8 per game) more plays than us. 25 more plays a game that we have to defend.. ball control and lack of running game.

That there is a recipe for losing.

Which leads to stat #2.

2W-3L
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

That basically sums it up for me... I think the biggest problems are

1) We're hurting our self way too much with penalties
2) We can't run if we could we might have a great offense
3) We can't stop the run and the DB while being injury prone have looked very good.

Nick Collins is finally living up to his promise and will be a bigtime safety! He felt the heat from Bigby and Rouse and did something about it.
