Gritty Packers excel
Watching the Pack at Lambeau beat the Chicago Bears was joyful. Mike McCarthy’s play calling, aggressive defense, and offensive execution stuns the Bears.
What was the mindset of the players and coaches going into this game? How was it maintained even after the rain delay? Whatever the circumstances that lead to this too often rare exhibition of dominant football should be bottled and released once a week through the Super Bowl. Courage and common sense was on display in full with masterful playcalling on offense and defense.
The intensity of the wounded Packer team did not diminish with “the next man up” mentality in full swing. If the Packers can duplicate this effort against the Dallas Cowboys while getting some of the injured puzzle pieces back, then they could be looking at home field through the playoffs.
