Gritty Pack­ers ex­cel

Packer Plus - - News -

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.

Go Pack!
