If we can't count on people to pick up their INDIVIDUAL assignments, than we are doomed. Empty backfield had NOTHING to do with that play....it gives us number advantages elsewhere. Starks MUST do his job...

That RB Ben sent out into a WR position really could have been used there. Empty set = fail.

JUst because Starks got beat doesn't mean the empty backfield isn't stupid. If Miller or Moore are there, they can give Ben a chance when one of the linemen gets beat. Like someone said, its a numbers game. 6 can block 5 better than 5 can block 5.

Wrong....IF they send one more than you can block (and GB DID NOT), then you adjust to the the hot read.

In this case, Starks missed his assignment. That's it. He missed his block, and it blew up the play.

Probably 8. Ben scrambled on one... which was a pass play.


That's correct....and whiney needs to learn to read, since I already posted it was 13-9.

By the way, Green Bay has won 5 straight. They are a REALLY good football team. They have good players. They are solid on both sides of the ball. They are well-coached.

And WE ARE WINNING WITH THE BALL!

This is why we aren't good this year. Missed tackles by guys who used to make every tackle, dropped passes by people who never drop passes. Whether it's karma or concentration, those things add up during games and it is why we have lost five straight

I'm no longer confident enough in our defense that we can pull this out.

BUT, if we lose this game AND our offense continues to play this well, it will definitely shift the onus onto the defense.

I'm starting to feel good about this game, though....
