Finally, the defense with something to hang their hat on today. Good to see.

Ingold can’t convert on the FB assist.

500 yards mean nothing if the scoreboard still says 17...

Kevin King is not good.

Vintage Packers defense. Bend, bend, bend but don't break.

"You're not going to have him when you want him and you're going to run out of games. He can't pitch 90 games. It's just not going to work. If anyone thinks it's going to work, show me how."- Craig Counsell on Josh Hader.

Great to see the offense come alive in a vintage effort today. Rodgers was spectacular. Defense gave up a lot of yards, but were in a prevent mentality for a lot of the game. Raiders have a solid offense as well.

Very big game that should hopefully put a lot of questions to rest, at least for now.

The question of the rest of the season becomes: can Kansas City, Minnesota, San Francisco, Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans—or, even New England—break the Gumby defense? Will that unit torpedo another playoff run, and be one more chapter in a long, tragic book?

What is best in life? To crush the Cardinals, Cubs, and Manny Machado, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their fanboys.

500 yards does mean something regardless of the points. It may not mean anything today, but it isn't a good trend. How someone that follows the Packers can be comfortable with that is amazing. I'm not specifically talking about today's game, because I frankly am not that worried about it at this point. But I've seen plenty of Packers teams that give up massive yardage only to hear it's OK because they won. That is basically how the Packers lost in the playoffs most of 2009-now. They were a good team that gave up astronomical yards and points in playoff losses.

Carr is good. He is having a good year on an average team. Rodgers looked great, Packers offense is rolling. But their defense looked really bad today, it happens. They're winning in October and will be back in the playoffs - that alone is great. They have time to work on being perfect. But to say they were playing prevent just isn't accurate. They were getting absolutely lit up the entire first half.

The secondary hasn't been the same since savage has been out. Hopefully he returns soon and help right the ship.

Great start for the bears today.

Can't believe the Bears sold their soul to get Trubisky.

Yeah, the defense was really bad today. The final score looks a lot more lopsided than the game really was. If Carr hits the pylon before the ball comes out before halftime, this game is probably a shootout. I'd definitely like to see the defense start playing better ball than we've seen since Philly.

That said, the Raiders are a decent team on the upswing and recently beat the Bears, so no shame. The offense is obviously trending back to elite status in a hurry, and that alone gives us Super Bowl hopes.

After the frustration of the last two seasons, I'm going to enjoy this win and this start. No one saw 6-1 coming. This team is defying everyone's expectations. Are there some issues? Yes, there are. But this is a good team on the upswing. As a fan, I'm going to enjoy it. Was the defense concerning today? Yeah. But if that is the biggest takeaway from today's game, I don't understand how you enjoy being a fan of this team.

I don't get this, man. I just said "no shame" and "Raiders are a good team" and "gives us Super Bowl hopes" all in the same paragraph. You think I'm not enjoying the heck out of being a fan of this team right now? Why can I not do that while also acknowledging the things that need to be cleaned up? Why is it necessary for me to bury my head in the sand, lie to myself and pretend that them being "in prevent mentally" was responsible for the defensive performance today if I am not going to have it questioned how I enjoy being a fan of this team?

I do think this is a good team on the upswing. Not saying otherwise.

Pretty much put himself back in the MVP conversation in one game. I'd say he's probably #2 behind Wilson at this second.

I didnt watch the game, i had it on the radio while doing other things. Just have to say that the amount/frequency of replay really not only slowed the game down but just disrupted the flow. Not sure if it did the same for viewing.

Im a proponent of replay, but as others have said, we now have 4k super slow mo with so many camera angles theres just too much to get wrong. Its disrupting the game more than its helping get calls right. My 2c

King has been beaten alot this season.


He isn't that good. He never has been, people have been assuming he'll be good when healthy based on draft status. He's an OK second corner at this point, when healthy, which is almost never. Alexander is the clearly superior player. They've had much worse players back there and he's probably passable if we are getting to the QB, but I think at this point we can say he's an average player.

Another TT blunder. Passed up TJ Watt to trade down for King, who was injury prone coming out of college.


I remember that draft as I was hoping the Packers would take Dalvin Cook, but took Kevin King instead. Jones is a good back, but man would it be fun having that monster paired up with Rodgers in the backfield on Sundays.

My post wasn’t directed at you. I guess it was intended to be more general in nature. I’ve seen quite a bit of consternation following the game all over the place. Hell, Bill Michaels is beating it to death on his postgame show right now. The team just had its best offensive performance in years, and all people seem to want to do is complain about the defense. It’s just a little disheartening, that’s all.
