A few thoughts:
Cam Newton looked more and more like a rookie as the game went on.
Excluding the final drive (which occurred in kill-the-clock garbage time anyway), Newton threw for 355 yards and the Panthers rushed for 65. 420 yards total is a pretty impressive number for an offense. Not so impressive for Green Bay’s defense though. Except… after racking up all those yards the Panthers could only manage one touchdown and 3 field goals. So maybe it wasn’t such bad defense after all.
Nick Collins: get well soon.
Tramon Williams, Mike Neal, Frank Zombo, Vic So’oto: you too. Hurry up.
By the way, Vic, how does one pronounce an apostrophe? Is that a glottal stop?
Donald Driver: With 9665 receiving yards, DD finally holds the Packers’ team record for receiving yards. It’ll go well with his team record for receptions (647).
I still wish they’d throw to him more.
Finally, the Packers are 2-0, and it’s a good thing too. We have to keep up with Detroit!
