Bills-Packers one-liners

The Bills had trouble moving the ball without WR Terrell Owens, resulting in a first-half shutout.

The Bills also had trouble holding onto the ball, with three turnovers in the first 16 minutes and a total of five for the game.

Bills QB Trent Edwards said the offense didn’t work against a 3-4 scout team in practice, which left him surprised by some of the looks offered up by the Packers.

Bills coach Dick Jauron was upset that his team had 12 penalties for 123 yards on Saturday night.

A touchdown catch by Packers TE Jermichael Finley might have exposed the difficulty Bills S Bryan Scott will have covering athletic tight ends.

The Packers’ starting offense and defense combined to turn Saturday night’s game into a laugher from the first moments of the game.

Backup quarterback candidate Brian Brohm’s first five drives were unsuccessful, but he led a touchdown march after re-entering the game following a shoulder injury to Matt Flynn. 

Packers S Nick Collins left the game to have X-rays on his ribs, which were negative.

Said Packers QB Aaron Rodgers following a 8-for-9, 98-yard performance, “I think the key starts up front.  In two games, I haven’t gotten sacked,
really haven’t been touched.  And that really gives you a lot of
confidence as a passer.”

    This game wasn’t even close until the 4th quarter. Though it’s the preseason, the Packers should be encouraged by putting up about 38 points with their starting offense, and allowing 0 points with their starting defense.

    Cleveland and Buffalo are awful teams.
    Green Bay will be VERY solid this season, but I feel they will forever come up short until they legitmately and successfully address the D-line.
    38-31 games are exciting, but I prefer weekly 24-10 drubbings.

    Regarding the last comment, this is why I think Rogers is so over-rated. Its because his line is so under-rated. He went most of the year last year without being touched. The Bears couldn’t even get his jersey dirty. The only time he really got hit all year he got “hurt”.
    Almost any decent NFL QB would make the Packer offense look good right now.

    Remembering this is just preseason with little game planning, there are a few positives coming from Green Bay.
    The score is meaningless. However, the offense/defense could very easily have it “not together”, so the fact that they are clicking is a good early indication.
    Packers should be able to compete pretty well once the season starts. They have some areas which they need to definitely work on.
    If the 3-4 comes together, that should bode well in a division that every other team runs the 4-3.

    So they rolled over the Bills and the Browns, so what. Preseason means squat.

    Someone else mentioned that last year, the Lions went 4-0 in the preseason so there isn’t much you can read into this other than some of GB’s back ups got a lot of playing time and that is a good thing.

    You’re kidding right?. He was sacked a whole lot last year, 7th most in the NFL. And he would have been sacked a LOT more if he weren’t so mobile. Just because the Bears couldn’t touch him with their nonexistent pass-rush doesn’t mean his line was awesome, because last year they were anything but great.

    You can’t watch just one Packer game from last year and make a lucid statement. Yes, in that one game at Lambeau the Packers whooped the Bears in every possible way, including outstanding offensive line play. The line wasn’t nearly as good for most of last season. They have talent, but they are inconsistent.

    Well, overall preseason record doesn’t mean squat, but how your starting units perform against the other team’s starting units does mean something, and the Packers’ starters have been dominate thus far.
    Can’t wait for the game on Friday when this defense can get a chance to play against the potent Cardinal passing attack.

    Fan of Four, please keep your whiny ass on Viking threads. No one gives a rats ass if you can’t get over your man crush on Favre. Anyone with their eyes open can see Rodgers is a better quarterback right now, and the Pack made the right decision. But I guess you have your eyes closed, dreaming of Brett spooning you….

  11. emulcifier says: Aug 23, 2009 2:08 PM

    I think the Bills look pretty bad, but let me all remind you about last years pre-season…
    Bills play the Steelers in Toronto, and the Bills walk right down the field on the first two drives and go up 14-0.
    And we all know how that ended up…

  12. pray4thebills says: Aug 23, 2009 2:35 PM

    The bills were not prepared for the 3-4 defense, not to mention Edwards saw aggressive blitz combination that are atypical in a preseason game. Bills fans should be more worried about the interior line ineffectiveness against the run defense and all the penalties.

  13. The Banker says: Aug 23, 2009 2:43 PM

    When is Dick Dracula either waking up or shipping out. Its becoming more obvious that Edwards hasn’t been right since his concussion. He is not a Franchise quarterback nor an NFL caliber player. Its looking like they pressured Losman and that amplified his mistakes. When TO gets done with Edwards its not going to be pretty. No doubt within three games or three debacles TO is going to cram a football up Jauron and Edward’s butts. After the first mistake Edward’s needs to be benched and one of the backups need a chance. Otherwise, its going to be a long and losing season in Buffalo.

    —————————
    You’re absolutely right. Ted should’ve drafted a D-lineman in the draft. Hell, he should’ve drafted two of them. And one of them should’ve been a high draft pick, possibly first round.. Maybe ninth overall.
    If Thompson had done that, we could say he’s addressed the D-line.

    You must have not seen any of the first two pre-season games from the pack. The d-line is probably the most dominant part of the defense. Johnny Jolly and Cullen Jenkins are beasts out there and Raji was pushing Bills (starting) linemen around like they were children. With the way the Packs starters have been completely destroying competition is making me see that NFC north title on the horizon. I know it’s just preseason but the starters have forced like 6-7 turnovers in two games.

  16. SpartaChris says: Aug 24, 2009 12:44 AM

    I was VERY impressed with Raji. He was destroying his opponents on the other side and doing an excellent job of collapsing the pocket. i’m really hoping his level of play continues to improve. So far our defensive line has exceeded the expectations I had. I know it’s pre-season, but they look like they’re clicking rather well.
    I’m eager to get Barnett and Matthews on the field and see what they can do. So far Bishop and Chillar have looked solid filling in. Bishop I think might have earn a starting role if he plays as solid in the next two games as he did these past two.
    I’m really looking forward to seeing what the Packers do against Arizona, who looked solid on defense and moved the ball very well against San Diego. Week 3 is where you play your starters the most, so it’s going to be a good test to see where we sit against the defending NFC champs.

    I agree, it’s only preseason, but I am seeing a lot of things I like, particularly on defense. The Lions may have been 4-0 last year, but they didn’t have any real dominating play on either side of the ball. The score doesn’t matter, but the level of play does.
    Bishop’s a monster. He has without a doubt earned a starting job. I just hope the coaches have the guts to give him one if Hawk doesn’t step it up. Or maybe we could trade Barnett after he gets back..
    I still have concerns about the kicking game, but I believe Kapinos made himself the frontrunner for the punter spot. I just hope Crosby can step it up.
    Brohm sucks! Maybe we can sign John Booty or someone else in a few weeks, but as it stands now, if Rodgers goes down, our season is toast. Harrell, Jackson, and Moll need to be cut loose already, enough is enough. Jarrett Bush finally at least looked serviceable though. Too bad it was against Buffalo’s third string. Time will tell.
    All in all, things are looking more promising then I expected, and I’m excited. I’m still not sure we’re good enough to win the division, but we should without a doubt give the Bears a good run.
