Packers piling it on the Lions

The Packers running game still isn’t in evidence, but it isn’t hurting the offense one bit.

Aaron Rodgers fired his third touchdown pass of the first half to Greg Jennings in the second quarter at Lambeau Field to put the Pack ahead 21-7 with more than half a quarter to play before the break. The touchdown was set up by a long completion to Donald Driver on the previous play that came about thanks to a busted coverage in the Lions secondary.

Rodgers’ first touchdown of the day went to Driver and number two was to Jermichael Finley. Rodgers is 8-of-9 for 131 yards overall. 

Shaun Hill has put up some big numbers through the air himself. He’s 18-of-22 for 193 yards and a touchdown, but he’s thrown a pick and Jahvid Best lost a fumble to help dig a deep hole for the visitors.

    Yeah, against the LIONS. One of worst secondaries in the league. Plus one of their TD’s was because of a turnover. Packers are not impressive today. Partly cuz they suck.

    Not sure about that piling on bit. Looks like Detroit brought their game today–and with their 2nd string QB.
    ManBearPig–you know the Bears beat em because of a fluke call, right? Easy dude, it’s just week 4. That being said Chicago & Detroit made some great offeason moves and are definititely improved.

    Hill might not be great, but the 49ers sure could use him. He’s head and shoulders above Alex Smith, who’s on his way to getting his 2nd coaching staff fired in San Francisco.
    I never understood why Hill was so quickly discarded and then traded away when he won games for the 49ers and clearly outplayed Smith whenever given the opportunity. Guess it’s just politics as usual in the NFL.

    Kind of like the “fluke” non call on that mugging by Woodson that went unnoticed to stop Detroit’s last drive. Lions get hosed again.

    Yeah, they really “piled it on”, winning by 2 points? Give me a break. The Packers played one team with a winning record this season and they got their asses beat.
    They beat the 0-3 Lions, Kevin Kolb’s 1st start, and Trent Edwards in his last game as an NFL starter. yeah the packers sure look like world beaters …

    Lions beat themselves today. They had more yards but too many penalties so from what I saw on Monday technically the Lions were supposed to win!

    Lions beat themselves, Packers couldn’t beat them without PI penalties not being called
