Quick Slants: Preseason Week 3

Posted on

The Packers preseason game against the Niners started very late for this East Coast blogger.

The opening drive was like an overflowing hamper. Too much laundry and it stunk.

Aaron Rodgers’ escapability was on fleek. I think. I’m not sure. Is fleek good?

The first quarter was reminiscent of the Chip Kelly Eagles kicking the crap out of the Packers in the preseason and then being absolutely pedestrian in the regular season. The rest of the game the Packers dominated time of possession and much of the other elements of the game. Considering this the score was remarkably close.

It took Lacy some time to get rolling but once he did he looked great, again.

Peppers looked ugly on two different run plays in the first quarter but then again, Peppers isn’t known for superior effort in the preseason. It shouldn’t be too much to worry about.

Randall Cobb looks very good. He’s going to look even better when he’s across from Jordy again.

Jared Cook looks like he forgot how to drop the ball. This is good. His presence in the middle of the field is going to make a huge difference.

With a sigh of relief from Packers fans, Joe Callahan came on in the second quarter.

Not a great punting night from Mortell on what might have been his most important audition night, but a high snap didn’t do him too many favors.

Jason Spriggs didn’t have a club on his hand in the first half. He did in the second.

Callahan doesn’t always look great but he has an arm and he can throw on the move.

Lerentee McCray showed up in the second half. He’s had some flashes.

Chip Kelly looks like Bob’s Big Boy’s Uncle.

Spriggs, Crockett, Banjo, Elliot. Too many damn injuries.

It was fun watching a game where the Packers go for it on fourth down every opportunity they had.

Week three of the preseason is in the books and that means one week closer to actual football that matters.
