Does Anyone Else Remember Lovie's FIRST Press Conference?
i just looked for the vid for the better part of 15 mins, and couldnt find it.
the very first thing he said when he got up in front of the media is "our goal is to beat the Packers". Not to win the division, or confernce, or super bowl, but to kick green bay's ass.
i also remember he started off making good on that goal. this was at a time where we needed some miricle win to beat farve. i for one was pretty freaking happy with that.
now it seems were back in the same boat. i think lovie had farve figured out. however rodgers has us figured out. my god.
last night reminded me of cutlers first game with us. it was up in green bay, and he couldnt catch a break to save his life. looked like a rag doll out there.
so in the last 3 years what has changed?
i say not a damn thing!!!
the key to beating cutler is very simple.
1. get pressure on him
2. once he is frusterated he will start forcing throws
3. INTs will follow
4. and finally cutler will beat himself for you
its that simple. brandon marshall matters very little when he cant catch the first ball that comes to him that happens to be a TD we really really need. he matters even less when you dont throw it to him
to be honest if i were lovie once jay gets pissed off i'd pull him. let him calm down, and RUN THE BALL!!!!!! once he calms down put him back in, and RUN THE BALL!!! then lets try some slants, screens, play actions, but first RUN THE FREAKING BALL!!!!
i'm not saying were done, because were not. last night wasnt about losing to the packers it was about HOW we lost to the packers. it should have been a true blow out. the score did not do the game justice.
i really really hope we can look at this game and LEARN from it! and i hope that someone wakes up and realizes that if cutler is pissed off, it doesnt matter what plays you run, or what you tell him, he is going to force the issue and lose the game.
my .02 cents :peepack:
