Not a lot went right.

Tons of penalties. Lots of big gains given up on defense. Offensive line was terrible.

Put this one behind us. Hopefully Bradford's knee gets better.

The oline did seem sub par today especially with run blocking.

I'm not going to put much of this game on the OL. There were so many drop backs where Keenum just kept going backwards and not stepping up into the pocket so Pitts DEs were just rushing way outside to where our tackles couldn't reach them. That should be easy if we had a QB that would step up into the pocket

The OL was decent considering who they were playing. Keenum panicked too quickly and didn't help his OL out.
When Keenum didn't panic and stepped up on the pocket, he looked ok. The worst part about the game was the stupid penalties. The PIs and dumb offsides were high school level.

I agree. I just think the run blocking could've been a little better. Keenum didn't look at ease when he dropped back to pass in some plays. The penalties, even though I thought some were bad calls, hurt us a lot.

The one on Diggs was bad, but the rest were legit, Imo...

Yeah the penalties were ridiculous. I mean our defense pretty much shut them down the entire second half. I won't blame the refs but some calls were awful. Diggs' PI was a horrendous call. There were a few others.

I mean Bradfords accuracy is so good he would've kept a lot of drives alive. Keenum was spraying it all over. Zim did say in his presser that Bradfords knee is non-surgical which is good news. I would hope to god he starts vs Tampa. I'm flying to Minnesota and would throw up if Keenum has to start again

Last week we won against a bad team, this week we lost a good team. Too many mistakes and the penalties were extended drives. If Sam played today he would probably be out for the season with our Oline. Maybe he will be out for the season anyway with that damn knee. What a bummer.

Hes a great QB, as was Favre. Thats why who they are who they are over the past 20 years. And why we are who we are.

God, I hope not.

If he's out for any length of time, we have no chance of making the playoffs. Case Keenum was nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.

Again, the line isn't at fault when Keenum is taking 15 step drops. New Orleans is an average team. Good offense bad defense. A bad team would be the Jets. The saints aren't the jets. Not even remotely close. Mansquatch did call it tho, when we lose, all hell breaks lose and the season is over. Moving on to next week.....

I'd rather go with the rookie and sign Heineke as a backup.

Doesn't matter how good Rodgers is on the run, when you have both tackles out, you get lit up by Beasley like he just did. Ted Thompson must not know how to draft OL because they have no depth behind those two :whistle: sound familiar? Because that's what Spielman was accused of last season. Either way, I love watching the packers struggle

I'd sign Vick before Kaepernick.

Kaepernick is a quarterback who requires a certain type of offense, like Seattle's or Carolina's, to thrive.

He's not an accurate passer.

He can't read defenses. If his first option isn't open, he panics and runs. The NFL figured this out pretty quickly.

He's lost in the pocket.

He's afraid to throw deep.

But he is fast.

Is Jeff George still available?

Keenum was way too jumpy and would not step up in the pocket. Not sure you can coach that out of him at this point. He was overthrowing receivers all day. Our defense was OK considering how much time they had to be on the field due to the offense having 3-and-outs. Not sure why we had all the mental mistakes. Those penalties were killer. I don't think Keenum is capable of winning on the road.

And fwiw, I don't believe that Teddy will be able to play this year, especially by week 7. If Bradford is out, it will have to be Keenum or Sloter.

The question is what will that achieve? If Bradford is out significantly this season he is not a long-term (or even short-term) solution at QB. Bridgewater is just question marks currently so the only actual fit QBs are Keenum and Sloter. Throw Kap in there if you want but neither Keenum or Kap are going on a deep playoff run with this team. If that's the position we're in i'd rather go 4-12 and draft a QB high than scratch together a 7-9, achieve nothing and not have a shot at a QB in the draft.

Fingers crossed Bradford improves this week, feels ominous that there wasn't an 'event' that caused it though and seems to just be wear and tear after one game

Was Treadwell in because he and Keenum have some chemistry playing with the #2s or is he finally going to get some quality playing time?

Love the way Cook runs.

I'm not very disappointed in the loss. It would have been nice to steal a win today but at least this loss in against the AFC. I'd sit Bradford next week too. They're going to need him in weeks 4-6 (DET,CHI,GB).

Average teams look good at home against bad teams and look bad on the road against good teams

Pretty much sums it up for me

I fully expected the loss but what I found frustrating was the undisciplined play and stupid mistakes. They just didn't look prepared and that points to coaching

And seriously this could be the worst ST I've seen. Illegal formation on FG defense ?? Seriously ? How does that even happen in the NFL? And Jet , please just kneel!!! It's painful watching him take it 9 yards deep out to the 15 time and time again. Just brutal

And I really really hope Brock can pick up the defense quickly. Watching Trae'bust getting burned is getting old quickly
