If this team had some consistency on offense they'd be an unquestioned NFC Super Bowl contender, likely favorite, even with a healthy Rodgers.

5-2. 3 wins in a row. Sole possession of first place.

Two quick observations

OL no sacks for 2nd week in a row
Special teams give up zero big plays today and convert 6 FGs

Speaking of special teams, Kearse is turning out to be really good on ST. He's always one of the first guys down there and does a good job of keeping contain.

We'll see. Zimmer hasn't been exactly transparent with his injuries but possibly a glimmer of good news on the horizon.
@christomasson Mike Zimmer does not believe injuries to Reiff and Sirles serious

Seemed like Isadora and Hill filled in nicely today.

Looking ahead, depending on severity of Joe Thomas' triceps injury, Griffen might get to eat vs. starve in London. Knowing how tough Thomas is, he'll probably cauterize it or cut it off and attach a robot arm he ripped off a Terminator he just destroyed with a suplex.

Conversely, we need Reiff out there to contain that freak Garrett. I like Hill but I don't trust him enough vs. that animal.

Murray had an alright game, eh PHP?

I enjoyed the game. The wiff thought it was boring, with all the field goals. (She was distracted by some of her family that was over).
Forbath... excellent on FGs horrible on PAT...
Sendejo needs to learn when to hold up a bit.
Keenum is serviceable only because of our defense. I am thankful to have him as our back up but we need to get one of our starters back.
The Refs hate us. Lack of PI calls (except when Theilin got called for pushing out of that hug). And the lack of call for the high low hit on Keenum.
Enjoy seeing Barr fired up. Enjoy our intelligent and disciplined defense.
Murray 100yd game and TD.

Good win. 6-2 going into the bye! SKOL!

Like I said, I've watch Murray for a long time and played against him 2 years in high school. He's a solid RB. Just need to keep pounding him. He's a grinder

My guess is from the looks of it, Thomas tore his triceps. He was immediately ruled out

Only saw it once but it looked like he was hurt pretty bad.

Eating crow today, my friend -- and happy to do it. Murray looked really good. Like the Murray that played against us a couple years ago out in Oakland.

Isadora looked really good. He had a few really good blocks, and a big one on Murray's first long run.

Also, I try to avoid this, but the referees were atrocious today. Thielen was being manhandled, and then they called a horrible PI on him. And how was there no roughing the passer call when Baltimore went high and low on Keenum.
