I would add tightening up against the "Big" TD play

We have given up the following in the first two games of the season:

80+ yard punt return for TD
80+ yard Pass TD from Kolb to Doucet
30+ yard Pass TD from Kolb to King (granted Beason blew his achilles)
40+ yard Pass TD from Rodgers to Jennings
80+ yard Pass TD from Rodgers to Nelson

Some huge scoring plays given up by our Defense and ST


Get used to that. Giving up big plays is typical in McDermott's (Jim Johnson) defense. It is high risk, high reward but there will always be at least 1-2 big plays just like that in every game. There will be big plays made and big plays given up. Hopefully the ones made outweigh the ones given up.

Hey Johnny how are you liking your new Defensive Coordinator? Just wondering because I have never seen an OL coach become a Defensive Coordinator before.

I just want more wins. I don't care how we get them.

But there's a silver lining in being 0-2.......if there's one way to prepare a rookie QB to for the pressure of a Superbowl is to keep him in win or go home mode every game of the season until he gets there.

All part of the plan.;)

continue to lose and you put him in a "what's the point of this senseless bullshit" mode. eventually, the first win is a relief instead of a morale boosting motivator.

losing is exactly that, losing...no matter how exciting it is to the fans.

You don't have to convince me of that. I'm quite pissed we're not 2-0 and wanna make the playoffs this year! I think we should be 2-0 and gunning for them at this point.

Thank god the rest of the NFC south botched their first week too, leaving us one game behind. It's actually quite easy for us to get back into it, if we pull in a couple of wins over the next couple of weeks, and we win our first divisional games.

That will put us on top of our rivals. Any other year I would have said we dug ourselves into a hole already. This year, I think we're actually still ok. But as always divisional games is what matters, and so far it's just been a warm up round.

We got a pass for losing the first two games. Game one-on the road, new (rookie) QB, new offense, new coaching staff, shortened preseason. Game two-still trying to line up in the right spot and remember the plays, and playing the SB champs. We get no pass if we lose the next one. It's a home game and the Jags are a mess at QB. It can be close but we either win or we suck.
