Apparently my call for the defense not to suck fell on deaf ears because they sucked again. The Packers scored touchdowns on 4 out of 5 possessions. It’s true that the offense and special teams put the defense in a couple of bad spots, but there’s still no excuse.
The defense could help us win the turnover battle if they weren’t so busy giving up embarassing plays. Obviously the offense is going to turn it over once in a while – I’m not really sure we can blame them for each and every turnover.
Not that the offense was great fun to watch either with all the penalties. Shockey and Toomer got especially bad penalties called on them (though Shockey’s should still have been a first and Toomer’s I’m not so sure about). Speaking of receivers, Steve Smith is hurt and will miss some time.
