Question of if the O can put the hammer down full throttle if they get into a true shoot out with a passing team like GB.

Question of our secondary able to cover the passing game with good passing QB.

Question of the Marciano factor.

Question of opposing RB being offered a red carpet through the middle of the DL.

Question of getting out of the RZ once in there.

Question of being able to pick up 3rd or 4th and 1 or 2 yds in cramped quarters.

Question of telling time.

Right on. You can always tell when the script runs out because theres a lull in the offense till they make in game adjustments. And sorry if we dont sound grateful bill. Just want to dominate the teams that have had a field day stomping us for the last decade. Kubiak is one of the best in the buisness.

I'm very concerned with our defense. I really hope we have a good showing against Rodgers.

1.Coach Joe
2. A WR that can win one on one against an above avg CB. Excluding AJ, he needs more help at this stage of his career.
3. Gary, he needs to sharpen his playcalling. Particularly in the RZ.
4. Shore up the interior run defense.

Question of our secondary able to cover the passing game with good passing QB. With Joseph's groin issue this is a much bigger factor

Question of the Marciano factor. agreed special teams are abysmal this year

Question of opposing RB being offered a red carpet through the middle of the DL. With Cushing out it's definitely more of a concern, but Dobbins is a good run stopper. LB pass coverage I think is the bigger issue here

Question of getting out of the RZ once in there.

Question of being able to pick up 3rd or 4th and 1 or 2 yds in cramped quarters. I'm confident in this area but not supremely sure of success, I feel we can do well enough in this area that it's not a complete liability

Question of telling time.
Some counter thoughts in bold

OL- good as it gets
QB - great with decent backup
RB - great with great backup
WR - in trouble if AJ gets hurt
TE - playing great
DL - obviously great
OLB - good, sealing the edges amazingly
ILB - one-dimensional now that the only one who can play both pass and run well is injured
CB - good
S - good

I see our biggest problems as the longevity of Foster. We used him alot this last week. I understand Tate was out but hopefully he will still have something in the tank come playoffs.

Also the predictibility of 3rd and long play calling. Every time it is either a screen or draw. Other teams seem to know this and line up to stop it every time. Case in point the first 3rd and long on Monday night Harris was right there ready to stop the screen
