Your secondary might be banged up but the Eagles have still done a great job back there.

Against other teams we'd have racked up the score by now. 

That was a nasty hit ... hope the bloke is alright.  Friendly fire this time

I was just about to say Rodgers has thrown for 400+ yards... To a wide open Secondary....

And then THAT happens.

Amazing.

Rodgers throws a pick at Lambeau.

Football is the winner.

There should be another name for that ... I see a 'Pick' as a throw to an opposition player

But luck plays a part in sport.  Eagles were the better team on the night though.  It's a game of inches and we've had our fair share of luck over the years

If the Packers had a decent running game we'd have probably won ... more so at Lambeau though.  At Philadelphia it's tougher.

Oh and congrats on 300 pages for the thread.

He's got another 4 goes at it from close range. Can the Eagles double-up?  If so,  you deserve to win

Given what happened to Maddox, have to agree.

That's a massive win. Feels like 3 wins in one. Packers at home and playing well, Rodgers 400+ yards, 2 goal line stands with a D that was hurting and playing average... 2-2 becomes 1-3... Absolutely massive. Had that pencilled in as a loss... Mind you had Detroit as a win... so what do I know.

Yeah there should. Why throw slants at that position in the field?

Yeah agree on run game. That was the real difference. Rodgers shaded Wentz a bit, but not by a lot... The difference really was the run game of both sides compared to each other (as opposed to compared to run D).

 

300!!!! Fitting it's you and me ticking it over.

Packers have shown me enough to say that we can contend.  Eagles too

The NFC is up for grabs

Meanwhile over in the AFC the Pats can stay there.  Stay away from our conference!

Yeah. Says a lot when your Pats supporting mates message you laughing at how bad your team is even when they put 34 up against Packers at Lambeau.

Having another look... Packers D is properly legit this year. That's a helluva thing to do against them.

I still have a sneaky feeling Chiefs will threaten in a big way... But yeah. Pats historic. Apparently first team in Superbowl era to not allow an offensive TD through three games.

Jeez. Weird week. Most Dlanders off to a flyer in the tipping though. I don't reckon I got 3 weeks right through the whole season last year.

It's been a good round for a comp based on tipping away wins. You could have just about used the dartboard this week & got away with it.

Well Goff gave up more horrendous INT’s (gotta be nearly as many as last year.)

Coach Dungy said, they know if you pressure Goff, and he is no good. 

Wonderkid McVay gotta come up with a new plan, no running game, Gurley looks half the player he was and a QB that is failing in the red zone big time. 

Seahawks this Thur.

Dont back us, we will lose this 17-31

You'd probably get 100-1 on that exact scoreline! 

What's the bet it comes off? (100-1 of course)

Here is my thoughts as I watched the game. 

Qtr 1

Still no 1st qtr TDs, Goff is missing easy passes, takes great field position and does very little with it, throws into double coverage all too often.

Lockets TD catch was epic, we dominate and they take the lead. Gurley looks good

 

Qtr 2

Goff is still poo early, Our secondary think more of covering spare grass than players down the field. Peters shouldn’t get a contract next year. Use that money elsewhere. O-line is needed.

Kupp is a star. Gurley is stripped after Goff finally looks good.

Seattle hit Goff low, huge mistake as Goff fires a bullet to Kupp. 

We get ball to start 2nd half. Game on. Gotta stop the big plays, secondary needs to get on their game.

Donald is the best player in the league bar none. I would pick him if I was starting a team over every other player.

 

Qtr 3. 

Love the start, get it to the TE’s who have been ignored due to WR and Gurley, then Gurley paaaaaaayounded it in from the 8yrd line.

Goff throws behind Woods when we are on our 2 yard line. Still don’t like him with pressure, he should and needs to hit that pass, he was not under that much pressure. He just plain pooped his pantaloons again. then next play he nearly throws a pick after taking Waaaaaay too long. 3 and out.

Yup. Peters is overrated. Gives up way too much and if Phillips can’t make him elite, he will stay full of potential and good moments .

 

Qtr 4.

Good hold by the D early. 

Goff throws a great pass to Cooks, got us out of a 3 and out. 

So many penalties against us and each there and most bloody stupid. Just killed a first down. 3&13 now.

What a throw to get over that 3rd down!

Challenge of Woods was close. Unfortunately prob right call. 

So many missed tackles especially in the backfield. Should have had at least two more sacks, and 3 or more loss of yards on Carson. (Who has been immense)

RTP CD Matthews is a [censored] disgrace.

Absolute bloody terrible decision.

How the hell is Carson alone in the end zone???

Great defending by Peters on the 2. 

Still fuming on the Matthews call! Fuming! 

Goff stains his pants again and throws a pick after missing two other throws.

Wilson throws it back to Lockett for a big loss. Doesn’t even give them a chance for a 4th down go.

Goff should have been picked again. 2nd and inches and he throws. Bad call. Pound it.

False start... urrrgggghhh kills you.

Don’t know what our penalties are at but it would be big yards.

Great block from Gurley. 

Massive throw and grab for Everett 

Heart is pounding!

Delay of game... what the hell!

Gain of 9

Enter Zuerlien...

No good. By inches.

 

Shattered.

The Matthews penalty cost us the lead and Goff couldn’t get it back.

Cooks getting injured seem to hurt us late as they stayed more with Kupp and Woods. 

[censored] I hate Seattle.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ
