    To be fair Hanson in Red Zone was saying the same dumb shit. I miss Siciliano's redzone, way better.
    They might need to onside just because their defense has no chance of getting a stop.

    And they couldn't get a stop

    Yeah one of the few times that totally makes sense to onside it because the defense couldn't stop anything. Almost got the ball back too. But they didn't HAVE to onside it as the announcers and Hanson were implying.

    That was an absolute horseshit call on special teams. Horsecollar tackle my ass. He grabbed jersey way below the name plate, which is just a tackle. -_-

    And now Hoyer officially out with a head injury for the rest of the game.

    On to 3rd string and rookie QB Bailey Zappe. Let's see what you got kid. No one is expecting you to win this one or even keep it close, so no pressure.

    Raiders trying an onside kick in the 2nd quarter is an interesting decision.

    Sometimes McDaniels likes to be too clever for his own good.

    Hopefully we don't try that one again

    Melvin Gordon is kind of becoming a problem now.

    Raiders defense is kind of trash.

    I get Rodgers being flustered by the rb being on the wrong side but he pulled a russell Wilson by throwing the ball away instead of running a few yards for the first.

    I'm sure the Packers will figure things out in the second half, and that Bailey Zappe will not be able to keep up with Rodgers, but I'll treasure that Rodgers pick 6 at Lambeau and his annoyed expression over it for the rest of my life. That was hilarious. Not quite at the level of Sherman's expression when Russel Wilson threw the pick in the end zone in the Super Bowl, but very very good.

    We lost our key linebacker for the game with a concussion. Perryman really is a keystone to this defence. Starting cb also out too in Ya-Sin.

    I officially hate our Oline, I hate we didn't invest in that right side, it was our biggest weakness over the offseason and we've failed to address it.

    Bailey Zappe just got MASSIVELY bailed out by the refs. TD Patriots.

    He got a delay of game, got back to the line, and was AGAIN too late, but they didn't flag him this second time. TD. LOL.

    Who designs a pass play where you don't block Crosby? That's mental.

    That is offensive genius Nathaniel Hackett. He also brings bad screens that never work, swing passes to covered RBs for 0 yards and 3 yard passes to covered receivers on 3rd and long.

    Our offence really can't close out games.

    How that isn’t a td is mind boggling. Even reviewed it and got it (pretty quickly) wrong.

    Overtime in Lambeau. xD

    I've maintained we lose this game throughout this game, and I still think that, but it has been a hilarious game none the less.

    Rodgers gets the ball first. Game on (again).

    Defense got worn out. Felt like the Raiders offense was on the field the whole second half. Offense only having 2 drives with more than 5 plays all game is rough.

    This is still a loss, and a loss is bad, but, the job to take on Rodgers and the Packers, at Lambeau, with your 3rd string QB, and then somehow take them to OT is just absurd. One of Belichick's and the coaching staff's finest efforts within a game that I have ever seen.

    If Mac is still out next week, just roll with Zappe as the QB1, and see what happens with a full week to prepare, cause the game definitely didn't seem to big for him on short notice.
