The offensive starters were in for one series, a simple 3 and out affair. Not much to report there.  

The defensive starters were in for one series, and didn't look bad – but didn't look real good either. Their replacements didn't fair very good at all, and I'm starting to worry about the 3-4 now. They didn't stop the run tonight, and the Titans sure found some pretty wide open receivers down the field. If this defense was supposed to shore up the running woes it sure didn't look it tonight, and it has opened up some new receiving problems.

And what's with the fat porno mustache on Rodgers? Horrible. He said he was going home to shave it off… please hurry!

The Packers coaching staff has some real tough decisions to make tomorrow. They have three quality fullbacks, they have to cut one. They have to cut a halfback, and that's always been the bane of their season, because no sooner do they trim the halfbacks and one or more of the remaining ones gets sidelined for an extended period of time – it’s Murphy's Law. I'm thinking right now that DeShawn Wynn is odd man out.

One or two receivers has to go. They played wide receiver and punt return man Brett Swain as a DB in the second half, interesting. Wide receiver and punt return man Ruvell Martin flubbed a punt and ended up giving the ball back, not good. But, he's also the backup holder on field goals and the emergency QB. Tough call, but I'd lean toward keeping Martin.

They have lots of linebackers, but they need lots of linebackers, so cuts are going to have to made elsewhere. There are several DBs and safeties that won't be here this Sunday, but just who that would be is a good question, because none of them had a real quality camp. So there's cuts to be made there.  

At least They can say that they are settled on the kickers with Mason Crosby and Jeremy Kapinos. I didn't notice any long snapping problems, so they must have found a workable solution in Brett Goode.

Considering the Packers luck with injured offensive lineman, I'm hoping that the healthy ones that they have to cut end up back with the Packers on their practice squad.

I'm still not real happy about the backup QB situation. Matt Flynn has a shoulder issue and Brian Brohm is finally starting to play like a pro quarterback, albeit like a rookie pro quarterback. If Aaron Rodgers gets banged up and has to miss any time, they are going to be in a world of hurt if they have to rely on one of those two to keep the ship upright!

And what's with the fat porno mustache on Rodgers? Geez, and I thought that last year's Civil War mutton chops beard was bad!
