Love it, Like it, Leave it : Week Two

It's time for this weeks love it, like it, leave it for the second week of the season. The Pack got back in the left hand column with a beat down of the Washington Redskins at Lambeau Field Sunday afternoon.

Love it:

This one is pretty easy, Aaron Rodgers is really good at football. Rodgers completed 34 of 42 passes for 480 yards and 4 TDs. Rodgers tied the single-game passing yards record on his way to a dominating day. The Packers switched focus a little to more quick throws, and the results were spectacular. The Packers' receivers made a lot of great plays for Rodgers after the catch. It reminded me of the 2011 version of this offense. In all, the changes added up to an historic day not only for Rodgers, but the entire Packers' offense.

Like it:

James Starks had the first 100+ yard rushing day for the Packers since 2010. If not for Rodgers' historic day, this would have made the top spot this week. After Lacy went down with a concussion, Starks reminded everyone just how talented he is when healthy. Starks rushed for 132 yards and a TD in rout to an historic day for the Packers' offense. It marked the first time in franchise history that the Packers had a 400 yard passer and 100 rusher in the same game. Conclusion, Lacy and Starks (if healthy) could be a nice combo in the backfield moving forward. Not bad for a guy that almost got cut before the start of the season.

Honorable mention, Jermichael Finley. Finley had a few nice catches and is showing more toughness as a runner, refusing to go down after first contact. If he keeps it up, he could have a huge year.

Leave it:

Even though the game was decided by half-time (if not the end of the 1Q), the Packers secondary clearly still needs work. It is easy to dismiss the passing numbers this week because the defense was playing soft coverage protecting a large lead, but after watching Seahawks-49ers in the Sunday Night game it only proved just how far the Packers' secondary has to go. The defense gave up 320 yards passing to RGIII and the Redskins offense. For the second straight week, receivers were running free in the Packers' secondary. Getting Hayward and Burnett healthy will help, but the defensive backs still have a lot of work to do.

Edit Note: Fixed title.
