Looking Back: Stats and Film Review From Week 4

Tom Pelissero has another one of his great weekly articles breaking down game film for the Green Bay Packers. He gives special props to LB Clay Matthews and TE Jermichael Finley. And goes into more detail on why SS Derrick Martin got benched (and will probably stay there a while):

The Packers were playing Cover-2, meaning Martin was responsible for playing deep behind CB Al Harris. Instead, Martin inexplicably lined up on the hash marks, as if in Cover-3, and had no chance to get anywhere near Berrian, much less break up QB Brett Favre’s perfect pass. 

Football Outsiders posted their week 4 Quick Reads. RB Matt Forte was the best RB on Sunday, although playing against the Lions always helps. QB Brett Favre comes in at No. 3 among QBs, QB Aaron Rodgers is close behind at No. 6, and QB Matt Stafford almost cracks the top 10 at No. 11. QB Jay Cutler had a 2 TD, 0 INT game on Sunday, but he's down at No. 20 because 141 yards on 28 pass attempts (5 yards/attempt) against the Lions ain't pretty.
