    And guess whose fraudulent coaching arse passed over Rodgers for Alex Smith because he thought Rodgers wouldn't take to coaching because he questioned being asked to pass a football through his legs like a basketball?

    Mike Nolan.

    It takes a great pass rush to beat him. You can’t give him time to throw or he’ll shred you. The teams/defenses that have beaten him when the Packers have been really good put a lot of pressure on him. They really got after him.

    I never thought Mike Nolan was a good coach but 22 other teams passed on Aaron Rodgers and a few of those teams ended up with busts. I’m sure Washington was ready to pounce on Rodgers at number 24 but they ended up with Jason Campbell at number 25. At least Marcus Spears ended up being a pretty good player for us.

    Oh, that's not a rip on the Cowboys. They, along with all the other teams passed on Rodgers. I was just pointing out that Nolan has been fraud of a coach for a long time. Living in the Bay Area, I was here for his whole tenure with the 49ers. He was caught up in wearing suits on the sidelines, the "smell of the locker room," and other bits of nonsense including his reasoning for passing on Rodgers ultimately.

    Passing on Randy Moss was the Cowboys biggest draft blunder. That blunder came back to haunt us just 7 months later on Thanksgiving when he torched us. That blunder haunted us even more the following year when we lost Michael Irvin to a career ending injury. Passing on Moss resulted in another huge blunder 2 years later with Jerry giving up two first round picks for Joey Galloway. Passing on Moss ended up crippling the franchise with everything that transpired after.

    Great offenses beat great defenses.

    AD is not overhyped that for sure, you do realize he also played hurt, he would have missed 2 reg season games but this game was meant too much, he played through it,

    Ramseys a bit hyped but when you come up against the Packers and rogers as hot as they are, its hard to win especially on the road..

    the real moral t this is those years we had great teams and rogers killed our runs its not as bad as it seemed as it happens to many teams..

    The media builds these players up to be gods when they're only human.

    wasn't the issue the Packers played better in all phases they brought a strong run game, a HOF qb on fire throwing to one of the best WRs in the league, and very good defense...add in coaching at home and that why they beat the rams they were just too good a TEAM not an offense a TEAM..

    It's the recipe to beat all great QBs. Time-tested.

    It’s the only way to contain a great QB which is why edge rusher’s are the second most coveted position in the draft next to the QB.

    The 2016 playoff game was the last time when Dez was in a position to play I'm Just Better Than You. Their CBs just couldn't hang with him.

    You think that was the Aaron Donald at even 1/2 his best. It ain't the DB that makes the Rams D go.

    The list of what Dak can do is far shorter.

    McCarthy was a huge part of that decision.

    Dont agree with 1 thing you said to be honest. And if you watched the game then you would know that Donald was sitting on the sidelines for much of the game.

    That defense was #1 in the NFL this year and Ramsey and Donald were the key to that. Cooper Kupp was also out, their best offensive weapon.

    Rams will be even better next season. Great young RB over there to round out the offense.

    Actually impressive that in two off seasons McVay has turned them from an offensive heavy team, to the #1 defense team. Offense is going through a makeover and I expect them to be very good next year.

    Splitting hairs. They have the #1 offense in the league, the rams the #1 defense in the league. Glean from that what you will.
