Green Bay Packers: Packers cured of ‘Colinitis’

5 of 7

Oct 4, 2015; Santa Clara, CA, USA; Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (12) calls a play against the San Francisco 49ers in the first quarter at Levi

Offensive line may have had its worst performance of the season to date.

Aaron Rodgers was under pressure for much of the afternoon. Rodgers seemed to get hit harder and more often this week.

You have to give credit to the 49ers players for playing hard and holding the Packers offense in check for much of the game.

Defensive backs played a lot of press man to man coverage. This tight coverage made ARod hold the ball more than he wanted and scramble a little too much.

It seemed the Aaron was not able to step up into the pocket and glide into open lanes as in week’s past. Credit 49er’s defensive game plan for forcing Rodgers into situations that made him uncomfortable.

It seemed the Aaron Rodgers got pressured the most from the left side and ROLB Aaron Lynch (against David Bakhtiari). Lynch was credited with two sacks and a number of QB hurries.

Offensive linemen also put Rodgers into several 2nd /3rd and long situations after being called for holding on at least five occasions. I seemed to remember pro-bowl guard Josh Sitton being penalized three times for holding.

Bryan Bulaga should be coming back from his torn meniscus in his left knee soon (likely after the bye week).

All-in-all, the offensive line did enough to keep Aaron Rodgers upright long enough to help secure another Packer’s victory.

Next: 4-0 Packers still looking to improve
