Aaron Rodgers has been O’Sullivanated
It was supposed to be the game of the Alex Smith – Aaron Rodgers matchup, but instead it was the O’Sullivan show. The man who has been on lots of teams outperformed Aaron Rodgers, which was nice.
But it wasn’t all JT O’Sullivan, he had help from a solid defense and the new fan favorite Josh Morgan, who finished the day with 5 receptions for 114 yards and a TD and could have had another if Alex Smith had hit him in stride early in the 3rd quarter.
After JT’s rough start he settled down and lead the team on a 92 yard drive. The team overall looked much better than last week. Alex looked much better as did JT. It still appears as if JT has the edge, but he’ll definitely continue to get pressure from Smith.
On the defensive side it is clear that this is the teams strong point. The defense gave up only 182 yards. Dashon Goldson was playing like he’s ready to start and Ray McDonald was again flying off the snap and ended the day with 1.5 sacks. Also Tully Banta-Cain got 2 sacks and 2 forced fumbles.
In the end much better performance than last week, still some things to work on, but if they can continue to produce like they did today. It will at least be a fun season to watch.
