Punting problems lead to 35-7 loss to Bears
From Peter King's Monday Morning Quarterback courtesy of Si.com:
Goat of the Week
"Green Bay P Jon Ryan. I know the wind was awful in the Windy City, but come on. Two punts blocked, in part because of his glacially slow mechanics, and one fumbled snap from center. That's intolerable on a team that needed this game to stay in the home-field race with Dallas."
Isn't he from Canada eh??? To punt like that in those conditions is pretty tough, but the Bears punter didn't seem to have any problems. Ryan needs to get the ball out a lot quicker. The Packers have had strong Special Teams play and surely needed it last Sunday vs the Bears. The Pack lost 35-7 in sub zero temperatures and 50+ mph wind. Playing at Dallas might not be too bad of an idea for the NFC Championship.
