    I thought Brooks was our best player on defense. Mac was a stud too. Aldon also had a great game. Brooks got a tonne of pressure and a couple sacks as well as doing what he does in the running game.

    Yup. Probably a function of him knowing he was never going to get the ball IMO.

    Oh well, no big deal at the end of the day but hopefully the team reemphasizes how important that is.

    Brooks was average at best, IMO. His sack stats looked nice, but he failed to set the edge and containment far too much. Lacey's gains came on Brooks' side after attacking (and getting nothing) on Aldon's side in the first quarter. Rodgers' only TD throw also came when Brooks crashed inside, allowing Rodgers to roll out and hit the mark. Very little chance that happens with Rodgers in the pocket.

    He had 2 sacks and like 10 pressures. That's not even close to average.

    It is, when the majority of the pressure came from RayM and Justin up the middle, with Aldon drawing extra attention. That's why he was easily the best player on defense. He took on multiple blockers the whole game through, and the Packers basically quit trying to run to his side after the first period. The primary reasons why Rodgers couldn't step up in the pocket were basically those three guys, and Brooks' role was more of a beneficiary. Like I said, stats don't tell the true story.
