Green Bay Packers vs. New Orleans Saints: Full Report Card Grades for Green Bay - Mike McCarthy will catch some grief for a number of decisions in this game. On the Packers' second offensive possession, Green Bay had second-and-goal at New Orleans' three-yard line. In the offensive huddle is Julius Peppers (6'7"), and he splits out wide to the left of the formation, singled up on safety Rafael Bush (5'11"). Peppers runs a slant and Rodgers hits him in the numbers, but the former North Carolina hoops star can't haul it in. Packers call timeout, Rodgers is sacked on third down and the offense has to settle for a field goal. On the ensuing kickoff, McCarthy tries to steal a possession with a surprise-onside kick. It fails. But, I'm in McCarthy and ESPNWisonsin.com's Jason Wilde's court on this:
Not going to kill McCarthy for either of those. Peppers drops TD. McCarthy has surprise onside kicked before, and #Packers had shot at that.

In the third quarter, there's the aforementioned run play on fourth-and-1 in the third quarter which the Packers failed to execute. Here's where I have a gripe with McCarthy; instead of running behind your All-Pro left guard Josh Sitton, the play was ran to the right, and injury replacement Lane Taylor blows the block. Green Bay doesn't convert, Saints turn good field position into a touchdown. To win in New Orleans, you have to play with some sack. If Peppers catches a touchdown and the Packers execute the surprise-onside kick, everybody hails McCarthy as a genius. I'm not going to second-guess it. Grade: B+

Banged-up Packers defense faces Brees - Banged-up Packers defense to be challenged by Saints' Brees
Banged-up Packers defense faces Brees (The Associated Press) - Asked in the locker room Friday at Lambeau Field what year Drew Brees last threw an interception against Green Bay, veteran Packers cornerback Jarrett Bush answered 2011. ''Wow!'' Bush said, adding in a positive tone, ''OK, so he's due.'' A potentially short-handed Packers secondary faces what coach Mike McCarthy said is ''a big challenge'' against New Orleans' highly ranked pass offense. At 35, Brees still is one of the elite quarterbacks in the NFL with his quick release and a penchant for putting up big numbers. ''He's one of the fastest guys just with his quick passes,'' Packers safety Micah Hyde said.

Carolina Panthers vs. Green Bay Packers: Complete Week 6 Preview for Green Bay - Green Bay's cornerback depth is sure to be tested if either Shields or Williams cannot go. Last week, when both went down, Davon House and Casey Hayward manned the outside, and veteran switchblade Jarrett Bush played the slot nickel. Jamari Lattimore suffered a stinger in last week's win over Miami, Packers.com's Mike Spofford reported. Brad Jones will start in Lattimore's stead if he's unable to go against Carolina. Datone Jones looks on pace to miss his second consecutive game after a strong start to the season.
