You can’t do that. One thing I’ll just share with you: God don’t like ugly. So the little credit that (Griffin) did take for saying that, ‘Hey, they didn’t like what I was doing,’ or ‘they benched me and not allowing me to play,’ that’s what happens.
So 2014 comes, and Jay Gruden comes in, and he don’t care. We see that now. He doesn’t care. He doesn’t care what he says about you, he doesn’t care what he says at you. And he rips RG every chance he gets, like every meeting, and we’re sitting there looking like, ‘Yeah. You know what? You were just so happy that Mike and Kyle and them is gone, but now you’re getting your behind ripped every day, because you’re not playing the kind of football that we need to play for us to be successful.’
The Packers will try to avenge last season’s 44-21 loss to the Falcons in the NFC championship game. The Falcons shredded Green Bay’s defense to the tune of 493 yards as Matt Ryan passed for 392 yards and four touchdowns. Julio Jones was on the receiving end of two of those scores as he ended the day with nine catches for 180 yards.
The Packers made significant upgrades on their defense and looked good last Sunday in shutting down the Seahawks. But the Falcons present a different challenge and one the Packers must pass in order to establish themselves as the true favorites in the NFC.
Washington State senior Luke Falk threw for 396 yards and six touchdowns in a 37-of-49 night to lead the Cougars to a 52-23 win over Oregon State. The 6-4, 223-pound senior did not throw an interception and now has 900 yards with nine touchdowns and one pick in three games.
Mississippi State junior Nick Fitzgerald led the Bulldogs to a 37-7 rout of No. 12 LSU. The 6-5, 230-pound quarterback went 15 of 23 for 180 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 88 yards and two more scores on 14 carries.
