Usually a nine point victory leaves teams with a warm and fuzzy feeling in the days following the game, but that's not the attitude Packers fans took away from the team's victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars yesterday, and it's not the position tight end Jermichael Finley took in his post game remarks. "It's not ugly, it's nasty," tight end Jermichael Finley said. "It's a real nasty win. We need to come out and put teams like this away. Of course it's disappointing. With the ability we got and with the guys we got on this team, it kills us. If the defense is looking at us, that's why they're mad at us if we go three-and-out, because they know what we can do." "And we're pissed off at them when teams like Jacksonville drive the ball down the field." Yesterday's win wasn't the most attractive of victories for the Packers; that much is evident. It's difficult to pinpoint exactly how the Jaguars were able to hang around for so long. To further that point, the Jaguars started the game by shooting themselves in the foot multiple times. Had they started the game without those mistakes, the outcome may have been different. It remains to be seen just how this game will effect the Packers, but it should serve as a wake up call. Finley is dead on about the Jaguars. They're not a very good football team, and there was no reason for the game to be competitive so late. The Packers look to be a far cry from last year's squad, and they needed a wake up call, and that's exactly what the Jaguars gave them. [follow]
