ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
Monday, Dec. 17 2007

Quarterback
Bulger played much better than his passer rating (55.4) would indicate, with
both INTs coming on tipped balls. GRADE: B-

Running back
Jackson was on his game, running for a season-high 143 yards; Pittman (6 for
31) chipped in, too. GRADE: A-

Receivers
Several drops hurt, particularly the ball that went through Bennett's hands for
a drive-killing INT. GRADE: D+

Offensive line
Got good push most of the day in running game, but there were pass-blocking
breakdowns and too many penalties. GRADE: C-

Defensive line
Stout against the run save for Grant's 24-yarder; Glover got some good inside
pressure on the pass rush. GRADE: C+

Linebackers
Didn't get much going on blitzes, but a pretty good day by this unit; Chillar's
forced fumble killed one Packers drive. GRADE: B

Secondary
Brown didn't make play on ball on Favre's first TD pass; busted coverage led to
Favre's second TD. GRADE: D+

Special teams
A horrible day in coverage, another missed Wilkins FG, more bad punting from
Jones, negligible return yards. GRADE: F

Coaching
Offense stayed committed to the running game; Haslett's defense gave Favre lots
to think about. GRADE: B-
