Top Ten Pics

Last night I sat up thinking about what to write about in my blog. Today I think I’ll keep it simple and just show and talk about my top ten pictures of the game. Green Bay won 22-9 on defense and field goals, but there were still a few nice images along the way. Here we go.

My favorite photo of the day was of Green Bay Packers’ A.J. Hawk losing his helmet as he tackled Detroit Lions’ Joique Bell in the third quarter. The guy doesn’t hold back …

1I was excited to see that Clay Matthews was going to play because, of course, he is a sacking machine. I got a nice shot of him making a one-handed sack of Detroit Lions’ Matthew Stafford but it was costly. He was injured on the play and is now out again for a few weeks. Bummer …

2To be honest, I was surprised at the lack of touchdowns in this game. There was only one. Green Bay Packers’ James Jones ran for an 83-yard touchdown reception against Detroit Lions’ Chris Houston in the third quarter. Fortunately, even though he was on the other side of the field, he turned towards me for a few steps allowing me to get an image from the only touchdown on the day …

3Speaking of touchdowns, I was totally bummed out after what I thought was a second touchdown was called back. Green Bay Packers’ James Jones stepped out of bounds while trying to score a touchdown against Detroit Lions’ Chris Houston in the fourth quarter right in front of me. Arrgghhh!!! Next time stay in bounds please …

4I knew I had to keep my eyes on Reggie Bush. So did everybody else …

5There were a lot of dropped passes on the day. But the ones that were pulled down were impressive …

6bGreen Bay Packers’ Brad Jones (59) celebrated sacking Detroit Lions’ Matthew Stafford by doing a dance in the first quarter. I love that while still on the ground, Stafford is watching Jones’ moves …

7Detroit Lions’ Brandon Pettigrew hurdled over Green Bay Packers’ Davon House for a first down reception in the second quarter. On this play I actually shot quite a few frames of Pettigrew before he got to House. Let’s just say my eyes got big when he decided to get some air …

8Detroit was without their best receiver, but that didn’t stop them from throwing the ball entirely. Fortunately Green Bay was able to shut them down …

9bLastly, I have to give credit to Mason Crosby because he hit everything. The man deserves to have a smile on his face …

10So that’s it. My top ten from Sunday’s game. Do you have a favorite? Any feedback for me? Game day at Lambeau is always the highlight of my year. Can’t wait for Cleveland to come to town. Seeya in a couple weeks and thanks for stopping by … Dan.
