He said that carrying forward the renewed energy while playing for a new coach that was evident from the 34-20 victory over the Falcons will be a challenge going forward.I imagine a lot of those guys were watching the game. Intelligent men that they are, (they know) were going to have to play an awfully good football game on Sunday at noon in Chicago, Philbin said Monday.It has been a week since the offensive coordinator replaced the fired Mike McCarthy.Philbin said that he doesnt plan to install his own tweaks to the teams schedule. The Packers have kept a relatively similar preparation routine.That steady approach was a hit with Philbins players, most of whom had not been on the team during his previous stint in Green Bay (2003-2011).There were rave reviews from many players Bryan Bulaga Jersey , including quarterback Aaron Rodgers, one of the few holdovers from Philbins first tour; and receiver Davante Adams, who hadnt played for Philbin before he returned this year as coordinator.12View Gallery Gallery:PHOTOS: Packers vs. FalconsJeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports | Jeff HanischEverybody just bought in. You could feel it around the locker room, you can feel it in plays. Everybody bought in to what Joe has given us, said cornerback Bashaud Breeland, who signed with the team midseason and barely knew Philbin before he became the interim coach.Breeland returned an interception 22 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter to give the Packers a 17-7 lead, a turning point early in the game.He took control the first day he stepped in. It was a glorious moment for him to step in and get this win, Breeland said.Philbin didnt get off to a smooth start on Sunday.He challenged back-to-back sideline catches by Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones in the span of 19 seconds early in the game, losing both reviews. It left him without a replay challenge for the final 57 minutes of the game.Philbin was still convinced on Monday that the first call should have been overturned. But he said that he shouldnt have thrown the challenge flag on the second.I did establish an NFL record, myself J'Mon Moore Color Rush Jersey , yesterday, Philbin deadpanned. Thats forever in the books.Kidding aside, Rodgers, who has been close with Philbin since his rookie season of 2005, praised Philbin for his even-handed approach during a tumultuous week.He was in a tough situation this week with the change and trying to get the right messages across to get guys motivated at a time where (the team was 4-7-1) and most people expect us to maybe throw in the towel, Rodgers said.And guys didnt. Guys responded. Im proud of them but Joe deserves a lot of credit for the vision he set forth this week.Now, its back to work, with the daunting challenge of the Bears (9-4) up next as the Packers try to get their first victory on the road after an 0-6 start.We havent had the type of success on the road that we need to have as a football team, Philbin said Thats really all were focused on right now. To sum up the divisional race in week 13 of the NFL season, the Chicago Bears lost no ground in the NFC North title hunt despite their first loss since October. But that loss took a back seat to the news that shortly followed on Sunday: the Green Bay Packers firing of Mike McCarthy.All around the division https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Nick-Perry-Jersey , there is much being said about the Packers former head coach, who was relieved of duties after the teams 20-17 loss to the lowly Arizona Cardinals. After 13 seasons and a 125-77-2 record, McCarthys legacy around the division is that of a productive head coach that became a nemesis for the Packers rivals. One such competitor went as far to label it a mistake in wake of Sundays news.However, McCarthy may be the first domino to fall for NFC North coaching shake-ups, at least since the Lions firing of Joe Marciano as special teams coach earlier this season.
