Tough but winnable game on the road vs a playoff caliber team.

30-23

I think we lose a close one here guys. I have a lot of respect for their D. The key to this game for me: Us getting turnovers


Well we were on a roll there. Sucks to be right again. Once we took the lead I thought we would keep it. I think there will be some changes from this game. Thank god we have a bye!

Losing James Starks hurt. Johnathan Franklin did good, but would have been better if he could have been backed up by Starks.
Losing Jermichael Finley hurts the offense big time. I wonder if any Finley haters will acknowledge that yet.
Losing Clay Matthews III didn't help things either.

Bottom line, Packers were outplayed and are simply not a contender.

@jasonjwilde Bakhtiari misses cut block at the most critical time. Johnson deflects pass intended for Jones. #Packers will lose 34-30.

If there were only 5:00 remaining after that bad INT by Rodgers, we win. Instead there were 15:00.

There's plenty we can learn from in this game.

Tough loss. O-line got crushed in the last drive causing all those tipped passes. Hopefully we can come out healthy after the bye and get our key players back.

Over reaction. The Packers are still a contender, as much as the Bengals, 49'ers, and even a few other hopefuls are. They just have to get healthy. They're not Super Bowl favorites, but so long as they make the playoffs and can be relatively healthy, they'll be contending. Just make it to the dance (playoffs), and then everyone is 0-0. Recent history has proved that several times.

With all those tipped passes we better start calling some screens.

We will either win the division this year and take the #4 seed or we won't be in the playoffs.

I disagree. I still think the Packers will win 9, and maybe 10 games this season. I expect them to come back strong after the bye, so long as they start getting players healthy. Ten wins would be enough to win the division or get a wild card spot, imo.

That's my opinion, not a reaction, not an over reaction.

Just don't see the depth to overcome the injuries and the play execution is lacking big time. I also don't care for Rodgers throwing it deep all the time. This season, it hasn't worked in the several times I've noticed a wide open guy in the flat that would have netted a first down.

Simply put. The Packers aren't playing smart football. It appears they are playing arrogant football. Basically saying, we are the Packers, we are talented, give us the win.

My opinion, they are not contenders until some of these issues I mentioned are improved. The season is long. Got 13 more games. Anything can and will happen.


This opinion will most likely change vastly when players like Burnett, Matthews, Starks, Lacy, Bush, etc are healthier and the OL gets more games to gel.

Why does ESPN's Greg Easterbrook know that if you're 1st and goal, and you run, run, run, you'll score a TD better than 75% of the time, but Mike McCarthy does not?

Stupid football. Foolish play calling. Learn how to call a run game Mike...

I'd bet McCarthys teams convert in the red zone/ goal line area at a higher percentage than most if not all other teams.

Another bizarre loss. It's depressing, but came within a hair of winning both games despite all the crap of officiating, poor O Line play, inconsistent defense, uncharacteristic interceptions, injuries to key players.

Maybe I'm overly optimistic, but even if it was this bad every week, I just don't see us losing to hardly anybody else. And does anybody really think all this crap is gonna happen on a consistent basis?
