Disappointed.

It genuinely seems that Mike had NO backup plan in case Aaron went down.

Certainly looks like Aaron was worth the contract we signed him to now...money well spent.

He should hold next year. [grin1]

And....we get down the field with passes,
and when we get into the ref zone, 2 runs
that gain nothing.
If Mike McCarthy is calling the plays, he should fire
himself.
If Aaron Rodgers doesn't come back NOW, the season
will be over in week 17.

Didn't like the play calling at all. Yes, we do need a run game. But you can't go out there and run it that much when the Giants know it's coming and are stopping it. Especially when Tolzien is moving the ball through the air. Have some confidence in your QB, he doesn't look that bad, minus the interceptions.

Then again, a lot of our offense is a run/pass option. So I'm not sure how much of it was on McCarthy. Could have been Tolzien misreading the defenses. I'm just speculating though.

Tolzien does show some nice down field throws. Unfortunately those INTs are going to kill us. I am wondering if the conservative play-calling in the red zone had more to do with the mess ups last week while in the red zone.

No Rodgers, no wins.
We will get whipped by the Vikings next week. Aaron Rodgers covered up alot of our defense's weaknesses,
as we feel we can stay in any game as long
as he is our QB.
Without him, we are done. That's been proven by
the last 3 games.

We got eggs? ... I'm gonna make me an omelette in the morning. [grin1]


But on a more serious note, it's hard enough to find good starters, good back-ups on top of that can be even tougher.


The Packers expected one of back-ups QBs to step up... they didn't. And Packers had to go to plan B... when plan B failed they went to plan C and D. Plan C failed... plan D is working out sort of okay. But when you have that many plans fail, it's hard to find someone good right away and that more than one basket... that's 4 baskets... but the first 3 had a hole in the bottom of them and the eggs fell out of them. There was one basket left and they grabbed Flynn so now two again.

Interesting from Jason Pierre-Paul on Pick-6: Honestly, I called it before it even happened in the huddle, and sure enough that was the play

JPP: I read the formation, the tight end, how he was set and I caught the ball.

I get the sentiment, but the offense is probably scaled down a lot with Tolzien at QB. He just hasn't had the time to practice everything enough, so it's more predictable. I know McCarthy said the offense would be the same, but I don't buy that.

Me neither and that INT was the killer. We need a backup with an off season program. This one week and supposed to be ready shit ain't gonna fly. Not in the NFL.

Even though it was a tough game to be at i had a lot of fun up until that pick 6. The Packers fans there were awesome and there were many of them. We even had a go pack go chant going as we went up the escalator. I met a photographer who works for the green bay press gazette. His name was Evan Siegle. Really awesome guy. My friends and I made some makeshift Tolzien jerseys which he loved so he snapped a few pictures. Here is one he posted on twitter.


EDIT: Can't figure out how to embed it. Anyone wanna help lol?

uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.

Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!

Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : Tolzien being evaluated for concussion. What?
