Green Bay got bad news on Friday when Aaron Rodgers was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, but Packers coach Mike McCarthy pointed out that "bad news' isn't the same thing as devastating news.

The media want to portray this season as "the season of our backup QB position." But it's really the season of our shit sucking run defense.

(and it was a little surprising that a reporter actually asked McCarthy if the Packers could beat the Steelers with Flynn),

A little surprising? I've heard reporters ask some pretty stupid questions but if one actually did ask a question phrased in a way asking Mike McCarthy if he thought the Packers could beat the Steelers with Matt Flynn the guy must be been stupid or stoned or both. That moron should have his press credentials revoked.

What the hell are you talking about? When Rodgers went down, the Packers were the 5th ranked rushing defense.

Isn't that the point? The most noticeable impact of the injury was the complete collapse of the defense in the following two games.

Edit: This may have just been sarcasm in which case i am just slow on the take.

Wasn't The most noticeable impact of the injury that the offense couldn't move the ball, and when they did they turned it over?

I'm not giving the defense a pass this season, but this crap about blaming ONLY the defense for The Packers not winning in November is just that CRAP!

The NFL today is all about scoring points!!!!

When a teams offense does not produce points, sooner or later the defense is going to break down.

That's all in the past, all I know is The 2013 Packers have 2 games left in the regular season, they win them and all this lamenting about November will be a faint bad memory.

That's just MHO of course, I tend to try to dwell on the positive(2 game winning streak), and look foward not backward. [laughing]

It was just strange how the D went from top 5 to bottom 5 right around the time that 12 got the bone. We did however lose our entire LB core at the same time though so maybe not a total coincidence. So damn tired of the injuries.

Take a look at thr rb's The Packers faced, and how many yards they gave up.

The night Aaron went down, it was Matt Forte, he managed to go over 100, but that is pretty normal for him.

Then The Eagles, well Shady McCoy is having a pretty good year, he is putting up numbers on almost every team.

Next it was The Giants, Defense held them to if not less than 100 it was close.

The real "collapse", didn't come until The Vikings, then the absolute disaster at Detroit.

That would be game 4 and 5 of the 5 games in a 25 day stretch.

I would post numbers, but if I did, the doom and gloom club would accuse me of "statistical masturbation" so I would ask you to go ahead and look up the actual numbers.

Many variables went in to the "collapse", Rodgers was just one, but probably the one with the most effect.

Isn't it peculiar how The Run Defense has seemed to get better( less than 100 yds against Atlanta, around 135 yds against Dallas), when the offense under Matt Flynn finally started to click and The Packers controlled the ball and scored.

Doesn't matter how good or bad the defense has been up until now, what matters is THE NEXT 2 GAMES.

The 2013 season will not be defined untill it is over.

uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
Zero2Cool: Precisely what I thought.
uffda udfa: Nah, that's okay. I already asked.
Zero2Cool: If you want your name changed, you need to send me a PM with the name change. Thank you.
