I have sure enjoyed watching Mike McCarthy coaching this team the past few yeas but I ask this today. What the hell is going on out there? Penalties galore, a middle linebacker who can't stay home, bad tackling, lack of execution on offense......thisjust isn't typical of Mike's teams. What's going wrong?

I was thinkin' the same thing. Especially with your guys' offensive line. They are underplaying something fierce.

BTW, Jolly and Kampman were all over Gus again. Even though you guys are down ATM, I don't see the score staying the same.

There is no excuse at the professional level for the miss tackles and not knowing your assignments. It's one thing to be outplayed, but there should be no reason to be outcoached, especially by Childress. He may be the worst coach in the league.

This is the first game in which the Packers offensive really did absolutely nothing and proved that they're overrated.

Pinning the game on Rodgers isn't fair. Frerotte clearly could've lost the Packers the game. Rodgers holds the ball for too long, and I'd definitely agree with that motion--but Roethlisberger holds the ball for a lot longer and he doesn't get that knock on him.

I'm not one to criticize play-calling very often, but it was very weird today. Facing a fierce pass rush, they kept calling slow-developing pass plays. How about some screens, draws, slants, ANYTHING to make the defense think twice about an all-out pass rush. For the first time, I am really starting to have doubts about McCarthy. Just a terrible game today against a mediocre Vikings team that also deserved to lose, and should have.

I'll give it to you.. they should have lost.. But not because they are mediocre. Because they have some serious coaching issues.

Their defense played lights out. Not sure if that's GB's o-line's fault or what.

When Minnesota get's an offensive coordinator that has a brain, you'll see what I'm talking about.

Brad Childress didn't out coach McCarthy. He's still a poor coach even after this game. McCarthy just coached a bad game. By far the worse since he's been the coach of this team. I would say both coaches didn't know what the heck they were doing until the final drive when the Vikings just gave it to Adrian Peterson.

2nd and 3 and you run, but McCarthy throws. 3rd and 3 and he thrown again. He played for a long field goal when he didn't have too. He could have went down the field instead of playing to basically win the game with a 52+ yard field goal. That miss was on McCarthy and not Crosby.

I would say Leslie Frazier's gameplan to stop the Packers and Adrian Peterson is what won the game.

That challenge at the end was stupid.
If you win it, the Vikings get to run the clock down to nothing, and they probably score anyway.
But i think Mike McCarthy KNEW his offense couldn't win the game for him, so he was desperate.
Our o-line stinks.....period. We won't win anymore games with that bunch out there. They suck.
We SHOULD have had some shots downfield, except that Rodgers never had any time. It's hard to throw when you are on your back every play.

I don't have to much to be critical but often penalties reflect focus which often comes from the coach. Just need to bear down and we'll be alright

Absolutely, If I was Rodgers I'd been in the face of every single O-lineman on that team. This Loss is firmly on their shoulders. Disgusting!

beast (34m) : I'm not sure if it's still true, but it used to be hard to get sacks on Eli because he'd toss one up when linemen got semi-close (which lead
Zero2Cool (1h) : Slam Eli a lot very early. Once rattled he can't regain composure.
beast (1h) : since slot WRs might be the Packers strength depth/talent wise
beast (1h) : With AR's passing % down field so low, I've been saying they should go with short passes like the Pats used to do, especially since slot WRs
beast (1h) : What's going to be needed against the Giants is OL and DBs (IMO)
Smokey (21h) : Cook(TE) has time to heal, but may not be needed against NYG on Oct 9th .
Zero2Cool (27-Sep) : . Aaron Rodgers has a completion percentage of 33.3 on 10+ air yard passes this season (tied for the lowest in NFL).
