I don't know what to say.

Ether McCarthy has lost his mind and can't understand how critical it is for us to run the ball and have balance.

Or Rodgers is killing runs, in which case limit his run/pass option calls.

Or Ted has F'd up and left McCarthy with a stable of RBs behind Benson that are utterly inept.

Our insistence on passing is just ludicrous now.

I get that Benson got hurt, but abandoning the run just allowed the Colts to tee off.

But running the ball doesn't help cover Wayne today.. that guy willed the Colts to a win. Incredible display of catching with the hands.

Someone did lots of research. Running the ball doesn't equal wins.

Arodge's insistence on holding the ball for 8 seconds isn't helping.

Time for him to take a seat until such time as he decides to pull his head out.

Wayne showed he still has something left in the tank.

But you get something going on offense, you keep their offense off the field. Even if you are just moving the chains, you are giving your D time to rest and have a bit of a fresher pass-rush.

Additionally, you have pressure being taken off the O-line. As well as limiting Rodgers holding the ball when he can clearly get rid of it to his receiver who has a good chance at the ball.

I've rarely questioned McCarthy as a coach, because so much of the game plays out after the play is called. But I really question what the hell he is doing with his play calling; I am not so sure that he is putting his players in the best position to make plays. That's a huge problem.

Reggie Wayne beat us. Last I checked, Reggie Wayne was a WR on the Colts, not a RB for the Packers.

Totally agree that Rodgers is part of the problem, but are you serious? You want to bench Rodgers for Harrell. For Graham f'n Harrell?!

I'd say McCarthy should emphasize more of a shorter passing game. But, frankly, I don't know if he's competent enough to know how to hold the friggin play call sheet.

27 points should win a game, if the defense shows up. Unfortunately, the Packers defense was on the field 35:16 of the game because the Packers offense couldn't sustain a drive and move the chains.

Did anyone notice whether the dominant pass coverage was zone or man this game?

The Colts had around 18/19 min TOP in 2nd half. We could not get anything going at all, let alone sustain drives. You do the latter, you can keep the other Offense off the field.
