I think it is 100% okay to call out the practice squad guys. Those are the guys that are giving you the practice and the opponent's scheme throughout the week. Maybe they are dogging it? Not only that, but Rodgers isn't placing blame everywhere else but himself. He is holding himself accountable and in being a leader, holding others accountable as well. Football is a team game...

One guy actually went as far to say practice squad isn't part of the team. That is where the convo ended...

I remember "back in the day" my coaches would always call out the 2nd stringers for dogging it while being the scout team for the 1st stringers.


Sounded to me like Mike McCarthy made the statement, then they asked Arodge about it in a radio interview. What's he supposed to say?

Ask bears fans, and they'd expect him to respond like Cutler or Urlacher would.

AR is off this year so far.
The pass early on, he had Nelson wide open, and over threw him. Last year he makes that throw. It would have been a TD.

And why don't they have anyone going over the middle, like Driver ALWAYS did? DD always made a big play on those quick throws. You have Cobb, who could do it too.

Yep. And we should have more plays with more running backs / tight end folks getting in there in the middle. Maybe just have one WR out there.

To be fair 2 of our TDs this past game were over the middle.

So Aaron Rodgers gets sacked more when not blitzed and performs better when blitzed. Think

I'll work on those letters then.

Please blitz Aaron Rodgers more often.

Honestly, I think Rodgers has more success when he's being blitzed because there's less DBs blanketing the WRs. EVERYONE has had problems getting open this year, if I were playing the packers I'd rush 4 all game long. Rushing 4 is only a problem if your DBs can't shut down the opponent's WRs for 6+ seconds.

This is what I'm wondering. Last year, Jordy and Gregorious seemed like they were open all day long. Both of them drew attention off of guys like Driver, who ended up being covered by LBs occasionally and of course, Aaron exploited those match-ups.

What the hell happened? Are our receivers no longer elite as a group?

1. Greg's not been on the field, and when he has he's been hobbled. He's not a deep threat.
2. #1 allows Jordy to attract the most attention
3. More slants. More slants.
4. More Cobb. More Cobb.

But apart from Jones for shaking the dropsies, I don't think any WR or TE is playing up to expectations this year. And Rodgers hasn't been as accurate which compounds the issue.

I don't think it's a matter of not getting open. The group of players this year aren't just insync as they were last year. That being the offense. New center, new running back, and a lot of pieces moving around like Randall Cobbs new role. We just need to gel and figure out what our identity is. We're missing Greg and not having him on the field shows up. I can't blame them for not getting open entirely. It's also on Aaron and the Offensive Line. Teams think we can't run the ball so they sit back in 2 deep safteys man under often. I still think we're an elite group with the emergance of Cobb. We just need to do different things and establish a running game so we become less predictable and keep our defense from trying to be the hero of every game.

Jones has always been a good guy for those crossing routes. With Jennings out, he has had to run other routes

For whatever reason, the rookies have not picked up what the practice tempo looks like or the importance of the scout-team looks as well as maybe it's been in the past. I don't know if Mike said that in his press conference but he definitely mentioned that in our team meeting.

There needs to be a level of professionalism that is current through the entire team from the veterans to the rookies that they kind of understand how each part of the day adds to the preparation. And I think it definitely can be improved on their standpoint from an assignment and a tempo side of practice.

Aaron Rodgers picks up the blitz better then any other QB in the league. Now the fact that Aaron Rodgers gets more sacked when his not being blitzed only surfaces other questions for me.

1- Does it mean our offensive line is that bad?
2- Does Aaron Rodgers keeps the ball longer then he needs too?
3- Are our WR's overrated and can't get open?

It could be all of the above ...

I don't think Aaron has performed at a elite level since he missed that game after he suffered the concussion. It sure appears to me that his ultra precise passes have been average at best since his injury. Also his post Favre adrenaline rush and chip on his shoulder have slowly faded.

Aaron Rodgers last missed game due to injury was 2010 Patriots game. Do you not think 45 TD's and 6 INT's while setting the NFL QB Rating record is not elite?

They went on to win the superbowl after his concussion...he really turned it on in the playoffs that year. Do you remember the Atlanta playoff game, for example? And then last year he had one of the best years a QB has ever had in the NFL.

The problem with Arodge's head is that he needs to pull it out of his ass.

1: Hit the guy when he comes open. Don't pass up open receivers hoping that someone will get open deep 8 seconds later.

2: If you're going to throw deep to a guy, hit him.
