All I know is Matt does not come off happy about going to London for a football game. Each interview I've listened to, he's crabby as crap, lol. It's funny. You can tell he knows he's crabby and tries to come off different and then it just comes back one sentence later.

That can get tiring and frustrating. Some people may not like flying but do it anyways for their job. So to come off crabby because the greedy NFL wants world domination by flying teams to London is underatandable. I for one couldnt do it

I think Rodgers explained it well, everyone knows players are creates of routine in preparations, well... coaches are a lot more so... and this London trip throws the routines out the window.

Also CB Douglas says the London games suck... because it's like a normal game, except an 8 hour plane ride (which LaFleur has said he's going to try to keep players awake on)... and your bodies normal routine is totally screwed up with the time differences.

I was hoping we'd hear more from TE Lewis about it ... as the Jaguars went A LOT to London, and I believe Lewis had a 3 TD game as the Jaguars shocked the Ravens one year (Ravens kept treating him as a blocker (and he is) but then they skip him out late and no one picked Lewis up... touchdown!

Any team we face will be a test the way we have been playing.
The only team we beat up was the Bears.
2 squeaker wins against beat up Tampa, and a overtime against a third string rookie QB.
Our offense has been a shell of what it was. Losing Adams and MVS has really hurt. Having rookies that don't really know what they are doing doesn't help.
Hopefully they can put it together and start playing like we know they can.

But dead serious here... their have been times when they doubled Watson as the deep route guy, and he's burned both of them... a well placed deep ball and catch could be a touch down.... now... Rodgers hasn't hit the super speedsters in stride (never learning to hit MVS in stride) and whom knows if Watson will catch it if he does... but they possible need to test it every so often and make sure both are practicing it during the week.

Also Doubs, IMO, actually looks like the next Adams.... well maybe not as much shake at the line, but once you get Doubs moving his route running and body control are darn good. Maybe I should say Nelson instead of Adams 🤔

Doubs reminds me more of Jennings. The YAC is there as well.

Watson reminds me of a faster Adams.

In theory the scheme is to limited the passing game, so they might actually do better against teams that can't run it....

But my original point was that Barry failed to adjust to other teams weakness and just kept playing his scheme...

And Patriots said, okay, we'll put 6 OL on the field and run it, and still almost no adjustments...

He has adjusted a bit in the blitzing more... but he always seems games late with his adjustments...

I doubt the Packers make a move, but I would ask them to extremely serious take a look at FA coach Vic Fangio... he's the one whom designed this season and he defensive coordinator for

49ers (2011–2014)
Bears (2015–2018)

Yes the Packers owned the Bears, but they defenses were tough as hell...

Took Collin Kapernick lead 49ers to the NFC Conference Championship game 3 years in a row... and late in the regular season, I said the 2018 Bears would make it to the Super Bowl if they could just avoid the Eagles tough linemen, and their luck it was their first playoff game and the defense held to them to 16 points but Eagles still one off the double doink FG

Also, if he doesn't get the head coaching job, Wisconsin's Jim Leonhard might be looking for another job.
