Nice to see both Neal and Perry getting to the QB, although I'm not sure why Perry has to be on the left side.
Quarless needs to show he can get deep. Took a good step forward today. If he can do that consistently, I will be satisfied.
I don't know why this team needs to spot its opponents 2 TDs before it shows up all the time. They're great at overcoming adversity, but for some reason they always have to HAVE adversity.
Frustrating to watch.
Add that screen attempt the play before the Lacy end of the half run into the WTH? category. That run will probably be the last time I wish Kuhn had the ball.
the entire 0:15 drive at the end of the first half was ridiculous. just take a knee and regroup at halftime
Yes. Please. Thank you.
McCarthy does alot of strange stuff at the end of the first half, like weird clock management that backfires to this stupid play....but dont ask him about it, he'll be pissed!!!
Really scratching my head on the last play before the half. Then when I saw Lacy come up limping I was ready to throw something. At least it doesn't look to be that bad. Another week of playing for this year rather than getting ready for next.
"Running Lacy w/0:04 left in the 1st half"
I really, really wish someone was in control of the Big Picture during games. McCarthy's play calling isn't so great that someone else can't do it. Head coach or Offensive Coordinator, pick one.
My definition of Multitasking: "Fucking everything up all at once."
The ship is burning
And the Players see it!
Most have nothing to bitch about. If it wasn't for cheap ass Ted T, many and I mean many of these guys would not be playing football period. I mean guys in the 5,6,7 round and undrafteds are there for a reason. 32 teams with GM, football anylyst, stat guys, the whole nine yards evaluate every freeekin player. the ones we get are the ones no one else wanted but they came cheap.
What round was Richard Sherman drafted in? 5th round.... I bet Seattle was happy no one else wanted him, including them since they passed on him in 4 other rounds.
So since you say the Packers are comprised of nothing but UDFA's and 5th-7th round picks, how many are on the team currently? And how many of those players are on the team due to injury to other players?
In your opinion what % of the team should be made up of 5th-UDFA's?
Oh yeah, and considering Thompson's way of doing business is such a failure, what is his winning % since coming to Green Bay as the General Manager?
Don't feed the wildlife RC. He/she is clearly just trying to get a rise out of people. Nobody says anything that astronomically stupid for real.
I just want to see if he/she can try and actually back their claim.
That is exactly what they are doing is just trying to start crap...
He and his 4 or 5 other IDs post the same nonsense every and never reply. Just ignore it.
I dont see whats so wrong about questioning TT...the fact of the matter is, HE IS CHEAP...for the most part it has worked, sometimes it hasn't...like the dude we just cut...4th round?? No one else in football had him even going in the draft....there would be no reason for forums or comments sections if all everybody did was toe the company line....rah rah rah, sis boom bah, nice play calling Mike, especially at the end of the half...woops, sorry about the sarcasm, please forgive me....hahahaha...
Billy, don't know where you get your draft info but Mel Kiper Jr. said during the pick he thought McMillan could have went in the 2nd round.
His winning % is good because of one draft pick! Figure it out.
"What round was Richard Sherman drafted in? 5th round"
Yep... 1 round after the Pack snagged House.
Willie Wood was passed on like 17 times and Bart Starr 16 times both in Canton! Wait you don't know enough about football to know that place do you? Its the Pro Football Hall of Fame! Makes you wonder doesn't it...
Raji wants out
There was a play near the end of the game where I thought he was close to getting a game killing personal foul
Oh Please we can't possbly hope he leaves. I think Ross wanted out too. Funny he can't do a thing wrong in Detroit. Whenever the ball was kicked to him in GB he fumbled it, now he runs it back for touchdowns. Probably saw handwriting on wall, hey if you just want to use me to return kicks and not play dback, screw everybody I'll take my talent elsewhere.
Anyways the play calling again was conservative in, I'm not sure if you can pass so lets just run run run.
Really? Dback? He was a receiver Einstein. Get your facts straight and quit whining. They won the dam game even with a fluke int pick 6.
Your so ignorant it astonishes! Thsnks for proving your just a troll!
That should read...
"YOU'RE so ignorant..."
No big deal.
We knew what you meant.
Ross proves how lousy the jackass special teams coach is.
If we dont replace Campen, Slowcum and Capers, Expect the same results!
Can someone erase the trolling?
I thought Richardson played well.
Burnett is beyond a disappointment.
And how about the halftime adjustments on D? (can't believe I just said that)
I had lost all faith and they just restored it.
Are you guys that fucking dumb!
They are in denial and completely believe if the Pack win out they go to the playoffs. They should look at the boards and see that ain't happening. Season is over.
Last yr 51 sacks, a record in the NFL, on a guy they call Rodgers, who is a injured QB for Green Bay Packers whith a collorbone injury at this moment!
And your ok with that? Really?
Somebody's got poop in the pants.
Here's a hint bro: Saying things like: The Ship is burning and the players see it - after a win that was not easy...
That just might be considered... trolling. Especially since you took 4 posts to say what could be done in 1.
Heres a hint Bro. threw your rose colored glasses, If you think this team is going anywhere, PLEASE enlighten me! TROLL
Easy there, Deputy dawg. Your improper sentence structure, incorrect word usage, and complete disregard of grammatical rules is going to confuse people!
For instance you typed "TROLL" when clearly you meant to type "SKOL".
51 sacks is not a record in the NFL.
Hey, you have to learn, to some people no one on the Packers staff or roster can do no wrong....and if your at all critical you are trolling....
- A great win. Showed grit. Given the weather, Matt Flynn could have been in the "good" category. Despite his two turnovers.
- Running Lacy on a give away play is just beyond stupid. I dare someone to defend that one. MM - what in the hell are you thinking? Why risk injury to such an important piece to our team on a give away play? Stupid.
- Nice to see Quarless show up. He played great.
- Jordy Nelson is a great WR no matter who is at QB.
- When healthy, Nick Perry can be a factor in the pass rushing department.
- It kills my soul to watch Morgan Burnett. Overpaid. Huge bust. He is amazing in that when he commits he doesn't do it fully to be a factor on the play. And when he doesn't (a la TD to Gonzalez) he does so in a way where he still gets himself out of position. The worst of both worlds. The opposite of what great safeties do.
- It would kill my soul further to watch MD Jennings, but the guy is so unbelievably absent from every play, I am barely sure if he is ever on the field. Luckily, his snaps were greatly reduced today. Nice to see Richardson out there.
- BJ Raji is worth 8 million a year? Once again, fat, soft and blubbery got pushed around to the point of invisible. Is home boy mailing it in?
- Only our defense could make Stephen Jackson look like the 2006 version of himself. Guy has been non-existent.....until he plays GB. Naturally.
- A win is a win and if we get into the playoffs, Aaron Rodgers can beat anyone at anytime in any place.
Right on! Everything you said was 100% correct
Dawg it figures you would be obsessed with a bone. Get it?? Dog? Bone?
No intelligent 'objective' (big word for you) Packer fan ignores what's missing on this team (lack of offensive line depth, weak safeties and middle linebackers), but we also have a perspective that puts shortcomings into context: injuries, salary cap ramifications, low draft positioning based on WINNING A LOT,the statistically normal human shortcomings of our GM, and shit luck (good or bad).
You trolls however, are like the damn "Doomsday Preppers". YOU WILL NEVER BE SATISFIED BECAUSE YOUR LIFE SUCKS.
Can you please just go be a fan of whatever team you think does it right and wins the Superbowl every year????
That team is ______. Weird,,,the Pack has more championships than anyone.
You are hereby excluded from Packer Valhalla.
Have a nice day.
I'm not sure why the dawg is being called a troll? All he said was that "the ship is burning and the players see it."
Just because the Packers got the win doesn't mean that everything in Titletown is now peachy. They could have easily lost. It would not have surprised any of us if Matt Ryan would have lead the Falcons down to kick the game winning FG.
Winning covers up a lot.
BRAVO!!! Clay, These whining trolls suck! They never have anything positive to say. Wish they would just stay in their parents basements, play x box, and cheer on which ever team happens to be winning at the moment.
Now who's the Troll? I've never said anything about you. Of course, I'm above that. I think I'll go eat my steak & sweet potato, drink my two hearted ale and then catch up on some paperwork after I'm done typing this.
When you open your eyes and see the reality of the situation, then come talk to me. The Packers have been in a slow decline since their epic loss in playoffs to the 2011 Giants.
But yeah, you're probably right, #12 will fix a lot of problems. He can win any game and keep the Packers relevant. However, I watched #4 have a great career surrounded by poor coaching, poor FA signings and only one SuperBowl. I'm hoping that isn't the fate of #12.
Sorry but if you disagree with me that is fine but I ask that you do not insult me. That makes you the Troll.
But i agree with the lack of!
Johnny Jolly - Fumble recovery. Big stuff on third down leading to missed field goal by ATL.
Mike Neal - Forced fumble.
Very valuable two yard loss as it turns out. Almost like a turnover.
ha, That was awesome, Jolly is a Keeper
Burnett isn't playing well, and suddenly every single Packer fan in the world forgets how well he has played in the past.
He is now overpaid and a bust...period...the end...can never get back on the track he was on when he EARNED the contract he signed.
Agreed. If Crosby can turn it around from the turd that he produced last year, so can Burnett. (That being said, with the overall quality of our safety play, it does make me wonder how good the coaching is back there.)
They all said the same thing about Ross, now they call the entire coaching staff dumb for letting him go. Losers.
Your right, Neal can be disrup6tive!
Strong mother chucker, it will only get better!
Wait till next yr!
He's just waitin to break out!
along with a bunch of other "developing" players...hope it comes true...seems to take a long time for some of these draft choices to develop in Green Bay, must be the water..
And so are we
Dawg, have you been kickin back with grampa's old cough medicine?
Nothing better then a good 'Dumb and Dumber' reference... Great movie btw...
For sure...right after Wisconsin legalizes the cannabis...CHTV posters shall break out to the next level..and finally win a sport's blog Pulitzer. Until then...the posts will continue to be too heavily slanted toward the high blood alcohol comment.
We still have a shot if Rodgers comes back this week at Dallas. I can't see this team beating Dallas in TX without Rodgers. I'm not sure why Burnett has slipped so badly and he needs to turn things around. Raji can leave anytime as fas I am concerned. If TT pays him $8MM to stay then maybe it's time for TT to go too. Much rather spend the $8MM on a decent FA than keep that toad Raji around.
I'd like to give an honorary "good" to Mason Crosby. Had a perfect game in ugly weather, one mistake from him on sunday would have ended Green Bay's season
I had him in there Matt, but took him out for Quarless. As I said in Gut Reactions, his kicks were huge.
I read somewhere that yesterday he set an NFL record for most points in a player's first 7 seasons...can't find confirmation anywhere, though.
EDIT: Here it is: http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/8447/
That's awesome. Good for Mason.
Talk about turning it around.
On a day where Bryant from the Falcons, who is considered one of if not the best kicker, missed his attempt which was the difference in the final score.
I would have to add Johnny Jolly. The D just seems so much better when he is playing well. Dude had a huge TFL just before that 52 yard FG attempt that only fell 2-3 yards short. Also had the fumble recovery. I just wish he could play more snaps.
Agreed. Jolly and Bush showed the vet leadership that I think is lacking. I hope their effort sparks some inspired play by others.
I would like to add coaching to the good.
I don't know what was done at halftime, but adjustments were made. The team that came to play in the 2nd half looked like a different team that came out to play in the first half.
That's not allowed here.
Might not have been any adjustments that mattered.
Atlanta is a team from Deep South that plays in a dome and was eliminated from playoffs before they stepped on frozen tundra for a road game. They went to locker room at halftime and warmed up and all they could think about was getting on nice warm plane for ride home.
I was born and raised in Wisconsin and have lived in Deep South for last 10 years. Wisconsin in winter now feels like insanity and I can't wait to get home and warm my bones. If you haven't acclimated yourself to those winter temps, it's an extremely unpleasant experience and apathy towards "work" can easily set in. Whatever adrenaline falcons had in first half to keep them warm wasn't there in second half for road game in arctic circle.
Who is on #TeamQuarless?
Ahh, another forum where criticism is frowned upon and called Trolling....hey, i bet ive been to more Packer games, spent more money at Lambeau, been a fan longer, proudly wear my Packer "stuff" win or loose, but goddam if i want to be critical i will, go ahead be a TT lapdog, lick his neck...but dont tell me what to write....
Billy, if you were a true fan you would not be ripping on the greatest GM in Packers history. The guy has turned this team into a fucking powerhouse year in and year out and his philosophy to building a team is the envy of the league. How dare you!!
Hold on Longsharks...greastest gm? Ron wolf remade the packers and brought some of the best players to ever play to green bay. TT is a very good gm, but lets not get ahead of ourselves
gman, yeah I know what Ron Wolf did. It is my professional opinion that how TT does things is much more difficult than what Ron Wolf did.
Ron Wolf when he was hired was given an open checkbook for the first time in Packers history and given free reign to sign whoever he wanted and he did just that. Ron had nothing to lose so he gambled on Favre and won. He signed many high priced free agents and it worked. Mike Sherman did the same and it didn't work.
Ron won a championship but didn't build the team for the long term. TT is in a different situation. He could do what Wolf did but they would end up in salary cap hell very shortly and would have to hit rock bottom at some point.
TT's "draft and develop" philosophy enables him to maintain success year in and year out for the LONG term as long as he has an elite quarterback.
As a man who witnessed the 70's and 80's, I enjoy winning every year with the hope of making the playoffs. You have no idea how great this run has been. This is why I have a mini statue of Ted Thompson in my man cave. Everytime the Packers score I salute that statue and say "thank you Ted!!".
While I'm a little disturbed by the image of you "saluting Ted Thompson" I agree w/ your point wholeheartedly!
Stroh, I know it's disturbing but it's true. I do have a mini statue. That's how much I worship this man. You grew up in that same time period Stroh referring to the 70's and 80's.
You know first hand how bad it was for over 20 fucking years of being the laughing stock of the NFL. These younger punks have no clue how good they have it only knowing Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers as their qb's.
That's why I can always tell how old people are by how hard they fight in defense of our legendary G.M.. You Stroh are one of them and I also commend you.
I am proposing building a statue of Ted Thompson the size of the statue of Liberty next to Lambeau so when people fly into Green Bay they will never forget who the man was that put us back on top. Of course it will probably never happen but that is my dream. Ted deserves this for all he has done damnit!!
I see what you're saying about TT but also got lucky with drafting Aaron Rodgers. I think the dd process does work but TT has missed on many of his picks-like all GMs. The winning formula is a mix of signing FA and DD. I like TT but I'm not ready to erect any statues just yet. The winning of a superbowl allowed everyone to give a pass to MM and TT. Image if Michael Vick completes the TD pass instead of being picked by T. Williams in the 2010 divisional game, or if Cutler doesnt get hurt in the NFC championship...would everyone think this team was built by the best GM or coached by the best coach? Even before the Rodgers injury I thought the team was in a semi-rebuild year and thers nothing wrong with that. However, the talent on this team doesnt even come close to that of teams that we want to be like.
I think Ron Wolf built a team to win today. Also, he built the packers when nobody wanted to come to green bay. Green bay was the where players dreaded playing. I don't think players feel like that anymore. Ron Wolf signed guys to make a run and after winning he signed eugene robinson to make another run. I don't feel like TT has built this team to win tbis year because it lacks a key component in winning...veteran leadership. Thats why I pick ron wolf ahead of TT. I hope I will change my mind real soon when the pack win another superbowl
It's the classic battle of homer vs. critic in comment section that can be witnessed in any packers forum. It's mostly homers on this forum. But most sports forums are like that.
AAAAAAAhhhhhh. With fans like this, who the hell needs enemies. Not one of them would have the guts to ask TT or MM to their faces the crap they spew in here. They must be fun to be around at work too. I work with a few assholes and they sure make the day go by slow. All they do is bitch about everything and everyone all day. I think a couple of you are my fellow workers.
Why are you here? Please stop posting non sense that is not related to the pack. Please let us have your opinion about the game/season.
Oh I've given my opinion many times. My Opinion is the Packers have one of the best GM's in the game today. My opinion is this team would have been unstoppable if not for the epidemic proportions of injuries. I'll defend the men who brought this team to the playoffs 4 straight years with a title. Could be 5, it ain't over. the trolls just come here to cause crap. Good enough?
FWIW, I completely agree! I'm sick of the panty wastes posting complete non-sense and ruining a few good comments worthy of discussion! This sucks, he suck, they suck... Its F'in annoying cuz they have no basis for it. Nothing to backup what they say just spew drippings from an orifice!
TT is a very good gm. That said, mm coaching/play calling has been questioned for the past seven seasons. DC has been questioned the past three seasons. Oline and special teams have been questioned the past 3+seasons. Why is that blashemy? Rodgers has bailed them out.
You guys seem to think that this win solves a lot of issues. The team came out flat yesterday after 10 days of rest and needing to win. They surprisingly came out after half made the right adjustments. Do you think that MM and DC usually make good mid-game adjustments? I don't (that doesn't make me a troll), just my opinion. I like to come here to comment about the staate of the packers, what I think is right/wrong with the team and what I'd like to see change (my opinions). What is commented on here is not fact nor should it be treated as such. If I wanted to keep thoughts to myself I would stay off my tablet. I like reading other ideas, comments and thoughts. Some things I dont agree with, some I do. If reading these posts causes you emotional or mental unrest then I wouldn't recommend reading or posting. Good night, go pack go
You are a troll unless you say any of these approved observations:
1. Ted Thompson is God.
2. Mike McCarthy is Jesus.
3. Dom Capers is the best D-coach ever.
4. The Packers are going to the Super Bowl.
5. The Packers lose only because the refs suck.
All other comments, no matter how rational or supported by evidence, shall be considered trolling
