Gut Reactions: Packers out-coached, out-hit and out-hearted

Aaron gives his gut reactions to the Packers loss to the Jets. 

 

  • Another week of watching LaFleur and Barry get out-coached. 
  • Worse than that, the Packers looked like a team with absolutely no heart.
  • The lack of energy and purpose from the Packers today was alarming. 
  • The offensive line played like blocking was a suggestion more than a job requirement. 
  • That said, they held up much better in the second half. 
  • Which gave Rodgers plenty of time to hold the ball and ignore the checkdown until it was too late. 
  • Speaking of the $50 million man, he still has flashes, like the play where he escaped instant pressure and delivered a strike to Tonyan on the sideline while getting hit. But those flashes are few and far between.
  • Mostly, Rodgers just looked old. 
  • Can't believe we saw special team block up a punt, get nothing from it on offense then give up a blocked punt of their own to give up seven. Truly magical. 
  • Shout out to the defense for one decent half of football. 
  • The defense couldn't get off a block in the second half and couldn't tackle. Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?
  • Matt LaFleur has lost consecutive regular season games for the first time. 
  • Going to be a fun week.

This team sucks. Time to call the fat lady from her warm up room and look towards 2023. Bench Aaron Rodgers and hope he does us a massive solid and retires. Or, perhaps someone will swoop in and give us SOMETHING for him? I'd take a 5th right now. Seriously.

Many of us here (more than on other sites) were excoriating the Packers for not moving on. The real head scratcher was those who thought we should go all in to try and out score teams like it was 2011.

The entire GB FO, Mark Murphy and coaching staff should be fired for looking to the past and bringing back 12. Instead of having some balls, looking to the future, and trading him in the offseason.

I'm not looking forward to watching the 80s Packers again, but that looks like a distinct possibility right now.

Time for some changes, indeed, but whatever we do, let's not give up on this season.
We're still 3-3, with 11 games left, and with a lot of talent -- so let's still shoot for the playoffs, whoever is playing, whoever is coaching.
Urgency, but no panic!

Have you seen the Packers' schedule? They still have to play the Bills, Cowboys, Eagles and Dolphines. They barely beat the Pats and have lost to the Giants and Jets ugly. Yes, time to pack it in.

Well, this will get the job done. The only question is whether the organization will fight or just let it play out with LaFleur.

This is a very expensive transition year as it has turned out. We would not be materially worse with Love at this point. Regardless of whether and to what extent Rodgers may be part of the problem or a victim of it, that’s just a bad deal.

This coaching staff is failing from the top down. The one good thing is that LaFleur has been unequivocally exposed as having nothing to bring to the table. That’s a very expensive (now and in future) dose of reality Murphy will close his eyes to.

I expected more of the same on O. I got that in spades. It started when they again. Left Toure inactive and went with the conservative option of Winfree. It continued in the non use of Jones and even Cobb in the first half. We saw vanilla formations, minimal receiver routes and then wonder why they are covered. I’m not going to go on, it’s just evidence that there’s no grasp of the problem. We don’t help our OL, a mess from left to right, we instead invite it to be attacked …

Fire LaFleur: he’s got no strategy and has no idea how to proceed. Alternatively, just watch the inevitable slide into irrelevance and rancor.

Have you seen how defenses have played Rodgers in the past couple years? They don’t respect him. And if DCs don’t respect him, would GMs really offer “massive draft capital” in return for his services? What the Seahorks got from Denver for another overrated QB isn’t necessarily what the Packers would have received. Rodgers is older and likes his time away from the gridiron. He is not a guy like Brady. who lives, eats and breathes football 24/7/365.

All that is to say it’s possible they got lowballed for Rodgers and felt that they were stuck with him.

An interior O-line that is bad, not one receiver that can beat man coverage, an aging QB1 that looks old, and a defense that can't hold an edge and can't tackle a running back. And then we can talk about the coaching staff......

It is going to be a long season Bearmeat. Gute definitely should have taken Denver's offer for Rodgers.........

A bit irrational... Packers been great many years. No GM is going to pass on a quarterback that won the MVP 2 years in a row. Roger's still out played Brady 2 years ago. The weather ruined the championship game last year. Few more lucky bounces in Packers favor they be in the superbowls. Packers had to go in this season w Rogers. NFC is still wide open.

I've been a fan of this team for 22 years. I've seen some all around bad teams. This is one of the most pathetic. Rodgers is lost and playing his own game out there while the rest of the offense is left to pick up the pieces. The defense is only able to function for 30 minutes at a time. The special teams are still a disaster. I've seen teams with struggling offenses. I've seen teams with Struggling defenses. When you don't have any functional part of your team with multiple All-Pro and pro bowl players on both sides of the ball, something is seriously wrong. It's not losing. It's the lack of heart. It's the lack of effort. They're all just running through the motions. THAT'S what makes it hard.

The packers teams of the last 30 years have all been above average teams save for the 4-12 team and the year Rodgers decided to rebel against any attempts of MM coaching him.

This team has all the heart of their QB right now. They're fierce when they're winning, and sulk and point fingers when they face real adversity.

What's wrong is Rodgers. Your mileage may vary. He's been a cancer since 2016.

He is a coach who has never won a game Rodgers wouldn’t have. Out coached again. He has no strategy for the rookies we are now just playing Lazard ball. Bankrupt. As long as LaFleur is here it will not improve. It’s team wide under performance by coaches and most players and a QB still refusing to face reality.

Just listening to him, he’s got no answers or ideas and no control.

You nailed it once again my friend an amazing display of uninspired play coaching,effort. You name it. Pure garbage

Just kills me how stupid they are each week. Even before Cobb went down, weeks ago they should have brought up and played Toure. But No, they finally make a token effort activating Winfrey this week and don't even play him at all really after Cobb exits with an injury!

There is no plan and it is galling to hear Rodgers cite Winfree's training camp performances while ignoring that the best was Toure and Doubs as well, is mind boggling bs. I simply can not stomach his or MLFs drivel any longer.

It's still too early to throw in the towel, but this ship looks like it's sinking and I just don't see any indication that they have the ability to right any of this anymore than I have faith that they ability to manage an entire game, all four quarters.

I no longer can take them seriously without first seeing a seismic shift and attitude adjustment on the field, I don't see that coming anytime soon either and probably not even this year. Yeah there may be a season ending flourish, but that too in the end, will be a mirage. Rebuild. From Murphy on down, but keep Gute and Bisaccia.

Are we in total blow up mode, starting from all management on down? I don't want to be an over reaction type, but, without any elite receivers, and the way the rest of the team is playing, is this going to get any better?

"Packers should have traded Rodgers after back to back MVP seasons. "

As Bearmeat, Coldworld and others would say: "No shit." An absolutely abysmal display of fiduciary responsibility by Murphy. He shouldn't only be fired, he should be fired, stripped of any pension, tarred, feathered, and run out of Green Bay - hell, out of Wisconsin - on a rail. His tenure with the team should be reduced to a "We don't talk about this asshole becuase he fucked over the team for at least five years." plaque in the Packers HOF.

And abso-fucking-lutely nothing will bad will happen to him. Failure without consequences; a hallmark of modern executive life.

Murphy caused the wastage of the late teens allowing Ball to try out for GM during TTs decline. That should have got him fired. He then “saved the day” by hiring LaFleur single handed and messing with the Harlen/Wolf structure. Yes. He should be fired, as he should have been before, but since he controls Board nomination, fat chance.

It seems clear we need to move Jenkins to guard, especially as he's not likely to fully recover from his surgery until next season.
It seems clear Nijman should be starting as a blocker somewhere on the offensive line.
Let's start there, build off of that, and see if we can't get a consistent set of starters blocking for the Packers offense for the rest of the season.
We can still make the playoffs!

Maybe. Or, perhaps, they could get an RG that actually can play and not leave Jenkins up to block the ends AND the tackles when they inevitably run through #70 and #62. I don't know if Nijman would be a better RT than Jenkins, but I know one thing. You can't play RG much worse than the two aforementioned. Give Tom his chance.

Butkus looks like a disaster. Not one OL was good. Part of that is the risible threat from our passing game, but they aren’t playing well or as a unit.

Stenavich appears to be no more impress as an OC. The coaches are looking like a sub par group in the image of their leader.

It’s just time to stop it. The rot is deep. Continue with Rodgers or not, but LaFleur should be gone before next week if there is to be any hope of turning this around. Honestly I think the coaching staff is largely too diluted, but it’s worth a try. It starts with recognizing that we need a whole new attitude on O. Rodgers can chose to get on board or not, but it’s a move that is desperately needed.

Personally,from what i’ve seen…Rodgers was reluctant to be coached…then he was receptive and plays got more creative…then he wants more say in matters which is dumb. I couldn’t tell the difference between this offense and McCarthys today. That tells me Rodgers has too much imput and LaFluer caved in to a player. Bringing in an aging Randell Cobb who McCarthy used as a running back for too many hrs with his body used and abused was all Arron’s decision and a terrible idea.
Obviously Doubs, Toury can run routes….they did it all pre season Your telling me Amari Rodgers isn’t capable of running a reverse or having some backfield plays??? But Arron is having none of that shit and wants it his way and only throw to his guys instead of following a playbook. And for the first 3 yrs the playbook was good. Now,He’s over throwing deep balls, throwing low or just out of a receivers reach. The hallucination Tea clearly didn’t help him.
Think about it…LaFluer likes to run the ball and has good run schemes and misdirection but what we are seeing is totally different than the first few yrs. Which tells me AR has too much to say about the playbook. But either way, LaFluer has lost control of his QB. And that’s on him.
Realistically, I don’t think any teams put in an offer for Rodgers… cause they know they get a toxic, self absorbed player who can’t take coaching. He’s too absorbed in the past . His on the field antics with the new WRs doesn’t set an example and does nothing for their confidence. I liked him for a long time, but now after the “immunization “ BS, the eye rolls on the new kids starting out, the lack of energy and the hallucinating tea instead of getting to know his new WRs and setting an example….I’m done with AR. If I was the coach I would have made him play the preseason.Even if they start winning i’m done and mentally checked out with him.

With all their injuries, this segmented squad has never been in synch and Rodgers missed a couple of practices. Rhyan was drafted to be a bruiser inside ,but has not been sniffed. Some of the deadwood should be moved by the trade deadline. I do not see Leadership.

I’m more and more concerned about Myers. He’s been bad two weeks in a row. Runyon is a weak link in the run game this year for some reason, but he’s good in pass pro mostly. I’m not sure I’d not move Jenkins to C. It’s probably the 3rd most important position. I have grave doubts about Tom’s strength at G, but at this point I’d say try it. Nijman has to be playing. He’s been our best OL this year when starting.

I called it last week as the end of the MLF/AR era. MLF is not a good coach. He was good enough when he had better coaches under him and better players. But he just continually fails to get his team ready and almost always to play under their potential even when they won.

AR showed his age a few years ago (when they drafted Love) but then pulled himself out of it. I'm doubtful he could do it again and he doesn't have the players to help him. Give the Jets credit too but it is ridiculous how Packers could not come up with some plays to make things happen. Blame the O line, AR finger injury, whatever. Offense showed nothing today except for like 3 plays. Pretty pathetic. At least the D showed up for half the game.

In hindsight, of course, we should have traded AR but this kind of drop off in play by the team is all on MLF.

My gut reaction: 🤢🤮🤢🤮

It is no longer just a thing or two wrong with the team Last year it was special teams and defense. Instead of getting better where we were weak we just added Offensive line, receivers, coaching and overall offense to the fire. Time to admit where we are at and start working on a true REBUILD.

Problem is, do we have faith in Gute at this point? He insisted Receivers were fine. They are NOT. He predicted Defense is solid. They are NOT. He used multiple assets on the O line. They stunk up the joint today. Lots of problems. Very few answers. Long season ahead.

It’s definitely been better than it was when he first drafted. This year it always looked sketchy. MVS wasn’t wanted by many and Adams wanted out and we couldn’t realistically afford him (though they tried to mortgage the future with him too.

Last year was seen as the last dance encore for a reason. This year was always going to depend on working with each of the rookies and Rodgers to develop a role and niche playlist that got them going. We never tried. Doubs sort of crashed the party that LaFleur and Rodgers saw as being for Cobb, Lazard and Watkins. This is where that kind of hubris gets a team.

I did see your Response and except for MVS none seemed or played that good. So in all these picks only one turned out good means something has to be wrong in terms of our Scouting team. After that 2018 season he drafted only one receiver till this year even when we clearly lacked a wr2 for all these years.
None of those picks are any good to be Wr2 let alone Wr1. BTW i am holding off on this years draft so far Doubs looking good and Watson being injured alot isn't helping much.

Agreed. LaFleur’s incompetence has led to a light weight coaching staff just as much as his tactical naivety has been repeatedly exposed.

As to Gute, this team may be good in a couple of years. To be good this year, incorporating rookies was obviously essential from day one of the off season if we were to have a chance. We did nothing, and play as if we were the team last year.

This isn’t the first game, it’s just accelerating as teams figure out they can have their way with our O. Thus won’t stop with this coach. We could be a lot better with this roster. At this point, the only hope is a swift and decisive change at the top.

Good news for you PackfanNY along with me and all the other Pack fans in the area. The team has played their way off any discretionary national broadcasts. We have finished our two NY games. So we have just a few, I hope maybe as few as two, games when we might have this god awful football team broadcast in our area.
They are so soft. Soft like McCarthy team soft. The O got punched in the mouth the first two drives and cowered from there on out. The D got punched in the mouth early in the 3rd quarter and waved the white flag.

A week ago I told you I was more concerned about offense than defense. I'm still standing on that sentiment. The good news is, al the offense needs to get a bump in output is a QB who is willing to execute the offense and quit worrying about the names on the jerseys. Throw the ball to the open WR in progression.

I see nothing that tells me what they are doing other doing the same things all the time that don't work. Seem to have offensive plays that don't ever change and are easily anticipated by the other teams. The defense seems to have only 2 or 3 players who know what they are doing and generally most of the defense doesn't speak the same language. Cause-players? Coaches? Front Office?

For these of us here on CHTV, they are who we thought they were. No premiere wide receiver, and now Cobb looks to be gone too. The offensive line looked....offensive. they looked slow, confused, and seem unable or unwilling to block anything. The defense again is gassed by the second half yet again, and once again there was no stopping the run. Then there is AR, who keep dropping back to throw deep to a wide receiver who doesnt exist. He looks older, slower, and the more hits he takes, the worse its going to get The coaching staff should be embarrassed by the past two efforts, and I dont want to scare anyone, they have three straight road games, and could very well be 3-6 when McCarthy and the cowboys come to town. The next three games will tell how much heart this club has. GO PACK!!

There are a lot of people who are struggling to grasp that this is broader than a bad OL or a poor game plan or just a bad game. They don’t want to see that it’s actually just a logical extension of what’s been going on or they don’t want to give up on the season or the Rodgers era. It’s going to be vituperative, just as the Favre transition was, even though this is as much about the coaching and the decision to run with this roster and Rodgers without ensuring that he was on board with a concrete plan to make it work (impossible because LaFleur clearly didn’t see the need for one either). Thus organization has bought into its own hype for too long.

LaFleur is in over his head. It showed in the playoffs and it's now showing again. He doesn't have the Rodgers/Adams connection to bail him out any longer. Wasn't his MO about designing plays to get wide receivers open? Our best option is that Aaron gets hurt and is out for the year, then let Love play and then we can see what we have in him. This year is deep at quarterback.

Hey EDP, I agree with 89Chewy.

Rodgers sustaining a career-ending injury sooner than later would be the best scenario for the long-term future of the Packers.

I don't wish it upon him, but if it happened this sunday, it'd be the best thing for the Packers in my opinion.

I don't see the Packers getting to another SB with Rodgers under center, and Love is an unknown commodity unless we get to see him play meaningful games for a duration.

Rodgers goes down, the Packers are free to play Love and see what they've got, then make an informed decision on his contract moving forward, while they also get to free themselves of an expensive, divisive aging QB and finally create cap space to advance the team roster.

It's the best case scenario for the Packers. Otherwise, they'll never bench Rodgers, we'll never get to SB with him at the helm, and we'll always be cash strapped and watching young talent walk in FA.

If they weren't motivated enough this week what makes anyone think they will be more motivated next week. I know that ML would never bench AR but in this game when the OL could not protect why not try Love with younger legs and more mobile to beat the rush.

We're still 3-3 with a lot of games left and a lot of talent.
It's not a matter of can the Packers win, but whether they really want to.
Are they willing to change the status quo in any meaningful way?

newman and jenkins looked mentally challenged. the one play where jenkins blocked the corner and let vinny curry walk thru on his inside. peewee football says you block the inside rusher. zach tom has to play, or nijman, or both. the ol made it seem like the jets invented stunts.

I wonder if Stnovich moving up to OC from Oline coach has hurt the Oline. Sure seems to have. And at the same time Stnovich not being as good as Hackett at scheming also seems to be a big problem. Poorly considered coaching hires by MLF. He really is in the hot seat now as a head coach unlike he has ever been. Let's see if he is tough enough to show this team what toughness looks like.

The Jets are a tough, physical, hard-hitting team. The Packers? Definitely not enough in this game....Gary had a couple of nice plays, ditto for Jaire, and Enagbare got his first sack.

The Jets played like a young, hungry team; the Packers played like an old veteran team that has lost too many times in the playoffs.

Stop the Packers running game and you stop the Packers offense. The Jets DL and LBs did a great job. Our offensive line was downright pukey, and I believe that was a Jenkins penalty that cost us a big A. Jones gain in the first half.

Flashbacks of last season with the blocked kick and punt....but we got one of our own with Wilson. Bisaccia may want to keep going for those blocks, because we're going to need them the way our offense is playing.

Need more receiving options badly! That was even before Cobb left.

If a team is a reflection of its coaching staff, well, this is what you get.

Gute went 0-5 on his OL expectations:

1. Thought Bakh would return and be good. Wrong.
2. Thought Jenkins would return & be good. Wrong.
3. Thought Myers would make a 2nd year jump. Wrong.
4. Thought Newman would make a 2nd year jump. Wrong.
5. Thought Runyan would be a solid RG. Wrong.

GMs have drafted 3rd round OL who played well right away.
GMs have drafted 4th round OL who played well right away.
Rare to get a 7th rounder to play well as a rookie, but it has happened.

0-8.

I should add that Gute's expectations might still turn out to be correct and might still even come in time to salvage this season. I'd be more optimistic if GB were 4-2, but it is still very possible to make the playoffs. I see the Giants beat the Ravens to get to 5-1.

Who are the star receivers for the Giants?
Maybe we should be looking at the guy throwing the passes more than the guys trying to catch them.

Agree Dobber except that the guy throwing the passes looks like he is getting pounded every time he drops back to pass. Our OL looks like the guys who are disinterested in blocking anybody whether it's a run or a pass.

Thanks, Since '61

Don’t know possibly. It’s also possible that they do but don’t want to accept it. If I had to guess I’d say Rodgers is the latter, LaFleur the former.

Don’t want to accept it? Not following? Are you still talking about the OL? I did not get the game so had to listen to it but watched the condensed afterwards. On many plays, there were multiple OL standing around looking for someone to block after the DL had whizzed by them already. Even Bahk on a couple plays. They just didn’t get off their initial block quick enough or at all to pick up the defender running past. But on a few plays they just got whipped too. Almost as if not knowing how to block.

I'd probably get the ball out of my hands in under 3 seconds if I couldn't count on the OL.

It's amazing how smoothly this offense has operated when the QB gets the ball out on time.

Yeah, it's really that simple.

What happened to the same guy these last 3 seasons. Jones has been playing good only when he got some good OL protection. Our oline is a mess as a result we are struggling.

He did come up with Nijman. Of course the coaches can’t find a way to get him on the field at present. I have to say that I’m becoming extremely dubious about Butkus and I don’t see what Stenavich is bringing as OC.

The team did pretty well in 2021 with the same (actually less) talent on the OL with the lone exception being Billy Turner.

I don't think Bakh is playing poorly, just not at up to Bakh standards yet.
I do agree that Jenkins is rough. I don't think playing him on the edge is helping him at all. That's a poor decision by the line coach IMO.

What this team needs to do is find a competent RT (either internally or brought in), move Jenkins back to LG (that should create a stable blind side), and see how Newman responds when a better RT is boxing him in. Should Newman still struggle, put Runyon or someone else at RG.

Packers have no oline until they put nijman at right tackle and Jenkins at left guard. Can’t block and it’s obvious. Defense is being coached the same way capers coached soft and zone every play. No creativity with the defense and stop zoning very play or the rush defense may break capers record of most rushing yards in a single season. Plus you need a deep threat/ elite receiver. When you have that you won’t see 8 in the box every play. If your not gonna bring an elite receiver in then better fix your oline and be able to run the ball with 8 in the box. It’s only gonna get worse when you play the cowboys defense or the bills. It’s not a lost season yet but if you don’t actually bring in a free agent or change your personnel you have right now it will be. Don’t want to see Royce Newman play another down again and Jenkins at tackle when he just got back from an acl injury sooner then most for his size.

Looking at the packer's opponents this yr it only going to get worse from here on. This is one of the toughest schedules we faced this season and with NFC east being the strongest and NFC north with viks leading i doubt even with 10 wins we'll make it to playoffs as we are going to see two nfc east teams in the Wild card spots. Then a big fight for the final spot.

Well insanity again with expectations. Expecting Joe Barry to adjust is just silly either let him go or stop talking about him we know the results and what they will be . Lafluer is not capable of adjusting his game plan and this has been evident since he has been hired. Either get a play caller with the ability to adjust or let's stop talking about it .

Your correct. But the zone every down is absolute insanity. When you have Alexander at corner why play zone all the time. And yes Stokes is fast but the nfl isn’t about being fast when your beat. He never follows the ball and it’s also getting old. And Savage must not understand his assignment or the coverage he’s suppose to be in cuz he always blows it. Zone isn’t working and even though it suits the weaker players the best it needs to be ditched or every team will run all over this defense.

This was the dagger in the Rodgers era. No word on Cobb but probably done for season/career given his reaction. QB1 looks old. No receiving corps to speak of. O-line is a sieve. D is soft. No coaching. Trade deadline coming. Time to stock up on picks. Sell off pieces, start Love and start the rebuild while hobbled by salary cap and dead money.
