Gut Reactions: Packers waste great defensive effort to close season

Aaron gives his gut reactions to yet another brutal playoff loss for the Packers. 

  • Just a brutal performance from Aaron Rodgers and the offense.
  • I hope Mo Drayton is renting. 
  • Losing Dillon hurt big time. 
  • What an outstanding performance from Joe Barry's defense. 
  • Kenny Clark and Rashan Gary were absolute beasts. 
  • That late fourth down stop by the defense was the last great thing this Packers team was going to do. 
  • The deep shot to Davante on 3rd down was like an homage to Brett Favre.  
  • Seriously, snow coming down, game on the line, and the quarterback looked like he wanted to be anywhere other than on the field.
  • This team has no idea how to get to a short, ryhthm passing game. And even when they do, it's just for one play and then it's back to looking deep. 
  • Was not a fan of Turner at left tackle. Put Billy or Kelly at right tackle and let Yosh, who has played well all year, play his left tackle spot. 
  • Russ Ball is on the clock. 
  • As is Aaron Rodgers. 
  • Thanks much for following along here at Cheesehead TV all season. 
  • Go Pack Go.

We lost this damn game by going away from the run/Aaron Jones. I know Dillon was hurt, but still. They showed a stat in the first half where Aaron Jones was far outgaining the 49’ers entire offense. Rodgers was the invisible man. Hate to say it, but it’s looking more and more like he just can’t get this team over the hump. And it’s all blowing up next year. Tough one to swallow. Maybe it is time for the Love era to begin. GPG!

So, here we all were sitting anxiously in our individually selected places for the Divisional Round Playoff game that would begin the quest and be confident in ending with another Championship for the Packers, its TitleTown glory, and the long awaited second SB victory of Aaron Rodgers QB career.

Regretfully, and with much sorrow, that was not to be, again. Yes, the magnificence of another Rodgers regular season play, and possible MVP, and let us not forget the 'stats' because that is what he be judged, has ended to like fashion the FIVE times in a row, though we were saved the anguish of it not happening in the NFCCG, again.

Many will find solace in the blaming of the Special Teams unit, but we know where the loss is placed. It lays upon the dynamic dual of HC and QB because the Offense after the opening possession did absolutely nothing to help an inspired Defense or offset the Special Teams errors that many believed would rear its ugly head.

Let us ask the question again, "Is it fair to judge Rodgers by Championships?" I say absolutely again and we just watched another reason why.

This game might well have sealed the deal, an Rodgers trade, during the offseason.

Keeping Rodgers and trying this again with a weaker roster would be idiotic. The era is over. Today emphasized why the road has run out.

The problem going forward is that LaFleur will be with us. I have no faith in a coach who admits to making the same mistakes 3 years running. He just doesn’t have the ability to learn and to win games when it matters. He refused to lose Drayton, pretended it would get better even when it was obviously not. Drayton is on him for hiring snd not firing at the bye.

Rebuilding with LaFleur is going to be a false dawn. He’s Sherman not Holmgren. Good system, no strategic acumen or ability to learn. Hearing him say he should pay more attention to STs was just laughable.

Gute and co will let Rodgers go and look to build a better O around the new QB. Rodgers has shown he can’t do it with what we can afford at 40 million over the cap. Sadly, LaFleur is likely back, but I predict this will be the start of his departure in retrospect.

False something, that's for sure. Why Turner at LT when he has not seen the field in over a month. Lazard should have been schemed to offset the obvious DBls on Adams. No use of the TEs to spread the LBs. The A.Jone s in space was working , stay with it. The sherman comparison is appropriate. Static, no counter-punch, in some ways, pathetic. They will try to scapegoat Drayton, but that con was already used up in the first quarter of this season.

End of an era in GB to go out like that, methinks. We lost the battle in the trenches on offense way too many times, and there were so many stupid and unforced errors on special teams and offense. 49ers were the worst match-up we could've drawn, so of course, that's exactly what we did, and we paid the price for it. Ah... Wanted a happier ending than this, but I suppose it was only predictable that this would happen instead. Damn.

Painful game to watch.

Offense was moving the ball early, but everything changed after the Lewis fumble.

Where was the creative play-calling? Misdirection and motion? SF started sitting on #17 and the offense just died....the defensive effort deserved better than that.

Get ready for the reboot....

Unfortunately, no.12 also sat on no. 17. I saw several times when Rodgers was getting sacked or missing Adams - Deguara was wide open in the middle field or sidelines. Meanwhile, the playoff wunderkind, "Randall Cobb" was targeted only once - which was a near interception.

I would need some serious specifics as to those mistakes you mention before calling LaFleur a problem.
I do wonder how the 49ers worked the middle of the field so well on passing plays, but not the Packers. It seems difficult for defensive coverage to stay with receivers across the middle of the field, especially if they are going in different directions.

Coldwell,
I truly love having MLF as the Packer head coach but this game brought me considerable concern about him as a successful coach going forward. The lack of creative offensive game planning was appaling. Running on first downs with 9 defenders in the box. Then running the ball with 10 defenders in the box on 2nd down. Subsequently, ending up with 3rd down and 6 yards to go allowing the defense to tee-up and get after Rodgers.

The Packers desperately need a healthy Tonyan. Deguaria has dropped so many very important passes at key times in recent games that were very catchable. I like him but he is simply not ever going to be a good move TE.

Special team's are horrific!

Offensive line is not very good. Yes, I know Jenkins and Bachtiari did not play. The resigning of Bachtiari was one of the worst moves the Packers have done in a long time. Huge contract and nearly 30 years old who has missed playoff games in past two years significantly contributing to the Packer loses when opposing teams with strong defensive lines destroyed Packers OL.

Rodgers simply needs to be traded! Not worth what he makes now let alone what it would take to resign him. Cannot throw to anyone but Adam's. Adam's needs to go as well. Need fresh faces and youth for the rebuild!

Off season moves cannot come soon enough. Just hope MLF has no input in player moves and the front office put public sentiments aside and trade 'cannot win in the playoffs Rodgers!'

No doubt, special teams were complete garbage... BUT...

Rodgers scored 10 points at home. He had the ball, up 7, with 5 minutes to go. He had the ball in a tied game. Did absolutely nothing with either possession and his last pass as a Packer will be a chuck it up 3rd down play rather than just trying to move the sticks...

ST were terrible, but Rodgers and MLF allowed it to matter. They do more than put up 3 points after the first drive and this terrible performance by the special teams wouldn't have been the difference.

And the defense gave up the game winning drive. Did Rodgers give up 10 points on Special Teams? Did Rodgers drop a wide open pass over the middle that killed a great second drive? Did Rodgers fumble the ball while driving on the 49ers side of the field? Did Rodgers create those drive killing penalties that put them behind the chains?

My only question marks coming into this game which I thought would decide the Packers fate were:

1. Can Rodgers reign-in his usual self-destructive impulse to force pas after pass to his safety blanket, Adams now, Nelson before that.

2. Can they stick with a balanced run game for all 4 quarters?

3. Can Rodgers be patient for 4 quarters and take what the 49ers defense gives him—and then make them pay the two or three times they make a mistake?

The answers were resoundingly, again, no, no, and no.

The only thing different in style and substance from tonight and all the other playoff chokes over the past 10 years (except for the Seattle NFCC game) was the Super Bowl caliber defense. You can’t blame McCarthy. You can’t blame receivers. You can’t blame refs. You can’t blame special teams coaches. You can’t blame poor defensive play.

You can blame the guy who has a crappy lifetime playoff passer rating and who demands that he have control of the offense and needs “to be heard”. That much is clear by now.

Rodgers did not lose this game for us, but it’s equally true that he did not win it. He’s paid to be a difference maker. He wasn’t really enough. The D today was blameless. He needed to lift us because of STs. He couldn’t. That’s not his fault but it is why he’s taking up so much of our cap. LaFleur was the problem today both directly and through his handling of Drayton. Rodgers deserved better from LaFleur. It’s not his fault primarily but it is why the era has ended in all likelihood.

This one is just so brutal...All season long we felt, even knew ST would cost the Packers a game. It almost did in Cincinnati but Mo Draytons was allowed to stay around until a REALLY important game and just fuck it all up.

That's ON YOU MLF.

Didn't like the play calling at all. No rollouts to help with pressure and nothing really to get Cobb and Lazard involved. Rodgers ONCE again held onto the ball to much IMO.

What a GREAT defensive effort wasted by a ST unit that cost us 10 points AND the game.

It was a fun season guys but I gotta take a break. Love and respect to all my fellow Packers fans. I'm just so devastated right now.

Wasted probably the best defensive effort by a packer defense sine the Lombardi era. We've said nearly all season that at some point STs were going to cost us a game. Well the STs cost us a game and a season. Offense didn't do much after their first drive. Loss of Dillon hurt but play calls and execution were poor after the opening drive and the FG drive.

Defense deserved a much better fate, they played brilliantly. Could not possibly ask for any more from the defense.

MLF promoted Drayton and kept him, now he owns this. As for Rodgers, Adams and some of the others it's time to move on.

As for me, I think it's time for a sabbatical. Later guys. Everyone stay safe. Thanks, Since '61

Grrrrrrrr!
***
Lots of good things from the Packers in this game, and so I thought we would pull out the victory.
Good hard tackling by the defense with an effective bend-but-don't-break tenacity.
Good discipline by Rodgers to mix runs and passes, and to take care of the football.
***
My only major concern at this point (except special teams) is why the 49ers were able to get so many pass catchers open across the middle of the field so often. while it seems the Packers rarely worked the middle of the field on pass plays, if at all.
***
Aside from the obvious disasters of special teams (though Amari Rodgers looked good), it seems the 49ers were more physical and more effective in both moving the ball on offense and stopping the Packers with their defense.
I don't know if the field conditions actually helped the 49ers or not, and how much losing Dillon to injury hindered the Packers, but it seems the 49ers were the better team in this game on both offense and defense, not just on special teams.
That may be the real story of this game, although it may be lost in the understandable agony of failure on special teams, and the limiting factors for our passing game of frigid and windy weather.
***
This hurts, and it's such a long time until next September.
However, I'm proud of the way the Packers played today, including the fight that they showed throughout.

Couldn't agree more Aaron with your comments. To summarize all your points: Our 13-win coach got out-coached. While we have a good coach, but he made 3 crucial mistakes: (1) He should have replaced the special teams coach long ago. The terrible play of our ST all season cost us a Superbowl. (2) Nijman had success all season at LT & is replaced in the playoffs for someone who hardly played left tackle all season or not at all? This coaching decision weakened our offensive line. (3) The play calling and execution of our offense was ineffective after the fumble. Great coaches make adjustments. Where were the successful adjustments? Hopefully our coach will make the correct adjustments in the off season.

It appeared obvious to the Fans watching the Game that Cobb could not run. The 49rs figured that out in no time and put the heavy on Adams and controlled Lazard's options which were limited due to the monotonous and predictable game plan of La Fleur. Kleen Haus..

I'm not sure how much of the difference is intelligence or class. That might be significant. But what strikes me is the difference in leadership style, or just lack of leadership by AR. If Brady's opponent had just scored a TD to tie the game with a few minutes left, Brady would be pacing around on the sidelines telling his guys to get ready to join him in retaking the lead. Rodgers sits on the bench by himself, maybe sulking, maybe thinking deep thoughts, who knows. Yes, Rodgers has led some amazing last-minute comebacks, but not in any playoff games. (I don't like Brady, but have a grudging respect for his skills, including his gritty competitive spirit.)

Personally, if Rodgers is going, I'd call in MLF and tell him to fire Drayton and "while you're at it, tell him to find a place for you too. You deserve to stick with him now too since you didn't want to fire him earlier." I'd bet Drayton already had his bags packed. He's probably already driving out of town.

What reason is there now to try to bring AR back and kill the cap for years with less of a team? I don't believe Love will be a good QB. Expecting many mediocre years now. This sucks and it is on MLF.

Fire the Coach. Fire MLF. You may not like that. But if you can't beat Detroit. You don't deserve to advance in the playoffs. You don't fix special teams. You fire the coach. You don't know how to block. You fire the coach. The veterans should have been on the OL. Turner should have been at RG. And if your facing the best kicker in the NFL. You sure don't give the 49ers the chance to win it. Because the refs suck. It was just a matter of time they double teamed Adams. This offense sucked and it wasn't Rodgers Fault. They gave up. They pulled NFL career moves and not champion moves. It's painful. But was it a surprise? Not really.

First off, thank you for NOT closing with "I love this team." Most of us right now do not.

MLF, "Mr. Regular Season": Had no meaningful impact on this game except for the first drive, where we went through SF like a combine harvester. Rest of the game? Illusion of complexity? Getting anyone else involved (except in a minor way) save for DA and AJ? Did he have a plan for the second half? Not a chance. Just waving his arms like a cheerleader to get the crowd going....

Rodgers: Don't know what to say except that we've seen this movie before: Part coach, part GM, and another playoff loss. A whole lot of good it did to bring Cobb back.

Forgettable game for M. Lewis and Deguara.

MVS: Missed you.

I would definitely say we need to add speed and play-making ability to our WR corps in the future. Anybody see Ja'Marr Chase in the earlier playoff game?

Drayton: Not discussing it. It turns my stomach just thinking about him. Same with the organizational approach here. Maybe they'll finally get their heads out of their rear ends here and start taking this unit seriously. And bringing Wirtel in was a terrible move.

Barry: At least one of the big three knows what he's doing and has his unit ready to play. Maybe he's ready to be a head coach....of the Packers. Not happening, but right now it's a pleasant thought.

MLF: Just to reiterate, not worth a sh*t. Totally out-coached by Shanahan.

Gary, Barry: It almost makes me cry to see that kind of defensive effort wasted. You give up two lousy field goals, and you lose? Only in the Twilight Zone.

So now all we get to look forward to is how this team (and hopefully some of the organization) gets disassembled. I guess the sooner, the better. Three strikes and you're outta here--we can't get it done in the playoffs.

Too much to say, but somehow not enough.
What stinks is that during the whole Rodgers Era, we were waiting for a defensive performance like this in the playoffs...which never really happened before...and we finally get it, but..

Honestly this is mostly on the special teams. I don't think Bojo had a chance there, and I'm not sure Crosby did, either.
But the offense...and I don't want to blame Big Dog...never got in a good rhythm after his fumble. And too many momentous plays that went against us. After the long pass to AJ, a TD there would've given them, a very big halftime lead at 14-0. Even 10-0 would've increased our margin for error. The D was great, but what's with Stokes looping behind the receiver with the ball still in the air? Only a rookie, so...but we could haver at least one more pick.

Just a frustrating day. STs were trying to kill us all year, and they finally did.

Looking at the play again, while I'm loath to criticize Jones, who brought it all night: If he
continued down the sideline, he may not have scored, but may have gotten inside the 10, and saved a TO. The way that half ended was almost a cruel foreshadowing of what was ti come.

Bruh,

You’re a Rodgers fan, not a Packers fan.

Nobody made 12 force the ball over, and over, and over again to a well covered Adams. Nobody throw check downs behind guys forcing them to make huge adjustments that prevented any YAC. Nobody else held the team hostage to bring back an aging and injury prone receiver who had bounced around the league for the few years after he was cut from the Packers (and that after several injury prone years where he had also clearly lost a step). Nobody made Rodgers hold out because he felt he should have more ”more of a voice” on personnel and game planning decisions.

We’ll never know exactly how much is in MLF and how much on Rodgers. Just like with McCarthy. Neither would throw Rodgers under the bus like that. But given the MLF playoff meltdowns look a lot like McCarthy playoff meltdowns (minus the harebrained clock management gaffs), I’m looking at the one guy in common: #12. He wanted all the eggs in his basket this year. He got it. And then dropped it. Yet again.

And when we had the chance to hire the best ST coach out there, Russ Ball low-balled his salary and he walked away. That’s why we can’t have nice ST.

Sigh. Adios Aaron. I dont believe he could have been any less interested being on the field. tonight-mind you, he spent the evening wearing Bosa for a cape. Several thoughts come to mind. Why abandon the run? Why abandon the short passing game? Why wasn't Ysoh playing his starting spot? I think the kid did enough to earn his place there. We badly miss the toughness of Jenkins on the o line. THE 2021 special teams unit was akin to a Stwpen King Novel.....every time you thought it couldn't get more horrifying, a page was turned and something more frightening happened. Tonifhr, the horrors came home to roost. Ten point slide sits squarely on the special teams unit. The packers D did. good job for the most part. Kenny is the man and Rashan has developed into the disruptive beast we thought he would be. Next year, lots of new faces.....gone on D, the smiths, probably Amos, Kevin king(amen). Gone on offense, Rodgers, Adams, though I would do everything I could to bring him back for our young qb. Cobb, possibly Baktiari who still isnt fully recovered. I love my Packers, been a fan since 64, I think we still have a great future going forward,, good young coach who is still learning, great fans, a good young qb, and some good pieces in place to build around. This is a disappointing end, but, we will be back next year. GOPACKGO!

Sadly..a lot of weak points reared it’s head! Rodgers wasn’t sharp put too many drops and Lewis’s fumble hurt. On the field goal, we were in a position to score but a flag and sack stopped that. The o line wasn’t good and losing AJ was a killer.The D was great, perhaps best performance of the year! In this game 10 points should of been enough….and as many feared the special teams were are ruination!

Dillions loss meant very little. Jones did everything and more than they asked him to do. While people like to harp on how great Dillion is sure hadn't shown much in that game.

When something like this happens, it reminds me of just how amazing that Patriots run was. Rodgers is a fantastic regular season QB, but he's not the GOAT. Winning the Superbowl may not be a QB statistic, but it matters.

For those that know me on here, I've been calling it Stupid Teams, not Special Teams.

For anyone that follows the Packers closely, are you really that surprised? Are you? You're shocked the 32nd ranked special teams unit in the NFL had not one, but TWO major gaffes that caused a TEN POINT SWING? For goodness sake, they had 10 ten men on the field for the game winning field goal....AFTER A TIMEOUT. You cannot make this up.

If you are surprised, then I'm surprised that you're surprised. Because then you haven't been paying attention to this simmering volcanic eruption of crap that hit the fan tonight. This is simply a period to a sentence that the Packers have been writing all season long.

For the defense, my hat is off. That was championship football. That was elite. They didn't do anything wrong. Joe Barry had his guys ready to play and they balled out.

For the offense, they looked like they didn't know what to do. Where was Cobb? Where was Lazard? Where were the TEs? It literally was a one dimensional showcase of Adams + Jones.

Blow it up. Trade Rodgers. Let Adams walk for a 3rd rd comp pick. Start over again with Jordan Love and invest in some special teams players who can play. It's exhausting watching this Stupid Teams train wreck. Just don't act surprised that it ended this way.

Agree with what you say, but I now firmly believe that MLF is a significant part of the problem and will remain so as long as he’s our coach. He’s just not able to learn or grow and his handling of Drayton is laughable.

He's a bigger reason for success than the problem though. He's transformed the culture and managed Rodgers' ego. Is it his fault for hiring Mo? Absolutely.

MLF has to shoulder some of the blame he is the head coach after all. ST, Drayton just bad should have been gone/fixed long ago. In his defense MLF is the reason Barry is here and he's had a diva for a QB. Let's see what happens with the O going forward.

All I know is that years ago when the Patriots' "special " teams were faltering, Belichick took them over and righted the ship. LaFleur had that opportunity in Sept-October and let it all slide. You get what you pay for. Low-Ball and Murphy squeezing Rizzo has crashed their portfolio.

Kudos for a great defensive effort. Special teams sucked with a 10 point swing. And the MVP laid an egg after the first drive. Probably the end of the Rodgers Era. Why pay all that money for someone who doesn't play their best when you need it.

Turn the page on the.Aaron.Rodgers Era. Nothing against Rodgers, but the reality of the Salary Cap situation means the only sensible option is to trade him and load up on high draft picks. The Giants have two #1's in the top 7. And their organization is a mess, so they may be willing to ante up to bring Rodgers to New York. The Eagles have three #1's, and they think they 're only a QB.away from a Super Bowl. There's plenty of desperate GM's and goofy owners who would sell their mothers for a legendary QB. Even if he only plays a few more years. I'm doubtful Love will be the next great QB, but if they can gouge someone, and.then.draft wisely, GB can still be a decent.team.

This reminds me of the Seattle loss where the Defense played great and it took a comedy of errors to lose the game,
The Packers are pathetic chokers, they proved it tonight.

10 points and 58 yards of second half offense are not championship numbers.

Get a QB willing to run MLF's offense.

This is not on AR. This is on the ST and MLF for not firing him and allowing this shit show to continue. Also MLF is way over rated no creative play calling no adjustments just the same stale offensive plays. He sucks as a coach. It’s time to clean house in the front office fire MM, BG and MLF for allowing this shit show.

When Rodgers reverts to throwing almost-dirtballs, you know they're doomed; he did it even when there wasn't any immediate pressure.

Aaron, Corey, Al, and all of your contributors here, thank you for making this shit show of a year bearable. This goes out to all of my friends who post their thoughts here too.

He really did it. Called “The Last Dance.” I had a sick feeling it was all over at that very moment. He ruined the entire season for me with his reckless antics, drama and his continued intolerable arrogance. All I heard him really vocalize during the season were his desires to win MVP, far more frequently than a desire to win a Super Bowl… Says a lot.

Anyone surprised to see Aaron Rodgers forego the running game to key on Davante Adams and Randall Cobb in the 2nd half? It’s what he does, and has been doing for years. This goes to the notion of making the same mistakes, again, over and over, and over, expecting different results.

Speaking of which: Shame on Matt LaFleur for keeping Mo Drayton, or anyone else from LAST year’s train wreck of the ST coaching staff.

Onto bigger and better things for our Packers in what I hope will be a solid rebuild. Let’s hope for the best.

LOL. No question the offense will miss AR.
No question the offense will miss Adams.

I'd venture a guess that GB will stick with the run next year. And that it won't be pretty.

Looking forward to it Georgia! Give me three or four top draft picks and players to go along with the Packers own draft picks and the Packers will be just fine. A QB who actually spreads the ball around so defenses don't key on one receiver would be refeshing!

Mark Murphy: open your wallet with everyones stock buy money and add the best ST coach available in the NFL.
Punter: you don't have to take 2 steps to punt the ball...catch-punt.
ML: learn how to change up your game plan when it stops working. Taylor in when Dillon out.
AR: There is more than 1 WR on the team.
ST: SUCKED AS ADVERTISED. That's 7 points given to SF blocked punt, and 3 taken from GB blocked 3 point attempt. This is what you get when you are too cheap to get known quality (ST) coaches on board (Murphy).
Defense: Allowed 6 points in 4 quarters. You have no blame in this fiasco. You played outstanding. I tip my hat..!!!!
Offense: What I don't like about it is it takes multiple TE's just to have time to throw the ball. Having TE's in blocking makes less weapons receiving the ball and makes it easier to cover the WR's. This is the fundamental flaw in ML offense. It works in the run game but suffers in the pass game. We need another couple bigger stronger OL, therefore taking the pass block need away against stronger DL's.
Gute: WR's missing Elite speed...Draft it ASAP. TE's like Anderson of Ravens...Draft.

This feeling is like the 2014 punch in the gut loss to Seattle.
What can I say that others haven't said already?
Lots of fingers to point at, except the defense.
Don't want any drama this off season, decisions need to be made sooner rather than later after the dust settles on this big disappointment.
I will support whom ever is on the team next year!
