What do MLF, Gute, and,Murphy see in the Special Teams' coaching and their performance (s) this season and recent seasons past that has them accepting this perpetual pitiful, pathetic and impotent level of Special Teams' play?

The team is not and cannot truly be " all in " this season with this albatros dragging down the accomplishments of the Offense and the Defense.

Last night's ST play may have exceeded any recent memories of awful ST's play by a mile, which actually seems to be about how many yards the Bears Special Teams gained against against the Pack's Special Teams.

And this feeble performance came after two full weeks to prepare for the game?

The Pack's Special Teams has slid down faster and further than anyone on that giant slide outside the stadium ever could.

In my opinion, if a new ST coach (with reasonable experience on ST) was brought in right now... this week... with 4 weeks of regular season games left, he could be expected to show significant improvement in special teams. At least stop the bleeding and put out the brightly blazing fires. A triage effort would pay dividends.

Also in my opinion a change at the ST coordinator position is overdue. Mo has been exposed well before the bare game, he should have been put out of his misery much sooner. This is on MLF for a bad decision to keep the assistant of a failed coaching group, and now he is compounding his mistake by not admitting it and correcting it.

It's painfully obvious the Pack's S.T. Coordinator is way, way, way out of his league, and some might suggest his mind.
But, does anyone really think it's a good time to bring in some "New Guy" and a new system with four games left in the regular season? Is that enough time to get them ready for the playoffs?
It can't get much worse, can it?
The Packers have ignored special teams since Ron Wolf left, and have paid bargain basement prices for 'have been's and 'never been's. Yet, people keep talking about the 'Great' job Gutey's done.
The guy MLF initially wanted turned them down, likely not because they were offering him too much money.
If last night did nothing else, let's hope it showed the front office that you get what you pay for.

Rodgers now has the Packers in the #1 seed and all they have to do is win out to get the bye. But, let's see how much more time we can spend bitching about a long throw or a time out taken when needed.

Come on experts...tell us all how much more you know than a MVP QB and a very successful head coach that deserves coach of the year.

you are right, it is a one man team. nobody else at 1265 or on the roster has done anything to allow the gbp to be at 10-3, only rodgers.

get your sycophant head out of the area where it is embedded and look at the TEAM for a change, it might make this season a bit more enjoyable for you to actually acknowledge all of the superior efforts many of the current gbp players, coaches and front office have put forth to make 10-3 possible, including but not exclusively aaron rodgers.

this "team" would probably be watching the playoff like the Bears and Lions without Rodgers and thats the truth..

Without copious injuries and Love at QB all season long this version of the GBP would be right in the thick of the playoff chase.

Hows that for an "I know everything in the future" statement?

lacks any sense of validation, just like all of your statements of gloom and doom IF Rodgers wasn't the QB.

You and the other haters on here don’t have a problem pinning a loss on #12, do ya? So if he is responsible for the loss then he is responsible for the win; it’s that simple. You can’t have it both ways. Ohh, and I am enjoying the games just fine.

Bring in Tyler Ervin, Taylor hurt put him IR and the opening is there! Why is this so hard or are Packers just being stubborn? Plus he has fresh legs I am sure!
