Yes it is the offense. Yes it is MM and some AR.

Anybody still want to argue "players not plays" after that game?

Defense needs serious rushing help but played well. For God's sake - there was a goal line stance! My only complaint against the D given their players is the lack of forced fumbles. It seems every game I watch, the opposing team is trying to strip the ball and we don't. NE's opening speed drive caught Packers totally off guard but they recovered. The trick plays at the end of the game were killers. BECAUSE IT IS PLAYS TOO - not just players.
But offense needs to score 30+ points and with Adams, MVS deep threat, Graham and AJ and AR there is no excuse.

I've been on the dump MM bandwagon for the last 3 years. Now it might be too late. Season is almost lost and AR might not be AR anymore (even though he is still very good). I wish MM would just fade away now but I don't know that Philbin could take over and Pettine is busy at the moment. My guess is that MM has lost the team and everyone 'knows' he won't be here next year. That has to have an effect on everyone.

Oh yeah - and I like to see him try the "I'm a highly successful football coach" line now. He would get laughed off the stage.

I would suspect that McCarthy will be happy to move on to another team like Cleveland after this season. Having to deal with two diva QB's with declining skills has probably sapped much of his patience and energy in Green Bay.

Cleveland will welcome McCarthy with open arms, and I'll predict he'll be successful there with a young talented QB and a talented group of players.

Is this MM to Cleveland story merely based on Dorsey/Wolf etc, or has it been substantiated in some way?

Tom O’Malley killed the Packers offense.

who's fault is it ? who knows mcarthy because of his play calling or rodgers because he changes up the plays my guess is both rodgers changing up the plays and mccarthy doing the same old thing since the superbowl i think it's time for a change or is rodgers really slowing down and doesn't have the arm like he uses too.these and many other thing in the days and life of the packers

It’s all our fault.

Way to save on he punctuation. It's overrated.

McCarthy is very much the fault of the current play calling which hasn't changed in the last 5 or 6 years.
The defensive' teams have watched the tapes and know the patterns of the wide receivers resulting very little separation on all passing plays. This is because of our basic offensive scheme. If our current coaches cannot come up with new schemes, then get rid of them and find people that will change our boring offense

Sorry TT killed this offense. TT sabotage this team. I said it in 2014 and I'll say it now. No All-pros . No Future!

Lare's picture

I agree.

I blame the offenses problems mostly on MM and his old and outdated play book, along with his not being able to make in game changes to help his offence. I'm so sick of looking at MM on the sidelines with that I just plugged the toilet look on his face when his play calling isn't working.

Next I believe the players have no confidence in him.

Last it looks like Rodgers isn't close to being 100% healthy, weather it's his shoulder from last year or his knee or a combination of both.

Lastly I think he's missing his friend and quarterback coach and that's a bigger problem then most realize.

There should be absolutely no lamenting releasing the underperforming, given every chance, selfish Whitehead. Enough is enough.
More changes are coming. McCarthey will be given the respect of finishing another disappointing season. He will be gone. We will reboot the entire OL..and maybe, even President Murphy, who has had his head up hits hole for years, will be gone, too.

GB waived Whitehead (surprisingly enough), put Allison on the IR, and promoted LB Will Redmond to the 53. Redmond is a former safety.

All of this has little effect on the cap. Waiving Whitehead might save $35K and change. Putting Allison on IR probably costs $226K roughly.

Bruce Irvin passed through waivers and is now an unrestricted free agent. Nobody wanted to pay him $3.7M for the rest of the 2018 season.

Lare's picture

TGR, do you think the Packers should sign Irvin? And if so, at what salary?

Thegreatreynoldo's picture

$1M or less, which means we pay him $470K for the rest of the season.

IDK really. I haven't watched the guy play, but I am seeing 6 tackles in 246 snaps. That's pathetic. Yes, he's a situational pass rusher, but remember NE not allowing us to substitute to get Burks off the field and then marching down the field?

Not a fan of PFF grades but:

66.7 63th Average Fackrell
61.5 70th Average Gilbert
55.7 91st Average Irvin
55.5 94th Average CM3
54.3 96th Average Perry

Murphy won't be released, he'll be given some fictitious title like "President of Land Development".

I actually blame Murphy more than anyone else for the current mess the Packers are in. Just think where they could be today had he had the guts to replace TT 3 years ago.

I blame the offense's problems on years of drafting left tackles... and then plugging them in somewhere else on the offensive line.. when it was finally realized they couldn't handle LT at the pro level. The O Line is where the problem's that simple!
