Packers Vs. Cowboys: First Impressions

My immediate thoughts on the Packers - Giants game without benefit of a re-watch.

...

The Cowboys offense impressed me last week against a good Cincinnati defense. In their first drive, they show the type of run/pass unpredictability that will makes things tough on the Packers' defense today.
 
As the Packers bring in Spriggs and go full power formation with two lineman and a fullback in the backfield on thrid and one, my thoughts wandered to 1) Would love to see a fake and a naked bootleg (haha... yeah, right) . 2) where is Eddie Lacy? 
 
Start of the 2nd quarter and with Lacy alreay hobbling, it's pretty apparant Rodgers is going to have to throw it all day long. And that should be just fine.
 
When was the last time you saw holding on a defensive lineman? Letroy Guion penalized for playing football.
 
Packers lose their third DB, as Randall looks to have re-aggravated his groin injury. Demetri Goodson is next man up. 
 
Almost immediately, he's called for pass interference that gives the Cowboys a first down on 3rd and three.
 
All Zeke Elliot needs is a little seam and he's picking up at least 5 yards. If Packers hold him to 100yds, that's a win.
 
Rodgers gets greedy on fourth and five.  Goes for the home run to Cobb instead of just waiting for something short to open up.
 
Only saw it once, so not 100% sure what happened, but wow that was an ugly interception by Rodgers.
 
Aikman: "I'm not sure why Rodgers didn't get Janis the ball right away"  Answer: Because he was looking downfield for a bigger play on 3rd and eight.
 
SOMEONE explain to me why you line up with a full house backfield on 1st and 10 in the Red Zone? Anyone?
 
Rodgers throws his first 2nd half touchdown of the season. If it were anyone but the #Packers, I'd say go for two. 
 
 
Final thoughts:
 
Call me crazy, but I'm happy any time I see Mike McCarthy mad. Good things usually happen the next week.
 
I've said this a thousand times, and it's always shrugged off; Rodgers' propensity to go for the big play on 3rd or fourth and a few yards is one reason why the Packers offense is not as productive as it could be. Move the chains, extend drives, good things will happen.
 
Conversely, fail to extend drives, keep giving the ball back to your opponent and bad things happen (see end of first half).
 
The five WR set you've all wanted finally made an appearance on the fourth and five where Rodgers tried Cobb deep and underthrew him.
 
I give Eddie Lacy a ton of credit for toughing this game out, but it's fairly ridiculous that the Packers didn't promote Don Jackson for this game.
 
Aaron Rodgers overthrowing a wide open receiver in the end zone? Really?
 
Haven't hear this much boing at Lambeau Field sinec the Randy Wright days.
 
I simply can not criticize a defense missing their three starting CBs.  Can't do it.
 
I knew the Packers would need to score a lot of points today to win. My whole game plan was "get out to an early lead." Unfortunately the Packers offense played like crap the first half. And four turnovers overall. Yuk...
 
Aikman: "It's been a long long time since we've seen the Packers play this poorly at home."  Not really. Troy.
 
Perhaps now Mike McCarthy will know why the hell he has to answer questions every week about the reporter's perception of an under-performing offense.
 
Is there any doubt that Cow will re-appear this week?
 
FINAL SCORE: Cowboys 30, Packers 16

Agreed, it was up and down for the defense today. The run D was a problem, but they got two turnovers immediately after the offense had a terrible turnover - after Jordy's fumble, and after AR's fumble. Sad to say, this game could have been much worse with the way the offense was going.

This was a pretty ugly loss. Aaron Rodgers cost us this game. When he missed a wide open Cobb in the end zone I was pretty sure that we were done. There was no excuse for the pick that he threw on the opening second half drive. Even if not picked that was another throw behind the receiver. Yet once we were down 27-9 he made some perfect throws on the Packers only TD drive. Where was that Rodgers for the rest of the game? Our OL, Lacy and Monty played great. Rodgers received great protection again from the OL but just did not execute except for the one TD drive. Something is wrong and I doubt that we will get it figured out by Thursday. We may still beat the Bears but that won't prove anything. First, we need to be able to field a team with all the injuries that we have. Tough day for the Pack. Thanks, Since '61

Yes you did, but you actually posted that our offense isn't very good. Actually our OL, Lacy and Monty played hard and were very good. I can't put this on anyone but A. Rodgers. The rest of the offense played hard and deserved a better fate. Can't even put much on the defense down 3CBs, although CM3 and Perry did not show up today. For Perry that's the first time this season. Thursday evening will get here quickly. Thanks, Since '61

it is not that he cannot make the hard throws he routinely used to make. he cannot make the easy throws. how many of the completions to day were picked off the ground by the receiver? he needs to see a shrink. well crosby was a head case for a year and now every field goal is right down the center. maybe AR will get it back. maybe.

I have been with you since you made the comments about Arod passing up first downs looking down-field. Seems we need to walk before we run again. And if people will remember, I had a number of negative comments after I suggested Rodgers was not right earlier in the year. Still love him, just sayin.

Could not agree more on Jackson comment & Red Zone backfield formation. We tried the TE over the middle once...Rodgers should have had it and Arod should have thrown the ball better, but need to keep LBs & safeties, honest with more than one pass.

- Mike McCarthy should be canned. Should have been after last year. MM gave Dallas a TD at the end of the half. What an idiot.

- Way to not activate another RB - Don Jackson. That cost GB two fumbles. What an idiot. .

- Nice five wide QB run call. What an idiot. Horrible call.

- Thanks for letting House and Howard go, TT. Goodson was awesome. So was Gunter. Way to go TT. Nice work.

- Aaron Rodgers is the most overrated player in the NFL. Period. No doubt. Pull your fucking head out of your ass #12 and realize you are one of the WORST QBs in the entire NFL right now. The WORST!!!!

- Speaking of Aaron Rodgers, you made Dak Prescott look like Joe Montana.

- Speaking of HOF's, our defense make Elliot look like Emmit Smith.

- Jordy Nelson is slow. He is also nothing like he used to be.

- This is an 8-8 team. At best.

No problem with what he did there at all. Odds of the defense letting Dallas go 97 yds for a TD were astronomical. You look at it as best case, you stop them and get the ball back. Worst case, they get a first down and run the clock out. Don't think I've ever seen something like that before...

And the only reason that BB doesn't have a shelf life is because he is absolutely BRUTAL to anyone not named Tom Brady. NO ONE in that organization is safe from being cut/traded. NO ONE.

BB is a bastard. But he's a ruthless and intelligent one. MM is not as smart, nor ruthless as BB. He's also a nicer guy.

31 other quarterbacks would love to have and would thrive with that level of pass protection and a running game averaging damn near 6 yards per carry. #12 is garbage. I take back a lot of the past criticism of Mashed Potato Mike cause this all on Rodgers. No matter what way you try to spin it this down fall on offense is clearly on the shoulders of the quarterback being terrible at reading defenses, being afraid to pull the trigger, no ball security, and lack of accuracy. Something has to change.... It maybe the scenery for someone, and I'm not thinking McCarthy for once....

This was truly the game that convinced me, this team isn't close to an elite team anymore. It's a team that can beat the Jacksonville's of the NFL but they won't beat the "Better Teams". Rodgers was soundly outplayed by a Rookie QB. He's developed some horrible habits that I don't think can be corrected without wholesale changes.

McCarthy FINALLY used Montgomery and look what happened? How much you wanna bet we don't see that the rest of the year. This team is SLOW as hell at the skill positions and the RB position is a joke! I love Lacy but what GM in his right mind would have 2 RB's on his roster?

This IS the Packers. This IS Aaron Rodgers, and this WILL continue to be this way until McCarthy and his coaching staff are shown the door. While your at it ask Ted to step down voluntarily and hire Wolf before someone else does.

17 games of this, 17. Rodgers has went from a player who never turned over the ball to a TO machine. I just hope a new coaching staff can resurrect his career before it's too late. You have "McCarthy Way" (Or whatever the name of his street is) now it's time to hit it Mike.

Make no mistake,TT came in after Mike Sherman and quickly cleaned up that mess kept GB competitive and won a SB but it appears at his age the rigors of being a GM has become too much for him

This was all on Rodgers. He sucked! I can fumble to take the heat off him too. How many have finally been calling for Montgomery over Adams. (And got to see what we knew all the time. ) I could not believe the short stuff when the game was given to the cowboys. And why go deeper on the 3rd down and 5s. Just poor ass play by Rodgers and the sets they used. Not to mention the sets used on defense. This game should have been a Cowboys blow out. Too early for the on side kick. My cut list got bigger today. If any of those back-ups are in the secondary next year, this team will not win another championship under MM or TT. Very disappointed!

That is a healthy attitude, Duke and Drealyn. It is the one I had in the 1970s and 1980s. Football was an event that was the excuse to spend time watching a game with my Dad, brother, and/or buddies. I watched for 3 hours, maybe read stories in the papers, but really didn't think about the Packers otherwise except on game day. Many a time in the 70's my brother and I would go out at half time and throw a football around.

It is why I viewed GB's situation with such urgency and was against the "consistent success with multiple playoff appearances will lead to super bowls." I couldn't say that isn't a viable method; heck, it still might work. But I viewed 2011 to 2014 as a time when the iron was hot. Maybe the FO can get it going again.

Not saying it's an excuse for the loss. But playing without your top 3 CBs definitely didn't help the defense.

Also playing with 1 true RB who wasn't healthy, affected what they could do on the offense. If Lacy was fully healthy I think they could have rode him a lot more. They had room to run, just no RBs to run it.

This week wasn't on anybody's shoulders who actually played. Ted deserves this L. Many reasons why
1. Not promoting or signing a 2nd running back
2. Not picking up a tight end who has any sort of speed.
3. Keeping abbrederis around when McCarthy obviously isn't going to use him
4. Keeping Goodson around instead of signing anyone else.
5. Not looking into another offensive coordinator. McCarthy's play calling has become bland and predictable. The pack needs someone who can call plays. Bennet as much as I love him hasn't done anything noteworthy as an offensive coordinator.

But I'm forever an optimist and we are 3-2 with a home game against the Bears. That should be a cure all. But who knows.

Dallas has the best oline in the league, so not being as good as them isn't necessarily a condemnation of our oline. I actually came away from the game impressed with our oline and thinking that they were almost as good as Dallas's. Rodgers had all day to throw and they opened up some holes for Lacy. Ours gave up one sack on 42 dropbacks; theirs gave up 2 on 27. The biggest difference to me was that Elliot is much better than a hobbled Lacy (or even a healthy Lacy really). After five games, I have zero issue with how Taylor has played in place of Sitton.

I don't agree that Rodgers had all day. The problem is A-Rod! He had several plays longer than normal, but that did not last. I agree on Elliot over Lacy. But I still have a few issues about Taylor. Several times he missed, and was on the ground. And when you consider how banged up this line was last year. It still does not sit well with me on Sitton's release. Taylor is going to get better, but I still saw this Zone Blocking scheme, not do what its design to do. Sitton's release was a big gamble when you consider Trotter and Taylor had to work together. And I think MM has the right coach in place to keep it working. But what happens if TT replaces MM. There goes the offensive line and coach. I believe if MM would be more like TT people would be happier. But is MM allowed to do that? Thats the biggest question. (Because how else can you explain Drop Adams.) Or Sitton not having a clue on why he was released. I think MM can only draw up the game plan. If MM goes so will the zone blocking. Green Bay is not paradise when you have to kiss TTs Ass.

Al, I also agree with a few other points:

I thought the Pack's best chance was to jump on the Cowboys early and force them out of their run-dominated offense.

The 5 WR set looked very disorganized. If somebody watches the game again, I know I saw at least 2 if not 3 WRs over the middle short, in the same vicinity, when throwing the ball to Cobb that was tipped.

Our ILBs did not show up when needed earlier in the game. Exception, Joe Thomas continues to perform in his specialty role.

Have to try to find some good: Arod and MM finally found Montgomery, who responded nicely. Eddie tough...just tuff! Mason solid.

Man, this one hurts in so many ways. It hurts that I've lost trust and confidence in McCarthy and Rodgers. It hurts that we have lost both CBs to injuries. It hurts that Lacy had to play on one leg. It hurts that a rookie QB came into our house and pushed us around. But what hurts the most is witnessing the deterioration of Rodgers. We all used to worry about the defense, but what about him? Who will criticize him? Will he listen?

I hate to say this, but I'm glad they lost. They deserved to lose. They've been limping by subpar teams like the Jags, Lions and Giants. Had they won, McCarthy wouldn't see a reason to make any changes.

Maybe this fires them up. Maybe it won't....but what I do know is this was the most embarrassing home loss in recent memory. Dallas is good, but without Romo and Bryant, they are certainly beatable.

Bob McGinn summed up Rodgers' struggles best:

"As far as planting his back foot from shotgun or a straight dropback, striding into the throw and taking a hit, it almost never happens. Just as Brett Favre fell into poor throwing mechanics later on during the Mike Sherman years, Rodgers is following suit."

"You see a lot of all-arm throws, skipping into throws, firing off balance and across his body. He sails one pass, bounces another. At times, his feet don’t work in unison with his torso. His deep-ball accuracy, once extraordinary, has improved somewhat from a year ago when it was embarrassingly bad for a player of his stature."

"One NFC personnel man has said several times that the Packers’ receivers don’t run routes in the classic sense of the word. The talent at wide receiver is more than adequate, according to several scouts, but McCarthy’s staple remains isolation routes instead of using bunches, rubs and other creative devices to give receivers easier releases into the secondary."

I've always been overly optimistic on the potential of the packers. The past year and a half has really made it hard to be optimistic at all. Trying to pin point the exact cause of this is probably an impossible task. Although 1 key difference between 2009-2014 and 2015-2016 is nobody is having any fun. The team from 2009-2014 was always smiling, laughing and competing. They might not have always won but they had a good time playing together. And we all had fun watching them. Fast forward to today nobody is enjoying this garbage that we see week in and week out. If this continues one of two things needs to happen at the end of the season.

1) Mike McCarthy needs to hire a real OC with fresh ideas.

Or 2) Mike McCarthy needs to be replaced

Rodgers is officially a bad QB right now. Bad. Like worse than Brian Hoyer. Missing throws. Throwing stupid picks. WTF. Missing wide open WRs. Even when he makes a throw he leads the WR into a massive hit.

I have zero confidence in this team. How many yards will Hoyer throw for next week? 400? I guarantee he'll throw for more than Rodgers.

This was a perfect storm of problems. Depleted by injury, under performing position players, missed open players, dropped catchable passes. If it were one thing, it wouldn't look so bad but it's a lot of stuff that isn't working. Not having 2 RB's was kinda dumb too. But we are missing top 3 DB's, our fastest TE, both RB's out or playing injured.

That locker room needs to call a player only meeting and get some stuff worked out otherwise, I expect very little incentive for the Packers to re-sign too many of our FA's next year.

This very well may signal the Packers downturn after so many years of success. Perhaps we are beginning our free fall into mediocrity and mid to early round draft picks. I expect Edgar to be hitting the road soon if things don't turn around and soon.

But let's remember, we started good last year and a dumped after our 6-0 start. Who knows, maybe after a cruddy first 6 games this year, we go gonzo the last 10 games. (even if not probable, it IS possible)

No positives whatsoever to take from this game,the only hope here is that GB has bottomed out and has no where to go but up but even a win against Chicago Thursday night will not change the fact that the offense is pedestrian at best, the defense was a mirage and was shredded by a far superior Dallas offense,despite a couple good games I knew Gunter wouldn't hold up,he looked like a high school boy out there,the D got zero pressure on pass plays and got there lunch handed to them in the run game. I can no longer believe this offense is going to turn a switch on at any point this season,it Is what it is... awful and the reason starts with Aaron Rodgers. The coaching today also hit an all time low. Dallas at their own 3 yard line with a little over a minute left in the half with no time outs? No problem says MM, I'll call em for you! Result,Dallas uses MM time outs to march down the field and score a TD before the half! At that point I imagine even his players were wondering who's side is he on? It's hard enough to win games against better teams without your own coach working against you by making idiotic decisions like that! We all know players have bad games and the secondary is banged up and is missing starters but in the case of Gunter how bad does he have to be before the coaches make a change? You would think they would at least give Hawkins a try,I don't see how that could have been any worse. We could spend hours picking this game apart but like I said in a post days before,this game will be a statement or a reality check and afterwards to sum it all up,the offense is broken beyond repair this year,the defense was terribly exposed and nothing will change until this stale regime is gone. I am looking forward to the retirement of TT and the Elliot Wolf era to begin the current GM and coaching staff has gone flat and is in dire need of change.

I agree. But I think the biggest bitch is this. If were going to bitch, they'll really give us something to bitch about. Meaning more loses.

I am getting the feeling that there will be plenty to bitch about during and after this season and like I said I hope TT retires soon before he leaves a big mess if he hasn't already, that will take the next GM 3 years to clean up, like WR,RB,TE, although I don't believe it will take Wolf 3 years of drafting to do it,he , like his father is not afraid of FA or trades

Don't agree with your criticism of the 97 yd TD drive. Every coach in the league would expect to either get the ball back to their offense for a FG at least, OR Dallas would run out of time to get into FG range. Instead the most improbable happened, our defense decided to give up a 97 YD TD drive in a few plays!! SMH. That's not on MM.

The way this offense has looked going back to last season, what made McCarthy think that if they got the ball back they would score? Funny thing is they did but had only1 TO left because McCarthy used 2 of them"for Dallas"and couldn't get out bounds any way

When questioned i stated, yhe pack have a so so run game, passing game with rogers is non existant, the pass d, yes they have injuries but with our best people is the worst in football. Hey 31 teams passed at least twice on two of our so called top picks in round two and three. Slow of foot and poor in coverage.

1) For all of you in the "trade Rodgers" camp - you are the same ones that say we are wasting our future Hall of famers best years. So now that all of you want to dump him.......what's the rush? Hear me out for a second. If all of you want a better team and you think we'll go 6-10, then why so angry? You'll finally get all of your high round picks that you want so badly and you can have Hundley be your QB next year and we won't be "wasting" anyone's years anymore since you all think he's such a bum.
2) For all of you in the "fire TT and MM" camp - aren't these the kind of losses you want? So we can get Wolf in there and have some learning curves and hire some Coach off the market like Pagano or Lovie Smith. Or maybe we'll poach a Belicek tree coach like Josh McDaniels. If you want these guys fired so badly, don't the Packers have to lose a bunch? Aren't you getting what you want when we lose? So why so much anger?
3) For all of you in the, "our defense is unwatchable" camp - find a good D in the NFL that loses all three starting corners and performs. Our run D would have been much better if our safeties weren't having to play corner duty most of the night. But fire Dom anyways right!? Cuz...rebuild right!?
In summary, it will be awesome watching our team under Elliot Wolf with Hundley for QB, an unknown entity at head coach, an unknown entity at defensive coordinator, and any players worth a damn because we will have to have tanked three seasons in a row to get them. But the good news is, Rodgers is a bum, so we're no longer wasting his best years. These next four years will be like the rebuilding of the Panthers. How's that working out for them this year?

If all of that happens (which it won't)...... You will just find more things to neg on. Your misery holds no bounds. Even if that fixed the Packers. You wouldn't find a way to be happy about it. So...to what end COW? When was the last time you were happy with what the Packers organization did? And the Superbowl in 2010 is not an answer, because it banned you and made you appear wrong, so you loathed that victory. So when?

Dish Network saved me from sure madness today. My receiver locked up and it was only 3 months old. I got to see one thing early Dallas scoring and that pretty much set the tempo. So will be without service just in time for the Bears game or is that training season. What can go wrong did go wrong today, I hate to say it but the ride is really bumpy right now.

rodgers used to be able to thread the needle with his passes consistently. now, he can't hit an open receiver in stride. all his throws are behind the WR. he needs some serious work on his mechanics.
also, how many years has it been that GB cannot make 3rd and a yard or 4th and a yard. they keep running the same play and expecting different results. how bout a naked bootleg or a pass when you have 11 guys that know its lacy or the fullback up the gut. drives me crazy. yesterday after that third down failure and kicking the field goal i was like....i'm going deer hunting....F this Jack!

Wasn't it so encouraging to hear MM's and Rodgers' comments after the game. My favorite is "We will learn from this". You can't fix a problem if you refuse to acknowledge what the problem is. Maybe when the "good old boys", Mark. Mike. Dom and Ted, vacation together they can continue to find ways to stay in denial. This bullshit would never have gone on this long if the team had a fat owner trying to get fatter rather than a powerless group of stockholders who "own" the team. Anyone want my Stock certificate. No charge!

I watched the Lions game and there are some comparisons to make. First, the Lions went out and found two new running backs who looked really good in yesterdays game. Two.

The Lions got back to d backs who were hurt and did not play against us. They did a great job on the Rams receivers.

The Lions passing game has improved immensely since they played us. Stafford and his receivers are now working well together.

The Lions have two new pass rushers who are fill ins and they did a great job yesterday recording three sacks between them.

My point, is they went out filled holes, made changes and shored things up that needed fixing instead of saying, gee we need to learn from this and do the same thing the next week.

If we had to play them next week, record another one in the loss column because they are now much better than the pack.

I'm not going to answer any comments on this post, so don't bother to reply.

I lost a few bucks on this game, thinking I could beat the money. Over the years I've tried numerous times to go with the grain & beat the money. It cannot be done.

Vegas knows how to set these lines to get the money to the side they want it. They win each & every week. Look at all the games from yesterday. Most were picked wrong.

Whether you want to accept it or not, GB will not win until the money is the other way. YOU CANNOT BEAT THE BETTING, ON ANY OF THE GAMES. Checkout all the games, & don't bring up NE. People hate that team, & the money is almost always the other way. Enough of that. None of you can see it anyway.

To blame AR for any part of this loss is a joke. He has absolutely NOTHING, 0, NOTHING to work with. Our DEFENSIVE BACKFIELD has to be the laughing stock of the league. Our 10 MILLION DOLLAR receivers in my opinion aren't worth 1/2 of what they are getting. ADAMS is a joke. JAMES JONES could do just as well as any receiver on this team.

AR had a couple of Bad Breaks yesterday, that could have turned that game around. Keep in mind, he's not 26 anymore, he's 32. There is a difference.

If you want to get rid of anyone, I'll give you 3 people to start with. Start with Ted Thompson & whatever he is? Then do what should have been done during almost the entire A.J. HAWK career, GET RID OF CAPERS. He obviously does not know Defensive Backs Very Well, & Finally who ever is in charge of conditioning on this team, should be selling Hot Dogs or Beer in the stands.

AS far as Players go, put Shields, Adams, & if Bulaga don't come back all on a bus heading anywhere out of GB. I know there are a few others as well. They are all useless.

AR gets more than his share of the blame, because of his salary, but not all of it. He has almost nothing to help him.

On a Good Note. This season is a long way from over. Even if GB loses Thursday night. I should have known better than to think I could beat the system. Just Remember what I'm saying, whether you agree or you don't. YOU CAN'T.

I'm not throwing in the towel yet. I also hope I don't have to double up COW.
