The Good A, The game is over just didn't show up
The Good B Quay, Anders, Romeo
The Bad No sense of urgency by most, play calling lack of Head coaching, MLF message is not getting thru, and injuries as well. Musgrave big part of squad
Ugly as always, Joe (no answer, no adjustment) Barry please tell me MLF, Joe has pictures of you with farm animals or worse holding Joe Biden banners at Trump rally. Young team but this guy running your defense is not going to get you the playoffs. Injuries have hurt no question but how long can you keep claiming this. Long season is ahead

Ugly: LaFleur, Stenovich/Butkus, Barry, the run. Their continued involvement in the team. These undead need interring.

Bad: The OL not named Tom. Musgrave’s injury.

Good: Love under ridiculous pressure. The young receivers, including Toure (heck of a catch). Seeing Kraft get involved and even Deguara. This team has spirit, but its focus appears to be Love not LaFleur. We can lose badly, but still be excited about the upside.

Wow, 14 total yards in the first half is considered good. Rodgers would have been crucified for that.

We don't need spirit. Spirit is for cheerleaders and fans. The Packers lack physical and mental toughness. Just look at the leadership on the sidelines at yesterday's. If you ask NFL players who leads and demands toughness, execution and pride; Campbell or MLF. I believe, we know how the majority would vote.

The good : Doubs continues to stack success. JLove had a good deep ball (its a good step in the right direction for him at least). Ford has been better at S.

The bad : mental mistakes even though its to be expected with a young team with a lot on their plate.

The ugly : O-line play...I'm not even mad that the Pack didnt run the ball alot or take a deep shot or two towards Watson with how the line played. running on early downs would have just put us behind the sticks and let the D pin the ears back and not enough time for Watson to get downfield with how the line played. I know it didnt work but staying on schedule with short passes on 1st to setup run or PA pass on 2nd wouldnt have been a bad strategy to keep the D honest.

People booing at Lambeau.... in week 4 of a total rebuild on offense.... pathetic...I'm so sad that the reality of having some injuries and the youngest team in the NFL burst the visions of winning the division this year and then competing for a SB next year...hopefully some of the bumps we experience this year will shake loose these whiny, entitled, fair weather fans. You want to be mad or upset the Packers arent doing great...THATS FINE AND EVEN UNDERSTANDABLE .... but we are a good 2 years out from the kids on this team deserving any boo birds... have some patience people its gonna be a long, up and down season...WE ARE NOT FAIR WEATHER VIKINGS FANS SO STUFF THE BOOS

30 years of winning and you lose your shit after a 2-2 start....YOU AND ALL THE OTHER BOO BIRDS ARE JUST WHINY, SPOILED BRATS...We didnt boo in the 70's we didnt boo in the 80's we didnt boo when Favre was starting out and we didnt boo when the Rodgers era started rough. So suck it up buttercup, this team is gonna have a few more games like this. You dont like it then show us that you are just like the fair weather Vikings fans we all rip on and go do something else.

Mainly, last Tuesday on this site, I worried that the Lions were going to kick the shit out of the Packers. Well. . .

At least you were right to worry. No need to worry anymore. What you see is where we are. Drop the expectations, either negative or positive. At least we’re not the Bears.

Every week when I sit down to watch the game, I remind myself this is a very young team and theres gonna be growing pains. For those that continue to bash Love, let me just say this; 6-10. That was Aaron Rodgers record in his first full season. 9-6. Brett Favres first full season(followed by 2 9-7 seasons}. Cut him a break. Our vaunted running game? Non existent. That falls back to A) not handing off to jones the entire first quarter and B) the continuing voids in the 0 line. I love Bak, but how many starts has he had in the past few years? A 20 mil per on average? Not enough. Then there is the defense. Some day, I fully expect Q Walker to get his head screwed on straight Theres moments where the rules of football seem to evade him. And Rashan "Claude Raines" Gary? Nuff said there. Finally, the coaches, Lafleur is concentrating on his rookies maturing, but he isn't giving them the chances to win. Know your personal! win with what you know you have out there!! As for Barry? He doesn't seem to have a blessed clue, and even in the two games the team has won hes been caught often with the wrong personal out there. that being said, young team, long season yet to improve GOPACKGO!

The Good: Romeo Doubs, Quay Walker, The Referees that gave The Packers a Free play at the end of the third quarter.

The Bad: Everything not listed above.

The Ugly: The Lion fans at Lambeau. It breaks my heart hearing “Let’s Go Lions” on and off in the 2nd half.

I forgot one crucial detail for the Ugly: WHY DIDN’T AARON JONES GET THE BALL IN THE FIRST QUARTER? Might have helped with the pass rush.

The Good: The first 3 minutes of the game, Walker, Carlson and Doubs.

The Bad: The remaining 57 minutes of the game.

The Ugly: Injury to Musgrave. OL and DL totally manhandled.

Regardless of how anyone feels about Love he had no chance last night behind the Packers OL. The young skill players will make mistakes as they evolve but if the Packers can't get people blocked it doesn't matter. This team needs to time and the coaches need to improve dramatically or need to be replaced.
Thanks, Since '61

Agreed. Remember how badly we wanted Gutekunst to take Alim McNeil?

Lol.

Whoosh. What a freaking disaster. Why did we draft Myers again? Pitiful performance.

Why did we refuse to challenge Myers? Why do we refuse to play Nijman? Why isn’t Tom at C? Why did we ignore the issues we saw against weaker teams? Not just on OL but on the O generally and on D.

This year was always going to be a test for LaFleur and the coaching team he assembled. Was the failure of the last dances Rodgers or LaFleur? Last night very clearly showed the same types of errors all through the team, from preparation, the offensive okay calling, the debunking again of the O line wisdom and the D coaching in all phases.

We gave LaFleur rope with Rodgers gone. He’s used it. The only question is how long Murphy will leave him twitching. This team will never be as good as the sun of its parts until LaFleur and his inept over promoted team are gone.

Face the facts in front of us. LaFleur was a disastrous hire.

"We’re going to have to do something different, because it’s insane to do the same things over and over again and expect a different result,” LaFleur said last night of his D.

It should have been Murphy saying that of LaFleur. Then it might actually change things. Nothing else will, despite the fact that we will win against lesser teams due to the on field talent: the calling card of the LaFleur era.

Coldworld I will never understand how/why Murphy could decide to hire anyone, including MLF, for the 2nd most important position in the organization after just one 2 hour interview. Nothing against MLF at the time but that is just terrible hiring practice.

I have no problem losing games with a young team and a first year QB but losing as badly and playing as badly as the Packers played last evening is on the coaches. The team was not prepared to play at any level on either side of the ball. The same weaknesses that have existed throughout the MLF era were exposed again last evening, specifically lack of physical play by the Packers. Thanks, Since '61

They are a young team because this is what Murphy and Gute have created. The Packers are in Salary Cap hell for the next two years. The problem with this team starts at the top. Its time for Murphy and Gute to get the boot. Its obvious that the Packer season ticket holders feel the same way. I've never seen so many Lions Jerseys sitting in Lambeau field. Season ticket holders are selling out early this year. MGT needs to go...!!!!!!

It starts at the top...4 or 5 years ago when murphy decided he needed to undo what Mr. Harlan created he started this free fall. When he decided all decisions were to come through him is when no one else under him could feel free to make the decisions they thought best for the team. Murphy didn't take control over just to sit and watch Gutey make decisions. He took over to tell him what to do. Gutey is just being the good soldier not saying which decisions were his and which were Murphy's. Murphy was good for the business side but he's been bad for the football side.
