Good: offense finding ways to win games, obliterating the TOP, utilizing running backs (which I wished for years during the McCarthy era) , the positive turnover margin and big fat 0 in the turnover column yet again.

The bad: Rodgers looking to Allison for almost 3 interceptions, the offense's inability to figure out the blitz in the second quarter leading to Rodgers being sacked 4 times in the first half and injuries on both sides of the ball but specifically defense.

The ugly: Special teams play all around including JK Scott's abysmal shanks when the offense sputtered in the first half, the return game seeing as how the Packers are the only team in the league that opponents routinely force to run kicks out against, return coverage teams routinely getting beaten, inability to use Scott's hangtime to let gunners force a fair catch, and the middle of the defense being wide open, specifically on the Kelce touchdown (Martinez gaff? Who knows)

"almost 3 interceptions"
No such thing in the NFL... Only in horseshoes.

Okay, but he still almost threw them and we we're fortunate the defenders had slippery fingers or we'd be having a much different discussion.

G- Aarons, contested catches, final drive.
B-Shep, even the great final drive couldn't save his job.
U-Yes, the dreaded poor tackling rears it's ugly head again.

No doubt the tackling needs to improve... Many times the opposition exposes a teams weakness. -- KC is quick & has more speed than one team deserves.
Wait for the Chargers... tackling may improve significantly.

I agree with the tackling and our defense not being able to stop big yardage these offenses are getting

Good ---- 7-1
Bad ------ First half of a great season is already over.
Ugly ----- Too many Packer fans disregarding the realities of the NFL & demanding perfection on a weekly basis.

At no point did anyone demand perfection. This article was titled the good the bad and the ugly. No one said they should've won by 50 and should've given up 10 yards. They had many, many flaws to go along with their many accolades and they were mentioned for each.

Agreed, I agree there's a lot to work on and improve with this team. Special teams has not been up to standard ONCE this season, the defense has taken a step back, and Rodgers had trouble with chemistry with young UDFA receiving core. But we're 7-1. I'll repeat, 7-1. Great teams don't do everything right every game, great teams find a way to win. The NFL is about MATCHUPS rather the record of a team (even though we've had by far the toughest schedule of all teams) & we've won every matchup and have only taken one loss. I honestly feel spoiled.

I agree with the ugly, it's not easy winning games in the NFL. Unless you're playing the tanking Dolphins.

Pettin’s plan all along was to play them soft and keep the offense in front of them, so that their weapons and speed couldn’t beat us on the long play. Kelce beat them once, but that was it. It might’ve been painful to watch, and they needed to make some adjustments at halftime, But they executed it well. And it worked because we won.

I totally agree with you regarding the defense and not being able to stop all this yardage they are giving up to the other teams offense.

Darius Shepherd is awful. Don't we have other receivers on Special teams? How is this guy keeping his job?

The Good: Offense, 7 and 1, the Aaron twins
The Bad: Some of the worst tackling I've ever seen, maybe it was 'pad level'?
The Ugly: Is there a real ST Coach available somewhere?

Good: Aaron Jones with the ball. Anytime. Jamaal Williams making a spectacular catch in the right corner of the end zone. Rodgers throwing the ball to Jamaal as Rodgers is moving to his right, falling and with both feet off the ground. Allen Lazard going 5-5. He's making his case for being WR#3 behind Davante and MVS.

Bad: Porous O line blocking on the right side of the line. Both Bulaga and Turner missed blocks and had gotten beat on more than one occasion. Linsley has been suspect, lately, there as well. Looks to me as if Gute needs to draft O Line next Spring or acquire proven help there in FA.

Ugly: Tackling. Why does this even need to be looked at midway through the season? Terrible tackling and piss poor effort on more than one occasion. Criminey, they looked like the Badgers for a while. Back to fundamentals, defense! Wrap them up! ST's play. Shepherd was not the answer returning punts. Now he's gone. I hope others notice that.

That catch by Williams was amazing. Watching it on TV I thought it was thrown over their heads. Then I see the TD signal. What a great throw and catch. That will be shown for years to come.

The Good: Aaron Jones, Aaron Rodgers, J. Williams, OL, Amos, Z. Smith, MLF and Pettine for adjustments.

The Bad: Poor tackling, DL play except for Lancaster's FF and recovery.

The Ugly: Special Teams returns and coverage.

On to the Chargers. Go Pack Go! Thanks, Since '61

The o-line looked better at run blocking than pass blocking, Since'61. Especially the fantastic final drive, imposed their will, it was great.

Good: "Illusion of Complexity". What LaFleur does well goes unnoticed. The offense uses this term mentioned before to describe their point of emphasis on offense; they want teams to second guess themselves as the Pack confuse with different formations, motions, misdirections, etc. all whilst running the same 20-25 plays. He has taken each player and made them universal which in turn makes the offense universal. You can split Aaron Jones out wide, bring him by AR12, slot, etc. You can pull Jimmy tight to a tackle, slot, split out. You can put DA or MVS anywhere from backfield to slot to outside. Long story short, players are position-less in a system like this, hard to tell where you're getting attacked from and from whom.
Bad: Mike Pettine. As expected, the big guy doesn't get an F from me, but it is noted, he lost his matchup with HOF offensive mastermind, Andy Reid. Reid was without his MVP this game and still had the ability to gas the defense. Whether it were quick snaps/throws to TEs/RBs, pre-snap motions that involved at least 2 misdirections (one play was a literal triple option reverse with a motioning receiver) or getting the ball to speedy playmakers, he made it look easy and did what he had to do to put his backup in a position to succeed. I don't think we credit Pettine for being bad here, we credit Reid for the excellence he continues to display each and every week.
Ugly: Special Teams. If it weren't for the rookie wearing number 6 and causing himself bloody noses from beautiful pins coming off his foot (besides this last game), it would be safe to say the Packers have the worst special teams of all 32. KR avg of 16 yards, PR of -2 or -3 yards. The NFC is a meat grinder and with all the good offenses/defenses we have had (or will have) to go through, field position will play a big part in winning especially as the race tightens. (PS, I almost wished the Packers would go back to having Tramon return punts//kicks at this point; CRINGE I know!)
