Good: Rasul Douglas, despite dropped INT.
Bad: Gute hoping Watkins, Cobb wouldn’t be injured and unavailable, the TEs would be good in the aggregate,Bahk and Jenkins would return to all-pro performance. Hope is not a plan.
Ugly: Toss up between the coaching and the future.

Good, O line handled the 4 man pass rush pretty much all game. Why Wash didnt rush five and put more pressure who knows, they suck too
Bad, the quick pass theme to protect the passer doesnt work when your down points with 27 seconds to play and a whole field to cover. tough to change to things your not used to like down field passes?
Ugly, for six years that pass d giving up yards to a unknown QB who doesnt have a clue, neither did the pass d. Stokes is absolutely worthless, what a terrible pick. He never hurt he never tackles or gets into the fray. Weak link for sure. If we had real coaches he would be benched a long time ago, Gutt one pick or not.

Tyson Campbell may have been the more instinctive CB, of the two. Stokes with more speed, no technique.

Nagler, Would something like getting rid of Amari Rodgers be beneficial to the performance of the team? I mean when is the last time someone was let go for costing us points and games? Are the players too comfortable that nothing bad will happen to them? Ron Wolf used to constantly churn the last 5-8 spots on the roster. Are we "stale" do we need to shake things up a bit? Just fuming at how this mediocrity is accepted week after week. O-line change was surprising but protection improved over last week.

It is a pleasant thought, but if we started that program based on production errors, we'd be playing 7 man flag football in less than a month.

I agree but I guess my point is maybe the players need to see this is a business. You keep screwing up and you're gone mentality.

What I think is we need a PR! Known that since the draft. Next RT. Or should I say who's next?
You want to draft a guy in the 7th rd. And sit him. Whats with the thinking there Gutey! Wolf build his teams on Tackles and Cbs.
The packers have done nothing different than the pre-season. They've become accustom to losing.

The Good: Aaron Jones, Preston Smith, and Rasul Douglas.

The Bad: Coaches and the rest of team.

Ugly: Officiating, Amari Rodgers, and dropped interceptions.

Poor play is one thing, but the Packers continue to demonstrate a complete lack of a sense of urgency. They play like they are just going through the motions. There is no excuse for it. I don't know what the coaches are doing or why they allow this to continue. This team needs a message and they needed to about 4-5 games ago. Thanks, Since '61

Good point. It would be great if we could put Vince Lombardi in that locker room for a comeuppance speech about dedication, effort, and precision.

Our $50,000,000 mushroom chewing QB has learned to be more accepting of failure. Maybe our flower child is helping the whole team and coaching staff to RELAX?

The Good-Deandre on D. Dude finally showed his all-pro form. Honorable mention to Zach Tom. We may have found out LT of the future.
The Bad-MLF. His creative juices have run dry. It’s pathetic quite frankly.
The Ugly-Brian Gutekunst. His status quo manta right now of looking at upgrades at WR, Return game and in my opinion, TE, is alarming. No bueno. Oh..GPG!

Couldn't agree more with Murphy. And the really ugly thing is that he is under contract until the summer of 2025 - his 70th birth year! My god, 2.5 more years of this liability running the Packers!

Reportedly, GB has a very strange reporting structure. I read where MLF does not report to Gutes but reports to Murphy? If so, it means that Mark "Forest Gump" Murphy can influence the coach more than the GM? If true, his lack of faith in his staff is only secondary to his legendary stubbornness and utter contempt for urgent, mid-season changes. Argh!

So, no rebuild until Murphy leaves in 2025. Huge salary cap issues to ensue in both 2023 and 2024. But no worries. Murphy has his job until 2025 so everything must be roses for GB...

LaFleur is just devoid of talent as a leader or tactician. As long as he’s here there’s no chance to make the most of what we have. He should have been let go on the ride home.

Murphy got us a pretender, now exposed and that cost us and Rodgers a shot at as Super Bowl. Murphy them mortgaged our future to bring Rodgers back with a roster that made no sense.

This path was predictable in February. The ugliness has just started. The only thing that may help is to rip out LaFleur and play aggressive O and D with what we have. At least then the youth learn by playing and Rodgers has more targets and our DBs can just go after their man and stop worrying about big plays that actually are happening anyway. Change the culture now and start the mental rebuild at least.

The Bad: I only got to see the a little less than half of the game while we were leading and looking like me would finally break the losing streak and I had to leave for a car event that I was committed to attend.

Even Worse Than The Bad: When we got to the event, I finally got a chance to see the game result, expecting to see a Packers win and and I see a 23-21 loss.

The Worst Of All: Looking at our our next opponent and imagining more of the same...only worse. Just imagine only a few years ago, I used to feel badly for the Buffalo Bills.

The Good: De'Vondre Campbell, Rasul Douglas (at times), Aaron Jones

The Bad: Referee reviews that take too long and are incorrect

The Ugly: Offensive game plan. How can you say that they should emphasis the run, and then don't? How can you say that they will get both backs involved, and they barely use AJ Dillon?

Dillon has sucked, lacks quickness and has done nothing to date. also, Jones got his yards early but his stick of running wide would have been stopped at some point before the packers stopped it with short 1 yard passes.

The good;
I've come up with a good plan for myself to save me from the unhealthy feelings of anguish, disgust, anger, frustration and a host of other unwanted emotions by watching this train wreck trying to play ' Profesional Football '. I will now record the games, look at the final score, and the decide if I'm going to watch the game. I don't mean to be a poor Packers fan, but with amount of talent on this team (aside from elite receivers), there is no excuse for not playing better. I see our opponents, with less talent, playing inspired football. I see the Packers going through the motions.

The bad;
Aaron Rodgers, Matt Lafleur, Brian Gut, Mark Murphy, Joe Barry , Newman, Rodgers the PR, and a few others

The UGLY;
The 2022 Green Bay Packers

The Good: Oline shuffle giving glimmers of hope that the org is willing to try something different after repeated failures doing the same thing.

The Bad: It's all Ugly.

The Ugly:
1. Multiple passes off of receivers fingertips dropped.
2. Defensive penalties destroying explosive plays.
3. Amari Rodgers showing that he might be better as a receiver than as a return man and coaches not recognizing it for... is it three years now?
4. ARod throwing on 3rd and shorts in a game where no one on the team can catch the ball. 3rd and 2 I can remember sitting there watching the game and saying I bet Arod throws a short pass and someone drops it and sure enough, that's exactly what happened.
5. Losing a game that was totally winnable.

Good: Defense at least starting to get away from the soft, passive coverage. Jones at least got 17 touches and was productive (as is typical when he's allowed to be part of the offense)

Bad: If simplifying the offense meant less motion/jet sweep action, it resulted in 14 points scored. That won't due it.

Ugly: Tom Terrific and Tampa Bay is seated #4 for playoffs at 3-4 and in first place in the all-powerful NFC South. Bad luck: Pack gets to play the NFC east this year (worst team is the 3-4 Commanders) versus the NFC South (best team is 3-4)

The Good? My annual family Christmas gifts of Packer apparel should have plenty of inventory to chose from this year. So there is that.

The Bad and Ugly are much the same to me, and as some of alluded to it appears several on the team are going through the motions without a sense of urgency, possibly playing away from contact as well to protect their own investment and brand. I struggle to believe Lombardi would let the same issues beat his team again and again. Then again Vince didn’t cater to a Prima Donna mindset.

The Bottom Line for me = no apparent accountability on 1265 Lombardi Avenue.

Julius Ceasar allegedly once said, “put around me people who are fat.”
The Packer hierarchy appears to be “fat”, i.e., content—satisfied.
It seems like someone should be angry—throwing a chair across the room?
Perhaps I’m wrong? Maybe getting upset accomplishes nothing? But I would certainly feel better if I witnessed some Kevin Greene type of emotion.

MLF is not a tough HC? No Sh**. A HC "should" know when to get tough and when to use the velvet glove. MLF cannot do the former it seems. He's a softie. And this team needs - and craves - some tough love now. Rodgers should not have to be doing that in the media - he has enough on field problems to worry about. The HC should have the cajonnes to expose the truth himself and call out players. Or at least, bench the poor performers.

MLF must grow in his HC role immediately. He cannot be the "buddy-buddy" OC anymore. And especially with ACR. This team is predictable, soft, and unprepared to play a full 60 minutes of every game.

A good HC should be "seen and loudly heard"! Kicking a few keysters and taking names would certainly be a welcome change to see in MLF.
