Here is the whole story

https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/dolphins-defensive-starter-out-for-season-and-nfl-players-are-mad-about-how-he-got-injured/

its a very bad rule that gets defensive players hurt in trying to obey it.

BTW, does everyone recall Jack Lambert, an All Pro type MLB for the Steelers in the late seventies, early eighties?

Back then he did not like the rules favoring the QB.  He said well, why don't they put ballet leotards on them if they are so different than everyone else.

Our OL is designed and trained for a mobile QB. Rodgers will regain his mobility soon, then the OL will miraculously improve

That was a dumb play by him that he got hurt on.

He is good and SF will miss him.

Game ball to Randall Cobb

So he can carry it around with him all week and work on securing it and catching it

I joke... Tons of respect for Randall Cobb. He gives it his all week in and week out every season. Plays through injuries, doesn't shy away from run blocking, takes a hit searching for a 1st down, always fights for the last yard, and as professional as they come. Tough as nails. Hope he rebounds against Buffalo.

What would you like to see? As opposed to what you're seeing now.

This year, if a couple of penalties aren't called and a couple of big plays go their way your perception would be a lot different.

Just as a point of reference: Look at the best QBs in the last 20 years. What do they all have in common? They ALL ran the same system for the entirety of their NFL careers.

I believe you're confusing scheme and philosophy. I am fairly critical of McCarthy's philosophy when it comes to how the offense is run. He wants to go for chunk plays and big plays rather than dinking and dunking it down the field. Too often it leads to them being down early and playing from behind. Even worse it really puts the offense in a hole on 3rd down, which has faced way too many 3rd and longs over the years.

Against the Redskins the offense just missed a ton of opportunities. The plays they called worked and they even ran the ball well. The defense was terrible in the first half and the offense couldn't get it together.

All in all, this is the start to a season we've come to expect from this team. Offense looks sluggish, and the defense is strong in one area and weak in another while also giving up too many big plays.

EDIT: Let's be real, Green Bay should be 2-1 right now. Season outlook isn't actually that grim.

I enjoy the optimism, but if you want to be real...the Packers are also very, very close to being 0-3. An epic melt down from Chicago (on par and very similar to the 2014 NFC Championship game) and a missed FG (make that 2 missed FG's) is the difference. Had the Bears made just one of more than a handful of critical plays from that 2nd half, Green Bay walks out of Lambeau with a loss. However, those "should have" records don't matter in a 16 game season, so at the end of the day, they're 1-1-1...not 2-1 or 0-3.

I'm not going to spend time being critical of player or coach, we've all seen it and have our own opinions. Reality is though, the Packers offense has not been among the league's best for 3+ years now. There is no reason to think that will change if you're running the same system and not investing in offensive weapons at the top of the draft.

Something slowed this offense down. Was it the loss of deep WR depth or the NFL defenses figuring out McCarthy's offense? I think it's a lot of both.

Packers offense got 2 TD's yesterday, 1 versus Vikes, and took until 4th quarter to score a TD vs Bears. 

Offense is going to need to pick it up to win a lot. 

As has been true for many years, the championship aspirations kind of hinge on having:
a) a competitive, solid-average-but-not-great defense, coupled with
b) superb, top-of-the-league offense. 

Early on, the offense doesn't look that.

Manhanled by the Redskins as well. I think this unit is our greatest concern. We don’t have the talent there to get us to the promised land. I have some hope for our defensive backfield to improve as the season goes on but the OL just doesn’t seem to have that potential. I hope I’m wrong.
