After watching the saints game , I'm starting to think  that o-line should become a top priority , Bree's had all day to throw, hardly any pressure on him all day. Maybe not the first round but anywhere between 2nd and 4th  rounds. Hopefully a guard who plays guard ,a m hauler type. Need to protect our franchise better.

Last year it was TT's fault for not having a good backup QB when Rodgers got hurt....Poor Brett Hundley went 3-6 and got traded.

Rodgers is back...maybe somewhat hurt yet...now it is MM fault for a 4-5-1 record.

Rodgers is also ranked 14th in passer ratings...

Our QB is having a terrible year...not $30M worth

I do think MM needs to adjust his scheme...use the RB more in the passing game. Jones had most of his 63 yds receiving in the 1st half alone...disappeared in the 2nd half

There is more than a glimmer of hope and it doesn't require running the table to make the playoffs, packlaw. In reviewing the playoff picture this morning it seems that 9-6-1 will probably get the Packers in as a wildcard, so another lose is not the end of the season. Add a win this week against the Vikings and the Packers hold the tiebreaker with them. With the way the schedules of the teams in play shake out from there, the Packers would have a strong likelihood of making the playoffs. As for winning the division, yes that probably requires the Packers to win out.


Everything except a first round playoff bye is still in play for the Packers and all it requires is for the Packers (4-5-1) to go to Minnesota this week and get a win against the Vikings (5-4-1). I see a lot of Packers fans have quit on the season, but I doubt the players and coaches have. The end goal is still there to be had and their is enough talent to achieve it. One game at a time.

Get that Ricky.  Philbin is the offensive coordinator.  If he isn't providing input why even have one?  They should all be working together.  Personally think there is enough blame to go around.  Rodgers isn't playing within the offense.  Some of the calls could be better.  Players aren't executing either.  One thing that hasn't been discussed is Rodgers mechanics are off.  This is a result of the knee injury.  In hinesight the best course would have been to sit him and let the knee heal.  Hopefully once it is he'll get his old form back. 

ughhh it's a damn mess let's face it.  Haven't been this down on the Pack in a long time.   Yes they are still in it but barely.  It's going to take a few years to turn this thing around.  Hiring a new coach isn't going to take us to the promise land next year.  New system takes time to integrate.  View this move as a setback in the short term.  A new coach isn't going to make me excited.  Looks like where we are headed barring a miracle finish.

There is a glimmer of hope we could make the playoffs.  Unfortunately, it requires running the table.  Defensively we are better than when we played the Bears, Lions and Vikes before.  Atlanta and the Jets are having a horrible season.  It boils down to the offense scoring TDs and lot less three and outs...not shooting ourselves in the foot with untimely penalties and special teams holding up.  Easier said then done; but this is why the games are played to see who prevails...The key is Rogers and the offense and now is the time for him to shine....

Then again we lose to LA and NE because of stupid, high school mistakes. I thought we hung in there with both of these teams.  twocents)

And the team loses to Seattle through a series of bad calls, poor execution and general incompetence. At the start of the season, who would have thought the Bears would be the class of the division at this point? Its why they play the games. As for the rest of the season, I'll be hoping for the best but expecting the worst. And, unfortunately, I don't think I'll be disappointed.

Watched the game tonight and I have to say it does not bode well for us after that.  I think  every Packer fan had to be rooting for Minny.

The Bears looked pretty good tonight, especially in the first half.  But hand it to the Vikes, they did not give up.  Made a game of it in the second half. 

My observations on this one are as follows:

1.) The Mack trade made the Bears defense.  Because now their best DL, Hicks, cannot be double teamed. He had a really good game tonight.   The Bears defense also benefits from the MLB Smith who is almost ideal in the modern game.  And they have two good guys in the secondary, Fuller and  Jackson.

2.) The Bears were so strong on the DL that the Vikes gave up the run.

3.) In that respect, I just wonder if Gute should not have gone all out for Mack, just to keep him away from the Bears. 

4.) I think the Vikes missed on Treadwell.

5.) I also wonder if Cousins was the right guy at QB.  If it had been me I would have stuck with Bridgewater and drafted a QB.  Unlike Bridgewater, Cousins cannot create when he is in trouble.

6.) Trubisky is getting better, but I still do not think he justifies that trade.  Both Mahomes and Watson have  higher upsides than him.  Those two guys are Pro Bowlers, while Mitch looks like a decent starter.  You don't give up two thirds and a fourth for that, when you could have had the other two guys for free. Bad mistake I think.

I would say the two schedules look pretty comparable for us and the Bears.  Plus they get LA at home. While we play them and Minny away.

Right now, its a tough road to traverse I would say.

Read the article earlier in the day.  No substance.   My question is where the hell is Philbin in all this?  Have no doubt MM and Rodgers will butt heads occasionally.  They need to get over it work together and get this thing figured out.  Plenty of blame to go around for the both of them.

Philbin is not the HC. McCarthy is, and he is going to run the offense the way he sees fit. Indeed, Rodgers is having a down year for him, but this situation reminds me not only of Favre getting "bigger than the team", but also Jeff Fisher sticking with "his" offense in LA. Once a new coach was brought in, suddenly the team blossomed. Could the same thing happen for the Packers? Why not? Look at Cleveland with a coaching change. Or the Bears. Or Minny. Well, OK, the Lions are still the Lions. But a fresh offensive outlook, and the Packers could be the next Saints offense. And with Pettine having his players having a year to buy into his system, and getting some new parts to add to the mix, plus a change on ST's, and this team would be ready to rock and roll. But it all starts with MM being given the chance to retire with grace and dignity, because he has earned it.
