Behind the Numbers of Another Packers Playoff Loss

If you're brave enough, here is a look back at the stats and figures that defined the Green Bay Packers playoff performance against San Francisco.

Ouch. Just like that, the Green Bay Packers season is over. The defense brought the juice, but the offense and special teams units let them down as San Francisco left Green Bay with a 13 to 10 victory.
 
As always, and for the final time this season, we will go Behind the Numbers, with the stats and figures you need to know from the Packers' performance. 

6

What a performance by the defense, ironically, the side of the ball that many had their concerns about. The pass-rush was able to generate pressure on 11 of Jimmy Garoppolo's 23 dropbacks, according to PFF, and they were particularly effective on third downs.
 
The Niner run game was held to only 3.7 yards per rush, with the Packer edge rushers setting strong edges and everyone maintaining their gap responsibilities. In coverage, Green Bay also did a very good job of limiting YAC--something that this 49er offense does a very good job of creating.
 
It was a dominant performance overall, with the 49ers scoring just six points, including going 0/3 in the red zone. The Packers also held the Niners to 4/12 on third and fourth downs, came away with a turnover, and allowed only 4.1 yards per play.

6

Speaking of the number six as well as the pass rush, according to PFF, Rashan Gary led the Packers with six pressures generated, including two sacks. In short, he was a problem for the San Francisco offensive line, particularly their right tackle. He also blew up that fourth-down play in the backfield--which at the time seemed like a game-changing play. 
 
Gary capped off an impressive season with a dominant performance, and he appears poised to be one of the more dominant pass rushers in football for the foreseeable future. It was also a very good showing for Kenny Clark, who had a dominant season of his own.

10

A team's weaknesses are often magnified in the playoffs and can end up being the reason a team is sent home early. And that is exactly what happened on Saturday with the Green Bay Packers special teams unit.
 
You name it, and it has likely gone wrong at some point this season--and chances are multiple times. The Packers special teams unit entered this game ranked 32nd--although we don't need rankings to tell us they've been bad. 
 
Green Bay allowed a 45-yard kick return to Deebo Samuel, but fortunately, the defense was able to limit the damage. But the truly costly errors were the blocked field goal where Tyler Lancaster looked like a statue, and the blocked punt, where Steven Wirtel was bullied into the backfield. The result of those errors were 10 points given away by Green Bay. I also have to point out that on the 49ers' game-winning field goal attempt, the Packers had only 10 defenders on the filed. How does that even happen?

10

Let's stick with the number 10--the Green Bay Packers offense scored only 10 points. The special teams unit is going to take some deserved heat, but so should Aaron Rodgers, Matt LaFleur, and the offense.
 
Following Marcedes Lewis' fumble, the play-calling from LaFleur became extremely conservative and bland. There was little motion, play-action, or any sort of misdirection. With Rodgers, the quick passing game, something this offense relied on all season, went out the window as he began hanging on to the ball and passing up the easy completions. As we all know, this offense is at its best when the ball is out on time and in rhythm. 
 
Of course, we need to give credit to the 49ers' defense, we knew it wasn't going to be an easy task for Green Bay, but LaFleur and Rodgers didn't do this offense any favors either. 

5

This may have been the offensive line's worst performance of the season--although with Rodgers hanging on to the ball, he wasn't always doing them a ton of favors either. With that said, the Green Bay run game averaged only 3.4 yards per rush, while Rodgers was pressured 13 times and sacked on five of them. At times it felt like Rodgers couldn't complete a throw without someone in his face.
 
Without David Bakhtiari, Green Bay chose to keep Dennis Kelly at right tackle and move Billy Turner to left tackle. My guess on why they went that route was because Kelly had been playing really well, and they wanted Turner's experience over Yosh Nijman's youth. However, Kelly would have a rough game, giving up five pressures, and Turner had his struggles as well. 
 
LaFleur talks about putting his best five offensive linemen on the field, which I believe they did. But you can question whether it was the right move to go with a completely new lineup, which included moving Turner from right tackle to left tackle -- where he has had limited reps -- in a playoff game up against a very good defensive front.

2

Davante Adams had 11 targets, and Aaron Jones had 10 targets, the next most targeted player on the team was Dominique Dafney with two. Allen Lazard was the only other receiver who had a reception with one. 
 
We know that Adams is going to be targeted heavily in this offense, as he should, but the lack of distribution was another reason moving the ball was so difficult. Ultimately this goes back to Rodgers passing on some easy completions and perhaps being too locked into either Adams or Jones before the snap, instead of seeing what the defense gives him and how the play unfolds.

3rd and 11

The final play of the game for the Packers' offense ended with Rodgers heaving the ball deep downfield to Adams, who was double covered. The ball fell incomplete. 
 
Below you will see a breakdown of that play with a wide-open Lazard running over the middle of the field. If Rodgers makes that throw, then there's a real chance that this game would have ended differently.

Mgmt has a profound puzzle to figure out. Is the glass of talent half full or does the glass just have a leak right now.
I mean they look at the numbers and say wow, we really had a great year minus yesterday.
Or they look inward and say, wow out secondary is not good, special teams are horrid, receiving core is two people. one who may be leaving, the others unreliable, and the pass rush and linebacking is okay, not dominant.
My guess is its the former, the later means you have lots of work to do to fix things and admit things arent all that great if Rodgers leaves.

I don't believe any team in the history of the NFL has strung together 3 great QBs in a row.

Love is a player, not a statistic. He might something that has never happened in 100 years into reality, I suppose. It's just a little too rosy of a picture for me to accept.

The established and undeniable fact now is that Rodgers has tendencies that will not be resolved without either:

a) Rodgers leaving and being forced to embrace a new system

b) Adams being allowed to leave and Rodgers having to work with a new crew of receivers (like he did against the Cards).

This is neither new or prophetic, and it’s frustrating as all heck, but the other undeniable fact is that the current Packers now have form as chokers and there’s only one way to resolve this.

Coldworld, I’m going to steal that. “The past is no longer an option “.

So obviously true that it’s frequently forgotten.j

I have a question: why does your franchise need a guy like Rodgers if you can beat him with Garrapolo and Kaepernick and Ryan? Could the Packers be successful without a HOF QB?

We do not know what is going to happen but I believe Rodgers will not be our QB next year. His actions over the past year, placed him in a position he HAD to perform and failed miserably.

I personally want to give Jordan Love a chance, give him a year or two. There is nothing better in the draft or available via trade or FA. Remember, both Favre and Rodgers had their struggles.

Here's another number that is relevant: $50 mil. That's how much 2021 cap space they pushed forward to next year to give us that.

$40 mil would be the amount they are over the project 2022 cap with a laundry list of contributors unsigned, including 2 All Pros--Davante Adams and De'Vondre Campbell.

Adams has continued to be very specific- he wants to be the highest paid WR in the league.

The Packers should not, in my opinion, be the team to make that goal a reality.

I love Adams, and I wish him success at whatever team he finds that is willing to pay him over $27M/yr.

De'Vondre Campbell will be tricky. Do you pay a one-year breakout player like he's always going to be that guy? Or do you offer him a more realistic salary based on his performance over his last few seasons and give him attractive incentives for high play? Do not want to lose him, but don't want to make a long term, high dollar financial commitment and find out he just had an anomalous career season that he never sniffs the likes of again.

It’s going to be a very interesting off season. Adams counts zero against the cap overage. There is only so much that can be pushed forward, there is only so much that can be retained. If Rodgers stays, no contract will leave much to replace the likes of Adams, Z, Campbell, Turner and others. Rodgers has said that’s not a scenario he wants. He could also be without Crosby and Lewis, either could hang up their boots. In the end, it all points one way.

It's been pointing one way since the end of the 2019 season, and was doubled-down upon this prior offseason when the Packers played the fiscals wild and reckless kicking the cap down to 2022 to keep the great majority of the team together for 2021.

Two things happen if the Packers retain and extend Rodgers in 2022 and beyond:

1) I will be absolutely astounded, floored, and stunned

2) This team will slowly dissolve as long as Rodgers is the QB going forward, with implications that could erase the last five years of talent acquisition and negatively impact the next decade of Packers football

Many will take this as a personal reflection of how I feel about Rodgers. It is not. It is a statement about Cap realities and the nature of team building in the NFL.

CW…it does point the direction of a rebuild with JL our QB. That was etched into stone when Rodgers basically stated he doesn’t want a part in a rebuild. Yet he will want a 50M contract.

Denver has been setting themselves up for this move and are sitting nicely with high SC and the number 9 pick in the draft. LV is another interesting option. One with a lot of SC this year and the most in 2023. Just not as enticing number 23 draft pick.

I guess you cannot blame Aaron for being selfish and he certainly is. GPG

I see this the same way as you and Coldworld and others.

😎. Rodgers will be traded, probably to Denver, and this will solve quite a bit of the salary cap problem.
😎. Adams will leave Green Bay
😎. Cobb and ZSmith will be salary cap casualties.
😎. Most of the rest of the offense returns, including the line and backfield. Lazard, Amari, Deguara for sure, probably MVS and Tonyan.

😎. Other than Z and King, we can bring back most of this GOOD defense. Amos, Starks,Savage , Gary, PSmith, Clark, Lowry and Slaton are all under contract. Only Douglas and Campbell would need to be resigned.
😎. I would expect that we would look hard at getting some targets to grow with Love in the offseason.

He’s kind of farted away any leverage. We could trade him to Detroit and his only recourse would be to retire.

That said, I’m sure that ALL Parties will work together. Rodgers wants to go to a contender, the contender wants Rodgers, and we want value in trade and salary cap relief. Win, win, win. And Rodgers can make lots of money and start a new phase of his life with Shailene. Win, win.

All that coming together seems very unlikely. What contender is going to want him? If you’re a contender you’ve probably got somebody who could put in a better effort in the playoffs. Garoppolo is not a great QB, but why would SF pay for Rodgers when he can’t beat the likes of Garoppolo? Houston might want him, but then he probably doesn’t want to go there. He’s probably stuck in GB at reduced pay or retiring.

I totally disagree, if a team thinks they are close to a SB and have the cap space.You bet someone will go after him.

I was kinda hoping Rodgers would stay. Then both he and the Packers could say he played his whole career in GB. But I just don't see it for couple of reasons. #1 the salary cap and it is what it is and the Packers have to deal with it. #2 I'm not sure Rodgers can get the Packers to the SB. He gets fixated certain issues and he won't adapt. I thought in this game he might change his stripes to confuse the 49er D, but no he did what he's done in similar situations with them and the Bucs. He just isn't going to change.

I don't think "Love is the Answer" ( I tried not to say it). Seriously, I would considering trading a conditional draft choice to LV for Mariotta. Make the 2 compete and see if you can get lucky.

In 2008 Rodgers was set to be the starter, after a years' more seasoning than Love has had to date. He had played in that Cowboys game, blah, blah, blah. How sure were the Packers that Roders was the right guy? Not very sure at all. How do I know that? Instead of getting a journeyman to back him up they drafted Brian Brohm in the 2nd round, and then they picked up Matt Flynn in the 7th. My point is I wouldn't even think about trading Love yet, and I don't think the Packers will either. You don't know, and you won't know until he has a year or two under his belt as a starter.

How were we sure Rodgers was the guy?

We weren’t, but we were sure we had gone as far as we could with Favre. The word of the day was “groundswell “ as in a groundswell of opinion…….that it was time to try something new after the playoff failure in 2007.

As for our QB next year, we have a good group of offensive linemen coming back and Jones and Dillon in the backfield. Love gets first chance at being the starter, but I’d bring in a vet, too. We’re going to need to get some receivers on the field at WR and TE. Currently, our best TE is 67 years old and not a big part of the passing game. Our second best TE will be returning from a bad leg injury.

If Adams gets franchised; he could come back for 1 more year. But if Love is the QB. The possibility exists Adams could get a Million dollars a catch. Thanks to Bahk. The OL has been rebuilt. And his absence has costs us twice in the playoffs. Trade him. Waive him. injury settlement.? Just move on.

The cost of tagging Adams is such that we’d have cut Rodgers and others representing some 55 million in cap first - the current deficit plus the cap cost of a tagged Adams, which all hits in the year of the tag.

Think about the Panthers with Luke Kuechly and Dallas with Jalen Smith or Vander Esch. That’s a physical position that gets banged up easily. Like Smith, pay him top dollars when he’s on the field only.

MLF has to give up play calling and coach the entire team. He is an OC with a HC title.

He doesn't seem to have much of a feel for the flow of the game.

He handed the ST keys to Drayton and watched him flop like a fish on the sand game after game after game.

He knew Rodgers was giving up the quick pass game and telegraphing long developing throws to DA and passively watched the unraveling as other receivers were running free as Rodgers earned 3 and outs.

Kelly was a liability at RT and Turner was not better at LT. A HC would go to Stenavich and suggest moves, like Billy back at his RT spot and Nijman at LT. Do something!

I am getting weary of MLF, after every loss saying he didn't prepare the team well enough. What he means he did not prepare the offense well and got out coached as an OC. He doesn't seem very involved in the other phases of the football team....STs for example.

What if Rodgers just started making bad decisions? What if Rodgers just started calling out his own plays at the LOS?

I've heard people talk about how MLF quit using motion halfway through the game. That strikes me as odd, as motion is a staple element of this offense.. It's a staple that MLF had to -CONVINCE- Rodgers to embrace over the last three years. Rodgers for over a decade has eschewed motion, has stated on the record he feels that he can read defenses better from a static formation (which is unusual, I might add).. It seems likely to me that a lack of motion might indicate Rodgers was running the show at the LOS.

What can a coach do if his HoF QB goes rogue? Does him bench him? Does he call him out in the post game press conference?

I'm not claiming this is what happened, but I am always confused when people are sure the culprit is the playcaller when it comes to Aaron Rodgers. We know from past experience- even recent (current regime)- he often just does what he wants out there.

We will find out. If it’s Rodgers, maybe there is hope for LaFleur, if not he’s a coach who can’t learn and can’t win the strategic battles. Repeating the same mistakes thrice is grounds for real concern. Add in the incredibly poor choice of ST coordinator and refusal to own it snd I think LaFleur is more likely a false dawn. With Rodgers almost certainly gone, LaFleur might hang on gift a while, but my bet is he’s gone before any resurgence.

3 years in and he no longer gets a hall pass for bad design or play calling in big games.

IIRC this is the second or third time this season that the Packers got caught with only 10 men on the field when defending in their own half. Someone pays for that. Inexcusable once in the pros.

Excellent observation LP! I am thinking the same thing - MLF acts like an OC versus a HC! His record is inflated due to Rodgers and Adams. I also believe he is NOT a good listener as he is purported to be. Everyone from fans, other teams and sports personalities have called out the Packers ST comedy routine and its suspect defense all year! However, the defense was terrific in this case. There is a strange loyalty to players/coaches that MLF believes in despite regular, poor performances.

Murphy gambled on the vision of LaFleur to reinvigorate the team. While Gute built a credible roster, LaFleur has failed to deliver, moreover he’s made the same mistakes each time despite the roster improving. Maybe a more experienced coach might have squeezed us through. We will never know.

Rodgers has the pieces, but he couldn’t lift us over the coaching screwups this year and last. He’s not the player he was ten years ago. He didn’t lose us the game, but he’s paid to win it: that he clearly failed to do. Had we not had a ST coach that had no right being appointed and no business surviving the season, Rodgers might still be dancing.

Murphy chose LaFleur and LaFleur has not delivered, nor has he grown tactically or in terms of personnel management. Did the team fail Rodgers or Rodgers contribute to the failure? Who knows, but the buck stops with LaFleur for the coaching deficits snd ultimately with Murphy who chose him to guide Rodgers snd the team to another Super Bowl. That window is closed. The milk is spilt.

I'm not sure that it's a 2 year recovery anymore- there's a history of linemen playing after modern ACL surgeries in just under a year, but that is individual specific. I don't t think anyone who plays NFL football is a pussy. Those guys play significantly hurt throughout every year, while most fans who have an office job will take a day or two off of work if they lightly sprain an ankle.

Wirtel was an in season downgrade that hurt both kicking and punting. Yesterday he played a part in 10 points. He’s Drayton’s responsibility and thus LaFleurs. Appropriate to blame LaFleur for that as much as for again losing the plot in terms of calling.

The money placed on Sp teams blowing apart this team's chances in the playoffs, be it last evening, or a SB Game, was almost solid gold. Everyone was on board with the prescription of MLF dumping Drayton in October and trying to patch that leaking boat, but the "winsome" Packers stayed full speed ahead with a leaking ship.

I about chocked on that one. Sure, 10 points is more than what the defense allowed. That does not mean that it was enough to win. It does not mean that this offense had an outing that could be called even average.

Number of games we won when Adams was out? Forcing AR to look at other players was a winning recipe. But MLF couldn't force AR to do it. There is really nothing else to talk about other than ST failure though.
Since it is unlikely they fire MLF, I hope he takes a personal retirement. It's going to be hard to forgive him for letting this happen. He said "it's on him". Make it so.

I agree. If he couldn't do anything with this roster, he doesn't have it.

MLF probably has next year to show he can improve and develop a younger team. I doubt that he's capable given his laid back, passive approach to things like special teams. If he doesn't show anything next year, he'll probably be fired at some point in the year after next.

Firing what by all accounts is a young, talented, up and coming coach because your 17 year vet future HoF QB is a rogue presence at the LOS seems awfully short sighted / "bite off your nose to spite your face" like.

Everyone in this organization knows Rodgers is a problem to deal with and must be treated with kid gloves. It's the deal with the devil they've dealt with for his entire career.. He's a complicated fella.

If it’s really mostly Rodgers, LaFleur will rise again. Increasingly I have come to the view that it’s at least as much LaFleur as Rodgers. Yesterday it was, since LaFleur is solely to blame for Drayton. Without Drayton we win. Hell, even Zook probably gets us past that game.

I'm starting to wonder if MLF has as much freedom as other HC. He was FORCED to keep Mike Pettine. LaFleur tried hire a REAL ST Coordinator when he was first named HC with Rizzo.

Some have suggested Rizzo never wanted to coach in GB, but LOWBALLING the crap out of him and letting him leave didn't help. Maybe, just maybe, Murphy STONGLY suggested to keep Drayton. Hey I may be waaaay off, but I for one will be a MUCH happier Packers fan, once Murphy is GONE!

Agree and disagree.

I do give Murphy high marks for finding and hiring MLF, and it is just speculation that he is the force behind keeping Drayton. As a former player with a law degree and now pretty well experienced in leading an NFL club, the Pack could easily do worse (see Jerry Jones, etc.).

That said, IMO the results yesterday are proof positive that you are right about the Rizzo fail. The $ difference to move up and get a proven ST coordinator is peanuts to the Packers and doesn't count against the cap, so why LOWBALL?

I don't think MLF is that good. He couldn't get Packers to play a full 60 min of football for any game this season. He didn't fix ST though EVERYONE knew it might end our season. This year, the team regressed in many ways (red zone, 1st qtr). He will get his chance to rebuid now but I am not confident. Let's talk in a few years. :)

I strongly suspect that Rodgers made the decisions to throw to Adams and was not the scripted receiver by MLF. I would love to be a fly on the wall if MLF and Rodgers were to ever speak frankly about some of those throwing decisions! This is the reason why Rodgers needs to find a new home.

3rd and 11: That in a nutshell is why it's time to move on from Rodgers: he has other things on his mind besides hitting the open receiver. A reasonably well-thrown ball to Lazard in that instance might have gotten us inside the SF 45....and maybe we would have come away on the right side of that 13-10 score. And remember last's years NFCCG when he ignored Lazard slanting to the end zone and forced the ball to Davante instead?

MLF: Let's face it: he was hired to add new dynamics to this offense and be a friendly collaborator with Rodgers, but the latter seems to be the dominant tendency at times. His handling of the special teams fiasco cost us a chance to advance in the playoffs. Second half play-calling leaves a lot to be desired, as the team suffers too many three-and-outs. Maybe he needs the chance to get out from under AR's shadow to be more successful, but I don't know. Other than the hiring of Barry, he hasn't done enough to stamp his impression upon the team.

Very rare to see anyone explain how they differentiate between the play call and the execution of the play.

For most fans, if a play doesn't produce, it was a bad play call. The thing is, there's lots of good play calls that fail, and lots of bad play calls that succeed. 22 men on the field leads to a very complicated matrix of possibilities.

Is the play calling philosophy poor when there's too many 3 & Outs, but the tape reveals there's open targets, missed opportunities, or execution errors?

What about a TD producing play where the personnel group was utterly mismatched but a lucky slip of a DB allowed a WR to break free and get a reception that he walks in for a touch down? Does anyone say "that was a horrible play call"?

I'll break down my post for you:

"Totally. When you compare the success of franchises like Dallas or the raiders.. well, really... Every other team in the NFL to the Packers, they all have won many more games than the Packers over the last 30 years, because an angry rich guy is firing people if he doesnt turn enough profit..."

This whole block of text here? That's sarcasm. What I'm saying is that your contention that having an owner would put an end to poor football in Green Bay because he'd hold the coaches and staff in general accountable is a poorly constructed argument, demonstrated by the fact the Packers are the second most-winning team in the NFL over the last 30 years despite not having a single, rich-guy owner who yells and screams and fires people all the time.

"I'm sorry, this 'owner' thing is completely moronic."

See? The Packers don't have an owner firing people on a whim, and somehow, they've won more games than 30 of the other 31 teams, who all have owners. I'm telling you that this idea you have that the Packers football operation suffers because they don't have a single owner 'holding people accountable' is, well, completely moronic.

I'm glad I could help.

But it wasn't. It further exposed the fact that Gutes and MLF ignored the ST disaster all season and it came and bit them in the butt in the playoffs.

Before anybody goes absolutely crazy - what is the record 39 regular season wins in 3 years. Yes 2 division championship loses and now 1 Division playoff loss. But how many other teams would love to have that??? Now AR played poorly - but doesnt everyone think that AR and Lafleur regressed with their red zone conversion rate? Didnt that kill us against the Bucs in our championship loss. Perhaps the coaching and AR need to develop some more unique play concepts - loved the direct snap to Henry - why not Dillon? Now we sure missed MVS and Tonyon - and once the Big Dog dropped the ball - he never saw another pass. Finally - Jones never fulfilled his contract - pretty well all season and especially this game. He needed to break the big ones - that is why he got paid.
Next season - is going to be very very interesting - just look at the free agent list starting with AR, Davante, MVS, Tonyon Campbell Lazard, Douglas Patrick Njimon etc etc - That is why AR said he doesnt want to be part of a rebuild - going to need some creative accounting - and some give and take. And just in cast anyone was wondering in both games this year - Love has proven he is nowhere as ready was AR was when he took over from #4 - and that first year wasnt his best. I am not an AR fan for what he did this past offseason and the vaccination bs - but he is the best chance - and I dont want to see our team regress to the pre - Favre years of failure.

HUH??? Jones had 170 yards on 22 touches. He had 9 catches on 10 targets and had Rodgers thrown a better fucking ball, maybe he would have scored. When you pay a guy $38 Million a season, can't he put it on the inside shoulder instead of the outside one?

Jones had to slow, adjust, KEEP his feet on a slick field, and then start running again. Aaron Jones WASN'T the problem Saturday night. That throw by Rodgers, the 3rd and 11 play IGNORING Lazard, the TWO passes attempted to Cobb, EQ, and Lazard ALL NIGHT, and Mo "How In the Hell are you a ST Coordinator" Drayton or any coach for that matter were the issues.

Come on - yes the ball could have been better - but that was a long throw after escaping the pocket - some said Jones should have cut it inside. Jones only got 3 yards a carry for 41 yards - not a winning amount. If you take the 75 yarder out of his receiving - he only got 7 yards per catch. So AR Jones Bak etc all didnt earn their paychecks. And I agree - Lafleur should have removed Drayton much earlier in the year - and if you can fix pass and field goal protection with 2 weeks off - WTF!!!

I understand why you're saying and some of it I agree with. BUT, I thought Jones did a excellent job, especially after Dillon was injured.

He couldn't cut it inside IMO, there were two defenders coming from that side with the angle. I've heard some say he should have gone out of bounds which I understand.

NO, Bakhtiari didn't earn his check, but that was beyond what he could control. He's an investment who will be here next year and they year after...At least. I have no idea what is wrong with his knee, but whatever it is, I wouldn't doubt he has a third surgery with more clean up because something is WRONG, still, with that knee.

The guys on special teams aren't making a boatload of money. You pay Rodgers that much because he is supposed to make everyone around him better. Did he do that? Did he get the ball out of his hands and make the O-line look good? Did he make mediocre wide receivers look good, or did he ignore them? Davante is so good he makes any QB a success. For what Rodgers gets paid, he needs to make everyone around him look good. He hasn't done that for years. He hasn't even been all that interested in trying to work with pass catchers that don't meet his exacting standards. And that is great, no problem, but then take a 50% pay cut so the Packers can afford to field a decent defense AND give you the caliber of receivers you want, because as long as we live in a salary cap world, if you get paid like he does, you need to step up and deliver.

Of course the blame is on Rodgers, you hype yourself up all year, then get bounced in the divisional. The primadonna threw a fit in the offseason saying he wanted more say. They went out and got "your guy" in Randall Cobb and he proceeded to not throw Randall Cobb the ball all night long. I went to bat for this asshat all season long but I've been let down to many times to take his bullshit any longer. When you throw 0 passing TDs in a divisional game after you went on a 2x MVP run you get all the blame, AGAINST JIMMY GAROPOLLO. Its that simple, the guy cant get it done so its time to move on. Sure the special teams gave up a 10 point swing, but our "MVP" quarterback failed to throw a TD pass or even throw it to a receiver other than those named Davante Adams

The main problem here is that many fans do not know who to blame for this epic meltdown...

Is it Murphy? I read from other posts that Murphy (+Ball) did not want to pay Ricco. We do not know that. There are rumors, but every rumor is not the truth. Sometimes rumors are produced from interested party. We should be careful in taking rumors as real, truthful info.

Lets say, MLF got the job, but he was not allowed to pick his own personnel to some extend, not to get People he wants. Why, than you accept that job. You might trade with your employer - OK, I will keep Mike Pettine, but you have to hire Rizzo as ST coordinator. Than, if I need to lick ass to Aaron Rodgers, I need double pay or whatever else.

Let say Aaron Rodgers change the plays and do not pay much attention of play-calling. Yes, MLF should warned him with arguments, lets say through 3 games 5 times, if not help, go to Murphy and Brian Gutekunst and say: "I'm resining as there is not possibility for me to coach this team. Your HOF QB does not listen me, do not respect game plan and play-calling, Sorry, but it is how it is!" And than gave them a time to either solve the situation or to find another HC, but not to long. Ask for right to discipline any player, including starting QB. If necessary, by putting him on the bench. That would do coach with balls.

But, if it is not as many of you assume, than I have opinion that MLF is not good HC. He is, indeed, cheerleader, not HC.

Any player can get contract - base one. Negotiable only should be performance incentives. That is how you keep your cap healthy and getting the best from players. And have no problems to cut them if they become problems.

My opinion is that MLF is obsessed by Aaron Rodgers and gave him to much responsibilities. I think it is good for team that QB is on the game plan meetings, but not to lead the discussion or force his idea to the others. I'm afraid that MLF allowed that to AR. That is why it looks like Packers never adapt or change game plan in the games.

Also, I really resent MLF that he never prepare 2 game plans, one for 1st QB and second one, in case of unwilling event, for his back-up. This back-up plan can be reduced by number of plays and variations and may include some plays from main game plan. We saw that that is not happening. That baffles me also.

And one important thing - many of you are saying that D WIN THE CHAMPIONSHIP. On Sunday we learned that D CAN NOT WIN THE CHAMPIONSHIP IF THERE ARE OFFENSE AND ST READY TO SCREW THE PLAN!

Poor coaching decisions with the Packers starting OL caused a very well coached SF D to tee off and kick their ass! Yes Rodgers made some poor decisions on Saturday night but you know he probably is the f---ing MVP of the NFL again this year! So now what?

Well said...thank you...For those on this site that continue to blast Rogers...how quite are they now? Our MVP QB...he's gone. Love will take over the reins and those that vilified Rogers will kicking their dog til it's dead...and then some. M.L. and B.K. lost this game. Drayton most definitely lost this game and now GreenBay has lost an MVP QB....awesome start for 2022.

The hatred towards Rogers is undeniable and frankly unbelievable. GreenBay has a hall of fame QB and the talk here is,..."he ruined our chances for a conference Championship/Superbowl." There should be only one topic of discussion as to what the heck happened Saturday night, why we lost this game. The special teams coach is lost, obviously in a position way over his abilities. All season long this has been a glaring issue. Now, whether this is a LaFleur decision, or Gutekunst issue lay the blame there. ALL SEASON! Did ya think this was going to fix itself? Good grief at one point this knuckle head had only ten players on the field.....peewee football teams are better prepared than this circus act....SERIOUSLY! Ten points....10pts. This guy (Drayton) cost us the game and regardless everybody on this site blames Rogers. Besides Drayton, how about LaFleur and Gutekunst taking the real heat for this. All season long nothing was done to fix this obvious weakness. Everybody and their dog knew special teams were a disaster. Do ya think the 49's knew this,..... as well as the rest of the NFL? So let Rogers walk, as he probably will. Next year all the complaints about Love and how he can't read a defense, throw a quick slant or hit the broadside of a barn will fill these pages. There’s plenty of blame for Saturdays loss but to place this on Rogers alone is ridiculous. In a playoff game as tight as they should be, being incompetent and giving up ten points is a game changer…..or no.

Final thought...when the HOF QB leaves GreenBay and Love becomes the QB we seen him to be..have Gutekunst reach out to Kaepernick he's looking for work.
