Gut Reactions: Packers beat the Chiefs

Aaron gives his gut reactions from the Packers win over the Chiefs 

  • Always great to get out of Arrowhead with a win. Tough place to play. 
  • Alex Light was legit tonight. 
  • That game was all about Aaron Jones. 
  • What an incredible catch by Jake Kumerow 
  • Blake Martinez on that Kelce TD. Woof. 
  • Way too much running the playclock down tonight
  • Rodgers wasn't seeing the field tonight
  • Jamaal Williams isn't human for that catch. 
  • Neither is Aaron Rodgers for that throw. 
  • I don't understand how Pettine doesn't come after Matt Moore. I get being worried about Andy Reid as a playcaller/play desinger, but force the issue. Make him beat you. Send the heat. But this "rush four and play zone" stuff makes me want to die. 
  • Hands to the face giveth, Hands to the face taketh away. 
  • Hell of a pass break up by Chandon Sullivan. 
  • The Packers special teams may not be Zook-Level-Bad...but they're close. 
  • Aaron Jones is pretty damn amazing.
  • Andy Ried is an incredible coach. 
  • I love Matt LaFleur. 
  • 7-1 is a beautiful a thing. 
  • Go Pack Go.

What a difference with Jones on the field. They where rolling with him in and then he went out and the offense went flat. Then he came back in and it was on again. He's big time.

"But this "rush four and play zone" stuff makes me want to die." I thought so too during the game. But, Pettine was able to hold Moore in the second half. I expect he was betting Moore couldn't beat them if he started covering Hill and Kelce. It was a bet, and he won it.

Jones and Williams both had stellar games. Crucial play bu Sullivan. Heads up recovery by Lancaster*. Lazard played really well...I think he is the real deal. Graham didnt have any yac, hes slow, but he actually blocked well tonight. Vitale had a stellar block for rushing TD. It was a chess match tonight. Packers are rolling, LaFluer is making me a believer. Cant wait for Adams to return.

Scott was too concerned about trying to pin the KC punt returner (Tyreek Hill) to the sidelines. Of course, hard to blame him given GB's coverage futility and Hill's ability.

Great team win. I’ll go on record saying Kevin King is way overrated. His “good” plays usually involve a fair bit of luck and circumstance. I feel his praise should be tempered. This D is going to gonna need to stiffen up on the back end if they want to go deep into the playoffs.

Been super impressed with the offense tho. Go pack

Nobody getting open. We really need Adams back.

What happened to AR being able to carve up the defense if they blitz. We won but Reid out-coached MLF.

As usual, big games come down to turnovers.

Don't think I agree with MLF getting outcoached. His opening game plan worked great as it got them a 14 point lead. KC made adjustments in the second quarter and blitzed the hell out of Rodgers and KC took the lead. MLF made some great halftime adjustments and GB moved the ball extremely effectively the second half. Pettine however was super outcoached for the second week in a row.

Pettine is Capers with better weapons. If Capers had had the Smith brothers instead of Perry and CM3 his defense could have looked similar to Pettine's. Exotic blitzes, best men on the field, unique formations. Getting toasted on 3rd and long. Not really seeing a difference aside from Gute bringing in talent and depth.

I knew when I wrote that (Reid outcoaching MLF), it would get a lot of feedback. KC was down how many players? And if not for the fumble (and an all-star amazing catch/throw to the corner of the end zone), would we have won?

Yes there were many adjustments on both sides. But they had a bunch of subs on their O line and we still didn't get much pressure at all. And how many times did Kelce settle in between the zone coverage?

re: receivers not getting open - that referred to WRs and TEs. I have no problem with getting the ball to Jones in that case. I have been begging AR to do just that for years like many on the board here. But it would help if others got open too! How many times did Moore hit a wide open receiver after being given all day in the pocket?!

So again, for a team down so many starters, either KC has vastly superior talent for making the game that close, or Reid outcoached MLF.

Aaron Jones has become the focal point of this offense. The Packers did nothing without him in the 2nd quarter. Rodgers made some miracle throws again. Defense came up big again when it mattered most in the 4th quarter.

Need Adams back and need better tackling by the Packers defense. Pettine went for coverage versus pressure. I'm not sure why he never switched it up but it worked out.

7-1 at the halfway mark. On to the Chargers. Go Pack Go! Thanks, Since '61

Maybe you missed the whole thing where McCarthy wasn’t running the practices with the offense, and apparently also not following up with his assistants or ignoring their reports, yet was calling some plays that hadn’t even worked during those practices. Those were the ones Rodgers was ignoring, and understandably so, opting instead to keep them in good looks instead of just blindly walking into a buzz saw.

Reports not confirmed. When pressed Rodgers denied it publicly. Frankly, the split between Rodgers and McCarthy was so bad with Rodgers bad mouthing McCarthy that press reports of Rodgers jerk behavior went public, that's never happened before at 1265. If you followed beyond the score, you would know massive change had to happen before the entire organization blew up. Last year was an awful mess, and Rodgers does not get a pass for his part in it.

Flak,
Doesn't change the fact that the game had passed MM by. MM did not keep up with the game and not only that he lacked a fundamental aspect of coaching and that is identify play makers and put them in a position to succeed. Time and time again MM did not make the necessary game adjustments, and/or see player talent for what it was.

While upset with Murphy for taking so long to make changes from TT and MM I am so grateful for Gutey and LF. Things are really looking up and I will give Murphy credit after beating up on him for so long.

Events have borne out that Mark Murphy was the major negative factor in last year collapse. We still don't know what was going on behind the curtain at 1265. But two major factors that point to Murphy was Bob Harlan publicly calling and rebuking out Murphy after the former sports talk radio tour in the summer of 2018. The executive committee hiring of Gute over Murphy's objections in that same summer, and the committee striping Murphy of any control over hiring and coaching decisions after the Thursday night firing of Mike McCarthy. Think it is an accident that the Packers drafted so well after Gute was hired. Think again. Getting Murphy and his people out of the draft room and letting a front office pro like Gute do the work saved this team. We still don't know the whole McCarthy story, but it was clear he was burned out and him and Rodgers were not talking anymore. The rest about the game passing him by is garbage. Well, that's what I think. I 'll leave to others to decide......

Rodgers' good looks are often the ones where he ignores the open man underneath and holds the ball for 5 seconds looking for Adams/Nelson, only to get sacked.. which results in a bunch of Rodgers-first fans calling the OL sub-par and claiming no WRs can get open ever.

It is frightening how many Packers fans learned nothing from the Favre debacle. I'm happy that Rodgers appears to have fallen back in line for the time being. Don't be fooled. Rodgers is a manipulative twat.

* Just WOW!!!
* The Chiefs are the Harlem Globetrotters of the NFL; and their third string quarterback looked like a star, Moore or less.
* The Packers kept that tricky offense off the field in the third quarter by chewing up clock with a masterful short game conducted by Aaron Rodgers.
* Even with an emphasis on the short game, Rodgers still has plenty of opportunities to do the spectacular.
* That one fumble made a huge difference.
* I'm glad Aaron Jones is one quick and fast and exciting playmaker that the Chiefs don't have on their team.

Clock management at the end of the first half was atrocious. 50-some seconds with two time outs to try to put points on the board, and they completely wasted it. Ran the play clock down to 1, pissing away half the time they had, and then Rodgers runs the ball and cuts back in and slides instead of running out of bounds. Really bad when KC had just scored and was due to get the ball back after halftime.

I realize this is bitching about a minor detail after a great win, but it showed terrible strategy that could have bit them in the butt. If you're not going to play smart, just take a knee and don't risk a turnover.

Special teams... What is going on there?!!! Shepherd - my preseason fav- clearly not the answer. I think Since '61 could fair catch every punt.... And our coverage is putrid.

Defense- wrap up!!! Tackling is a lost art...

Offense-. Yes, KC was missing 4 starters ... But Davante"s impact cannot be overstated. His impact is like Hills... Pulls the defense.

He put that ball on the pylon at the back of the endzone and let someone make a play. Whether he was really throwing to Graham at the goal line and just airmailed it or put that one exactly where he wanted it, we'll never know. But I agree: great play by #30.

Most Punt returners return punts or at least catch the ball. !etting the ball roll to the one is unacceptable. If he is so afraid of making a mistake he should not be back there. Punt returners must be sure handed and fearless. Haveing one that can actually run back punts would be the ideal situation.

Yes, the pressure on Moore should have been a lot greater, especially with KC having their All Pro OT and a starting OG out with injury. Not a good sign going forward to playoff games. Pettine not mixing it up much like Reid had the KC blitzing with great effect. Hard to understand his thinking unless the cover skills are just too weak by his DBs.

Here come my down votes , Martinez was lost I know he had his hand clubbed but I don’t think his hand makes him pursue the wrong way. He has 8 games left as Packer , aside from post season.

No down vote here, but while I feel your frustration I also disagree. Martinez had some really ugly plays in coverage, without a doubt. But his overall production *and* availability are strong and steady.

It speaks volumes about his value when the Packers still struggle to find someone to put next to him with at even 85% of his ability and durability.

In fairness to our defense and the issue of tackling -- the Chiefs were so fast that I'm not sure we were able to get close enough to tackle; I'm not sure we could even see the super-speedy playmakers on the Chiefs half the time.
How did the Patriots shut these guys down last year in the playoffs? They were scary good, even with their third quarterback -- which made this win, on the road, all the more satisfying.

Without their starting OTs and QB....Green Bay should have been able to shut the Chiefs down, but they have a lot of play makers. Moore was releasing that ball every 2.0 seconds or less. How are you going to pressure him in 2 seconds?
I think Pettine knew he needed to to cover. They should have tried that more often instead of giving them the edges and outlets.

My issue with the Chiefs D is that they were going to be pretty one dimensional. Pressure and more pressure. Glad to see some adjustments in the 2nd half.
7-1 is just great!!!

GB defense almost made Moore a HOF QB which had me worried pregame.

We stole another game from the expected tough 5 game stretch and now next week in SD we get to go 4-1 over that stretch.

OL took a beating tonight and we're lucky Rodgers isn't hurt.

Adams return will help the offense move to another level.

Defense needs to find it's way...getting lost too much and too easily at times....bad tackling plays into that.

Good win....3 more and it's a big cha-ching cash out locked in.

It's frustrating how NFL games are produced and directed. Do viewers really need to see shots of coaches with play sheets in front of their faces between every play? What does that add? And, let's get that shot close so we can see right up Andy Reid's nostrils! A disturbing trend now is a split screen with coaches on the top half of the screen and field action on the bottom. Why? Could they just let us watch what's happening on the field between the lines?

Most broadcast teams send NFL telecasts to mute on my tv. Hearing the same-old-same-old presented badly isn't worth the aggravation. At least with Packers games I can listen to Wayne and Larry (the addition of Kuhn on the sidelines has been a paw-sa-tive), but now they're cluttering up the video feed with so many cut-aways, graphics, statistics etc (in addition to the aforementioned plethora of sideline shots) that it's no damn fun to watch. End of rant.

Good road win. Great to see the O slam the door at the end. Go Pack Go!

those camera shots are almost as stupid as the story line the producers force on the announcers before each game. Worst offender? Booger Mcfarland but they all, except Romo, do it too much. Got to figure out how to sync the Packers' play by play to the tv broadcast.
That said I liked the close ups on QB's and LB's in formation. Their eyes are moving so much to try to see what the other guys are going to do, I would love to hear just a few of their thoughts in real time. Now THAT would be worth watching and listening to. :)

The second quarter looked bad. Deer in the headlights bad. This might be a moment you expected a young coach to blow it on the road. But the pack gathered and started the second half with a stop and then a score. Big moment for this team.

Is Shepherd going to fair catch every punt the rest of the season? Take your bets.

Rodgers 300 yards and 3 tds and it doesn't even feel like a receiver even played. How good is this guy?

Aaron Jones seemed to want to show the Chiefs that he is fast also. He looked shot out of a cannon tonight. Lets keep seeing this!

But the Chief’s have a dominant secondary, so give them credit. Their front seven has been weak, especially against the run. And not to surprising in retrospect that the biggest plays came with an RB matched up against a LB. great game plan by MLF.

Way to dig out of the 2-yard line and seal the game--that's the way to do it!

A. Jones: Incredible! Highlight reel material on the Rodgers-Williams hookup for the fourth quarter TD. Loved the "flip" passes to Lazard--kept the chains moving.

Special teams: Scott had a poor night, for once. Need to find a good return man somewhere. I don't think the special teams are anywhere near as bad as last year; Crosby and Scott have been good for the most part, and at least the opposing punters have not tried any passes--that's progress in itself.

Defense: tackling was atrocious at times, but some of those KC players are as fast and shifty as they come. I would have liked to see Pettine more aggressive, but he obviously chose to pick his poison. We won the game, so I'm happy.

Early Lame Call/Dunce Cap: Matt Nagy and his Bears. What a pitiful way to coach and execute at the end of a game.

Great win. Offense - AJ is fantastic Wow! Allison is useless. Kumerow and Lazard made big plays and contribute going forward. we still need a #2 WR.

Not sure its all on Shepherd that we don’t have a return game ST’s return team is horrible.

Defense- we need to make a move and get some help up the middle either a run stuffer or an ILB. Best deal available but ned another playmaker.

Love what I see from this offense and so refreshing to see us wrap up a game with pounding the rock then a creative play call to seal it. We got something special going. Just need a couple of more pieces and we might be talking a couple of Super Bowls over the next few years. What a difference a year can make. Go Pack Go!!

Rules help the Packers too, so it evens out... Rodgers WOW! (he did see the field) Best spot passer in the NFL, no one even close. KC went to zero coverage, leaves one player uncovered. The QB. Rodgers made the Chiefs pay and pay and pay.. Pettine rights the ship after Andy Reid throws the 'kitchen sink' at him. Cover 2 and then 1 high shut down with Savage and Amos locking down Chiefs TE. Guts call with all that raw speed on KC side. What a mentally tough group this Packer team is. 7-1 baby! I need a (root) beer......

1st half KC was playing either 1high with a matchup man or quarters coverage or a straight cover 2 zone to prevent the deep throw. Worked, Rodgers had time to throw in rhythm and pick secondary target. Give KC credit. They play the game too. Second half, the Packers had their WR on deep routes, sending the TE into the voided coverage areas and gashing the LOS beyond the 10-15 with their slot WR and RB. Hell of an adjustment by MLF. KC could not find a LB/SS who could cover Jones or Williams, but Rodgers found them...

“Rodgers was not seeing the field tonight”

Yes, especially on 3rd down when Vitale was in the middle of the field with no defender within 10 yards of him and Rodgers throws it towards out of bounds instead of hitting Vitale...right in front of him!
He also seem frazzled with the blitzes when a veteran QB should be burning the blitzes with quick hitting passes to the open areas.
Not a good sign as other teams will see KCs pattern to blitz Rodgers and do the same as he looked unprepared to handle them most times. Playoff teams usually have strong defenses and that’s going to be a significant concern for this Packers’ offense.

You have to a) have time to check into another play, b) have a play worth checking into, and c) have a hot receiver who’s actually open. During the Golden Era of the Receiving Corps, Rodgers had the autonomy to ensure conditions A and B were met, and the skill players to ensure that C was met.

MLF and/or crowd noise took away A most of the time. And the skill players frequently did not meet C. We’re only left to speculate about B. But neither matters if the huddle breaks with 9 seconds on the play clock, which seemed like most of the game.

Great win. Kudos to both Jones, Williams and Rodgers. It's so refreshing to see this new Packers team look quicker, and the coach not call the same plays every game, so much so the defense knew the play before the offense got up to the line of scrimmage under MM. I know winning gets your attitude on cloud nine, but these Packers look so excited about playing every down, on both sides of the ball. They celebrate, you can feel the intensity. Are they perfect, oh heck no. Tackling is still an issue. Special teams is still an issue. I think Shepard should be traded today if possible, or trade a draft pick for a known return man/WR if available, then cut Shepard to make room. I'm thinking the staff might be regretting letting Trevor Davis go. This team still needs ILBs badly. Martinez is a good player. But not a coverage guy, especially with one hand. Plus another DL to help stop the run. Lancaster isn't the guy. Rashan Gary was pretty non-existent. Looking a bit more like drafting him where they did was a mistake. But we will have to give him time.

Packer football is fun to watch again! Go Pack Go!

Although Rodgers night on paper looked great...he wasn't....good but not great.

Rodgers looked human out there last night at times..."very" human at times and spectacular at others.

Special teams continues to be a problem. Change in coordinator has made no difference. Shephard is not the problem. You can't run with the ball if KC's gunners are right on top of him. Kick off returns were just as bad no up front blocking.
If this is the way it's going to be....just don't screw it up!

The OL has been good as of late, hopefully that will continue.

The rush defense is still bad. We are still missing some vital pieces and I doubt they are on the roster.

Stop with the zone coverage...it's not working. Use it judiciously not all the time!

MVS is not a #2 or # receiver...can't get open

Jimmy Graham can't run through a tackle.

But what the heck! The Pack is 7-1..I'll take it.

I actually liked the strategy of rush 4 and play zone, but I thought the underneath players were bailing way to deep. As the play went on they just kept drifting deeper and deeper, so Andy Reid was calling plays that were underneath but took a little longer to develop. This was absolutely killing us. Pettine did seem to adjust, and players were occasionally making plays on the underneath throws which would then cause touch situations for the Chiefs, so that was good to see.

The Defensive timeout with 1:08 left to go in the first half was game-changing. I don't know if it was to give Rodgers time or to help the Defense get a stop, but here's how the drive went:
Run for 6 yards, short pass for 7, incomplete short pass, deep pass for 21, short pass for 25, <2 minute warning>, incomplete short pass, short pass for 10, short pass for 5, <Packers Timeout>, incomplete short pass, incomplete short pass, <Chiefs FG to go up 14-17>. Coincidence? It certainly seems like Pettine gave his team some orders on that timeout that worked.

I gotta say that I just love Adrian Amos. Sure, he gets beat at times, but when he gets beat it is usually on tough plays for the Offense to convert (like deep diagonal routes that take lots of arm strength) and he stays close enough that if the pass isn't perfect then he can make a play on the ball. He is SOOOO much better than HaHa Clinton-Dix, even if he doesn't make as many interceptions. All Clinton-Dix would do is be way too deep and then catch overthrows, and Amos is a much better tackler than HHCD.

Trading away Trevor Davis has really hurt this team. I get it because I don't think we were going to re-sign him anyways, but Shepherd is really having a tough time. The Packers seemingly have ordered him to fair catch everything at this point and he's even making that look difficult. We saw some Chandon Sullivan, so clearly the Packers are searching for an answer at the kick returning position. Sullivan didn't look great. Maybe put Tramon out there for punts? That's one guy I trust to at least catch the ball. I'm to the point that I think we need to seriously consider cutting Shepherd. Maybe Hollman, Brown, Jackson, or Grant (or stick with Sullivan) can step up at kick return, but on Punt Returns I'm going with Tramon Williams.

Our kick coverage gave up some big returns again this week. The Special Teams has regressed greatly.

Allen Lazard is the future. The way he can block, his size, he has good hands, he can run CB's over that don't want to tackle...did you see him in that short passing game? Yes, please. And we already know he can impact the deep passing game as well. I think we won this game because of Aaron Jones, some moments of brilliance from Aaron Rodgers, Allen Lazard, and then our Defense making that big play at big moments to kill the Chiefs momentum. Like Aaron Rodgers said, the two sides are playing off each other right now. When one is struggling the other side compensates.

All of this said, the Packers are not a Super Bowl team right now, but we can develop into one, and I certainly didn't expect to be 7-1 so boy am I excited.

Oh, one more thing, more two RB sets please. I love when Jamaal Williams blocks for Aaron Jones. It's so good because Jones is faster and Williams is stronger. I'm Sure Nagler loved the FB block for Williams, too, and then Williams ran Vitale over for a TD. lol Great stuff in the running game and we're actually getting scheme TD's now (like the Aaron Jones split out wide catch against a LB).

Always wind up wondering what the deal is with the tackling, so frustrating to watch the missed tackles. As other posters have mentioned, this has been an issue for years on the defensive side of the ball with the Packers. Here's a thought,, if they won't/can't work on this skill in practice during the season,, at least draft or get guys that have the skill in place before they join the team. So frustrating, especially when you see other teams defenses that get the guy on the ground, quick, fast and in a hurry. But in any case,, 7-1 is way more than where I thought we'd be at this point in the season,,, Go Pack Go!!!!

First congrats on 7-1 and Jones, your the man.
Only two comments for me.

1. Maybe its me but this is like week two I've observed this. Seems like Rodgers is trying to do the Macarthy playbook, 'everybody go about 25 and turn and I will find one of you open' book. and that aint workin when you have linemen in your face in two seconds. I thought ok here we go again I see a KC route. Packers doing same thing over and over and the result is the same, not working.
Then the play calling changes to the roll out, pass short, run the ball, mix it up and the world opens up and even the Chielfs cant stop you. Its like, ok now were going to do it the coaches way and wow does that work.

2. Petine needs to go. They cant tackle and the pass d should be way better then it is. These guys have talent being wasted on stupid positioning.
