Gut Reactions: Packers fuck around and find out against Giants

Aaron gives his gut reactions to the Packers embarrassing loss in London. 

 

  • I think Aaron Rodgers just sailed another errant deep ball to the sidelines at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
  • Why this team refuses to run the ball with and the offense through Aaron Jones is beyond baffling. 
  • The Packers defense looks completely lost on the back end. 
  • That said, I thought they played pretty well up front. 
  • The eight minute touchdown drive in the second half by the Giants followed by a 26 second drive from the Packers, putting a tired defense right back on the field, was the big swing in this game, 
  • It's crazy that special teams is the one unit that looks well coached. 
  • Maybe this will serve as a wakeup call for LaFleur and Rodgers. But I doubt it. 
  • Not sure why this team seems to fall apart in the second half on a regular basis. 
  • Thanks to all the Packers fans show showed up in London this weekend, even if their favorite team didn't. 
  • Imagine if they lose to the Jets...
  • Go Pack.

game plan doesnt matter, especially on offense, because rodgers calls the plays when he wants. 3 bombs after an 8 minute drive to go three and out and put the D back on the field. i know most of us remember that colts game a few years ago, same shit, 3 plays, 3 bombs, 3 and out. but with that being said, enough of the fucking end arounds lafluer when running up the gut is getting you seven yards a pop.

Lotta season left to compete for another NFC North Crown.

However, deep down, all Packer fans with a modicum of sense realize by now this team will, as they have for 11 straight seasons, be watching from home while other teams compete for a Lombardi trophy next February.

Time for those who keep peddling the ridiculous notion that this is a SB team to get to work, they've got a difficult task ahead of them.

When Aaron Rodgers throws deep again and again into tight coverage with ongoing futility, are there other receivers open on shorter routes whom he's overlooking?

Remember the last play of the 49ers game when he tried to force it to Adams with Lazard wide open? I don't know what's up with Rodgers - same kind of decision there - he can't play hero ball all the time.

PackyCheese, I'm wondering if it's more of the same thing from that infamous overlooking of Lazard in the playoff game. I don't know, and I'm wondering what other fans saw.
The thing is, there should be other receivers running patterns across the field underneath the deep receiver, and/or available for short passes as safety valves.
It seems elementary, but perhaps necessary, to point out that just because Rodgers calls for a deep pass, it doesn't mean he has to throw it deep if the guy is covered, especially if he's double covered.
So, is it coaches not scheming open secondary receivers? Does Rodges have trouble making progressions to other possibilities if his primary receiver is covered? Something else?
It seems critical to get to the bottom of such questions!

There was a third down incomplete pass where Rodgers attempted to force it to Cobb who had a DB on him, a safety over the top, and a third DB crossing underneath the route... While Doubs was on the right sideline with single coverage that he just shook on his in break.

Ball should have gone to Doubs, but as you know, Rodgers trusts Cobb.

Cobb has really impressed me at his age with his ability to burst up the field: but, at the same, time, I don't know if it's good for Rodgers to focus on him as much as he did today.
I'm interested in what other fans think.

You know my opinion. Bench him! If you have 7 in the box there must be free receiver if your primiry target is doubled (or tripled). But his rookie darling again injured himself (hamstring), while Doubs, AJ &/or AJD, Deguara, Davis etc was at least open. He sees only Lazard (who played good) and Cobb. Only good play call came on TD catch for Lewis, but that was play copied from Hackett.

We don’t have an alternative. Watson’s not ready as a true receiver and his hammy has gone now. Doubs was double covered and Lazard is a good 2/3. We left Toure inactive. They don’t seem to get that one WR who is a threat with the ball after the catch is not enough. Cobb was good today, but it’s pretty laughable when he’s being used as a deep target. But who else, Rodgers? Doubs was double covered all day.

This is basic stuff. At this point a healthy Watson is a luxury. Doubs and Toure should be getting regular snaps running actual catching routes with both on the field with Lazard, Cobb or both regularly. Watson is a gadget. He was always likely to be with his background and absence all of camp, except seemingly in laFleurs eyes.

If Cobb gets banged up, if Jones or Lazard does, then the true extent of the bankruptcy if this LaFleur strategy will only become more glaringly obvious.

If Payton us out there, call him. If Rodgers won’t play nice with him then tell him it’s Love time. Just maybe, a coach that can coach a QB and get tactical advantages in games might turn this around. LaFleur can’t even get Barry to stay aggressive fir a week. He couldn’t get Pettine to either, despite near weekly statements.

Same results……wide open receivers. Third string quarterbacks look like all pros against Barry’s zone defense. LaFleur is an idiot if he continues to allow Barry to keep this up.

Today in the press Rodgers has been asked about if "whether we dont have the right receivers for the deep passes?" His Answer was"That's a good point" will have to analyze. If at all him and lafluer look at the options it's clear other than Watson who is missing time because of injuries, we dont have a right receiver for deep passes.
If they are not changing the personnel atleast they should stop taking deep shots.

This drives me absolutely nuts. We don't fully utilize the weapons we have so now today ARods's number one, but why not have Toure on active as well to spread it around. And as good as Cobb is, forcing it to him when there is height/leap disadvantage is just pointless. It works when he's your slot guy your third down guy but not as your primary threat. Those passes should go to Jones anyway.

I think it's the combination of multiple things him not seeing the field well. Second there could be some wrong routes being run and third being minimal separation and that is why we see him over throwing it. The main problem for me are his screens and some deep throws being under thrown. Rest all are because of the above reasons.

Imo the past few years Rodgers has become myopic. He looks the receiver he wants to get the ball to and when open rifles it. He is not reading receivers at all. His thinking, do t have time for that
They knew he was going to Cobb and were prepared to block the pass and cover Cobb.

Here’s how you do it. Personnel you send on to the field, calls you send in to the field and a direct statement that if you don’t play in plan, Love will. It’s at that point, if indeed you are right as to the problem. Personally, I don’t think LaFleyr could out coach any team in the league except maybe us firmer acolytes in Denver and Chicago.

I'm not sure if I'm right about Rodgers undermining LaFleur, either -- but wouldn't it be good to know for the success of the Packers, and our equilibrium of mood?
My best guess is that it's Rodgers being arrogant and stubborn, and LaFleur being weak and an enabler.
That's why I would have traded Rodgers in the offseason, gone with Love, and kept MVS as the only wide receiver beside Lazard who is a veteran still in his prime.

Much of the fan base still wanted Favre when he was playing in purple. If you follow that logic then you’ve no business running a franchise. Today we saw a QB who isn’t as good, playing with less and fighting what he has. His remarks afterwards emphasize that he just can’t see reality anymore.

We also saw a coach who has lived off the back of Rodgers and and Adams and is devoid of strategic acumen or imagination. LaFleur us and imposter who can’t strategize, motivate or innovate. Nowhere to hide. No lucky win, just more evident that he never had, let alone addressed, a plan for this year and roster.

This is Favre in year 2 in purple but uncoached In any meaningful sense. It’s been coming, in truth these issues aren’t new, but the excuses are evaporating. A better, stronger, coach might have extended his career, but a less self absorbed Rodgers could have too. In the end, they made each other worse by letting LaFleur coast and survive and by letting Rodgers continue in his delusions unchecked.

That we had a team that would give up that type of value and we kept him at a cost of 50 million … maybe a generational mistake. To the majority who whined about the miseries of life after Rodgers, thus us what happens when age, rigid mindset and a bad fit with your roster combine. Love may actually be more effective with this lot, simply because he’s not as blinkered mentally despite less talent.

It would have been nice to go out in a high. LaFleur lacked what it takes to get it there while we had the roster. This roster has potential for the future. It’s not something Rodgers will be part of, except that we will still be paying him. Hopefully l, this season serves to rid us of the freeloader head coach as well.

I post my comments every week and usually get torn part over it. Rodgers is the most talented QB ever to play the game. But he is one of the stupidest QBs ever to play the game. He overthrows, underthrows, throws into double coverage and doesn't see the open receivers. I hate Tom Brady, but he is the GOAT. Not nearly as talented as Rodgers, but so much smarter.

I think they can be good, as we've seen, but they need better coaching. Look at Denver. Look at Giants. Packers actually did a decent job containing Barkley aside from one play. The reason why this defense is so bad is because the coaching is terrible. We were harrassed by the Giants but they don't have half as much talent as we do! It's all on Rodgers, Barry, and MLF

I would put Savage on the trade wire. Maybe Barry has neutralized his own safeties? Lazard with butterfingers. No excuse not to tie the game. Third quarter play calling still a mystery. Garvin had good technique on his rush. Right side of the O line destroyed by the Giants. Newman was pushed straight into Rodgers; both tackles failed to control their guy on the tipped balls. Daniel Jones played very well.

MLF may have a directive from sMurph to play the star that he’s paying. “I am not paying Rodgers 50 mill and letting him sit on the bench. How does that help my revenue? I don’t care if you want the other guy, you’re playing Rodgers.”

In that scenario is just a mid-level corporate flunky. He may be competent, he may even be good, but he’s just there to take the blame.

If he has b*lls, he should reply to Murphy. Either I'm HC or you do not have one. And than tells everybody on the press conference what happened at Murphy's office.

When he lose the position, and he will, right or wrong, he will be pushed to become again QB coach or assistant.

If he resign because he was not able to do his work because somebody else messed with, he will soon get the HC job elsewere.

That is the rule.

I agree, croat, that LaFleur has to speak out and stand up for himself if the front office is holding him back in asserting his authority over Rodgers.
Then again, if that's the case, it seems LaFleur should have been speaking out a couple of seasons ago, and at the very least before the team gave Rodgers another huge contract this past offseason.

There was a good chance that this year was a mistake for both the team and Rodgers. It certainly looks that way. It was a year when LaFleur had to step up and find ways to get Rodgers to win with less. I actually don’t see a single idea-contrast that with other coaches with lesser rosters and QBs. He even abandoned the run game at half time.

The only good thing to come out if this is that it shows LaFleur won’t learn, is oblivious to the issues. He’s the Drayton of Head Coaches.

The QB plays for the HC. If that’s not true, then the HC is a sham. I know what you are saying: maybe it’s true, but then LaFleur is a fraud anyway and it’s not worked for 3 years meaningfully, when it matters, and not working now. It’s just becoming more and more devoid of excuses and much easier to see against lesser teams.

Last year I said that it was obvious that Drayton made his team worse and should be fired in season: something I’d rarely do—to stop him taking us down when it mattered. I honestly believe that LaFleur being let go might result in a less bad season. The man is clueless before and during.

If it’s all Rodgers, it’s all LaFleur anyway. Hire Payton with a brief to bench Rodgers if Rodgers won’t comply. When you are charging headlong into a wall, a change of direction won’t make you much worse off and may just save you.

How do you know? It's just as likely he was hired because he was the guy who agreed to the part in the job description which said "do what you want, but keep Rodgers happy"

Or maybe not and it is all MLF's fault. We're all speculating here.

The Giants' OC thoroughly and profoundly out-coached Joe Barry. Giving up 27 to the NYG is difficult to excuse.

That said, I agree that LaFleur and AR are not doing the team any favors by passing twice as much as they run when the strength of the team is in the run game.

Barry has a stubbornness problem. He insists on playing a lot of zone, even though his players would probably benefit from more man coverage. There is still confusion in the secondary.

And then he failed to adjust to QB roll-outs in the second half. A Giants analyst speculated that Daboll might have kept D. Jones mostly stationary in the first half to set the Packers up for the second.

MLF and AR probably thought they could take advantage of A. Jackson being out. The offense refuses to be patient and content to move the chains when it should.... Martindale had the final answer with that safety blitz.

rodgers can change any play he wants. it doesnt matter what lafleur calls. when things are going good, 12 sticks to the game plan. to me it was evident today after rodgers threw that amazing pass to cobb in the first quarter, that he was feeling himself, and he wanted to keep that going. runs up the gut were working, and in the first half they used them to convert some third downs. but once the Gmen had that 8 minute drive, rodgers decided he was going to bring them back. and it failed. i hope that they will learn from this and adjust, because 12 sees the tape as well. but im afraid that this is most likely wishful thinking.

I agree that its hard to find the source(s) to blame. Sure, Rodgers is not Rodgers right now. But at least he has a resume of a great HOF QB. Hiring Barry based his resume was a joke and happened because both he and MFL coached the Rams. As per MLF, its easier to fire Barry now versus the upheaval of a new HC.

It’s time to stop hiding and face the truth that LaFleur will never win anything that matters. He’s out coached and out thought weekly.

Matt LaFleur was a dead end and will make sure that we stay in one until he is gone.

Desert the running game, hero ball 3 and out after the D has come off a 15 minute drive. The fiction That Adams ball is replaceable by Cobb/Lazard ball. It’s been there for all to see in prior post seasons and in games against weak teams this year. Barry comes out after a good first half and plays passive after LaFleur said that had to stop after last week, the same non effect he had over Pettine.

LaFleur has nowhere to hide. No basis to assert competence left. As long as he’s here we aren’t going to a Super Bowl.

Even thought we scored today and equalled the giants at 27 with time on the clock the Giants would've score very easily on this defense.
If the defense giving p 27 points and expecting this offense to score more than that is laughable

The key unspoken question -- underneath the questions about the competence of LaFleur -- is whether Rodgers is undermining LaFleur?
Then again, as you write above, Coldworld, it's up to LaFleur to assert his rightful authority over Rodgers -- as head coach over quarterback.
***
So, do the Packers do what the Badgers did with Paul Chryst and fire LaFleur early in the season?
Would a new head coach have the backing of the front office to be firm with Rodgers as to who is running the team?
***
P.S. Is Rodgers a grumpy old man out there on the field giving off negative vibes that suck the life out of the team; or are any reactions of Rodgers appropriate responses to frustrating mistakes made by others?
Is it possible Rodgers really has thought seriously about retiring the past couple of seasons, and doesn't have the passion and the patience to lead the Packers anymore?
I don't know, but it would be good to find out for the sake of the rest of this season.

I think Rodgers frustration (head shaking) is with himself. He knows that many of the throws he is making are not up to his standard. He knows when the throw was the problem, and when the route was the problem. His head shaking is most prevalent when it's obvious his accuracy was the problem.

Giants pre snap offense manipulated the Packers' D to be out of position the entire second half. Really a shame because from down to down the defense showed they could stop the run, but they couldnt get off the field on 3rd downs.

Offensively, the need to win in the air is a liability. The need to win with trusted vets is a liability. The first of two "tips" on our last red zone trip wasn't a tip- the QB threw the ball directly into the lineman's upper chest/ shoulder.

Ugh.

Yup.

All the arm talent in the world isn't enough to overcome, as you put it, the level hubris displayed.

It truly is a team sport, and all 11 playing together under a unified system will ultimately yield better results than 1 very talented man essentially going the lone-wolf route.

It's absolutely maddening because if 12 would just accept that his job is well defined and make the effort to play within those parameters 85% of the time, the offense could truly be impressive. Instead, he chooses to second guess and tamper with everything, and often ignores open reads because of his trust issues. It's frustrating.

The approach is literally the difference between Brady's and Rodgers' success over the years.. and Brady isn't even 3/4ths as talented as Rodgers.

Brady is far more talented than Rodgers. Not in arm strength, not in accuracy, but Brady is far superior in playing the position of QB. Watching him move around a pocket, hit the open man, and by the will of his personality motivate his teammates are the reasons for all those rings. It's not all because of BB.

All the accolades Rodgers has received over the years, not to say he doesn't deserve them, but they have fed an ego that at this point in his career is hard to tolerate. All the pouting, hero ball, blaming others, and excuses because he has rookie receivers... he simply no longer inspires confidence, and worse, he's not much fun to watch.

The not much fun to watch is key. Is there anything worse than big game Rodgers and his constipated play? Maybe it's games like these where he plays uninspired, dumb football.

It's time for him to quit. He already has, but he's too in love with the money or the attention to leave. Maybe he can come up with a nagging injury that gives his an ego an out & allows him to give his QB spot up.

Regularly moving their back in and out of the backfield and forcing the Packers to disclose their coverages.

"Offensively, the need to win in the air is a liability. The need to win with trusted vets is a liability. "

3rd and 2 at the NYG 7 and about 1:40. Good success moving the ball on the ground and Dillon in the backfield. I run that ball, keep the clock moving, and see how it shakes out. We all saw how that played out.

Even more basic than exposing coverages, the Giants knew exactly which pieces to motion to take a defender out of a given gap and create a path to daylight- often for Daniel Jones to simply scamper through.

Very, very frustrating day defensively because the Defense did a great job shutting down the run for the most part the entire game, but they just couldn't string 3 successes in a row to get off the field.

I don’t refuse to accept it. I said retaining Rodgers this year was more likely than not crazy with this roster. I am simply saying that LaFkeur is just as much the problem and would show this year if he had anything to bring to the table. He doesn’t. If there is a difference in saying that LaFleur is a waste of space and Rodgers hadn’t grasped reality (as a goid coach would make him).

I had a bad feeling when Rodgers called for a bigger role for Cobb this week. Not because if Cobb per se, he was good this week when used appropriately, but because it showed Ridgers just doesn’t get the fact that Cobb and Lazard aren’t going to take us anywhere alone and teams now already double civer Doubs (which tells its own story).

Yet again we went into this without Toure and Watson was just a gadget. It’s a doomed, fruitless strategy rooted in delusion. To continue with this will just be an ugly encore too far. My point is that LaFleur is at least as culpable.

I know...I was optimistic last week that they could turn it around and win the SB, but not with these coaches and not with washed Rodgers. They should bench him and start Love, honestly. WHY DID WE NOT RUN WHEN WE AVERAGED 5+ YARDS PER CARRY! Also the defense looks confused, but it's not the players' fault. Coaching 100%. We've seen that these players can be good, and we've also seen what good coaching can do for sub-par squads (see Daboll and Wink for the Giants). If this defense had good coaches, THEN they would be great. We have the personel, but not the coaches. Same on O. Bissacia is our best coach at this point honestly

If anyone thinks that father time did not catch Aaron Rodgers...

He become unbeliveable imprecise. It is now 3rd game with errant throws. Even Alen Lazards was pissed off after one of his throws in 4th Q.

And what was that with 2 batted passes on 3rd and 4th last Packers possesion?

If Packers catch the wild card for play offs we will be lucky.

This team isn’t winning it all. We have seen enough already, but I think is now getting to the point where the realization is widespread that we have seen the start of the end of the era.

The rest of this season is a swan song for an all time great who couldn’t adapt to changed roster reality and one of the least capable head coaches we’ve had in GB. He’s all Rodgers and Adams. He’s naked without his QB/WRs just doing their thing on their own initiative.

We could use the draft picks we didn’t get from Denver. Winning a wild card will only hurt our draft position. It would be better to play youth, start Love, but we will not. We will see more Cobb/Lazard ball impotence from Rodgers and LaFleur.

Again...

I said it all off-season.

THIS was the off-season to let him go. Denver wanted him, Hackett wanted him, he needed to GO GO GO! All the draft capital that Seattle received could have been ours and we would have had love on the clock to prove himself before his 5 year 1st round contract was up.

Really STOOPID organizational decision.

Same here, Johnny Blood. I was all in to sell high on Rodgers while the going was good...could've gotten a boatload of picks to set this franchise up for years to come. But, alas....the price will go down after this season. To sell high after too back-to-back MVP seasons may have seemed strange, but the time was right to do it. It's too late now.

I agree they will be luckly IF they can get a wild card in the playoffs. Paying AR $50Mil a season sure doesn't look good now. But its hard to say its basically his fault. I like his resume a lot more than I do some of the other "suspects" on this team...

Yes they should've let him go to denver. Keeping him is one of the wrong decision packer's did this season as the market for qb's is really high this year. As a result we had to pay him morel
Letting him go would've been a win win situation for both GB and Denver. Looking at the difference we have with vikings in terms of no. of wins in the division and also we lost two games in nfc. With stacked NFC east looks like it'll be really hard for packers to sneak in to the wildcard.

Yes the D did not play well but that was partially due to the multiple 3 and outs by the O. Once again Rodgers proves that he's only a 2-quarters-per-game QB – with the balance being hero ball. Also he is no longer capable of throwing a good long ball (for a couple of seasons now). So this is worth 50m per year? Ideally I would like to reduce his salary by 50% - this being commensurate to his real value and allowing Love to play half a game.

Multiple how many multiple can you mention...In the second half the Offense got ball thrice in the first drive itself they were in the FG range until that sack which is totally on oline.
The only drive that stalled and defense has to play is one that is the second drive.

So how many touchdowns and field goals did the Packers score in the 2nd half? A drive is not a drive unless a team scores. And the O did not score is the second half - so...

That wasn't the point you stated up top mentioning the "defense partially struggled becoz of multiple 3 and out's" i just stated the fact that there aren't many 3 and out's . It was only one 3 and out to absolve defense from any blame. No one is denying that offense didnt come up with any points and played some poor football in the second half. But giving 27 points to jones lead offense with PS wr's is even worse than how the offense played today.

The Packers were 4-10 on 3rd down efficiency and 0-1 on 4th down efficiency - so 4-11 overall - which ain't good. But that's what $50M gets you.

Say all you want to say. I was just stating the facts that in response to what you said above that there aren't many 3 and out's in the second half to absolve defense of any blame. There is only one. The fact is defense gave up 27 points to some random wr's which is lead by bummed offense.
When offense was moving the ball well in the first half even then the defense gave up 10 points what do you say about that. The secondary is all mess all night long. Gave up too many 3rd and longs. Do you expect this offense who doesn't have true wr1 and true TE and also two rookies to score more than 27 you got to be delusional. Remember that when we had a top offense in 2020 we were scoring only 31 or 33 points a game.
Coming to 50M yes who said he is not to be blamed. For that drive where we went 3 and out and when we went to tie the game we didn't run the ball at 3 and 2 are definitely on him.
But the main fact is year after year drafting high picks on defense and completely ignoring the offense isn't going and isn't going to help the aging QB when the def isn't playing to what they were told they would be this off season.

There was point in the 2nd half, we had the Giants in a 3rd and 12, and our d backs were playing so far off the receivers they were 15 yards downfield and guess what happens? No pass rush, Jones hits his wide open receiver at 10 yards and he doesn't get hit by a d back until he has the first down. What kind of defense is that? I would have fired Barry immediately after that play.

"I think Aaron Rodgers just sailed another errant deep ball to the sidelines at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium"

THIS. Passing the ball like it's 2011 WILL end this team's season. They missed their SB window in 2020 and 2021 to a lesser extent. Bringing back Aaron Charles Rodgers when they could have gotten 3 1st round picks for him was the height of stupidity. They'll make the dance. But when they get there, they'll choke again.

12 will piss away the season and blame someone else. MLF will fall on the sword.

They utterly deserved to lose today. LOL frigging idiots. The hubris is unreal.

time to clean house and rebuilt. unload high priced over-the-hill players. AR clearly no longer has the skill set needed. Yes, he can occasionally make an amazing throw but you must suffer through the long heaves to nowhere or the short misses. and where is Dillon for when you have 2 yards for a TD on 3rd down and instead put it in the hands of a QB who no longer can get it done. Take the dead money hits for AR and Bahktiari and start the long haul rebuild. and while i am at it, so much for all the hype about a new improved D. i suppose if you want to feel good you can still say we are better than the colts or the broncos, but that is the direction we are heading in.

Agreed. Trade Bakh, Aaron Jones (age concerns), and FIRE Rodgers, MLF, and Barry. Bissacia is the only good coordinator on this team LOL. Also, the Colts and Broncos have good defenses. We don't even have that. It doesn't matter how much talent is on the D if the coaches are stupid. We should be a top-5 unit but now we're not even a top-10 unit. Better coaches should fix the problem. Gutey tried to set us up for success but Barry, MLF, and Rodgers have shot our chances at a second ring down the drain. Might as well play Jordan Love

Did anyone else think we looked stouter with Nijman at LT than Bakh? Certainly we ran it well. Either he can play a game or he can’t. Platooning isn’t ideal.

Let’s just can Amari. We didn’t even use him once down Watson. His ball security is a liability and his returns not worth mentioning.

I would be more surprised, than not, if Bakh played the entire season. I get the sense that his knee is just being held together by string, glue, prayers and crossed-fingers. In short, he is just another injury waiting to happen - which would be most unfortunate for such a stellar player. However, I think his best days are behind him.

The Packers had a golden opportunity to begin a promising new era last season - if they had traded Rodgers. Instead, some of the "deep" thinkers in management decided to bet $ 50M on Rodgers. If this was a horse race, I'm starting to look for a garbage can to toss the ticket into. Also management's "play" has probably decelerated the development of the team.

Sometimes, experts are so removed from the real world that they do the stupidest things.
We should only listen to the experts if they listen to the people. At least that seems to be the essence of democracy.
In other words, it goes both ways. We all need each other. We're equals, right?
The greatest enemy of us all seems to be arrogance. It can undermine the best of situations and be the cause of the greatest misery.

Thank you Swisch. Speaking of democracy - I would love to see a yearly plebiscite from the Packers stockholders - on important questions regarding the GBP. Perhaps this would mitigate some of hubris and tone-deafness from upper management ("experts'). I know that I'm beginning to draft my "I told you so (about Rodgers)" speech - with Mark Murphy and his sycophants in mind.

Fire LaFleur. He’s a HC whose never had an aggressive DC. He turned Pettine away from a rush led D to one premised on stopping the big play. Do it for many other reasons, but let’s not forget that. Coaches set the tone for their subordinates and teams.
