Gut Reactions: Packers waste great defensive effort in Kansas City

Aaron's gut reactions to the Packers loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. 

  • I know fans and some media will make this game a referendum on Jordan Love, which it absolutely isn't. But that said, kid is definitely not ready for prime time. 
  • You know who else wasn't in Year Two? Aaron Rodgers. 
  • Why on God's Green Earth the game plan wasn't geared toward the running game to help a young quarterback making his first start will forever be one of life's great mysteries. 
  • What a freaking game from Krys Barnes. Guy was absolutely everywhere. 
  • The defense got THAT performance after losing Eric Stokes in pre-game warmups. Impressive. 
  • Rashan Gary's sack was so pretty. 
  • The Chiefs just blitzed the shit out of Jordan Love. He had no idea how to handle it and LaFleur didn't seem to ever adjust to it. 
  • Special teams. Yikes. 
  • The Chiefs held Aaron Jones out of the backfield in the passing game all day. 
  • I think I'm over Amari Rodgers as a punt returner. 
  • TJ Slayton did some really nice work, especially as he was probably forced to play much more than planned due to Kenny Clark's injury. 
  • You could tell Davante Adams was frustrated at times, which of course is understandable. 
  • Darnell Savage played a hell of a game. 
  • Jordan Love is going to catch a lot of hell this week, most of it nonsense, some of it warranted. The most important thing that needs to happen now is he needs to learn from everything he saw and experience today. 
  • Still in first place. 
  • Go Pack Go.

One Positive - the D played really, really well.

Patrick got beat badly a number of times.

Only ST play looking to be the only thing that can’t be “fixed” by players returning

Drayton isn't the answer.

The issue may be ... do MLF and/or Gutey even know what the question is?

The lack of a reasonable plan to move the needle on ST play is more than a beautiful mystery at this point.

Because the long term play may or may not be Love. Bortles is a known quantity, I.e., career backup. The kid had deer eyes but to be fair he played in a very loud environment on one day of practice with Adams and pretty little preseason reps with any of the starting WR.

IMHO this loss falls squarely on the diva QB1 and on the game plan.

I agree with all of it except that the loss falls on QB1.

Not having Rodgers could have been for any reason- injury, etc.

If FG and PR units did their job today, this was either a tie game going into OT or an outright win.

For what it's worth, I have seen a veteran Aaron Rodgers look more like a deer in the headlights than Jordan Love looked tonight, under less of a pass rush than Jordan faced tonight. It wasn't pretty, but he didn't freak out and actually made a few very heads-up plays under duress, like knowing where his relief valve was and spiking it at his feet instead of taking a sack or trying to force a dangerous throw (twice).

I was more referring to the ball placement and affect from the pass rush, not Dillon. He has shown remarkable hands and everyone who says "big backs can't catch" never watched Eddie Lacy either. He is ruthless when he has the ball in space.

i dont get it. laflueur. theyre blitzing the shit out of the kid on every dropback.... where is his outlet? wheres the short pass to the back or the tight end? i know love panickeed and chucked it up a bit... and alot was on him... but where were the checkdowns built in to help your rookie qb? this was abig a test for lafluer as it was or love.... and lafluer failed. there shouldve been MUCH more play action... help the kid out. naked boots. swing passes. where was the aaron jones passes? mike white for the jets last week came in and threw 14 targets to michael carter the rb against the bengals. where were the swing passes? they tried screens but love was getting rushed too quick and they didnt work... but i was hoping to see more checkdowns, royce newman i think just played his last game as a starter this season, by the way.

agree on Newton. He was beyond terrible.

The stench from Patrick and Runyon covered some of the smell of death from Newmans game though.

That might have been the absolute worst performance from an offensive line interior that I have ever witnessed.

Love deserves absolutely zero blame for the lame offensive showing.

Interior offensive line - 65%
MLF gameplan - 15%
ST - 20%

It appears they don't have the linemen to run a basic draw play, go two-back power with Dafney and Dillon, or Pro Sets with Jones and Dillon to present counters. What the hell is going on in Armani Rodgers head? Grow some or get out of this League. The tolerance for sp teams ineptitude falls squarely on Gutedkunst and company.

3rd and 10, not 3rd and 6. yup, you got me. it was 3rd and 5, then a 5 yard penalty, then 3rd and 10. obviously you think in 3rd and 10, with the game on the line, lining up 10 yards off the WR was a good decision. i disagree. i said our DB lined up too deep. they threw for 13 yards and a 1st down. game over. So instead of lining up close to the WR, he lined up 10 yards off him, like your answer said he did. our DB GAVE THE WR TOO MUCH CUSHION. that was my point, that i assume everyone understood but you, and if you knew football you would have understood that too, but you came back with a cute answer. but hey, 3rd and 6 vs 3rd and 10. woops. you got me! guilty as charged. but my point is the same, minus the 4 yards i missed. i say we still lined up too deep. cute answer comeback time......

Did you not see the laces facing towards him on the second kick? NO kicker wants that. Bojo knows that. Shame on the Packers front office for letting the other guy go and expecting the new guy to come in and play at a pro bowl level. Even Buck and Aikman knew that second snap was horrific. The ball never rotated and it threw Bojo off so bad he couldn't even turn the ball when he dropped it for Crosby.

November 07, 2021 at 07:21 pm

The first hold wasn't great, the laces were to the side of the ball which can drastically affect the drag on the ball. When he kicked it, the laces were pulling hard on the ball despite there being mild wind speeds. Plus, everyone said that was the direction that both kickers were struggling with earlier in warm-ups.

We can’t block for our kicker or punter?

I'd say some of the offensive struggles were on Love. he looked rough - bottom line. sure there were others units that played poorly, but to suggest Love doesn't own any of the abysmal offensive showing is wrong in my opinion.

I think Twitterverse and Aikman got it right last night (though I hate to admit it). it was a bad first game for Love. And a bad game in general for all but he defense and Dillon. and Cobb for that great contested catch.

I heard many blaming the blitzing and o-line, but KC blitzed because packers had no answer. I'm surprised they didn't blitz more.

I'll hope for improvement, and I think it is likely given we now have a bar in which to judge, and that bar is lower than many of us would have expected. we can sugar coat it and find others to blame, but Love isn't to be absolved, he was part of the debacle. Let's hope they and he grow from it.

I agree, but I think the error in part goes back to not letting Love get snaps with the starters in preseason as well. As a result they had one practice together. It showed. It was hard enough for Rodgers throwing to receivers who had no familiarity with him last week.

The interior OL was absolutely HORRIBLE all game long.

MLF had a brain fart of a game plan, ,but the OL interior just plain failed at every opportunity in execution.

Love was actually much better than I thought he would be. The insane pressure aside, he played well. Much better than either Favre or Rodgers first attempts.

I am encouraged.

No, this stupid comment is absolutely and completely on you. My God. Did you watch the game? If OL would play in that matter your beloved DIva would exit after 3rd possession.

You want comparison Aaron Rodgers - Jordan Love? Lets talk like this:
Packers at Saints 3 - 38 - AR stats: 15/28 133 yards 0 TD 2 INT / J. Love: 5/7 68 yards 0 TD 0 INT
Packers at Chiefs 7 - 13 - AR stats: Arrogant Liar / J. Love: 19/34 190 yards 1 TD 1 INT

Packers at Saints QBR: 36.7 AR, 102.1 JL
Packers at Chiefs QBR: 69.5

Similar games where Packers OL did next to nothing and Packers QB was under constant pressure. So tell me, who has better statistics?

Not to mention that only one clear mistake was made by Jordan Love. It was near the end of the game, I believe it was last Packers' possession when Jordan Love forced the throw to Cobb in the corner of the end zone. This was wrong choice. There was nobody in the middle of the field and MVS was 2 steps ahead of his guard. Easy completion and easy TD.
Unfortunately, I suppose Jordan Love wanted to prevent in field tackle so he choses to throw to the side.

Considering what we saw, Jordan Love needs some more experience, better OL and time to develop "chemistry" with available receivers.

The game was ugly, but not because of Jordan Love. He did max what he could at given circumstances.

If you want to be honest, for me it was looked like very, very bad game plan. Head Coach use your top 10 players at the their positions on offense and tailor the plan towards them, not towards opponent.

Three words: Wasted draft pick. This guy can't hit the broad side of a barn. He should have had 3 picks with one being a pick six. He missed so many wide open throws. The look on Adam's face is all you needed to see. Who thought this was a smart pick instead of adding two defensive pieces that more than likely would have brought home a Super Bowl win needs to be fired immediately.

Love wasn't able to step into over half of his throws. His coach failed to put a great game plan around him. Give props to the RB and WR crew, they tried like hell to bail out the horrid offensive line play. Also, Mahomes should have had several balls picked. So wtf is your point? You couldn't spot a decent qb and would rather chase a qb after Rodgers is gone. Let me know how that worked out for the Bears, the Vikings, and then just when you think you absolutely know it all... let me know how that turned out for the Chiefs. I know, I know, you have all the answers... just hope Guey reads this in time to turn around the franchise

He couldn’t step into his throws. I agree. I thought our pass pro wasn’t very good today….Love needs a little more protection to do the job.

Dillon and Jones had 20 carries for 99 yards. Love threw 35 passes and had 5 runs. I would much rather have seen 10 more runs and 10 less passes.

Same pass protection as in same offensive linemen, yes.

But Rodgers has not faced an all out barrage anything like what Love was subjected to tonight.

That's obviously because teams are scared to blitz Rodgers, because he's a wily vet, and teams are eager to test young QB's by blitzing them.. but Love actually fared pretty well considering the immense pressure.

Agree, you can’t run the line through him yet.

This was as close to a “free shot” game as the Packers were going to get to see where Love is at.

In truth it was good for him (and MLF) to get a reality-check game like this.

The o-line didn’t help him out with decent, clean pockets either this week.

Why are special teams such a mystery to this organization? It’s been decades. Likewise, round 3 selections seem to be really tough for us (two TE’s and Amari have not impressed). This game was there for us. The D balled out even with all of the injuries. With AR and just average special teams play we win by 20. If Love goes next week you can bet the Seahawks rush 7-8 every down. The game hasn’t slowed down for Love yet. Lotta career left though…

Come on man, you just didn't compare this game to week 1. If you take out Love and put in Rodgers in the K.C 2 quick questions, 1. Who wins? 2. Do you really believe that K.C going to send that much pressure, if its Rodgers? If you say yes to the second question, for me you're just looking to bury Rodgers. Look I get it you hate him great, but he is still a top 3 qb, and the best chance this current team has of doing anything in the post season. One last thing in week 1 game if we switch Love for Rodger does anything really change?

That Packers defense will hit ya. When was the last time we could say that?

I had myself thinking 14-13 win right up until Mahomes found Hill. Damn delusions.

Andy Reid looked a bit slimmer to me. Ivermectin?

The thought of the kid having the keys to the car was a lot more fun than watching the kid drive the car. Still, he didn’t crash it even though the roads were bad at times. I wish he could have driven one more time today.

Special teams. Jesus Christ!

Heartbreaking loss for the Minnesota NFL franchise today in OT. #skolol

14 targets for Adams out of 32 attempts and 39 drop backs. Cobb with 5, Dillon 4, Aaron Jones held 43 times, and WRs with 2 for MVS, 1 for Lazard. So, the preponderance and/or dependence on Adams as the WR remains despite a change at QB. 39 drop backs and 20 runs. ration is the same and wrong. It was 18 to 12 at one point, but passed a lot in the 4th quarter.

I was going to nitpick your description of Love, but I think it is actually pretty good. Not sure if Love could not see that he had to adjust the protection or if there simply weren't enough hats to put one on each KC rusher. Loads of defenders rushing Love and sometimes it seemed like there was one more rusher than blocker available.

Love would have been much better off with both Jones and Dillon in the backfield on the majority of snaps.

Both for run deception, lead blocking and blitz pick-up as well as outlet targets.

November 07, 2021 at 09:26 pm

TO be fair (but maybe not to forgive), I wonder how much of the Stinkeroo game plan is because this game plan had been developed for Aaron Rodgers to play the KC Chiefs since AT LEAST the day after the AZ game.

That's a full 8 days before the Packers knew they had lost Rodgers and would have to start Love, who would have been running the scout team, pretending to be Mahomes, studying KC Plays.

Starting Wednesday morning, that means MLF and staff had Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday to rehash their entire gameplan, get Love up to speed, and not completely throw away all the work the entire team had put into practicing whatever the original play concepts were for the previous 7 days. I'm assuming there's no time for practice on Saturday- maybe an AM walk through- as it's probably considered a pure travel day.

That's a massive stress on the game planning, coaching, practice and preparation.

AR was tested positive on Tuesday, October, 3rd, and he was not allowed to practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nor to have the game next 10 days and can return on Saturday if he will have 2 consecutive days of negative PCR test. As you know that was to short time to generate new game plan, and what I was able to pick up from MLF public conferences was that they went through the plan with Jordan Love and find out which plays he would like to execute and for which he is not sure they will suits him. After that they needed to share that changes with players and quickly establish reduced plan.

But none counts on the just terrible OL exhibition and constant blitzing with more than 2 players in blitz. Changing personnel on the field (like start to play with 2 RB) without preparation is desperate move and with new QB at the helm with low chances of success.

Love wasn't great, that's no secret. But he did enough to have won today. He made plays when he wasn't being blitzed with 7 guys against a line that gave him little to no help. Three plays in a row, Royce Newman let his man run straight through at Love. Can't win a game with that. He also drove into FG range, twice, only to have the new long snapper and holder botch both snaps causing Crosby to miss. On top of that, Rodgers looks lost again on punt returns after muffing one and he misread a kick allowing his teammate to be subjected to the other gaff that allowed the Chiefs to grab the ball at the 9. That's a 9 point swing. Also, Lafleur, please stop calling screen passes. They get blown up every single time.

I didn't see a lot of Packers receivers running wide open, and Love not throwing to them or throwing off target.
Even if Love was off a little in his accuracy, he may also have been forced to try some difficult throws.
That's an intriguing question for analysis this week. Did Love miss a lot of good opportunities, or did Love not have a lot of good opportunities?

Going in, I expected more from him: 2 step drops, quick slants, and lots of ground and pound. Dillon and Jones had a good night, but whenever things got going, LaFleur decided to suddenly start passing.

Special teams was a nightmare, the D looked championship caliber, which is amazing considering Stokes, Alexander, Z'Darius Smith and later on Kenny Clark left.

"You want comparison Aaron Rodgers - Jordan Love? Lets talk like this:
Packers at Saints 3 - 38 - AR stats: 15/28 133 yards 0 TD 2 INT / J. Love: 5/7 68 yards 0 TD 0 INT
Packers at Chiefs 7 - 13 - AR stats: Arrogant Liar / J. Love: 19/34 190 yards 1 TD 1 INT

Packers at Saints QBR: 36.7 AR, 102.1 JL
Packers at Chiefs QBR: 69.5

The comparison is irrelevant. Team sport involves the entire team, so maybe you should compare each player to their 2021 counterpart. If we were to follow your comparison to its logical end, shouldn’t we conclude then that Love will have a better career than Rodgers, and of course the opposite could be true because the comparison really doesn’t mean anything. Imagine if Love had to face Brady and the Bucs.

Its not Loves job at this point to read a defense, its his job to execute a hand off or a pass and its the coaches job to call the right plays to get that.

Screens sucked and no adjust. You saw some of what did work (roll out, quick pass). Love was rushed too many time (Rogers would not have stood a chance if he was rushed like that).

I don't know if Love will be a good QB or not, but he was let down by LaFleur which is LaFluer MO.

More injuries dont bode well to expect the defense play with any consistency.

Mo Drayton needs to do something besides getting angry with his not so special teams. Hell, everyone else does too. Dillon had too few touches as did Jones. Reminded me of MM, and not in a good way.

Love is going to be fine. He did some good things today. People seem to forget that after sitting for three years, Rodgers went 6-10 his first year as a starter. Special teams, on the other hand, needs some serious work.

I disagree. To many Air Balls. He missed badly. The packers did not convert a 3rd down, until 7 minutes were on the clock.

Id’ve loved to see the odd MVS go route - but I don’t think line gave him enough time

Yup, all the ST miscues changed the momentum of the game and allowed KC to blitz more frequently. Give the guy more than 2 days to prepare and this game ends very differently

1. Love our D & running game.
2. Hate special teams (please hire coach who can do the job), King's drop of an easy interception, Newman's penalties, and Leflure's inability to adjust to the blitz.

Bigger picture than the L is Kenny Clark and Erik Stokes if they are seriously hurt big big problem.

With a little better Accuracy Love will learn from this great composure I thought
O-line was terrible, but offensive game plan was worse
Special teams is beyond a clown show and it finally costs us a game not Love

The world is not falling until we get some injury updates

An absolutely brilliant defensive effort was wasted because Rodgers behaved like a chooch. Had he played the Packers would have won this game easily. The Chiefs do not look like an Andy Reid coached team at all.

Jordan Love has a long way to go.

STs are an embarrassment. MLF has done a great job so far but I don’t understand how he allows the ST situation to continue.

OL probably played their poorest game since the Saints game.

Rodgers may be a chooch but he obviously covers up numerous issues with the team especially the ST gaffes.

GPG! Thanks, Since ‘61

Yup. Be careful what you wish for, folks.

It was foreseeable that the OL would play their worst game. They were just pinning their ears back all game and often enough overloaded one side, and everyone knew that would be KC's game plan. As it happens, GB averaged 4.9 yards per carry, and that was without any really big runs. Consistently got positive yards: very disappointed in LaFleur since GB could have just pounded the rock.

Woody was 3.

Bo was 4.

Hence the MIchigan ownership during that era...

Love is trash. His mechanics were all wrong. Poor decision making & he looked like he’d never seen a blitz before. My Gosh, what has he been doing since in GB?? Diva 12 didn’t look that bad in his first or second game.

MLF certainly didn’t help when running game was effective then allowing JL to throw deep? Three times in a row??

A real wasted effort from the D we all have been roasting. Missing Clark, no less.

A winnable game lost. HopeThe Titans can knock off LA.

You must have forgotten how atrocious Rodgers' mechanics were when he was drafted. That's why there are coaches.

You try to make a decision when you have 5 people down your throat.

Bad game plan, and it all goes back to LaFleur for the Rogers debacle and the game plan egg he laid which is his MO and his inability to adjust.

There should have been 3 options, KC stops run, KC rushes QB, KC Plays normal. You clearly can see the QB rush option. You counter that with runs and quick pass and roll outs. You don't try to have a rookie QB fix you shitty game plan.

I have never one of those "FIRE the Coach" guys ....... But it's time: Our Special Teams Coaches have GOT to go. Now. All year the critics have been saying: "One of these days, STs will cost us a game." That prophecy has now come true. Inexcusable!
Sorry, had to vent.

Fire LaFleur to! This is far from the first time he has laid an egg game plan wise and this loss is on him as he enabled Rogers into his Covid.

Dude, you cannot be serious about MLF.

This was his first game with JLove. Therefore his first game where he could control the gameplan and plays like he should be able to. JLove is still a raw rookie.

Give them time to grow together.

...and get an actual living person at G and C instead of the ineffective speed bumps that were wearing Packer jerseys today.
