In his last 20 games MLF is 8-12. Three of the wins are against the Bears. He has stood by Mennenga, Drayton and Barry. His teams have blown two #1 seeds in stunning fashion. ( Drayton/ Kevin King)
Add the horrible playoff costing loss to the Lions in that mix.
It’s painfully obvious the Rodgers/ Adams combo made LaFluer look like a real HC. He and the entire staff need to go at seasons end of this priming nucleus is to prosper.
Do we ever have the better HC in any match up? ( except Chicago)

"It’s painfully obvious the Rodgers/ Adams combo made LaFluer look like a real HC."

6 passing touchdowns on the season in 2023, to a RB and three different WR's, 2 of them being true rookies and the other being a second-year player.

I dunno, LaFleur looks like he's doing just fine without Rodgers / Adams so far. Maybe I'm missing something.

And the Falcons have a veteran offense?
This was a winnable game that MLF let get away. His refusal to fire Joe Barry is reason enough to can both. Love is supposed to be ready after watching Rodgers.
It wasn’t Loved fault, it was deep in the headlights play calling.
We missed a field goal opportunity because a delay of game.. he’s a fifth year HC.
Except for three wins against the bears , the MLF led packers have only won 5 other games in their last 20.
You need to raise your expectations if you think MLF is doing just fine. By the time he fired Joe Barry , Kenny Clark will be retired.

He didn’t do fine with Rodgers/Adams.. he choked away two 1 seeds, flat against Detroit at home on a win and in.
Kept Mo Drayton , costing a trip to the SB.
One opening drive TD in all of 2022.. he racked up a nice record on a three year Rodgers run 2 MVPs) . The loss to the Giants last year was among the most pathetic in the 2000s.. until the Detroit game which was actually worse.
Love it not going to be the problem.. he looks to have talent. The problem is we have a qb coach running the show.

A QB coach, you say? Like Andy Reid?

How does a team with 8 first round picks and 2 key FA signings give up 446 yards, allow a team to go 3 for 4 on 4th down conversions and get slapped in the face in the 4th quarter when the Falcons go for it on 4th down instead of kicking a chip shot field goal to take the lead? It's deja vu-- Joe Barry. And thank MLF for keeping him around.
And all the talk about Jordan Love playing great. I must be watching a different game. Overall, 14 of 25 completions (56%), 0 for 6 in the 4th quarter, missed a wide open Doubs in the 4th quarter for what would have been a TD, and used the wrong key word on the QB sneak in the 4th quarter. That qualifies as great?
Play calling by MLF was terrible. Granted, missing Jones and Watson was a big loss. But 11 yards in the 4th quarter?
I talked about each of these issues in the preaseason--and got a bunch of thumbs down. I don't mean to say I told you so, but the results speak for themselves. Fire Barry. It's too early to say if Love is the guy. The red flags are showing themselves. But obviously way too early to give up on him so keep coaching him up and hope he develops. MLF--hmm, has he hit his ceiling or can he keep developing? Way too many coaching gaffs and play calling wasn't anything special. Jury is out on him.
I know we all love the Pack and don't like to hear any criticism. But we also can't bury our head in the sand. It's one game. Next week will be big to see if they can bounce back after losing a winnable game.

Well, we've tried Defense with Barry on the sideline. We've tried defense with Barry in the booth. How about we try defense with Barry in a Motel 6 somewhere near Wauwautosa. We'll leave the light on, for you.
