Many of Favre's games ended exactly the same way!

Actually, so did Rodgers’ in 2008. That was why he had the reputation as the guy who couldn’t win from behind. The difference was that the O got more points earlier in games and was generally better. Their D was the Achilles heel, as ours was today.

I didn't see the D throwing 2 interceptions in the end zone under 4 minutes to go in a 1 score game.

Not giving the D a pass, but...c'mon.

Rodgers and the offense put up good numbers his first year. This team is not like that. Plus McCarthys team was showing some fight.
This is MLF s 5th year. With talent they blew two number one seeds. He picks bad coaches, sticks with them too long. They are clearly looking like a franchise headed in the wrong direction.

This was a winnable game for GB! Barry slept through the first half. He finally played his corners tighter to the LOS in the 2nd and they looked better. And what's with the stupid scheme of 2 down linemen against a team that wants to run? Just another usual subpar day in the office for Barry!

MLF made some good play calls in the first half, but not so much in the second half. I guess he and Barry took shifts on their nap times.

Did u see how, near the end of Q3, that as GB kicked off after a FG that MLF went to the bench to do xs and os with Love? Isn't that the supposed OCs job? Shouldn't MLF be watching the entire game vs taking his QB aside on the bench? It just reinforces the fact that Steno is not the true OC of this team. It also reinforces that MLF prefers to go to his comfort level which is offense only.

I'm not mentioning the so so special teams. Nor Am I mentioning that Runyan of course played over Ryhan. Typical close mindedness from Steno and MLF. With another decent run blocking guard, we might have run better...

This is a dysfunctional coaching staff at best- horrid at worst-case. They'll use the fact that the players make mistakes to mask their terrible decision-making for the rest of the season IMHO. It's going to be long rest of the season with these posers still employed!

Myers was as much a problem as Runyon early on.

This is not a good running team-
If Dillion didn't have his best long run.
The running attack was nothing more
then a diversion.
If Love is the new ERA.
No job is safe on this OL.
And Gute must use his picks on the OL.
WE need OTs and these guards must be replaced.
Gute tried to rebuild the secondary.
The priority has been everywhere but the obvious.
If you have No wall. You have No future in the NFL.

I agree with SH.....

Games are won at the LOS on both sides of the ball.

There is no way I'd want to see this GM make another pick for the Green Bay Packers. Sadly he probably will.

What’s going on in Wisconsin, Wauwatosa is banning Christmas decorations because people who don’t celebrate Christmas find them offensive?

Observations.....

The Packers converted an impressive 50% of 3rd downs.

The Packers cut down there penalties substantially.

You aren't going to win many games going 1-5 in the red zone.

If someone picks up Patrick Peterson on the extra point, this game probably goes to OT
What say you Bisaccia?

Without Dillons long run of 40 yards, the run game was pathetic.
Jones had 2.7 yards a carry? Really?
It doesn't help the cause when he drops passes.
We need to see the Jones who used to be a difference maker.

If your defense gives up over 200 yards rushing, you might not win the game.
Stack the box, make Kenny Picket beat you.
Kenny who?
Exactly!!

What was Love thinking on that last interception intended for Watson?
What was he seeing?
Did he not see Kazee ...at all?
That ball needed to be a touch quicker and a smokin fastball!!!
This isn't high school.
That pick was wayyyy too easy.
Especially with the game on the line.

Can someone tell me who the Packers #1 and #2 receivers are?
I don't have ****** a clue.

The Packers now have the least amount of wins in the NFC North. going into week 11.
When is the last time that was true.....in the 80's?

Welcome to the new improved Murphy/Gute Packers.
Good thing Murphy put himself in charge of football operations.
Otherwise all this might not be possible.

Nobody expected a Super Bowl, but, nobody expected this...against the cushy schedule this team has.

My apologies ahead of time....for the truth.

My overall impression of this game is that both teams are about the same, talent-wise. The difference was Pittsburgh is better coached. They take better care of the ball. They don't throw 50/50 passes when the game is on the line. Their defense doesn't cave at crunch time. They don't have a player stay in bounds when the clock is running down. They don't get an extra point blocked. They don't drop easy interceptions. In other words, Pittsburgh doesn't beat themselves. PePe LaFleur's team is the one who makes idiotic mistakes at regular intervals, especially in the clutch.

The real bad news is the pack have so many holes to fill it will take three years of quality draft picks not these 4,5,6 round losers who come cheap. Management has been fortunate to enjoy two hof qbs that allowed late round picks to play and save big bucks.

Another LaFaileur. It’s almost time for The Who isn’t worth bringing back next year list..
Besides the coaching staff, I’d include Smith, Clarke, Campbell, Savage, Runyon, Dillon,DeGuaria, Newman, and I’d like to say Watson, but he’s on a rookie contract and will probably be on IR most of the year anyway.
