Hiring Drayton(a subordinate of a loser)was poor judgement.

Stubbornly retaining the coach of the worst ST in the NFL and jeopardizing our chances for a Super Bowl is foolhardy.

Our players are clearly poorly coached by Draytons crew.

The good and the bad are over shadowed by special teams that are going to cost the Packers the season.

Good: MVS had a great game. Aaron made a number of beautiful throws to his guys.

Bad: Our ST was bad...the good thing on this ranking was they weren't ugly

Ugly: Limp dick football. C'mon what was that final few minutes? Playing not to lose was the thing that killed us during the MM era. All gas no F'n brake was supposed to be our mantra MLF. But you also have to play smart football. If you are gonna burn clock, burn clock.

Good - not a lot. Rodger misses open guys, running game was so so, O line did okay considering
bad - Pass d again. Every week its my bad and every week they are playing the same dam pass d. Stokes plays off so far it allows running qb's to get an easy 10 running or passing
Ugly - the fact we lose Clark - another injury prone guy (this team is full of them) and our pass d goes in the tank like he is the only one who can put pressure up the middle. The overall effort by our defense is not 11-3 football

Not to mention the fact that Clark has missed only about a game and a half per season during his six year career, so he could hardly be called "injury prone" even if he was injured, which he wasn't. But some people write what they write because of their agenda, and not because of facts.

LOL....DUDE, I feel so sorry for your wife or significant other...

Rodgers completed 74.2% of his passes so EXACTLY how many guys did he miss. BTW...Rodgers has a better overall completion percentage than YOUR BOY Kirk Cousins.

Stokes is a ROOKIE and has been pretty impressive as the season has gone on. Did you WATCH the 2 point try?

The Packers ARE A TOP 10 DEFENSE!. You can be critical of the play calling at the end of the game in the Gold Zone and after the Ravens made it 31-24 but the offense, in particular the playing calling did the Packers defense no favors.

"Rodgers completed 74.2%..."

lol ... yup. And If Rodgers could maintain that same fantastic completion percentage for a whole season, he would have the 3rd highest completion percentage in NFL history.

No point in arguing with the trolls, Nick. ;)

This O-Line continues to impress—Wow!
Chandon Sullivan does not give a high degree of comfort level.
It’s very clear what Kenny Clark means to this team.
Merry Christmas y’all !!!

It's been awhile since I've gotten in on one of these.

Good: Rodgers, MVS, BIG DAWG, Jones and Dillon.

Bad: Offensive line letting two of the 3 rushers hit Rodgers at the same time when there was 6 blockers, and leaving him under fire a lot today,

Ugly: Special teams and defense/defensive adjustments or lack thereof. The defense, albeit without its 3 best players, did not hold up well. Tyler Huntley was allowed to dink and dunk up and down the field with virtually no adjustments made despite him going to one receiver every single play. No press coverage despite crossing routes on every play, no double teaming their only true weapon, no rush lane discipline allowing Huntley to run wild late in the game, no adjustments whatsoever. The defense gave up 30+ points for the third consecutive game and 28+ for the 4th time in as many weeks. This wasn't all due to special teams, but 3 more special teams penalties, as well as one of the most blatant kick catch interference penalties I've ever seen. When will this nightmare end?

That penalty on the punt sealed Drayton's fate. Sideline cam caught MLF in a look down at Drayton that was pure disgust. Drayton is gone. Likely not this season, but he's gone.

The good: MVS, Davante (as usual), Keke, NO NEW INJURIES!

The bad: Gary (mostly overrun the edge he was need to contain), Savage, hero balls from AR (out of timing and low precision)

The ugly: Some players on ST (looking at you Yiadom!), Drayton for not kick in the a*s Yiadom after running into fair catch returner, zebras with no holding penalties on Gary on every snap

Rodgers ok…needs to practice for timing
Can anyone tell me why they don’t be more creative with the run instead of UP THE FUCKING MIDDLE every play?

The Good: Rodgers, Nijman, Aaron Jones, MVS, Stokes, Big Dog Lewis.

The Bad: Savage (albeit lack of support provided by Barry to defend Ravens' TE Mark Andrews. (Why is that so many teams are able to enjoy season-long pass plays against the Packers' secondary as Andrews accomplished with his 40+ catch!?) Kelly missed two key pass blocks.

The Ugly: Special Teams play. Get Drayton some help or fire him after New Year's. The Packers should be able to field enough good players to shore up the worst unit on the team. Green Bay is too good of a team overall to be the worst in the NFL (or is it second-worst) on Special Teams. How long does MLF allow the rot to continue???

SPECIAL HIDEOUS CITATION TO: Troy Aikman who hates the Packers and is always ready to trash the team despite a veil of fairness that he projects. At least Collinsworth is merely befuddled.

I've never understood the hate for Aikman, and I listen closely cuz I know about how much hate many Packer fans have for him. But now Collinsworth too, Befuddled?
One thing hasn't changed, there's still too many Packer fans that can't bear to hear the truth.

The good: The offense, except for the first and last series.
The Bad: A defense that didn't play well and never properly adjusted.
The Ugly: My computer automatically fills in "Special Teams" when I write the word 'Ugly'! WTF, it's come to this?

Good: Dodged a bullet to get to 11-3 and #1 seed made a little more comfortable with the TB and AZ losses.
Bad: Officiating
Ugly: Reluctance to let Drayton go similar to MM’s refusal to chuck Capers

you choose to see it as a lack of faith, history shows that it's pure faith. harbaugh plays to win. they go for it because he believes in his guys. MLF may say "all gas, no brakes" but harbaugh lives it.

if baltimore overcomes all those injuries and makes the playoffs, he is without question coach of the year.

His father was a marine. He played and later coached at The Citadel. I remember him from his time here in Charleston. He really truly is a no nonsense man. It’s not media hype. He is used to taking undersized and less talented players and bringing out the best in them. Currently his teams suck, yet I cannot believe it’s on him.

Good: Big Dog glad they include him in the offense, Eric Stokes coming of age, sure tackling looking good, AR as he is just that good, run defense overall as Clark was out held up ok.

Bad, lack of adjustment on Andrews hello he is very good but not to bump him off the line throw off timing. Kevin King you just don't get it, (body by fisher, brain by mattel) They just did not adjust at all Savage big hype not worth the money. Five yards off the ball at 3rd and 5 play up in face instead of just easy release, Sullivan?

Ugly and keeps getting Uglier: Special teams, sorry coach don't buy here in GB long term not in your future it can't be you and your group are going to cost them a game.

Soft win didn't really step on the Ravens when you had the chance, Raven's QB might be good trade for someone looking for QB he is better than Love already.

"Soft win didn't really step on the Ravens when you had the chance"

Yes.
At this time of the year, you'd really like to see the Packers pound the other time seriously, but the games are all close. Beat Cleveland by 30, and you look like a championship team.

As Al Davis famously once said..."just win baby...just win"!

Don't look back just keep looking forward while stacking those victories. Too many on here think the Pack should be dominant on all 3 levels every game. Seriously? This isn't fantasy football but the NFL!

Good - AR's uncanny accuracy on zero practice time, OL gutting out another nice performance, Jones running with burst, Dillon being himself, MVS stepping up, Big Dog trying desperately to get a TD, Deguaras' enthusiasm. Stokes moving beyond rookie status by virtue of in-season pt and performance, Campbell for being everywhere seemingly and making the tackle, Gary for his burst and tenaciousness. MLF for getting mo-betta player talent on the ST, limiting Black on D to focus his effort on ST, moving new pieces into return positions

Bad - MLF situational awareness on first drive playcalling and 3-n-out in clutch 2nd half possession, no gas all timidness (MM flashback). D line looking impotent without Clark. Savage-he simply MUST be able to cover a TE one on one. D Coaches for not adjusting and getting a body on Andrews in his route early. D coaches for not stressing containment on Huntley as the game went along and his tendencies became apparent. ST penalties, this goes directly to coaching/training players to execute technique as taught.

Ugly - letting Baltimore back in a game that should have been a 3 score victory. MLF for letting band-aids on ST take the place of decisive action to install better strategic leadership for that phase of the team. Cardinals and Bucs efforts vs very beatable opponents, Thanks guys!

The Good: A win and yet another division championship- it never gets old! Mason and the operation was much improved.
The Bad: Un Special Teams had their moments again.
The Ugly: I'm with Nags on this. The end of the game play calling. Why Dillon was not in, burning the clock, running the ball or at least be a little more creative, and the empty sets during the game is used way too much.
