The good: driving down the Rams throats. Old school, right there.. The bad: STs, hope this doesn't bite us in the butt. The Ugly: my fandom, I scared my wife, my dogs and my cat at various points. My throat was raw after the game.

The good: The overall game plan and it execution. The intense play of the offensive line staying on blocks and reaching the second level.
The bad: The soft zone defense that continues to keep opposing teams in the game.
The ugly: Special teams cost points this week and put the team in situations they went for 2 and failed costing points again.

ST also cost them yards with a punt going over Austin's head and a long return on the final kickoff. ST's main mission is field position and they totally whiffed on that job. These guys are the only weakness the Pack is showing right now but they are so bad they really could kill this run. They are just awful other than Crosby's kicking.

Get starters at the returner positions for this game and why can't Jackson show something to augment that unit? He was Inactive again...

The Good- We won, a good team win, complimentary football. Playing for the NFC Championship in Lambeau Field.
The Bad: Special teams again- extra point unit- LS
The Ugly- soft defense and the easy score by the Rams before half. Like they were in prevent defense.

Yeah. The will redmond drive. My question is why? They have no number one wr. Woods is solid. Thats it. Why not press a bit more?? Gonna have to man up this week against the bucs cus brady will find the soft spot in the zone if we dont.

This needs a rename. Why 2 bad points and only one good? Let's be a little more positive and do , The Great, The Good and The not so good! In that vain...

The Great- Outstanding OL play. Yes Donald was severely limited, but it wouldn't have made even a 7pt difference.

The Good - Actually is great as well, but Lafleur play calling and Rodgers execution of the game plan. Magnificent.

The Not So Good - as usual another ST gaffe. Need to clean it up. Always seems to be something different each week.

I hold my breath on every special teams play. I don't even hope for a big return, just don't fumble or go backwards. Don't expect a big punt, just hope it doesn't get blocked. Pathetic special teams play for it seems like decades.

- JK had two punts. The second was perfectly placed, and there nothing wrong with the first one.
-One poor long snap on the season does not translate into a trend.
-Crosby has not missed a field goal this season.
-Decades, huh? Apparently you missed all of the great returns by Cobb and Allen Rossum. It seems you also missed Crosby's entire career, and Masthay's punting career.

It's OK, we don't expect deplorables to be very smart.

A play the Packers should install is that Rams 2-pt conversion reception/pitch to the running back aiming for the corner pylon. Beautiful play.

With how well the RB's, TE's and WR's block (and the OL run blocks) this should be a staple of the Packers to make teams think twice about loading the box on 3rd and longs and 2-point conversions.

The Buccs are going to try and bully the Packers (again) through the middle and pressure Rodgers. This could be an option.

If they don't turn it over the Pack should have been up three scores last autumn. Hopefully, they learned a lesson about staying with the plan and fighting through momentum swings.

Good: offensive game plan - love watching that RB Hydra wear out a defense

Bad - Rodger over throwing MVS and Lazard dropping a td

Ugly - They should make it abundantly clear to JK Scott that on a fire drill you don’t set your 36 year old place kicker up for a bone crushing hit. Throw the ball away if Mason is the only one open in a crowd of people.

The Good: Excellent OL play for entire game. Great game by Lafleur. AR, RBs, Lazard and Tonyan. Gary, Smiths, Clark, Alexander and Amos on defense.

The Bad: Lazard’s dropped pass.

The Ugly: Bad snap on extra point.

Packers best game of the season. Better than Titans game. The team is peaking at the right time. Go Pack Go!

The Good: The offensive playing calling, offensive line, & RBs.
The Bad: Pettine hardly using Snacks to stop the run & using that awful 3 man rush scheme while our D played out their hearts. I just wonder how much more dominant we could be with better scheming.
The Ugly: Our special teams (except for Crosby) and our 2 point conversion play. Special teams has not improved all year long while finding a way to screw up most every game; and our 2 point conversion plays don't ever seem to work. Where's the coaching?!!

Congratulations on making the absolute laziest argument EVER!

Who cares what they averaged?! The Rams running game was never a factor in the game. NEVER. They weren't controlling TOP or the play in any way due to their running. Their running wasn't in any way helping the playaction game at all.

He simply wasn't needed. Quite relying on stats and trust your eyes man! Geez.

I hope we have a better game plan this time. Weather is not going to be to our advantage. We will be playing last year's San Francisco 49ers but with different uniforms.
If we cannot run the ball we are toast and if we cannot get to Brady, same. We can do it but we have to play a perfect game .

Idk man. Tom looked pretty average to me today. They won because drew breeze handed them the game. We will move the ball much better. And them guys have been playing in florida all season. Weather will be our advantage. We will be the favorite. Not by much. But we will. So a perfect game would be nice. But its not necessary. We just have to play good packer football. Pressure. Catch the ball. Rodgers will be locked in. No one can lock down davante over their. Lazard finally healthy. Its not going to be easy. But considering we will be the favorites at home with the fuckin 2020 mvp, lets just say im confident after this rams game.

Drew Brees looked finite. Could be he is coming off 11 broken ribs and just can't throw and a healthy Brees is still good. Brady looked better but nothing to write home about either.

My takeaway was that either those two defenses are incredibly good or the respective offenses are very limited. I also thought the refs let the DBs be very physical, and indeed had a blind eye for defensive holding.

Also on a big play Gronk was making contact 7 or 8 yards downfield before the pass was thrown to that area. OPI but not called.

N.O. was flat right from the start. Shocking with Brees. Reminds me of the 2011 Giants NFC champ game. Saints were not mentally in the game as a whole team. Brady wasn't that sharp, but the Saints, sloppy bad.

totally agree---we will need a superior game plan or Rodgers will get frustrated trying to hit receivers being jammed at the line unless his OL gives him more time than the last game---also makes it difficult to run the ball---the way to beat Brady is to pressure him all night and avoid TO's which we failed to do last game---he will pick us apart if you let him---The Buc's are a nightmare matchup so let's hope for lots of snow and cold

Good. Elgton jenkins beating down an already hobbled aaron donald to the point where he was so frustrated he gave us a free 15. With elgton n linsley we need to run right at devin white. Not away from him. Lazard catchin the big one when it mattered. Hes gonna have to make plays from here on in. Mvs too. Rashan gary, kclark, and the smiths. 15 pressures on 31 drop backs. Like 4 sacks that i remember. Jaire. They threw at him once in the entire game for a 3 yrd loss. The bad. Too much dime against jared goff. Be agressive pettine. Ugly. Yall already know. Extremely special teams.

Yes, run right at White & David. Last time we faced them we ran wide and it turned into a disaster.

Each game lately has been a good prep for the game that followed. A win over TB will set us up well for BUF/KC. Can you imagine a GB/BUF SB?! Of course AR vs PM would be a dandy too.

Good:
A couple games ago I took heat for criticizing the linebackers and saying someone needs to step up and elevate their game as a stand out for the Pack to go deep in the playoffs. I never expected the entire squad to step up collectively, but they did. Allowing only 2 of 8 3rd down attempts and driving their face in the turf with 4 sacks. Mr Barns deserves mention with the game high with 7 tackles. Nice job fellas !
And Aaron, with a game passer rating of 108+, deservedly the fans chant "MVP".

The Bad:
Why is it, it seems every team in the league is successful with 2 point conversions except the packers?
Next, Aaron got lucky a few times and was not picked but we all know luck has a tendency to run out. Lets just hope that doesn't happen in the up coming game(s). I can't imagine what his Passer rating would be if he cut throwing behind his receivers in half. Would have a hell of a lot less dropped passes also.

The Ugly:
You have to look pretty hard to find "ugly" in this game but if you were forced, you'd have to throw special teams under the bus. Of course everybody will point to the F###ed up snap for an extra point, but I will point out the special teams just seems FLAT and lackluster in their plays and no real threat(s) when on the field.

~Now, go out there and HIT someone. I need a cigar...

"Aaron got lucky a few times and was not picked but we all know luck has a tendency to run out. Lets just hope that doesn't happen in the up coming game(s)."

I'm assuming you're talking about the 2nd and 3rd down throw at the end of the first half? IMO Rodgers was just going for it and 99% of the time wouldn't throw either of those passes if for example there was a lot of time left in the half. Obviously I'm speculating but that was REALLY odd of Rodgers to do. SO out of the norm.

I have a hard time thinking of the Packers without Aaron Jones next year hopefully find the money. Their running game will keep them in this game with Bucs don't abandon it to early. Kamara was on last night but they went away from it, Brees arm strength just not there really cost them the game. Rodgers will keep them honest in play action. Just pound the ball 14 play drives in the cold get Suh sucking canal water. If Pack can get maybe 3-4 3 and outs they will be fine.

Good- oline, Aaron and Running game, even MVS made some plays
Bad- Please JK Scott your kicker is old don't give him the ball SP teams
Ugly- Kick returner looks like he wants to be there like me in Colonoscopy. No Explosion, No Pun intended. How about Tavon back there ??
