On this episode of "I've run out of words to describe my feelings in regards to the Green Bay Packers so I have to Google them to make sure they're proper enough"

Dejection - a sad and depressed state; low spirits.

Has Gutekunst drafted any player that can catch the football?

He's got a terrible track record of receivers and lineman. Two of the only things Ted Thompson was known for, and two of the things that helped keep GB relevant for a long time. B.G. has selected 10 receivers and most of them are serviceable at best, two of the most promising being Reed and Wicks who are rookies this year. His track record for lineman is even worse, drafting 11 lineman and all of which being disasters with the exception of Jenkins, Runyan and Tom (Runyan I only label as passable because of his pass blocking).

In fact, he has drafted two pro bowlers and their names are Jaire Alexander and Elgton Jenkins. They made the pro bowl in 2020 and GB hasn't sniffed another pro bowl season at any position since then. You think of 25 starting positions on an NFL team, multiply that by 5 years (since 2018 was his first year as GM) that's 123/125 seasons of statistics that were unworthy of even making a probowl. Props to him for finding two all-pros in Campbell in 2021 and Nixon in 2022, but he has got to bring better talent into the team to make it competitive.

This is what i have been saying all along. Many here don't like to hear any blame on Gutey.
He is too much into RAS and not much into real ballers and has been below Avg in terms of drafting but his FA's have been good.

I'm not blaming him for trying to become more athletic. The best football teams are strong, fast and nasty. HOWEVER, they also must be good football players. Too many times have we seen "athletic" players drafted in the first round because of their speed, or their strength, or what have you, only to flop and end up out of the league 3 years later. We need better football players, not better athletes.

This is an undisciplined team that the head coach has lost hold of .

For years, I listened to the Pack on radio, going back to the old WTMJ broadcasts. Somehow, losing wasn't as painful as watching on TV now. So, I've decided: From now on I'm just watching the Watch Party!

There was poll on Twitter asking “what percentage of the crowd will be purple”. The answer I chose was >50%. I think that I was correct.

I was there, and you're not even close! 20% tops, and you can blame packers season ticket holders for that.

My biggest takeaway from the game today is this:

Before today, the packers looked to always be within one good first half drive from having a winning record. Today showed that anything this team had going for it has been figured out by all potential opponents. This isn’t just a bad packers team, this is a bad team.

We knew that it would be this though… right? 1/3 of the cap goes to a player that’s gone. Another 1/3 to a couple of guys who will never have a meaningful contribution again. The remainder goes to rookies or never-have-beens. The defensive coordinator is known lousy coordinator (why was that hire ever allowed to happen). So we knew this season was lost before it started.

Now that we are 7 games into this season we also know the following: MLF is not a good coach. He did not develop love into anything that he wasn’t in college. MLF is also incapable of having the team prepared for an opponent even after two long breaks (raiders and broncos), and can’t get ready for an opponent for whom they have miles of game film (Vikings).

I hate this team… see you next week.

The Zeros in the first 1/2 say it all.
It's Love; and there is no denying it now.
And as long as these guys keep missing practice.
The drops will continue-
