  1. Week 11 GDT: GB @ Seattle TreeSloths

    Agreed .. I don't like our chances a whole lot. We're 0-4 on the road ... they have dropped two at home, but to good teams in the Rams and Chargers. We can beat them if we can play a complete game, but it will be a challenge on a short week.
  2. Assessment of the 2018 Green Bay Packers

    Can't help the club if you are in the tub! Guy is do for some good injury luck at some point .. isn't he?

    Agreed .. do not want to see Nelson back. Rodgers has fit MVS in pretty well .. now time to get EQ some better opportunities than some line of scrimmage passes that stand no chance of working. What did he have yesterday .. 2 catches for 3 yards. I also hope they bury Cobb for the rest of the year. Out with the old .. in with the up and coming youngsters.
  4. Extend Mike McCarthy?

    The running game has been good, but underutilized. It's hard to give McCarthy credit for something he was failing to use enough. Yesterday he finally struck the right balance .. only took him a month and a half to figure that out. There's also a decent chance he will abandon it again very soon.
  5. Extend Mike McCarthy?

    I want to see legit screen passes to our most explosive player .. Aaron Jones. Not involving him more heavily in the passing game is a wasted opportunity.
  6. Extend Mike McCarthy?

    Agreed .. hopefully Gute is getting feedback from lots of people. He needs to be in tune with that locker room. He just needs to have the pulse of this roster, and a good place to start is with the guy making 30+ mil per year.
  7. Extend Mike McCarthy?

    I think it's safe to say that we under utilize the running backs in the pass game. I don't know if I blame it on Rodgers or not,.. it just seems to be something the Packers have somewhat phased out of their offense over the years. I think when they have a skilled pass catcher out of the backfield they have used it some, but it seems they are using it less and less. I also do not think it has been a strength of Rodgers .. for whatever reason he is not very accurate at times when throwing to the backs. I wonder if it's something they just don't spend much practice time on. McCarthy is the head coach though .. he can change the focus back to the screen game, and various passes to the backs whenever he wants. It's not like Rodgers has this iron claw hold on the playbook.

    Jordy basically retired (in his head) once Rodgers went down to injury last year.
  9. Week 11 GDT: GB @ Seattle TreeSloths

    Cohen said this morning that Breeland's injury does not appear to be very serious .. he was trying to go back into the game, and was seen stretching out on the sidlines with helmet on. Might be in question for Thursday, but hopefully not a long term thing.
  10. Week 11 GDT: GB @ Seattle TreeSloths

    I think he did get his bell rung, but it wasn't a concussion apparently. It was smart to hold him out as the game was in hand.
  11. Week 11 GDT: GB @ Seattle TreeSloths

    Pettine should do okay .. he was in a consulting role with the Seahawks before coming to GB ... he knows them well.
  12. Optimism? WHAT?!

    I'm a little more optimistic .. we've got some game-breaking talent on offense .. just have to utilize it. Aaron Jones is superstar material who has went underutilized most of this season for no good reason at all. He's far an away our best back and had to play second fiddle at times to lesser guys. Yesterday McCarthy finally got it right .. 15 carries for Jones .. 3 carries for Williams. 15 should be the minimum going forward. Adams is a stud at wide receiver. MVS is a player .. ESB needs to be more involved. Cobb should play a marginal role moving forward .. let the young guys flourish. Heck, Jimmy Graham was hardly targeted yesterday .. we've got plenty of weapons on offense. We had a Marcedes Lewis sighting yesterday on a nice gainer ... why in the hell has this guy not been used more in the pass game/red zone? There is absolutely no reason that this unit should struggle. The only things holding this thing back are a stubborn head coach and a QB who was gimpy most of the season. Maybe now they are finally willing to let it all hang out. We shall see.

    One of the top three or four names you hear come up as prospective head coaching prospects.
  14. Week 11 GDT: GB @ Seattle TreeSloths

    If all of those guys are out we won't win.
  15. Week 10: Miami WontWins @ Green Bay GDT

    Yeah .. just enjoy the win .. don't over analyze it
