I know it was a win but there were some faults this game, starting with Aaron Rodgers. There is no way an MVP QB throws two INT’s to a depleted secondary like the Giants have, he was also missing open receivers again and trying to force the ball into tight coverage, and looking for Nelson way to much. Jordy was targeted 13 times with only 4 receptions for 38 yards. Rodgers was 23-for-45 for 259 yards, two TDs and a passer rating of 65.0. which is far from being elite.

Most Dangerous Substance on Earth - Packer Offense

James Starks in my opinion is useless. He can’t catch and hitting hole hole would be a surprise! All we can hope for now is John Crockett can return before long since Lacy has once again injured his ankle, which is no surprise since he has done so every year, I think next year I will start a pool on how many games he can play before getting an ankle injury! I know Justin Forsett is available right now but we all know Thompson won’t give a free agent any looks.

Play-calling was once again questionable, McCarthy isn’t using the right players for certain plays, for instance Cobb is not a running back so he has no business being in the back-field plain and simple! Abbrederis, Janis and Davis are still sitting on the bench way too much, this was a game where speed could have resulted in big plays down field but McCarthy didn’t use them on a depleted secondary.

Well those are my gripes if you have any let us know in the comments.

Raves

The offensive line was outstanding this game, Rodgers could have took a short nap before throwing the ball the way they were protecting him. Besides a couple penalties they were flawless. Lacy was provided with big holes and so was Starks but as I stated he couldn’t hit one if he had a map to it. Lacy on the other hand was on fire looking like the running back of old.

I’ve been hard on Davante Adams and rightfully so but if he can string together some games like this one I will slack off on him but until then I am not sold on him as the #3 guy. One pass Aaron threw high for him to go up and get like he’s suppose to but he pulled his hands down and the ball should have been intercepted but luckily it wasn’t. Cobb was the man this game he played with attitude and made most of the big plays, the last play to seal the deal was scary, his neck was twisted up hard and at first didn’t look good but he got up and walked it off. After the game he even admitted it scared him and quoted he thought he had died when he seen all the people standing over him after the hit.

Well it was a win and that’s the only rave which counts so like the rants let us know your raves as well in the comments below or on our FB home page.

Thanks,

Jeff

    Wow! I hope that Jeff’s football analytical skills are better than his writing skills. Here is a suggestion, Jeff–read and edit what you wrote before you publish it.

      What Jeff lacks in writing skills, he more than makes up for by providing polite and objective commentary about our team. Jeff is devoting his time and effort to give us articles without being paid. You, on the other hand, will not likely be asked to ever write for anyone because of your demeanor. Learn to make your points without insulting others.

      And for the record, your sentence structure and grammar are no better. It should be: “Here is a suggestion: Jeff, read and edit what you’ve written before you publish it.”

    in the last 20+ years green bay has had argueably the 2 best qb’s to ever throw footballs. We have a combined two superbowl victories. A huge waste of talent. It’s time to win now, Don’t waste Rodgers ability like Favres was. Green Bay has consistently fielded good teams but not great ones. Now is the time-

    I think you’re reading too much into the problems. Simply put; when Rodgers is playing well he hides many of our problems, and when he’s playing poorly he amplifies them. Our play calls are still approved by McCarthy, and our D is struggling because they’re on the field way too much.

    I think there is an underling problem with the team and they need to bring it out into the open. I think some one stepped on some one’s toes or something like that and it is hurting the entire team. Let’s fix the problem get over it and go back to winning gams.

    Simple!… Abby and Janis

    Stop whining and complaining, you all are starting to sound like Bears fans. Have some faith. McCarthy will resume play calling, we’ll get healthy and The run game will resume in time for a stretch run. We still have the best fans and a great team. Show some patience and faith.

    I agree completely with your assessments, its like someone turned the light switch”off,” with the entire offense. If you listen to them talk afterwards, the media doesn’t want to make them mad by challenging them. Hold each other accountable, please!

      I aptaceirpe you taking to time to contribute That’s very helpful.

    You hit the nail right on the head. Football is a team effort and all members of the team must excute in order to win. They have not been doing that, even in some of the games they won. If they do not get their heads on straight, they will continue to perform poorly.

    What about the horrible play calling at the end of the first half that cost us three points to the Lions. With no timouts remaining, starting from about our 10 yard line with a little over a minute to go instead of letting the clock run out we go 3 and out and punted from our end zone that led to a field goal. Throwing 2 passes with on stopping the clock was unthinkable.

    Rodgers is scared. You put it perfectly “He doesn’t trust the call or the receivers” and it shows right through everything. And the loss of the swagger and confidence is gone. It was like Tom Brady snuck into the Packers locker room and deflated ever ounce of confidence and passion this team had. There are other QBs that lose there star receivers and move on to have great seasons and even win Superbowls. I agree and dis agree with McCarthy taking the play calling back. He was great with it until he had a two score lead, and then McCarthy would go into this idle mode and not keep his foot on the gas. Who cares if you blow out another team. This is for the big bucks, nobody will care if you score 50 on another team.
    All week it should be nothing but the OL coach with both feet up their asses, and McCarthy, Rodgers and ever receiver should be throwing 50 passes per day at each one. It’s time for Rodgers to buck up and start hitting his guys. If not throw Scott Tolzien in. If your going to lose, at least let a hungry kid get a shot..

    What I don’t understand is Jake Ryan looked like the perfect match to Clay Matthews last week in Carolina, why isn’t he on the field more?

    Your article’s points are mostly true, BUT why all the run-on sentences and bad grammar?? Doesn’t anyone know how to compose a well-written article anymore?

    •   November 16, 2015, 10:13 pm

      GPN does not employ professional writers. They are fans with various grammatical skill levels who are doing this out of their passion for the team. I’m not saying that I like it, as I’d prefer all articles to be edited. I’m saying that expecting people to perfect their writing skills for a hobby is asking a bit much. 😉

    The fist couple of games were great . 4th, 5th, and 6th showed we barely got by with a win. What happened to the Packers? Too much bragging and not enough results. We can do better and let’s take it seriously and change it up. What we are doing is NOT working. Let’s GO PACK GO!

  14.   November 16, 2015, 10:14 am

    Rodgers lost it is afraid to throw the ball has no passion nor confidence afraid to throw interceptions It is all about him: A Favre he never will be even tho he looks better on Paper only: watch his expressions on his face there is no passion no wants., People need to stop building him up.

  15.   November 16, 2015, 10:02 am

    Sadly I think you nailed it. As a 50 year loyal Packer fan all I can say is we have been through this before. Let’s not let it get that bad again. Please no more Packers are Devine! That was worse than this!

    •   November 16, 2015, 12:10 pm

      Totally agree. I watched a few seconds of Roger’s news conf after the game. He was asked if the offense was in a “funk”. He strongly disagreed and said they ” they would look at the film and make fixes” (I paraphrase). What??? Didn’t they do that after Denver? Carolina? They were pushed around in those games. You’d think that the answer might be “yes, we have problems and yes, I am not playing well”. I admire Aaron enormously but this response was not enough.

      •   November 17, 2015, 8:37 pm

        Strongly agree with you.
