There was a whole lot that went wrong with that game. Jeff covered a bunch of things we’ve all been thinking in his Rant & Rave article. Still, there were several positives that I took away from this game which have eased the pain a bit.
It could be worse
I know I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, anybody who grew up in the 1970s or remember the Packers of the 1950s is well aware that we are very blessed to have this team.
The kind of play we’ve seen out of the 2015 Packers in the last three games is the kind of play we used to see out of them every single game.
While this team is definitely not ready to match up against playoff teams right now, it’s still a very very good team.
They showed they can be scrappy
When the first half it came to a close, I think most of us figured it was going to be another Broncos-esque display. I personally had my doubts about this game before the game even started. And, I figured the second half will be more of the same as we experienced in the first half.
Still the team never gave up. Despite the fact that they knew that things were terribly wrong, despite the fact that they knew they were not firing on all cylinders, despite the fact that the Panthers had scored almost at will in the first half; we kept at it and made a heroic effort.
Go Pack Go!
So, while the team and the coaches need to go back to the drawing board and focus on what went drastically wrong the last few games, I have the luxury of focusing on what I love about this team.
Packer proud to the end!
