RantsEddie Lacy vs Atlanta

Well the Packers lose a tough one to the Bills, Right from the start you could see Rodgers and his receivers were not on the same page this game.

While he did give them a chance to make plays most of his passes were just off the mark. Nelson had one that could have been a TD go right through his hands which is very uncharacteristic of him, But it was just the way this game went for the most part.

I personally did not like the play calling this game as well, Lacy was running like a beast gashing the Bills defense with most of his carries and what does McCarthy do? He pulls him to play Starks and tries to get the passing game going. If its working why change it up? I understand Lacy may have been playing a little hurt but he was the only one moving the chains this game.

UntitledThis game was not Rodgers best performance by far but he did do enough to win the game the receivers just did not make the catches, Even though they were tough catches they still should have been caught.

When you throw picks its very hard to recover from them, The defense tried to keep them in the game and did a good job keeping it close but when Rodgers and company fails to produce its very hard to overcome! On one pick Aaron did make a mistake by throwing into double coverage when Nelson was WIDE open down the sideline with no defender within 20 yards of him. That play just put the icing on the cake for me that Rodgers was not his usual self this game, On any other day he sees Jordy and tosses a strike for a big gainer or even a TD.

I suppose if they had to lose it was best to do it now but they need to win out for sure to have a shot for a postseason run. If they lose to Detroit in the final game and lose the North title they might not even make the postseason but if they do it will be as a wild card and have to play road games throughout. We all know how the Packers have been on the road this year especially against good teams!


Ok I suppose I should rave about something even though there is not much to be happy about this loss.

The team did come out some what healthy, we will have to wait and see how bad Bulaga is and hope its not to bad.

Lacy was a beast enough said!

The team is not out of this yet and with a win in the last two games could still have at least a #2 seed.

Lets us know your thoughts on the future of this team.

Go Pack Go!

    I agree with your evaluation. Here is my concern. Our 4 losses follow the same pattern. Strong defenses and we fail to make adjustments. Lacy was 10 carries for 73 yds at half, yet he carries only 4 times in second half. What adjustment we made played into our opponents strength, not ours. Offense had a rough game but championship teams figure out a way to win. As much as I think Detroit is an inferior team to the Packers, they are winning games they shouldn’t. I fear our problems are not isolated but systemic.

    as usual Mc Carthy is not a good play caller…..was there a screen pass all day? How many passes to tight ends? Never any razzle dazzle…same thing week in and week out. Seems to me he runs plays just to run plays so he can check it off his list. If something works you can try it more than once.

    I did’nt see the game, some clips only. But from what I saw and read, Rodgers did not play to his talent and the receivers did’nt help. But looking at the stats, the defense showed up good and Lacy still runs good. I would follow Rodger’s comment” R-E-L-A-X!”

    I’d rather see the Packs lose now and win out until february. This season, the offense has had us a lot more confident than our D. The season is not done yet, with two very win-able games coming up.

    Let’s see how it goes in Tampa before we quit believing!
