You know the one. The one depicts the Green Bay Packers’ slow, painful meltdown against the Seattle Seahawks. Mike McCarthy has watched it. In fact, he can’t get enough of it.
The Packers’ coach says that not only are he and his staff not shying away from looking at that game to figure out how they can improve, but McCarthy has watched it again and again.
“That’s part of your scheme evaluation,” McCarthy said. “We have done it as a staff. We cut up every situation, so we’ve seen those plays from that game a number of times from our scheme evaluation.”
All of this goes into planning and building the playbook for 2015, which is what has been happening over the past couple months.
McCarthy went on to mention that he’s also watched the TV broadcast of the game in addition to the coach’s film.
While we have no desire to relive that debacle again, it’s certainly a good sign that the coaches aren’t shying away from it. The biggest question after that game was are the Packers going to let this disappointment affect next season?
We’re fairly confident the answer is going to be no. In fact, it appears as if it will make them better prepared than they’ve been in the past.
Holy shit, is that optimism I sense from Monty? What bizarro world have I stepped into?
That dumpster fire of a second half and OT should be required viewing for the entire locker room.
actually, the video should include the game clock view inserted PIP. then it would be obvious to all that he still is too retarded to manage a two minute drill, or even recognize that a two minute drill does not come into play five minutes before the end of the game with only a two possession lead?
then it is obvious to all, even the retarded homers on this site, that MM never was anything more than a mediocre college FB coach at best, and hasn’t been able to overcome his coaching talent limitations even after five seasons of experience since the one and only fluke championship in 2010?
So The 2015 play book will not include the intercepting a pass with an open field in front of you and flopping to the turf play.
It’s Okay, we’ll get em next year!
MM, your team will have leads in games, your team will make mistakes and the game tempo will change. That is not what went horribly wrong. That is normal. What went so wrong was the complete lack of urgency, stress and resultant adaptability to win. I know you practice a static game plan. Now you need to practice adaptation and how to apply it in a changing environment. It is a basic art of war.
I agree that the whole Team needs to watch that game before training camp to light a fire in them.
Still have nightmares about that one.
Required viewing before EVERY game for EVERY present and future Packer….
“That’s part of your scheme evaluation,” McCarthy said.
Typical Mike. Im sure they were also looking at “pad level”.
MM proved beyond a doubt that he is good at some things . . . game management? Absolutely FUCKING clueless! Burnett? Never thought his cognitive prowess was that high after listening to his interviews over the years.
It was a meltdown for the ages. Inexcusable. And improbable as well; several unlikely things all had to happen for the Seahawks in the last four minutes, not the least of which was that improbable 2-point conversion pass when Wilson was falling out of bounds under heavy pressure and heaving up a desperation rainbow to nobody in particular. I agree that the Packers should have to sit and watch that final four minutes again and again.
Every play in a game should be performed with urgency. As Lombardi said
” Two or three plays in a game spell victory or defeat; you never know when that play is coming up.”
Be sure that overpaid blonde woman doesn’t get all tuckered out during the crucial last few minutes again. So far we’ve heard about three reason for his absence.
