Here is the ugly film review of the disaster in the desert for the Green Bay Packers.
Thanks Shawn, I always look forward to your game summaries.
I’m sure, as every week you did an excellent job.
But, I’m going to pass on watching this mess, I’d turned it off after Starks’ fumble to begin second half and am glad I did……
Hopefully next week’s version will be “more” watchable…..
BTW : I think you’re being kind giving anyone a grade above D …
CMIII is an over rated OLB. D Capers and MM are fools for catering to CMIII. ILB should be his position period. He does not have what it takes to rush from the edge anymore. These players seem out of touch, spoiled and enabled. Ryan IMHO appears to be nothing more than a slightly faster AJ Hawk V.2. Aaron Rodgers is playing like someone who has no stake in the game. It appears as if he has been concussed multiple times over this season. It is as if his thought process is in slo-mo while the defenses is in hyper drive. I believe Aaron Rodgers to be under the effects of prior concussions. Otherwise his response times and decision making would be light years better . . . Lots of bad things going on in Packer land . . . Rome is falling.
I’m not sure how 3 catches for 15 yards, and 1 rush for 2 yards earns someone a B, but ok.
It’s not the first time you showed receivers getting open and not thrown to.we saw the many games before so it was al bs talking that receivers could not get open. Even the pundits offen said that while in playbacks one could offen see the possebilities even without choach film, whitch I don’t have acces to.
Every week, either the receivers are playing poorly or QB is play poorly. Our passing game is cursed. AR passing is in the shitter anyhow so he should just start gunslinging it into tight windows. Key for him is to not hold on to the ball. He needs to let it fly after 2 seconds. Cobb can get open easily in that amount of time for 10-15 yards.
Thanks Shawn for putting in the time. As the season has progressed it appears some of the team have the same attitude about the regular season as some had during the preseason games. Get through those useless games and on to the playoffs. It is as if they are entitled to be in the playoffs, when it is for “all the marbles”. Then “everyone will show up.” Just need to turn on that playoff switch and all will be fine?
Interesting. I had not considered that. There may be some truth to that. I found Aaron’s comments about “turning it on” when it counts to be VERY disturbing. In a sport that only has 16 regular season games, and you never know how many of those games may be hampered by multiple existing injuries; to say any single game is not important is absolutely ignorant.
This is what me and others have been saying about why MM, despite his record, has to go. He either refuses to change up his offense to accomodate the offenses current situation: IE give substitute players like Barcley help, or go to quick timing short routes; OR he cannot reign in his QB and get him to change his thinking. Either way I think he has lost not only the offense, but the whole team.
One thing I have noticed on Shawns Game Views lately, is the receivers response both in mannerisms and in facial expressions towards Aaron after he misses them on throws, doesnt throw to them when they feel they are open, or throws the ball 10 yards out of bounds. The receivers seem very frustrated with him. I have seen some dirty looks thrown his way after quite a few passes. But you know that is gonna happen when the media is constantly saying our WR’s cant get open, and when highly paid, media darling QB refuses to get onto the podium and take the blame onto his own shoulders.
I almost hope we lose to the Vikings. I know I know thats crazy. I hate hte Vikings believe me. However if we win the division and go one and done in the playoffs, we are gonna hear about how great a job MM did because we won another division title.
Since I think its time for some coaching changes, best way for that to happen is for us to lose to Minnesota, then one and done in playoffs. That way it can be said that the Vikings have vaulted over us in the division, and that once again MM cant put a playoff winning team together.
Before people jump down my throat and say “your so greedy, this team is a winner”. Well may I remind you of this: MM, Arodge, and several other Packers told us this team was the most talented they had ever been a part of. They told us that the loss to Seattle last year was a fluke, and had motivated them to come back and take what they thought was theirs (the SB trip).
Well funny how that changed. Now MM tells us that a mediocre 10 win season in a league full of parity and bad teams should shield him from “negativity”, and Arodge tells us that they will just “turn it on” when it counts.
Oh and about Matthews: first step outside pass rushers ALWAYS turn into average pass rushers after a few years in the league. When your a one trick pony people figure you out. Its like a reliever in baseball that has a 98 mile an hour fastball but cant throw a curve or a slider. The first your you think the guy is the greatest reliever ever, suddenly in year 2 everyone is teeing off on the guy every time he throws a pitch.
Thats why Matthews is much better off rushing from the inside where he can look for matchups he likes and thinks he can exploit with his speed.
Like Shawn said: its time for the outside linebacker days of Matthews to be done.
