You know we love this shit. The unaccountable, screw you guys B.S. instilled in the Green Bay Packers organization from the top down. Today, let’s hear from head coach Mike McCarthy!
“We’re right where I wanted to be, right where we need to be,” McCarthy said. “The style points, you can flush that. I’m sick of talking of the negativity that goes on here. We won 10 games. We lost three games, but that’s the game. Denver beat us. That’s the overview of the season. We have a chance to win 11 next week.”
That’s Big Mike responding to the fact that no one is particularly impressed with the Green Bay Packers even though they’ve won 10 games.
How dare you criticize his football team!
I believe the actual question that provoked that response was something along the lines of, “Can you get this team playing playoff-caliber football?”
You know, because they’re clearly not playing playoff-caliber football.
In fact, unless something changes pretty quickly, this team is going to get their asses kicked by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round. And that’s about as appealing as eating a pile of rat assholes for lunch.
But listen, you do not criticize Big Mike’s Green Bay Packers!
They are clearly a top-notch unit! These guys are going far! The sky is the limit!
What happened to appreciating a win? There are only 6 teams that have 10 or more wins in the league of 32. Is that not an impressive mark? If I was MM I would be pissed too. They are 3 plays away from being 13-1 and have to answer the same damn questions week after week.
Let’s get behind his team and start appreciating the toughness they’re showing. They know they’re not blowing up the box score but they keep grinding and winning. That’s the toughness needed to make a December/January run.
Mason Crosby is averaging about 12-15 points a game for us I figure, maybe even a little more if we actually score tds in games. Thats basically how we are still in this thing. And the defense is doing just enough.
Well, after Palmer & Co go in dry next week, maybe Fat Mike will understand the situation
I think it should be noted that Rodgers called for Abbrederis to get more snaps. Cobb is our only true offensive threat, and playing mostly in the slot he is easily covered by keeping a safety behind him. Adams apparently greases his gloves before each game, and everyone else is too slow to get open. It is disappointing that Janis didn’t make the most of his offensive opportunities. I’m not apologizing for Rodgers, but he clearly doesn’t trust his receiving group.
While Janis got a few throws, none of them were anywhere close to being good catchable passes(save the last one) but that last one was a fucking bullet that I am not certain anyone could have caught.
Hey, you hear that McCarthy? Monty ain’t impressed. A 10-4 team that just won on the road and secured a playoff berth isn’t good enough for Monty and Total Packers. He’s not happy unless the Packers are blowing out opponents 50-3 and winning the Superbowl every year.
Nobody here will get behind this team unless they start dominating their opponents. It’s called being a fair-weather fan. They’re the same fans that whine when a team doesn’t convert on 4th down and then whine again when they punt on the next series. They can never be satisfied. In fact, I’d say they enjoy watching the Packers lose because it gives then something to complain about. They enjoy misery.
Packer Bob is surely one of those guys who was proud to receive his participation trophy every year. You know he likely never had enough killer instinct to be great at anything, instead being content with mediocrity.
This is what passes for fan opinion? We didn’t win pretty enough? This is, unfortunately, the downside of a consistently winning franchise. The fanbois get all weepy. Stop complaining you pathetic wretch. When you become head coach, I’m sure we’ll all be super impressed.
Next week’s game at Arizona will be the true barometer of how good we are. If we get taken BD squared* in that game, everyone’s ass will be chapped heading into the playoffs.
*BD squared = (Balls Deep X Bone Dry)
Only saw 2 of the 4 Janis targets. One in end zone was batted away by a good defensive play. Another one in end zone was so badly under thrown there was nothing Janis could do to catch it since he was behind the dbs (and open).
It’s a real shame that someone is keeping him off the field as a WR. He is never given a chance to play consistently and then people say he doesn’t contribute. Who’s decision is that? No matter how many balls Adams drops he will still likely get over a dozen targets.
Sorry but look at the average yards per pass stat and see if you don’t think there is a problem stretching the field. Yet Janis is forbidden from essentially playing beyond one snap. Once Rodgers makes a poor throw to him, Janis is benched in favor of splitting out wide a slow TE and/or FB, or Adams is immediately put back in to drop the ball and then garner even more playing time.
Additionally, if I’m the opposing defense you don’t think that they notice that 90 % of the plays Janis is in, he is simply used as a decoy?
C’mon. What about running him on slants and posts and giving him a real chance?
This team is in serious trouble. Rodgers looks like a totally different QB.
Amen! Janis is not getting great throws. Hell, the passes he gets are usually crappy. Except for the end zone pass yesterday (not the real low one) but the other one traveling at light speed that no other receiver could have caught. Something is up between Rodgers and Janis because every time Rodgers throws it poorly to Janis he turns to him and cusses at him. Janis has physical gifts, look at his kickoff returns. He is a fighter, he has spirit. Rodgers ignores it, or throws crap to him, blames him for fucking it up, then doesn’t have to throw to him for a quarter or two. I almost hope Janis goes somewhere else and has a great career because I believe he may be getting a raw deal on Offense here. Certainly Adams is getting a sickening amount of opportunity to shit the bed each and every week without repercussions . . . What kind of message is that sending to the rest of this Packers team???
Lot of people getting butt hurt about a fair assessment of how shitty our offense is. One and done unless the offense gets a whole lot better. But Mike McMack don’t wanna hear it.
The packers just beat a fairly good team on the road that was fighting for their playoff lives and won by ten. Chill out. A team that just beat Denver in Denver the week before. Also keep in mind the eagles had beaten new England the week before in Foxboro. Anything can happen week to week. I realize the offense has been maddening at times. Actually quite a bit lately. All it takes is for that light to click on and a team goes on a run. Look at KC. That team was 1-5 and was one of the worst teams in the league, a team that the packers plastered. They have reeled off 8 straight wins. You never know. Just win baby!
And yet here you are, with your cure for AIDS, Nobel Peace Prize, and pending HoF induction. Thank God your father beat you as a child so you learned the merits of standing up for yourself and fighting to the death at every event from scrabble to Black Friday.
You guy need to understand that the Packers offense put up 17 points with like 185+ total yards in the second half. Did you guys see their last 3 drives ? They were unstoppable.
So, most everyone seems content with just above average play year after year? That’s nice. No wonder teams like NE don’t give a f$%# about the rest of the league’s feelings. All they do is compete to win and win decisively.
Would agree with several that the offense is not what it should be. The offense is at lows in 3rd down conversion % that it has not seen in years if not decades. The receivers cannot get open consistently and when they do some appear to be running a different route than Rodgers thinks they should be running. In addition Rodgers is not accurate and when he is some receivers drop the ball at to high of a rate. The o line is not as dominate as last year (injury related for most part). the running game is not what it should be. I guess it would be better if the O could go back to running up huge point totals in the first quarter and half then hold on for the second half and fourth quarter.
There is one positive about this team and offense that I like better than the last few years. This team has performed a hell of a lot better in second half and fourth quarter than previous years, by positive point differential. This team has learned how to win the second half and more importantly the fourth quarter of games. A large percentage of NFL games come down to what team wins the fourth quarter. This is at an even higher percentage and more important in playoff games.
This team has by a huge difference than Packer teams of the last few years shown they can win the second half and fourth quarter of games. What did all those great first halfs and poor second halfs and fourth quarters get the Pack last year? A huge failure in the fourth quarter of a playoff game.
I say teams need to learn to finish strong and I believe this team is a hell of a lot better at that important phase than past teams. Adversity is good for teams during the regular season to prepare them for when it counts. With all that said it would be good to get it together in the first halfs.
Finish Strong. GO PACK!
A big reason for those late-game point differentials is that in years past, particularly ’11 and last year, they had large leads going into the second half a lot more often than this year.
Oh really, I have seen that history lesson. I would submit that those teams never learned how to finish games when they count and it did not serve them well in the playoffs. Adversity and overcoming adversity in regular season games in the second half and fourth quarter shows a young team, as the Packers usually are, how to play out the all important second half and fourth quarter in the playoffs. If your team is hardly ever in those sitatutions you never gain those all important experiences that are going to occur when it counts.
Why do some people even read this site? Anything resembling critical analysis and you start fucking crying and calling for Monty’s head. Go read packers.com they’ll pat you on the butt and tell you what a great year the packers are having.
oh no, the slightest criticism over there and the great and pompous Vic Ketchman will ban you for life!!!
Someone finally came out and said what us so damn obvious. Thanks
That thank you on Janis was to you.
Because this is nothing but fucking complaining! Some of the worst analysis that I have ever heard in my life! Yeah, new England so so awesome, they went 10 years without winning a super bowl. And you are comparing them to the most successful team over the past ten years. What about the other 30 teams in the league? Wow…. While the packers won’t win a super bowl with their current level of play, I seriously hope I never see any of you faggots commenting on this team if they do go on a run. Including Monty.
Monty doesn’t like that word.
You’re in big trouble Mister!
