The Green Bay Packers lost another game we figured they should have won. This time, against the division rival Detroit Lions. And largely at the hands of kicker Mason Crosby.
You want to talk about shitting the bed? Perhaps you recall this scene from Trainspotting.
There’s Mason Crosby, creeping out of that room with his shit-filled sheets.
Crosby was 1-for-5 on field goals. He also missed a fucking extra point. There’s 10 points off the board in an 8-point game.
What? Is your wife divorcing you, kicky? DO YOUR FUCKING JOB ANYWAY!
That aside, let’s be honest here. The Packers played like shit.
Fat Mike’s game plan?
Aaron Rodgers’ accuracy?
When have you ever seen that guy miss so many easy throws? I’ll tell you when. It was in 2015, when he was dating Olivia Munn. Take from that what you like.
So Rodgers went out there and threw for 442 yards. Should be enough to win, right?
Not when the same guy turns the ball over two times. Both were fumbles. Both were instances where QB1 held onto the ball too long. Can’t trust those rookie receivers! Can’t just throw one in there!
Both of those fumbles set the Lions up inside the Packers’ 30-yard-line.
That gave the Lions 10 points. Here’s a gift. Don’t even open it. I’ll just tell you. There are 10 points inside. Signed, Aaron Rodgers.
And then there was the vaunted defense that shut down the mighty Buffalo Bills last week. Shut them out, in fact.
Well, guess what.
Not so fucking vaunted.
They just couldn’t get the stop the Packers needed.
And so, we’re in the dregs. At this point in the season, the Green Bay Packers are not as good as we thought they might be. Aaron Rodgers is off. The defense is pretty much just good when they play the Buffalo Bills.
And that’s reality.
