Packers’ Season Gone, Down To Vikings 24-17

55
fuck these fucking assholes

There it goes, my friends. That must-win that must have been won was shitted away, just like the rest of them that needed to be won.

The Minnesota Stinkqueens, beat the Green Bay Packers and maybe a playoff shot, but no shot. The Packers go down 24-17 to those fucking shitdicks.

The Packers tried to feed the ball to Aaron Jones with 17 carries. He ran for 72 yards and a touchdown.

A delightful theory, but also not great when Aaron Rodgers is shit. Rodgers went 17-of-28 for 198 yards, one touchdown and no picks.

The same shit, the same bullshit, we’ve seen all season.

Shut him down. The Packers are done. There’s no point in playing Rodgers anymore at this point. He was shit from the beginning and he’s been shit the whole way through.

The good news is Mike McCarthy should finally be gone. If that Buffoon can keep coaching for the Packers, then the Packers are just as fucked up as we thought.

Mark Murphy.

Go coach for the Browns, Buffoon.

Jerk Cousins torched the Packers for 342 yards, three touchdowns, no picks. Hell, if the Packers could get a pick this year, it would be a goddam miracle. Recover a fumble? A near Godly-like event.

The Packers’ defense was injured, with Mike Daniels being the big missing piece and Nick Perry being the obvious missing piece, but they were railroaded. Just like they were in the fourth quarter of that 29-29 tie.

It used to seem like the Packers should keep Mike Pettine when they let Gravy Head go into the fucking wind, but fuck both of them.

Dial up a blitz once in a while?

Garbage, garbage and fucking garbage.

That’s where they all need to be thrown.

    Currently, that stupid fucking tie is working against us for draft position. We’d be in the 7th slot instead of the 11th.

    Roll up the sleeves, we got more ‘work’ to do.

    • Icebowl

      0-6 on the road……
      Total lackluster performance – definitely no chemistry in this group…

      Given the current state of this “team” They’ll end up doing better than 7th in the draft ….

      As for MM getting the axe – still believe he will use team injury excuse to hold on longer
      …. Though when they drop into last, below Lions it may be hard to justify keeping the coaches…

      Wonder if Bruce Arians would consider the job in Titletown and let MM go to Browns …..

  2. Skinny

    Rodgers with more shit throws. But hes having a great year statistically so who gives a shit if they aren’t winning games.

  3. PF4L

    I just don’t understand all the anger. I mean….what were the expectations?

    Lets try to focus on the positives….

    The defense held Cousins to under 250 passing yards in the first half.

    The Packers offense looked ok in the first half.

    The defense held the queens scoreless after the T. Willy “miscue”.

    Jason Spriggs looks like he has future in the NFL.

    Going 2 for 10 on 3rd down is a hell of a lot better than going 0 for 10.

    We have 2 first round picks and maybe one in the top 10.

    We held the queens to 24 points, our season average, this season…and last season.

    I could go on and on with positive superlatives.

    We have Championships to win in the next 5 years people.

    Chinupnsmile!!

    What, pray tell, is this new Offensive Playbook of which McCarthy speaks?
    Meet the New Playbook, same as the Old Playbook.
    Packers 2018: R.I.P.
    Alas New Playbook, we hardly knew ye.

    Well, that was underwhelming. I think I had more fun starting the game an hour and a half late on DVR and seeing if I could catch up to the real time broadcast. No problem.

    Remember when the Packers would score around 40 points a game with ease? Now they struggle just to get to 20 points. How about the last half of this game? THREE WHOLE POINTS. The last half of last weeks game in SEA? THREE WHOLE POINTS. That’s six points in 4 quarters when you should be closing things out. The most important quarters in the game, and it’s not like they were in the lead coasting to the finish line. Ridiculous.

    One thing is obvious, this team lacks discipline. You know where that starts? From the top. If you’re going to return punts then you need to catch the ball or get out of the fucking way. You can’t chalk this up to a rookie mistake either, Tramon.

    I heard some talking heads saying that it’s too early to fire McCarthy based off of his successful record, and because Sean Payton missed the playoffs three years in a row, now they’re arguably the best team in the NFC. Well, the Packers are going to miss the playoffs this year, they missed them last year and probably should have missed them the year before when they started out 4-6. The year before that, in 2015, everyone knew it was just a playoff appearance and nothing was going to come of it. Which brings us to the year prior to that, 2014. The NFCCG in SEA. The biggest chokefest in franchise history. A game that is defined by three words “Lack of Discipline.” This team hasn’t been a legitimate threat since that season. Even before that game no thought that GB was gonna win, but then hey, they could actually win this thing!…. Nevermind. It doesn’t matter that they lost though because no one thought that they would make it that far anyway, right? Free passes for everyone all around! Except for MM’s buddy Slocum who should have been gone years before.

    I’m not sure what the Saints problem was for three years. I hear that it was defense. When’s the last time GB had a worthy defense? 2010? Even today the Vikings only scored 24 points. Not like it was some barn burner. They were even spared 6 points from the shitty kicker. I bet the Saints offense could score more than three points in the second half of games. I don’t see McCarthy turning this ship around. It’s been sinking for a long time. If they stick with him I’d be shocked. What circumstances would they give him where he could stay? Strip him of playcalling and tell him to finally act like a head coach? They tried that before and it did nothing, not to mention MM forced his way back into playcalling halfway through the season anyway.

    I’m not sure what to be excited about with this team anymore. Each year they’re progressively worse than the year before. It’s one big downward spiral. They’re at the point where they can’t even make the playoffs with a full season of Aaron Rodgers. Something needs to change. Until then, I’m going to have a hard time not borrowing PF4L’s tagline.

      Broken.

      Delayed (record) DVR. The only way to watch the game. No commercials, no 3 hour plus time investment. Rewind plays. No rushing to get home. Just make sure you record and no worries.

      • PF4L

        I’m not going to say the talking heads are clueless but……

        They don’t follow teams on a daily basis like fans do. They don’t watch every teams games like their fans do. I don’t care if they once played in the NFL, that doesn’t give them some superior knowledge about the current condition of specific teams. They can give opinions of play they see and that’s cool, but otherwise, i disregard much of what they say.

  6. Mike

    Same shit week after week. Lack of discipline is right on. More special teams penalties and turnovers. Lucky to not get one on the fg at half as well. More shit drives by the o, especially in the second half. Same shit on third downs, take a sack or incomplete and punt.

    Again, no pass rush whatsoever. How many times did we miss tackles horribly or run into eachother? Bad passes on what used to be guaranteed tds and big gainers. Not really an excuse but since it’s been a repeat week after week, might as well add more injuries to the list. Today was Davis, the ol, and others.

    Hate to keep mentioning it but can’t help but wonder if some games might go differently had they kept Jordy over Cobb.

    Bottom line, this is just a bad team. No road wins and look at the teams they beat at home: two average teams at best in sf and Miami, if they had their starting qb all season. Pack beat both facing their backups, and almost lost to sf. Beat a bad buffalo team with a rookie qb. Throw in the w they pulled out of their ass opening night and that’s all the wins. Nothing impressive at all. Any average qb tears them apart and the o just isnt talented enough to outscore teams week after week like they used to. At least now (hopefully) Gute can bring in his guy and start over. They will be done with Cobb and hopefully perry. Matthews as well unless he agrees to come back cheap but I doubt he’s back. Could get rid of graham as well. That would give some flexibility to maybe bring in some help via free agency. Again, we seem to say it every year but after free agency, use the draft to get better and fill the remaining holes. Unfortunately, there’s so many holes, this could take a while.

    There is some merit to waiting and being patient. It has certainly paid off for the Saints. Only, my issue with that is even in those bad years for the Saints, they still had good to great offenses. McCarthy still has to go. If the offense was performing, it would be worth CONSIDERING giving him a pass. Rodgers, I dont know what to say about him. I feel like he isn’t making plays in key situations. Some of it isnt his fault, especially when Jason Spriggs is playing LT. I hope it is simply a combination of his knee not being 100% and MMs offense. If it isn’t, and Rodgers is indeed declining, the packers have other problems

    • PF4L

      McCarthy’s “pass” expired Jan 18th 2015 imo.

      Besides GGT, who talks up McCarthy? Anyone? I don’t remember a player having McCarthys back, or saying even something positive about him. Matter of fact, nobody brings him up at all.

      Players on some other teams seem to back their coaches sometimes on a weekly basis.

      Now, as far as the O-line. When is someone going to tell me wtf Cole Madison is doing?

  8. PF4L

    The Packers needed to lose this game. The Packers needed to NOT run the table back in 2016. All that run the table accomplished, was prolonging the agony.

    We lost….big deal. Can we end the agony now?

  9. Deepsky

    Maybe Rodgers’ collarbone isn’t healed correctly and that’s causing him to miss open guys. Maybe his legs are gone and he can no longer escape or square up effectively. I have heard from fans who go to games regularly that Rodgers misses wide open guys all game. Maybe he’s been hit so much he’s gun shy. If these are true, firing McCarthy isn’t going to help. If these are true, welcome back 70s and 80s Packers.

    I actually hope Rodgers simply isn’t making the effort anymore because he’s fed up with McCarthy.

  10. Donald Welsh

    Don’t go to FLATDICK Murphy’s Title Town Disneyland andquit going to games and quit watching this BS. til they fire No Stones McCarthy!

  11. Only one question I want to hear asked of MM and Murphy. Has the team approached MM or his agent about a contract extension? I would not believe the answers, but I would like to see the initial reaction from both.

  12. MM²SUCK

    Where to begin . . . Well, for starters loved hearing what the pundits were saying (8 years too late! lol! but at least they finally are!) that MM’s offense is running the same plays from the late 90’s Lol! They also mentioned that the Packers have failed to draft good WR’s (among many other positions lol!) for quite some time. They were mentioning Buffoons LACK of game time management skill. But I firmly believe that if someone sitting at home with a bunch of house guests to distract them can say that the Buffoon’s first two plays called would be Aaron Jones running to the right guard for little to NO gain . . . I would say that Buffoon’s play calling is a bust as well! If I can call this out, how do you think the Viking’s feel about knowing this? It has to be a fucking joke to anyone playing against the Packers knowing most of the time what this charlatan of a coach is going to call ahead of time! Just “pin your ears back” and run full tilt at em’! Good God! when are they going to tar and feather this Buffoon and run him out on a rail? A few nice scores later, then BOOM! No adjustments after halftime, the requisite Packer injuries, and ST fuck-ups. Followed by a “gassed” Defense and an equally clueless and BORING offense in the second half . . . game over! Hell, after the Packers scored first, some of my guests said that the Pack looked good! I said to just give it more time, and that they would lose 24 to 17. Well they fucking did! both of the guys that heard me say that were in awe after the game . . . Well I can venture a guess that most of us in here could have guessed the same as I did . . . if not the score, the obvious loss that the Packers would earn . . . and they certainly earned it! BTW, WTF is wrong with Rodgers? Is it “Buffoon Burnout”? Or is he physically just a shell of his former self? Or is he just “mailing in the season” now? FIRE Murphy, McCarthy, Zook and Russ Ball Now! The season IS over. Start playing Kumerow NOW, rest Rodgers knee and shoulder for the remainder of the year and see what Kizer and Boyle actually have as backups . . . start building for next year.

  13. Kato

    Enough with the Jordy Nelson bullshit. He doesn’t make this team a super bowl caliber team. Does it look like they should have cut Cobb instead of Nelson. Yeah, probably. But wtf does that accomplish? Like PF4L said above, why prolong the agony? The packers desperately needed a season like this. A losing season WITH Rodgers playing. Rodgers NEEDED a season without Jordy, and be forced to play with new, young wide receivers. Drew Brees has had to do it. Tom Brady has had to do it. That is the way the NFL works, there is roster turnover and you adjust, and coach up. The far worse move was not getting Khalil Mack. But that has been rehashed enough. Now we can get a fresh, hopefully competent playcaller.

    Why did McCarthy punt last week and go for it this week? I mean, having the balls to do so was ok I guess, but in that situation it was a huge play in the ballgame that was going a long way in determining the winner.

    Again, what is up with Rodgers? Yeah the offensive line hasnt been great. But other than Jordy being gone, not a whole lot has been different. Same coach and playcaller as the previous 10 years, so it is kind of hard to blame MM for his struggles. If Rodgers is really that reliant on Jordy Nelson, then that is not good either. Jordy has a pretty short shelf life, and other people around the NFL seemed to confirm that with a lack of interest besides Jon Gruden, which well, tells you a lot.

    • PF4L

      I’ll agree on Mack.

      But Gruden or the rest of the NFL doesn’t tell me shit about Jordy’s polific scoring with Rodgers, you don’t just “dismiss” 21 tds in 22 games. Maybe you don’t realize this, but those are record setting numbers. I know…i know….Jordy got old when Rodgers broke his collarbone. Makes sense to me.

      You brought Nelson up (shrugs)

      • Kato

        So, if Jordy elevates Rodgers that much, why wasnt there a rush for teams to sign him to a large contract? How much longer does Nelson have? Not much longer. He scored TDs. So did James Jones in 2015. Notice how James Jones career was over after that season? Rodgers needs to develop chemistry with younger receivers. Plain and simple. It will help his career longevity.

        • Cheese

          James Jones led the team in TD’s the year he came back and got paid minimum salary while Cobb got paid $15 million to be a #2 receiver. Does Jones catch on anywhere else? Nope, but I’d gladly take that production here if no one else can make it happen.

          • PF4L

            In other words, if i may Cheese……….

            Rodgers didn’t elevate Nelson, Nelson didn’t elevate Rodgers.

            Jones didn’t elevate Rodgers, Rodgers didn’t elevate Jones.

            But together…TOGETHER, they were scoring machines….call it chemistry, call it whatever you want….

            I called epic, prolific, record breaking, VERY RARE, next level performances.

            It takes 2 players…..next up…Rodgers/Adams

    • WestCoastPackerFan

      McCarthy is an idiot, and this week’s version of the punt decision blunder was the perfect and infuriating illustration of his incompetence. While he was focused on blowing his top to the officials (congratulations, jackass on showing some emotion finally, I guess) about the missing seconds on the play clock during the timeout he had to call, he should have been re-evaluating his decision to go for it. The Vikings were certainly re-evaluating the situation and preparing to stuff the run, which they did handily.

  14. PF4L

    Good post MM²SUCK.

    Ah…where to start?…..concentrating on the last section starting with Rodgers….don’t know, maybe Buffoon burnout, maybe he’s pissed off, maybe he’s just off, maybe he misses his QB coach, his TD machine receiver.
    I can go to the line, young receivers who always…always need time in this offense (Adams and Jordy weren’t superstars in their first year). I’m thinking it’s all of the above.

    I’ve been with you for awhile on Zook and especially Russ “how much would you like” Ball.

    Yes, the season is over, but……..Rodgers and McCarthy have to act like there is still a shot (The Company line). But when there is a 3% chance of making the playoffs after 11 games. IT’S OVER.

    Here’s where we differ….if this team is going to grow, i keep Rodgers in to get some game time with the new receivers, it has to be done for growth of St. Brown and MVS. Give them the Lions share of attempts. Not sure what’s going on with J’Mon Moore, but i’m guessing it isn’t anything good. But it would be nice if someone shed some light on it. I also tell Rodgers to work out with these guys in the off season. For his money, he shouldn’t have to be told to do it, he should have it planned already.

    But yea…. also give Kizer some snaps, maybe the 4th quarter of the last 3 games.

    PF4L….OUT
