If the Packers win tonight, Matt LaFleur will be the first Green Bay coach in history to win their first 4 games. To the best of my knowledge, Vince Lombardi is the only other coach to open at 3-0
The weather should be pretty mild so no issues there
Philadelphia Eagles fans are the worst in the NFL, but you already knew that

To win, I think the Packers have to score at least 27 points. The Eagles are going to score, especially in a nationally televised game. The Lions have a solid defense and gave up 24 points to the Eagles and they’re getting Alshon Jeffrey back, who didn’t play in the Lions game. There should be opportunities for the Packers on offense as this might be the first team the Packers have played all year that only has an average defense.
Interesting…All this time i thought Taylor Hart was a white guy. At first, i foolishly thought that was Cullen Jenkins
It’s GAME DAY Bitches!!! :)
I can get on board with what Deep said.
In other Packer viewpoints: I don’t know what to think about something i heard, because i’m not an insider of the NFL…but hear me out.and maybe give your .02
On Bill Micheals show today, it was mentioned that the one knock on LeFleur before us hiring him was that he was great scripting plays. But after the scripted plays and the defense made adjustments, it’s said that LeFleur was weak when it came to play calling after that and couldn’t counter with his own adjustements. Don’t get me wrong, i like LeFleur and i want to see him succeed. But it’s difficult to pass it off because it’s exactly how it’s gone down lately.
Apparently the Packers are 29th in offense after the first two drives. My first thought was if that rumor was true, is that with Rodgers working with him, both of them could counter and defeat adjustments made. Or that is my hope anyway.
I’m still saying that a big part of it is the receiving talent. If this offense is ever going to get traction, either a) Jimmy Graham needs to earn his money (or at least half of it). Or b) they need to acquire somebody. I know, i know, it’s a bad time to have to acquire someone. This is the same receiving core as last season (sans ST. Brown), so if no one makes the jump, Should we really be expecting any better?
BTW…for shits and grins…Brian Bulaga is our highest rated off. lineman per PFF.
The addition of Alshon Jeffery back into the lineup may be the deciding factor tonight. He IS that good. The Eagles are a good team that has not gotten many good breaks so far this season. They are pissed off and it is a nationally televised game. The Packers will have a tough go of it tonight. If Green Bay does not get out of their offensive funk, it will not bode well for the Green and Gold. Wentz can be a beast if given the chance. Let us trust that LeFleur and Rodgers have figured it out!
It’s ok, let them be pissed off. Hopefully after the game, they are still pissed off.
This went EXACTLY as I knew it would, Wentz 113+ passer rating / Rodgers 93+ passer rating. Eagles MAD as hell / many Packers injured. They head hunted all night. They even put one of their own in the hospital. ILB needs to be addressed asap for Green Bay. Rodgers is in the same mode that he was last year. Trying to do it all because of lack of talent and poor scheming. Could ML be MM V.2? Time will tell . . .
Jesus. There is Aaron Rodgers playing loose and flinging it. That throw on third down to GMo allowing him to go up and make a play on the ball, that was the first time I have seen Rodgers make a throw down the field and trusting his receiver not named Adams to make a play in a long time
Why do i cringe every time we attempt a run play?
Can’t seem to run, can’t seem to defend against the run.
Hope this gets worked out.
Jimmy Graham apparently only has one hand. The other is just a useless lump not to be involved in catching the football in any way so why even bother lifting it? Watch out Odell.
I know the defense only gave up 336 yards, but why does it feel like they gave up 500?
Anyway, give credit to the Eagles, no on got robbed, it was a pretty good game.
Best wishes for Williams and Maddox.
I had a bad feeling about this game. Without mentioning the running game I knew that they might own the Packers D, I knew if Wentz got time to pass, he would find his receivers. Couple those things with lucky field position, and some real LAME officiating it simply spells LOSS. The Packers are who I thought they were. An improved D in a few regards, but sadly lacking in the run game. The offense hss NOT improved at all over last years team. They still suck at the run, and the receivers are not getting open in the red zone. I do believe however, that there most likely should have been a run or two on the 2nd to last drive. That may have been the difference between scoring and not scoring. Still Not who we hoped they were. A articles ago, I mentioned the Packers complete lack of real TALENT at ILB. It has been showing up each week more and more. Martinez is serviceable at best. I STAND by that. Until ILB is fixed, expect a lot more of this in the future.
Amos was making plays .Taking out Williams looked intentional to me holding him up for a brutal hit and pulling that mask several times afterwards. Might have been essential to the Eagles win taking away an option if Jones couldn’t deliver as last week has shown . How could that not be PI after looking at it on replay? Running against us teams know to be succesfull for more than a year allready.
Anyone blaming the run defense for this loss needs to realize the offense pissed this away. Turnover inside their 20 leading to 7 points….2 red zone possessions inside the last 5 minutes…no points. 21 point swing.
I’m not going to fault a defense for playing a 3 back power attack on short rest against a team that is already in playoff mode. I’m also not going to fault the packers defense that the eagles cheap shotted the packers only ball control back out of the game on the first play.
What concerned me the most is mr davante Adam’s season is absolutely fucked. Turf toe sounds friendly but it one of the worst injuries imaginable for a skill player
And also…werent the packers a dominant run defense under capers? I think they ranked in the top 5 or so in the league for several years. They got a stop when they needed to last night and the offense shit the bed.
I agree with you on the hit to Williams . It seemed intentional. And Adams turf toe can be a very bad injury. I firmly believe that our offense has been choking way too much. But that run defense does not impress me in the least. You offer up short rest as an excuse, but the Eagles also had the same lack of rest after a tough game with the Lions. I firmly believe that the Packers do NOT have enough talent at ILB period. Martinez is highly over-rated. Until that is addressed and the Offensive play calling and HORRIBLE run blocking is dealt with, expect more of what happened last night to continue for Green Bay going forward. After the second quarter, It was patently obvious that the Eagles could score at will. When the Packers got that stop in the fourth quarter, I was totally surprised! But happy that they did. Still not the team that we hoped they were. Trusting that this was an aberration and not the reality of this teams real abilities and talent levels showing up . . .
So for not clarifying I cited short rest for s worse than normal run defense they certainly have their issues but had the offense taken care of business philly would have been forced to pass more. At the end of the day the “the offensive minded coach” and the “10 million a year one handed catch dynamo” were the reasons we lost.
I’m happy neither of those pis were called pis…i dont want officially ruining the game. I feel like the saints play should be the minimum baseline to call pis..i dint want games flipped on soft shit.
however I do have one issue with the officiating. Barnett the pos who head hunted William’s should have been booted from the game..Not sticking around to get strip sacks.
Couple other notes…bulaga and king hurt again.10 days to heal up.
Rodgers looks like hes shaken a bit of the rust off so that’s nice
And last but certainly not least 4 passes from the one. Cant say in surprised…when the pack had it at the one I knew getting the td would be a challenge given their abysmal short yardage play this year…that is a much bigger deal than the run defense imo.
Agreed Barnett is a POS. I think that BOTH run defense and red zone O are big deals and will be the difference in wins and losses for this whole season. Green Bay needs to address the O line run scheme and especially the ILB position talent. It is painfully obvious that the Packers are seriously lacking in those two facets of play.
Pretty sure we have a fullback on the active roster that is supposed to be good. WTF?
He is good. But if he is blocking and diving into a wall of defensive opponents who have already taken away and sealed gaps from our shitty zone blocking scheme, the RB following him is going to already be hitting him in the ass 2 yards deep on our side of the LOS. The run game is either poorly executed, poorly drawn up, lacking the talent to facilitate it or all of the above. We are still not who we hoped we were team-wise.
