Re: Green Bay Packers 2009 Season Thread

just rewatched the game on nfl network replay:

jolly's headbutt has to be one of the worst penalties i've ever seen. probably one of the worst football decisions ive ever seen.

atari bigby is god awful.

i couldnt find a single good thing to write about the first half. 3 weeks in between favre-ageddon's to get healthy and the first half mirrored the game at the metrodome.
the packers got 2 huge breaks in both games with the matthews fumble on ADP and the grant "fumble" that wasn't called or else both games could have been even worse.

i was thinking how sluggish the team always looks and how they never seem to play a complete football game. Bedard's article says it perfectly.

knock on wood...while this team still commits way too many penalties to do anything late in the year, i have been impressed when the turnover ratio. arod does hang onto the ball a lot longer than he should, but he's pretty good at not giving it away (cutlahhhhhhhhh)

thought this would be a game to see if the team belonged in that second tier group of teams in the nfl. i guess they could slide into the 6th playoff spot, but i think they're in a spot where they need to win 4 in a row. wins v. sf and dallas would go a long way.

Re: Green Bay Packers 2009 Season Thread

very disappointing game.

i feel this team is talented, so its gotta come down to coaching. every week they look unprepared and lack discipline. mccarthy has to go.

+1 TT has to go too. Bottom line, they treated this game like some preseason game, thinking they just had to show up and would win. I mean the whole rotation of the line during the game, knowing they would rotate during the week. It was like they said, "ok this is the game we use to decide who are line is going to be the rest of the way." They forgot one thing, this isn't preseason, this game counts and you have to win.

This 3-4 scheme really isn't doing anything they weren't doing last year! They still get turnovers and make plays (although I haven't checked numbers, but I think less sacks this year) but they can't stop the other team when the game is on the line.

And sorry to say, but the same holds true for the offense, they look great the first 50 minutes of the game, but can't get it done when the game is on the line!

Rodgers has the a better WR core than Favre ever had IMO, so of course he is putting up the numbers. Even beyond that I think Rodgers is well above avg QB with a long career ahead of him. But my buddy who watches the games with me said, "while Rodgers looks great in games, but while Favre and Freeman are making plays, Rodgers just isn't" He just means they won when it counted and so far we haven't seen that with Rodgers yet!!!

I agree. There are too many coaches sitting around that are much better than McCarthy, some with Green Bay ties. I think the Packers with their young team and good organization would be an attractive job for guys like Cowher, Shanahan, Gruden.

Re: Green Bay Packers 2009 Season Thread

i dont understand the TT hate. its not like this team isnt talented. he put it together. they are young and getting better. he has done a terrible job assembling and offensive line but thats it, every other position he has done a great job at.

also, rodgers did a great job of making plays last year, so i dont really know what thats about. the packers had an extremely impressive 2 minute drill last year, and this year. the problem is on the defense, or special teams.

the line is the most important part of the unit. O or D. if they can't rush the passer or stop the run on D, or open holes or stop QB from getting sacked. Matt Millen used to forget about the Oline as well!!! Lots of Talent outside of the line on the Lions in Millen era!!!

What kind of 2 minute drill have they had that was good. Last season like 5 times the D blew it, as they did Sunday, and the O couldn't answer any of the 5 games, (Ten, @Min, Car, Hou, @Jax, @Chi) when there was over 2 minutes in 4 of the 5. No different Sunday!!!! 2 of those were OT games but all of them the opposition scored last, with well over 1 minute and some had over 3. I don't remember much about Chi and the circumstance, but Ten I remember the Pack failed in regulation to move the ball.

Last season the excuse was the Defense blew it, the reason why Sanders was fired. This season people are saying the same as you just did, "the problem is the defense, ST, and Oline, not the offense" but the Oline is the foundation of said offense which is where the problem doesn't exist. Does not compute!!!

Re: Green Bay Packers 2009 Season Thread

what do you guys think of the notion that rodgers is to blame for some of the sacks. definitely seen him hold the ball some, granted i've only seen a couple packers games, and i've seen it suggested by a few different places

100% agree. dont think there is a single thing to blame on offense and everything (coaching/playcalling, o-line, rodgers) need to take some responsibility.

play calling i think is the #1 issue at this point but maybe thats just me. its a lingering issue and hasn't improved. obv the o-line is bad, but it's not like teams haven't had bad o-lines before. throw in extra guys to block, design plays so rodgers can get rid of the ball quicker, etc.

going to watch the game when its replayed on nfl network because to this point i still have no idea how the hell tampa bay scored 21 points in 11 minutes and how the game was even close to begin with

+1 here. I just think there is no leadership amongst players either. No one is holding other responsible. Yes, coaches, but their just should be players that are leaders as well. Every team that is winners has one (if not more) for every phase.

They have tried to throw in extra guys to block and that hasn't worked either. That is a key reason to signing Green, because he can block. Although, I may be wrong here but I always though Jackson has never gotten a fair shot. I don't mean running the ball either, I mean as a blocker.
