Colts rally to beat Packers, 30-27

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on October 7, 2012 – 3:41 pm

INDIANAPOLIS–Rookie quarterback Andrew Luck rallied the Colts for a 30-27 win over the Packers on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

After the Packers took a 27-22 lead with 4:34 to play, Luck took possession at his 20-yard line. He quickly moved the Colts across midfield, then faced a crucial third-and-12 play at the two-minute warning. With Clay Matthews draped on him, Luck threw complete to Reggie Wayne at the Packers 32. Luck then hit Wayne again over the middle, at the Packers 14.

From the 11-yard line, Luck faced third and seven inside a minute to play. He avoided the rush and ran for a first down at the three-yard line. From there, he threw the game-winner to Wayne, and the Colts ran for a two-point conversion.

An interception by Colts cornerback Jerraud Powers early in the third quarter, with the Packers holding a comfortable 21-3 advantage, changed the game and triggered a Colts rally that grabbed a 22-21 lead.

Running back Alex Green made the big play in a Packers drive that reclaimed the lead at 27-22. Green ran 41 yards to the Colts 8-yard line. On the next play, Aaron Rodgers pitched a touchdown to James Jones.

Mason Crosby missed a 51-yard field goal attempt to tie the game with :03 to play.

    My team for the past 40 years has let me down again! Where is the passion, determination, and toughness. Blowing a big lead to a crummy team is just pitiful! Not protection for Rodgers……just a poor effort. Forget he playoffs!! This team has no heart or killer instinct!

    What the hell was that? Burning a timeout to save 5 yards on 2nd down is a little aggrivating. Can’t really blame Rodg for doing that. But where was the breakdown in getting the play off in time.

    I don’t understand what is wrong with the defense. Get some pressure on the quarterback. Two years ago, they were after the qb every game. The personnel hasn’t changed much (aside from the huge loss in Nick Collins). Giving up 30 points is not going to win games this year. It did a few times last year, but the offense is just not there this year like it was last year. Part of that, I think, is injuries, but it is not excusable. This franchise is based on winning. For once, I’d like to see McCarthy show some fire; maybe that is what the team needs.

    We really need to get a new D coordinator. After what just happened, and last year the whole year was terrible. 2010 when we won the superbowl our D still gave up huge plays all the time. Yes, we get some int but if we don’t get int we never stop them. If you disagree please make actual points.

    Well we drafted all defense this year. Think we should draft all new Offensive line next year. This is ridiculous. Learn to pass block. Seriously. And I think Shields needs to go. He made so many mistakes that cost us. I hope Devon House is coming back soon. And why in the hell couldn’t we cover Reggie Wayne!? 200+ yards receiving? If he does that to us what do you think Megatron will do to us!?

    The Packers have no focus or drive this year. They just seem content and unemotional. Why even be out there if your number one goal isn’t to win a Super Bowl. Also, the referees are still horrible, almost as bad as the scabs. That pass interference call was one of the worst I’ve seen.

Our defense can’t stop the pass. Moving on. Our offense is garbage, too. Rodgers can’t throw an accurate pass. Rodgers can’t read the defense and takes way too many sacks. Our offensive line can’t block. Our offensive line can’t protect the quarterback. I could go on and on. I’ve been a packer fan for 30 years. Bring on the criticism. The truth hurts. WE ARE TERRIBLE! LAUGHABLE.

    The overall effort of this packer team is a disgrace to the city, fans and organization. The performance looked half-hearted and sloppy. There is no excuse for what happened today. This wasn’t just a one game mishap but has been a reoccurring theme so far this season. The offense says it should be “worried” just like the defense last year said that they weren’t “concern”. Here’s a reality check, if you keep playing garbage football and stay complacent than kiss the season goodbye because this packer team wont even make it to the playoffs.

    What’s sad is our coaching made no effort to double team Wayne who was their whole “O” the entire game.

You have a tight end in Jermichael Finely who you really don’t need with 5 wideouts and D.J williams. Our season is going to be horrible without change we are still a pass first team when running the ball will be more benificial to the longevity of our Qb’s career .

    This team has no heart. Probably takes after the coaching staff still riding on the SB season. It does not matter if your QB is MVP if the team lacks the will and tenacity. Isn’t it ironical that the last blotched snap was a misunderstanding between Saturday and Rodgers. Scott Wells should not have been let go and Driver should have retired last season. It looks like our coaching staff at key positions are not good. Joe Philbin seems more valuable that we we were led to be.

    Extremely disappointing! This team just goes to sleep at times… Offense goes “missing in action” and I’m sick of hearing how great Dom Capers is as the Defensive Coordinator. The 2nd half of the Colts game looked like the 1st half of the Seahawks game. Rogers is a very good QB seems to lack passion (comes off the field and goes straight to the bench on the sideline). Pass russ on Defense was a joke the 2nd half while protecting against the pass rush was equally a joke in the 2nd half. I blame the Coach McCarthy for calling a horrible 2nd half and not instilling any emotion and determination with the players. The Coaches and Players should be embarrassed! I’m quite disgusted! Reality check… Rams and Texans are both playing hungry. Do not be surprised if we lose those two games on the road as well (unless we start Coaching, motivating and playing to the level the Packers should).

    I know many of my fellow PackerNation members disagree with me on this. However, it may be time to just acknowledge that this team is not that good. Granted, they can get better. They have a lot to get better at to resemble a good team.

    They have major problems on offense, Defense, and Special Teams. That’s a pretty bleak outlook. With Houston and St. Louis on the road in the upcoming weeks they could realistically be looking at 2-5. I am not saying that will happen, but it is a distinct possibility given the schedule and how they have been playing.

    It’s hard to pinpoint with this team because they are so inconsistent. At times they get good pressure, others they have no rush. Sometimes they cover well, others they are way too soft. The O-line has been consistently bad but the offense as a whole has been up and down.

    Despite my doubts, I wouldn’t be all that surprised if we beat Houston next week. We have the talent. Yet, this team just doesn’t have the look of a good team that we can count on week in and week out.

    It’s going to be a strange, if not altogether disappointing season, the next 12 weeks.

    This loss is worse to me than the Seahawk loss

    They came out in the second half with passion we did not

    They made some great defensive adjustments and stifled our offense. We actually played worse on defense and stopped the aggressive play that was working in the first half.

    They made some offensive adjustments , we clearly did not make any we actually just lined up and kept doing the same thing that wasn’t working!

    Heck we even played bad on special teams: ( two missed kicks and a couple of kick off returns we should of stayed in the end zone

    So as losses go it was a complete one on all levels, Offense , Defense , Special Teams and COACHING!

    That game was extremely frustrating. Defense and offense came out to play the first half and decided to just sit back and relax the second half. Come on! You cannot expect to get anywhere playing games like that. They better wake up or we’re looking at no playoffs this season.

    Offensive line has always been an after thought to Turner. Capers defense had one good year and they went to the Superbowl, not working now or thru wouldn’t blow such a strong lead. Real problems with coaching here especially on defense.

    OK, I wish the Packers would read these blogs. You all are a complete disappointment. For you to not have any fight, any passion about trying to win a game shows that you don’t have what it takes! Even if you would have won this game you still have loss respect from Packer fans because of the way that you have played. Here are some tips, if your starting players are not producing I would rather see you put a bench player in their place that will play the game with some fire. I wish I could say that bad calls have resulted in your loss but its more than that. You have not played with heart. I am seeing other team members on the sideline talking getting excited etc. But when I look at your sideline I don’t see that at all! No talking on the sideline and no communication on the field. You don’t play like a team you play like a bunch of guys on a pick up game that are just getting to know each other. Finally, its time to get rid of certain players..woodson, williams, jones, bologa and gennings. None of these guys can produce, too old and too slow to play this game anymore. If the rookies are going to give us more passion on the field PUT THE ROOKIES OR THE BENCH PLAYERS IN AND LET THEM PLAY! You have not only lost this season but you have lost the support of die hard fans like myself.

    in the second half…why not start running screens…get Cobb involved…the only person on the field letting out passion! slow the pass rush.

    totally frustrating…I really dont think we deserve the playoffs…but I at least hope that we can build something for the future this year and its not a total waste…

    This downward slide started in the NY Giants regular season game last season. They came out expecting to win and got smacked in the mouth. However, they found a way to win that game. But, that being said, they were no the same the rest of the regular season. If anyone was surprised last year by the Packers getting beat by the Giants, then they haven’t spent much time watching this team. I saw it coming the whole way. I hoped completely that I was wrong.

    Now, I was really hoping that the Seattle game was a wakeup call for this team. I was wrong. This team is still asleep. The fans are the only ones who take the wins seriously. I don’t know what the problem is. The lack of heart is a realy issue though. When last season started, they looked hungry to repeat. After 10 or 11 wins though, they couldn’t have cared less. Maybe the worst thing to happen to this team was winning a Super Bowl when they were that young of a club. They almost act like they have nothing to play for now.

    I hope, with my last bit of hope for this season, that they face this adversity early and get themselves into a “win or go home” position. They need their backs against the wall to play at their best. That’s sad to say but they need something to motivate them or don’t even take the field. I’m sick of watching a very half assed effort on the field and then having to watch their commercials in between.

    It comes down to the defence. Teams win with 21+ points every week. Allowing the other team to score 30 points? now that’s horrible. The defensive coaching is killings the packers. Last week we should have been in man on man coverage, this week we should have put 2 guys on reggie wayne every play. Obviously he is the only one andrew luck even notices. As far as the offence goes… The o-line does need to step it up, but it comes down to the revieving core. It appears to me that they aren’t even trying to get open, and dropping passes constantly is not the way the “best team in the NFL” wins.

No passion, no technique, cockiness when one or two plays went their way , lack of consistency, and just watch, they players and coach will say that they need to improve, but they won’t say what they’ll do to improve. I hope they drop all the way to 2-14. They need to feel hurt, shame, embarassment, and anger. Maybe then, they’ll stop worrying about their stupid dances in the end zone, paycheck, and cockiness, and start playing with passion, technique, and true DOMINANCE. Perhaps they should watch a HOUSTON Game, and take notes. The Packers play like crap. The worst college football team could walk over this Packer crap!

    Can’t believe the game I witnessed, but the negative comments I am seeing here look just like the ones from the fans of some other team, some team that loses more than they win. Some teams are running hard out of the gate, while teams that set the standard in the recent seasons (like the Packers) have been heavily scouted and figured out, and will have to adapt to that. This is a challenge for the coaches—to develop the schemes that will buy back the edge over the other teams. I do think that the players went into this game with lower expectations, against a team that expected much more of itself, and had something personal to rally around. But the Packers are a unique organization, and we will recover and post many more W’s than L’s.

    I have been a Packer fan all my life, and today even though the game was supposed to be on Fox, here in Illinois, Fox had England Championship Soccer, so I could not watch the game. What happened? I was checking the scores on my computer and it was 21-3 at the half. My wife and I and two friends were up at Lambeau Field in August, and watched practice, and while there we were disappointed – there did not seem to be much emotion or enthusiasm even in training camp, except for Clay Matthews. This does not look even like the same team as last year. I see that Rodgers was sacked 5 times today. Where is his protection this year?
    Very disappointed and hope the Packers right the ship soon.

    Poor performance on both sides of the ball today. I really don’t understand how the same personnel on the offensive line from a year ago can perform that poorly this year. I believe Rodgers has been sacked 25-30 times already this year. Things seemed to be alright in the first half but what a big change in the second half. Rodgers does not seem the same this year either. I am sure that getting sacked as often as he has does not help and all the dropped passes by the receivers when he does get the ball to them. Don’t even get me started on the defense – it is just as horrible as last years! Dom Caper needs to be fired and get a new coach in there sooner than later. Change up the personnel and get back to a 4-3 defense! It is ridiculous to see ANY team consistently 3rd down and long and make it so easily every time. I agree that the team lacks any passion or fire and shows no sign of urgency. Too many 3 and outs on offense this year which has not helped our despondent defense. Very sad day indeed and does not look to get any better in the weeks to come with the opponents that the Packers have to face. I sorely disagree with those who have stated that Green Bay had one of the easiest schedules in the league this year! Very sad day for Packers fans especially losing to one of the worst teams in the league!

    This team is hard to watch. They have no intensity whatsoever. They can’t block. They can’t stop the opposing offense on 3rd down. There are so many things wrong. The amount of talent on this team is arguably the best in the league, yet they can’t produce a win to save their lives. They blew a 18 point lead to a rookie QB. This is a shame. Rodgers needs to stop being a baby on the sideline and do something other than hold the ball for 8 seconds. Yeah his line isn’t at all protecting like they should, but he should adjust to it, along with the receivers. I’ve probably took years off of my life stressing about close games like this when they shouldn’t even be close at all. Get it together! This is Green Bay!

    Earth to Coach McCarthy: The long passing game is not, I repeat, not there this year. Therefore, the offensive line cannot hold the defensive line and sacks of Aaron Rodgers are the result. In the second half, a short- to medium- passing game was needed along with running game which, once again, appeared to be abandoned.

These receivers are talented, get back to the quick hits, slants, etc and let them run after the catch. Trying to hit the home run in one play every time.

    Quit complaining about the protection!!!! Complain about the vertical routes we keep running on third and short. Complain about trying to hit home runs on every play. We run no short routes to tighten up the safeties. How can a lineman protect a quarterback for 10 seconds? He can’t. Aaron is responsible for at least 2 or 3 of those sacks. We need to run more short routes and get into 2nd and short, 3rd and short. Right now our offense is being stubborn take what they give you.

    All you guys are targeting the defense right? Well when the offense is going 3 and out just about every series in the second half, it takes its toll on the D. Could they have played better? Of course. We can’t place the sole blame on the defense though. The offense was terrible in the second half. They couldn’t beat a high school team in those 30 minutes. Injuries may have played a role, but Mr. MVP should have been able to be a leader to his offense and lead them to victory. The dude has all the talent in the world, more than Favre, but Favre won games because of his leadership. This is something that I don’t think Rodgers has grasped. This game better light a fire under their asses or they’ll go 2-4 or 2-5 or maybe even 2-14. Their first half play was great. Moving the ball with ease, stopping the Colts from scoring, and everything was clicking. I don’t know what happened at halftime, but they were obviously not ready to play. Maybe Finley’s agent was right: Rodgers is not a great leader at all.

    Congratulations to Dom Capers for once again failing to stop a mediocre team that had to come from three scores down to win this game. A five point lead with the ball deep in their own territory and the Packer defense, showing that last year was not a fluke, allows the Colts, with a rookie quarterback, to go the distance. And Rodgers, good job not seeing Green on the goal line on the two point conversion. Perhaps it is time that you get your head back in this game. With the Texans next week, you pretty much can say good-bye to the playoffs. And I actually thought that this team could go 14-2 and win the Super Bowl following the fiasco in Seattle. The way this team is playing, the Packers are going to be lucky to finish .500. Obviously, not a happy Packer fan.

The defense couldn’t touch the QB, couldn’t hold on to any possible interceptions, held opponents more than a two year old holds his/her stuffed animals! They bitched about every call, which they have no control over anyway! They couldn’t stop anything! Notice I didn’t say tackle, because Packer players don’t know what it means to tackle let alone know what it is! And what’s worse they’re being way overpaid to look this terrible! All you Pack Fans! Shut Up! Don’t be so optimistically naive. Be more critical with your team! Perhaps, then the leaders of the organization, or lack thereof will listen, take a hint, and actually do something about it!

    Horrible. Rodgers says he is more focused on being a “better man” than a “better football player”…great. Just wake up a play better footbal while you are signing the checks or retire. Protection was garbage, but Rodgers holds the ball too long ala 2008, and we have no killer instinct as a team whatsoever. Enjoy the extended offseason boys.

    From what I am reading in some of the comments I read above I think it’s pretty unanimous that there is definitely something terribly wrong with this Green Bay Team. Could it be the coaches? The older players that are just not cutting it anymore? The way we prepare the team for each opponent? What is it? You tell us, the fans. Where are the Green Bay Packers that we have learned to count on to go out there and win those games their losing? We are the ones who are being hurt by this. We love these guys. We want them to win at least most of their games, but this is ridiculous. 2 and 3, come on! This isn’t the Packers we know. Can someone please come up with a solution to their problem and let’s start playing some football for crying out loud. Go even our season to 500 next week against the Texans and that will make us happy again, or at least for the time being. Nuff said, carry on.

    First of all, I apologize for my poor english.
    As a great fan from Croatia, I can’t understand that there is no support of the offensive line. It looks like Aaaron is playing on his own against the opponent.
    Where was Bulaga!? Once more! This fat assh…
    Almost every sack came from the right side!

    I’m really disapointed. We lost against a Roooooookie!
    Watching the NFL espacially the Packers this season is terrible.

    I spent a lot of money for MY team. But I’ve learned by time: That’s it! There WAS a team called Packers!
    Last time the Def and now the Of!!! Good bye.

    If something isn’t working, try it with violence!

    Thank’s to the whole team! I’m living and dying with you! And now go on and kill me!

    This team is an absolute disgrace to Green Bay! Maybe if they thought more about playing and less about making commercials it would make a difference. It’s a team that has no fire or heart what so ever! This is coaching which causes this. All coaches reach a point where their time has come and this is the case with Mike. It’s his job to inspire and have a team ready to play. I’ve been a fan since the first Super Bowl teams having been born very near to Green Bay, and I have never felt as bad about a Packer team as I do about this one. We had a lot of years with very poor teams but they always played with heart and emotion. This team is just all in to itself. I’ll still be rooting for them but after they get destroyed by the Texans next week the season will be over.

    Rodgers needs to stop reading his laurels and start playing with a little emotion. He was reminding me of Cutler as he went over to the sideline to pout after a few of those plays. everyone who saw no emotion was correct. Luck looked like twice the quarterback Rodgers was today. I agree our play calling has been terrible as we cant seem to make any adjustments at all. Lets go green and gold, stop looking like green puke!

    This team is a joke. I cannot believe the laziness that they display on both sides of the ball. Marshall Newhouse is the worst OL on the team yet he still plays. He is big and stupid. They have NO defense…NONE!!!!!! The Defensive Coordinator is awful. Dom Cappers does not know how to run a defense. He sticks to zone coverage too much. They have the DB’s to play man and yet they don’t. This team is pathetic. I see them going 7-9. They will NOT make the playoffs. Not with how awful they are playing. There is no urgency or heart put on display by this team. They are going to fininsh in 3rd place in the NFC North.

    In some cases it looked like Rodgers was holding onto the ball too long and he was no where near as mobile on his feet as in the past. The D has improved, which I am happy to see. But they still have work ahead of them. BTW what ever happened to the psycho defense? The O line really needs to protect Rodgers better and open up lanes for the RB to go through. And they really need to dial up a much better offensive scheme. Of course it is way easier to sit here and gripe instead of being in the thick of things and having to actually make the decisions that actually impact the game directly. Regardless I still have faith that the Pack can turn things around and make it happen. Otherwise I suspect Vince Lombardi will really be spinning in his grave.

Darren Perry and/or Joe Whitt Jr. should be the sole Secondary coach as the Corners and safeties can’t work together. MM needs to hand off play calling duties to a real O coord. Not sure we have a real one. In other words, this Coaching staff needs an overhaul.

The NFL has this team figured out, and the Packers are too arrogant to change. I called 9-7 at the beginning of the year. I hope we can be that good, at this rate I doubt it.

    Agree with a majority of the posts.Indy was the better team today. Saw this game coming right after Rodgers threw the interception. WE can turn it around, but I am beginning to believe that Capers is not the defensive guru anymore. I am tending to agree that we need a complete overhaul of the defense. Should never have let Jenkins go and should not have let wells go. Chemistry with a team is so important, and we are not showing any at all. Too many rookies and not enough leadership.

    At some point this organization will need to look at the coaching staff adjustments that were made in the past year. I don’t know much about football, but I wonder what a former running back/running back coach knows about pass routes for wide receivers. Also, Rodgers would appear to have significantly more knowledge than the stiff that is the QB coach. Can’t help but wonder if my qualifications would make me a candidate for the coaching staff. The players clearly are not adjusting and playing up to potential. Receivers not breaking off routes, pass protection, and a veteran players unable to complete blitz pick-up. Just a few things I’ve noticed since the beginning of training camp.

    What is going on with the Packers? They need to stop doing so many commercials and focus on a set game plan for the offense to win the game. Aaron Rogers was scrambling all over the place and the offensive line sucks! Greenbay needs to wake up and start winning games!

  214. By george on Oct 7, 2012 | Reply

    Injuries are killing us on offense. Once Benson went down the colts did not take the run threat seriously. Opposing Def. coordinators have figured out how to defend the passing game and passing game needs to be changed up. It appeared that Rodgers was always going for the big strike and it wasn’t there. The Colts did a great job in coverage. Rodgers was successful with the 3 step quick pass to Jones and Cobb.

    On defense there is no push from the def. line sufficient to allow the Mathews, Smith, etc. to get to the opposing qb. Also the secondary is tripping over one another to intercept, once today and once last week. Also the secondary is dropping too many potential interceptions.

    Finally, there is no killer instinct like early last year and in 2010 in the late season Super Bowl run. Today in the second half there was not urgency until we got behind and then we left too much time on the clock for the defense. Last week and this week the defense looked like last year and the offense isn’t good enough to make up for the defensive deficiencies.

    Like I said earlier in this thread, you can’t survive on a steady diet of 3 and 12’s and constantly force the ball vertical when everyone in the building knows what your going to do.

    This team does not seem focused anymore. Rogers isn’t making good decisions, he’s holding the ball too long with an offensive line that can’t seem to block bad breath. Capers is too timid on defense, refusing to send blitz after blitz against a rookie. Finley seems to catch a cold better than he wants to catch a ball. There seems to be no pride at all, either in the team players or the coaching staff. I’ve followed this team since I was 10 (I’m 62 now) and rarely has one of their teams disappointed me any more than this one….because this one has the talent.

    The Defense is not the BIG problem anymore, it is the offensive line. For Rodgers to get sacked as much as he has been sacked, there is something Seriously wrong. He used to be able to spend a minute in the pocket. There is something seriously wrong with the Offensive Line. He does not have the protection he used to have. He cannot make the plays he used to make because he does not have the protection and time. Also, the WR’s need to HANG ON to the balls. That would help. The Offensive Line is broken. The Defense is way better. The Offense needs to stay on the field longer so the Defense can catch their breath.

    Guys, it’s only 5 games into the season!!!! It’s true that we need to obviously do better (blowing a nineteen point lead is going to kill us!), but think of the Packers in the Super Bowl last year. We were going through many hardships, many injuries, it was a pretty devastating season. I think this team will survive, however, they aren’t playing with the conviction, emotion, and “rawness” they had in that 2010/2011 season. They are going to pull through or they’re going to fall flat. That’s all there is to be said.
    I believe this loss was extremely nasty. However, I’m hoping it’s a wake-up call for this team. Play too cocky and then you think you’re on a cloud. That’s when the other team takes advantage of you. The team can’t play like that.
    Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery of Raji, Benson, and Finley!

    It’s time to face facts, the Packers have somehow become a bunch of prima donnas that read all their pre-season hype and think they can win games just on that. Perhaps they need to be reminded that a football game has 4 quarters and 2 halves, and real professional teams actually plays both halves and all 4 quarters. It’s also time to face the fact that Rodgers has slipped from elite status into the realm of ordinary, and the vaunted receiving corps appears slow and lackadaisical. The secondary has decided it’s actually easier to bend and break, rather than just bend. And while none of us know what the practices or the locker room is like, I can imagine that there is no real fire coming from McCarthy or Capers. Otherwise we’d be seeing a professional team with pride. This team has neither. I hate to sound alarmist, but the Packer emperor has no clothes, certainly not Green and Gold ones.

    Terrible clock management at the end of this game. We were out coached by the Colts! We came out in the second half and their coaches made the proper adjustments and ours did not. The o-line is bad, but Rodgers wasn’t much better. Andrew Luck out played Rodgers! Prepare yourselves for a suckfest this season.

    Only hope, is that it.’s a long season. Giants were 9-7 last year and we know where they ended up. Hopefully we can get a Wild Card spot.

    Who thought we’d miss Joe Philbin this much? The offense is lacking the fine details that made it elite last year, and this is partially Mc Carthy’s fault but more Clemens fault for not being able to stress these finer points.

    Having said that, If we are lucky Finley will be out for an extended period of time, and the Packers can redirect their offense away from the one man drive killer. Quarless coming back will also help, but that’s a few weeks off yet.

    The defense, while awful at the end, was worn down by the lack of any production from the offense in the second half. When an the Packers’ offense can only manage 24 minutes of possession the entire game, we’re lucky they weren’t blown out more.

    In times such as these, you have to look at the coaching and the owners. Remember, more than any one, the owners are unforgiving. Remember how Mike Sherman was run out of town after the Pack nose-dived years ago. It all thing blew up then. The team was full of injuries then, but the coach was cut. I think the owners cutting Sherman, in a way, was worse than the whole Brett Farve thing. The Packers had become losers again then, and the Packers are losers again now. I think the injuries do matter personally and I do not believe you should blame the coach, but the failures we all saw today had little to do with injuries. They were motivational ones. In so many areas, the Pack is not focused. This situation seems to be clearly one that is a matter of coaching than anything else.

    I’m just as positive as anybody else, but guys, look how far we have to go. I mean we couldn’t hold a 21-3 lead against a rookie qb and a very banged up Colts secondary.

    We could not shut down…excuse me….we couldn’t even slow down the only receiving theat the Colts have. Lucks eyes were locked on Wayne almost every pass play!

    Head coach’s primary responsibility is to make sure the team is ready to play. Look at this coach’s history in the first quarter and you’ll see that it is anything but that – very inconsistent. Head coach or offensive coordinator but NOT both. Anyone else notice how to stop the Packer’s running game??? Let them run. As soon as the coach realizes they can run the ball up the middle at will – he’ll STOP doing it for some obscure reason. There should be no such thing as a “pass first” concept – it’s “win first”. If you can run the same play up the middle all day, do it. Rodgers is a great QB fully capable of getting out of the run when the box gets stacked. That’s all their offense should be doing unless they’re forced to pass every down. But then again, this coach didn’t like Favre changing his great play calling with audibles either. Hmmmm, team with great talent being held back – IMO. This all fixable but “a man’s got to know his limitations” first.

    Wow- it is amazing just how much 3 players can make a difference. The Packers finally get it going on the ground with Benson, he gets hurt, and the run goes to hell. The defense has great penatration up the middle, Raji gets hurt, Luck steps up in the pocket and tears up the defense. Finley is drawing multiple defenders, leaving others to get open, he gets hurt, and the pass offense goes to hell. Don’t knock Capers- he called a hell of a game. The packers will get through it.

    i’ve been a packer fan for a long time, i’ve seen ups and downs with this team, but i’ve never felt more embarrased than i am now, with the way this packers team is playing. This is a prestigious franchise that i will always be a fan of, but i’ve never seen a packer team like this play with no heart, drive or even the want to win. Maybe some of the players should do more old spice, pizza hut, and double check discount commercials. This is a team that was a superbowl champion 2 years ago, and was in playoff contention last year, and almost had a perfect season. I know, i’m only a fan, what the hell do i know about the sport of football i’m not a coach, and i don’t know the lives of all of these football players, but something has changed with these players, i hope that the 2-3 record is as bad as it gets, and we end up going 13-3. But it still feels like they are not playing with the same heart as they have for years.

    You are no fans of the team, you are whiners, pessimists and blame the team. Yes, it was a bad game.
    It wasn’t horrible. No one person deserves the blame.
    McCarthy is one of the best coaches in football, if you have no faith in him then you don’t deserve to be a Pack.
    Woodson is physical and a ball hack. If you don’t see his qualities, you know not football.
    Dom Capers is one of the best D-Coordinators in the league, yet you want his head every game.

    It is a collective effort. Not just one.
    O-Line failed, QB held too long, WR dropped passes, DBs missed assignments, Injuries, no running game.
    We were flying before Benson got hurt.

    Your attitude towards this team is disgusting guys.
    Learn to accept a loss. Luck played well, Wayne outplayed us. He caught his passes. We didn’t. Brown ran the ball well, Benson got hurt.
    McCarthy was at it all game. You guys just don’t appreciate this team.
    Ever since the SB our fans have become so diva-like and just plain whiners.

    I love the Pack. I wish them best luck next game and to keep working on it.

    Calling out fans for being disgusted when their team plays like a bunch of scrubs (like today, when they got beaten by a rookie QB and one WR) is a good way to get attention for yourself.

    Is it unreasonable to expect your team, who finished last season 15-1, to beat the Colts? Do you just clap and say “maybe next week” when your team goes 2-3? No, you don’t. You get mad when your team quits in the second half and loses the game by 3 or you’re not a fan. You’re just watching the game because there’s nothing else on.

    Coach McCarthy has to take the blame. The most serious problem is teams getting 1st downs on third and long situations. Evidently, whatever package they use is not working and when you cannot stop third and long, you will lose. This area needs to be addressed in a serious manner.

    I just left the game a half hour ago and couldn’t have been more frustrated. This team lacked focus today. And there is a bigger concern now that there have been two games where receivers aren’t getting open and still too many dropped passes. Besides Jennings, no one is showing that they can take a game over or be counted on. Rodgers is clearly hanging onto the ball too long which accounts for more sacks then you would find on other teams. And the defense- where do you start. They got good pressure today but were poor on containment, particularly on the edge. Can we all just admit that Burnett is simply average in coverage and it’s time to look elsewhere? With Houston upcoming, the Pack could be staring at 3 or 4 games out of the Central. Sickening!

That’s 6-1 versus 2-5. IF the Packers win EVERY other game this season they still need the Bears to play 5-5 just to have a tie for the division.

    Let’s face it. GB is already facing must-win games. When you’re in that spot in week 6, you’re in a world of hurt. This team is not making the playoffs this season. Too many holes, too much ground to make up, zero margin for error.

    Grew up a Colts and Packers fan, but my Colts are #1. What I saw this game:
    Tale of two halves, without a doubt. Virtually every Colt fan Ive talked to about this game all week, we expected either a blowout loss or a close loss. EVERYONE was picking the Colts to lose. At half, we were getting virtually everything we expected. Blown coverages, Luck on the ground, unsure of Vinateri’s FG abilities.

    Second half: Something just, snapped. Im not sure that the Packers made any adjustments what so ever. But the Colts??? They picked up blitzes. They suddenly were able to cover the WRs on Defense, as well as suddenly we were able to get at Rogers. Totally unexpected effort on the Colts part, and totally unexpected LACK of effort from GB. Packers better figure this crap out, they’re so lifeless now for stretches that its sickening.

    And for those who are saying ROOKIE QB… Well, he would have been #1 overall last year had he chosen to come out then. His ceiling is off the charts at this time, and he has some great targets to throw to, Reggie Wayne obviously the prime one.

    Hey, Someone tell Chuck Woodson & the Packers that the Colts are going to throw to Reggie Wayne on this play.
    Which play?

    PS: Game count:
    4 BCAP’s (Bad calls against Packers): the refs are getting better!

    4 AT’s: ALMOST turnovers: where the Packers ALMOST had a turnover. (I think the Pack has that play when 2 defenders run into each other and neither intercepts the ball down pat!)

Offensive line totally SUCKS!!!!! Hey Capers,ever heard of MAN TO MAN defense,or are they not able to play that?

    Hey Vic, here’s how your closing line should have read on that last second field goal:

    ‘Crosby not only missed a last second field goal which would have tied the game, which he is paid millions of dollars to make; not only did he miss that field goal under perfect conditions in a dome; but the kick was so wide, it even missed the net!’

    one thing to think of for this year the year the pack won the super bowl they were 10-6 anything is still possible but the offense has to get on track and the defense has to play 60 minutes they are playing good but not getting the turn overs that would change the out come of these games is whats killing the season

    Too much negativity! I agree with some of it, Dom Capers must go!The 3-4 must go! Cedric Benson is not the answer.The offensive line isn’t terrible, Rodgers is holding the ball to long but if you watch this “great” receiving corps they run their routes don’t get open and just stand there.The main problem is Defense. We have two pass rushers and what seems like 7 Defensive backs running around not covering anyone. we only have 2 linebackers, thought it was a 3-4 D, where are the other LB’s? Clay and Waldon are doing great but are not true Defensive ends. Where is Devon House? His status said he fully participated in practice. Woodson was great but hes only mediocre now. We will still be in the playoffs, Keep your heads up high WE ARE PACKER FANS! GO PACK GO!

    The Packers virtually must win EVERY home game from here on out, beat the bad Rams on the road (which is no gimmee, but as close as the Pack will get).

    Then they have to win at least 2 of these road games, just to get to 10 wins:

    at Houston, at Giants, at Bears, at Vikes, at Lions.

    Hard to see how it happens with this defense. That’s the best team in the league, the dfending champs, two division teams that are 4-1 and a Lions team that threw for a million yards the last time these teams played. Maybe it happens, but it’s just hard to see right now.

Sometimes adversity is the best thing that can happen to this team. I have faith in our coaches and players to get it done. It’s still early in the season please don’t panic. Keep thinking positive.

    It’s gut check time. Win or go home this early in the season is a difficult position to be in. What’s sad is the talent that is on both sides of the ball and their streaky performances. It’s time for the team to get some fire and desire to win or go home. Right now it’s all about go home. So, put on your big boy pants and start earning the pay check you are getting and playing like the Pack. Finley, if you come back from the shoulder ding…catch the dag ball stop acting like a diva and catch the ball. O-Line, seriously you look like a bunch of Division- II college players block and fight to make holes for your backs & protect the QB. The backs…it’s not all Cedric start running like you have the desire to gain some yards. Receivers…dag where are you? No one is afraid of you anymore so make them afraid catch the ball. D-Fense….really you need Raji to fill the hole, none of you can step up and make a play? Can’t rely on Clay, he’s double teamed, chipped blocked and avoided so until the rest of you start making plays you will continue to look pathetic. Blaming it on the coaches, yeah that’s an issue, their play calling is average and has become predictable. get some fire in your team….or start benching them. Crosby….really I won’t even waste my time. Rodgers, not sure what to say about you. I’m not used to seeing you whining and pouting. Man up and lead the team!! So WIN OR GO HOME!!!!! GO PACK GO!!!!!

    OK most of you are seriously over reacting! To say this team sucks is pretty harsh. Of course, 3-2 is not the record we want, and neither is being 2 games behind Chicago & Minnesota, but I am still hoping they can turn it around.

    It just seems like Rogers is having a hard year, he doesn’t seem to be seeing the field like he normally does and he isn’t bouncing back from mistakes or setbacks very easily this year (the interception today is one example). The second half sacks can, at least in significant part, be attributed to the lose of Raji. And it seemed like Benson leaving affected everyone too.

    I do agree that they don’t seem to be playing like a team and they are lacking the heart to keep going. This is probably a leadership breakdown but whether that is Rogers or coaching is hard to say. My opinion is that Capers seems to be past his hayday. I don’t understand a lot of the defensive looks, they were doing so good with pressure so why back off or, at the very least, why not go back once you realize its not working?!

    Hoping for an upset next week… get on board everyone.

    For everybody who is getting down on all the fans who are ripping on the packers I understand where ur coming from but, you really r insulting ur own intelligence and real football and real packers fans. Anybody who really loves the packers like I do would be extremely upset they literally look like children trying to play football that last first down luck ran to pick up was the most embarrassing and shameful attempt I have seen in the nfl in recent memory if ever I have seen a more childish and unprofessional attempt to tackle by two nfl players ever the packers players had a free shot at luck running staight at them and they must have been scared or something because they barely touched him and what do u know he picks up the first down that was it for me i’m sorry but i love the packers and always will. however I also have self respect and will not take foolish pride in a team that has all the talent in the world to probably be the most complete team in the nfl if they werent so into themselves. If anyone who is a true packers fan doesn’t see a real problem with the way the packers are playing you obviously don’t actually watch the games or if you do you must not know whats going on if you actually watch football and no i dont mean just watching the game i mean really watching the game and knowing football you would realize this team is in trouble. Rodgers is not the same as last year he’s indecisive thats not a leader he doesn’t have time to make plays and hes not getting out of the pocket like he used to when he needs to hes not the same quarterback as last year he’s off target apparently doesn’t know how to read defenses or doesn’t have enough control over the audibles really only so much can be put on the line alot of those are coverage sacks and being an mvp that shouldn’t happen. I’m starting to get the feeling that he’s arrogant and thinks he’s better then everybody else he just walks off the field sits on the sidelines and pouts he’s not looking at pictures or talking to anybody our supposedly best receiving corp in the nfl can’t even catch a football there’s obviously no communication there is no rythme our running game which has been non existent for the past 3 years is starting to look better then our passing offense that resulted in are 15-1 record last year. our whole team looks lazy and just unprofessional they don’t look like a nfl team. the play calling on offense and defense is just horrible how do you become a coach in the nfl if you try the same things over and over again even though they didn’t work the first time this is the nfl if you ask me the packers were lucky to go 15-1 last year once again this is the nfl the only offense the packers had last year and in to this year is the passing game and specifically big plays. what happened to the quick short timing throws that the packers offense blossomed from oh wait the receivers drop all of them. things need to change the packers are playing with no purpose yet when i sit down in front of the tv on sunday my purpose is to see the packers win something this team is more then capable of accomplishing and when thats not happening simply because the players aren’t playing to their full potential i’m not proud to talk up that team my home team the team that ive watched since i was old enough to watch a tv. when the packers one the last superbowl i was very proud to overcome everything they did that year and become the best in the nfl wow i was proud it doesnt get much more exciting then winning it the way they did and thats also the reason i thought they could be a dominant team for years to come because i didnt think they were a team that would let things go to there head. thats not the case and if you really watch football like i said you would see this it started last year towards the end of the year this isn’t a new development you could also see it in the preseason everybody says preseason doesn’t count well it counts more then you think it does when the first team packers offense is on the field for one possession and they can’t get in the end zone you have problems and what do you know it followed us right into the regular season but even i had no idea it would be this bad i thought they would get it together by now clearly they haven’t and it’s alot worse then you so called packer fans like to make it seems i’m a true packers fan and if you were you would realize we have big problems not just because we had a bad game we have problems from the coaching all the way down you can see it in the players there not even playing hard. everyphase of the packers game is bad except for well i would say special teams but we know thats not true so i will just say tim masthay is our mvp right now.

If you are going to kick like that you might as well go for it on 4th down all the time.

    No offensive line talent, and no defensive line talent (maybe Raji)! Football is still won on both lines! And the Packers are not very good at either! Add that to McCarthy’s passing game, in which Rodgers has to throw the ball 30 yards downfield every play! McCarthy is no better than Mike Martz! They both do the same thing! After the Seattle game I told you that this team doesn’t trust McCarthy. And the last two games, shows they don’t!

How does a team with the best record last year, lose an 18 point lead to the team with the WORST record last year? The Colts had 9 rookies on offense, and yet they walked up and down the field on the Packer defense! Thompson should have to answer about the lack of talent. I see that neal played today.

    Come on guys support your Team, be proud to be a Packer Fan!!! Things are not right at this point but they will get better. There are still 11 games left in the season which is more than enough time to get hot and place in the Play-offs be it NFC North Divisional Champs or Wild-Card. It does not matter where you start only where you finish, look at the Giants last year and the Pack the year before.

    After 1973 to 1985 where we only had one winning season I think that we can suffer a few lost games this season. If you are a true fan you will support your Team when they are at the top, when they are at the bottom and when they are in the middle regarding their record.

    You can blame the coaches or the attitude or the heart or the refs for these losses, but the reality is this team isn’t that good. They had the worst defense in the league last year after letting Cullen Jenkins go in free agency, and they did little to improve it. This year they let Scott Wells go in free agency, and the offensive line looks terrible. These are just a few of the losses that are hurting this team. You can’t replace pro bowl talent with has beens and never will be players, and expect to continue to be a quality team. They’ll win some games because they still have a lot of talent, but they need to fill some holes before they’ll be elite again.

    This was definitely a tough loss to take. I was at the game too and it was sure a tail of 2 halves. From feeling fine to terrible in just one game sucks. I still have confidence in the packers and so should a lot of you others who seem to be giving up. Remember there’s still 11 games left. We’ve had a lot of bad luck and unfortunate things happen this year at this point. The offense needs to change some things up like run the ball more and stop trying to go deep all the time. With a shaky oline it won’t work like that every play. Defensively its hard to really blame them when theyre on the field for over 80 plays in the game due to your offense not being out to sustain drives consistently. I’m beginning to question capers though because he seems to keep the same d in there the whole game and not adjust. Wayne literally had one guy (shields most of the time or woodson) on him the whole time.

    I don’t think the D-line was responsible for this loss. The guys did almost the whole time a good job.

    But where was the O-line? How many times was Aaron sacked this game? How many times in the five games by now!!!

    They still have a lot of talent, but the leadership is non-existent and the play selection is awful. This loss falls on McCarthy and Capers.

    I think McCarthy game plans by playing Madden because the play selection (shotgun w/15+ yard routes) is very Madden like. Blame the OL all you want, but in the 1st half when they were running and throwing short, they did very good. When they went back to 15+ yard routes /7 step drops, it is no surprise the pressure was getting to Rodgers. Hell, they can send 5 or 6 and play cover 2, which they did.

    You’d figure with all the TEs they have, we’d play a little more power football with 12 (1 back/2 TEs), 13 (1 back/3 TEs), or a 22 (2 backs/2 TEs) personnel groupings. At a minimum, an RB, Kuhn, and a TE (21 personnel grouping) need to be out nearly every play with Rodgers under center for most plays.

    This team is a good running team with the right personnel groupings. Throw in some quick slants and quick outs and this is a tough team to stop and they control the clock. They would also allow the D to rest. 3 and outs in 30 seconds will leave the D winded.

    As for Capers, I like the 2 DL nickel, but he is awful at making adjustments and too often takes the middle ground on play calling. He needs to either be 100% passive and send 3, leave one to spy the RB, and alternate between cover 2 man under (double the #1 WR) and cover 2, or be 100% aggressive and send 6 with cover 2 man under (2 WR or less sets) or cover 2 coverage.

    WOW- what a huge disappointment. Pretty stunning to see a total melt down on offense, defense, and special teams in the 2nd half after dominating an inferior opponent in the first half. Simply put, this team lacks the mental and physical toughness to impose their will on any opponent and put together a complete game. The performance breakdowns were evident everywhere in this game- poor pass blocking, receivers not getting open, Aaron missing throws/holding the ball far too long, no running game, predictable play calling, missed sacks, dropped interceptions, penalties, missed field goals, and way too many easy 3rd down conversions for the Colts. In spite of good effort by our Dline, our defense somehow managed to make Andrew Luck look like an all star today. The closest the Packers have come to a complete game this year was against the Bears, and that was was mostly a defense driven victory- our O line got man handled by the Bears. The fans have pegged it- with a very tough Houston and St. Louis coming next on the road, the Pack could be out of it very soon. You’d have to be in total denial to think that the players are 100% responsible- the packers got seriously out-coached and out played today. …Jobs need to be on the line…

    I’m here today to write about my frustration with not only the Packers, but the whole NFL too. Why do the Packers always have to damn choke in the most critical situations in a football game. Last week we fumbled, and this week we missed a field goal. We always make stupid mistakes. If the receivers are not dropping passes, Aaron’s getting sacked. I’m also tired of most Packers’ fans who blame the defense for every loss but it is the offense that is holding us damn back this year. We need to score more damn points. Hell Mercy!!!!!!!
    I’m tired of trying to defend the Packers this year and then they keep turning around and letting me down. To many people are injured.
    And then, my problem with the NFL is the way the refs don’t make calls that should be called. It’s because of a stupid mistake by the officials that we are in this situation in our division. And then some calls that are made and not made by the refs are critical, and can turn an entire game around. I’ve finally grown tired. And the thing that disgusts me the most is that most fans don’t care how they win. They don’t care if they win by an official’s mistake and the players who win don’t care either. There is no honor in football at all.
    I’m tired of the Packers losing and I’m tired of stupid mistakes made by the officials and other games. Until the Packers get on a winning streak, I’m not watching football. I maybe bored, but my mind will be at peace.

    Here is another thing to think about!!! We have a ton of recievers/tight ends. JENNINGS is UNRESTRICTED after this year!! Yes very talented but does anyone remember JAVON WALKER? In my opinion he is more valuable as a trade because of the draft picks we can get, besides so far in my observation he really doesn’t seem to want to play this year. oh yea he has an injured groin, did JERRY RICE ever have that? Jennings base salary this year is 3.885 million and being unrestricted it will go thru the roof. Also trade Jermichael Finley. Get DONALD DRIVER BACK ON THE FIELD. Both Jennings and Finley have more drops in the past 3 yrs than he has in is whole career.

    Its not the O-line fault. Rodgers holds on the ball way too long. 2-3 seconds, any longer is on Aaron. In addition, Aaron simply is not playing as well as he did last year. Missing alot of open receivers.

    When the Packers won the SB in 2010, I mentioned to my son they were 1-2 plays away from not winning it. I was happy and proud, but felt a bit lucky.
    Now we get to last year, 15 and 1 great! But after that 1st loss the edge or juice was gone.
    Since we were 13 and 0 last year, we have gone 4 wins and 5 loses. See a pattern?
    There are only 2 elements, COACHES COACH, and PLAYERS PLAY.
    Either our coaches aren’t doing a good job, or we have players not playing well. I think it’s both.
    The biggest problem as I see it, is when coach Philbin left. He did most of the offensive game planning. McCarthy helped, but it was mostly coach Philbin. Look at our playoff game last year. Does it look eerily similar to this year? Now we are exposing McCarthy as being somewhat incompetent at offensive game planning. Driver, love him, but time marches on. Finley, please replace him!
    Then we move around a number of other coaches, who are not coaching in their specialized fields. Clements is new to offensive coordinator, McCarthy can’t adapt.Edgar Bennett a running back is now coaching wide receivers. When Philbin had the job of offensive coordinator, we could adjust mid game. Not anymore.
    On defense, again, either we don’t have the coaching or the players. Which is it? I think a combination of both. Capers either needs better players, or needs to adapt better to what he has. Woodson is done. Replace him now. Can’t get much worse. Our defensive backs coach needs help in teaching communication. We never seem to be on the same page.
    We need some emotion, spark, fight in this team. Everyone we play seems to be about 3 octaves higher than us.
    I’m sure all of our coaches are great human beings, grat character people. Now we just them to be great coaches!
    If our Packers can get lucky to get to 10 and 6 this year, that would be a great comeback. but I’m afraid they would fall short of the playoffs. What an embarrassment to be behind the Vikings and Bears.
    These are our Packers, we will get better. Let’s see if this year is gone, probably. But we will get better.
    Maybe Ted Thompson needs to be looked at. Not sure yet. But he is responsible for all of this.
    This is painful, but I will never loose faith, and will always back our Pack.
    Keep the faith. We are still the best franchise in the history of football. We just need to build it again.
    We will!!!!!

    Just an addendum to my previous post.
    Teams are never as good or bad as they seem.
    One other observation made by my son. It seems almost every time we have a long field goal, (45 yards or more), if the ball is on the right hash, it will be missed to the left. I believe he is correct. Ball needed to be on left hash to have a chance on the last game tying try. I’m just talking about Crosby now.

    At best this is a 9-7 team. Granted, the blind zebras haven’t helped the cause this year. Yet, when you give up back-to-back 2 touchdown + leads with no answer to the other teams scores, you’re going to lose. McCarthy’s play calling on first through third downs is abysmal. Off tackle, off tackle, throw it on third and long, punt? At least he can send in the punt team correctly. Packers won’t be making the playoffs even as the wild card team.

    First off I gave up on this blog a long time ago, because at times it seems like it really got away from the Packers and football. But I would not be a good Packer Fan if I did not put my feelings in today which to be honest are a 100% right. Next week is a must win game for the Packers. The only way they are going win it is to get whoever is calling the plays to start calling plays that take time off the clock and get first downs, it does not matter if they run the ball or throw, but they must have fast short crisp plays and take time off the clock, you have to bring the secondary up so you can throw long. Rogers has to want play next week, he is sitting on the side line not ever looking at the next play, he is not showing any emotion for his team or play…there is a moral problem on the Packers.Dom Capers is probably one of the best in the game, but he needs to get out of that box at least for one game and get some moral back into that defense, they have been playing pretty good this year, but when your offense is putting you in bad spots and you can not count on them, you need to switch things up, because you get tired and you give up. The Packers as a team need to stop the comercials on TV, they can not seem to handle fame and still play football. There some bad calls this year against the packers it sucks, but self pity does not win football games. On paper the Packers should be tearing people up, but thier moral is down and thier play calling sucks. Unlike most Packer fans I do not think that the team is all Aron Rogers, Aron needs to get his head out of his ass and focus on his team and football, but the team has to start catching balls and getting focus, you can not win on a name and looks alone. Next week is the season for the Packers, it is over for them after next week if they lose. I am the last entry on this blog, I am sure no one will read and I know I will get put down by Mr. Cheese Whiz and a like. But All I can say is go Pack!!! This is my first and probably last entry for the year, from a true Packer Fan.

    With his career-best 362-yard passing effort Sunday, Andrew Luck set a Colts rookie QB record. The 18-point comeback also was the best by a rookie quarterback since Matthew Stafford led a 21-point rally for the Lions vs. the Browns in 1999.

    Come on .. the Colts don’t suck!! They are a very young team .. 30 new guys on the roster this season .. and reported by many that Luck is the BEST QB to come out in the last decade. Remember .. Manning was 3-13 his rookie season. They are just young enough, talented enough, and have just enough verteran leadership to be dangerious.

    Go Packers!! The defense is questionable as it was last year, even with the 15-1 season. A few new rookies may provide some speed, but the defense as a whole needs to be reevaluated and adjustments have to be made. There have been leads of 20 or more at half time for many a games, so for the Colts to come back is feasible, but there are issues on both sides of the ball for the Packers and bad decisions have been made offensively and missed plays defensive that, with McCarthy, will be looked at before the Texans/Packers matchup.

    This has to rank in the top ten most lethargic 2nd half performances in Packers history. A complete collapse on defense and a pathetic effort by the offensive line. Do we need adjustments on defense? No. We need a complete do over. Note to coaching staff: Clay Matthews can’t do it all by himself. Do we need a young center who can flatten a defensive lineman? Yes, more desperately than even the coaching staff realizes. We also need depth at offensive line and we need to start looking now. The game in Houston is going to be painful to watch. It might be better to sacrifice Harrell the horrible to the Texans instead of allowing Rodgers to get beaten to death by the utter failure of the offensive line to protect him. I am afraid this team is heading to 8-8 (if they are lucky enough to get even that far).

    Looking at the rest of the schedule, might win four games. Good thing packers were ranked so high to start to give the players the impression that they just have to show up to win. It’s time to unlesh the rookies as the veterans prove that they do not care to win. This way they also gain expence, maybe.

GB has been to 3 SB’s in the last 15 years and won 2 of them. They went 15-1 last season. I’ve seen the same whiney crap on so many oher blogs including Bears blogs…it’s silly. Look, this Packer team isn’t the same as last years’ or the year before. There are injuries, players left, coaches left, and management folks have left….it happens in successfull organizations…they get picked apart. I mean really, the center and tackle are new and you are expecting the same high level of pass protection? It hardly ever works that way. Fire Capers? Fire McCarthy? Crazy talk…but maybe Capers is warranted, but no Nick Collins, Cullen Jenkins, and maybe Desmond Bishop are big losses. Weren’t you singing their praises after the SB? Of course you were. Rodgers’ is playing terrible? Really? He had a 103 rating…but any NFL quarterback is going to struggle being under pressure. Hey he didn’t throw 4 picks did he? That’s what we Bears fans have to suffer with time to time. It’s a rough start but things can change with a snap of a finger (or thumb in the case of the Bears’ last year). Maybe I’m crazy, but when a coaching staff wins a SB and then follows up with a 15-1 season and then you all turn around only to accuse players of having no heart…I think they deserve some benefit of the doubt.

    It starts at the top.Thompson needs to go, he lest o & d linemen walk, fails to sign any help when needed. Capers time has come and gone, not enough pressure,always looking for the turnover instead of solid d. McCarthy fails to make adjustments, how many sacks/ hits does it take for him to have the t/e chip a rusher, bring in a extra t/e, keep a back in to help out a weak o line and keep Rodgers off his back. I’ve never been a Thompson/McCarthy fan, and never will. McCarthy is a offensive coordinator at best, ad Thompson is a good talent evaluator/ scout but a terrible gm, he cheep,and it appears if he didn’t draft a player, he doesn’t want him. This will be a longer season than the Dan Devine/ Phil Bengston days because there is more talent on this club.
    Just the observations of a 53 year Packer fan.

    Packers are absolutely terrible. I was at this game, and at the beginning of the second half, i knew the game was done. This team has yet to finish a damn game. It doesn’t matter what team it is, McCarthy tries to put the game on ice and exposes the defense.

    I’m not saying the defense is good, but no team is going to win when your defense is on the field that long. McCarthy needs to give up his play calling, its the worst in football. I can only shake my head at how predictable it is.

    Also, they need to cut Finley. that guy is a heartless bum. 17 dropped passes in the last 20 games. the guy is built like Calvin Johnson but plays like Dez Bryant.

    As a die hard fan of the Packers, i can’t help but be sickened by this loss. I saw absolutely nothing positive about this game other than that Finley got hurt. maybe they’ll find someone who can catch the damn ball

    Well, hopefully we can get the Jaquars when they come up, but we’ll be 2-5 then. Wild card is the best we can
    hope for now.

    Well Well Well. I guess the Cinderalla story has offically come to an end. The secondary needs replacing, Aaron needs better protection and the “GREAT” fans r turning. Stand by ur team. They will be back in force Macarthy is no fool.

    Wow, I not think this is a Cinderella story and if it is, is not over. They are a GREAT, GREAT TEAM, up’s and down’s but in all a GREAT TEAM. So, they didn’t win, a big, great, heart fan has Green Bay Packers in her or his heart every game and all year roud. I do.

    I don’t understand how the offensive coach can’t figure lanes for a running back. Terrible play calling. No heart in playing. Defense is inconsistent. NO pass rush. Can’t believe this team went to the Super Bowl and won. I know there is a problem with this team and it starts with heart. It looks like they quit in the second half. That is a coaches problem. Wake up and at least play with pride.

    Lombardi made it VERY clear. “You players are hear for one reason. to WIN a championship.
    Time to stop talking……Start doing.

    Defense is truly awful. Crappy tackling, crappy coverages, crappy scheme. After watching the 49ers play defense you can really see the talent difference between their team and the Packers. Those guys play hard and with passion. Our defense looks lost.
    It may be a long bumpy ride this year…….

    I also agree that MM needs to have someone else call the plays, there is no creativity and has become predictable. Other teams have us figured out, it’s time to adjust something….anything.

    It has to be said if we lose to Houston on Sunday (and given how we are playing at the moment, I think we will) then our season is over. And we have to do some major rethinking on players and more importantly, our coaching staff. Capers has to go, pure and simple. This defense is horrendous and has been since he got there. We have the talent on D, but the scheme is a joke. I’ve never been sold on Mike McCarthy. Remember, this was the man who was a QB coach in one of Favre’s worst years and then helped choose Alex Smith over Rodgers in San Fran. Under his coaching Smith didn’t throw a TD pass until the last game of the season.That said, I think the Super Bowl win gives him a shot to right the ship, but it won’t be long before the words “hot” and “seat” are bandied about. And I agree with those on here who are saying that we are playing without heart at the moment. Rodgers just doesn’t seem to give a crap and his body language is just terrible. Findlay needs to be gone – can’t catch an STD in a brothel. And in next year’s draft can we please, PLEASE get a running back in the first round? I’m sick of hearing, “oh we like what we have?” Why? They’ve nothing so far. Starks is a third round back at best when he’s healthy, and Alex Green might be the real deal, but he’s clearly not good enough to spell Benson until he’s injured. Hopefully he pans out. Oh, and draft on the O-line, for Christ sakes!
