Groan... We've Seen This Before...
Groan.... I think we all have seen this before... There were "only" 9 penalties, but it looked like the loss in the Bears game. The Packers won, but it looked close to finish of the Lions and Eagles games. Hell, it even reminded me of the 2nd quarter of the Bills game. What am I talking about. The Packers uncanny ability to leave opponents in the game, and then waiting to see if they can hurt you in the 4th quarter. The Washington Redskins and Donovan McNabb obliged, pushing the game into over-time and then hanging on to win 16-13 over the Packers.
What's to blame? Well, if one were to start casting blame around in all directions one could focus on the multiple penalties happening during key drives. One might continue to blame the special teams and their performance. Ahem, can't forget about the dropped passes. Injuries! The Packers have been slammed by major injuries. Blame that for the piss-poor play of Tackles Chad Clifton and "out for the game" Mark Tauscher who most of us fans thought were going to be the strong links in the offensive chain. Not so far. But but but the Linebackers were hurt by huge injuries too!!! After Nick Barnett and Brandon Chillar, Clay Matthews left the game. Tight-Ends!!! Packers lost Jermichael Finley and "lost a fumble-caught a TD" Donald Lee. Don't forget DE Ryan Pickett. Double-Groan.... QB Aaron Rodgers with a mild concussion??? Yeah whatever... hard to bitch seriously about losing games because of injuries.
RB Brandon Jackson just started to look like a real starting RB in the NFL. A great run 71 yard run, finishing with 10 carries for 115 yards, it's easy to see why he's valuable, he constantly breaks tackles in traffic. The John Kuhn experiment is well past it's expiration date. The Packers running game doesn't impress anybody, does not demand respect when played, and there-for it's treated exactly that way by the opposing defenses. The Packers could have won this game, but instead Redskins coach Mike Shanahan takes the victory, by over-matching and out-coaching Packers coach Mike McCarthy who resorted to his original form and game-planned his way out of winning the game.
The Packers are 5 games into this season, and us fans are already seeing familiar patterns beginning to repeat themselves... for the worse. After the dismal performance in D.C., the Packers are now 3-2 in the NFC North and looking up at duh Bears.

Now I am not responding to Kansas PackHawk to start a fight, because we Pack fans need to stick together, BUT, sure it is a nice thing that the Pack lead the league in drafted players on the roster. It sure sounds good coming out of Troy Aikman's pie hole on Sunday. Yeeeeeee fricking haw. You know what would be even better coming out of that jagoffs mouth? PACKERS WIN! Oh and it would be awesome if these 'drafted' players weren't getting stupid penalties and sucking hard on Sunday.
Screw the most on the Roster drafted. I want players on the team that win baby. Whether we drafted them or not. Hey TT pull your head out of your ass and get it done.
Oh and also, no one is blaming TT for injuries. I blame TT for his arrogance. A person has to earn arrogance. What has TT done to earn his? Nothing. The Harrell pick was SIX YEARS AGO AND THAT GUY HAS NOT PLAYED A DECENT DOWN IN A PACKER UNIFORM. Dump him. Harrell is a bust, but TT's ego will not let him admit it. TT has to go

I hope everyone is sitting down, here's a sound bite from Coach McMeatheads presser today:
Coach McMeathead: "I’m not going to answer those questions. I don’t comment on officiating. He suffered a concussion on the last play."
But I digress ……… This Coach needs to be committed to winning AND having his “players back” when it comes to cheap shots on the field of play. Our loss to the Arizona Cardinals in the playoffs last season was tough enough, but when 50+ Million people witness a mugging of our QB with a blatant face mask (The 15 yard garden variety) and the officials (again, the NFL’s finest for post season play) FAIL to toss their yellow laundry and Arizona brings the ball into the end zone for the win, it would have been then and it would be nice right now, to have a Head Coach who has the teams back!!!
I’ll say it again, the team, the organization and it’s loyal fans deserve better when it comes to a Head Coach!
It is time we fans get “Mad as Hell”

Don't get why injuries are "TT"'s fault... Come on now, he's one of the best GM's in the league with the draft minus Harrell, and that was like six years ago. You see the tiny little stat during the first half yesterday? GB tied for league lead in drafted players on the current roster, I'd say that's pretty amazing considering some of the biggest standouts (CM3, Rodgers, Jennings) are all HIS picks. The team's just not performing to their potential. We know these guys are coached to catch and hang on to the ball. Defense was exceptional in the first half. Just got to put the pieces together. I'll be in the stands next week with my fingers crossed... And a brat in the other hand! Go Pack!
Hey Kansas PackHawk, I think the only injury vs TT controversy is the Justin Harrell problem... otherwise sure, he drafted A. Rodgers, G. Jennings, even a trade-up for C. Matthews, you can throw free-agents in C. Woodson, R. Pickett, B. Chillar, then add Bigby, Williams off the street. All of them have contributed immensely and yet the Packers are not over the top... yet. Coming soon to Super Bowl near you... BK
Even though I've kept my mouth shut for the longest time about TT and Mike McCarthy. I've lost it after last nights game. They are both officially on the hot seat. NO MORE excuses. Bring in the talent to salvage your jobs and season. Yes, we have a winning record and it's not even the half way point but our schedule is not going to get any easier next coming weeks. You guys lose to Minnesota then you'll see what a community owned team can do! We got the numbers. I say we bring in some GM's & Head Coaches to our city. Have the local community invite them for a visit. See who's got the power.
I'm not going to listen to a fundamental speech or hear about using what we have a 3rd string tight end or backup QB who is 2yrs in the system. You can polish a turd but it's still a turd. Basketball season and the Bucks look that much more interesting to me.
I need a drink...
OMG WTF? Is Xmas here and nobody told me? We gift wrapped another game... typical. On a brighter note, over here in Scotland, SKY TV have decide to show us the Lambeau clash with the Dolfarts LIVE... Woohoo.
Please, someone wake me up from this nightmare that was supposed to be a GBP Superbowl-run season. *sigh*
I guess we now Know that b.f. is comfortable out of his wranglers too!
Please get rid of MM & TT!! I can't take it anymore...
arrrrrrrrrrrrgh. So angry now. MM and TT better get a hold of this team and get their collective shit together. Oh, and TT, just so you know. You are on the clock. If this team does not recover and loses two to the ugly purple dress, you better get your ass out of town. You are mostly to blame. Get a running back that can take the pressure off A Rodg, GET THAT DOG JUSTIN HARRELL OUT OF GREEN BAY, and make some FA moves you dick. Your kicker AND your punter suck. I am still angry about you running Jon Ryan, just because. This team is too talented to lose like this. Get it done or it will cost you your job.
I am so angry right now. How does a team like Washington even stay with the Pack. It should have been no contest. I mean really, look at what the purple idiots are willing to do to win. Look at it. We see no urgency in ANYTHING you do. Well, except hoard draft picks. Lynch for a 4th rounder? Moss for a third? That is nothing. Pull the f@#king trigger already.
I hate Ted.

Okay, perhaps I’m posting too soon after a loss that we should have captured a victory (My Saint Paulie Girl beer buzz is still with me), but Coach McMeathead should be FIRED! Granted we are only in week 5 but his play calling has cost us today’s game.
This P.O.S. ought to hand over the play calling to the (Oh I don’t know), the Offensive Coordinator so he has time to coach and get involved with personnel and officials who call BOGUS calls against our ball club.
Going for 4th and Goal instead of kicking a Crosby chip-shot cost us the game. Granted, the injuries that are piling up on both sides of the ball are not helping, but this is NO excuse for incompetence!!!
This CLOWN should hand over the play book and his whistle to Thompson.
This would be the best thing for everyone, our team and loyal fans!!!
PACKER PAUL - Minneapolis, MN.
UUUUUUGGGGGHHHHH! C'mon allready....
Watching today's game hurt....how many penalties did we have? And to watch that field goal kick 'thunk' the upright....ouch!
We sure do kick ass in between the 20's
Chris from FL
Why is the press so high on this team? - We have had injuries but this team is giving away games
Joe from Ohio
Damn that was ugly. For the 4th game this year, we let the other team stay in the game when they didn't deserve it, and the Deadskins are lucky enough to eek out a victory...just like duh Bears. Oh well, chin up, and let's eat some sushi!
