Rants: 

1.  How does an NFL team justify/rationalize throwing the ball  4 plays in a row after gaining a 1st & goal at the one yard line ?  The answer to this question has to do with why I would much prefer to watch a college football game any day of the week as opposed to the game the NFL sells tickets to and calls it American football. 

 2. How many passes did Valdez-Scantling & Jimmy Graham drop ?  This is professional football, boys ... and the ball is thrown by the best QB's the game has to offer.  When the game is on the line, catch the fricking ball, especially if you are able to get both hands on it ... you catch footballs all week long in practice from the guy throwing the ball ... you should be used to how fast he can throw the ball.

3.  Why abandon the run 2 series in a row facing 1st & goals inside the 10-yd line  ?  On the game ending series, the Packers pick up  6 yards on 1st & 10 down to the 3 yd line ... was Mike McCarthy back in town calling the plays again tonight ?

4. This loss to the Eagles was a game the Packers had no business losing ... save for their own undoing !

The Packers have over-achieved so far, probably the third most talented team in the NFC North.  I'm mainly just disappointed in the inablity it to stop the run and the lack of ability to run the football.  Those two issues telll me that they're still a soft football team.   When you pass it four times in a row at the one yard line you deserve to get beat.

Aside from what has already been said, which I agree with, the KO coverage was horrendous and what was up with Crosby booting the ball out of bounds?  When you give away field position like that, it sure makes life miserable for the defense.

TOTALLY agree with everything said thus far.  How about the officiating too?  HOLY COW!

So the opening kickoff, the Eagle player hits our guy with the crown of the helmet.  No call!

Then our running back is being held by 2 Eagle defenders and was not going anywhere and then another defender decides to load up and crashes into Williams.  Next thing you know the cart is out on the field.

Then the best of the night was the pass interference call that was as plain as the nose on your face and was even red flagged and after the review they said there was no interference....  WOW!  The Packers were driving and now had to punt.

I'm not even going to talk about all of the holding that's going on.

The NFL officials sure embarrassed themselves last night.

We're only complaining about not running the ball there because passing didn't work. That's not T.J. Rubley back there.

When you have Aaron Rodgers you should be able to find the end zone in those situations even just relying on him. The search for a viable Bubba Franks goal-line TE weapon continues for its 10th season.

The OL simply wasn't improved enough this off-season and look at that, Bulaga is hurt again. That's on Gutekunst.

I don't have much of a problem with the rest of what is happening. This team is a work-in-progress (maybe third-best talent in the division, folks) and there's a lot of rot that needs to be undone.

Big week forthcoming for the coachig staff. Even if a loss I wanna see good adjustments and improvements.

Not me.  I was pissed the minute i saw them throwing the ball.  Things were Charmin soft under McCarthy, if you want to rid yourself from that label you don't pass the ball four times in that situation...Inexcusable.
