Rodgers probably wasn't expecting to get in today and he had to start off in a huge hole against a hungry defense. When he knew he was going to play in the preseason he did fairly well. If the Packers draft another QB in the 1st round I might quit as a Packer fan. Plus the Packers won't get that high of a draft pick to get Troy Smith or Quinn.



Even though Rodgers wasn't expecting to get in during the game, he should be prepared as if he was. That is what he is paid to do and obviously he didn't do his job this week. (This post has nothing to do with Favre's performance, that is a whole nother issue!)

there is only so much a guy can do with no reps with the first squad, against one of the best D's, with no running game.
why should he be held to a higher standard than Favre? when Favre had a week to prepare

Again, I am not commenting on Favre! Why do people assume that if you criticize Rodgers, that you are praising/defending Favre?

Did Rodgers have less than a week to prepare? Was he at home sick with the flu or out taking his dog for a walk while the rest of the team practiced?

I hold Rodgers to his own standards, and in the NFL your chances to prove yourself are limited. Aaron Rodgers failed to impress me with his play this time and depending on if their will be a next time, I am having a hard time beleiving that "he's the man" for the Packers future.

Rodgers is out for the year with a broken foot. Perhaps he played poorly because
1) The Patriots are pretty good
2) He was playing hurt.

And if the Packers even think about taking Brady Quinn, I will begin to cheer for the Bears. He will be an average pro at best. He hasn't played anyone and hasn't looked that great. People are buying into the hype that isn't deserved.

I agree with you Shefpan that its not that we have crappy players, they just keep blowing their coverages.

I think it's a combination of personnel and coaching that has led to the Packers defensive struggles. There is still plenty of room for improvement as far as talent goes...

Packers will not have a top 5 pick. There are 8 teams with a worse record from them and another 5 teams with the same record as them. They still have to play the Niners, Jets, Seattle, Detriot and the Vikings which are not that great of teams.

The secondary knew how to tackle and play defense last year. The secondary's main problem revolves around the coaching staff not the players. Look at what the Pats did to the Pack...who is in their defensive secondary? WITH THE PACKERS D, ITS COACHING!!!


You guys all need to settle down. I'm betting none of you are getting any calls from the Packer front office with offers to become assistant coaches anytime soon. The Packers are a very young team sprinkled with veterans who can't cut it any more (e.g., Al Harris). They will do fine in a few years IF they are allowed to mature. As for the coaching strategies, if these guys are truly professional players they can pick up on any scheme if given some time. If they are idiots then they will be out on their ear anyway. Everyone forgets that the pass defense looked good last year because no team had to pass on the Packers due to their woeful run defense.

Did they reel in the offense just to speed up the clock by keeping the ball on the ground? Or were they trying not to expose Rodgers on a day when the whole team was getting overwhelmed? It was hard to see some of what he could do when we had possessions where we called run plays and then threw on third and long.

I didn't really look at postgame interviews or anything. (Had had enough thinking about that game for the day.) I'm assuming it was asked at some point.


I think McCarthy had given up at that point. Did I hear correctly that he was crying at the end of the game?

Charles Woodson wasn't coached in GB until this year and he was a pro-bowl caliber player. i don't know what happened because in the last few weeks, he hasn't done anything mention worthy.losing coverages and stuff. is it just the defenesive scheme that makes the DBs lose there coverage or what?

i totally agree with sabres06 on the fact that the packers need to draft someone that knows how to play defense. Hawk was an awesome draft pick last year but they need more. no one in the pass D knows how to tackle.
