What the hell was that?
That is the most common question being asked by Packers fans after the 29-10 ass beating handed to them by the Denver Broncos.
The score doesn’t indicate just how piss poor the Packers played. It was an all around embarrassing performance by the supposed best team in the NFC.
When Mike McCarthy comes out during his post game press conference and says “I haven’t had my ass kicked like that in a long time” it should be an indication to everyone just how bad it was.
I’ve had a full day to process the shit storm that was the Packers’ performance last night, and have come away with more than a few thoughts about the game. Questions, comments, observations, and just straight up venting.
Without further delay, here we go:
- I cannot process how Aaron Rodgers, the 2 time league MVP and arguably best player in the league, managed a stat line of 14-22 for 77 yards. A whopping 3.5 average. That yardage line is just ridiculous-77 yards.
- When the passing offense was struggling, why would the Packers not try some quick, short passes? Something. Anything to get the offense going a little bit and develop some rhythm. Nope. Stuck with the pistol or shotgun, spread formations, and looking downfield.
- Sometimes, I really wish Rodgers would be more like his predecessor and just sling the ball down the field. Look to make the big play, instead of trying to make the perfect play.
