Packers Therapy #262: Packers Play Like They’re A Mile High

Packers Therapy Podcast

In a word, it was awful. And we don’t just mean Chris and Dave’s podcast. No, we’re talking about the Packers flaccid performance against Denver, ruining Green Bay’s perfect record and sending Packers Nation into hand-wring angst. Chris and Dave have no answers, but are willing to spin wild tales of speculation as to how a team that was heretofore solid became one that stumbled so badly as to cast doubt on the rest of the season.


Posting its first show in 2005, Packers Therapy is the longest-running Packers podcast on the Internet. Hosts Chris and Dave began the show as a way of capturing the spirited chats the two co-workers had about the team around the office. The two have no pretense about being experts: they are just two opinionated shareholders who love the team, follow it closely, but don’t always see the Packers fortunes eye to eye.

The guys encourage comments and questions via their Twitter feed @PackersTherapy and read and respond to as many as they can during each show. Or you can sent them an email to packerstherapy at

  1. I think it’s really important to establish the running game this week and every week moving forward. This will slow down the pass rush and help Rodgers out before it’s to late.He’s really taking a beating and so far we’ve been lucky not to lose him. Jordy was the go to guy when Arod was in trouble and he is sorely missed. Something seems wrong with the playcalling and Clements must address it. The next four games,three divisional in a row after Carolina will set us apart in the NFC North or change the landscape.Minnesota is our only competition and they’re improving every week.

  2. This game was hardly on Aaron Rodgers. There was VERY few places to go with the ball. He missed some throws and some opportunities to make a play but his receivers gave him absolutely no help. No one was open over the course of the entire night and the way they were playing he was lucky to have completed 14 passes. Rodgers was very elusive in the pocket and if it weren’t for that the Broncos pass rush would have absolutely annihilated him. It also didn’t help that the running game was virtually non-existent. They had I think 4 runs of 10 yards or more and 2 of them were from Rodgers, while the other 2 were from Lacy on holes that were wide open and he was able to capitalize on. And let’s not forget the performance that we all want to forget, by Casey Hayward after Sam Shields was hurt. Hayward was abused early and often and he was mostly the one lining across from D. Thomas. Everyone was a step too slow in this game. Even Micah Hyde on the crossing routes by TE couldn’t keep up. I don’t know if the altitude was the effect, but the whole team just looked slow. It’s a real concern considering the teams and players that we have to face over the remainder of the season. I haven’t given up hope by any means, but the team as a whole, really needs to step up.
