The Case Against the Green Bay Packers: Volume I (Andrew)

| August 4th, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-08-01 at 12.55.59 PM

The following is the third in a four-part series breaking down why the other teams in the NFC North won’t be contenders this season. (The Packers get two parts.)


If the Packers are blaming all of their struggles in 2015 on Jordy Nelson’s injured knee, they’re going to be in for a long 2016.

Something was broken with the Packers. Specifically, something was broken with Aaron Rodgers. If the argument is that it was entirely because Nelson was out, the only conclusion is that Rodgers is horrifically overrated. I don’t think he’s horrifically overrated, but I think there’s more to what ailed the team last year.

The Packers are built on three pillars:

  • GM
  • Coach
  • Quarterback

But the quarterback doesn’t like the coach. The coach has publicly criticized the GM. And the GM looks like a bowl of oatmeal. Oh, and has anybody talked about who the quarterback’s own family doesn’t like him?

All of that drama could be why the on-field product is broken. Yes they missed Nelson last year, but Nelson’s absence alone shouldn’t have caused an elite offense to become a mediocre one. If it did, we should be talking about Nelson being the star of the offense, not Rodgers.

The supporting cast matters. And in 2015, Green Bay’s was still pretty good. Their offensive line was good for most of the season barring a couple late games in which they were down a couple starters. Eddie Lacy may have been fat, but they still had one of the 15 best rushing offenses in the league. Their failures on offense boiled down to their quarterback and their receivers.

What used to be a simple game of pitch-and-catch looked like dodgeball.

Rodgers just looked out of sync. He’s the all-time leader in career passer rating, but was 15th last year, about 12 points below his career average. The Packers were 25th in passing yardage and Rodgers was 30th in yards per attempt. That just doesn’t happen to great quarterbacks in their prime, regardless of their supporting cast.

The Packers need to fix their offense because their defense has a fatal flaw that comes back to kill them year after year: inability to stop the run. The Packers haven’t had a really good run defense since 2011. Last year, they were 21st in yardage and 29th in yards per attempt. They added a couple of rookies, but banking on them to fix a broken run defense doesn’t seem wise.

They can get after the quarterback, so Green Bay’s defense is usually better than it gets credit for, but they can’t carry them. They need Rodgers to do that.

Maybe it was just a bad year and he rounds back into shape this year. Maybe their problems can be easily fixed. But maybe this is the beginning of the end for them as the NFC North’s dominant team.

    so, nothing about their precarious situation at D line right now? Missing a starter to suspension for the first 4 games? PED investigations/allegations? Losing big name guys to free agency? Losing a huge mainstay at CB and replacing him with a rookie? Jake fucking Ryan at starting ILB?

  • You’re about to get Jericho’d

    I don’t know what gives me greater joy, the thought of the impending regression of the Packers or the packer fans in quiet disbelief that the temporary reign is over. It’s easy to be the best in a division full of teams that had a tough stretch. Now that the scales are evening out because of real NFL fucking strategies and personnel moves by both the Bears and Vikings the results will be markedly different…..and it’s going to be fucking entertaining as “all git out” as they say up in northern Wisconsin where copious amounts of leg hair and facial hair on a woman is accepted and almost encouraged.

      I’ve never replied to my own post, but double fuck the packers. I remember losing my shit on this board a few times after losing to the Packers. (drunk, pissed off, looking for a fight). Hated that I did that. I blame the Packers. Fuck them in their fucking faces

      • 505Bears

        Don’t apologize Big Mike. I’ve done the same myself and plan on doing it a few times this year. That’s part of what this blog is about!!

          • CanadaBear

            Well, since I haven’t had a drink in 22+ years I can proudly say I haven’t. Of course, since I’m a chronic it’s pretty hard to get up on that moral high horse!

          • Yes, part of the AA step 9 for millennials will now include going to blogs, fb, instagram and twitter and apologizing to everyone their drunk versions have abused. Just be glad u didn’t go through that Canada!

          • CanadaBear

            I was always pretty good about apologizing right away. If I had any memory of it. Never did the AA thing. I was so disgusted with my drinking by the end getting tossed in jail (for the second time) was the kick in the pants I needed

        But now you will always have Thanksgiving 2015, where a rag tag crew of practice squad heroes and a can do attitude put up the best win of this young millennium over the Packers.

        • Big Mike

          After that win.. damn I was happy. It showed the promise of this staff and the seeds of future glory. Then Robbie Gould..

    • SC Dave

      I’m surprised Benjamin complained so much about pain. Granted, the flexibility stuff does hurt (I also did a patellar tendon ACL reconstruction, though with a broken tibial process in lieu of serious meniscus damage), but given the line of work these guys are in, you’d think pain a familiar thing.

      On White, I have no comment as I’ve never had anything like that.

      • CanadaBear

        I’m getting my left knee replaced in 2.5 weeks. I probably shouldn’t dis anyone about pain tolerance. Bad juju and all that!

      • MB30SD

        I did a double compound Tib/FIb on the field my redshirt year. I played spring ball but the pain of breaking down all the scare tissue was excruciating and made running without a limp almost impossible.

  • CanadaBear

    They were really out of sync last year. I’m not smart enough to know if this is the beginning of the end for them or just a bump in the road. Their D can run hot and cold. Sometimes in the same game. With a little more scrutiny about steroids it will be interesting to see how Peppers and Matthews play this year.

    Erin is such a bitch and a front runner it’s unreal. When he’s confident and on top of his game (read almost every Bears/Fudge matchup until last year) he plays out of his mind. Last year was the first time I can remember the D actually rattled him. Thanks Fangio! With a tip of the lid to Tracy Porter!

    • willbest

      Isn’t Fangio something like 5-1 against Aaron Rodgers?

      • Yeah. Something like that going back to SF. I’ve seen those games. In some strange way reminds me of how Lovie played Erin. The games were always tight.

        And as Irish always likes pointing out, with no blitzes. Just 4 pass rushing (much like with Lovie).

        Seems vanilla but obviously it works on Vadgers.

        And when the play breaks down having an extra guy spying him reduces the damage.

        Also, Vadgers didn’t have Jordy to hit when the play broke down. That’s usually when he created his most damage downfield. The other WRs just weren’t on the same wavelength as Vadgers.

        We’ll see if that’s a trend of just a Jordy effect.

        • CanadaBear

          AND Nelson is still not healthy. If he loses a step or two he will not be the panacea to all of Erin’s issues.

    For all you Rasslin’ fans this will make you smile.

      I am shocked that the MSM is going to spend the next 2 news cycles talking about something a Trump did 20 years ago, that may or may not have been a paper filing error and was obviously fixed 20 years ago.

      Lets talk about what the other potential FLOTUS was doing back then. Oh right, he was using his position of power to get blow jobs from interns in the Oval office, lying under oath and batting away rape allegations.

      Which of these two things is likely to repeat itself?

      • MB30SD

        who gives a wholly fucking fuck about a blowjob that that fat little cow very willingly provided to the most powerful man in the world will. Honestly who fucking cares dude?!

        what always shocks me about that argument is that I never hear the disbelief about how bush/cheney/rumsy got tens of thousands of our young people killed so that cheney’s company could exorbitantly overcharge our gov fees for servicing the effort and that the bush’s could continue sucking the saudi’s oil dick in a war that was totally fabricated… and how those three (and more) aren’t in jail or hung. Stunning man, fucking stunning.

        Worried about a fucking blowjob. jesus fucking christ man

        • willbest

          I am sorry, what does any of that have to do with anybody in the Trump family? We are comparing the two future FLOTUS. And don’t forget the rape allegations.

          • MB30SD

            And I was comparing regimes, who gives a rat’s ass about Flotuses yo. Like seriously, in the grand scheme of things, why aren’t you outraged about the Iraq war still and how and why it went down? I just don’t get it maings. And yes, at some level I am… I believe in common sense and logic above all… which was worse? Simple equation. Why aren’t you brining up all our dead soldiers instead? Logic above politics G $

            That said, those naked girl on girl pics were pretty spectacular and if we were voting based on Flotus tits, I would 100% vote trump.

            And yes, I refuse to vote for a man that is willing to try and destroy someone’s life because he says he has small hands. Scary to put that small a man in office.

          • willbest

            You still haven’t explained to me why, with all your hatred of Bush, you aren’t sucking Trump’s cock. Hillary didn’t get rid of Bush. Trump did. Its going to be 20 years before they get George P Bush groomed for the office.

          • MB30SD

            I guess I’m just a big fan of the venerable blow job will.

          • SC Dave

            Certainly, were it a Republican on the receiving end, the endless media diatribe would be ‘ sexual predator’.

            And you know that is true.

          • MB30SD

            nope. I don;t give a fuck about that stuff maings. Blow jobs are a victimless crime. Starting a war to fill the coffers of you and your cronies on the backs of our young soldiers… now THAT is something worth shouting about… and jailings and/or executions.

          • willbest

            I still don’t know what that has to do with this election though other than Bush family donors are lining up behind Hillary.

          • The Bush’s themselves seem like more moderate Republicans. GW before 9/11 was pretty center. That’s why he got elected. After 9/11 Cheney and the oil hawks used him like a puppet, but the Bush’s themselves strike me as more center-right which is not that far from center-left that Hillary occupies.

          • SC Dave

            That last paragraph indicates to me you should totally ignore politics, as you are too sentimental for it.

          • MB30SD

            sure, whatever. I feel like I should be sentimental about thousands of deaths of our kids for what reason?

            That’s a fill in the blank please. Why did the iraq war happen again? Remind me of the good reason por favor?

        • willbest

          Incidentally, its comments like this leaving me to believe you are an ideologue.

          Because, Trump literally has nothing to do with the GOP establishment, isn’t liked by them, and is trying to be destroyed by them. He single handedly ended the Bush dynasty’s chances at the White House for at least a generation with two words “low energy”. His domestic policy is left-leaning, and his foreign policy is American centric. And yet you find him objectionable because he isn’t a “nice” person, and he is too “crazy”.

  • “He’s the all-time leader in career passer rating, but was 15th last year, about 12 points below his career average.”

    That’s even more striking because the NFL average as a whole was up a good 3-4 points last year.

  • That said, I’m still picking GB to win the division. They had a shit year last year and still won 10 games and almost made the NFCCG.

  • You’re about to get Jericho’d

    Bears sign Fullback Darrell Young..waive some white guy:
    http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5678/darrel-young
    I’m inclined to just have Unrein play fullback at 6’4 305. I’m pretty sure that’s bigger than 5’11 250.

    • willbest

      I imagine its just for camp bodies to have somebody to spell Unrein while he plays d-line or taking first team reps at FB

    • GP portrayed by Eric Roberts

      Unrein vs. Lesnar, Cage Match. Who wins?

      • You’re about to get Jericho’d

        tough call. Lesnar fucking sucks at submissions but against a novice fighter anyone can pull it off.
        Unrein is a beast and has a size advantage. It would not be pretty. Someone would probably throw a head butt and things would get messy.

        • MB30SD

          lesnar would fucking decapitate him. Size doesn’t mean shit in a fight. it’s all about aggression and experience. Urine would get killed.

          • CanadaBear

            Size doesn’t mean shit in a fight That’s true up to a point. My best friend for years was a badass power lifter and a bar brawler when he was younger (he’s since passed). He was 6’5″ and 250-300 depending on where he was on his “cycle”. He was literally twice my size. I could have hit him with everything I had and the chances of me dropping him was nil (not that I ever would have done that). That’s why I get so pissed about Tom Cruise being a badass. Yeah, sure, a 135 lb badass.

          • MB30SD
          • In my fighting experience, need a few things.

            1. A chin. Don’t have chin, don’t matter if u look like Conan the Barbarian, you’re going down like Glass Joe.

            2. A punch. Like the boxing maxim goes, “power is god given” some got it, some don’t.

            3. Experience/Stamina/Technique. These come into play the longer the fight goes, but fights usually don’t really last that long. It aint like the movies where there’s 15 min sequences.

            When you get in a fight, your adrenline kicks into overdrive and you burn a lot of energy which sucks your stamina. Anyone who has wrestled on the ground for 2 mins knows this. Experience helps cuz you don’t go crazy, don’t panic, and as such, preserve stamina which in turn can funnel into technique. Technique IMO is using energy/movement efficiently.

            4. Aggression. Like power, some are berzerkers, some aren’t’. If someone is trying to rape your sis, you might go a lil crazier then the attacker which might help (unless that dude is like a ninja or something).

          that’s exactly what I was going to say. fuck that

      • You’re about to get Jericho’d

        Kuhn is a bad dude. I would love to have him as a Bear. He will be resigned by the Packers before the season starts. He’s so damn effective. We have our own monster FB in Unrein …. but why use him when we can run Zach Miller on an inside shovel pass? I know they are playing out scenarios in practice but if you don’t have Monster Package in there every time any where inside the 7 on 1st down you’re just being dumb. How can Langford or Carey behind Long, Massie and Unrein be stopped? And if they triple stack the box you run the RB on a flare pattern and let him go one on one with a DB to score a TD.

        I’m still baffled about the hate mail I received for calling a duck a duck.

        • SC Dave

          Because you’re an asshole about it, and attribute it to something you know nothing about.

          You could just say “injury prone” and then no one would object. Well, at least I wouldn’t.

          He’ll, even ‘brittle’ would get a pass from me. But ‘pussy’ is pejorative (save that shit for Vadgers or Lezbo man), unnecessary, and most of all, untrue.

          • what’s the fun in that!?

          • SC Dave

            I was going to add “unbloglike”… mea culpa.

          • MB30SD

            I use the pejorative as a way of fucking around dave.

            He is brittle. And brittle guys who’ve ALWAYS been pegged as fat and lazy when not pushed by someone like Bmarsh should just shut the fuck up and prove they’re worth the big contract on the field… not in the media. plain and simple.

          • SC Dave

            What has he said that raises your ire?

          • MB30SD

            it’s the entire attitude and what he hasn’t said. He hasn’t been a dez or anything… but expecting a big contract when he limped through 9 games last year, in a contract year rubs me the wrong way dave.

            If he’d have said, I’ll show them this year and then there won’t be any question that I deserve #1 money and a fatass long-term contract, I’d have been like… boo yah young man. Prove that shit.

            Again, I just don’t like the way he’s handled it and now he’s injured again. Come on maings, you haven’t proven you deserve anything but exactly what you got…. the tag… from my POV.

          • Alshon isn’t an alpha like that. He’s not a leader.

            He’s kinda the offensive version of Julius Peppers

            (except Peppers wasn’t inj prone and more athletic).

            A passive dude with talent but with rumors of laziness. Usually guys like that need an alpha on their ass like Bmarsh or Marinelli for Pep (who would point out ‘loafs’).

            That’s why many don’t want to pay him Julio Jones $ (on top of the injuries)

    • Didn’t White have a “mild leg issue” last year?

  • Bender McLugh

    Noiice. Cutler response when asked about Bennett & B Marsh comments:

    “I could say something clever and smart, but I’ll just pass.”

  • SC Dave
    • Sactowns#1

      “Regulatory burdens” lol Where do they find these rubes? I’m guessing a suburban mall with an unspoken whites only policy. lol

      • Cormonster

        It’s a parody video.

  • The Packers were 25th in passing yardage and Rodgers was 30th in yards
    per attempt. That just doesn’t happen to great quarterbacks in their
    prime, regardless of their supporting cast. –

    Yes, I don’t recall Brady, Brees or even guys like Warner in their primes regresses that much from one year to the next (and Brady and Brees for the most part played with scrub WRs).

    But didn’t the Pack change who called the plays or something? Might have something to do with continuity, and if that is the culprit (along with Jordy sidelined) then it can make u understand Cutty’s plight a bit more who had like 7 different OCs.

    • Warner is a bad example. He was really good for 3 years in STL from his age 28-30 seasons, then mediocre for 5 years before a late-career resurgence in Arizona.

      • That’s true. I guess I was thinking of Warner’s prime with Martz until he was 30ish.

        Isn’t a player’s prime sub 30? Dunno. I guess it’s different for QBs and kickers, but still, I figure a QB is a bit more mobile, athletic maybe the synapses firing faster at a younger age.

        But the counter is less knowledge and experience.

        • I tend to think of a QB’s prime as typically from 28-35 or so. Takes a few years to get the mental level where it needs to be, then physically can go for quite a while, as long as they don’t have any debilitating injuries. Hell, Brady is 39 and can be considered still in his prime.

          • willbest

            By 35+ they have pretty much seen it all, so even if they can’t move the way Rodgers does, they don’t really need to. There is a bit less zip on their ball though.

            Countered by being a bit more knowledgeable about where to throw it.

          • yeah, that will vary from person to person, but that seems to me to be about when they start slipping a bit.

          • Hmmm. Brady in his prime at 39? Not sure. Is he better now then he was say perfect season *.

            It would be an interesting project to see – when are Great QBs in their primes. I assume it would differ though. Some guys like Favre and Warner really didn’t get their shit together till later. Other guys like Young didn’t get a shot till later.

            While Peyton, Marino, Elway were studs since college.

            Or , we can just look up Madden ratings!

      Yes. If I recall correctly, Tom Clements was doing the play-calling to start last season but McCarthy eventually resumed that chore.

      “Kevin White
      White never had an opportunity to hit the dreaded β€œrookie wall” but he seemed to be hitting something similar at this practice. His effort was lacking the whole time, and his wide receivers coach worked him very hard on the sidelines, calling him β€œlazy.” At one point, offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains yelled across the field to yank White from the two-minute drill because he wasn’t sprinting or giving full effort.”

        Doesn’t matter how much time you spend on the bike, you aren’t prepared for camp.

        • SC Dave

          So, it’s okay for White, but not Alshon. Just checking.

          • White is essentially a rook who hasn’t played meaningful football in o ver a year.
            If he injures something again , he’ll get the marshmallow treatment too.
            But for now a hammied Alshon will get it until he actually lasts this season

          • SC Dave

            He has already lasted two. But I know facts don’t matter to some. Of course, you did say ‘this’, but still.

            When Alshon makes first team All Pro, I’m sure you will be happy to apologize. Jeffrey is 10 times more likely than say, Jay Cutler, to do so.

            Most likely on the roster, after Hicks or maybe Long.

          • And how many of those games was he limping around, Dave?

            He’s dangerous when he’s in, but much like Arian Foster, he simply has a long history of injuries. But unlike Foster, he’s no vegan and comes with some accusations that he loafs (again, why he dropped in the draft, so this isn’t just subjective Bears goggles. 31 other teams passed him in the draft for that very reason).

          • MB30SD

            Sigh.

          • Johnnywad

            And Todd Collins. Remember when Cutty got sacked nine times in the first half at the Giants in 2010? Collins had to come in. He looked like he’d seen a ghost. They kept showing his wife in the stands with her hands over her face like he was heading off to combat.

          • MB30SD

            Bingo!

          • willbest

            I have been a pretty decent Jeffery defender. He always has hammy issues though, and supposedly he stayed away from the Bears S&C coach because he felt he was responsible for his soft tissue stuff last year. That is fair enough, but he went his own way and he will be judged for it.

            Camp soreness is to be expected but he better be ready to roll week 1.

          • Huge Bear’s Penis

            pretty sure he stayed away from the Bears facilities last off season too, again training on his own at Marshalls training center in Florida.

          • SC Dave

            Agree entirely, will

      • GP portrayed by Eric Roberts

        Kyle Fuller
        Fuller stood out for flashes of both good and bad. He was burned a few times by Alshon Jeffery in man coverage, as he just seems to be slow at processing what the receiver is doing and struggling to mirror. In zone coverage, particularly in Cover-3, he was lights-out, contesting multiple passes and never getting out of position.

        Wow. What a stunner. Fuller is a zone corner drafted for a c2-high scheme. Now he’s in a 3-4 and being asked to do something he cannot: be a bump and run corner.

        Like we didn’t know that.

        Just fucking make him the nickel already. We know how this ends.

        • Make him a FS. i call him neckbrace cuz he can’t mirror and turns gis head like that neckbraced dude in police academy. Start making him a fs now so he can play zone and not have to trail or turn as much
          He’ll complement Amos well

          • MB30SD

            sigh. here’s an idea. Cut his fucking ass and bring in a corner built for our system.

          • There’s a lot of CBs who make decent FS. Why waste a chance, not to mention throw away first rd talent (and waste even more draft picks on finding a FS) without trying?

            The skill set for a cover 2 CB and a FS are a lot a like. Tackling. Zone. Size.

            Fuller isn’t some 5’8 corner like Jennings, and it’s not as if he has an inj history like Peanut.

            If Fuller fails at CB, they’ll def try him at FS. I say we just start that process already.

            Sometimes regimes are stubborn with switching guys. They didn’t put Long at RT till the season almost started. Shea should’ve been moved to LB since day one. Peanut never got a crack at FS, which I think he would’ve excelled at (discounting injuries).

            Hopefully POX begin moving Fuller to FS sooner rather than later.

            If he sucks at both, then move on.

          • MB30SD

            sure, and waste some other dude’s reps who has played FS his whole career. sigh

        • willbest

          Showcase him in zone, and see if you can get a 4th rounder for him.

          • Maybe Panthers? Chico plays a lot of cover 3-2 and just lost Josh Norman.

            It would be a lower 4rth, but fuck it. If he keeps getting burned…

            I think the major problem with Fuller is that he’s really inconsistent. If Fangio can salvage him, maybe no one can.

    Not much comment on Foles to KC. Better, or worse, than Hoyer to us? Foles is getting $1.75M this season.

    • BearDown100393

      #6 got this for the season.

      • SC Dave

        Barring injury, you mean.

    • willbest

      I would rather have Foles than Hoyer. He might not be consistent but you know somewhere in there is a pro bowl performance.

    • The issue with having quality backup QB is that often they’re just on 1 year contracts cuz they’re still trying to start somewhere.

      I think both have the possibility to leave, then we’ll have to start the whole process again.

      Maybe that’s why we’re keeping Fales around.

      I would prefer Hoyer for now cuz Foles excelled but in a specific system that we don’t run.

      • SC Dave

        Ideally, Fales becomes better than Cutler. DESPITE Jay becoming his best ever.

        • I reallllly hope we see a lot of Fales in PS. But knowing POXs secretive M.O. they’ll likely try to hide him from other gruby fingered teams.

          • Johnnywad

            Why the fuck are we trying to hide this little bastard? He blows. If that kid could play a lick, he would have done something by now. Anything. Holy balls with the David Fales bidness. Fuck’em. He couldn’t even beat out Jimmy Clausen. That means he sucks really bad.

          • MB30SD

            Exactly hbp… where’s irish when I need him

          • I don’t see why the Bears DON’T play him, even in PS.

            They’re not keeping him around to help Cutty.

            This leads me to believe they’re secretly impressed with him and are trying to develop him.

            When the Pats tried to snatch Fales, Bears promoted him and threw him some cash.

            Again, teams don’t usually do that unless they like a prospect. I just wanna see wtf is impressing them, cuz if he does suck donkey balls, there’s plenty of other young QBs out there that CAN be developed (like Fales possibly b4 he signed).

      • Rivers played with a torn ACL in the playoffs.

        Cutler rode a stationary bike.

        (Waffle in 3…2…1…)

        • Huge Bear’s Penis

          don’t forget that when Rivers tore his ACL he left the game not to return despite being behind in the game, and Volek lead the Chargers to victory. He only played in the next playoff game against the Pats after having his knee scoped. He also arguably had his worst game of the year, 0 TDs 2 INTs.
