The Green Bay Packers had their lowest offensive output in seven years
and the defense struggled again despite causing four turnovers as the
Lions embarrassed the pack on Thursday 40-10. As usual, after a Packer
loss the radio waves, twitterverse and blogosphere was full of anger and
vitriol. Fire _____ (fill in the blank) was a regular. refrain. It's
easy to see that the malaise of the Packers is much more than the
unavailability of Aaron Rodgers. The one week love affair with Matt
Flynn did sour of course as he played like many of us expected he would
when the team signed him. I grant you he was running for his life for
much of the game as the offensive line showed how damaged they are.
...And the defense...what can we say about the defense...it was clear to
see that the defense is not only flawed in scheme and execution...its
flawed in talent level. This isnt a one day oddity. The Lions are a much
better team right now in almost all phases of the game...and Aaron
Rodgers coming back isnt going to change that. So...who pays the price?
Ted Thompson built the roster...Mike McCarthy calls the offensive plays
and puts the starting lineup together...Dom Capers alledgely makes the
defensive game plan and in-game adjustments. The Packer brass like
Thompson and they probably won't make McCarthy pay for this with his job
after the sustained level of success the team has had over the last
seven years. Capers will probably be the one who gets canned...along
with some of the conditoning coaches who will pay the price for all of
the hamstring and groin injuries that have ruined this season. You cant
fire all the players (although there are very few on this roster that
have earned their keep this year) so expect some cosmetic changes after
this season ends with the hope that health and Aaron Rodgers will get
the team back to respectibility.
