Poor play-call­ing dooms Pack­ers

Packer Plus - - News -

How bril­liant are Ted Thomp­son and the rest of the brass of the Green Bay Pack­ers? We keep three rookie run­ning backs who I guess can also play of­fen­sive and de­fen­sive line while let­ting go Ricky Jean Fran­cois and Taysom Hill.

The Pack­ers sure could have used Ricky Jean Fran­cois against the Fal­cons (no depth on the de­fen­sive line).

My guess is Hill is as fast or faster than all three of the rookie run­ning backs (but, who needs a 4.4 ex­cit­ing quar­ter­back? Not the Pack.). Wow! Since we do not pos­sess the per­son­nel to run Mike McCarthy’s plays what can the Pack do? The West Coast of­fense is pred­i­cated on the short pass­ing game to take the place of a poor run­ning game. McCarthy re­fuses to give his team a chance to win by call­ing these types of plays and sub­sti­tutes it with his in­ept play-call­ing.

How dif­fi­cult is it to “dink and dunk” with one of the top quar­ter­backs in the league? For Mike McCarthy it is im­pos­si­ble. Any ad­just­ments he makes is too lit­tle too late. What amazes me even more is the Pack­ers ap­par­ently have no one who can make these sim­ple play calls.

Sec­ond half be­gins with Rodgers try­ing to throw a side­ways pass re­turned for a touch­down by the Fal­cons. This is pa­thetic.

Should we keep things the way they are? Will we go on a run and make the play­offs like last sea­son? Will our il­lus­tri­ous coach and GM can keep their beloved jobs? Will we will lose the play­off game and lick our wounds only to come back with the same sce­nario next year?
