Tired of the cha­rade

Packer Plus - - News - Greg Molle Min­neapo­lis

Af­ter an­other de­plorable per­for­mance against the lowly Detroit Lions, should Packer Na­tion re­ally be sur­prised? Heck, Mike McCarthy didn’t look sur­prised… hardly both­ered ac­tu­ally. All Mike needs is that lam­i­nated play sheet that keeps him from the re­al­ity of what’s re­ally hap­pen­ing on the field.

Since 2010, Mike and the Packer front of­fice has been mas­ter­ful at al­low­ing the me­dia and the fans to be­lieve that we don’t re­ally need coach­ing that can de­velop a com­plete TEAM – es­pe­cially a de­fense, we have Aaron Rodgers! If only Aaron can stay healthy…. Af­ter 8 years does any of this look fa­mil­iar?

Fall­ing be­hind 24-0 af­ter yet an­other “slow start”

Burn­ing time­outs that we des­per­ately needed be­fore the half and the end of the game be­cause of “play con­fu­sion” 12 penal­ties A soft de­fense that doesn’t seem to want to play or care (Clay Matthews lead­ing his team­mates in laugh­ter on the bench when they are be­hind 17-0)

Lack of dis­ci­pline (see 12 penal­ties, de­fen­sive play­ers out of po­si­tion, and a costly taunt­ing penalty by a rookie when we are be­hind by 16 points)

Ter­ri­ble spe­cial teams play And of course, af­ter the game it’s golly shucks… if only that penalty didn’t hap­pen, if only that kick was made.

By the way, in case you have for­got­ten, the Green Bay of­fice and Coach Mike told us that we didn’t need to keep these guys: Jordy Nel­son, Casey Hay­ward, Micah Hyde and Jared Cook.

Or ac­quire any of these play­ers: Khalil Mack, Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman or Dez Bryant (heck we let Jordy (Nel­son) go…how does this make sense?).

It’s ironic (not), that (Casey) Hay­ward and (Micah) Hyde be­came “all-pro” AF­TER they left the Pack­ers. Ev­ery sin­gle year it’s Aaron Rodgers this, Aaron Rodgers that… blah, blah blah. Isn’t any­one else sick and tired of this cha­rade? Well guess what, that gig may be fi­nally up. Af­ter yes­ter­day, it’s ap­par­ent that Aaron Rodgers doesn’t walk on wa­ter.
