taba - fuck them if they go woke.

Uh. You do realize they have a “George Floyd Legacy Scholorship” they now give out? Not sure what his “legacy” is, but whatever.

Jesus Christ. Wonder if they still think it was a good idea to get ride of their best receiver, all cornerbacks, and do nothing about the offensive line.

Cousins is terrified to throw to anyone except Thielen

Defense can’t get any pressure on Rodgers. Cousins under pressure constantly.

They’re lucky this game isn’t 40-10

Ya, no secondary. Our best plays in the secondary have been Valdez-Scantling (or whatever the fuck his name is) dropped passes.

Could be the worst defense in the league

There's no way they are winning a championship with this horrible defense.

I hate to give GB any props but they also look pretty darn good. Especially Rogers and D Adams.

They do but like the announcer said, Rodgers has been rushed 1 time all game. 1 fuckin time. Meaning every other play he’s been able to sit back there and look around with zero pressure. That’s insane. And our corners are absolutely awful.

And no matter how good they luck, a mediocre defense shouldn’t be giving up 45-50 points

Yeah I’m just trying to come up with some positives. 
 

Danielle Hunter is 1 guy, but that will help pressure up front tremendously when he comes back. 
 

im not near as down on the OLine as I am on our defensive backfield. Too much youth. Dantzler and Hill got beat all day.  At least the OLine is still run blocking well. We need to improve pass protection a bunch though. I really wish Cousins was more of a quick release guy. Our plays take too long to unfold when you can’t protect the QB.

Maybe if they worried about how to play football half as much as they worried about how to celebrate criminals then they wouldn't have sucked so fucking bad. Lolol.

The o line isn’t good, but they’re not god awful like the secondary.

Here’s the thing. Holton hill was a backup the last two years. There’s a reason for that. He’s not meant to be going up against the likes of Davante Adams, and it showed. There’s a reason Rodgers targeted Adams 17 times. Not sure why they thought getting rid of the entire cb roster was a good idea.

And again, cousins is scared to throw to anyone except Thielen today. Where was Rudolph? I though Irv was supposed to really break out. Did he even play today? I honestly don’t remember seeing him. Getting rid of your best receiver and expecting a rookie to immediately take over is not realistic. Bisi as the #2 guy? Ugh.

Last, why never throw the ball downfield? I’m watching all other teams do it. Like Brady just got a 40 yard pass interferenc call. Even if you don’t complete it, there’s a chance of a penalty. But if you never try, you’ll never get either.

I get it was only one game, but I don’t see any evidence that they can go anywhere this year.

They’re gonna pay cousins and cook a ton, but not get them any other help around them?

Not sure where they think they’re going with this team.

I Agree. Celebrating criminals instead of winning football games is VERY gay.

I think Irv caught 1 of 2 targets. There was one play where Kirk was hurried and sacked and Conklin was wide open. Just no protection for him to check down and make the attempt. 
 

I like Bisi but he’s not a #2 WR at this level. 
 

and you are right, we have no one in the defensive backfield that can hang with the elite WR in this league right now.

Yea, speaking as a packers fan.  Not to add more rain on the misery parade, but unless that secondary significantly improves into the season, I'm no longer concerned about the Vikings being a threat to win the division this year.

 

Adam's tied that CBs shoes, tucked his shirt in, gave him a lunchbox and a backpack...and then took him to school.  You arent going to beat Rodgers with a bad secondary and blitz packages.

3rd and 9- run with Mattison

3rd abd 19- run with Mattison.

Of course 2 punts

Just shows they have zero confidence in cousins, our line, and passing game. If it’s 3rd and 9 they give up and it’s time to punt, so bring in the second string running back to safely carry the ball

And D looks atrocious again
