    Packer Fan Since:
    So I'm looking over the stats to try to figure out where GB is going wrong and I came to this conclusion:

    I just looked into the stats of GB this year

    PTS 23.8
    YDS 342.4 (12th)

    PASS YDS 235.4 (10th)

    RUSH YDS 107.0 (15th)

    our problem is not that we can't run/pass the ball, it's that we cant convert 3rd downs, and we keep shooting ourselves in the foot with penalties. Packers are designed to be a team that runs up the score in the first half, then plays keep away with the ball. Except we can't score, and we can't sustain drives.

    3rd down conversions:
    39% (not good)
    Penalty yardage:
    310 yards (among leagues worst)
    Time of Possession:
    GB 30:44 opponents 30:38 (basically equal)

    These are stats that GB usually dominates, but right now we look VERY average if not just outright bad.
