I never said the D doesn’t contribute to a loss. However in 2015 postseason in particular, our Defense allowed 18 and 20 points in regulation play respectively. Imo the Packers Offense should be able to score at least 21 points in consecutive games. That last game should’ve never gotten to OT to begin with. The mere fact it took 2 Hail Marys to score 20 points in regulation speaks very loudly. That means we scored 13 points until the very last second. We pay Aaron Rodgers to put teams away come Postseason, if he can’t score 21 in regulation then there’s a problem.
2015 Playoffs were clearly a fault of a sputtering Offense.
4 possessions;6 Points
TD (Double Desperation Hail Mary)
2 points per Offensive possession isn’t going to take you very far unless you are the 1985 Bears Defense. You’ve got to Win on your serve (Offense) if your return game is solid.
Well, the offense scored 35 points against Washington in the Wild Card round, therefore they played well enough in that game. Once again, against Arizona here's the list of targets for that game:
Jared Abbrederis 12
Jeff Janis 11
Richard Rodgers 8
James Starks 4
James Jones 2
Eddie Lacy 2
John Kuhn 2
Randall Cobb 1
That isn't a group you should expect to get great production from. With that being said I agree the offense deserves most of the blame for that loss. But the defense didn't get the job done in overtime and therefore is partly responsible for the team losing the game as well.
Every team has injuries on Offense by the time of January ball
I agree that injuries are part of the game but I don't remember any team that was successful in the playoffs featuring such a sad group of pass catchers.
