    Can we blaime the offense stuggles on the loss of Joe Philbin? Or the players themselves?

    I think it is because of a multiple of things. We vsed 3 good defenses in a row. Give them a credit. Another thing why our offense is sputtering is because we have relied on the deep ball. Safeties and corners are not biting on the play actions and double moves. Third thing is fundamentals. Rodgers has to be more accurate then he has been. Receivers need to catch the ball. Offensive Line has to Block better.

    My solution. Packers have to become balanced and they have to run more basic plays. Slants, Comeback routes etc... How they moved the ball in the second half is how we need to start out the Saints game. Once we establish the basic plays again we can get back to more of the complex stuff.

    Aaron has regressed. It was expected, just not this much.

    Saints aren't very good against the run. They need a big dose of Benson.

    If Philbin still was working with the offensive line, we miss him. The second half last night shows they have the ability to control the line of scrimmage, but they were simply awful in the first half. Seattle rushed 3 or 4 all first half and Rogers had a little time only because he can move around and he's still sacked 8 times. Nobody's open because they had 7 or 8 guys covering 5 receivers and a back. That means there's nobody to dump the ball off to, and nobody open downfield. If the line were doing its job, Rogers could stand back all day and eventually find someone open. If we made the defense rush 5 or 6 Rogers would kill it with his quick passes. Either the o-line gets serious about hitting people or the offense will continue to sputter.
