    To be kind, I’ll grant you the first two, even though Seattle is highly debatable.

    Please though. How did he play poorly against Atlanta? I’d love to hear it.

    He didn't play poorly in Seattle. he had one bad pass out to Cobb, that was it. The rest was great defense or stumbles by other offensive players. That other INT was a free play he just threw to the endzone but the officials never threw the flag. he and everyone else saw it, it was, except it wasn't. Oh well. But he played pretty well against that defense with a bum leg.

    You know exactly what it’s about. Don’t play.

    Atlanta wasn't as bad as the others, and he wasn't helped by the Ripkowski fumble. But he did throw a pick, and when you're unable to score until you're down 31-0 in the second half, you did not have a good game.

    When your defense gives up 31 points, and your kicker misses FGs, and your FB fumbles the ball, you're prone to take chances that you normally wouldn't. So Idk what kind of point you're trying to make but that wasn't on Rodgers.

    I want the Packers to sign a veteran wide receiver in free agency who could fill the #2 role on the depth chart as well but I'm just opposed to Cobb being the one.

    Once again, the draft class at receiver is considered to be extremely deep this year. With the team lacking talent at the position it shouldn't take long for Rodgers to target a talented rookie next season on a regular basis.

    While MVS has put up similar numbers to Adams in his first two seasons there's no reason to expect him to develop into an elite receiver as well as it seems he has regressed since early this season and definitely lacks the ability to run precise routes like Adams displayed early in his career.

    I don't think the Packers having Sanders would make any difference this week.

    There's no reason to believe that the Packers not having a decent #2 all season long was part of the plan. It was a mistake made by the front office and the coaching staff who believed the receiving corps to be more talented.

    They will get a chance to correct it next offseason.

    Once again, all six rookie receivers that caught passes for more than 600 yards this season were selected in the second round or later. It will definitely be possible for Gutekunst to draft an impact WR at 32.

    I'm pretty sure you understand that I wasn't meaning they thought having no quality #2's on the team was part of a plan and they tried for it. the plan was get Petting what he needs because he knows what he needs. Let MLF try and develop the guys he has, see what he has and determines what he needs and get it next year. With limits on what you can spend and who you can pick they did what they could.

    That int in the endzone was a free play, it was. They jumped offsides and he did what they always did, threw to the endzone. The officials blew it. I remember another one where Jordy stumbled out of his break and it went off his finger tips. That's what happens in a timing offense. Outside of a bad throw to Cobb for a pick, it wasn't a bad game. Heck he threw a ball for a first down to likely win the game and the TE had it punched out/dropped.

    Pages 168-166 are the primary pages where threads mostly go over that meltdown we had.

    My point is that the front office thought they have a decent #2 wide receiver on the roster but made a mistake evaluating the talent level at the position.

    I wouldn't know either because I wouldn't watch Skip Clueless even if that was the only show on the air. :tdown:

    Can we not talk about this game on the day of another NFC Championship game? I feel this gives bad Juju. If we have to talk about one, let's talk about the one we won.

    Did they? Or did they concede that someone has to develop because our resources need to be spent elsewhere in a draft weaker on WR and stronger in areas we needed?

    I think the guys and positions we addressed and brought in are the reason we’re here today. If they had kept Cobb and not gotten any one of those FAs or picked a potential WR instead of savage or Jenkins I don’t think we are where we are.
    Even Gary has played a small but important role.

    It would absolutely make a difference if Sanders was off the 49ers and playing for GB today. Not even a question in my mind.

    We’ve been dealt the cards we’ve been dealt, so the best we can do is play our hand perfectly. Hopefully our young WR group will step up and shine. Big game today, they’ve got to step up their game as does Rodgers.

    There's no doubt that overall Gutekunst has done a great job of improving the roster over last season. In my opinion there would have been resources available to upgrade the receiving corps as well though.

    I believe the front office expected at least one of the youngsters to make a significant jump in year two but unfortunately that didn't happen.

    I don't think so as Lazard has put up the same numbers as Sanders over the past four games.

    A pick six by Amos or Jaire would be nice too :)

    If the Packers can win the turnover battle by 2 today, I see a trip to the SuperBowl and of course if the defense can score a TD or even 2....even better!

    One of several articles that virtually bypass today's game. I love these types of articles. They're already going to be playing two weeks from now according to the media's ear-tickling narrative and hopefully, some of that entitlement mentality has sufficiently rubbed off on the 49er team just as it apparently has on so many of its fans:

    Our defense was bad today but the fumbled snap, missed reads, and interception didn't help

    Rodgers is really fortunate the overrated Bears made the NFC Championship in 2010, otherwise he'd be retiring with zero Super Bowls.
