Another week, another letdown for the cheesehead faithful.
After an embarrassing loss to the Raiders in week five prior to the bye week, the Packers took the 14 days off and did absolutely nothing to look like an improved team.
This week, the finger-pointing doesn’t stop at one single person – the blame goes all the way around after scoring just 17 points against the league’s worst defense and losing, yet again, for the 3rd straight game.
For the 2nd time in four weeks, the offense, led by head coach Matt LaFleur and former first-round draft pick Jordan Love, failed to score a single point – again, keep in mind, this was the league’s worst defense – the same defense Miami scored 70 points on just weeks ago.
Jordan Love, fair or not, has been unable to deliver the ball down the field in a consistent manner.
According to ESPN Stats & Info, Love is now 6-27 on throws 20 or more yards downfield.
The playcalling, as a common theme this season, has been atrocious. No creativeness, rarely once-often used motion, no rollouts, and a feel of no trust in #10.
The offensive line cannot only get any defenders out of the way with untimely penalties can’t even get out of their own way.
The receivers are running the wrong routes and, at times, are running into each other.
Overall, the Packers have been held to 20 points or fewer in four straight games—the longest streak since 2005.
No one can stay healthy, and the finger-pointing is just starting to begin.
The defense has been better than advertised, but the lack of turnovers and game-changing plays have been far too few.
Times are tough in Titletown; there’s no debate about that, and with the schedule beginning to toughen up, things could get uglier – buckle up, Packer fans, the ride from here on out could remain bumpy.
