Well, no punts by the Lions included one turnover. So it's not like they scored every drive. And the Packers did have a sack. No that this means the Packers defense was good in any way. I just like facts being accurate.
Well, you'll find out soon enough.
It hasn't worked in the past, except for that time it did. Ha! I always love that argument. And the only reason Favre left, if you remember your history, is because the Packers had some young QB waiting in the wings. Guy by the name of Aaron Rodgers. The Packers, currently, do not have that situation.
So, can the good folks on this chat answer me a question. Did one of the national talking heads like Colin Cowherd say something stupid like Aaron Rodgers should leave the Packers? Because this new fear among the fan base is awfully bizarre.
If Cobb out of the backfield takes carries and touches away from Aaron Jones, I'm not in favor.
Oh, yes. Definitely. Remember, the 49ers entered the wilderness after Montana and Young. You've been warned.
They signed, what, seven free agents this offseason, and they're probably drafting high this spring. But whatevs, enough time wasted.
As I said earlier in the chat, a fresh perspective at GM probably wouldn't be the worst thing if the franchise is entering an offseason where it has an opportunity to reset.
I mean, your first two points, sure. But the QB thing, I don't get. That's business in the NFL.
Color me shocked, Packers fans want a change.
Well, if I can just stare into my crystal ball... ask again later.
My guess would be between 6 and 8 wins.
Meh. That's not unreasonable.
I've always thought it's more players than anything. Remember, this was a personnel department that drafted four straight defenders this spring. They didn't do that because they were loaded with talent already.
That's one way to look at it. The other way is that if you're not making the playoffs, and you're not at 8-8, might as well get the best draft position possible.
I hate to say it, because you really seem set on this idea of change, but if they're embarrassed week after week, it's pretty easy to reason that's because they don't have Aaron Rodgers. Sorry.
Last night, it was probably because they trailed from the start.
Hey Robert, my name is Ryan Wood. You have me confused for Pete Dougherty. I'm a beat writer; he's a columnist. I'm not giving you my opinion on what should happen, because that's not my job. I'm analyzing what's likely to happen. Big difference. Thanks for playing.
Well, it's ... not what you want.
Sure. They're frustrated. They were a 4-1 team probably headed to the Super Bowl one month ago. Now, they're not.
Ravens are a beatable team too, especially at home.
Aaron Rodgers probably has a good seven seasons of high-quality football left, so it's premature to assume the Packers are only getting one ring in his rein. With that said, one ring would be disappointing.
They don't have the personnel to do that.
Brett Hundley's completion percentage improved dramatically. Which is important, because sub-50 percent doesn't even give your team a chance.
That's not unreasonable. As for the srength and conditioning coaches, you're reaching.
I think it's more like pass rushers, pass rushers and pass rushers at this point.
Well, Aaron Rodgers finished 6-10 in his first season as a full-time starter, and that was with an entire offseason to prepare as a full-time starter, instead of being dropped into that role in the middle of October. So, yeah. A tall hill for Brett Hundley to climb.
First and foremost is pass rushers, but skill position on offense could be addressed to.
All right, folks. That's a good place to end today. Thanks to everyone who participated and followed along. We'll do this again next Monday. But, will we be discussing a Packers win in Chicago, or a season-crippling loss? Stay tuned.
