#PackersDaily: What's wrong with the Green Bay Packers?

Earlier this afternoon, I chatted with Packers fans about the demoralising loss in Detroit, the issues on offense, turnover differential and all things Green and Gold.

I don't see anything other than a team struggling at times to find it's rhythm and play with consistency. We have already seen what they're capable of without them getting their mojo rolling. The Packers are consistent year to year in that they always use the first half the season to fine tune their game. I'm truly not worried if they go 4-3-1 over the first half as I'm more concerned about how they finish out the regular season. They could be 4-4-1 and close out with 6 wins going into the playoffs to finish 11-4-1 and I would be happy.

The offense is not fun to watch. They labor. Aaron does not like playing with who he’s got. McCarthy does not like coaching the team. The game plan is predictable. Boring. It’s only when they get behind do things open up and they become whatchable. They should have lost to Chicago. McCarthy needs to go. This has to be his last year. Otherwise they are wasting Aaron.

Defense is boring too. Where is the toughness of this defense!?
Our WRs keep getting severe hits, but our own secondary is so soft.
Haha had that one star moment with his hit and INT. I don’t even remember when was the last time we got that BOOM effect from our defense. They are so rare.

Aaron Jones should get the ball more. Special teams need to be coached to quit blocking in the back. If I was the defensive coach, I would move Clay Matthews around on the D-line and to inside linebacker.

All I remember is how this was the team to beat in August.
Excellent young offensive talent at wide receiver, Jimmy Graham as Aaron Rodgers' red zone scoring machine, young corners and safeties racking up interceptions, breaking up passes, returning interceptions for tds'. Aaron Jones breaking into the open field for 25 yard runs. Kumerow and Tonyan giving Rodgers solid depth in the receiver corps.
Is training camp over so soon?

My thoughts on the the video

-A lot of people talking about the McCarthy - Reid comparison. While I get the comparison, lets just remember that the Eagles were not better off after Reid left. Obviously the Packers have Rodgers and the Eagles didn't have that, but sometimes change doesn't work out.

-MVS & ESB. I thought both look good. They made some rookie mistakes but both shined when given the opportunity. Both bring size and speed. I hope the coaches find ways to use them after Cobb and Allison come back.

-Through first 5 games. Lets all just relax. Its been 5 games. There is a lot of season left.

-Rodgers missing practice is hurting him! Coming off of basically missing almost off of last year and then no preseason and now missing practice. He just is in a funk. He needs practice reps to get better!

-Tomlin is spot on! The refs have been PATHETIC!

Lot of stuff not going well. Bad execution, bad play calling, bad refs. This year has been much worse then most years. Unless major improvements are made, SF may be our only win for a long time.

If I"m part of that team, it would be about time for a player's only meeting.

If I'm a coach, it's about time to lock the entire coaching staff in a room and don't come out till you have a plan to get the train back on the tracks.

We didn't resign Jordy and signed Jimmy G instead?
Could of had Jordy for next to nothing. Jimmy G is our big threat in the red zone and down the seam so far FAIL! Repeat The Course Gute!

Jordy would not have made much of a difference just like Jimmy Graham isn't making much of a difference. Both are old and past their prime. It happens. It happens to them all and by the way, Aaron Rodgers is also past his prime. The guys in their prime (Mahomes, Goff, Mayfield, etc. and their teams are looking great and their fans are excited just like we were in 2008.. It's a young man's game for the most part. Sure Rodgers can still play but injuries and time is catching up with him and it's showing in the W/L column. Getting old isn't such a bad thing. You can still do things you've done before just not as good. Jordy can probably still bale hay on his Kansas farm until he's 60 possibly 70 if he takes care of himself.

i am not a McCarthy Fan As A Coach, But People Are Open , But problem Is Aaron rogers Isnt Throwing The Ball. There is open receivers Under neath He Hangs on To ball to Long And He cant Move With His Knee Hurt. He Needs to start Being a Pocket passer, Take Under Neath Options, Also The Longer We Keep the ball , The Opposing Team cant Score, And This Will Be Crucial Against The Rams And Patriots, Wont Do Any Good Throwing Downfield And Scoring In 2 To 3 Minutes, Keep the Ball Run the Clock

Drafting errors have hurt the Packers. I was just reading the TJ Watt is tied for the league league in sacks at 6 with his brother. The 4th rounder we got for passing on TJ is has been cut by the Packers and King is not a super star.

I know it's pie in the sky, but we could certainly us a league leader in sacks on the edge on our team.
