Spot on MarkinMadison! Jenkins is the best player on this team. That tackle after the INT was the kind of move and form not seen since my "yute" during the Lombardi years. CheeseheadTV needs to highlight it as the only good play of the game. Our suck axe defenders should watch his tape on how to form tackle. If we need help at DL consider moving him there for gosh sakes, he plays will intelligence, passion and heart!

Yep. He could show the D how to take the right angle and how to hustle from behind to get there. And then to just get up and walk away. Love the play and the player.

You should send a bill to Rodgers & Kevin King & Joe Barry & ask for money back.

I flew from South Dakota for the game.
Like many others, I spent a gob of money on transportation, food, lodging, etc….and for what—a complete and pathetic clown show!!
The only professional thing I can say is how much I respect the loyalty and fervor of Packer fans—I salute them—our devotion is like no other fan base. Had we had something to cheer about, we would have taken over the stadium.
But a giant-sized thumbs down to Packer management, coaching staff, and team, for humiliating your devoted fan base.

Bad: Offense: Rodgers was inaccurate
Adams looked like $5M receiver not a $25M receiver versus Lattimore
Bad: Defense - Kevin King burned for another long TD - can we start playing Stokes now?
- Run defense was terrible - is Jerry Gray a better DC choice yet?

Ugly - Coaching - Was it LaFleur or Rodgers not calling run plays??

good. kevin king getting burnt by harris at the end on a play that looked identical to the scotty miller play. HE just fucking let him go. its good because it should spell the end of kevin king. they only needed an excuse to bench him, now they have it. bad. dean lowry. the guards. the mike mccarthy offense being reborn. UGLY. the team literally just having no emotion. it was over at 21 to 3 in the third. the saints were playing for new orleans and their city that has been decimated again, what were the packers playing for? thats what they need to figure out. because the ugly was every damn player just hanging out with their hand on their hips. in the first quarter. how do you show up for week one with no emotion? joe barry and matt lafluer and the packers "leaders" are all to blame here. the lions game will be a long one. that team was down thirty i didnt see them throwin in the damn towel.

Probably in last place as point differential is all they would have to settle ties. That point differential is going to kill the Pack's computer ratings all year because this D is unlikely to hold many if any offenses to under 20 points.

First team receivers were on the sideline when Love got into the game. WTH keep those over paid players out there and see what Love could do with them. Love has yet to play with the WR divas. He did complete the only pass to Roger's caddy R. Cobb.

Agree with Aaron's pick's so I'll not repeat them.
Good: it was only one loss, and there are 16 more games. And Jaire looked pretty good most times I focused on him.
Bad: O Line didn't pass block or run block well at all against an average to below average Saints interior D Line.
Ugly: Secondary mix-ups left receivers embarrassingly wide open in the end zone multiple times, looked like garbage time in preseason game one with undrafted free agents from Northeast Rhode Island State manning the secondary.

Good: I have to Agree with Aaron...it is one game, but our punter left a great first impression.

Bad: Where was the running? Was this plays changed at the line or Matt panicking?

Ugly: I get not caring in the preseason, but it felt like people were treating this like a vacation.

Ugly #2: Having to see the Aaron Zen guitar player commercial about 10 times during the game. Ugh glad he wasn't in camp so he can earn some more State Farm $$$.

Good- Jordan Love got some garbage minutes. A first down to the only WR under contract in 2022 AR!
The Bad- all of it. AR destroyed this team in the off season. No coherence. No passion. No cares. Collect the paycheck and wait for the trade
The Ugly- everything. This looks like a 0-17 team. The local HS squad could have won by 2 TDS.

Ship him out now rebuild now. Get draft picks for the O line. Ship out Adams. The packers got crushed by a squad of UFDAs

Rodgers played one of his worst games in the last four or five years. He appeared to be indecisive and when he did pick a target it was the wrong one which was the case with both interceptions. However, in his defense, the toss intended for DA was affected by the defender making contact with him and the line collapsing around him. But as he said in his press conf remarks he should have thrown the ball to Aaron Jones instead.

This staggeringly bad performance may be reflective of lack of sufficient pre-season game time although it seems that MLF's game plan was bad to begin with and he FAILED TO ADJUST to the Saints' strategy of double covering both Adams and MVS although it is impossible to assess that properly without the benefit of re-watching the game and studying tape of the Saints' CB and safety play overall.

One of the defining characteristics of a truly great NFL coach is the ability to make adjustments during the game and certainly during halftime. With the exception of the opening second half drive, the Packers seemed utterly lost on offense.

The defense seems to be worse than last year and the lack of pressure on Winston and the inability to stop the Saints' offense exposed the Packers' TERRIBLE d-line. Kenny Clark alone will NOT get the job done. This will be a major issue for the team for the entire year unless they find another big body to stuff the run. It is too early to say whether Slayton will be able to rise to the occasion. But it is very obvious that the defense was left looking utterly clueless throughout the game. The loss should not be placed entirely on Rodgers and MLF - you can't score if you are giving up TWO 15-play drives to the other side in the first half on the way to a 17-0 lead. The horror, the horror...

There was a total lack of situational awareness on defense. Why, on the first TD, on a goal to go situation, is Dean Lowery (or ANY DL, playing a yard deep in the end zone? On the 2nd TD (a pass), why is Amos going for the tackle in the End Zone? That pass has to be contested BEFORE the catch.

This was a really ugly D performance today. Some really basic stuff missing…like any sort of football IQ.

I agree with the criticism of LaFleur. Of course, the main thing was that the team came out as flat as they could possibly be, and the game plan appeared to be nonexistent.

But here is my question for you guys... did anyone else think that it was a horrible call for MLF to go for it on 4th and 1 with 9 minutes left in the FIRST QUARTER, down only by 3, and sitting on your OWN 34 YARD LINE??? I mean, if that doesn't scream, "Hey, I'm overconfident!" I don't know what does.

I know people want play calling to be aggressive, and yes, I know they got the first down, but I thought that was an egregiously, inexplicably bad call. Being aggressive, sure. Being stupid, not so much.

Good: I feel better about Indiana University's season opening loss to Iowa. Only 6-34!!!

Bad: The whole game

Ugly: There was a dropback by Winston, I believe in the 2nd half, where he was well protected and was going though his progression and then, suddenly, just relaxed and stood there. As if he was having a chat with a friend in a hallway, while a bit distracted with something going on down the hall. Then he finally saw an open receiver and stopped chatting and began to play again. I swear I've never seen anything like that before.
