The Good: Rashson Gary, Rasul Douglas, Jordan Love, Luke Musgrave

The Bad: 1st 3 quarters

The Ugly: Too many penalties and mental mistakes.

Great 4th quarter effort to come back from 17-0. Good to see the Packers resilience. Hopefully they can make it easier on themselves going forward by limiting penalties and mental errors. Coaching needs to work on cleaning up the numerous Packer mistakes. Nonetheless the Packers prevailed for this week at least. Bring on the Lions. Thanks, Since '61

The Good: The leadership provided by RG, Savage and J Love in the face of what seemed to be a sure loss.
The Bad: Special Teams, allowing a punt return for a touchdown and penalties on returns.
The Ugly: Chicken Little Packer Fans crowing about the end of the world, calling for heads to roll, hating on Joe Berry for allowing a whole 10 points and losing confidence in what will become a really, really good quarterback. Look at that injury list, good grief!

Good - what a 4th quarter!
Bad - penalties, penalties, penalties.
Ugly - Run offense. It's just not good. From blocking OL to our RB. We need Aaron Jones badly.

Good: Jordan Love’s demeanor (and clutch play)

Bad: having Wilson, who had all of what, 3 snaps in his career, involved in a very complicated 4th down play.

Ugly: WR drops. I know they’re rookies but sheesh.

Good: Gary knocking Carr out of the game (stopped the Saint offensive Mojo), Love’s calm poise and execution in the 4th Q, Musgrave balling, Carlton- keep it up!

Bad: Tackling, Love’s slow starts with passing accuracy, young receivers dropping on the money passes

Ugly: Offensive penalties especially false starts when your at Lambeau, Packer players continually slipping on the Lambeau turf. This problem appears to have increased since the new turf was installed in the past few years. It’s our home turf, we slip/slide at Lambeau more than the competition.

This the type of slipping on the Lambeau field that gets our players hurt.

The great (needed to add it for this week) : Rashan Gary....rumor has it that MLF was gonna give Gary a game ball but as soon as an assistant handed MLF the ball, Gary threw him into some lockers for yet another sack.

The good : JLove and the offense staying even keeled. Last week in ATL there were some deer in the headlight looks from the Packers O.
Shout out to the coaching staff on both sides. Its hard enough to win with a young team and then to miss so many key players on both sides of the ball and then come from behind and hold is definitely a feather in their cap for this week at least.

The bad : Slipping on the home field. The home team shouldnt be slipping like that in good weather. Someone screwed up somewhere.
JLove's sliding...kind of nitpicky but at the same time an ugly/unsure slide invites unwanted contact.

The ugly : JLove's deep ball accuracy. JLove has shown plenty of growth but he needs to start showing some more growth on his accuracy on the deep shots.
The boo birds at Lambeau at halftime. Its week 3 in the FIRST YEAR of a major rebuild on offense. Inexperience and some health issues at key spots on the Defense. Ive been saying all year that there is good potential but that its gonna be bumpy. In week one Bears fans were right to boo at halftime. In week three some Packer fans were being whiny and entitled when they let the boos fly.

It's hard to say this but it's true, "The Packers did not WIN this game, The Saints lost it." Lets not sugar coat and face the fact that the Packers were able to catch up on the score board because Carr went down and for the most part they were done scoring.

The Good:
The defense did step it up a notch from the Atlanta game and yet they have a ways to go.
The Saints defense did not have their best game and again our O-Line did fairly well giving love time.

The Bad:
Play execution, Non discipline penalties, inability to stretch the field. And by the way, when will Dillon from last year return to the line up (beast mode)? He has not lost a step, He has lost like 12.

The Ugly:
Love's missing open receivers by miles.... He so far has not shown any threat for a ball beyond 10 or 12 yards. I believe Lafluer does not trust him to stretch the field in any meaningful capacity, and who could blame him?

So we'll take the GIFT of the W and will hope and pray Love can get better with his longer passes. Thursday against the Lyon will not be a cake walk, They took care of Atlanta where we couldn't, They seemed to improve their game substantially and they would love nothing more than to come in to our house and take us down. This will be a real test for JLove and hopefully discipline and execution will return to keep us not only in the game but to dominate. That's my prayer anyway.....

The Packers DID win this game, no matter who the QB was on the other side to come back and win a game by being down with 5 starters out, oh yes THEY WON THE GAME because the Saints only lost one player while we still lost 3 more starters during the process of game, Valentine, Tom and Campbell. Sorry to disagree with you 100%. Ugly for sure was the number of flags the refs threw against us. Saints had a few also as well. Love is very poised for a first year starter, but agree needs much better LONG THROW accuracy!

You do realize that Winstons stat sheet was almost identical to Carrs before Carr went oout? What great magic was Carr gonna bring to change the outcome of this game?

MLF doesnt trust Love to stretch the field? Are you even watching these games? I have seen more deep ball attempts already this year by Love then maybe all of last year by Rodgers.

I’m guessing that some of yesterday’s were likely catches if not, for the defensive pass interference. Otherwise why interfere? That works as well as a catch.

“None of them were good throws.” You clearly don’t watch. Some throws were off certainly, but there were some peaches in there too. At this point it’s time to move on from your agenda or just start looking foolish.

Carr manages to sustain possession better than Winston was able to. They have not had a run game all year and have struggled not for yards but to score in the red zone all year. The quick outs that followed significantly helped us to get in rhythm.

Mr Love took over in the 4th quarter and the young receivers made some astonishingly accomplished plays. The end was as inspiring and promising as disheartening and ugly the needless penalties and bad special teams play were that preceded it.

Good: Jordan Love 4th quarter
Bad: Jordan Love 1st, 2nd and 3rd quarters
Ugly: Me for doubting this team had the heart to do what they proved they could do.

Warts and all at this point in the season, this team showed that they may just have what it takes to become champions.

Good, overcoming a 3 quarter shit show. Penalties, drops, Dillon, injuries, special teams.
Bad, Making excuses because Carr got injured. Gary clobbered him, it's football, injuries happen. Blame N.O
. o-line.
Ugly, over reacting to mistakes by an energetic group of really good young players. These guys are good and will only get better.
