There was also a soft penalty on Sherman that overruled the sack and egregrious holding on the Rodgers run afterwards.

I mean if getting shredded by a nobody and squeaking by with liberal referee assistance is a good sign for the future, everyone except Oakland should be excited for the future. It was a poor showing by a team that is looking like it's running out of steam.

That penalty wasn't soft, there's no point having a conversation with you.

Of course it was. No mention of all the holding in his run?

Enjoy the season pal, I'm sure Green Bay have turned a corner, got their swagger back and will challenge for the top 4 now.

Seriously mate did Brett Favre or Aaron Rodgers shit in your cornflakes once? Or was it multiple times.

I'm as big a Rodgers fan as you'll find but I just hate the shit narratives that come out of games like this. Hyucking old dumbasses saying "that Aaron Rodgers does it again", ignoring all context and glossing over the BS refereeing calls. It's not just Rodgers, it's Brady, Brees, Manning when he was around too. When it's a close game between two excellent teams (SNF for example) I'm fine with it because it usually comes down to excellence. When it's a good team and a plucky gang of bums the narrative should be "why has Fat Mike completely shit the bed and needed Rodgers to bail him out yet again?"

It's exactly the same as when the Mancs win with a late Fellaini header after shitting it for an hour. All the swagger is back and corner turned nonsense comes out and it's intellectually dishonest.

That's what I was pointing out to you before. There really aren't any good things to take from a narrow win over a nothing team. A truly good team with good players (or any coach that isn't Fat Mike) wins that one 28-6.

Agree with you on McCarthy and I have agreed with you in the past about our draft/trade policy. There are some very good players on this team though, we'll see where we are at the end of the year. Bad calls go both ways, we've been fucked over by a few already this year. I didn't see a replay of his run but if there was holding on it then fair dues. It should've been called back. We could've had a PI call in the endzone on one of our 3rd and longs as well but we didn't get it.

I may be biased but the Packers are the furthest thing from the Mancs and I'd like if you could refrain from comparing the two again  ;D

Except for ... the win, which is all that matters in the end. You have to respect any team in this league. They get paid as well. Call me crazy but I think the ability to win with a bad performance is quite valuable in this league. Packers are yet to play a compelete game but are 3-2-1. They could easily be 1-5 as well. They are staying afloat despite not hitting their potential. That's actually a part of being succesful in the NFL. If you have a bad patch you survive and advance.

A generational talent (Rodgers/Pogba) held back by a finished coach (Fat Mike/Jose) playing in front of a bunch of hysterical psychotic fans? Seems dead on to me!  ;D

Winning because of Rodgers rather than actually being a legitimately good team is why Rodgers has one ring instead of five. And I see a fading force rather than a team on the up. Rodgers has 3-5 years left IMO and the Packers are going to waste the next 2/3 of those

John Mara calling out Beckham Jr for his comments to the media. 🙈 Yeah, hes the problem. The guy whos best moment come when HE threw a touchdown pass.
I wish no ills to Eli, he provided me with some fantastic memories, and I know our  o-line is pitiful but the levels the organisation is going to suggest hes not the problem is incredible. Personally I think the terrible o-line weve had the past few years has broken him mentally, but that still means he is part of the problem.

Beckham Jr might not be the problem, his comments certainly don't help though. Mara and OBJ are both at fault here, as is Gettleman and whoever else is responsible for failing to either draft or pick up a better quarterback than Eli in the offseason.

I will slag off Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy until my dying breath. Aaron Rodgers should have 5 rings.

I also think that whole cheesehead/WE OWN OUR TEAM thing is embarrassing. But otherwise I have no issue with them at all.

We do need more angry fans defending their team on here, unfortunately there's only three good teams in the league at the minute so everyone is kinda just miserable haha.

Going back to my original point about Green Bay's comeback not being impressive, I can think of an example of a very good comeback - week one, Green Bay vs Chicago. They were beaten down and then adjusted and retooled and out played Chicago in a win. That was a great fucking comeback.

I would consider the fact fans 'pay' for stadium upkeep & regeneration as a good thing. It also means all profits are re-invested in to the team and surrounding areas. The team will also never relocate or ever be sold so that can only be a good thing.

Yes I understand no one is going to make any profit from it, but if you're buying stocks as a fan I don't think your intention is to make a profit. If you were buying stocks to make a profit that would ruin the socialist aspect of it. I also don't think it can be described as a scam when the intentions are clearly laid out. No one is being hoodwinked there.

Fine, does "taking advantage of gleeful idiots" work for you? They're a financially successful franchise and could pay for these expansions over time without gouging their fans.

It's not even about making a profit, it's about paying money for something worthless. Why not have Rodgers and the gang stand outside the stadium with a bucket? At least it would be honest!

I also think the Cheesehead thing is cringeworthy, tho I think most nfl support is cringeworthy.

I havent got much time for McCarthy as he has obviously underachieved with Rodgers.

Ill support them regardless of whos in charge tho as I have lived in Wisconsin and family still there, the whole state is crazy for them.
