    I've long given up on seeing the team in the SB ever again. But it gives me some satisfaction knowing that Jerry will go to his grave knowing that he and his family will forever bear the stench of failure and futility.

    Yeah, he's made a lot of money, but so have a lot of other people in his circles. The difference, for him, will always be that those other entrepreneurs or business people were not just rich but architects of success in their given fields.

    The whole point of an NFL franchise is to win -- not just build Taj Mahal stadiums or make a lot of money vacuuming the fans' pockets. That makes him a huckster, not a success.

    He has to be sitting there, in his dotage, watching the humiliation, season after season after season, knowing that up until he took total control in the mid-90s of the NFL's most successful franchise up to that point, since then has been an abysmal failure. All on his watch.

    Rest in peace, Jerry.

      I agree, the roster has the talent. Sure it's not perfect but no team is. Great coaches cover up the weaknesses. They also aren't afraid to bench shitty players in favor of rookies like Wilson. Instead we will continue to create no turnovers while the great white hype continues to take terrible angles and give up plays.

      And honestly I'd be looking for DT help too. Practice squads, free agents or whatever. We need help there. But instead we are content putting out the same guys and getting nothing.

        Not seeing the forest for the trees. Putting band-aids on hemorrhaging wounds. It's not pieces here and there, it's the whole organization. Looking for a DT or this and that is pointless as long the organization's underlying structure doesn't change.

          Why is it that we heard about the strength of our defensive line all offseason. The interior is pure shite. And all the raves about Malikís great training camp.

                  Must be Rodgers.

                  hmmmmmm...
                  None of the instances listed put any points on the board for Green Bay but the offensive play by Rogers put up 31 points for Green Bay Sunday.

                    What? Every score except one in the Matt Flynn comeback from 28-3 was a pass except for one Eddie Lacy goalline TD

                      Your statement insinuates Rodgers was a one-man wrecking crew, supporting cast be damned. Rodgers' offensive play put up 31 points...let's take a look.

                      238 passing yards, 34 attempts (7.0 YPA) and 0 TDs.

                      If Aikman or Prescott, these numbers would be criticized. They pale in comparison to the great Tony Romo and his 300 yards and 3 TDs.
                      Rodgers' 7.0 YPA is dink-and-dunk, especially since it's lower than Prescott's career 7.4 YPA (and that excludes this year's 9.4 YPA).

                      Aaron Jones ran for 107 yards (5.6 YPA) and added 75 yards receiving. But when Ezekiel Elliott puts up those numbers, does Dak Prescott get applauded for his offensive play to put up 31 points?

                      Secondly, our miscues gave Green Bay's offense starting field position at the DAL 47 (first INT), GB 44 (missed FG), GB 42 (bad punt), DAL 29 (third INT).

                      While Aaron Rodgers is one of the all-time greats, last night he took a backseat to Aaron Jones and our offensive miscues to provide great field position which contributed significantly to the end result of 31 points.
                      ---
                      Case in point: 2016, DAL 30, GB 16.

                      Would you say the offensive play by Dak Prescott put up 30 points for Dallas? Nope. You'd say it was Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott just didn't lose it.

                      Statistically, Ezekiel Elliott had the exact same 5.6 YPA as Aaron Jones. Dak Prescott had better stats than Rodgers, going 247 yards, 27 attempts (9.2 YPA), 3 TDs, 1INT.

                      Cowboys also had a +2 turnover margin.

                        There is absolutely no need to put Aikman or Prescott in this conversation. The offense for Dallas turned the ball over too many times and that that allowed Green Bay the field position to score where a lot of yardage wasnít necessary to put points on the board. That was an obvious circumstance and comparing individual performance stats only shows that Dallas gave Rogers all the gifts he needed to make the game an easy victory for Green Bay.

                          I donít recall saying anything about Matt Flynn.

The fact that the team came out so flat and sloppy after a loss, while Garrett seemingly has little to no responsibility over the actual X's/O's, is a huge indictment on how shitty of a coach he is. Prescott saying that they were overconfident after starting 3-0 all but cemented it, and I'm sure Garrett was all too willing to let them tell themselves they were fine because they would've won the Saints game if not for the fumbles.
                            This. Just another example of why he needs to go. There's no excuse for this team coming out and getting down 17-0 at home. None. Garrett is a loser.

                              The QB accounted for no tds either. And we still got creamed.

                                It was actually 24-0.

                                Last time they played here (playoff game in 2016) we got down 21-3.
