Watch Aaron Rodgers post game interview and his mood and answers say all you need to know. “A missed opportunity we’ll probably think about for the rest of our careers.”
It’s only 19 days into the new year and Mike McCarthy, coach of the Green Bay Packers, is feeling supreme heat. Brandon Bostick is the ultimate scapegoat in a situation that was not entirely his fault. 6 plays to rule them all.
How to Lose the Game
With 7 minutes left in the game and the score 19-7, The Packers did this:
(6:53) 44-J.Starks right end to GB 14 for 1 yard
(6:09) 44-J.Starks up the middle to GB 19 for 5 yards
(5:26) 12-A.Rodgers pass incomplete short right to 81-A.Quarless
(5:22) 8-T.Masthay punts 37 yards to SEA 44
On the first play of the next possession Russell Wilson throws an interception. The Packers do this on the ensuing drive:
(5:04) 27-E.Lacy left tackle to GB 39 for -4 yards
(4:57) 27-E.Lacy left tackle to GB 37 for -2 yards
(4:50) 27-E.Lacy up the middle to GB 39 for 2 yards
(4:00) 8-T.Masthay punts 30 yards to SEA 31, Center-61-B.Goode, out of bounds.
When the reporter asked what he thought of this Aaron said, “Not very good.”
Notice the shitty punts which didn’t help. This lead to Russell Wilson driving the team down to score quickly with 2:13 left on the clock. Obviously Seattle recovers the onside kick (the one Brandon Bostick botched) and scoring thereafter to take the lead and convert an ABSURD 2 point conversion. Green Bay forced OT but lost on the first possession.
Many horrible events had to take place for this is happen. I don’t even think mentioning the 2 fourth and 1 opportunities in the beginning of the game were that big of a deal. You could argue that Seattle has the best D in the league and they could have stuffed them twice. That was not the focal point of Green Bay’s loss.
Mike McCarthy deserves the blame for the 2 series above. No reason to be this conservative when you have the best offense in the league. One more huge observation: WHY AREN’T YOU THROWING AT RICHARD SHERMAN WHO WAS PLAYING WITH ONE ARM!!!!!!!
