I can’t really fault those who want to blame Dom Capers and the Packers defense for this loss, but the real blame lies at the feet of Mike McCarthy and the Packers offense. Our own Adam Czech points the finger at the Packers last drive of the first half, but let me take this a little further.
After the Packers went up 21-3 in the second quarter, let’s look at their next three posessions:
2nd Quarter: Green Bay Packers at 1:17
1-10-GB 43 (1:17) (Shotgun) A.Rodgers pass short right to J.Kuhn pushed ob at GB 49 for 6 yards (J.Freeman).
2-4-GB 49 (1:12) (Shotgun) A.Rodgers pass incomplete short right to J.Nelson.
3-4-GB 49 (1:07) (Shotgun) A.Rodgers pass incomplete short right to J.Finley (S.Brown).
4-4-GB 49 (1:04) T.Masthay punts 36 yards to IND 15, Center-B.Goode, fair catch by T.Hilton.
3rd Quarter: Green Bay Packers at 15:00
1-10-GB 20 (15:00) (Shotgun) A.Rodgers pass incomplete short left.
PENALTY on GB-T.Crabtree, Offensive Holding, 10 yards, enforced at GB 20 – No Play.

The Packers will be without Greg Jennings for at least a week, if not longer. It’s time for their young WRs to step up. James Jones will replace him in the lineup, but who will have more fantasy value.
