McCarthy and Rodgers have not fared well when playing from behind late in games
Last season and after the loss to the Seattle Seahawks, I wrote about how the Green Bay Packers were facing a turning point in their early season. It seemed like a knee-jerk reaction to what was a huge debacle by the replacement officials and the NFL because it was after only three games. Turns out, the Packers did get it together enough to win the NFC North and win a playoff game. In looking back at last season, the Seattle loss still looms as the turning point in 2012.
Here we are, three weeks into the 2013 season and seemingly at what could be this season’s turning point. Sure, some will say it’s too early, I’m being hasty, I’m a downer on Twitter and when this team gets all of its injured guys back, the Packers will be fine.

He’s in the best shape I’ve ever seen him in, physically.” “His arms look […]
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told ESPN 540 in Milwaukee today that he doesn’t have any problems with head coach Mike McCarthy after their heated argument on the sidelines of this past week’s loss to the Bengals.

Mike McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers got into it on the sidelines during the second quarter of the Green Bay Packers’ game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, and the head coach could be seen giving Rodgers the business.
Maybe there was a disagreement about play calling or whatever, but Rodgers definitely said something his coach wasn’t feeling.

Are there cracks in the armor of the discount double check guy?

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been sacked 10 times already and pressured numerous more.
Many people have been praising the offensive line for two straight solid rushing performances.
Granted, the numbers sure do look gaudy. The Packers racked up 139 yards rushing and 5.8 yards a rush against the Redskins. But let’s not forget that the Redskins haven’t exactly been scaring...

Overall, lots of bad but a couple of good things showed up in the Packers loss to the Bengals. On one hand, we haven’t seen a game as messy as this one since maybe the 18 penalty, 2 turnover night against the Bears in 2010. Aaron Rodgers looked a little lost amongst all the new faces making an appearance due to injuries and the Packers didn’t look as sharp as they normally...
You lead by 14, fall behind by 20 and then come back in the fourth quarter to win by four.
