The Packers had a familiar set of foot shootings in their loss to the Patriots on Sunday night and at some time you have to accept this is who they are and what they’ll be until they make a coaching change. Mike McCarthy has done a better job in aggregate in his tenure as head coach than many people realize, but it’s time for him to go soon. The weirdly structured Packers’ front office of Mark Murphy and Brian Gutekunst should be working hard on identifying who and what comes next.
The Packers may well still finish 6-2 and eke into playoffs at 9-6-1, but once they get there they ain’t winning four games in a row against heavyweights. You can still say that they have a legit shot to win any one-off game that Aaron Rodgers plays — the last two weeks against the Rams and Pats proved that, even as the wheels fell off the wagon in the fourth quarter in Foxboro — but they aren’t gonna play four straight games where they don’t self-inflict the same old problems.
