Even Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, whose team comes into Lambeau Field on Sunday, sees what everyone else sees, which is an offense that isn't as efficient as it has been in the past.
Following the 2014 season, Aaron Rodgers won his second MVP award.
McCarthy insists no one with the Packers is satisfied with what has occurred so far. By my count there were nine of the 36 pass routes in which he was a target that he created enough separation to potentially make a catch. In his career, Rodgers has thrown nearly four times as many touchdowns (266) as interceptions (68). Four of those starts came last season. "But they're doing what they need to do to win games".
It was the first time since his first game as a full-time wide receiver that Cruz played and didn't record a catch. His yards per attempt on the season (6.3) is even lower than it was past year (6.7).
Luckily for the Packers they are getting solid efforts from their defense and run game to offset the play of Rodgers. It is uncertain if he will play next week against the Cowboys.
"It was beyond a rough game", Nelson told reporters afterward. Randall Cobb is a player whose reputation precedes his production as he has only topped 1,000 yards receiving in a season once. "We've been playing excellent run defense, and they're running the ball as efficient".
Tom Coughlin had to remove Manning from that December 12, 2004, game - one the Giants ended up losing, 37-14 - and there were immediate questions about the staying power of their quarterback. What does a performance like this do for Cobb's confidence & the Packers offense? More tests are expected to be done on Cobb on Monday.

Before joining the United Nations refugee agency, he spent more than 20 years in government and public service. He will replace South Korean Ban Ki-moon, who will step down at the end of 2016 after serving two terms.
Kudos go to the performance of the offensive line.
So the focus shifts to a quarterback, as it does during most bumpy times, who looked as uncomfortable and threw with as little precision Sunday as he has in several years. He has good size and athleticism, and while he isn't an elite tight end he can't be forgotten as he has his quarterback's trust and can make plays downfield (see: 2015 Hail Mary vs. Detroit).
The waiver wire will be extremely active this week with a handful of teams scrapping the bottom of the barrel to find a starting running back. He is a big, powerful runner, but often times he lacks the agility and quickness to really get going if he is stopped before he can build up a head of steam.
Q: Early in the game the Packers were mixing up the personnel a ton on the offensive side of the ball, but went away from it in the second half, why the change? Unfortunately, Lacy was unable to finish the game, suffering an ankle injury late in the third.
"Randall's sore, just talked to him briefly in the meetings. Maybe I should start taking some more sacks", said Rodgers, trying to downplay the ugly and unimaginable stat. While it is only four games into the National Football League season it is a little alarming, especially to Packers' fans, that the team only ranks 27th in passing yards per game. Left tackle David Bakhtiari, center J.C. Tretter, and right guard T.J. That said, it's Aaron Rodgers.
If the losing does persist, there's a decent chance that general manager Jerry Reese could follow Coughlin out the door after the 2016 season, as he was the architect of this current team and authorized the spending of over $200 million on the defense; one that hasn't looked too good in the last three weeks. He has looked uncomfortable and lost in his last two games.
