Really nice to be back where they should be. WAY better than 7 and freaking 9

Swept the M-Fing bears.

Swept the M-Fing vikings.

Beat Dallas

We have a GM that will actually try to make improvements outside the draft

Need a Legit #2 WR.  You just can not continue to hope and pray that UDFA or 5th/6th rounders are going to come through. If MVS or GMO or ESB or Kummerow are being looked at as anything other than a 4th spot, that's a massive offseason fail. 

Need a Legit TE. Is that on the roster? Don't think so, but they HAVE to do something here.

Need LBs. The current roster of LBs are little more than warm bodies.

We got pass rushers and decent secondary.

Lazard is going to be great and cheap number 3 WR next year.

Jenkins with the most impressive rookie season from a Packer since Clay or BJ.

Some of the youngsters gained valuable playoff experience.

We have an excellent head coach.

The cupboard is bare in the front middle.   Outside of Clark there isnโ€™t anyone worth a shit on the DL.

We need a legit WR2 desperately.  

ILB cupboard is completely empty.

This team went further than anybody legitimately thought it would.  I was hoping for a wild card birth at best.  Turns out we were one game away from the Super Bowl and got beat by a much superior team.  I'll take it.

GB gets an off season to dabble in FA, cut dead weight and find some young studs in the draft.  

Rodgers and the boys get another off season to dial that offense in.

+ After the past two terrible years and all the off-season changes, I'm relatively pleased with the season in general. I thought we were still a few players away from being a contender so I didn't expect to get this far this quickly.

- I hate playing like shit and losing NFCCG's. It's like a punch in the gut to come so close but not be able to get over the hump and make it to the SB. Oh well, the football season is now officially over with for me.

You win the Martinez debate.  He's not good enough if GB wants to take the next step.  GB currently has nothing at MLB.  Nobody can cover, make a play or fill a gap to stop a runner at or behind the LOS.  

Cory Littleton is the guy I want in FA.  

++ Thereโ€™s a lot to work with on the roster, far different from when we were looking at overhauling the entire defense or something. Yes, we have spots that need upgrading, but we are in a lot better spot.

++ We have a head coach. There were a lot of things, even in todayโ€™s game before it got out of hand, that were good. Over the year, we ran better this year than in the past many years. Guys were schemed open. First-year guy, and I think heโ€™ll learn and get better.

โ€” Maybe it is time to move on from Pettine. He was given more toys, but couldnโ€™t develop/use them. Yes, we need a better MLB or two, but what happened to the DL? Were they really that bad except Clark or were they never used in the scheme? Were they not developed? You can see Gary has some potential; why didnโ€™t it develop more? Why no adjustments in games?

Overall, great year. Just want it to be better next year.

+ great season really 

+ swept the bears...and the vikings

+ I think there is a decent foundation for the future 

-Gute did a great job with free agents this year and the coaching staff

-Gute's drafting leaves a bit to be desired-obviously the 2019 crew has to mature and Jenkins has been outstanding  but Savage looked lost at times tonight , Gary can't unseat undrafted players and....2018 was terrifying-Jaire Alexander a keeper-the rest, a complete wash

We went 14-4. We were 6 inches on the last play of the last regular season game from hosting the NFC Championship.

We have a HOF QB, a superstar WR, a stud RB, and a potentially HOF-level LT all under contract for next year. 

We have two edge rushers that were dominant pass rushers back next year. 

We have good, young players at DB. Jaire Alexander and Savage are both potential Pro Bowlers. Amos was a great pickup. King was frustrating at times, but he's better than every single DB the Packers had the last time they were in the NFC championship game. 

The only significant free agents to worry about are Bulaga, Tramon, Blake Martinez, and Mason Crosby.

We lost in the NFC title game. 

We probably have only one other WR worth bringing back  (Lazard). 

We need an upgrade at ILB. 

We need development at the TE position. 

 

The summary is that the hardest positions to find impact players at are QB, WR, RB, CB, LT, and edge rusher. We have all those covered. We are in better shape than probably 29-30 teams for next year.

The season was definitely a pleasant surprise.  I knew they were an improved team but never anticipated a 13-3 regular season.  They clearly have some holes left to fill, and they may very well have a slight dip in their record yet still be a better team in 2020.  Schedule will be tougher and it would be unlikely that they have as few injuries as they did this year.

Littleton, Robbie Anderson/AJ Green and Austin Hooper/Hunter Henry...win the super bowl

It's gonna take a bigger boat than that. 

Hate to bag on the coaching staff, I've been supportive all year.  But they didn't show me they learned much since Nov. when it comes to beating SF.  I got the sense today that if rosters were equal, Shanahan and Saleh would still win.  There were too many plays on D where SF ran an end around or jet to one side and there were maybe 2 Packers on that 1/3 of the field.  Deebo Samuel will take those numbers on every down.  In fact, SF ran that same play twice within 5 or 6 snaps.  Just a small sample and it's late but on D Shanahan too often seemed a step ahead of Pettine.
