Don't mind my sniffles; it's probably just the ragweed.

The Packers' offense stunk on Sunday, and there are no shortage of explanations and people providing them. Among them are the team's head coach and quarterback, who both have differing views on the root cause of the issues against the Lions.

Still, there's good being done off the field; even if the performances on it aren't up to normal standards, the time a certain Packer is spending in the community and helping out a great cause helps remind us a bit about what's important outside of football.

Vic says that the Packers "failed in their attempt to run the football", but I question why that was the focus of Sunday's gameplan in the first place against a battered Lions secondary.

Here's more on the frustration. One guy is saying that the team didn't adjust, and the other is saying the players didn't execute. This is probably some of the most drama between playcaller and quarterback that we've seen in Green Bay in some time.

I do think this is one of the major issues on this offense - not having an interior weapon who can attack the seam. Richard Rodgers just isn't there yet. Hopefully Brandon Bostick's struggles on special teams can get ironed out so he can contribute on offense again soon.

There still has been no move to bring the roster back up to 53 players after Andy Mulumba was placed on IR. Perhaps this rookie free agent offensive lineman might be an option?

This is fun...until you realize that they use Jabba the Hutt in place of the Packers' G. I guess that's what happens when you're known for fatty foods and beer?

Finally, we turn our gaze away from the on-field issues to good work off the field.

It's awesome to see Aaron doing this great stuff for the community and for a great cause like the MACC Fund. Don't mind me sniffling over here, I think it's the ragweed.
