Packers wasting timeouts far more than most teams

Good clock management can be the difference between winning and losing a game, but trying to quantify “good clock management” isn’t always easy. By at least one metric, however, the Packers are managing the clock worse than any team in the NFL.

That metric is wasted timeouts.

Whether a timeout was used properly or wasted is to some extent subjective, but suffice to say that the smart time to use a timeout is late in the second or fourth quarter, when you need to stop the clock while trying to score before halftime or the end of the game. The dumb time to use a timeout is early in the half, when you’re trying to prevent a delay of game penalty, get the right personnel on the field or take some extra time to call a play. If you use a timeout in that situation, that means your team wasted a valuable resource — a timeout — because it wasn’t prepared.

Paul Noonan of AcmePackingCompany.com defined wasted timeouts as those used before the two-minute warning in the first half, and before the final five minutes of the second half. And by that measurement, the Packers lead the league, with 14 wasted timeouts so far this season.

Wasting timeouts turned out to be incredibly costly in the Packers’ tie game against the Vikings. On the Packers’ very first drive of the game, while lining up for a third-and-17, they called timeout to avoid a delay of game penalty. Third-and-17 and third-and-22 are both extreme long shot plays, so wasting a timeout to save five yards in that situation was foolish. (After the timeout the Packers gained four yards and punted.) Sure enough, at the end of the first half, the Packers kicked a field goal on first down, inside the red zone, because they were out of time. An extra timeout might have given the Packers enough time to score a touchdown. And in the second half, the Packers again wasted a timeout to avoid a delay of game penalty on their first drive. They would later waste another timeout to avoid a delay of game in the fourth quarter. The fourth quarter ended with the Packers missing a 52-yard game-winning field goal attempt. Two more timeouts would have given the Packers more time to get closer and would have increased their chances of making that game-winning field goal.

You might think you could go through any team’s season and find such examples of wasted timeouts, but the reality is you can’t: The Packers wasted more timeouts in that one game against the Vikings, a game when missing timeouts proved very costly, than some teams have wasted all season.

The teams that have done the best job of conserving timeouts until they need them are the Eagles, Colts and Jaguars, each of which have used only two timeouts before the last two minutes of the first half or last five minutes of the second half this season. It’s unsurprising that Eagles coach Doug Pederson doesn’t waste many timeouts, as he has proven himself again and again to be ahead of the rest of the league in understanding in-game strategy. It’s also unsurprising that Colts coach Frank Reich, who was Pederson’s offensive coordinator in Philadelphia last year, is following Pederson’s lead.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy would be wise, with his team on its bye this week, to do some self-scouting about why his team is wasting its timeouts.

  1. NFL has finally noticed the amount of whining in GB, McCarthy hasn’t realized this yet and keeps thinking they will chose him over the obvious correct call. Unlike the past

  2. That’s surprising. Especially considering that their QB is so “me first” that he wanted to try to throw a TD with six seconds left, against the 49ers, rather than just bringing out the kicking squad to guarantee the victory.

  3. are they wasting time outs? yeah probably… but trying to turn this into a stat screams desperation.

    Taking a timeout prior to a 3rd and long is stupid because ‘they are extreme long shot plays?’. Yeah you’re right… maybe they should’ve just punted on third down and saved the time out.

    Give me a break.

    He’s the Head Coach. Shouldn’t he already know?

  5. McCarthy must of went to the Andy Reid school of clock management.

    And this isn’t to knock Andy because he is a hell of a coach. Probably one of the best coach to never win a Superbowl and better than quit a few who have won a Superbowl…..like Mike McCarthy……but man the guy was terrible at clock management. Not as bad as his Philly days though.

  6. McCarthy has always been terrible with time clock management and using timeouts. I don’t think a little extra time spent on the bye week will somehow change that. And I am a McCarthy defender.

  7. When it’s bye week and you seriously have nothing remotely negative to post about the Packers to generate clicks, so you grasp at literally nothing in hope of accomplishing your clickbait quota…and you succeed.

  8. Under McCarthy The Packers are the worst end-of-half, end-of-game team in the NFL. That’s how we owned them in the Harbaugh Era. Harbaugh used that to his full advantage.

    Oh, and to all those that said Harbaugh was overrated. I told you all TTUN had a bad season because of their incomplete 2015 recruiting class. How do y’all haters like Harbaugh now?

  9. Meanwhile if you want to make money bet your life savings on the chargers in london. What a horrible game for the english people to have to attend. We cant score at home much less overseas. 40-3 chargers. Enjoy the free loot people.

  11. The thing that is really stupid is teams who are trailing by 2 scores ending the game with timeouts left. I’ve seen teams do that and it’s really dumb.

  14. This is all on H.C. Graveyhead and not a surprising statistic at all. This team has looked in complete disarray and has not looked ready to play until their backs are against the wall, and AR pulls one out and saves the day.

  15. This is nothing new, really. Unless Rodgers is trying to catch the other team with too many men on the field, they’ve always used as much time as possible to snap the ball. It seems like they’re always running the play clock down to the last few seconds.

  16. Packers coach Mike McCarthy would be wise, with his team on its bye this week, to do some self-scouting about why his team is wasting its timeouts.

    Big Mike’s only self-scouting is that he is a highly successful coach and it stops right there.

    ————————————————————————————

    The point is that the chance of converting a 3rd and 17 is already pretty remote, so taking a timeout in that situation isn’t going to help much. So did they spend time on the sidelines drawing up a complex play to throw a 3 yard dump off to a RB?

  20. I believe that they also lead the league in delay of game penalties.

    A lot of these time outs are called by Rodgers, not McCarthy, to avoid the delay. And getting a delay penalty is the responsibility of the quarterback, as well.

    Aaron Rodgers is a great player, but let’s not make him bulletproof. Delay of game penalties and wasted time outs are at least in large part on him.

  21. Take the 5-yard delay and stop wasting time outs unless it’s third and 29! Chances are you won’t get the first down anyway!

    Its both interesting that you think that and even more interesting that you choose to mention that after what Rodgers and McCarthy just did to the 49ers. I’d say they were pretty successful at the end of that game. I do think McCarthy fails to put teams away late in games but Rodgers is deadly with a chance to win on a final drive. How many times have we seen teams score to lead the Packers late in a game and we look at the clock and say 39 seconds – yeah, they left too much time on the clock for Aaron Rodgers.

  28. The Packers waste timeouts on cheap tricks, like lining up on a 4th and 2, trying to draw teams offsides.

  29. 4. Aaron Rodger 123-72-2, .629 winning percentage,

    Rodgers has missed many games over the last few seasons… his record is better than McCarthy’s. So you didn’t fix anything

    Dumbass!!! They were not trying for a TD. They were wasting a couple more seconds so the FG would be the last play and they would not have to kick off. That is why he took 2 steps back and launched the ball in the stands never even looking for a reciever!!!!

  32. Mike Martz used to burn them like they were free ice cream. I look at that as overall confidence in your offensive scheme and defense, to get the job done when need be. I also believe Mike Martz used to take Play Clock Expiration penalties to see what the defense was calling and gain more space to make plays. Just the thoughts of a playground dad.

    “Its both interesting that you think that and even more interesting that you choose to mention that after what Rodgers and McCarthy just did to the 49ers. “

    ——————————————————————————————-
    49ers had a backup QB, and the moment was too big for him. Had nothing to do with McCarthy.

    49ers possessed the ball 3 times in the final 7 minutes of the game. Packers exhausted all of the their timeouts and we didn’t even force them to use their timeouts.

    The 49ers had every chance to win that game the way McCarthy misused timeouts and mismanaged the game…CJ Beathard just didn’t see a wide open Fullback on 2nd and 3; and wide open TE on 3rd and 3 and threw a interception on the 49ers final drive.

    Aaron Rodgers is simply a Hall of game QB that took advantage of the numerous opportunities given to him by the 49ers, had nothing to do with McCarthy.

    If we had Harbaugh and Kap it would have been an easy 49er win. Actually if we still had Harbaugh and Kap, Mike McCarthy would probably be coaching another team right now. They were running him out of Green Bay.

  35. As a Viking fan, I don’t mind seeing someone pointing out Packer faults, but this is stretching things, don’t ya think? Defining “wasted” timeouts is a little more complicated than what is represented here. There are so many factors to consider. If we are going down this road, we also need to talk about wasted opportunities for timeouts…not taking one to “save” it and putting your team in a bad play call or wrong protection scheme. Or, using timeouts improperly in the last two minutes of a half, which by the above definition, would not be considered “wasted.”

    I think there are a lot more meaningful stats to discuss than this vague and ill-defined example. Let’s talk about real football instead of fabricated “stats.”

    SKOL!

  36. The play always seems slow getting in to me. That is on McCarthy. They aren’t far off from being a very good team, they just have to get it cleaned up. It needs to happen fast. The blown game against Detroit and the stolen victory against Minnesota may doom them.

  37. Wasting is a Packer staple – timeouts, Favre’s career, Rodgers’ career, $250 on a piece of paper, $30 more for a copy and a frame, etc, etc, etc.

  38. The Seahawks and Wilson seem to do this more than most. 2nd and 15 after a penalty, call a timeout, then run it for 2 yards. It’s like, ‘come on guys!’ Be a little more prepared and just audible to that worthless play and save your 2nd half timeouts.

  39. Sure the Packers may be wasting timeouts far more than most teams. But what’s even worse is the Packers wasting more Hall of Fame quarterback play than most teams. 26 straight years with HOF’ers Favre and Rodgers and the best they could do is one Super Bowl win for each? That’s a crime.

  40. Not always the coaches fault. We waste a lot of time dancing behind the line of scrimmage. Line up, block the man in front of you and create a hole. Really can be a simple game at times. As far as the timeouts go, the silver lining is that usually Rodgers comes out of the break and delivers….

  41. I’m not satisfied with MM at this time, but Rodgers is usually the one calling those early time outs. I’m also curious to know if this stat takes into account lost challenges. That’s a pretty big rabbit hole to go down if you’re trying to grade clock management just by time outs.

  42. Heres my thought. Rodgers in his mind insist on knowing where the pass rush s coming from – note buried byvikes lots of pain. Note buries by whomever lots of pain. He is more worried about his health then the dam game. Wasted time outs are because he is worried very worried player.

  43. I agree with m zimmer. Any time you waste a time out on offense its wasted. He savees and they practice getting theball inplay on offense saving time outs to score at the end of the half and game

  44. Hot take: change the rules of when you can use a timeout. No timeouts before 4 minutes left in a half. If your team is unprepared or has too many men on the field or whatever, too bad. Be better prepared. Get rid of the stupid “coach challenge”. If the call was questionable, it automatically gets looked at, and no timeouts are lost due to a terrible challenge. This would prevent idiot coaches from shooting themselves in the foot, and they all do it every game.

    ——————————————————————————
    Your premise was that “Under McCarthy, the Packers are the worst end of game team in the NFL”. I simply pointed out that Under McCarthy, Rodgers scored 10 points in the final 3 minutes including an 80 yard drive in the final minute with no timeouts to win the game. Oh, and the backup quarterback did not play defense at all there in those last 3 minutes.

  46. They are really playing with fire, related to this statistic. Many times Rodgers pulls off miracle to avoid the coach being shamed for this burning of valuable time outs. It is amazing that the same teams seem to be addicted to burning time outs due to the inability to get things organized before the snap.

  47. I have always been of the opinion that the Pack’s two HOF QBs disguised MM’s lack of quality offensive scheme/play calling, but never considered that they also had to make up for his inadequate time management. Quite frankly, that makes the winning percentage and SB win so proudly touted by the cheesers above even more impressive.

    There’s nothing wrong with being proud of the teams’ accomplishments but at the same time being greedy and realistic enough to daydream about what could have been — most Vikings fans have such daydreams every time there is an important playoff FG attempt.

  48. The team with more timeouts in the last five minutes of the game always wins, in my mind at least. That said, using timeouts before the two minute warning in the first half is not ALWAYS bad. It would be better to have them on hand for the two minute drill, but as we’ve seen in the fourth quarter, run heavy teams can decimate a clock and occasionally you want your offense to control the ball for a good bit of the half. Say, for instance, that you’re playing Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady or Drew Brees and are intentionally running the clock to keep them off the field. Using timeouts to get the ball back before the two minute warning at the end of the half is not wasting them any more than using them before two minute warning at the end of the game. If a score and time of possession is what you need, timeouts are not necessarily wasted.

    That said, the Packers are a mess too much of the time. McCarthy would rather get the play right than run a bad one, and the mixed results from the offense contribute to his (and Rodgers’) overuse of timeouts.

  49. The memories and reality of past Packer successes, is the dreams and fantasy of a Viking fan. It’s true.

    That’s why they’re so easy to rile up.

  50. McCarthy is an awful clock manager. But this constant snapping of the ball with a half second left on the game clock is really getting annoying, especially as we are always coming from behind

  51. Aaron Rodgers hasn’t been able to get a week of full practices in since his injury. This is causing miscommunication with this receivers, bad timing, lack of chemistry, and excessive usage of time outs. These problems will not stop until Rodgers can get a few good weeks of full practices in.

  52. McCarthy has to call in his Applebees curbside to go order for after the game, and ask Rodgers if he wants something off the kids menu!!

  53. Good luck convincing the fanbase the ill-timing of stopping the clock.

    It should fall on deaf ears. Nobody cares but haters. Personally, I don’t care if the Packers ever win anything substantive ever again. As a fan, they’ve given me more than my fair share. Sure, I’d like to see them win, but if they don’t…….no big deal. That game last Monday, in-person, was fun, fun, fun. I’m fine as-is.

    I guess it must’ve been the coaching, in that case.

  57. 12 of the 14 “wasted timeouts” the article is referring to were taken in the first half before the 2 minute warning.

    Sorry if no one is overly concerned about burning a couple timeouts in the first halves of games. Use them or lose them when you go in at halftime.

    Something to actually focus on is how much this offense can expand after the bye, now that Aaron will be as close to 100% as he has been since before the Bears game week 1. The offense has been handcuffed by his injury. There is no debate on that. Joe Philbin said “a conservative approach until Doc gives the full ok on Aaron’s knee”. The ok from Doc McKenzie to take the brace off will mean that the latest image of the knee that Doc McKenzie has looked at shows the injury is healed. That will also be the ok to open this offense up like Joe Philbin stated it has not been yet because of “pulling back” over a injured QB. Joe gives much more info on the offense than the tight lipped McCarthy.

    People wonder why McCarthy hasn’t played Aaron Jones more. Because he was worried about his pass protection with Aaron being injured. That is just one example of many ways the offense can now expand.

    The defense: If you review the games(I watch them all twice or three times. Even the losses. I like torture😉)and look at the numbers, the defense has been not good in the first half and very good in the 2nd half of games. I know many here have said the defense was “horrible the whole San Fran game” Not true. First half yes. Second half the defense was very good and the reason the offense was able to be on the field to stage the comeback.

    Mike Pettine during this bye week needs to figure out why his D is starting games flat and get it fixed. I am very high on this defense and surmise that the growing pains we are seeing in the first half of games is due to inexperience in the system and can only improve in the final 10 games.

    The Packs needs to go 7-3 the rest of the way. That will assure 10 wins, a playoff spot and the division title. Trust me when I say that the Lions, Vikings, or Bears are not winning more than 10 games.

    Everyone is talking about the next 5 games. Yes it is a tough stretch of games and 4 are on the road. Of course I would like to go 5-0 the next five, but more realistically they will be right on track for 10 wins by going 3-2 the next five games.

  58. “Everyone is talking about the next 5 games. Yes it is a tough stretch of games and 4 are on the road. Of course I would like to go 5-0 the next five, but more realistically they will be right on track for 10 wins by going 3-2 the next five games.”

    I am a die hard Packers fan. since 1960, but come on. If they win even one of the next 5 games it will be a mild surprise. More than one win would be a big surprise.

    McCarthy is a poor coach – pretty dumb but stubbornly thinks he is “highly successful”, the team isn’t very good either. Murphy would’ve been far better off by addressing the real problem, then keeping the other coaches and getting rid of McCarthy. Without Rodgers this is one of the handful of worst teams in the league. Wish it wasn’t true, but it is.

  59. Green Bay will be lucky to escape the next five games with a 2-3 record, but I see more positives than some with how their season is going.

    I expected this year to be a rebuild season as the money tied up n Cobb and Matthews – marginally productive vets at high end payroll slots – coupled with the mostly terrible last three drafts before Gute *Blake and Kenny excepted* dictated as much.

    Adams, Allison, and Scantling Valdes look like a solid group to me, and that St. Brown has made plays with the clock ticking down to the gun bodes well. Throw in Kumerow and possibly Moore makes a jump….in any event they got a near stud in Adams, and the rest are cheap.

    I also think if the Packers can get their ideal secondary (Williams, Alexander, King, Dix, Brice on the field for a few games in a row, they will surprise some folks. Jackson has been kind of invisible and I wish they could give a timetable on Breeland).

    I hold out hope the Packers can sneak into a playoff spot so all the youngsters can at lest get the feel for what the postseason is like. Feels like 9-6-1 could make that happen. But Green Bay doesn’t have enough high end talent to hope for more. Oh yeah, one game soon McCarthy better give Aaron Jones 20 touches. He is ready.

    People can say what they say about McCarthy, but his teams normally play well in November and December.

  60. Packer fans named “Best in NFL” earlier this week. Again. It must have something to do with the consecutive home sell-outs since 1959 and the thirty-year waiting list for season tickets.

    …..but that’s just a guess.

  61. As “bad” as the Packers are (as described by Packer-hating Viking trolls,) their one-legged offense is ranked #4 and their bend-but-don’t-break defense is ranked #7. Granted, their defense isn’t “vaunted,” (most aren’t,) but it’s good enough…….so far.

    How do those same trolls substantiate the lower ranking in all categories and the need to play catch-up with the Packers, if the Packers are so bad? That’s a mystery only they can answer.

    What’s the answer?

  62. People can say what they say about McCarthy, but his teams normally play well in November and December.
