Packers continue to struggle at home in postseason

For the second straight year, the Packers have lost at Lambeau Field in the playoffs after earning the No. 1 seed. It continues a troubling 20-year trend of home playoff losses for a team that was once unbeatable in the playoffs on the frozen tundra.

From 1939 through 2001, the Packers went 14-0 at home in the postseason. Since 2002, when they lost to Mike Vick and the Falcons in the wild-card round, the Packers are 7-7 at Lambeau Field in the postseason.

They’ve now lost two in a row at home in the playoffs, falling the Bucs last year in the NFC Championship and the 49ers this year in the divisional round. If Aaron Rodgers won’t be returning for 2022, they may not have to worry about falling to 7-8 at home for a while.

  1. Let us be honest the great Aaron Rodgers is a postseason choker with the exception of one lucky year.

  2. Is it time for a new GM and coach. This game was not on Rodgers per se. But personnel and play calling are on GM and coach. Total choke job.

  3. Love Love LOVE IT. Couldn’t care less about either team but ARod is a tool so if he’s out, I’m ALL IN.

  4. For the love of God Green Bay, just put up a dome or a retractable roof. Your ‘Lambeau Mystique’ / ‘Frozen Tundra’ advantage is dead. It’s been dead for 15-20 years. If you had a dome, betwene Favre and Rodgers you might have won 10 Superbowls. Green Bay for 30 years has been a pretty passing team, not a tough running football team that’s designed to play in the elements. Every #1 seed takes you further away from a championship. It’s a joke.

  5. By Packers, the correct way to say it is Rodgers. The defense played outstanding. The offense put up a whole seven points the entire night.

  6. Things have to change. Aaron struggles, he leaves. If they get worse before they get batter, so be it. Sorry they banned our favorite son.

  7. Packers get six wins a year by playing garbage teams in their weak division. The NFC West is that beat division in football, and the 49ers are the toughest team in that division. This wasn’t an upset, it was a better team beating a media pumped up inferior team.

  8. And, like the Saints from the last four years, the Packers suffer another heartbreaking ending.

  9. Maybe it has something to do with trying to run a pass happy offense in 10 degree night games in Green Bay.

  10. Rodgers is a choke artist. He will not throw a pass that has risk to it, unless it is a deep ball on 3rd and long. The defense will take the blame, but you have to score more than 10 points to win a a playoff game.

  11. Aaron Rodgers has probably had enough and will move on from Packers. Once he leaves, Lafleur will be fully exposed & won’t be Packers coach after about 2 more seasons…

  12. No excuses for that loss. You have to fire the coach.
    You played a team with no qb and lost.

    Inexcusable.

    49ers will get smoked next.

  13. Biggest chokers in the history of sports. Zero accountability. Zero ownership. Literally.

    Pathetic organization.

  14. That was a pretty dreadful loss. One great drive and then nothing. They should have run the ball a lot more, without a doubt – they gave San Fran way too much time with the ball.

    Still don’t understand how they managed to get a punt blocked.

  15. Matt Lafluer didn’t come in with a game plan cause he thought Aaron Rodgers was his game plan. Tis a shame, right after they changed the covid testing rules so they can ensure he played in the super bowl should be get there.

  16. Maybe if Rodgers was preparing with his teammates instead of tweeting at biden he would have played better. Nah

  17. I am beginning to think that having a bye is not an advantage. Both the Titans and Packers struggled offensively. No momentum what so ever.

  18. Hats off to you Roger’s I see what you where trying to tell everyone this whole time. The SMART ones will get it! As for the rest some explaining will need to happen.

  19. Flat track bullies. The Packers have 3 great players on O and a couple of good O Linemen. The D isn’t bad overall especially the front 7. Special Teams are a joke considering they’ve been targeting special teamers in the draft for years. It’s a really poorly constructed squad and one which is carried by having a couple of mega stars.

  20. Rodgers is the reason they don’t win in the playoffs as Rodgers himself comes up small in all those losing playoff efforts when he should be putting the team on his back. Can’t see another team breaking the bank only to lose in the first round of the playoffs with Rodgers routine disappearing act.

  21. The Packers just don’t have enough play makers in the passing game. If teams can limit the amount of touches Adams gets, Rodgers’ job becomes even more difficult. After Adams and Jones, they don’t have any guys who can step up and make plays consistently. Credit the 49ers defense. They played tough all night, especially when they were thin on the back end.

  22. The Packers just don’t have enough play makers in the passing game.
    ===========

    Adams did most of the heavy lifting, no doubt about it. But they always had someone else step up consistently.

    Outside of the scramble drill to Jones at the half, that didn’t happen last night.

  23. Just an awful venue with crowd noise from fans who don’t understand when to get loud. How many times does LaFleur have to raise his arms to ask the fans to cheer?

  24. classy 49er players refused to taunt packer fans by telling them they own them…even though they do

  25. The Packers “Brandon Staley”‘d themselves on that last drive. They called 2 time outs near the end of the drive to get the ball back for Aaron when the 49ers were clearly willing to let the clock run down if they didn’t get in FG range so the Packers didn’t get the ball back in regulation.

    If those 2 Time outs by the Pack weren’t called, the 49ers are either kicking a 60 yard FG as time expires or kneeling for OT.

  26. That was a pretty dreadful loss. One great drive and then nothing. They should have run the ball a lot more, without a doubt – they gave San Fran way too much time with the ball.
    ==========

    Dillons loss was huge. Perfect recipe for him last night.

    Jones wasn’t getting the tough yards late. Dillon most likely would have, or at least gave them a better chance.

  27. The bottom line is the better team won. They Packers rely on Rodgers to win the games. There are usually 1 or 2 teams of the final 4 that are better than Green Bay. Those defenses can figure Rodgers out.

    All the cold weather does is keep it closer than it should be. If they were played on the other teams home field the Packers would probably lose by 10-14 points. Packers never have the more physical hit you in the mouth defense like some of these others like Tampa last year and San Fran this year.

    The Packers always seem to shoot themselves in the foot also either with special teams or turnovers in big games. At least it gives the GB fan base something to cheer for in the regular season with 12+ wins each year.

  28. This is 100% on Rodgers. Need to throw to receivers other than Adams. Niners ended up just doubling him and playing the run.

  29. This is all on Rodgers. Even with the special teams errors, SF scored 13 points – 13! This is the best defense the Packers have had since 2010 and Dillon and Jones give them a great running game. Rodgers looked uninterested, time for him to go. If your the supposed MVP you need to carry your team in these games.

    I can’t blame this on Rodgers, he played well.
    ////////
    You might want to look at the numbers again. 0 TD’s from that guy.

    Is it safe to say when the Packers only get two receptions for six yards from any player other than Adams and Jones in the biggest game of their season, they don’t have have enough play makers in the passing game? That’s NOT consistently.

  32. Can’t remember seeing a better game……oh yeah last years BFC Championship game….haha!
