GREEN BAY - The Packers offense had been rolling, that wasn't the case against the Jaguars as they were limited to 238 total yards.
"The expectations were we were going to come and blow them out," Aaron Rodgers said. "We didn't start fast we didn't have enough juice."
As a number of players pointed out in the locker room, Rodgers gave credit to the Jaguars defense.
"They played their scheme pretty well they brought pressure maybe twice all game. They did a good job stopping the run and they put enough guys in coverage to slow us down."
After the game, guard T.J. Lang appeared a little disheartened with the offenses inability to produce.
"A lack of execution on a lot of plays, offensively we didn't convert on many 3rd downs, you gotta make those plays to keep the drives going," said Lang.
To Lang's point the Packers were just 5 of 13 on the 3rd down conversions. The numbers were no prettier for the run game which managed just 66 yards on 26 attempts.
Running back Alex Green got 22 of those carries and accounted for 54 of those yards. Green remained positive that they can produce in the running phase of the game but there's a sense of urgency to perform.
"I got to do a better job of taking advantage of the opportunities that's there," Green said. "There's holes there I just gotta hit the hole hard, get down hill and get the positive yards."
Mike McCarthy liked the play calling mix but not the output.
"We came in here looking to be more balanced run pass and statistically we hit that but the efficiency was not there."
With players like Jordy Nelson and Greg Jennings in sweats on the sidelines, players like Randall Cobb were dealing with a heavier burden.
Cobb saw a different coverage Sunday than he had with Nelson and Jennings in the lineup.
"When we have all our guys out there it creates different matchups out there," said Cobb. "We didn't get the matchups we'd been getting in the past couple weeks so it made it a little bit tougher."
"The next guys just got to step up," Donald Driver said. "Today everybody stepped up and we won the game. It wasn't great but we won." Thanks in no small part to a pair of catches by Driver that went for a touchdown.
As many improvements as the Packers would like to make this week, Aaron Rodgers kept everything in perspective saying, it's a lot easier to watch film after an ugly win than after a loss.
