Packers fans are fed up with their defensive coordinator
The Green Bay Packers defense had expectations coming into this season. The Packers’ defense hasn’t lived up to them through their first five games. Rumors were already floating around before the Packers’ loss to the New York Giants Sunday that their defensive coordinator, Joe Barry, might be on the hot seat. Sunday’s loss in London did nothing to pacify those rumors. Packers fans are growing restless.
Barry’s defense helped the Packers blow a 14-point lead against the Giants. The Giants aren’t known as an offensive juggernaut, and their starting quarterback Daniel Jones was noticeably limited in action as he was playing banged up in Week 5.
Following the game, Packers fans were pretty vocal about what they thought about the defense. “Fire Barry” was trending on Twitter not long after the Giants were celebrating their victory in London. Packers fans on Twitter are blaming Barry for the underperforming defense. And most of the posters want the second-year defensive coordinator gone from the Green Bay sideline. Here are some of the best tweets:

Packers defensive coordinator Joe Barry is the biggest clown in the nfl. You literally have 2 shutdown corners and you play zone instead of man. @packers need to fire this guy.

Wow. Green Bay has to make changes. You cannot give up 27 points to the Giants. They also cannot get shutout in the second half. If they don't fire Joe Barry & call OBJ, they are doing a major disservice to their fans and their team. #GoPackGo.
