There were plenty of reasons to be upset during the Packer’s Week 6 game against the New York Jets.
The dominoes kept falling from a limited increase in running plays, the defense’s inability to stop the run, and small but costly special teams’ mistakes.
But perhaps the most notable was how poor the offensive line performed throughout all four quarters. It seemed as though every play consisted of at least one defensive lineman or linebacker getting enough penetration to disrupt the play.
Well, that feeling has been confirmed with one of the most gut-wrenching montage videos you’ll ever see.
A full 40% of the Packer’s offensive plays (28 of 69) consisted of one of our linemen allowing a defender to penetrate, picking the wrong defender, double-teaming the wrong guy, not holding a block, or a false start.
This resulted in four sacks and just four of sixteen 3rd down conversions.
Just watch for yourself But, grab a puke bucket first!
As awful of an OL performance as you’ll ever see. A lot of blame to go around, but nobody is winning anything with that performance on OL. Beyond brutal. pic.twitter.com/HYUIYINbhO

Lafleur Blaims Offensive Line For Loss
In his interview Monday, Packers head coach Matt Lafleur laid the blame for Sunday’s loss squarely on the offensive line, stating;
“It really doesn’t matter what we do schematically, if we don’t block better, it’s hard to do anything. I think that was the No. 1 issue yesterday.”
Lafleur continued by pointing out OL mental errors that created negative plays. Specifically, Royce Newman’s decision on an adjusted protection that resulted in a sack.
Packers Making OL Moves
The Packers claimed offensive lineman Luke Tenuta off waivers from the Indianapolis Colts yesterday.
The 6’8″, 320-pound Virginia Tech alum was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the 6th round (29th overall) in the 2022 Draft. The Bills released him after 152 snaps in the preseason and allowed just one sack.
The next day he was picked up off waivers by the Indianapolis Colts.
