"They took him out (of the previous drive) for a play and he slammed his helmet and threw a fit", one Packers player told NFL.com.
Montgomery said he was frustrated when he returned to the sidelines on the last drive, but also said that "did not impact his decision the bring the kickoff out of the end zone". "Then (before the kickoff) they told him to take a knee, and he ran it out anyway".
"Aaron was hot", one Packers coach told Silver. You know what that was?
"That play didn't lose the game, but it took away an opportunity to win", Rodgers said.
The question now appears to be, do you cut Ty Montgomery or do you just bench him? That was him saying, 'I'm gonna do me.' It's a f-ing joke. You don't want to have the timeout distribution there at the end, to be at 2:05, I mean, that's exactly what we're looking for. "We got the win, so that's all that matters". I mean, it's "12"!
Twins hiring Rocco Baldelli as manager
He will replace Paul Molitor , who was 305-343 in four seasons as manager with one playoff appearance. Before that, he was their third-base coach for three years.
The fourth-year running back finished with just six yards on two carries.
Rodgers didn't hide his disappointment at the way the game played out, both in a lack of aggressiveness and the game-killing fumble.
But fantasy owners, as well as people who had some money on the game (the Rams were giving 7 to 7.5 to the Packers and could have covered with the TD), were hoping for a different outcome. During that time, the Packers only scored 10 points.
"The urgency has to pick up, but there's no momentum gained from a loss", Rodgers said.
Handing the Rams their first loss of 2018 would have been huge for the Packers when looking at some of the hard games this team has already dealt with so far, but also shows they do deserve to be considered a strong contender in the NFC. Coach Mike McCarthy said Montgomery was instructed to down the ball if it went into the end zone. "I'm still in shock". The veteran defensive back caught a pass from Johnny Hekker on a fake punt, and he later downed a punt at the Green Bay 1 to set up the Rams' defense for its safety. Will he get any discipline?
