For the most part, Los Angeles hasn't really struggled to put up points this season when looking at all of the weapons Jared Goff has to work with on offense, which is why it was so surprising to see the team still without a point in the middle of the second quarter against Green Bay.
But when the kick came, Montgomery fielded it a couple of yards in the end zone - and brought it out.
Montgomery's decision to ignore the coach's instructions could be connected to how he felt about getting taken out of Green Bay's previous series, according to one of the players who spoke to Silver.
It turns out, Montgomery had thrown a tantrum on the sideline shortly before making this dipshit move.
"They took him out for a play and he slammed his helmet and threw a fit", the player said. Instead of taking a knee like he was reportedly told to do, he ran it out - fumbling the ball and the game away. You know what that was? As far as the drama and non-sense about it, I have nothing to say.
"I mean, what the (expletive) are you doing?" A win for Aaron Rodgers and Co. would make a statement to the league and the NFC that the Packers still are a contender to take seriously. "All you gotta do is give him the ball, and you know what's gonna happen". As if his two rushes for six yards and one catch for two yards was enough to stay in the game over a player like Aaron Jones.
Rodgers didn't hide his disappointment at the way the game played out, both in a lack of aggressiveness and the game-killing fumble.
"Man, forget fantasy and forget Vegas", Gurley said after the game via ESPN.
"And then to have it end the way it did", Rodgers said. In the next three weeks, they play the New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks, and the Kansas City Chiefs and we should have a real good understanding how good this team actually is.
As if his late game blunder wasn't bad enough, it turns out Montgomery was going against the coaches' wishes by taking the ball out of the end zone. "I'm still in shock". Is cutting him on the table?
