Packers widescreen player Marquez Valdes-Scantling battled a second overtime game against the Colts on Sunday. Indianapolis Security Julian Blackmon has recovered. Green Bay lost 34-31 after Rodrigo Blankenship scored the winning field goal.
Valdes-Scantling took the blame and he replied with a tweet that could serve his team well for the rest of the regular season.
Thank God. Without failure, there is no growth.

It was a rare burst of responsibility on the platform that rushed to condemn the receiver for the collapse of the second half of Green Bay.
The Packers fell to 7-3 and missed a three-game lead over NFC North. They are no longer in the top position in the NFC playoffs.
Valdes-Scantling was a light scapegoat. The feeling spilled over into coach Matt LaFleur’s post-season press conference when he was asked about Valdes-Scantling, which is more like Twitter.
Reporter: “You see, I hate to be honest, but how can you live with MVS?”

What is the question? Valdes-Scantling’s predicament was the last mistake of the day when the Packers made more than enough mistakes to get around when they won the 28-14 quarter. Green Bay have to fight that against Sunday Night Football against rival Chicago in week 12. For what it’s worth, Aaron Rodgers then defended by Valdes-Scantling.

This is a smaller version of what unfolded after Brandon Bostick knocked the ball forward. Loss of the NFC championship to the Seahawks in January 2015. That mistake limited the decline in the fourth quarter, which prevented Rodgers from reaching the Super Bowl for the second time. Bostick was later threatened with death, but the same conclusion can be drawn:
Bostick did not lose the game. MVS did not lose the game. The Packers did both times.
Green Bay held six game matches in the third quarter on Sunday. Indy accumulated 25 plays for 125 yards on this stretch and dominated at the time of the conquest. Colts defender Philip Rivers finished 24 of 36 for 288 yards, making three passes and taking over the ball. Packers defense coordinator Mike Pettine was also popular on Twitter.
Darrius Shepherdas shocked in the fourth half with a shot that led the Indianapolis team to the lead. Rodgers missed Jamaican Williams in the fourth and one pass, which could have been a run. The Packers had a chance to win in the final round of the game, when the Colts served four penalties for a possible end to the game.
Mason Crosby’s equalizer in the final seconds of adjustment will not materialize if Valdes-Scantling misses 47 yards from Green Bay 6’s third and 10th.
Yes, distraction was expensive. No, Valdes-Scantling is not the biggest issue for the Packers right now. Not even like that.
The defense is still suspected, the attack was missed in two-thirds in the third quarter, and special teams need to improve. If these issues are not resolved, then Green Bay will re-enter the playoffs.
The defeat could later chase the team in the sense of the playoffs, but a healthy attack coincides with the best NFC. Valdes-Scantling will be one of the keys to Green Bay proving to be a Super Bowl contender.
If that doesn’t happen, then the blame will be normal out of place. He always belongs to Rodgers, even if he should also belong to the Packers organization.
Green Bay decided not to trade on another receiver at the set time, and Valdes-Scantling had nine catches in the last three Green Bay matches for 257 yards and three TDs. He vertically complements Davante Adams and Allen Lazard, the latter of whom returned this week.
Unlike Bostick’s deception in an NFC championship game, Valdes-Scantling’s chatter is not the end of the season. In fact, judging by how the receiver handled it, it could be the moment that excites Green Bay for the next six weeks. Judging by how Aaron Jones comforted Valdes-Scantling aside, this message is sent.
“Without failure, there is no growth.”
Yes, Valdes-Scantling said it best.
For packers, these can be words to learn from.
