PODCAST: Packers panic and Brewers buzz, with Andy Tarnoff

New year. New season. New stadium. New girlfriend. Same old result for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, as the Falcons handed Green Bay its first loss of the season, 34-23, down in Atlanta. And when you lose a game to last season's best team in the NFC and the almost Super Bowl champions, the only rational response is to call for everyone's firing. Mike McCarthy? Gone. Aaron Rodgers? Cut. Ted Thompson? Kicked to the curb. The refs? NOT EVEN ALLOWED TO PLAY A GAME OF MADDEN. Burn this team to the ground and salt the ashes; the 2017-18 Green Bay Packers are through.

But, in this episode of OnMilwaukee's Postgame Tailgate, what if we posit … no?

Sports editor Jimmy Carlton, pop culture editor Matt Mueller and special guest Andy Tarnoff, OnMilwaukee's publisher and co-founder, discuss the devastation from last night's prime-time pounding, how much fun it was to watch Mike McCarthy swear on the sidelines, how little fun it was to watch his offense and more.

But why let a bad Packers team ruin all the fun when there's a really good, playoff-hunting Brewers team to chat about? So we also talk about the Brewers' impressive 2017 season, why fans aren't seemingly jumping on the bandwagon and what we predict as far as the playoffs approach.
