and a 2020 5th-rounder in the deal. Rapoport noted

Aaron Rodgers wasn't in much of a mood to celebrate his 35th birthday.Not after another loss for the sliding Green Bay Packers.The same problems keep popping up for the offense Womens Justin McCray Jersey , most glaringly, empty third downs and a lack of explosive plays.But Sunday's 20-17 home loss to the Arizona Cardinals was definitely a surprise. Coach Mike McCarthy was fired after Green Bay stumbled once again."We're just not executing well and it's the same things over and over," Rodgers said before the coaching change was announced.The loss to one of the NFL's worst teams was another blow to the fading playoff hopes for the Packers (4-7-1). Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin was promoted to interim head coach.It's still mathematically possible for Green Bay to catch NFC North-leading Chicago (8-4), which lost to the Giants.To do that though, a once-productive offense will have to find its way."We didn't play well today. I'm not going to sit up here and try to sugarcoat it," McCarthy said right after the loss.Green Bay's tough day helped the Cardinals shatter the image of Lambeau Field as an intimidating venue for a warm-weather team in wintry conditions. The temperature at kickoff was 34 degrees, but the wind chill made it feel like 23. Flurries fell on and off throughout the game.Instead, the Packers looked out of sorts.A couple of Rodgers' throws were off, especially in the first half. There were too many drops by receivers. The offensive line lost its two starters on the right side when guard Byron Bell and tackle Bryan Bulaga left in the first half with knee injuries.Zane Gonzalez kicked a 44-yard field goal for Arizona with 1:41 left. Green Bay's Mason Crosby missed a 49-yard attempt as time expired.Crosby pushed his kick wide right Lane Taylor Jersey White , with the flags atop Lambeau blowing in toward the field at the time of the play. In pregame warmups, Crosby said kicks were going right to left."Both ends were fairly difficult. The wind was swirling," Crosby said. The final attempt "wanted to go right, so I was pretty shocked about, and obviously disappointed."The Packers won the Super Bowl under McCarthy in 2010. But this is a third straight year in which Green Bay has had extended struggles.In 2016, the Packers started 4-6 but won eight straight games to get to the NFC title game, losing to the Atlanta Falcons. Green Bay finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs in 2017, when Rodgers missed extensive time with a broken collarbone.This year, Rodgers hurt his left knee in the season opener Tramon Williams Jersey , though he is feeling better now. Receivers Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison have missed time with injuries.Cobb's return on Sunday didn't help, with the Packers just 3 of 14 on third down."I hate to repeat myself, but it's applicable. ... We're not executing the right way," Rodgers said."It's poor throws, not on the same page with receivers, wrong depth, protection," he added. "We all have a part in that and we've all picked our time to mess up a third down."The opening play of the fourth quarter was a perfect example of Green Bay's offensive struggles. Rodgers found Cobb for a 36-yard completion on third-and-11, but the play was wiped out by a holding penalty on right tackle Jason Spriggs.Rodgers said his focus was getting his teammates to "play with that pride" and focus on the next four games."Yeah Paul Hornung Jersey White , I mean I'm not even thinking about that right now," Rodgers said when asked if he would have any role after the season with general manager Brian Gutekunst or team president Mark Murphy about what direction they should go with the coaching staff.The offensive players, Rodgers said, bear blame for whatever happens in the future."Yeah, a lot probably. We haven't played very well," he said. The NFL’s trade deadline is officially just hours away, and we have finally seen our first trade of the day reported. Keep your browsers locked here for any news about trades all across the NFL today.Trades must be submitted to the NFL’s offices by the end of the October 30th league day; that means that the deadline is 4:00 PM Eastern Time.Click here for some of our speculation on Packers players who could draw interest in the the next few hours and keep your refresh button going as we update this tracker throughout the afternoon.Confirmed ReportsBroncos trade WR Demaryius Thomas to TexansThe report comes from Ian Rapoport, who says that Thomas goes to Houston for a mid-round draft pick. This makes sense for Houston — they just saw Will Fuller go down with a torn ACL on Thursday, and Thomas gives them a good veteran presence opposite DeAndre Hopkins. Follow-up reporting puts the draft pick compensation as a fourth-round selection.Lions trade WR Golden Tate to EaglesIt’s “trade all the receivers day ,” apparently. Adam Schefter reports that Golden Tate is heading to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for a third-round draft pick. This leaves the Lions with essentially a two-man receiving corps consisting of Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay, while Tate will play in the slot in Philly with Alshon Jeffery likely flanking him.Packers trading RB Ty Montgomery to RavensGreen Bay has reportedly found a suitor for Montgomery - the Baltimore Ravens, according to Ian Rapoport. The Packers pick up a 2020 seventh-round draft pick in the deal.Jaguars trade DE Dante Fowler to RamsThis comes down to the wire at the deadline, as the Rams pick up some help on the edge to supplement their strong interior defensive line. (Adam Schefter had it first.) Tom Pelissero reports that the Rams will send next year’s 3rd-round draft pick and a 2020 5th-rounder in the deal. Rapoport noted that the Packers were one of a few teams who had been expressing interest in Fowler, but presumably were not willing to match the Rams’ offer.Packers deal S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to WashingtonThe Packers are reportedly picking up a fourth-round pick in the deal from Washington in next year’s draft, but this leaves the team with some major questions about their depth at safety.Trade RumorsTy Montgomery is on the trading blockRapoport reported on NFL Network just after 1:00 PM ET (h/t to Doug Farrar) that the Packers have made Montgomery available after his kickoff return miscue on Sunday in LA. Montgomery was one of the five players we speculated about being potential trade options earlier today.
