Larrivee: 'Never seen anything like' Packers loss, but 'they did a lot of good things'

Many Green Bay Packers fans are still asking the question "how?" after the team's 34-30 debacle at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals.
So was the voice of the Packers, Wayne Larrivee.
"How many teams have scored 30 consecutive points in a game and lost? How many teams have forced four consecutive turnovers in a game and lost?" Larrivee inquired on 620WTMJ's "Wisconsin's Morning News."
"I have never seen anything like it."
Then again, how many times does a 4th-and-inches run attempt for a first down not just fail, but turn into seven points for the other team?
How many times do you lose your best defensive player, one of the top pass-catching tight ends in football and a running back who gained 130-plus yards on the ground the week before, all in one game?
All that could make fans forget something that Larrivee noticed during the game.
"They did a lot of good things," said Larrivee.
"I thought the (Bengals) tight ends would rip up the (Packers) secondary. (Jermaine) Greshman had four catches, and (Tyler) Eifert had one. I thought (wide receiver) A.J. Green, if he has a bad day, is going to get 100 yards. He had four catches, 46 yards. They did a pretty good job in a lot of areas in this game, plus they ran the football for over 180 yards against a team that had been giving up 65 yards a game."
