Ty Montgomery, Packers' coaches miscommunicate on fumble vs. Rams

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff pitched the ball to Todd Gurley on third-and-10 from the Green Bay 21-yard line with about one-minute to play and a two point lead. It all worked out in favor of the Rams, as they secured a 29-27 victory to improve to 8-0 on the season.

Montgomery, who spoke with the media on Monday for the first time about the play, denied he blatantly disobeyed the coaches and said he wasn't sure where the ball would land, so he made a "split-second decision" to run, not wanting there to be any question about where he was and "put the game in the ref's hands". "It's a reflection of how much these guys care, it's a reflection on how much they want to win, and it clearly, directly reflects we had every intention to go out there and beat that team, and that's a damn good team".

Montgomery responded to those quotes and addressed the idea that he was supposed to take a knee on the kickoff rather than returning it. You know what that was?

Packers cornerback Tramon Williams defended Ty Montgomery after several Packers players anonymously accused the running back of being selfish when he didn't take a knee on the kickoff late in Sunday's loss. Rodgers would get the ball, go down the field and Mason Crosby would hit the kick to win it. As far as the drama and non-sense about it, I have nothing to say.


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.

Montgomery's intention obviously was not to fumble, but that's precisely why he was told to take a knee. "I saw when he kind of slowed down, he knew what he was doing". I mean, it's 12!

Montgomery expressed dismay at the questioning of his character and team commitment. No one ever said anything to me. "They tested him, and I thought he played lights out".

The Packers must put the loss behind them as they get ready for the New England Patriots Sunday night, November 4 in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Montgomery's ended up being the incorrect one, apparently. "But you also trust your players".
