Here is what some of the Packers players and coaches had to say about the team's 20-17 loss to the Bears in Week Three:
 
QB Aaron Rodgers on the Packers' sloppy play: "This  was disappointing. It was uncharacteristic of our football team. During the second quarter and second half we moved it around and did some good things,  but field position and penalties hurt us." (Source: NFL postgame quote sheets)
 
CB Charles Woodson on the pass-interference call that led to the Bears' game-winning field  goal: "The quarterback just throws the ball in the air; both guys are turned around looking for the ball and they're both engaged. I mean, you can't  tell me that  the receiver didn't put his hands on Morgan. And if you can tell that, then maybe I'm a liar, but I don't believe that." (Source: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
 
ORT Mark Tauscher on his three penalties: "You can't win playing like that. I had three, which I usually do that in a season, so it's frustrating, and you have to look at yourself and figure out what we're doing wrong and try to improve on it." (Source: Green Bay Press-Gazette)

LB Nick Barnett on the Packers' lack of discipline: "I don't want to say that we are a totally undisciplined team, but the bottom line is we have to clean that stuff up on both sides of the ball. You can't win a game like that with that many penalties, so we have to clean it up and play better football." (Source: NFL postgame quote sheets)
 
Special-teams coordinator Shawn Slocum on Devin Hester's punt return for a TD: "The return by Devin put seven on the board. That could have been the margin. He's exceptional, but that's all the more reason for us to get him to the sideline and do a better job on him." (Source: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy on Green Bay's team-record-breaking number of penalties: "(Eighteen) penalties, that doesn't cut it. You can't win football (games) like that." (Source: Green Bay Press-Gazette)
