The Green Bay Packers season is going bad enough without Aaron Rodgers opening up his mouth and making it that much worse.
The Green Bay Packers lost their third straight game on Sunday as every game continues to be a struggle for Aaron Rodgers and company. Now, he’s airing the dirty laundry. Rodgers said the Packers are making “double digit” mistakes and there should be penalties for those who are making too many.
“Guys who are making too many mistakes shouldn’t be playing. Gotta start cutting some reps,” he said, per Matt Schneidman.
“It’s definitely not just one play here or there,” Rodgers said. “It’s 20% of the time. If we have 50 plays, and we have 10 missed assignments or mental errors, that’s 20% of the time. So that’s way too high. In the past we were looking more like, less than 10%, so that gives us a really good chance to be successful. Twenty percent, that’s way too high.
“We had so many, just, mental errors and mistakes,” he added. “It’s not the kind of football we’re used to playing over the years. There definitely have been games where we average four, five, six, maybe seven at the most mental errors or missed assignments per week. Some weeks you have like four, two sometimes. This season, a lot more than that every single week. It’s double digits every single week.”
Per Carmen Vitali of Fox Sports, former Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings hated everything about those comments from Rodgers.
“You can’t do this … You can’t sit down on a show and start talking about who should and shouldn’t be playing because of mental errors,” Jennings said.
Not helping matters was the Packers trading Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders. The Packers drafted receiver Christian Watson in the second round and so far, he has seven catches for 52 yards.
The road for Green Bay isn’t getting any easier any next week as they will head to Buffalo this weekend to face the Bills, who are widely regarded as a favorite to win the Super Bowl.
Green Bay is currently on their first three-game losing streak since 2018.
