Let’s not mince words here, it hasn’t been good. Each week the Green Bay Packers look like a dumpster fire, doesn’t really help build any confidence to think that this is a playoff caliber team. They just suck right now. They can’t win a game.
The Packers will take on the Washington Redskins on Sunday night, and if they don’t win this one, you can stick a fork in their playoff hopes. This team is not going to get a wildcard berth, and with the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit lions both winning today, they cannot afford to go down two games.
What is wrong with this team? Yes, they have injuries, but injuries don’t mean that you go down 21-0 against a team like the Tennessee Titans in the first quarter. They’re inconsistent and are giving up way too many big plays.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is still putting up “good” numbers, but it doesn’t matter when you’re putting up those numbers when the game is out of reach. He’s missing throws, averaging a lot less per attempt, and throwing interceptions. All uncharacteristic of the quarterback we’ve come to know.
We need to finally acknowledge that yes, this team has problems, but how are they going to fix it? This is a team that had super bowl aspirations when the year started, and now they’re 4-5 and on the verge of missing the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
One things for sure. They need their injured players back. They’ll get a bit of a boost on both sides of the ball this week by getting back Tight End Jared Cook on offense, and Linebacker Clay Matthews on defense.
Hopefully the other holes get filled as the season goes on, and they can stop the boat from sinking before it’s too late.
Feel free to leave your thoughts on what’s wrong with the Packers, and how you think that they can fix them.
