Aaron Rodgers Booed By Packers Fans 

Written by Tony Ghaul

Green Bay Packers fans are not happy with the way the team and the star QB are playing this season.

Before the team headed to the locker room during halftime of their Week 11 game against the Tennessee Titans at home, fans at Lambeau Field could be heard booing the Packers.

Everyone thought that the Green Bay Packers had turned a corner and were ready to climb the NFL standings, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers were back to their usual struggles in Week 11.

In their Thursday Night Football showdown with the Tennessee Titans, the Packers offense led by Rodgers really struggled. Rodgers was missing wide-open receivers. He also went 8-for-16 in the fourth quarter, with his longest pass being a 28-yard throw to Randall Cobb.

In the fourth quarter, as the Packers were trailing 27-17, Aaron Rodgers threw an incomplete pass intended for Allen Lazard on a 4th-and-3, which led to more booing from the Packers faithful at Lambeau Field.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Rodgers explained he wasn’t able to get the same grip on the football as he normally does.”I’ve got to throw the ball better than I did tonight,” he said.

This is a loss that largely falls on Rodgers’ shoulders. The Packers did a respectable job against Derrick Henry and the Titans rushing attack (88 rushing yards allowed), and while Ryan Tannehill (333 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT) torched the Green Bay secondary, the Packers had their chances.

The Packers dropped to 4-7 on the season with the loss, putting their playoff hopes in peril. With just six games left this 2022, time is running out for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers to turn things around.
