Aaron Rodgers throws teammates under the bus amid Packers struggles

Written by Tony Ghaul

The Green Bay Packers are in very unfamiliar territory at the moment, sitting at 3-4 on the season after another loss, this time to the Washington Commanders.

Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers didn’t exactly play great, but he evidently believes differently.

“Aaron Rodgers says on The Pat McAfee Show that the Packers are routinely making double-digit mental errors in games this season when, in past seasons, that number was, at most, seven.”

“Guys who are making too many mistakes shouldn’t be playing. Gotta start cutting some reps.”

“Asked by McAfee about his own performance, Rodgers said that QB coach Tom Clements gave Rodgers his highest single-game grade yet this season in Sunday’s loss against the Commanders.”

Rodgers completed 23 of 35 passes for just 194 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. He struggled to get anything going downfield and even committed a fumble, although it was recovered by the Packers.

The Packers have now lost three in a row and it won’t get any easier this week against the high-flying Buffalo Bills.

Rodgers doesn’t exactly have a ton of reliable offensive weapons, but putting all the blame on others and praising himself seems a bit much, especially after another defeat.

Aaron Rodgers has to step up and be better leader to his young group of receivers.
