The Green Bay Packers wide receiving corps is surely not the best in the league, but their star QB throwing them under the bus every week is not helping matters.
Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reported the criticism of the receivers “isn’t sitting well” given Aaron Rodgers’ decision to not attend voluntary offseason workouts.
“Some of the young wide receivers have been painted as scapegoats for the Packers problems, despite Aaron Rodgers’ absence during OTAs, which isn’t sitting well with some there,” Fowler wrote.
Rodgers previously said, “I think guys who are making too many mistakes shouldn’t be playing.”
The Green Bay Packers have had no chemistry on offense. Rodgers went from back-to-back MVPs to one of the worst starting QBs in football. He currently sits 27th among starters in QBR, and his seven interceptions are already the most he’s had since 2016.
No Packers WR is currently on pace to top 1,000 receiving yards. Allen Lazard leads the team with 427 yards on 30 receptions. Rookie WRs Romeo Doubs and Christian Watson have been dealing with injuries.
