Unin­spired play

Packer Plus - - Commentary -

With all the in­juries to the run game, and pass de­fense the Pack­ers needed a stel­lar per­for­mance from Aaron Rodgers to have a chance. Un­for­tu­nately, we got what is now known as an av­er­age per­for­mance from Aaron Rodgers.

When a quar­ter­back makes as much money as Rodgers does, it is dif­fi­cult to re­place him no mat­ter how poorly he plays. Troy Aik­man has said early on that “He’s a lit­tle off” re­fer­ring to Rodgers ac­cu­racy. In all fair­ness even Da­vante Adams is back to his old ways of drop­ping passes. Jordy Nel­son and Ty Montgomery fum­ble at crit­i­cal times of the game.

Give the Cow­boys credit. They played with in­ten­sity and played to win. This Packer team had too many turnovers, looked un­re­hearsed, and pressed to make any kind of play. With Rodgers con­tin­u­ing his medi­ocre (for him) play and our de­fen­sive back­field de­fense­less this is go­ing to be a long sea­son.
