Aaron Rodgers advocates patience

Aaron Rodgers urges patience

DAY

Defeated by the Minnesota Vikings early on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers suffered several failures, particularly on offense. 

The unit led by quarterback Aaron Rodgers had just one touchdown in a 23-7 loss. The holder of the last two NFL Most Valuable Player titles completed 22 of 34 passes attempted for 195 yards. He also threw an interception.

The 38-year-old veteran, however, suffered from a lack of production from his young wide receivers. Early in the game, Christian Watson notably dropped a throw that could have been a 75-yard major. Romeo Doubs, another first-year player, was not in symbiosis with his pivot.

“We have to be patient with these guys because they are very young, asserted Rodgers , whose remarks were reported by the CBS Sports network. They will drop balloons. I hated seeing that on our first offensive streak, but there are going to be some failures.”

This is also the second consecutive season where the Packers have delivered a poor performance. as a curtain raiser. In 2021, they were down 38-3 against the New Orleans Saints.

“It's been two years in a row that we don't look like we're ready for our first game , said head coach Matt Lafleur. Certainly, we will do a full review and make the necessary corrections.

The good news for the Packers is that they were able to turn things around in 2021 and conclude their regular season at top of the National Conference North Division, with a 13-4 record.
