In his weekly appearance on “The Pat Mcafee Show,” Aaron Rodgers had a lot of thoughts about the Packers’ trip to London, including the game and how the team is moving forward after a tough loss.
Pat Mcafee Show: Aaron Rodgers Says Margin of Error is Small
First and foremost, he talked about the love he had for the fans. As far as the game goes, it was a different story on “The Pat Mcafee Show” for Aaron Rodgers. “We had some opportunities to score late. Our margin of error is tiny”. The Packers failed to score any points on offense in the second half after scoring 20 points in the first half. Rodgers and Matt Lafluer have to commit to running the ball more often to bounce back. They only ran the ball 19 times on Sunday while Rodgers threw 39 passes. Can they find a way to get on the same page?
Where Is The Team’s Mentality Currently?
In addition, on “The Pat Mcafee Show,” Aaron Rodgers addressed the controversy surrounding his teammates mentality. He reiterated to Mcafee that things are OK and it was an overreaction. On Sunday, Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander echoed sentiments that he will be concerned about the defense if the team loses next Sunday against the Jets. The Packers squandered a 20-10 lead in the second half, which would deflate any team. However, Rodgers quickly shut down the narrative about the team’s negative morale on Sunday after the game. A major life lesson for all of us: what a person thinks and says, whether positive or negative will eventually translate into success or failure.
Pat Mcafee Show: Aaron Rodgers Welcomes High Expectations
To my surprise, on “The Pat Mcafee Show,” Aaron Rodgers welcomed the high expectations from fans. There will be bumps along the way. It will not be perfect every week. So fans need to be patient no matter how difficult it can be. It has not been the most ideal start to the season through the first five weeks, but 3-2 is not bad by any means. My expectations as a fan this year have certainly scaled back, given how much the offense has changed.
I refuse to push the panic button as of right now. It has not been pretty but as long as the team makes the necessary adjustments on offense with running the football and being able to play better defense at a consistently high level, the sky’s the limit for the Packers. I also look forward to future appearances on “The Pat Mcafee Show” from Aaron Rodgers to be plugged into the Packers QB’s mentality.
