The Green Bay Packers are 3-3 six weeks through the 2022 NFL season. Not exactly the mark you would expect from a team with this amount of talent on it. That kind of start will certainly draw attention from around the league. This time it came from one active NFL coach is chose to remain anonymous (because of course he did).
Active NFL Coach Takes Cheap Shot At Packers
“They’re awful right now,” one coach told Heavy, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss another team freely. “They’re bad on defense, bad on offense. Maybe the biggest problem is that when players talk about retirement — like [Aaron] Rodgers and [Tom] Brady have — they already have one foot out the door. That’s just been my experience.”
In terms of Aaron Rodgers’ retirement comment, it was been widely talked about for a few years now. The conversations were certainly put on hold when Rodgers signed his three-year extension back in March. However, we still seem to be on a “year-by-year basis” with Rodgers. Even after the 2022 NFL draft, Aaron Rodgers connected the development of the rookie wide receivers with his retirement. Matt Schneidman of The Athletic tweeted Rodgers’ comments on October 5.
“Seeing the development of those guys can’t help but be a part of the decision,” Rodgers said.
The Offense Has Struggled At Times This Year
More than once this season we have seen the Packers fail to put up a second-half point. The first time was to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, then it happened again a few weeks later against the New York Giants. That coupled with the fact that the Packers are averaging just 17.8 points per game does not bode well for winning many games. This team needs to figure out an identity quick if they want to save their 2022 season.
