Calls for a “Players Only Meeting”
When the Packers lose the way they did at home it stands to reason people are really going to have some questions. But when LeRoy Butler even starts to lose faith we probably need to worry.
Butler is the “eternal optimist” when it comes to all things Packers.
The former defensive star safety and pro football hall of famer expressed what he thought on X.
Welp! The @packers defense gives me heartburn 🤦🏽♂️,with So much on the LINE!,the last 2 losses are very disappointing,i guess growing pains are expected,but the defense looks like they are tired,and running out of gas,it's simple!WIN ALL 3 games left,PLAYERS ONLY MEETING NEEDED

Butler makes a call in his message for a Players Only meeting. Maybe as a former player he is seeing something fans would not normally see.
Here is another tweet from LeRoy, albeit from the Monday Night loss vs New York. Sense a pattern?
🤮 just when you think the @packers can over come the youth mistakes , it's a shame to this bad after playing amazing to get in the playoff
Race, still in it but man this one was tuff to watch
