It is safe to say that Green Bay Packers fans are not happy with their front office. For many of them, their frustration began years ago with the selection of Rashan Gary, then an injury-prone prospect, in 2019. For others, it was when Brian Gutekunst traded up in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft to select Jordan Love.
Regardless of when it started, now that Aaron Rodgers is gone, Love is starting, and the Packers are 2-5, fans are not exactly happy with the front office. As such, they will look for any reason to criticize Gutekunst.
The latest is on a post David Bakhtiari made on Twitter (X) that had nothing to do with the Packers’ front office at all has become the latest launching site of the latest Gutekunst criticism.
Green Bay Packers Fans Use David Bakhtiari’s Tweet to Attack Brian Gutekunst
Bakhtiari posted a Tweet praising the New York Giants general manager and Leonard Williams for their communication regarding the trade that sent Williams to the Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday.
As many fans are aware, the Packers traded cornerback Rasul Douglas to the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday, a move that was not expected by anyone. Fans took Bakhtiari’s post as a shot at the front office and added their own criticism:
Bahk with the shot at gute 👀

Brian Gutekunst can’t pick the right players, make the right contracts, or treat the players he does have with respect. What exactly does he do well? He’s not the GM that has what it takes to build a Super Bowl roster.

Gute is the worst

Take notes, Gutey

It bears mentioning, again, that Bakhtiari did not mention the Packers’ front office at all. In the past, when he has had criticism for anyone in the organization, he has just come out and said it.
It also bears mentioning that, just a few weeks ago, Bakhtiari praised Gutekunst and his communication with him as he and the team move forward with his knee treatment.
When Packers players were asked about the Rasul Douglas traded, it was clear that none of them were happy about it. It is safe to assume that Bakhtiari likely was not thrilled either.
But let’s face it: Bakhtiari has always been a straight shooter. If he had a problem with something the Packers did, he would just come out and say it.
