The Inexperienced Bay Packers have been a colossal disappointment this season, and that’s placing it properly. Aaron Rodgers’ numbers aren’t horrible, however his effectivity has dropped significantly from his two earlier campaigns, the place he gained back-to-back MVP awards. This yr, in comparison with these performances, he appears to be like completed.

All it is advisable to do is take a look at the Packers’ Week 9 recreation towards the Detroit Lions, a staff Rodgers has dominated (like the remainder of the league) throughout his profession. Coming into this week, Rodgers had thrown 4 interceptions in eight video games. The Lions compelled A-Rod into three INTs within the first three-quarters of the sport and led 8-6 heading into the fourth quarter.

Earlier than Sunday’s recreation, Rodgers had thrown 52 profession TDs to only eight INTs towards Detroit. Now, Rodgers is struggling to finish passes he used to make together with his eyes closed. The Lions aren’t out of the blue some robust protection that makes it exhausting to maneuver the ball down the sector. Inexperienced Bay’s offense hasn’t been what it as soon as was with out Davante Adams on the surface catching passes.

Rodgers hasn’t developed a lot chemistry together with his younger receivers and nonetheless doesn’t appear to be taking accountability on the sector for the staff’s struggles. He’s nonetheless pointing the finger and blaming others when it’s him who has fallen off. A lot of Rodgers’ passes this yr are both late, off-target, or simply dangerous choices. That throw he used to make look so easy, the place he turns and throws off his again foot, is not hitting the mark constantly.

Coming into Week 9, Rodgers averaged simply 225 passing yards per recreation, which is the bottom since he grew to become Inexperienced Bay’s full-time starter in 2008. Should you suppose this argument is alarmist, simply take a look at Rodgers’ efficiency towards the Lions, the place he and the Packers’ offense scored 9 factors towards arguably the worst protection within the NFL. The Lions ended up beating their NFC North rival 15-9. Rodgers accomplished 53 p.c of his passes towards Detroit, which is his lowest of the season.

We will proceed responsible Inexperienced Bay’s inexperienced broad receivers or younger head coach, Matt LaFleur, however sooner or later, the finger must level again on the man pointing his outward. Rodgers clearly isn’t the identical quarterback he was final yr, and a part of that’s the absence of Adams, however a big a part of it stems from Rodgers being over the hill. It’s time to face info. Rodgers and the Packers’ championship rivalry window has slammed shut, and so they squandered it by relying solely on his arm and never constructing correctly round him.

As a result of the NFC is so broad open this yr, there’s nonetheless an outdoor shot the Packers may climb into playoff place however don’t anticipate them to win any postseason video games. If Inexperienced Bay has any likelihood at doing that, they’ll have to rapidly get this offense again on observe. The Packers dropped to 3-6 after the loss to the Lions. Inexperienced Bay may not win one other three video games in the event that they proceed to supply this sort of outing.
