The Green Bay Packers (0-1) got absolutely dominated in every facet of the game by the New Orleans Saints (1-0) in a 38-3 loss at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida today.
I should have given up on this game prior to kickoff just like the Green Bay Packers did. They treated this like a preseason game in early August!
Bishop Sycamore has requested to schedule the Packers next week.
Aaron Rodgers was a disaster today. He finished completing 15-of-28 passes for 133 yards and two interceptions and finished with a 36.8 QB Rating.
Rodgers has set himself up for unprecedented criticism with his little hissy fit this offseason featuring whatever unhappiness and refusal to attend offseason workouts …. and when he throws two picks in one quarter, the criticism should flood.
The Last Dance?
I think Aaron Rodgers is forgetting he’s 1-4 as a starter in NFC Championship games.
I’m just spitballing here, but maybe there’s something to working hard in the offseason instead of making terrible commercials and worrying about who was cut in 2019.
Randall Cobb was a complete non-factor today and wasn’t targeted until there were three minutes left when the game was already decided. I’m sure the QB/GM will be pleased.
“See, this is why we need Jake Kumerow,” -Aaron Rodgers probably.
Jordan Love relieved Rodgers in the fourth quarter and completed 5-of-7 passes for 68 yards and fumbled inside the 5-yard line in the final minute of the game.
Jameis Winston completed 14-of-20 passes for just 148 yards, but threw five touchdown passes. Green Bay allowed 171 rushing yards.
Good thing the Packers fired Mike Pettine! Joe Barry is the best the Packers could do after they sacked Pettine? Seriously?
Joe Barry needs to buy Aaron Rodgers a nice bottle of champagne for taking the attention away from him in the offseason.
Matt LaFleur postgame said: “I did a pretty bad job getting these guys ready to play.”
When asked what he told the team in the locker room after the game, he said “We’ll find out what we’re all about.”
The biggest positive of the game: it’s over. That felt like the longest game in the history of the NFL.
Happy Week #1, Packers fans everywhere!
