Aaron Rodgers ‘not going to overreact’ to Packers’ struggles
Aaron Rodgers didn’t quite break out his “relax” speech to the media after the Packers’ loss to the Vikings on Sunday, but his comments did sound familiar.
The Green Bay quarterback said his Packers would not “overreact” to a 17-14 loss to Minnesota that saw Rodgers throw for just 213 yards while being sacked five times
“We’re not going to overreact,” said Rodgers. “It’s been two weeks. We’re not quite finding our rhythm yet, but we got some guys working in who hadn’t worked a lot together. We trust the process and believe we can get this thing turned around.
“We have kind of an awkward schedule here. We have a game next week at home, and then a bye and then three more at home. So we have to find our rhythm here as we head back home and hopefully we can take care of business at home.”
Hearing Rodgers’ tone, it’s clear he was not too worried about his 1-1 squad. But what is a concern is his numbers, including the five sacks and three fumbles (one lost).
There were serious questions about the Packers’ offensive line entering the season. Releasing Josh Sitton before the season didn’t help matters, and you can see the problems manifesting against a team with a tough defense like the Vikings’.
