Remember when video games became an issue for the Green Bay Packers during the season?
During the Packers’ Thanksgiving night debacle, analyst Cris Collinsworth described a players-only meeting where some of the team’s leaders had to tell some of the younger guys they were playing too many video games.
After the report, quarterback Aaron Rodgers said it was blown out of proportion. That there was no players-only meeting.
In the process, he also confirmed that something related to guys playing too many video games was discussed, players-only meeting or not.
The message was pretty clear.
Some guys were not taking their jobs seriously and thus, they weren’t prepared on Sundays.
We went right ahead and assumed Davante Adams was the culprit because, well… did you see how terrible that guy was in 2015?
In hindsight, running back Eddie Lacy may have been the guy.
Not only was he publicly told to lose weight after the season, but his Instagram sure does seem to suggest he LOVES playing video games.

I mean, yeah. I dig some Sonic, but who has time for that shit?
No one who takes their job seriously, as far as I know.
