“There has to be that healthy fear as a player that if you don’t do your job they’ll get rid of you,” said Rodgers. “I think we’ve all got to go back and the urgency’s got to pick up, the focus has got to pick up … we’ve all got to play better, and that starts with me.”
Playing better. If it were only that simple.
Perhaps it’s time that the Packers realize that they’re just not that talented. Maybe they just don’t have the horses and they aren’t really capable of playing better.
There appear to be so many things wrong with this team that there’s no obvious or quick fix. Perhaps that’s why Rodgers isn’t telling anyone to relax like he famously did in 2014.
He knows this isn’t going to turn around.
