It’s hard not to blame Aaron Rodgers for the Packer’s sinking fortunes over the past 15 games.
And here’s a stat that illuminates why.
Since Week 8 of the 2015 season, Rodgers has been just as worthy of riding pine as disgraced Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel once was—6.1 yards per pass attempt, 58.1 completion percentage and 62 total QBR.
If that’s not telling enough, during that same span the Packers have gone 9-10, and, particularly this season, Rodgers has looked all out of sorts. Against the Cowboys Sunday, his mistakes — an interception and a fumble — both came with Green Bay deep in Dallas territory. While there’s still plenty of time to turn things around, the first order of business should be to get Rodgers out of his funk.
Next up is a date with the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field and should that go down as a loss, look for the heat to get turned up more than a few degrees on both Rodgers and head coach Mike McCarthy.
