Rodgers: Getting over Packers' loss includes scotch

Print

Aaron Rodgers needs a stiff drink after the 30-16 butt kicking he received at the hands of the Dallas Cowboys.

"Have a glass of scotch and chill out a little bit [and] watch the film," Rodgers said Sunday of his plan after the loss, via ESPN.com. "I'm my biggest critic, and I look at this as finely as I look at every other game and improve."

Rodgers continued his streak of confounding play: missing throws, tossing a head-scratching pick, losing a fumble and generally playing poorly.

The previous film sessions for the past year haven't helped the light bulb go off for the dynamic but struggling quarterback. Rodgers continued his 12-game streak with fewer than 300 yards passing -- for comparison Brian Hoyer has thrown for more than 300 yards in each of his four starts this season. Since Week 8, 2015, Rodgers has a passer rating of 84.0.

Restless Packers fans have seen enough of their struggling offense, booing the quarterback several times in Sunday's deflating defeat.

"Look, we're upset, they're upset, it's part of it," Rodgers said. "It's not the first time, probably won't be the last time."

The Packers' offensive problems aren't anything new. Even after the offensive explosion versus Detroit we pointed out it was more a poor defensive effort than Green Bay's O getting right.

Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel did as good a job as you'll find breaking down Rodgers' struggles.

With issues that aren't easily fixed, the Packers' quarterback might need more than one glass of scotch. The fans will probably need some too if the rest of the season follows Sunday's script.
