If we have 50 plays and we have 10 missed tasks or mental errors, that’s 20 percent of the time. So that’s way way too high. In the past we’d look more like, less than 10 percent, and that gives us a good chance.” Really to be successful. 20 percent, that’s way too high. This is a play from a series that makes it really hard on yourself. So we have to fix that. I think players who make a lot of mistakes shouldn’t play. You should start cutting some reps. And maybe players who don’t play, give them a chance. “

Rodgers looked much calmer a week ago, even when his team was in two straight games of defeats. But obviously The Packers’ struggles to turn things around is starting to worry him, which makes sense considering that Invoices They are coming then.

Rodgers says players should take responsibility

“I think when the players really take charge, you’ll see the potential for us to run, Rodgers added. I’m not talking about players taking power from coaches. I’m talking about taking charge. We take ownership of what we put in the field. Now, some of that might be in the plan. Some of that could be, hey, “I really want to do that”, offense, defense, teams (specially), whatever.

“But the other part is owning your daily habits and routine. Just because we’re a young team, we can’t omit that as, “Oh, we get that.” …we need everyone on the same page to make possible plays. We need them from Monday to Saturday to make time to be ready to play Sunday. Because there are many times in the game where there are simple, simple things that don’t get done.”

Those are all fair points, although Rodgers himself has a lot of work to do. This is one of the most challenging moments for the Packers in years, and we’ll see if it’s on national lights Sunday He gets the best results from them.
