Packers Suffer Worst Home Loss In Years
Green Bay Packers could have won this football game. Yes, that’s true, even though Baltimore won by 23 points. It did not get very ugly until very late in this game. Green Bay’s defense actually played pretty well for nearly the entire game. The offense looked utter shit and raised some serious questions about the future of this team for 2017. After all the talk about how ‘the team needed to play well to get Rodgers back in here’ went flat. Packers get shutout for the first time in 11 years at home in an embarrassing laugher of a game.
You have to wonder what this game looks like if Brett Hundley does not give Jimmy Smith an endzone interception early on in this game. If the Packers came away with three or seven there, it might have improved the outlook of this game. But that might have been the only thing they could muster all game long. Hundley looked like he took five steps back from his impressive second half against Chicago and looked completely flustered against Baltimore. Hundley has zero awareness as a quarterback, and he cannot make secondary reads. Ravens’ experienced defense ate him for breakfast, lunch, dinner.
I’m not sure where Green Bay goes from here. Should I expect they’ll go 6-10 or 7-9? Am I freaking out over one game? I’m not really sure at this point. We’ve seen so many different things in the last three weeks. I know this isn’t a playoff team, and Green Bay finding a way in has been its toughest in years. Green Bay needed to win that game to keep pace, and instead, they’re in the thick of the outsiders looking in.
Pittsburgh awaits in what could be a primetime game that could be over before 8:30 pm.
