Aaron Rodgers On Pace For Career-Worst Season

The frustration of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is growing weekly due to the young team’s tendency to make mistakes.

It’s easy to see why. At 3-4, Green Bay is off to it’s worst ever start through seven games under Aaron Rodgers. 

Sunday’s recent calamitous defeat to the Washington Commanders marked their first three-game losing streak since 2018.

“Guys who are making too many mistakes shouldn’t be playing, you know. Gotta start cutting some reps, and maybe guys who aren’t playing, give them a chance,” Aaron Rodgers said.

In 2022, Green Bay is averaging 17 points per game, their fewest in the first seven games in Rodgers’ tenure.

The franchise quarterback is on pace for career worsts in passing yards per attempt (6.5) and passing yards per game (228.1). With a 39.8 QB rating, he is currently ranked 26th in the league.

“We had so many mental errors and mistakes,” Rodgers said Tuesday. “It’s not the kind of football we’re used to playing over the years. There have definitely been seasons where we average four or five, six, maybe seven at the most, kind of mental errors or missed assignments per week. 

Some weeks you have like four, two sometimes. This season there’s a lot more of that every single week. It’s double digits every single week. Even on the game, we had like 50 plays or something — there wasn’t a ton of plays, they had 37 minutes time of possession — a lot of mistakes.”

“I think when the players really take over, then you’re going to see the possibility of us making a run,” he said. “I’m not talking about the players usurping power from coaches. I’m talking about we take over. We take ownership of what we’re putting on the field. Now, some of that might be in the plan. 

Some of that might be, ‘Hey, I really want to do this,’ offense, defense, (special) teams, whatever it might be. But the other part is taking ownership of your daily habits and your routines. Just cause we’re a young team, we just can’t write that off as, ‘Oh, we’re figuring it out. The rookies are figuring this thing out. Are they gonna go through that rookie wall?’ And blah, blah, blah.”
