At 2-3 are the Green Bay Packers in trouble?Last season the Packers survived off the arm of Aaron Rodgers who threw 45 touchdowns and only 3 interceptions. Thus far in 2012, Rodgers has only 10 touchdowns to 4 interceptions, which projects him to have approximately 32 touchdowns and 13 interceptions on the season.
