Grading the Green Bay Packers by position in Sunday’s loss to Lions

After a 19-7 loss in Detroit that dropped the Green Bay Packers to 1-2 on the season, here’s how the team graded out by position. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was not good. The entire offense was in a rut and Rodgers was pressured on almost every throw. He even missed open receivers on multiple occasions. Going 16/27 isn’t awful, but only throwing for 162 yards against an abysmal...

Is It Time to Panic in Green Bay?

#455896196 / gettyimages.com Today, the Packers fell to 1-2 on the season with a 19-7 loss against the Lions. The game was close in terms of the score, but the Packers didn’t play well at all in my opinion. Green Bay’s offense was shut down after the first quarter and they never recovered after an early fumble. I know it is only the third week of the season, but it’s performances...

Packers: Eddie Lacy, James Starks Give Green Bay Dominant 1-2 Punch at RB
