Are Aaron Rodgers' Packers a top 10 team?

The Green Bay Packers are 2-1 in the 2022 NFL young season. After a heavy loss to the Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay defeated the Chicago Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

But Green Bay’s two wins were less impressive.

The Bears have a young quarterback named Justin Fields who made just seven passes against the Packers in Week 2, while the Buccaneers have Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Donovan Smith and Julio Many starters were missing including Jones.

And for Colin Cowherd, the Packers have become a team that only takes advantage of weaker opponents and teams that have lost key players, he said Monday’s edition of “The Herd.”

“I’ve seen Green Bay go up against a healthy, good team this year, and they’ve been beaten,” Cowherd said. “They beat low-watt Chicago who can’t complete a pass. The Tampa quarterback is on the brink of marriage. Their top three weapons are out in the arms league. , Donovan Smith is out and boy, it’s clear they need him.

“Green Bay should be worried. How the heck did Tampa Bay have more first downs, more pass first downs and a better fourth down? [down], more passing yards? Is there such a thing? Green Bay will only have one-way wins, beating injured or unable-to-score teams. And for Tampa, they are both. “

Colin Cowherd analyzes why the Packers’ victory over the Buccaneers shouldn’t be celebrated.

Green Bay revamped its receiving corps this season after trading No. 1 receiver Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders in the offseason. The new group includes names from the past, including Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb, as well as rookies Christian Watson and Romeo Dubs. Sammy Watkins was recently placed on the injured reserve list with a hamstring injury.

The Packers are averaging 16 points (27th in the NFL) and 355.7 yards (12th) per game. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers finished with 684 total passing yards, four passing touchdowns, two interceptions, and his rating of 98.0 quarterbacks, making him Green Bay’s first three in his game. Completed his 72.3% of passes.

FOX Sports cameras caught a dejected Rodgers after Aaron Jones fumbled on the goal line in the second quarter of the Packers’ 14-12 win over the Buccaneers. .

“His team failed in the first half, and then Aaron was wide-eyed and disappointed,” Cowherd said. “8 drives, 7 punts, mostly 4 plays. That’s it. Passed 92 yards after a teammate failed. Aaron rolled his eyes. Fox cameras caught it. Aaron. I’m disappointed in my teammates.Someone let me down., I’m a victim, I’m miserable.”And they just stop attacking.” “

“I don’t think they’re a top 10 team in this league,” Cowherd said. “They played against healthy teams and they were boxed. In the second half they can’t do anything. They can beat teams who can’t move the ball.”

Green Bay will host the New England Patriots (1-2) on Sunday.
