It’s been a rough year for Aaron Rodgers. The two time MVP is coming off of 7 consecutive playoff appearances, but now finds himself in danger of breaking the streak. He’s on a 4 game losing streak, the first time he’s experienced such a poor run of form since his first year playing back in 2008.
Despite all that, Rodgers remains optimistic that he and his team still have a shot. Speaking with USAToday, he insisted his belief that the team can win out and make a run at the playoffs.
“I feel like we can run the table,” Rodgers said. “I really do. The offense is starting to click a little bit more. We’ve just got to get together a game where we’re more consistent from the first snap to the last. We’ve been, I think, getting closer to that. We’ve really been clicking at times in the past few games.”
Regardless of how well he and his offensive players are clicking, the team can’t win anything unless the defense steps up. They’ve allowed 30+ points in all four games in their losing streak, including over 40 in the last two. Those are terrible numbers, and they’ll need to change fast if they want some wins.
Their schedule won’t do them any favors either. They’ll travel to Philly to take on an Eagles team that hasn’t lost at home all season. Then they’ll take on Houston and Seattle, both of whom lead their divisions, before finishing out the season with three games against divisional opponents. It won’t be easy, but if any man in the league can inspire his team to do it, it’s probably Rodgers.
