The Green Bay Packers’ 2021 season got off to a very rocky start.
Green Bay was blown out by the New Orleans Saints in Jacksonville – the game was re-located due to Hurricane Ida – Sunday evening. The Saints and Jameis Winston throttled the Packers and Aaron Rodgers, 38-3. The game was every bit as ugly as the final score would indicate.
Following the game, Rodgers shared a brutally honest admission.
“We probably felt like we were going to go up and down the field today on whoever was out there, and that didn’t happen,” Rodgers admitted on Sunday night.

The Packers were certainly feeling good about themselves coming into the regular season.
“This is probably the hungriest team that I’ve ever been around, honestly, just because we have been so close a number of times now,” Packers wide receiver Davante Adams said Wednesday. “I feel like everybody in the back of their mind, they know how reachable it is and realistic we are to getting to that final step.”
Rodgers echoed a similar thought.
“The feel that I get with the energy in the locker room is not pressure, it’s focus,” Rodgers said. “I think it’s the right perspective and the right type of focus. We know we have a talented team, we know what the expectations are. We’re just focusing on accountability and holding each other accountable.”
Those feelings clearly didn’t carry over into the regular season, though. The Packers need to turn things around and fast.
