Before Sunday’s showdown with the Atlanta Falcons, the Green Bay Packers were coming in as the hottest team in football. After starting the season (4-6), Aaron Rodgers and company rattled off eight straight wins before running into Matt Ryan.
The Falcons demolished Green Bay 44-21, but Rodgers doesn’t believe his team needs to blow it up in the offseason.
“We need to reload. I don’t think we need to rebuild; we need to reload. We got a lot of players who are young. … We just need to reload a little bit this offseason,” Rodgers said.
Putting up points isn’t an issue for this Packers team, but preventing opponents from scoring is. In order for Green Bay to take that next step, they must address the defensive side of the ball.
