All of the good vibes the Green Bay Packers had built from their win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday dissipated in their loss to the Tennessee Titans yesterday. And Colin Cowherd is taking the Packers to task for it.
On Friday's edition of The Herd, Cowherd reiterated his long-standing belief that the Packers lack crucial leadership within the locker room. He said that the team lacks tenacity, resilience and doesn't have any "foxhole guys" - with QB Aaron Rodgers being among the most notable non-leaders.
Cowherd stated that the Packers lack an identity and don't do anything particularly well enough to be a real force in the NFL right now. He re-stated his distaste for Aaron Rodgers not appearing all-in on the season too.
"Zero tenacity. Zero resilience... There's no foxhole guys there, especially not Aaron Rodgers," Cowherd said.
It's nearly impossible at this point to defend the Green Bay Packers amid their 4-7 season. They're on pace to miss the playoffs for the first time since 2018. Former head coach Mike McCarthy lost his job with a similar record that year.
The Packers have a plethora of problems, but many are going to be difficult to address in the 2023 offseason. The main reason for that is the astronomical price of Aaron Rodgers' contract, which makes him uncuttable no matter how poorly he plays.
Is there any way for the Packers to turn things around before the end of the season?
