Aaron Rodgers not worried about offense finding rhythm

The Packers only scored six points over the final three quarters of Sunday’s game against Washington, but that was all they needed.

They posted 14 points in the first quarter and their defense kept Washington out of the end zone until less than two minutes were left in the 20-15 victory. There was acknowledgement that the offense could have done more after the game, but quarterback Aaron Rodgers said that he was focused on the win and still confident in the unit’s ability to get the job done.

“Winning is the only thing that matters,” Rodgers said. “Even in the midst of some of these games that aren’t great flow the entire time, we are winning. We expect to win games when the defense holds them to less than 20 points. We’ll find our rhythm. I’m not worried about that on offense. We’ll keep getting the ball to our playmakers and figure out what’s going to work that week.”

Rodgers said he “wouldn’t mind winning ugly all the way to the Super Bowl,” although it’s hard to envision a path to Miami through the NFC without putting more points on the board.

  1. He may not be worried, but we are. The Packers didn’t look good. No dominance. Like in recent years past, they will beat the average teams, will beat most of the good teams, but cannot beat the really good teams. Think of the first round of the playoffs recently, one and done, if memory serves, and it often doesn’t

  2. I would think it would be a an improvement that if a 3 step drop he would throw it on the 3rd step… 5th on a 5 step… occasionally I understand that people may be covered, but he is smart and a great QB and should be able to put it where only his WR can catch it… if seperation being created is an issue, then they need to fix it via coaching or in the off-season.

    A wins and win, but every realistic Packer fan knows two things, GB can play better…. and if they don’t, they won’t be going anywhere in the playoffs.

  3. Green Bay already found their ryhthm earlier this year. Just saving it for when it matters. Go Pack Go!

  4. He should be worried, it’s a trend. Simply put, the packers aren’t as good as their record would indicate. Not saying they are a bad team, but packer fans have their green colored beer goggles on like normal, thinking their team is infallible. But then again, I’d think the same thing if I was from Wisconsin, that state has literally nothing going for it besides the Packers legacy. Beyond that its just alcoholism, cousin-dating and WWE wrestling.

  5. A win is a win ??
    Really??

    Packer fans say the Vikings wins don’t count because the Vikings beat bad teams. Will packer fans chew Aaron out for making this statement?
    Aaron, according to your own fans, your wins don’t count.

  6. Hey Bingo you clown. More mInn hate. Notice no Packer fans post on minn articles. We are in your collective heads. I like that. That makes it hurt more when we beat you, like before.

  7. I get all the games and quite honestly think Rodgers is calling the plays and refuses yo give up the McCarthy playbook, everyone go deap and turn. The in consistenctcy at this stage of the season is tell tailing. Loses to bears, vikings snd possibly lions and this is a toad team no one fears

  8. Wash big problemo like a lot of teams, not coming out thriwing on ay one. This is the worst pass d in the nfl and teams arent extorting it until its too latem

  9. So Bingo what is minn known for. Ice fishing, love boat parties, Hubert Humphrey, Somalians, that dope from Saturday Night Live, bragging about 1000 lakes when Wis has more, and on and on. I went to River Falls, so I know all about minn teams, fans, and losers. You got nothing to brag about, absolutely nothing. Get out of the twin cities and you have nothing. We have GB and Madison. And what is up with the u of ms basketball court. Hideous.

  10. I love his attitude! What’s their record? Did the Vikings pass them up today? Are they still in first place in the division? Will the Bears be favored next week? One game at a time. The next game. That’s all the Packers have to concern themselves with.

    How dare you tell the great and wonderful AROD what to do.
    As if you know anything about being a QB

  12. If the Packers don’t find a rhythm on offense in the next 3 games, the playoff seedings won’t matter much. In fact, they would be better off not making the playoffs. Most of what I see is on Rodgers. There is something not right about his play. It is like he’s not playing the game right, like when he was trying to get McCarthy fired, has stuck with him this season. I guess not caring is hard to shake.

    Anyway, As much as I hate the Packers, I can’t rip on them. If I saw the game I maybe could. As a Vikings fan I can say once the Vikings were up by 20 points they went into conservative mode and simply ran out the clock. I don’t know if the Packers went into run mode for the same reason. I’m just trying to be polite to what might be the dumbest thing I’ve ever read…

    I’m glad the NFL and God love the Green Bay Packers.

    They love us because our fans aren’t idiot jerks, like Vikings fan

    And We love you too waffle. Kisses 🤣

  16. A lot of people talk about his low INT numbers. But the simple truth is, he’s hanging onto the ball until guys are wide open. This Packers team is not that good.

    ——

    And yet…they’re better than the Vikings, so at least there’s that.

  18. Another tremendous win for the most successful team in NFL history. The almighty has once again chosen to bestow the best fans in the NFL with the first place team in the NFC North. It truly is humbling to once again be running away with the division.

  19. If the Vikings fans are paying attention, the Packers have a full game lead on the Vikings and after the Saints loss today now have 2, count them 2 tie breakers over the Vikings. They only have to win 3 of their last 4 games to win the division. So that means even if the Vikings win the game against Green Bay, the Packers will still win the division if they beat the Bears and Lions.

  20. “Feels good to be 10-3” and the #2 seed in the NFC. Totally control their own destiny. That is where you want to be with 3 games to go in the regular season.

    If the Packers win out, then they keep the #2 seed. It does not matter what other teams do.

    The focus now is on Chicago. Our main rival and they are in the mix as well for the playoffs. HUGE game Sunday at Lambeau.

    #PackersNation!

  21. “We’ll find our rhythm. I’m not worried about that on offense.”

    Aaron, the rhythm loss should worry an NFL QB that cares about winning.

    You were totally ineffective against the 3 win Chargers, benched against the Niners and have looked like an extremely average team in your other games in the last 6 games.

    Your best performance of the season was against the Raiders 7 games ago. I guess after needing the refs to beat the Lions the week before, you managed to put a single game together.

    Since then, the rhythm has been gone.

    There are only 3 games left.

  23. I love the casual confidence of Rodgers. I think it’s great when he “schools” his teammates right there on the field when they screw up. There isn’t a better place to learn the lesson, and just in time. When you consider how far the Packers had to go this year (some casual observers lacking familiarity with the Packers repeatedly and mistakenly call it a re-build,) they have exceeded all expectations. They started out with a new front office, new head coach, and an all-new offensive scheme. Not easy. Two-steps forward, one-step back, steadily moving forward. They’re still doing it and they’re doing it well enough to keep a vastly superior and a daunting and vaunted team behind them from getting the press their desperate fans desire so much. It bothers them enough to post insults and putdowns on Packer threads. They think it does something besides make themselves feel better. Hilarious. After talking to my Viking fan neighbors I can tell you firsthand the Packers are driving them crazy.

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Yeah, because they won the first of those four games yesterday.

    Next?

  25. “The biggest difference among all NFCN teams and their expectations for success remains to be Aaron Rodgers. Nothing has changed. It’s still true.”

    Where have we heard that before? Oh yeah, I said it. I said it before the season began.

    ###

    It wasn’t true when you said at the start of the season and it’s even more obviously false now.

    At least to anyone that’s viewing the season objectively.

  27. Why no one takes Vikings fans seriously:

    Vikings score 1 TD and 3 Field goals vs the Redskins at home: We’re beating who is on the schedule, it doesn’t matter how it looks. They got the job done.

    Packers score 2 TDs and 2 Field goals vs the Redskins at home: The Packers are just bad.

  28. Translation: I’ve been through this all before, playoff hopefuls, embarrassing playoff exit, brag about my regular season stats.

  29. There is a reason so few coaches have a winning record the first year with the team.

    Right now his receiving corps is lackluster, and his reads are off. Getting the nuances of the system and being able to make your reads instinctively instead of thinking through everything takes time.

    His receiving corps looks a lot like Brady’s right now, and the results are similar. Can you believe at one time Rodgers had Driver, Jennings, Jordy, Cobb, and James Jones? GB is a far cry from that group currently.

    I think Rodgers decision making falls back on the McCarthy system Instinctively which is where the holding the ball looking off open short routes come from. My guess is a year in the system with some upgrades at receiver next year and they will improve greatly.

    I’ll take 10 wins and hopefully a playoff birth this year.

  30. I’m confused the Packers have a rookie coach that couldnt make the playoffs ciz no GB coach ever did it in the first year and all that “drama” people said they would be lucky to win 7 games this year and now that they have won 10 they are overrated?

    They are overachieving when you look at how most people had them at the start of the season with a young head coach and a young defense with over half the starters being in that system leas than years.. a lot of people have room to grow and I think its making rivals nervous.

  31. people said they would be lucky to win 7 games this year and now that they have won 10 they are overrated?
    ————————————

    3 games have been handed to the Packers either directly or indirectly by the officials this year. Along with a weak manipulated schedule the league welfare kids are doing about average.

  32. There’s only one thing worse than a football fan complaining about the referees, and that’s a football fan complaining about somebody else’s referees.

    It must like emotional abuse for Packer fans having to watch that offense
    Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Not when you’re looking at the Scoreboard.

  34. The Packers and coach Matt LaFleur have campaigned this year for the crowd at Lambeau Field to get more involved in games, and their push was justifiable. Though most NFL stadiums are loud, Lambeau is among the least loud.
