Aaron Rodgers on Packers loss: We damaged ourselves numerous times, myself included.

While Aaron Rodgers urged patience following the Vikings’ 23-7 victory in Minnesota. Matt LaFleur was executed for the Packers’ Week 1 performance. LaFleur provided a frank evaluation of his own performance as a play-caller in a game in which the Packers averaged 6.7 yards per pass attempt and looked to go away from the one effective unit — the run game — too early.

LaFleur stated, “Obviously, it wasn’t very good. I need to have a better strategy for the squad and prepare the men, so it starts with me. When it came to the distribution of the offensive, LaFleur even added a few more logs to his own fire.

LaFleur argued that it is unacceptable for Aaron Jones to finish a game with eight touches. But Rodgers, who was obviously agitated on the sideline as the Packers fumbled out of the gate offensively. He looked to have mellowed a bit by the time postgame came around.

Today we had a lot of opportunities, Aaron Rodgers said. Not taking anything away from (the Vikings’) defense, but we damaged ourselves several times, myself included. I had several chances to score far more than seven (points). There’s truth in what both men stated. In his largely outstanding Packers tenure, LaFleur has written more accurate game plans than not. But he surely won’t be framing this call sheet.

The Packers came out cautious and hesitant to push the Vikings’ coverage deep more than a couple of times early. Understandably, some of that may be attributed to the offensive line’s severe damage. But avoiding Jones and A.J. Dillon, his two finest playmakers in the contest, had the opposite effect. Total touches were 23 when it could have been closer to 40than 20.

Aaron Rodgers concurred on that subject. He recognized the positive aspects of what appeared to be a fairly lackluster performance when it mattered most.

I feel like we accomplished some nice things. Look, it’s tough to win in this league. And it’s particularly harder to win when you get in your own way too much. We may need to give Jonesy and Dillon a few extra touches. Aaron Rodgers did make sure to remind out that it was far from perfect, though.

There is plenty to be cleaned up all around, he stated, noting that (we) made a lot of mistakes around the perimeter” and “missed several throws.

He may have a point, though, given that the Packers’ struggles in Week 1 are nothing new. Last season’s odd season opener against the Saints was their worst game ever. They lost 38-3 and managed just 229 yards and 14 first downs, which is even worse than they did tonight.

To review, the Packers went on to win their final seven games, going 13-4 overall. And Rodgers won the AP NFL Most Valuable Player award for the second straight year. In Week 1, negative things occasionally occurred.

But unlike this team, the other had Davante Adams. The Packers’ wide receivers combined for 12 catches for 120 yards, most of which came after the Packers fell down by 17 points. While Adams was busy collecting 10 passes for 141 yards and a touchdown in his Raiders debut.

The day started off poorly as youngster Christian Watson dropped a ball that should have been a 75-yard touchdown. Drops will occur. It’s a feature of the game “Added Rodgers. We simply cannot have the mental aspects of life since doing so would be harmful to us.

Maybe LaFleur will reconsider his choice to rest his starters during the preseason, something he has done for the past two years. Taking that technique with a unit whose makeup has significantly altered is considerably different from how you did it last year.

We haven’t come out looking ready in the last two years, according to LaFleur. We will all undoubtedly examine ourselves and make the necessary improvements.

These adjustments may occur on September 18, when the Packers play the unbeaten Chicago Bears. Even after Chicago’s excellent defensive effort in Week 1, it’s important to remember that Rodgers has dominated the Bears recently.

Even with Sunday’s outcome being as dismal as it was. The Packers should be all right if this trend persists, similar to Green Bay’s poor start from a year ago.
