Aaron Rodgers didn’t have to clear his throat on the afternoon of Nov. 23, with a gaggle of reporters gathered around him. Three days earlier, Rodgers and the Packers had gone to FedEx Field and been obliterated by the Redskins, 42-24. It dropped their record to 4-6. Whispers had started about coach Mike McCarthy’s job security. And also about whether Rodgers had started slipping a little bit himself.
Maybe an assault of clichés was the order of the day.
Or maybe this: “I feel like we can run the table, I really do,” Rodgers said that day, first to ESPN. “The offense is starting to click a little bit more, we’ve just got to put together a game where we’re more consistent from the first snap to the last. We’ve been, I think, getting closer to that.”
The quote was longer. The message was simpler: hop on-board.
That was 46 days ago. The Packers have yet to lose again.
