Packers: From Playoff Contender to Mediocrity – How Did We Get Here?

Optimism. It’s a word that fans use to keep themselves positive about their team. Unfortunately, the Packers fanbase (I’m guilty) had used it for the last few seasons.

It was Sunday afternoon after the first loss of the season. Losing to the Redskins 28-17 on a disgustingly rainy day in Washington, DC. Once again Clay Matthews’ clean tackling was flagged and the flaws of the Packers were shadowed once again. Don’t believe me? Listened to Packers postgame where the first thirty minutes were […]
