Packers' Rodgers Comments on Receiving Core After Week 1 Loss

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was visibly upset at times during the team's week one loss to the Minnesota Vikings. The frustration poured through as the season opener was a struggle for the entire team, however specifically for the wide receiving core. 

It was the offense's first game without Davante Adams and it showed as the Pack lost to the Minnesota Vikings 23-7. Rodgers met with the media after the game and had this to say about the outlook on this season:

We gotta have patience with those guys; they're young. There's going to be drops. Hate to see it on the first play, but there's going to be drops.

Rodgers was referring to wide receiver Christian Watson, who was wide open on the very first offensive play for the Packers and could have pulled off a 75-yard touchdown. Instead, this happened...

Rodgers finished with 195 yards and zero touchdowns to open the season. This to go along with his first interception against a divisional opponent since 2019. So it wasn't just the wide receiver's fault....
