“Obviously, playing the game,” Rogers said.
Rogers is unaware of how the last two seasons of the Packers unfolded and ended. Before losing in the NFC Championship Game, I challenged 13 to 3 in a row. Their defeat against the Buccaneers at home in January and how it ended (Matt LaFleur tried field goals up close instead of relying on quarterbacks to overcome the 8-point deficit. ) Contributed to the urgency faced by this team.
Whether or not the packers believe it, they are under pressure to reach the Super Bowl this season. They are in a dire salary cap situation, Adams seems eager to test a free agent, and Rogers will play where he will play next season through the concessions made in his contract. Has the power to determine. Rogers said last week he was “in a good headspace.”
“The feeling I get from the locker room energy isn’t pressure — it’s the focus,” Rogers said last week. “I think it’s the right perspective and the right type of focus.”
After the match on Sunday, Rogers suggested that he thought the packers were a little happy, believing that the packers would narrow down the team chased by Hurricane Aida. Saints bypassed Florida’s other NFL destinations, Tampa Bay and Miami, to Jacksonville. This is due to the relatively inaccessible location and heat and humidity that robbed the packers of their energy.
“We felt the hotter the better,” Peyton said.
However, according to The New Orleans Times-Picayune, the saint also had Rogers 3-4 and a 78.1 passer rating (ranked 32nd in the league last season) in a match in Florida. Did not escape from. Rogers, who was pulled for love with about 11 minutes remaining as the Packers faced a big deficit, is now 3-5 in Sunshine.
“It’s just one game,” said Rogers, who completed 15 of the 28 passes at 133 yards. “We played bad. We played bad.”
Packers may find comfort from precedent: In the ninth week of last season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost to Saints with the same score and then recovered to win the Super Bowl. Assuming Winston continues to play with discipline and calm and the packers are heading towards disappointment, it’s dangerous to give too much meaning to the first game. As Rogers might say, what happens next in all of them is a beautiful mystery.
