Sometimes, brutal honesty is necessary. That’s clearly the feeling of Green Bay Packers cornerback Rasul Douglas, who provided some hilarious, yet truthful, comments on his team’s struggles recently.
Reporter Kassidy Hill of the Journal Sentinel asked Douglas if the schedule make-up played any role in Green Bay’s recent woes. The cornerback dismissed the notion … and put it pretty simply.
“We’ve been losing because we’ve been losing, if that’s what you’re asking,” Douglas said. “We suck because we suck. “It’s got nothing to do with London. It’s just, we’re not executing. We keep doing the same thing every week. We play two (quarters) of football, never four.”
Tell us how you really feel, Mr. Douglas.
But who can blame his honesty? Green Bay is currently in the middle of a five-game losing streak. The team sits 3-6 on the year with the last victory coming in early October.
The Packers hit rock bottom on Sunday, falling 15-9 to the Detroit Lions. Prior to Sunday’s game, the Lions had just one win during the 2022 season.
Packers Teammates Reportedly Getting Upset with Aaron Rodgers
“That some of the young wide receivers have been painted as scapegoats for the Packers’ problems, despite Aaron Rodgers’ absence during OTAs, which isn’t sitting well with some there,” ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler wrote.
Rodgers hasn’t shied away from talking about some of the shortcomings of the young receivers this season. He’s also been critical of the offensive play-calling.
Only one thing can solve some of the issues in Green Bay: winning. It won’t come easy, though, as the Packers host the Dallas Cowboys (6-2) on Sunday.
