Well, it’s probably not Tolzien Time.

A month ago, losing to the Giants would have been inexcusable to the Packers. But the Giants are now on a four-game winning streak, and the Packers are down to their practice squad quarterback.

Without Aaron Rodgers leading this team, the offense goes nowhere. Eddie Lacy was held under two yards per carry, and despite Scott Tolzien throwing for over 300 yards, they scored only 13 points against the Giants thanks to Tolzien also contributing three interceptions.

In their current configuration, this team is going absolutely nowhere. If they can get Aaron Rodgers back relatively soon, and they haven’t already been buried in the division, they have a shot at charging back. But that’s a maybe for a few weeks from now. Right now, they’re a flawed team with a .500 record.

At least they get a home game against Minnesota next week.

Next Game: 11/24 vs. Minnesota (2-8)
