"That's the reality of how we're going to approach it.Doug Baldwin Jersey"
McCarthy's measured approach to adversity has proven successful over the years. He helped navigate the Packers through a pair of two-game losing streaks en route to a Super Bowl championship in 2010. There also was a five-game stretch in 2013 when,James Harrison Jersey with Rodgers hurt, they failed to win a game (four losses, one tie) -- but that team rallied to make the playoffs.AJ McCarron Jersey
What's happened the past few weeks could be just one of those dips that most teams experience over 16 games. After all, of the three losses,Chandler Jones Jersey one came at Denver (now 7-2) and one at Carolina (9-0). But McCarthy mentioned perspective, and the perspective most of us held regarding his Packers is that they would be better than the Broncos and Panthers and everyone else.DeMarcus Ware Jersey
Yet, the typically well-oiled offensive machine isn't clicking. Rodgers has not consistently played at the amazing level that has hidden this team's flaws for years.Jason Witten Jersey He's been pretty darn good (six TDs, one INT during the losing streak), but he hasn't been able to make enough magic happen with receivers who are having a hard time routinely getting open.Rashad Jennings Jersey The running game also has gone back to being inconsistent.
Although the Packers played well enough defensively to hold the Lions to 18 points, they yielded late,Randall Cobb Jersey surrendering an 80-yard touchdown drive to allow Detroit to tally its decisive point total. Not enough plays have been made when they need to be made. The Packers,Kawann Short Jersey usually among the top takeaway teams in the NFL, generated 10 turnovers in the first six games. They've only managed three since.Chris Hogan Jersey
Green Bay can look at its schedule and see that, after Minnesota, things seemingly ease a bit. However, the game against Detroit was supposed to be a relative layup.
Looking at the schedule isn't the remedy for the Packers, anyway. Looking in the mirror is.
