The Green Bay Packers are starting to look like the NFC New England Patriots. Sure they don't have the comparable rings that the Patriots do. But they have a hall of famer at quarterback and always go deep in the playoffs. But the Packers and Patriots are looking more and more similar because of their seemingly unwillingness to spend money or give up large draft capital. This team only develops within.
While we were all watching the election results on November 3, the NFL trade deadline came and went and the Packers still didn't pull the trigger on getting Aaron Rodgers more help at specialty positions. Most notably was the rumor that the Packers were interested in Houston Texans wide receiver Will Fuller but weren't willing to part with the high picks Houston was supposedly asking for. Fuller when healthy is a great receiver and certainly the best Texan's receiver after DeAndre Hopkins was traded to Arizona.
This move seemed like a no-brainer for the Packers and a small sign of gratitude to make it up to Rodgers for drafting a quarterback in the first round of the 2020 draft. Instead, he is left with a roster that is really struggling with injuries right now and wasn't really competitive against a 1-5 Minnesota Vikings team who handed the Packers their second loss. Rodgers seemed unstoppable to start the season but it's clear he'll need more playmakers if they are going to make a difference in this year's playoffs in a stacked NFC landscape. It's anyone's guess what Rodgers has to do to get some more reinforcements.
