Packers’ Postseason Prospects Crumble

Local News

The first Packers Sunday snowfall of the season had fans ready to string some wins together, but it only served to slipped the team up as the losing skid continues.

“When you have this unfair weather,” said Joe, a Packers fan from Milwaukee. “Especially for a southern team like Arizona, our winning percentage is just going to go up, so that’s going to be exciting, too.”

“Coming to cold Lambeau Field, they’re going to be out of their element and this is our element,” said Bart, a fan who’s tailgated through worse. “So, we’re going to take care of business today.”

And just a few hours later, Packers fans are packing their bags.

“Feels like we need a new offense,” said Dan, who came all the way from Colorado to watch the game. “Something that will utilize Aaron (Rodgers) all the way.”

“I think we’re out,” said Larry, a traveling Packers fan from Texas. “I mean, We needed a lot of help if we won out from here on. And we didn’t, so I think it’s over.”

Following a disappointing game in a disappointing season, this is Titletown. And there’s always that glimmer of hope.

“We’ve got a lot of changes in personnel because we’re three-deep in a lot of the positions,” said Megan, a Packers Diehard. “So, we’ve got to work with what we’ve got before we start making major head-coaching decisions.”

Others interpret that hope a little differently.

“Honestly, it’d be best if we just lose out to get the best draft pick we can, get a new coach, get some better players in and, hopefully, next year go for it,” said Dan.

Change this, change that–At the end of the day, this is simply one of those seasons.

“Every time we have Aaron Rodgers, we should go to the SuperBowl,” said Larry. “But we’re not going this year. I mean, it’s just plain and simple. There’s just something missing from the team this year.”

Snow wasn’t all that was falling–Ticket prices for today’s game reached as low as $19 on TicketMaster as the losses keep piling up.
