The Packers have been struggling on offense and Aaron Rodgers thinks that it might be time to shake things up.
Green Bay has scored four offensive touchdowns in its last three games and the two-time MVP might start taking a few more chances.
“Maybe I have to adjust my mindset and kind of let it fly a little more because we’ve had some success doing that,” said Rodgers via PackersNews.com,“Throwing the ball down the field, adjusting some routes, making some scramble adjustments and playing a little looser because the urgency is up in those moments. Hopefully, we can start the game in that mindset collectively and put together a better performance.”
In his last four games Rodgers has averaged 5.9 yards per pass attempt. That’s well below the NFL average of 7.1 yards and way down from Rodgers’ career average of 8.0 per attempt.
“This is the most frustrated I’ve ever seen him,” McCarthy said.
Rodgers indicated that it was getting to the point of desperation.
“Whatever it takes to win,” Rodgers said. “At this point we haven’t been very consistent in any capacity on offense, so if it means being a little riskier with the ball with a bigger reward on the back end, that’s something you’ve got to think about.”
A frustrated Rodgers may be a good thing for the Redskins. He is not exactly working with a high-level group of targets with slot receiver Randall Cobb being the best of a bunch that includes tight end Richard Rodgers and outside receivers James Jones and Davante Adams. If he throws some balls up for grabs the Redskins secondary might be in position to grab a few.
