At 4-6-1 and now well behind Chicago and Minnesota in the NFC North, the Packers are all but mathematically eliminated from playoff contention in 2018.
On The Dan Patrick Show Monday morning, Dan and the crew wondered out loud who was more to blame for the failures of the team this year, and Peter King of the MMQB weighed in on the topic as well.
ESPN's Stephen A. Smith says the Packers are done, which is in reference to playoff hopes this year, but perhaps to this era of Green Bay football as well, since McCarthy's chances of staying on as coach appear to be low.
Other ESPN shows pointed the blame at a lack of talent on the roster, which has been exposed due to injuries this season.
Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe disagreed on blaming Rodgers for the struggles, but it's another example of having plenty of areas to blame for the record this year.
For those who are blaming Rodgers, such as Fox's First Things First, it's not so much that Rodgers has been bad, but merely average, when he's paid to be the best quarterback in the NFL.
Colin Cowherd has offered his take that Rodgers can't be considered among the greatest quarterbacks of all time based on his body of work.
Mike Florio pins the blame on playcalling, which has limited Aaron Rodgers this season.
