Stock up, stock down for Packers after crushing Week 1 loss to Saints
Stock up: Corey Bojorquez
Entering Week 1, the Packers made the decision to trade for punter Corey Bojorquez and move on from JK Scott, a former draft pick. It looked a good move at the time, and Bojorquez has made an impressive start.
Bojorquez was busier than many might’ve expected, punting four times. He put in a solid performance with a long of 59 yards, averaging 44 yards per punt. He landed one inside the Rams’ 20-yard line. Deonte Harris only returned one of the four punts, picking up 13 yards.
Overall, a nice debut for the Packers’ new punter.
Stock down: Aaron Rodgers
You couldn’t have asked for a much worse performance from the reigning MVP than the one we saw on Sunday. Aaron Rodgers looked like he was back to his 2018 form, holding onto the ball too long and waiting for a big shot downfield to develop.
Not only did the Packers only score three points, but Rodgers threw a rare red-zone interception then launched a deep ball into double coverage which got what it deserved.
An uncharacteristic performance from the three-time MVP. And after being under the spotlight all summer and skipping the offseason program, he’s going to get a fair bit of criticism for this performance.
Hopefully we see Revenge Rodgers against Detroit.
