Despite the Green Bay Packers getting the win, Aaron Rodgers has fallen a few spots in FanSided’s quarterback rankings for Week 4.
In the first quarter, it looked like Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers were going to have a huge game.
However, after throwing touchdown passes on the Packers’ opening two drives against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, life became difficult for Green Bay’s offense.
They put up 14 points on the opening two possessions but wouldn’t score another point the rest of the way.
Packers: Aaron Rodgers seventh in FanSided QB rankings
Rodgers has made a solid start to the season, but he isn’t yet at his MVP best. At least not consistently.
FanSided’s Matt Verderame has put together his updated NFL QB rankings for Week 4, and Rodgers is down to seventh, having been fourth last week.
“Rodgers, like Brady, doesn’t have the weapons. That said, he’s managing the game, and you can bet he’ll get rolling soon,” wrote Verderame.
It’s hard to disagree with any of that.
Rodgers is having to adjust to a new-look offense in 2022. The Packers lost Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Equanimeous St. Brown in the offseason.
Allen Lazard has only recently returned from injury, and Rodgers is still building a connection with rookie receivers Romeo Doubs and Christian Watson. Watson didn’t play in Week 3 due to injury.
But we have seen signs of greatness from this offense. They looked unstoppable in the opening quarter against a talented Buccaneers defense.
Doubs led the team in receiving, catching all eight of his targets for 73 yards and a touchdown.
As Verderame notes, it won’t be long until Rodgers is back to his best. He certainly hasn’t been playing bad football — far from it — but he has two interceptions in the opening three games.
It won’t be long before Rodgers is rising back up the QB rankings.
