The Green Bay Packers’ season hasn’t gone to plan, but there is still a lot to be thankful for in 2022.
The Green Bay Packers enter Thanksgiving needing a miracle to make the playoffs.
It’s fair to say this season has been a disaster for Matt LaFleur’s team, especially after winning three of its four games before the London trip.
But there’s still a lot to be thankful for.
Packers can be thankful for Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs
Due to injury, we haven’t got to see Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs on the field together too often this season, but both players have shown their potential when healthy.
Watson struggled with drops early in the year but has made huge improvements in recent weeks. The second-round pick has caught eight passes for 155 yards and five touchdowns in the past two games.
Before injury, Doubs had also shown a ton of potential. He can win contested catches and knows how to find the end zone. Doubs has 314 yards and three touchdowns in 2022.
Together, they can form an excellent wide receiver duo in the coming seasons.
Packers can be thankful for Quay Walker
It’s too early to call Green Bay’s first-round pick a home run, but Quay Walker has shown star potential in his rookie season.
Walker has shown the ability to play on all three downs, making 82 tackles, four tackles for loss, half a sack, three quarterback hits, and three pass defenses in 11 games. He has also forced two fumbles.
And the best part is that Walker is nowhere near the player he can become. As he gains more experience, he can become an All-Pro linebacker.
Packers can be thankful they still have a chance in 2022
Things haven’t gone well this season and the Packers need to be almost perfect the rest of the way. However, the NFC has been inconsistent, keeping Green Bay in the mix.
With a run of wins and some luck, the Packers can force their way back into the playoff picture.
Having lost seven games, it could have already been over. But the Packers remain alive and still have a chance, which is a reason to be thankful.
