Packers vs. Bears: 5 times Aaron Rodgers, Packers devastated Chicago

Packers vs. Bears: 5 times Aaron Rodgers, Packers devastated Chicago Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers have had some close calls against the Bears, resulting in a series of heartbreaking defeats for Chicago.

The Packers offense stalled out for the majority of its drives, setting up its only touchdown on a single 47-yard pass from Rodgers to Marquez Valdes-Scantling. The outlook seemed good coming out of training camp, despite Rodgers and some other offensive starters not playing a snap of preseason.

The Packers want to have a better offensive performance this week than they managed in their Rodgers wore a wristband play sheet designed to help communicate play calls faster than they Head coach Matt LaFleur didn’t say if Rodgers will wear the wristband during the game against the Vikings

The Green Bay Packers weren’t thrilled with how their offense performed in their 10-3 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 1, and they’re trying some new things to make it better now.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers tested a new strategy during practice Friday by wearing a wristband with coach Matt LaFleur’s lengthy playcalls on his wrist in a bid to speed up the tempo of the offense.

“It gets [the play] out of my mouth a lot faster, I’ll tell you that much,” LaFleur said Friday, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN. “So yeah, maybe it helps me get him the play a little bit quicker.”

LaFleur would not guarantee that Rodgers would use the cheat sheet in Sunday’s game. On Wednesday, however, Rodgers had said that increasing the tempo was a huge focus for the Packers during practices.

The charitable act was made through his Aaron Rodgers Foundation. The nearly 400 helmets are VICIS ZERO1 models, which have been rated the top helmet for three consecutive years by the NFL and NFLPA.

“We do have some long calls in the plan — that’s just the way the offense is,” Rodgers said. “There’s a number of checks for different plays. It’s getting that call in and repeating it and going out there and trying to execute as quickly as possible. The great thing about this offense and the communication is we had a great debrief Monday and Tuesday about everything. We made some subtle changes to hopefully help with some of that tempo.”

There was nothing excessively wrong with Rodgers’ performance in Week 1, as he went 18-of-30 for 203 yards and a touchdown. It was clear he and his teammates were still getting used to the offense, though, and moving a bit too deliberately to be truly effective. They were still better than the Bears, though, which was all that mattered.

Increased discipline, especially along the left side of the offensive line and at the tight end position, will increase the impact of an efficient rushing attack and allow Mayfield to look more like what we all expected coming into the season.
