The Green Bay Packers didn’t get off to the start they had hoped for in 2012. The Packers are 0-1 after a loss in the season opener to the San Francisco 49ers where the Packers were dominated on both sides of the ball. It was a big statement for the 49ers in the win but the Packers do not seem concerned about the loss.
Packers signal-caller Aaron Rodgers said on the NFL Network that the team has nothing to worry about despite the loss.
“It’s one game. It’s a new season. We played a good opponent. They beat us,” Rodgers said. “We’re not worried about that. We’re trying to get better every week but there’s no panic in the locker room.”
Rodgers was asked if the team’s veterans tried to gather everyone in the locker room in an effort to regroup.
Rodgers responded, “No, because that would be a freakout. There’s no freakout going on. We want to play better. We want to win. It’s just one game.”
It is still early in the season and the Packers are right by taking the season one game at a time. They do, however, have to be worried about the ease in which the 49ers seemed to beat them.
Green Bay plays their NFC North rivals the Chicago Bears in primetime on Thursday Night Football and a loss could then spark some concern in the locker room. The Packers have high hopes for the 2012 season and falling two games back in the NFC North with an 0-2 start is not a good way to get things rolling.
