  • Backup quarterback Jordan Love also echoed Rodgers’ sentiments at the meeting.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers recently drew attention after publicly criticizing his wide receivers following careless starts in Tuesday’s joint practice with the New Orleans Saints and the preseason opener against the San Francisco. 49ers.

‘Unfortunately, some of the same guys…repeat mistakes [are] a problem, so we need to clean those things up a bit. Young guys, especially young receivers, we have to be a lot more consistent.’ Rodgers said Tuesday.

‘A lot of crashes, a lot of bad route decisions, running the wrong route. We have to improve in that area. But I felt like the line for the most part held up pretty well, which was good to see.’

Rodgers quickly followed up that criticism with action by taking extra time to talk to his receivers about how to improve.

“He was really giving us advice,” rookie catcher Samori Toure said.

“Basically letting us know that Green Bay’s receiving corps has always held themselves to a very high standard. All the legends that have passed through here. It’s just that we continue with that standard and take a step forward’.

Fellow rookie Romeo Doubs, who has been one of the standouts of Packers camp, echoed similar sentiments.

“Aaron talked to us about his likes and dislikes, just based on concepts or what he sees,” Doubs said. “He just wants us to see what he sees, so we can react faster, play faster and be able to dominate and still be who we are.”

Packers backup quarterback Jordan Love was also involved in the discussions with Green Bay’s young wide receivers, but admitted it was Rodgers who took the lead.

“I’m trying to echo the same message that he is just to get everyone on the same page,” Love said.

“But yeah, I think it’s a little bit different coming from Aaron, the way he demands it. They admire Aaron a little differently. He obviously has a lot of experience and a lot more knowledge than I do. But I think we all demand the same thing. The receivers know what they have to do and everyone is on the same page.’

What the Packers’ offense looks like when the regular season begins will be one of the key things most fans watch after the team’s tumultuous offseason.

Young wide receivers and the passing game will be especially under the microscope after the team traded superstar Devante Adams and decided to replace him with young options in the middle and late rounds of the draft, rather than a bona fide replacement. .
