NFL Network analyst Marshall Faulk did a good imitation of a wind sock Thursday evening.
When the Packers were 1-2, before Green Bay played Chicago, Faulk was all over the Packers’ chances going forward.
“They’re in trouble,” Faulk said last Sunday morning. “And it all starts up front. If you watch Aaron Rodgers, he’s just not trusting the guys up front. The ball, when it comes out, it doesn’t look like his eyes are downfield. I’m telling you, I’m worried about this team.
“As soon as your quarterback starts talking to fans, oh boy,” Faulk said, referring th Rodgers “relax” mantra.
Then the Packers throttled the Bears. And Rodgers was not hit at all during the game at Soldier Field. His uniform was as clean at the end of the game as it was when it started.
So what say you now, Doctor Doom?
Host of “NFL Total Access Kickoff,” Rich Eisen asked Faulk if the Packers were back on track.
“They might be,” Faulk said.
Faulk went on to say the offensive line of the Packers needs to prove its ability to protect Rodgers.
“If they can protect Aaron Rodgers and allow him to throw the ball down the field, this game will not even be a contest,” Faulk said. “But if they do not, and Minnesota can come in here and run the football, boy we are going to have ourselves a good game tonight.”
