Crazy stat highlights how Packers have failed Aaron Rodgers

The Green Bay Packers have failed Aaron Rodgers and continued to fail him during the 2020 NFL Draft by stunningly refusing to draft a single receiver.

Now comes a stunning stat that highlights this to a T.

Rodgers has thrown just one career touchdown pass to a first-round pick — a wild stat that is even more incredible when you realize what kind of support other top quarterbacks have gotten over the years.

Most mock drafts pegged Green Bay as a team that would take full advantage of what has been described as a legendary wide receiver draft class. Instead, the Packers eschewed the position entirely.

Fans were livid at the team’s draft strategy last weekend.

It started when, for the first time since taking Rodgers in 2005, the team finally drafted a skill-position offensive player in the first round — quarterback Jordan Love.

From there, the frustration only mounted as time after time the Packers took other positions, further amplifying the team’s talent void at receiver (outside of Davante Adams).

No wonder some around the league believe Rodgers will ultimately be traded.
