Lil’ Wayne Declares the Packers Season is Dead

Chicago Bears

Things aren’t going well in Packerland.

Losing to the Lions on Sunday makes five consecutive losses for the Packers, who Football Outsiders has as having a better chance of a top-5 pick (11.3%) than they do of making the playoffs (10.2%).

Aaron Rodgers threw three interceptions on Sunday. The injuries are piling up as rapidly as the losses. And if things weren’t bad enough, Lil’ Wayne — one of Green Bay’s biggest supporters — is throwing in the towel on the season.

No, seriously:

You know things are going poorly when one of your team’s most prominent and vocal supporters is declaring your season dead after nine games. But can you blame Lil’ Wayne for feeling this way?

The Packers stink. They’ve scored fewer points than the Bears and have a worse point differential than the Chicago football team their fans love needling. Ranking 27th in points scored while allowing opponents to run all over you to the tune of 26th in yards and 24th in yards per rush isn’t a good look. Rodgers stinks, too. And I am absolutely reveling in Rodgers’ demise. He has gone six games without his passer rating surpassing 100. During the team’s five-game losing streak, Rodgers is completing just 61.7% of his passes. That’s spectacularly below average by Rodgers’ standards. As is the 84.4 passer rating during the losing skid. In press conferences and appearances with Pat McAfee’s show, Rodgers sounds defeated. And on Sundays, he looks washed.

He can’t even claim to be the best quarterback in the division any more.

That distinction belongs to the starting quarterback in Chicago:

As for Rodgers:

Life comes at you fast.

As Wayne might put it: Weezy F. Baby, the “F” stands for “Falling apart in the land of Cheesedoodles.”

Or something like that.
