For most of this decade, the Green Bay Packers have been like a tsunami-proof house. They could withstand anything. Even when Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone early in the 2013 season, no Packer’s fan gave up. They still have that foundation. They can figure this out. We had the same attitude after Jordy Nelson tore his ACL in the preseason last year. They were able to figure it out and make the playoffs. That same attitude kicked in after the Packers struggled to start the 2016 season. Everyone says, “we’re going to be okay. They’ve been here before. They’ll figure it out.”
