The Green Bay Packers have had quite the roller-coaster ride to kick off their NFL season. It’s been a mix of highs and lows, and as the dust settles, the Packers find themselves at an even 2-2 record after the first quarter of the season.
Head coach Matt LaFleur and his coaching staff have made some commendable moves during this period, but there have also been some rather perplexing decisions. In this article, our focus narrows down to the latter – those puzzling choices that leave fans and analysts alike scratching their heads.
