Julie Buehler on Overtime: Green Bay Packers Fans should be Concerned, and Not Relax
Sports analyst Julie Buehler joins Jeff Thurn on Wednesday’s edition of Overtime.
Buehler (@Julie_Buehler) hosts her radio show, "Buehler's Day Off" in California, and is also a sports analyst for KMIR and NBC-TV. Hear her and Jeff discuss the NFC West, Derek Carr, Michigan Wolverines football, and the Green Bay Packers.
Aaron Rodgers told Packers fans to 'relax.' Should they listen or be concerned about the team's 1-2 start?
"Absolutely not. They need to be concerned certainly. They played like ish, man. Oh, by the way, the Lions defense scored more points than the Packers offense did last week. I was really wondering what people were seeing when they said the Packers were a Super Bowl team. Or even a strong contender in the NFC. I just feel the NFC is so much stronger this year. The Saints, Bears, Lions got better. So many teams in the NFC got better in the offseason and I don't see really anyway that the Packers got better. Alright, they brought in (Julius) Peppers. But that and two buck will buy you a Starbucks. I mean he's on the tail end of his career. So, yeah I do think Packers faithful should be a little concerned. Maybe like Niner fans should be concerned that this might be a year that we might have to watch our rivals in the playoffs, while we are booking off tee times..."
