ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter had some sobering truth for the Green Bay Packers this week.

There’s been a lot of talk in recent months/weeks that Green Bay needs to add a wide receiver to their roster.

The Packers are 3-5 as we near the midpoint of the season and the biggest reason for their plight is a stagnant offense that seemingly has no identity.

Schefter acknowledged that adding a playmaker would be beneficial for Green Bay, but he added that one player can’t fix the Packers at this point.

“Here’s the thing on the Green Bay Packers,” said Schefter. “Everyone wants the Packers to go and make this big deal. Let’s keep in mind they’re 3-5. They’ve lost four straight games. I don’t care if they trade for Brandin Cooks, Jerry Rice, Robert Griffin III, you name the player — nobody is coming in that door to all of a sudden just miraculously cure everything that’s gone wrong in Green Bay this season.”

“Nobody is just going to turn around this team in a season that right now has gone awry,” added Schefter.

That’s tough to hear from Schefter, but he’s right.

Green Bay needs to make improvements to its roster and they need to try to make a playoff push. But unfortunately for the Packers, there’s only so much they can do at this point in the season. The problems we’ve seen from Green Bay in 2022 aren’t problems that are likely to be fixed mid-season.

The Packers can still make a run this season, but it’s starting to feel increasingly unlikely that Green Bay will be one of the last teams standing.
