This struggling offense has gotten most of the Green Bay Packers’ attention, but there are reportedly some issues on the defensive end as well.

“According to sources close to members of the Packers defense, players are frustrated with the defensive scheme and play, ‘ reported ESPN’s Rob Dmowski. “One source said, ‘Confidence in the defensive scheme and so-called stuff is going down and that’s causing the overall disappointment in the defense.’ Another source confirmed that sentiment.” The report comes after a team presumed to be a Super Bowl contender lost its fourth straight. this season.
