Week 2 APC FanPulse: Packers fans’ confidence slips a bit after Rodgers injury

The fact that it’s just a sprained knee keeps our group pretty optimistic overall, however.

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Packers fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

How confident are you in the direction of the team?

Leading into week one, Green Bay Packers fans were extremely confident in the team’s overall direction. In fact, a whopping 98% of respondents in our FanPulse survey replied with “confident” or “very confident” before the season opener.

Then, Bears defensive lineman Roy Robertson-Harris fell on Aaron Rodgers’ leg and DeShone Kizer nearly lost the game on his own with two catastrophic turnovers. Rodgers returned with a sprained knee, sparking a 20-point comeback for a 24-23 Packers victory, but that injury is hanging like a threatening rain cloud over the Packers’ season.

Overall, Packers fans are still feeling positive. After all, Rodgers isn’t done for the year and still looks like a good bet to play on Sunday. But confidence is down a bit from last week as shown below.

Last week: 98 percent confidence

Will the Packers win or lose in Week 2?

Packers and Vikings fans predictably are confident in their own teams this week, but with no point spread, both sides see a pretty tight game at Lambeau Field this week:

Odds: Push

Daily Norseman FanPulse: Vikings by 5
Acme Packing Company FanPulse: Packers by 1

Other than QB, what is most valuable to an NFL offense?

This survey pulls all of the FanPulse respondents from across SB Nation together, and in this writer’s opinion, more than half of those surveyed got the answer right. Even more important for the Packers is that they have one of the very best left tackles in the NFL in David Bakhtiari.

My question is this: who voted for running back here? And more to the point, were there any Packers fans who voted for that position? If so, we’d love to hear why you did in the comments.
