Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Green Bay Packers fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to participate in the weekly emailed surveys.
We have two major questions for you this week. Let’s get into it.
Question 1: When will the Packers’ next win come?
Here are the next four games that the Packers are set to play:
After that, the schedule gets even tougher with back-to-back games against the Lions and Chiefs, taking us to a Week 14 matchup with the Giants. With all that in mind: When is the next time that the Packers will come out as victors?
If it’s not this weekend against the Rams, who very well might start Brett Rypien under center, I think there’s a real chance that the team ends up going into the second week of December with a 2-10 record and a nine-game losing streak. To me, this is the week the team needs to get a win, but I want to hear what you all have to say about the position the Packers are in.
Question 2: How do you feel about the Rashan Gary extension?
This one is simple: Positive, negative or neutral?
Personally, I think Packers fans should be excited about the contract that Gary signed. Not only is he a good player, but the dollar figure is about as good for the team’s cap situation as you could possibly ask for.
Gary’s roster bonus will likely be converted into a signing bonus next offseason, which means that the team will only have to carry about a $12 million cap hit for him in 2024. Over the first three years of his contract, he’s only owed $65.5 million, which is nowhere close to the $98.6 million that Nick Bosa received. Gary got paid like he was a top pass-rusher in the 2020 market, not one who was seeking out Bosa or T.J. Watt money. For Green Bay, that could wind up being quite a steal.
