The Green Bay Packers are taking shots from all sides after their 34-20 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. For the most part, the criticism has been rightfully aimed at Joe Barry’s defense, which got shredded by Baker Mayfield and made him the first opposing player to earn a perfect passer rating of 158.3 at Lambeau Field.

One of the funniest and most depressing jabs came from the king of satire news, The Onion, who tweeted about the Packers' soft secondary defense.

The link leads to an empty page, but the headline and picture speak volumes. The picture of Carrington Valentine playing zone coverage in space is the perfect representation of what Packers fans have had to endure week after week this season.

In case watching his defense isn’t enough pain for Packers fans, The Onion arrives just in time to turn the knife.
