GREEN BAY, Wis. - Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers struggled mightily against the New Orleans Saints in a 38-3 beatdown on Sunday afternoon.

Rodgers completed 15 of 28 passes and finished with 133 passing yards and two interceptions.
Former NFL quarterback Carson Palmer made an appearance on "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" on Monday and talked about Rodgers’ performance against the Saints.

"Aaron looked uncomfortable," Palmer said during the TV segment. "He looked like he had cement boots on at times. Something was holding him back and holding him down."
Rodgers and the Packers had an offseason for the ages.
The veteran quarterback talked about being unhappy in Green Bay, and since he was away from the team for most of training camp, the team’s rust definitely showed during the first game of the season.
