The outlook is grim for Green Bay Packers this season.

The Packers (4-7) season can be considered dead, after the 27-17 loss to the Tennesse Titans.

But after Sunday night’s overtime 31-28 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers franchise quarterback, said proudly, “Biggest thing to remember is, we’re not dead!”

Here are three things Green Bay Packers need to unpack for next season.

Aaron needs to retire or move on from the Packers

Rodgers' high hopes of salvaging a losing record and slow start to the season are off to the wayside. The Packers will have to win out the rest of the year, to attempt any Hail Mary shot at the playoffs.

Aaron Rodgers looked "Regular" versus the Tenesse Titans Thursday night. A Titans defense that allows on average 300 passing yards a game is the second worst in the NFL.

Packers lack commitment to the run game

Rodgers had 48 combined dropbacks and scrambles in the Lions game. The Packers ran Jones and AJ Dillon a combined 21 times. They dismissed any thoughts of a run-heavy game plan long before Jones got hurt. Jones had 12 carries for 40 yards and AJ Dillon six attempts for 13 yards in the Thursday night game loss to the Titans.

Both Aaron Jones, and AJ Dillon are a dynamic duo. However, there is nothing to show for it, if they do not get handed the rock. No run game, expect another loss for the Packers this season.

Time to move on from defensive coordinator Joe Barry

Packers defense is loaded with All-Pro and Pro Bowl-level players like De’Vondre Campbell, Jaire Alexander, Kenny Clark and Rashan Gary just to name a few.

Time after time this season, Joe Barry has been unwilling to change his scheme, resulting in a disfunctional defense stacked with pro-bowl talent. Packers defensive coordinator Barry failed to coach four quarters of elite play with an elite unit.
