Rodgers demands more offensive consistency

In four drives during their loss Sunday to the San Francisco 49ers, the Green Bay Packers put up 28 points.

In their nine other drives, they had two turnovers, six three-and-outs and just four first downs.

That won't cut it in the eyes of Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.

"We've got to be more consistent, help our defense out a little bit," said Rodgers on Wednesday.

"We lost the time of possession pretty significantly (38:35 for San Francisco, 21:25 for Green Bay).  That puts a stress on our defense."

"It was the good with the bad.  We've got to clean that up."

Rodgers explained that the Packers have to at least help the defense when it comes to field position and force the opponent's offense deep in their own territory.

"One first down a series is kind of the bare minimum for us.  You do that, you can semi-change field position.  We didn't do a good job at that."
