Falcons can win NFC South with Desmond Ridder, says Packers HOFer LeRoy Butler


Dukes & Bell chatted with Green Bay Packers Hall-Of-Famer LeRoy Butler ahead of their Week 2 matchup in Atlanta on September 17th. Butler had high praise for Head Coach Arthur Smith, QB Desmond Ridder and their ability to succeed next season.

“If you just give the ball to (Bijan) Robinson, play good defense, you can win the NFC South. It’s wide open. That’s the way it is. If you run the ball and play good defense you’ll be in every game. Ridder is going to surprise a lot of people. You don’t need to be All-Pro and Pro Bowl. Just listen to the coach and don’t turn the ball over you’ll be in mostly every game,” Butler explained.

The Packers will be bringing in their own new QB in Jordan Love after Aaron Rodger’s took his talents to the New York Jets this offseason.
