Michael Phelps, the legendary Olympic swimmer, is the best of the best. As the most decorated Olympian in history, he is nothing short of an American legend.

His interest in alternative medication, and his infamous snub of the COVID-19 vaccination, have been the talk of the town for as long as one can remember. But what is undeniable is his ability to twist an opponent’s defense. His sharp mind has allowed him to time and again read and react to defensive formations, often running circles around defenders trying to stop his plays.

However, this season hasn’t been the best for the Packers‘ offensive maestro. Last week, the New York Giants mounted a comeback victory, the Packers conceding 14 points in the 4th quarter alone. And the Packers’ first game saw the Minnesota Vikings delivering a crushing 23-7 defeat.
