Aaron Rodgers has been a stalwart for the Packers since he took the helm after the exit of Brett Favre. Early in his career, he got a Super Bowl, but he hasn’t been back since. While the defense has taken (rightly so at times) much of the heat, there is one aspect of the Packers offensive attack that is a bit uncertain going into the 2017 season and which could be important to their chances of going the distance this time.

Down the stretch in 2016, the Packers' offense was one of the most dynamic in the league. The fail in Atlanta signaled the need for better defense as much as anything else. The offense faltered also, and pass protection won't come easy against the Falcons this year either. With the Seahawks week one and the Falcons week two, there is a need for an upgrade in pass protection and emphasize the short pass to get Aaron Rodgers going early.

Last year's running back situation left the Packers' attempts to establish the running game, at times, a crap-shoot. With Starks out and Lacy down for the count, the team really had a revolving door until Ty Montgomery stepped in and Aaron Ripkowski came on strong. Attempts to achieve greater run/pass balance looked more forced than anything. Now without Lacy, the Packers have a bevy of rookies, one of whom will be slated for the number two spot behind Monty. How do they stack up? We will discover that here. (more…)
