The Green Bay Packers have the pieces for an explosive offense this season. Despite that notion, Aaron Rodgers, coming back or not, will play a huge factor for the offense’s success. If Rodgers does comeback to the Packers the possibilities are endless for the offense. But, if he does indeed return, here are four bold predictions for the Packers’ offense this season.
Packers Will Have One of the Best Receiving Corps’ In the NFL
The Packers receiving corps is pretty deep this year, even with having no household names outside of Davante Adams. Each player in the group brings a certain element to the offense that can help attack opposing defenses.
One thing that the Packers clearly like with their receivers is their size advantage and their ability to win in jump ball scenarios. They have more options than last season to use in the slot positoin in (now healthy) Equanimeous St. Brown and rookie Amari Rodgers. Veteran receiver Devin Funchess looks motivated to contribute for the team this season after opting out due to COVID-19 last year. Despite the lack of name recognition, the Packers will have one of the best receiving corps’ in the NFL.
The Packers Will Have The NFL’s Top Rushing Attack
If Aaron Rodgers comes back, it will certainly help the running game.
Why the running game and not the passing game?
With Rodgers, opposing defenses will be focused on stopping the passing attack first. Like previously stated, the passing game will still be lethal. But, with defenses focused on stopping Rodgers, Aaron Jones, AJ Dillion, and Kylin Hill will face light defensive boxes.
Without question, the leading running back is Aaron Jones who is one of the best running backs in the NFL. AJ Dillion will be a third-down/power running back behind Jones along with Kylin Hill being the Packers passing/third down running back. With this group, the Packers will have the best rushing attack in the NFL this season to coincide with their elite passing game.
Best Tight End Group In the NFL?
The tight end group for the Packers is really deep this year. This is clearly the best group they have had in over a decade.
It starts with Robert Tonyan, who tied Travis Kelce to lead all tight ends in touchdown catches in 2020. Then, there is the veteran leader in Marcedes Lewis, arguably the best blocking tight end in NFL and a key piece to the Packers offense. Josiah Deguara will look to bounce back after tearing his ACL both at tight end and fullback. Jace Sternberger will look to break out in a crucial year for him, and second year player Dominique Daffney will have opportunities to contribute. This will be the best tight end group in the NFL.
The Packers Will Have the Best Offensive Line in the NFL
Per usual, the Packers are in the conversation when it comes to having the best offensive line in the NFL. In fact, they were the second-ranked offensive line last year behind only the Cleveland Browns. They can have the best offensive line this year despite a few question marks on the depth chart.
The Packers seem to have found a replacement at center in Josh Myers. He will replace all-pro center Corey Linsely, who departed in free agency this offseason. In addition to the Myers pick, the Packers went heavy on offensive linemen in the draft this year to build up depth that was needed last season. This depth will be crucial if all-pro left tackle David Bahktiari misses time to fully recover from his ACL injury. The Packers have all of the right pieces to have the best offensive line this season.
