It is no secret that the Packers’ offense struggled in week one. At times it was pretty shocking to see the lack of ball movement and/or execution. Specifically on plays that seemed so easy last year. Davante Adams in Green Bay or not, Aaron Rodgers has been slinging the ball downfield for more than a decade… no matter who was lined up at wide receiver. Sunday’s showcase vs the Vikings seemed to feature Aaron Rodgers hesitating to throw the ball deep at times. After the game Matt LaFleur was adamant on a new plan of attack going forward.
Packers’ Best Playmakers Need The Ball In Their Hands:
After the game Matt LaFleur mentioned two guys that absolutely needed to touch the ball more:
When two of your best players are your running backs and get 23 total touches, that’s not good enough,” LaFleur said. “We need to get them the ball more, especially in the run game. I thought we were running the ball pretty efficiently. We had a couple of explosive runs. I love the energy and effort they bring and certainly want to get them more involved and, quite frankly, take a little bit of pressure off everybody else.”
