NFL: The Green Bay Packers are headed into an extremely interesting 2023 season. In just a few short months the team underwent major changes that ushered in a new era. Of course, the most significant change being moving on from Aaron Rodgers and committing to fourth-year quarterback Jordan Love. The offense figures to look much different going forward. Packers president Mark Murphy commented specifically on that change.
Green Bay Packers President Talks About The Changes On Offense Going Into 2023 (NFL)
Packers President Mark Murphy received an overwhelmingly positive response to his mention of quarterback Jordan Love from the 7,825 people who gathered inside Lambeau Field for the team’s annual shareholders meeting Monday. Murphy went on to talk about how the offense will look different in 2023:
“I have a lot of confidence in Matt,” Murphy said. “I think you’ll see, our defense probably will have to carry us a little bit in the early season. I think offensively, you’re going to see probably a little bit more of Matt’s true offense.
“Obviously when you have a great quarterback like Aaron and somebody that has been in the league as long as he has, we gave him the flexibility to change plays and get in and out of things (which) really helped us. But I would anticipate a strong running game and play action off that.”
What Exactly Does This Mean For The Packers Offense In 2023?
In 2008 (Aaron Rodgers’ first year starting) the Packers ranked ninth in the NFL in total pass attempts (541). Additionally, they ranked 14th in the NFL in rushing attempts with 437. Obviously the 2008 Packers team is much different than the one heading into 2023, however, they still let Aaron Rodgers rip it in his first year starting. While the Packers figure to be “run heavy” this year, I would still anticipate Jordan Love getting plenty of chances to show what he can do.
President Mark Murphy also said that Jordan Love has half a season to prove to the team he’s the future of the Packers at quarterback. Murphy said that’s how long it took the Packers to know Aaron Rodgers was the guy to lead the team long-term after Brett Favre. If Love isn’t proving his worth by midseason, the Packers need to come up with a plan to land another quarterback. In order to figure that out, they’ll need to throw the ball 20-30 times a game to get a real idea.
