It has been a struggle for the Green Bay Packers’ offense so far this year.
Perhaps their best game came against the Minnesota Vikings and that game ended in a tie.
The Packers’ offense has been slow starting. They’ve left points on the field. There have been errant throws and dropped passes aplenty. There has been griping about play calling. There’s been plenty of sacks and inopportune turnovers.
Still, quarterback Aaron Rodgers says the team’s offense is close to putting it all together.
“It’s not quite the standard we’ve set here over the years. The type of offense we think we can have coming out of training camp. I told you guys week 1, it’s going to be a work in progress. I don’t feel like we’re far off. I feel kind of like in Washington a couple years ago. We were very close to get things going. Like I said then, I’ll say again now, I feel like if we can get off to a better start on offense it makes the entire squad play with a different type of confidence.”
It’s interesting that Rodgers brings up that Washington game. The Packers lost that game 42-24. There were signs that the offense was finally coming around, though. The loss dropped the Packers to 4-6 and then Rodgers made his run the table comment.
After that, the offense started hitting on all cylinders.
It remains to be seen how close the Packers are to putting it together this year. There are a lot of issues to fix.
If Rodgers feels confident it’s coming around, we’ll take that, however. He’s said it before and he was right. So you’d think he’d know better than anyone.
