How can the Green Bay Packers fix their anaemic offense? Here’s five things they must do.
There’s been plenty of analysis on why the Green Bay Packers struggled offensively in 2015. In reality, there were a number of factors ranging from Jordy Nelson’s injury, Eddie Lacy’s decline in production and a lack of depth along the offensive line.
Now it’s time to talk about the fix. Nelson’s return will be a welcomed sight at training camp, and his presence at wide receiver will not only give Aaron Rodgers his favorite target, but will also make the life of his fellow wideouts that much easier. But it’s going to take more than simply relying on Nelson to fix all that ailed this offense.
The Packers can make moves this offseason that will put the offense back on track as one of the league’s best. Mike McCarthy and his coaching staff will be evaluating everything in great detail, from Rodgers’ protection to his receivers’ ability to get separation. Everything will go under the microscope and the actions that take place this offseason will be a direct result of that.
McCarthy has promised the offense will play at a much higher level in 2016. Here’s how he can make good on it.
