3. How prolific will the offense be?
Many wonder why this question is even being asked? With Rodgers at quarterback for all (or even close to) 16 games, the offense should be great. But Green Bay has added a lot of new members to the offensive arsenal that could hinder them.
The biggest free agency move the team made on offense was the signing of tight end Jimmy Graham. Adding Graham is obviously huge because Rodgers has never had this level of talent at the tight end position.
Chemistry between a quarterback and tight end is a critical thing. Rodgers and Graham are both elite at what they do, so developing chemistry shouldn’t be a problem. Yet, how fast that chemistry will develop is still a question mark.
In addition, Green Bay did draft three wide receivers in the draft who could see a decent amount of playing time this season. The biggest quote coming out of Green Bay this week was Rodgers ripping the receivers for their effort in practice. That’s a bad sign of cohesion heading into the first preseason game versus the Titans.
On top of that, Ty Montgomery brings quickness to the backfield and is a mismatch against linebackers in the passing game. New offensive coordinator Joe Philbin has returned to Green Bay with the task of bringing all these new pieces together to be a premier offense.
