Three bold predictions for the Packers offense in 2020.
We saw some outstanding moments on both sides of the ball for the Green Bay Packers in 2020 as they made their return to the playoffs with a 13-win season. Matt LaFleur, hired for his work as an offensive coach, looked to help things get back on track on this side of the ball.
In truth, it was an up-and-down year for the offense. That’s no surprise as a change of system can take time to learn and gain familiarity with. Aaron Rodgers, in particular, was transitioning from an entire career in Mike McCarthy’s system to something completely new.
While the Packers won lots of games and the offense, at times, looked dominant, the numbers weren’t all that great. Green Bay ranked 18th in total offense, 17th in passing offense, 15th in rushing offense, and 15th in points scored per game. There wasn’t one area where this offense dominated all season.
Entering year two under LaFleur should help. The familiarity with the scheme, and the time Rodgers spent working with LaFleur, should help lead to more success this season. Can they turn those moments of unstoppable play into complete performances?
But what should we expect from LaFleur’s offense this year? Here are my three bold predictions from the Packers offense in 2020.
