Packers first-team offense struggles
While it was a good day for Jordan Love, the same can’t be said of the first-team offense.
According to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic, on the opening 16 plays, there were zero completions and Aaron Rodgers was intercepted.
It’s to be expected. We’ve seen this at times from the offense this summer.
Rodgers is still building a connection with his new wide receivers. Robert Tonyan is still yet to return to the team drills.
While there has been plenty of good from the young receivers, there’s still a long way to go. According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, Aaron Rodgers met with the young receivers before practice on Wednesday.
It will take time. Practices like this one will provide plenty of learning experiences.
There’s no shame in finding life difficult against the New Orleans Saints’ defense. They have a top-five unit. These reps will only help Green Bay’s offense improve.
The main thing moving forward is for the offense to keep building. To learn from their mistakes, and for Rodgers to get valuable reps with his new pass catchers. It’s better to get mistakes out of the way in August and not on game day in September.
Hopefully the offense can bounce back at the next practice.
