It is a season of change for the Green Bay Packers. While the departure of Aaron Rodgers has garnered most of the attention, his removal from Green Bay's offensive equation has a significant impact on the rest of the roster.
The days of the Packers turning to hero ball when they find their backs against the wall are over. No longer can they rely on their former signal caller to carry the load offensively and be the reason the team wins games.
The path to being effective on offense will be spread out rather than belonging solely one person.
A position to note? Running back, which leads to a few significant questions about the Packers' backfield workhorses.
3. Can Packers rushing attack take pressure off of Jordan Love?
It is going to be up to Matt LaFleur to carefully craft a game plan that maximizes the talent and effectiveness of Green Bay's new starting quarterback in Jordan Love. An easy way to take pressure off of their unproven quarterback? Utilizing the running game.
The Packers have an impressive backfield combination of Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon. Jones and Dillon have even been referred to as the best running back duo in the NFL by one outlet.
It would certainly make sense to lean on Jones and Dillon to carry a heavy load offensively, which would allow Love to operate a bit more comfortably. Making Love comfortable must be the primary objective on offense. It still is a quarterback driven league, after all.
