Former NFL QB Showers Packers’ Offense With Praise

After a disastrous start to the 2022 season when the Green Bay Packers lost 23-7 to the Minnesota Vikings, they have gotten things back on track in the three weeks since the opener. The Packers have won three games in a row and the offense is beginning to click for stretches at a time.

Green Bay revamped their offense this offseason when they traded Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders. They also saw Marquez Valdes-Scantling depart in free agency as he signed a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs. Aaron Rodgers was outspoken about the work that still needed to be put in with an almost entirely new receiving corps.

It has clicked with some players as rookie Romeo Doubs has picked up his performance and is turning into a go-to receiver along with Allen Lazard. Lazard was the only holdover from last season that surpassed the 400-yard receiving plateau, showing how much chemistry needed to be developed in Green Bay.

With Aaron Rodgers under center, there was plenty of optimism that the Packers would eventually get things on track offensively. They are showing signs of figuring things out, scoring 27 points in two out of their last three games.

One NFL analyst believes things will only get better in the coming weeks. Speaking on ESPN’s Get Up, former NFL quarterback Dan Orlovsky shared the high hopes that he has for the Green Bay offense the rest of the way.

That is certainly a bold statement to make as the Packers’ offense was one of the most prolific in the league with Adams in the fold. While there is plenty of work left to do, the Packers can at least run on their strong ground game led by Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon until they get things going through the air. 

Knowing that they can win games without the passing game operating at a high level has to instill confidence in the rest of the roster knowing they can get the job done. This is a team that will be there at the end, contending for a Super Bowl.
