After a disappointing offensive display in 2017-18, the Green Bay Packers offense can see the light at the end of the tunnel this upcoming season.
Green Bay Packers’ fans experienced something last season that they hadn’t in quite some time, a bottom tier offense.
The Packers finished 26th in the league last season in yards per game (305.7) and 21st in points per game (20). With that, they finished 26th in time of possession per game (29:09) and 22nd in turnover margin (-3).
Not only the specialists struggled, it was also the front five. Last season, the Packers offensive line allowed the fifth most sacks in the league with 51.
As there were some signs of life at times with the offense throughout the season it seemed as if the group as a whole struggled to click without Aaron Rodgers.
However, 2018-19 is a new season with a somewhat new cast of characters. Oh yeah, there’s also a man by the name of Rodgers making his return from an injured 2017-18 season.
Have no fear Packers fans, Rodgers is here.
And along with him comes all-pro tight end Jimmy Graham and a hand full of new rookie receivers. Besides them, there are Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams who will be entering their second seasons at running back. Sticking at running back, Ty Montgomery will be returning after his injury-plagued season.
As you can see there are many reasons to be hopeful about a better Packers offense in 2018-19. These are five of the reasons the Packers offense will be back to form this season.
