3. Offensive balance
For most of the Aaron Rodgers’ era, the Packers have relied heavily on the passing game. Defenses have had very little reason to respect the run, often times dropping six men in coverage. Perhaps, one of the most balanced teams Green Bay had was their Super Bowl run in the playoffs when James Starks emerged as a legit running weapon.
The Packers should be able to get back to a balanced attack this season. The offensive line is coming along and has proven to be adept at run-blocking. Green Bay also has not one, not two, but three running backs who at least appear adequate.
Aaron Jones, Ty Montgomery and Jamaal Williams all bring something different to the table that can help this Packers’ rushing attack. The trio should be able to make teams pay for disrespecting the run and take advantage of the light boxes.
