Hello Wisconsin: Fall Has Arrived, and So Has Matt LaFleur’s Offense

This week in Hello Wisconsin: The Packers' offense is off to an historic start, Za'Darius Smith has the Saints circled in his calendar, and a delicious Wisconsin Beer of the Week.

I have to admit, I didn’t expect the Packers’ season to begin like this.

I definitely wouldn’t have been surprised at a 2-0 start. But 40+ points in each game? A historically strong offensive start, and the top offense in the league by both points and yards? The top rushing offense in the league?

That’s wild.

I mused a bit last week about how well the Packers’ offense performed for a team with a supposed lack of weapons. Two weeks in, and the results have been beyond impressive.

What’s crazy is the personnel isn’t all that different from a year ago. The only real notable additions outside of the offensive line are Josiah Deguara, who didn’t play in week two, and AJ Dillon, who has only seen late-game snaps when the score was well in hand. Otherwise, this is basically the same set of offensive contributors from a year ago.

So what’s changed? Why are the Packers not just seeing better results, but historically great offensive results after the first two weeks of the season?

There are a few potential factors to consider here.

  • The system: This is year two in Matt LaFleur’s system, and with basically the entire offense back from 2019, everyone has had extra time to get familiar with its intricacies and to be more comfortable with their responsibilities. 

  • The coaching: Matt LaFleur cannot be commended enough for the job he’s done with this offense, which had flatlined in its final year under Mike McCarthy. He’s using a wider range of personnel packages and formations, and has clearly grown more comfortable as an in-game coach. His playcalling has been outstanding overall, and he appears to have developed a real in-game rhythm. Thus, not only have the Packers adjusted to LaFleur’s offense, but LaFleur has had another year to grow more comfortable in the role of head coach.

  • Aaron Rodgers: We’ve all noticed it, and Rodgers himself has alluded to it, but there’s something different about number 12 this year. Rodgers has talked at length about finding peace this offseason and embracing his role with this team and his life in general, and so it could be that sort of positive mindset has helped him achieve a top-tier level of play again to begin this season. But Rodgers is also firing far more balls across the middle of the field than he has in years, and appears to be stepping into his throws with much more comfort and confidence. This is the first time Rodgers has played fully healthy in a familiar offense since before his injury in 2017, when he started the year on another MVP trajectory. That has been a massive factor.

Whatever it is that’s caused the Packers’ offense to get off to such a hot start, let’s just hope it continues to fuel that same sort of momentum throughout the season. Because this unit has been incredibly fun to watch.

Holy open receivers!

Packers are creating open receivers all over the field. So refreshing after the last couple years.

— Tim Backes (@timbackes) September 20, 2020

One of the most noticeable improvements on the offensive side of the ball has been the fact that there are open receivers all over the field on nearly every passing play. Say what you want about the quality of the secondaries in Minnesota and Detroit--this is something that’s been completely missing from the last couple years of Packer football.

Rodgers has been firing to wide open players at all levels and in all areas of the field. And the scheme has a lot to do with that. 

I’ve been particularly fond of the heavy use of the bunch formation the Packers have had going on. It’s become an integral part of the passing offense, and Rodgers is actually firing to receivers out of the bunch. The various route trees that come out of that formation can be quite versatile, and can also create some natural rub routes/picks right off the line of scrimmage. 

How great is it to not have to watch Geronimo Allison and Jake Kumerow be tasked with beating their man in single coverage on deep routes outside the hashes over and over again?

Wisconsin Beer of the Week

I’ve always been a fan of Central Waters Brewing Company. If New Glarus, Leinenkugel’s and Capital Brewing were my introduction to the world of craft beer while I was in college in the mid-2000s at UW Madison, Central Waters is the brewery that truly sucked me in for good after I graduated.

My in-laws live fairly close to Amherst, WI, where the brewery is located, so I’m fortunate to get out there every now and then to try some of their less widely available stuff. We actually got kegs of their Octoberfest and Honey Blonde for our wedding some years back. And of course, there are plenty of Central Waters beers you can find in liquor stores all over Wisconsin. 

The brewery is perhaps best known for its impressive collection of barrel aged beers. Let me tell you, I’ve been inside their barrel aging facility, and it’s like walking into the huge warehouse at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, where those “top men” are conducting “research” on the Ark of the Covenant. Barrels on barrels on barrels. You step inside and you get smacked in the face by the smell of bourbon. It’s magical.

I have a few Central Waters beers in my fridge at all times just as a matter of principle. The one I’ve chosen for Beer of the Week is one of their many delicious stouts, their Salted Maple Stout. 

At 10.75 ABV, this one packs a punch, but it’s so easy to drink. It’s sweet and thick like molasses, due to the large quantities of real maple syrup included in the brew. There’s a bit of salt added that gives some real depth of flavor. It’s a perfect beer for crisp fall and winter evenings. It’s a specialty beer, so it’s only available at certain times--this one had been sitting in my fridge since last winter, and as overnight temperatures started dipping into the 40s I felt it was appropriate to crack it open and enjoy.

Expect Central Waters beers to appear frequently in this space.

Around the NFC North

As always, it’s time to take a brief look at what the rest of the NFC North accomplished (or failed to accomplish) over the weekend’s action.

  • The Chicago Bears are a surprising 2-0, but don’t exactly inspire a whole lot of confidence; they defeated the Lions only because the Lions managed to Lions it up in a big way in the fourth quarter, completely collapsing and then dropping a game-winning touchdown. Then they got to play the Giants, the worst team in the NFL by record over the last three seasons (and that includes the 0-16 Browns), who ended up losing Saquon Barkley to a season-ending injury. The Bears have a much tougher test in Week 3, traveling to Atlanta to take on the potent Falcons offense. If the Bears can emerge victorious, I may suddenly believe this team could be in the playoff race after all. But for now, even ardent fans of the team can’t put a whole lot of stock into the Bears being a legitimate threat based on its first two weeks of play.
  • The Detroit Lions need to fire Matt Patricia as soon as possible. The guy is an absolutely awful coach, and by all accounts he’s generally despised. He should not have been given the chance to come back for another year; what could possibly be gained by allowing him to continue to spread his toxicity throughout the franchise for the rest of this season? Also, what the hell were the Lions thinking by going away from the run against the Packers after it helped them open up an early two-score lead? The Lions have to travel to play Arizona next, a young team with a whole lot of promise that will likely shred its weakened secondary. After that, they get the Saints. It’s quite likely the Lions are in for an 0-4 start, after which the season is essentially lost.
  • The Minnesota Vikings looked bad against the Packers, but against the Colts they didn’t even resemble an NFL franchise. Kirk Cousins had an absolutely awful outing, one of the worst of his career, going 11 of 26 for 113 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions for a 15.9 rating. Those are Rex Grossman numbers, people. The Vikings had a lot of turnover at key positions coming into this year, and they’re looking very much like a team that’s having to make it up as they go along. With the Titans, Texans, Seahawks and Falcons all coming up, the Vikings could be fully out of it by mid-October. You just hate to see it.

Lambeau without fans just doesn’t sit right

How weird was it to watch a live NFL broadcast from Lambeau Field without any fans in the stands? It was especially strange when Aaron Jones dove into the stands for that first Lambeau Leap… with no one around him. It was just a strange sight.

I was watching reporters tweet out pictures from around Green Bay, with the town appearing dead just hours before game time, when the entire city is normally jam packed with people donning green and gold attire and holding their beverage of choice, and when grills are fired up at lots and fields all over within walking distance of the stadium. 

I’m very thankful that we’ve actually got football to enjoy this fall, but man, that was a tough site. It’s another reminder of how much we’ve lost due to this pandemic. Cities and businesses are hurting, and people aren’t gathering in ways they’re accustomed to. It’s unnatural, and a bit eerie, especially on a football Sunday in Green Bay.

Here’s hoping for a return to something remotely resembling normal as soon as possible.

Fall food is best food; you know I’m right

I’ve never been one of those people who goes crazy over the arrival of fall. I’m perfectly content with my 70-80 degree summer Wisconsin weather while I can enjoy it, thank you very much. I don’t need the arrival of fall to remind me that I live in a wintery hellscape approximately 7 months out of the year.

However, there is one thing about the arrival of fall that does bring me joy, and that is the seasonal food.

I’m not talking about Pumpkin Spice Lattes, either. (Frankly, I hate all coffee and find it disgusting, and I’m fully aware I’m unusual for this.)

I’m thinking casseroles, sweet potatoes, delicious soups, acorn squash, roasted vegetables, cranberry muffins, apple pie, and, of course, Oktoberfest beer and the beginning of stout and porter season.

There’s a reason why Thanksgiving is indisputably the best holiday, aside from the fact that you don’t have to worry about buying a ton of crap. It’s got the best food. Yeah, okay, turkey is great, but let’s talk about stuffing, pie, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, freshly baked bread… you cannot beat it.

This is a hill I am willing to die on. I love my summer barbecues, but fall food is best food. You can’t convince me otherwise.

Week three quick forecast

New Orleans is never an easy place to play, but the Packers have the benefit of making their visit at a time when it won’t be packed with fans screaming their faces off. 

That’s certainly one important factor to consider in the outcome of this game--it removes a lot of homefield advantage when you don’t have your fans getting loud while the opposing team is on offense.

Another important factor is the status of all-pro wide receiver Michael Thomas. Thomas suffered an ankle sprain in the Saints’ week one game against Tampa Bay, didn’t play against Las Vegas, and is day-to-day leading up to the game on Sunday against the Packers. Recent updates had Thomas out 2-4 weeks, which would put him out for the game this weekend, but you can’t entirely rule him out yet.

Without Thomas, the Packers’ job becomes much easier: stop Alvin Kamara, and nothing else matters all that much. Drew Brees, while still a good quarterback, is nowhere near the threat he once was--age has caught up with his arm. If the Packers can keep Kamara in check, Brees will have to do the heavy lifting he used to do for this offense, but simply cannot do any more at this stage in his career and without his top receiving threat.

This is going to be the Packers’ toughest contest yet on both sides of the ball, but right now, Green Bay is the better team. I think they do just enough to slow down Kamara, and I think their offensive line is capable of withstanding whatever the Saints’ pass rush throws their way.

Give me the Packers, 30-24.

Thanks Tim...I love these "Hello Wisconsin" pieces by you. They remind me of home and frankly better times , especially better than this past year.

Being in a 12-step program I don't know much about all these new beers. Seeing the beer name "Leinenkugel’s" DEFINITLY brought back memory's of our cabin in Northern Wisconsin. It's not a beer you ever see in Los Angeles. They just don't know what their missing do they?

I have to admit I wasn't all in on the Matt LaFluer hire when it was made. I was on the Josh McDaniel bandwagon myself, especially after his introduction pressor when he looked scared to death, eyes wide open. Eating crow 20 games into his head coaching tree is fine with me. IMO the BIGGEST reason for this offensive juggernaut that is the GBP offense is MLF first and foremost. The man had called beautiful games so far and seems to only be warming up.

I'm of the opinion Drew Brees has gotten old. It happens sooner than we expect almost every single time and it's happening in NO this year. The Saints are still a good football team but with no Michael Thomas and a QB who won't throw a pass over 20 yards, it makes the Packers job a bit easier this week. In a stadium that's normally a house of horrors for the Packers I think they win by 10 and make it look almost easy.

Boiling brats is an affront to sausage culture!

The one thing Sheboygan can lord over the rest of the state is it knows that boiling brats is sacrilege and the "brat fry" is like holy communion.

Brats go on the grill raw and come off when properly cooked. If you want to soak them in beer before grilling, that's fine. But using a warm beer and onion bath as a holding tank for grilled brats is preferred.

Us fans can have over confidence and it doesn’t matter. What matters is how coach MLF keeps his team level headed. So far, I have been very impressed by his even temperament. The true test is when he hits real adversity. That being said, having great leaders in Arod and Zsmith makes it a bit easier on the HC.

"We’ve all noticed it, and Rodgers himself has alluded to it, but there’s something different about number 12 this year."

He's cleaning up his play (not completely...plenty of back leg and all-arm throws on Sunday), working with what he's being given, and getting the ball out in a more timely manner. His deep throws are a little less frequent and a little more accurate, too. Some pointed to the drafting of Love as putting a chip on QB1's shoulder...perhaps. Maybe he's finally seeing what he needs to do as an aging QB to play as long as he says he wants to play--and acting on it.

"Around the NFC North"

It's early, but sizing up to be one of the weakest divisions in the NFL. There's nothing wrong with being a high-end team in a weak division...it's the formula that propelled the Pats to title after title in the last 20 years.

"Kirk Cousins had an absolutely awful outing, one of the worst of his career, going 11 of 26 for 113 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions for a 15.9 rating. Those are Rex Grossman numbers, people"

I was thinking those were numbers akin to what he put up against the Packers in 2019.

" With the Titans, Texans, Seahawks and Falcons all coming up, the Vikings could be fully out of it by mid-October. You just hate to see it."

After the Packers beat the Vikes at the Temple of Bird Doom, it was very apparent that could be a team that goes winless through their first 6...even given that, they could still be a .500 team at the end. Still, I'm loving every second of it.

MM talked about running the ball more after every game of the last decade he was with the Packers.

I'm pretty confident MM was sending run plays into the huddle. I'm pretty confident the QB was checking out of those plays and into pass plays.

Lots of subtle clues without selling out his QB in MM pressers over the years. Lots of carefully picked words from QB1 to give the impression he wasn't checking out of plays without actually saying anything that's technically a lie.

After listening to Get up this morning and hearing that Brees is now a QB who needs to step into his throws to be good led me to think about Arod’s mechanics. My thoughts is that all QB’s are normally good when they can step into a throw.

The reality is in the NFL many times you don’t have that luxury, so what makes a great QB (HOF type) are the ones who can throw accurately under different circumstances such as; back foot, side arm, while running left or right, under hand, with a lineman hanging onto your foot, and when you know said lineman is going to smack you when you are throwing. Who does that remind you of? Rodgers, Mahommes, Favre, Wilson, Montana, etc....basically most HOF QB’s.

Leads me to a conclusion that if its true Brees has to step into his throws to be great he is in trouble.

They were open in the past as well. The difference is the QB is now throwing to them.

I'll get thumbs-downed and told I'm a Rodgers hater, but it's always been there for people to see if they watch the old game tape. Rodgers ignored the open WRs in the middle of the field for many years.

Now he isn't.. That's great news for Rodgers, the Offense, and the GBPs in general. I have an issue with the continual attempt to hang offensive failures on everyone other than Rodgers. He is finally starting to fix the flaws that have been in his game and stubbornly went unchecked and unchanged for far too long.

It's the same thing with "his balance", etc, etc. No, it isn't recovery from his "broken leg" has finally reached 100%. It's that he's finally figured out he can't slack off on his fundamental mechanics and expect to play at peak form.

The same "it's not Rodgers' fault" mentality is still being applied to play clock management at the LOS.. There's a lot of people who STILL want to blame the offense and the play callers, even though it's been an issue through two different offenses and at least three different play callers.. and there's other teams running the same basic offense without play clock issues.

I think the main reason the Lions went away from the run was because the scoreboard got way from them at the end of the second quarter.

The prolific efficiency of the Packer O tilting the score is really helping the D...pass D is a decided strength while the run D is again soft. Losing Kenny created another hole that was not filled until the Lions started passing then Gary filled it with his pressures and sacks and some timely tackles.

The coaching seems very good on O and STs. D, not so much beyond Mike Smith and Gray/Downard seem to be doing a good job with the young CBs.

I was a big Pettine fan when he was hired but he is not impressing me after two + years. Very stubborn and is intent to stop the pass (fine) but to tolerate the run to the point of being laughable. Same porous run game every contest. I was not surprised when ML was considering firing him after last season. This may be his last year in GB.

I hope it's true that MLF got in his face at halftime. There's prevent and there's ridiculous. Giving 25-yard cushions, which Pettine was doing, means allowing teams to move upfield 20 yards at a time with little loss of time. Insane. But the run D is not entirely Pettine's fault. When Lowry and Lancaster are are being pushed around and eating dirt practically every play and Adams literally is pushed around spinning like a pinwheel, it's an indication that Gute has decided that Kenny Clark can do it alone. He can't. Need a big ugly in the middle. Snacks visiting the Seahawks today. Doubt we sign him because of our salary cap issues. So we're left with Pettine trying to scheme, but scheming won't stop Kamara rushing up the middle. This is going to be a tough game, but revealing of what our D is capable, or uncapable, of doing. If we give up a 40 spot, I think MLF starts looking for another D coordinator. He won't wait, like Mac did on Capers.

The Cowboys are not under performing with the same head coach that was too stubborn to change, managed to turn his HOF QB against him, and refused to use Aaron Jones. I'd say Jerry Jones made a major mistake hiring MM. However, couldn't have happened to a more deserving franchise. Meanwhile, the Vikings implode and are on the hook for a crippling cap hit if they cut their QB; the Bears still don't have a QB, and the Lions still don't have a clue. Would anyone be surprised if they fired Patricia and hired Adam Gase? Rodgers hasn't looked this happy, focused and involved in the game for years. Perhaps the Packers giving him some Love lit a fire under him. As far as MVP, unless something weird happens, that will go to Russell Wilson. The buzz is all "the guy has never gotten a vote!" on talk radio/TV, and that will all change this year. As long as Rodgers is SB MVP, I'll be fine with it.

I guess you're the only one who wasn't aware he was injured the last two years, and is now healthy. But let's blame the "broad".

Actually I had a very enjoyable evening with my lovely wife.

So you equate basic respect for women with dementia. That really says a lot about you. One thing we can both agree on....Thank God I'm not like you.

Yes I am sure you don't want to be like a happy family guy enjoying life to the fullest and not just sitting around with my wife, she goes with me and we enjoy our lives! You really need a change of your diaper with all the crying you are doing on here! Goodness!

Yeah, you look like a real winner. Were you intentionally trying to look like a doofus in your photo, or is that just your natural look?

Both you and your tone deaf friend have more down votes than up. Looks like nobody on here agrees with either of you on a multitude of issues. I hope that wasn't too big of a word for you.

And Leatherface chimes in. I'm sure your redneck Texas upbringing also agrees with calling women broads. You're about as enlightened as these other two idiots.

Born and raised in Wisconsin but I got to Texas as fast as I could.

Why are your panties always in a wad about something?

Fall is my favorite time of the year. It is fall food, beer, football and hunting. On the downside, I spent the morning doing routine maintenance on my snowblower so it is ready for the season and assembling my roof rake. Oh well, it beats wildfires and hurricanes and floods......
