Pack-A-Day Podcast - Episode 69 - What's Troubling the Packers' Offense?

Aaron Rodgers called the offense on Sunday, "terrible." Through four weeks of regular season play, the Packers are only averaging two touchdowns a game. What exactly is going wrong with the offense, and is it something that can be easily fixed? Nick Schmitz is here to breakdown the offensive woes and try to figure out a solution going forward.

Easy solution McCarthy needs to give up the play calling and let The Rodgers and Philbin show begin.

No, McCarthy needs to let Philbin go and bring in a younger OC with fresh new ideas on plays and play calling.

...............or just have a computer run the plays. Run, Run, Pass, punt.

Six Packer fans are having a chat in a bar, about the Packers offense, Abe, Barny, Chuck, Doug, Ernie and Frank.

Abe says the problem is clearly MM's playcalling, give Philbin a shot calling the plays.
Nonsense, says Barny, it is the antique, outdated play designs. The recent overhaul changed nothing.
Hell no, says Chuck, its down to AR not taking what is given underneath, that and changing the plays called.
All three of you are wrong, says Doug. it all comes down to the level of talent, there simply aren't enough good vets because of the emphasis on drafting defense, in recent years.
Come on, says Ernie, It's clearly the run/pass balance - give Aaron Jones the ball more, and it all works.
No, it's none of the above, says Frank, it's just that it's the early part of the season, the players haven't gelled yet, give it time and it will all click.

No-one seems able to work out which it is, though everyone weighs in, citing their personal favourite reason. So, what is the reason ? To be honest, I don't know where the fault lies, though I suspect there is more than one thing - so don't look to me for answers. Many posters here think the answer is obvious. I don't.

The only way you can really find out where the fault lies is if one thing changes and suddenly the offense looks really good. Then you pretty much know where the main fault was. But, it may be a long time before that happens...........and it may never happen. Uncomfortable, isn't it.

Some of the blame is on Rodgers. He has major input on the game plan and he can check in or out of a play. He is also the man eying the field making the decision after the snap and throwing the ball. It’s been reported that he has not seen open receivers and has also been off on some of his passes. Aaron is still playing hurt and needs protection from his RB and maybe even himself.

The Wrs.! Drops ,drops and more drops. When the starters drop balls. Seems to me the starters are the problem. Common the rookies haven't played squat yet. But yet we still praise Adams,Cobb, Allison and Graham. And those who are getting the praise? RBs by committee. So why should MM let A-Rod throw down field when they can't catch?

I get where you’re going with the play calling and balancing things. The Packer ran 72 plays. To get to a 55/45 split, you would need to run 40 passes and 32 runs. I honestly don’t think calling 5 more runs is the difference between 45 points and 22. The offense was just flat out bad, regardless of play calling, execution was poor.
