Yet Another Case of Aaron Rodgers Being Let Down by His Coach
Aaron Rodgers had had one tough year in 2016. With the Packers standing at third place with a score of 4-4 after losing to the Colts on Sunday in a place where they once looked most likely to win after the Vikings’ devastating loss. For what it’s worth, Rodgers did look a little out of form in these 8 games as he was observed taking lesser shots downfield and being less mobile overall. At just 32, the question has already arisen whether Rodgers is actually lived his “glory days” and if he should take a bow – a question that can really reset the NFL betting scene.
Truth be told, however, that doesn’t seem to be the case. It is clearly visible that the Packers themselves aren’t at the best, though Rodgers is still very much in form. It’s just that it is impossible for him to throw to the covered players and surprise the defense with his team running the NFL’s most predictable offense.
And as far as offenses go, the Packers is a rather bland and oddly paradoxical. With one of the league’s best offense lines, Eddie Lacy as the runner back, in addition to one of the best quarterbacks in twenty five years, the Packers have accomplished very little.
In this regard, Mike McCarthy, who is the off season-head-coach, explained how he would return to basics using his offense.

According to McCarthy it is a the applicability of a design that truly matters – which is why basic plays make the best plays. They must therefore aim to win through the fundamentals, using players rather than plays. He added that with times getting rough, they seemed to have rather resorted to focusing on plays rather than on developing players when it comes to offense.
But while the sentiment may sound reasonable to begin with, one may realize that keeping things simple and simply going along with what works may have worked back the 1980s, but isn’t really relevant now. But while the sentiment may sound reasonable to begin with, one may realize that keeping things simple and simply going along with what works may have worked back the 1980s, but isn’t really relevant now. After all, with an impressive line offense, more-than-capable receivers and of course, Rodgers it is clearly visible that offense is the team’s strength, and that the old routine of “running up” isn’t really going to work.
In the meantime, things aren’t getting any easier in the NFL as well, with The Patriots changing their offense, bringing in fresh ideas, and introducing plays nullify the best defenses every week, and the Saints with their dial-up and Drew Brees’ wild looks. If other teams had someone like Rodgers, nothing would stop them from making complex offensive lines.
While Rodgers hasn’t been exactly perfect this season, a good coaching- staff can easily fix that. The Packers, however, aren’t at all concerned with their offense, and are running some off-the-beaten track, hoping that their guys will defeat the other team with no guidance.
