Aaron Rodgers speaks out on Packers offense entering the playoffs
The Green Bay Packers offense led by Aaron Rodgers has enjoyed success, but they have missed out on a lot of points because of big plays missed by just a couple of inches. There have been many questions about why the offense isn’t clicking more, and it’s something Rodgers is sick of talking about.
Rodgers knows that going into the team’s divisional-round that the team needs to focus on what has worked during the regular season rather than what hasn’t worked.
“I think the timing’s been off a lot of the year,” Rodgers said via Rob Demovsky of ESPN. “I don’t know if that’s going to get fixed. It’s not going to get fixed the next two days, it’s just a matter of finding those concepts where the timing has been good because there’s been a number of concepts where we’ve looked good, the ball’s been coming out on time, I’ve been feeling good about the rhythm and guys are getting open on time. But there’s, I think, too many concepts that we’ve really tried to hit and keep hitting and make it work and we just aren’t on the same page timingwise.”
One thing the team has found to work really well has been the play of the Packers’ running backs. On the season, Aaron Jones has rushed 236 times for 1,084 yards and 16 touchdowns.
No matter who the Packers end up playing, it’s going to be important the team has success running the ball because that opens up the passing game for Rodgers.
