The Packers are 1-1 and while most are fairly happy with how the team has progressed from the beginning of the season, there still seems to be a little doubting going on regarding the struggles of our offense. I'm here to say that these "struggles" are nothing to be concerned about, especially when dealing with such a small sample size.
First, we've all got to look at the positives this team has shown. Last year, there were times when the offense sputtered and in cases like the KC loss or the Giants loss, there was zero help from special teams and/or defense to make up for the gap. Last year, the team's MO was to have the offense cover for the mistakes of the D/ST, which is all well and good but obviously left a lot of room from trouble when the offense wasn't gelling. This year, the offense hasn't seemed quite right in both the San Francisco and Chicago games. However, we are getting HUGE boosts from our D/ST like we did during our Super Bowl run.
As much as we all love the guy, Aaron Rodgers isn't invincible and cannot play 22 positions by himself. Sure, he isn't looking exactly like his MVP self, but we've only played two games. With Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings, James Jones, Donald Driver, Randall Cobb, Jermichael Finley, D.J. Williams, and now Cedric Benson, there is simply way too much firepower for this offense to sputter all season long. The teams in this league are simply too good to let an offense run rampant over the course of an entire season.
Now just imagine the offense firing on all cylinders, the defense playing as hard as they did on Thursday, and special teams coming up big with plays like the fake FG or kick returns for TDs. THAT is a scary thought, but only for our opponents. The rest of us cheeseheads have a lot to be excited about.
