Today, fans of the Green Bay Packers finally get our first look at Aaron Rodgers running the team’s new offense in game action for the first time. Head coach Matt LaFleur and Rodgers have been hard at work installing the scheme over the last several weeks and going back to spring practices, but now it’s time to put it in action for real.
Or at least as “real” as preseason football can get.
Rodgers and the Packers’ starters (except for running back Aaron Jones) will get about a quarter of playing time in today’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. The media will surely will surely treat the results of that quarter of action with hyperbole in one direction or another, but for Rodgers it seems that the focus is on getting comfortable with the communication and flow of the offense rather than displaying any sort of astonishing results.
After all, it’s still preseason. Save the best stuff and the fireworks for the season opener against the Chicago Bears in three weeks.
Tune in for today’s game and follow along with us here at Acme Packing Company as we stay updated with the flow of the contest.
