NFL: Green Bay Packers at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers have problems on offense. By this point in the season, that’s a pretty uninteresting and unhelpful take. How they fix them is much more relevant, much more important…and much more challenging.

Finding fault is easy. Assigning blame is a bit more challenging, but only if you care about doing it with any kind of accuracy, and even if you fire off the blame gun wildly, you’ll probably hit someone at least partially responsible for what ails the offense. Finding solutions takes work, and it may never actually happen. Coaches get fired and players get cut long before solutions are ever found in most cases.

Obviously, the Packers have to continue to try. It behooves them for this season and beyond to find a version of this offense that works, if only so they can get an accurate read on who Jordan Love is. If they can’t fit Love into a system that works, that may be an answer of its own. The only solution is to continue to try.
