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.
It’s probably a bit of a stretch to say they’re really capitalizing on what Wicks can bring to the offense given how little he’s actually been used, but the sentiment is worthwhile.
If the Packers are looking to make meaningful changes on offense, figuring out how to start games faster would be a great first step.
In addition to concerns over who did what on the Packers’ side, it’s easy to overlook the fact that sometimes a defender just makes a good play. That’s at least part of what happened to Love and the Packers on the game-ending interception.
Unless they’re selling, we’re not likely to see much movement from the Packers at the trade deadline.
Hard to beat a good grilled cheese sandwich on a cool fall day.
