This offseason, Matt LaFleur said that the Green Bay Packers’ offense needed to create more big plays. Well, through two weeks, he’s got them.
Although the Green Bay Packers were able to finish the 2019 season 13-3 and just one game shy of the Super Bowl, the overall offensive production was very average, to say the least. In Year 1 of the Matt LaFleur offense, we saw spurts – often at the beginning of games – where they would move the ball with ease. Yet, there were also plenty of long stretches where even getting a first down was quite difficult.
While many will be quick to point out that the receiver position was the biggest contributor to the Packers’ ups and downs on offense, and I can understand why, a larger issue was that this was the first year of a brand new system.
