The Denver Broncos offense shattered records last season and is still incredibly fearsome going into the 2014 season, but the Green Bay Packers could field the league’s most spectacular offense this year with stiff competition from the likes of the Broncos and Drew Brees-led New Orleans Saints. Aaron Rodgers, however, is the best quarterback in the NFL right now when discussing physical and mental tools, and he has a great feature back behind him with plenty of weapons at his disposal. He’s primed for a historical season based on his career arc, offseason work, and the set-up of the offense.
Per sources close to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Mike McCarthy and the Packers are giving Rodgers more control of the offense than ever before, and this was a long time coming. Rodgers not only possesses ridiculous arm talent, but he’s also one of the best quarterbacks in the game at breaking down coverages and identifying blitzes. Timing is critical in the Packers offense, and there’s a reason why Jordy Nelson is so valuable; he understands how to get open and connect with Rodgers.
Rapoport reports that the Packers will run a fast-paced offense, and this is something we’ve constantly heard throughout the offseason. These guys are going to run a high volume of plays, and they will spread out defenses with an even deeper WR corps that includes intriguing rookies Davante Adams and Jeff Janis, who is a major darkhorse. Lacy is the real key, though, because he can absolutely wear down defenses, who can’t sell out on either the run or pass because of the elite QB-RB combo that the Packers possess. If anyone can have success against the Seattle Seahawks historically impressive defense, then it’s the Packers explosive, diverse offense.
