This assessment of Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense is interesting:

The Green Bay Packers offense is fundamentally flawed because of its design.

For over a year, the Mike McCarthy-Aaron Rodgers system has resembled a clogged pipe; bogged down and lacking any fluidity.

The offensive struggles continued in Sunday’s 17-14 loss at Minnesota. The Packers are now 6-8 in their last 14 games.

The McCarthy-Rodgers relationships is a curious schematic one. McCarthy is a staunch West Coast-timing guy. He demands rhythm and precision. Rodgers, however, is a second-phase quarterback. He is the master of the broken play.

While this mishmash system has produced explosive plays. it’s fair to wonder how sustainable it can be over time.

Can the Packers rely on so-called "sandlot plays" without any rhythm or timing to systematically break down defenses, even when there are certain predetermined elements built into play designs?

The evidence suggests "no."


It demands too much of the offensive line, too much of the receivers and too much of Rodgers.

Fundamentally, they run a "second-phase isolation system." This offense is intended to take advantage of Rodgers’ unique ability to keep plays alive and create big-play opportunities well after most systems demand the ball be released.

Hmmm...
