Morning roundup: Dissecting Packers' offensive woes

Oct. 13, 2012
 

The Packers' offensive struggles this season have been well-documented. Among other things, Pete Dougherty in his latest column talks about the following as factors holding the team back:

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has missed some deep throws that last season invariably were on the money; the offensive line has been leakier with 37-year-old Jeff Saturday replacing departed free-agent center Scott Wells; Rodgers has held the ball too long more often than last year; key dropped passes (Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley already have five each); departures and position changes on the offensive coaching staff; and receiver Greg Jennings’ groin injury.

Dougherty suggests the Packers need to get more use out of receiver Randall Cobb to jump start the offense. http://tinyurl.com/9x8h8nk
