The concern, of course, is that the loss of wide receiver Davante Adams (traded to the Las Vegas Raiders earlier this offseason) will cause the Packers’ offense to regress significantly.
It’s an understandable concern — Adams is an elite player who made life easier for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
But folks need to remember that Green Bay still has the reigning back-to-back NFL MVP on the roster.
Rodgers is a sure-fire future Hall of Famer who’s playing as well as he’s ever played right now.
And if Rodgers isn’t concerned, then fans/media shouldn’t be concerned.
Rodgers indicated this week that he thinks the Packers’ offense could be “pretty good” in 2022 via an incredible quote that will surely make Green Bay fans smile.
Aaron Rodgers: "The pre-practice jog-through, I stepped into the huddle the other day, it was Big Giraffe at left, Elgton over at right, Big Dog was in there, Sammy and Cobb and Allen and Jonesy…and I was like, this feels like a pretty good offense right here."— Zach Kruse (@zachkruse2) August 23, 2022
It’s hard to not get excited after hearing those words from Rodgers. It’s clear that he’s feeling confident about the state of Green Bay’s offense.
There have been some growing pains during training camp — especially with the young wide receivers. But Rodgers likes what he sees from the Packers’ offense. While life without Adams will likely be challenging at times, it sounds like Green Bay is ready to pick up where they left off last season.
