For all of the Green Bay Packers (3-5) frustrations this season, it starts on the offensive side of the ball. Even with QB Aaron Rodgers (again) preaching patience, it’s running thin in Lambeau.

The Packers front office was stagnant ahead of the NFL’s Trade Deadline, with the belief the Packers would do something to aid the offense. Primarily at receiver to help elevate the passing attack.

Instead, Green Bay does not add any new talent to the existing roster. Even with strong reports that WR Chase Claypool was a prime trade candidate the Packers were very interested in, their arch-rival Chicago Bears swooped in and stole him.

Providing their young quarterback an extra weapon to help his game elevation, which is coming on strong in recent weeks.

The good news is the Green Bay Packers might already have their WR1 in-house, despite inconsistencies.

Rookie WR Romeo Doubs though eight games has been targeted 49 times (first on team) for 30 receptions (second) 296 yards (second) and three touchdowns (second). Of all his targets, Rodgers is showing the most faith in the young fourth-rounder.

And why shouldn’t he? His 155 yards after the catch are only behind RB Aaron Jones and TE Robert Tonyan. Which even exceeds his yards before the catch, meaning most of his work done is after he gets the ball.

Doubs’s biggest issue has been dropped passes. He leads the team with five on the year. However, most WR1’s have had to go through periods of dropped passes.

They come with the territory when you get the most targets. Logically if you get more chances to catch the ball, it means you’ll get chances to drop it as well.

All things Rodgers has had to deal with in his career with different receivers, but has also been a key factor in elevating players like James Jones, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. All players Rodgers fed the ball to in an effort to excel their progression and the offense.

The sad reality is that the Packers are going to have to deal with dropped passes because Doubs is undoubtedly their best receiver.

Best way to get him to connect with Rodgers and elevate the passing game is to simply feed him the ball and roll with the punches. Something Rodgers and Green Bay are very familiar with.
