    My opinion is that the quality at the wide receiver position has declined a lot. Even last year Nelson and Cobb masked a thin wide receiver depth. Losing Nelson this year has exposed the problem. It was once the best set of receivers with Driver, Jennings, Nelson, Cobb and Jones. Boykin and Ross were washouts....Adams has yet to assert himself....Jones is no longer a deep threat. Double cover Cobb and what's left ? All the others are still questionable. No wonder Rodgers is frustrated !

    There are many problem, offensive line, no consistent running game, miss throws, dropped passes, penalties, bad concepts at times... It's execution. Not by one person, but the whole group.

    My thought on the wide receivers are this... You are stuck with what you have right now, there is no help coming off the street at this point in the year. So you can complain or make the best of it. So coaches need to scheme to their strengths, get the right players in (AKA Abbrederis for Adams, even if its just to rest his injury) lean on the offensive line and running backs if you must. Whatever it takes cause Jordy isn't coming in to save the day. And 14 weeks into the year you need to have come up with a solution.

    Losing 1 guy isn't an excuse an entire offense to fail, especially when that 1 guy is a wide receiver... Not like it's Aaron.

    The Packers biggest problems on offense stem from three main reasons:
    1: The TE's can easily be covered by a LB. That allows teams to use their two safeties to double Cobb and bring the other man up to kill the running game and take away short routes. The hole at TE is a huge problem.2: The lack of a deep threat just compounds the TE problem. Again teams can be creative with their safeties and can aqueeze the field. 3: The o line just gets physically destroyed on short yardage especially the LT. That's glaring problem with short yardage is causing the offense to have a dismal 3rd down conversion percentage.
