No one can fault the Packers offense for slow starts this season. They have 3 touchdowns and 1 field goal in there 5 opening drives this year. But on their 50 other possessions this season they have averaged just 1.8 points per possession. They have to keep it going after they get it started. 

“We just have to throw and catch better,” said Aaron Rodgers. “I have to be as accurate as I know I can be, and we have to make sure we are as detailed as we can be with the routes so we are on the same page more consistently.” 

“We always talk about opening fast and finishing strong,” said receiver Randall Cobb. ”We have kind of fluttered in different categories.” 

“I honestly don’t know,” said receiver Jordy Nelson. “I have not tried to dissect it or anything. We always want to start a season and a game fast, we want to get on top as soon as possible. But we also want to finish. We legitimately try to score every possession. It’s not like we get to the third quarter and try to relax a little bit. We are out there trying to do what we can do, and do it to the best of our abilities. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.” 

“We are going to deal with questions like this for a stretch until we get this thing right and there is a heightened sense of urgency,” Rodgers said. But there is definitely not any panic around here.” 

Aaron Rodgers used to pass for 300 yards about every other week, but he has not done so since Week 10 of last year. And during that span, 100 other 300-yard passing games have been registered in the NFL. At Lambeau Field, Dave Schroeder action 2 Sports.
