Did the Packers do enough to help Rodgers, title hopes?

For the Packers faithful, Green Bay was just a Super Bowl victory.

As for the detractors, it all worked out for the NFC North champions during a surprising 13-3 season in which Green Bay’s record was more impressive than their game-by-game performances.

However, for most, now was the time for the Packers and they only needed to fill a few gaps in the 2020 NFL Draft, perhaps most notably at wide receiver.

Instead, wide receivers were not selected as the Packers surprised many with Utah State quarterback Jordan Love’s first-round pick, probably Aaron Rodgers’ successor, and followed with the runner’s second-round pick. AJ Dillon, perhaps another option in the backfield despite the appearance of Aaron Jones.

Although the Packers knocked on the door of the Super Bowl, an inside look at the numbers by NFL Research reveals that Green Bay has gone three consecutive seasons without a top-10 scoring offense from 1990-1992. What’s more, the Packers’ 23.5 points per game (15th in the NFL) were the least among a 13-win team since 2010, according to NFL Research.

Only the Bills averaged fewer points per game between the 2019 NFL postseason field.

Perhaps Rodgers is not the magician he once was. He finished with an under-100 passer rating for three consecutive seasons, which is his first race. Nonetheless, conventional wisdom points to a win-now approach when a team is on the doorstep of the greatest of great games.
