NFL analyst predicts Packers’ post-Aaron Rodgers era offense to become explosive: “I think it has unlimited upside”

A renowned NFL analyst made an intriguing prediction about the Green Bay Packers offense following the departure of their long-time quarterback Aaron Rodgers, foreseeing an explosive offensive unit with unlimited potential.

The speculation surrounding the Packers’ offense has been at an all-time high since Rodgers finally bid adieu to Green Bay. After a successful and storied 18-year tenure with the team, which included numerous accolades, a Super Bowl victory, and four MVP awards, the 39-year-old got himself enrolled in the New York Jets squad.

NFL analyst predicts the Packers to become “one of most explosive offenses in NFL” despite the departure of Aaron Rodgers

In the recent appearance of the prominent NFL analyst Louis Riddick on ESPN’s “NFL Live”, the future of the Green Bay Packers offense post-Aaron Rodgers era has been painted in an incredibly positive light.

Louis sees a silver lining in this transitional period for Green Bay, citing the team’s strong offensive line and talented receiving corps are far from limited as well as projecting the franchise to go back to their old form with the starting quarterback Jordan Love and young faces like second-year players Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs.

“Over the next season and over the next couple of years, this could be one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL and I think it has unlimited upside,” he said.

The scout and member of two front offices believes the transition will take time and the new squad needs to be handled with patience to let them explore their potential.

“You have to take it slow and be willing to live with the bumps in the road. You have to give them some time,” he added.

Green Bay showcased a poor performance in their offense in the last season, ranking 14th and their 21.8 points average was 10 points fewer than their league-high 2020 season.

Riddick’s fellow panelist Keyshawn Johnson stated if the Packers’ new QB1 can get the franchise to the eight-win mark or somehow better, and showcase powerful athleticism on the field, it might be noted as a successful season.

“Show us that you’ve evolved since sitting on the bench. Show us what the Green Bay Packers saw in practice and what little bit of gameplay that you’ve had, that you’ve learned from it, that you’ve gotten better. I think he’ll be successful. I understand he can’t be Aaron Rodgers off the bat”, Johnson said.

The former NFL wide receiver acknowledged that the departure of a future Hall of Fame quarterback like Rodgers undoubtedly presents challenges, however, he urged to provide the new troops with the opportunity to glorify themselves on the field.

“I understand it was Aaron Rodgers and there were high hopes in Green Bay. But you have to give them the opportunity and chance”, he further added.

While acknowledging the transition from an elite quarterback like Aaron is no small feat, Riddick and Keyshawn’s positive outlook on the Packers’ post-Rodgers offense provides a refreshing perspective. If their projections do come to fruition, Green Bay fans may witness an offensive transformation.

It remains to be seen if the Packers can live up to these lofty expectations, for now, many fans will watch in anticipation as they embark on this new era.
