Packers shining with LaFleur’s offense

The top brass at 1265 Lombardi Avenue in Green Bay continues to take heat for failing to pick a wide receiver in last spring’s draft.
Yet, Packers fans fail to fully understand what second-year coach Matt LaFleur (pictured) brought to Packerland last year.
La Fleur’s offense is not predicated upon former coach Mike McCarthy’s “five wide and let it ride,” passing attack. LaFleur’s passing offense features a three-headed monster - wide receivers, tight ends and running backs. It’s the newest and brightest offensive trend in the NFL.
Stat freaks point to this and that, but the only statistic that really counts is outscoring your opponent every game as the unbeaten Packers proved through their first four games this year, coupled with La Fleur’s surprising 13-3 regular-season one year ago.
A strong wide receiving corps built around but oft-injured No. 1 Davante Adams and No. 2 Allen Lazard (currently on injured reserve), is fine. However, the Packers multi-faceted passing attack utilizing running backs Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams, and now young tight ends Robert Tonyan and Jace Sternberger pose even greater headaches for opposing defensive coordinators.
La Fleur’s modern-day offense also offers future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers more pass-catching options and quicker ball release without buying time, plus should extend his long, storied career by a few years.
Maybe the Packers should have focused on the defensive side of the ball. As the old saying goes, “Offense wins games, but defense wins championships.”
