Not according to Football Outsiders. They have GB’s pass protection ranked as follows:
2018 - 21
2017 - 28
2016 - 11
2015 - 23
2014 - 13
2013 - 26
Not really much “up” and mostly “down.” Rodgers hasn’t had top-tier pas protection for an entire decade...and it’s often pretty bad...and has gotten him injured (like Luck).
His pass protection in 2017 was actually almost as bad as Brissett’s...and he ultimately fractured his collar bone after being flushed out of the pocket. But in the 9 games he did play, he put up a 97 passer rating.
From 2009-2014, his average passer rating was 110...and only one season did he have an OL above 23rd.
The guy is the best ever IMO. Suffice to say...I think he would have managed alright on the 2017 Colts...unlike the others you mentioned.
Irsay can afford anything Ballard wants to do. He can easily afford to spend up the limits of the salary cap and we’re far from being even close to the salary cap limit. What do we have to spend? $65 mill? $70 mill? The most in the NFL.
We’re in position to extend the deals of guys like AC and TYH and others. If we DON’T sign McCoy it won’t be because we don’t have the money to spend. It will be because we decided not to spend that much money. Those are two completely different issues.
O.3% INT rate. GB’s offense was a mess last year...they should be much better this season. LaFleur has coached on some pretty good offenses in recent years (last year’s TEN team excluded). Thought for sure they would
draft a WR...but they have a couple of interesting young guys. I expect Rodgers to “bounce back” this season
from an overall production standpoint.
