Packers QB Aaron Rodgers says offense has room to grow

Aaron Rodgers simply doesn’t know exactly what to expect in Thursday’s opener against the Bears.

“I think everybody needs to understand this is going to be the first iteration of our offense, and because it’s a new scheme and there are new pieces, this is going to grow from this point,” Rodgers said, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. “I’m excited about the stuff we have in and the stuff we’ve been working on in camp. There’s going to be even more. I think that’s the exciting part. I like the foundational start for this offense. I think it could be tough to stop because of the stress it puts on defense with their eye control and pattern-reading and reading the alignments. But we have a lot of room to grow from what we put on the field on Thursday.”

Fantasy Impact: 

As the story went on to say, it will take time for Rodgers and new coach Matt LaFleur to learn each other’s preferences and tendencies, and that will evolve as they’re on the fly this year. LaFleur himself admitted as much Sunday, saying: “I’ll have a better answer for you here in a couple weeks about where I think we are.”
