Although they are sitting on a 3-1 record, the Green Bay Packers offense hasn't been the most productive this season compared to what it has been in previous years

At this point in the season despite have weapons on their offense like Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Eddie Lacy, the Packers are ranked 25th in yards per game, and 27th in the league in passing yards per game at 209.8, which some have been critical of considering the names on their team.

Yet, head coach Mike McCarthy has been very defensive of his offense, and he hit back at those that have been critical of their production with the ball.

McCarthy said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: “You know, we had 400 yards of offense, so I don’t know why the hell I’ve got to come in here and answer questions about the things you think that went wrong.”

The Packers racked up 406 passing yards and ran for 147 yards against the New York Giants last week, but two turnovers, dropped passes and 23 completions from 45 attempts for Rodgers meant they were only able to score 23 points.

Consistency is the obvious problem for the Packers, and they probably won't be gifted wins for such poor performances against teams that have been more steady since the start of the season, as shown when they played against the Minnesota Vikings.

This week, they play against the Dallas Cowboys, who, if it wasn't for a bad mistake in week one, could also be 5-0 alongside the Vikings. With America's team having a quarterback in Dak Prescott who has been consistent and is yet to throw an interception this year, the Packers must make sure they are on top of their game in order to not lose their second game of the season.
