Green Bay Packers 2023-24 NFL Season Recap

Green Bay Packers NFL Season Recap

Green Bay Packers NFL Betting

After coming up just short of the Super Bowl and getting bounced from the playoffs by the San Francisco 49ers for the second time in three seasons, the Green Bay Packers decided to move on from Aaron Rodgers after seeing its three-year playoff run come to an end. The decision to hand the keys to the franchise over to Jordan Love looked bleak at best through the first eight weeks of the NFL betting season. However, the lights turned on in Week 9 when the Packers throttled the then Brett Rypien-led Los Angeles Rams 20-3 as short home favorites. From there, the Cheeseheads would go on to win six of their final nine games and return to the playoffs. They gave the Niners all they could handle in the division round as well before ultimately bowing out to put a wrap on the 2023-24 campaign.

The Green Bay team that took the field against the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers is undoubtedly one that will be in the thick of both the NFC North and NFC title hunts for many years to come provided upper management adds to what already looks to be a promising roster. With a healthy Aaron Jones in the backfield, there aren’t many defenses in this league that can get the best of them going by what Love showed NFL bettors in his first go-round manning the ship. What an impressive showing Love dished out establishing himself as one of the best – if not the best – young quarterback to lead an NFL offense over the course of the year. Only six quarterbacks threw for more yardage than the 4,159 yards he dished out over the course of the 17 game regular season schedule. His 32 touchdown passes ranked second only to Brock Purdy (36)! And to think he got the job done with a largely green pass catching corps anchored by a bunch of rookies and a second-year player.

Jayden Reed, Dontayvion Wicks, Luke Musgrave, and Tucker Kraft all played integral roles contributing to what ended up being the league’s No. 12 ranked passing attack. Reed stuck out as the best of the bunch reeling in 64-of-94 targets for 793 yards and a whopping 8 TD all the while adding another 119 yards and two scores as a ball carrier. Wicks flashed (39/581/4) as well, but both guys need to add some muscle to their respective frames with the injury bug getting them for nagging injuries a bulk of the season. Regardless, things are looking way up for a young Packers offense that closed the year ranked sixth in DVOA. It’s insane how tremendous Green Bay’s front office does when it comes to assembling dominance on the offensive side of the ball year in and year out. It makes me sick as a die-hard Bears fan! We’re all nothing if not jealous of the way this team has gone about its business with Brett Favre, Rodgers, and Love representing the team’s only three starting quarterbacks dating back to 1992.

The defense however leaves some cause for concern with it closing the season ranked No. 17 overall and getting ripped on the ground for better than 128 yards per game (No. 28) and healthy 4.5 yards per carry (No. 24). While the pass defense proved to be a strength (No. 9) with the defense also ranked No. 12 in sack percentage (7.4%), it still ended up ranking No. 27 in DVOA largely due to the inability to shut opposing ground games down. Even when trailing by a touchdown in the fourth quarter, the Niners still looked to the ground with regularity with it paying off after Christian McCaffrey ripped the Green and Gold for 98 yards and a couple scores. Shoring up that front seven will be one of GM Brian Gutekunst’s main priorities this offseason.

Green Bay wasn’t expected to be a player entering the regular season evidenced by linemakers bestowing them with a 7.5-game season win total; the franchise’s lowest since 2007. Expected to finish third in the division and not punch a ticket to the playoffs, the Packers went on to win nine games, finished second in the division standings (+280), participated in the second season (+165), and won a playoff game in shocking fashion against the Cowboys. Not bad for the inaugural season of the post-Rodgers era!

Green Bay Packers 2024 Offseason

The front office will have 11 draft picks to utilize at the end of April along with $8M in cap space to utilize upon a whopping 17 free agents; should the team choose to resign any of them. Though the secondary proved to be the strength of the defense, it still needs to be majorly shored up at the safety position. The team would do itself a solid to bring in some cornerback help as well due to the injury-plagued season Jaire Alexander just put forth. With the recent firing of Joe Barry, the Packers will also be in the market for a new defensive coordinator. Offensively, free agency begins and ends with the re-inking of Aaron Jones who is far and away the best offensive player on the roster; when healthy. Inserting some new blood along the offensive line is also a must provided upper management wants to make his job a bit easier moving forward. Green Bay knows what it’s doing, so expect the roster to be bolstered entering the 2024-25 season.

Founded in 1921, the Green Bay Packers are one of the NFL’s crown jewel legacy franchises. Green Bay has 11 NFL championships and four Super Bowl titles.

The Packers have the distinction of winning three consecutive NFL championships in 1929-31 and 1965-67.

Curly Lambeau was the first great Packer coach that led that original Green Bay dynasty. He led Green Bay to six NFL titles in his career. The Packers' home stadium, Lambeau Field, is named after the legendary championship coach.

Following a long period in the NFL wilderness from 1945 through 1958, the Packers hired Vince Lombardi as head coach and general manager in 1959. The rest, as they say, is history.

Lombardi ushered in an era of glory that firmly established the Packers as a legendary franchise. Green Bay won five NFL championships and the first two Super Bowls under Lombardi.

From 1968-to 1992, the Packers were again in the wilderness. But then-general manager Ron Wolf and head coach Mike Holmgren combined to set a standard of excellence that has lasted until now. Green Bay has missed the playoffs only seven times since 1993.

Green Bay has a litany of former stars and Hall of Famers. It also boasts three of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. Bart Starr, Brett Favre, and Aaron Rodgers are generational and Hall of Fame quarterbacks.

The Packers have 25 players inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Also, Lombardi and Wolf were installed in the Coach and Executive class.
