Aaron Rodgers and the entire Packers offense received a lot of criticism from the media after a 4-6 start to the year in 2016, but Rodgers finished the season playing at an MVP level and leading Green Bay to eight straight wins on their way to the NFC Championship Game. Fantastic play from the Offensive line and moving Ty Montgomery to running back also spurned the incredible turnaround, and both elements will be key for a successful 2017 campaign. With a few new faces in Rodgers' supporting cast will the Packers look like the offense at the beginning or the end of last season?

QB

There's not much to say about Aaron Rodgers' greatness that hasn't been said before.

Media members (ahem, Colin Cowherd) were questioning Rodgers' leadership ability and "condescending attitude" during the Packers' slow start, but those critics were totally silenced once the calendar turned to December and Rodgers caught fire. Green Bay fans can expect greatness again from Rodgers in 2017 as he's one of the NFL's most consistent performers.

RB

Running back may be the most interesting position group on this Packers' offense. Eddie Lacy has seen the end of his Packers days as he signed with Seattle this offseason leaving Ty Montgomery as the team's lead back. Montgomery put up some impressive numbers once he was given the starting job running for 5.94 yards per carry. Montgomery's abilities as a former WR also make him a matchup nightmare for linebackers in the passing game.

The Packers selected Jamaal Williams out of BYU in the fourth round of this year's draft, and he could be very productive as the second-string RB in this offense.

WR/TE

Rodgers' receivers also came under fire during the 4-6 start to the season, but their play improved along with their QB in their late-season run.

Jordy Nelson looked like he recovered well from that knee injury that sidelined him in 2015 with a league-leading 14 receiving TD's and nearly 1,300 yards last season. Randall Cobb and an improved Davante Adams round out one of the best wide receiver trios in the league. Green Bay will replace Jared Cook with Martellus Bennett at tight end next season, which has the potential to be an upgrade at the position.

OL

Green Bay's offensive line may be the best pass-protecting unit in the league as they gave Aaron Rodgers an incredible amount of time in the pocket in 2016 where he was able to pick apart opposing secondaries. The Packers lost guard TJ Lang this offseason but found an extremely capable replacement in Jahri Evans. As long as this unit stays healthy, Aaron Rodgers will be very comfortable behind this dominant group of hog mollies.

The Packers' offense ranked 4th in offensive DVOA last season and has been one of the most consistent groups in the league with Aaron Rodgers under center. With no discernible weaknesses on offense, expect the Packers to continue putting up a lot of points in 2017.
