Aaron Rodgers may have a whole new coaching staff to work with next season with the Green Bay Packers Antonio Morrison Jersey , but don’t expect the offense to change too much under the new regime.According to, offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said on Monday that the new coaching staff isn’t looking to completely tear down the type of playbook that Rodgers has thrived in throughout his run as a starter in Green Bay.“You don’t want to necessarily treat it as a start over because he’s done so many great things,” Hackett said. “I think the whole thing is about working together and kind of bonding together and understanding this isn’t about me, it’s not about (head coach) Matt (LaFleur), it’s not about Aaron. It’s about the Green Bay Packers. It’s about what’s best for the entire organization and the offense and I think it’s just about making that relationship with him.”Hackett joined Matt LaFleur’s staff with the Packers this offseason after being fired by the Jacksonville Jaguars in late November. On one hand, the Packers needed to switch up the situation in Green Bay as the Aaron Rodgers/Mike McCarthy marriage had clearly run its course. On the other hand, Rodgers has been among the league’s best quarterbacks for a long time and there isn’t a need to completely reinvent the wheel.That doesn’t mean there won’t be some tweaks and changes to the system LaFleur and Hackett will implement moving forward.“A lot of the same concepts kind of cross over,” Hackett said. “I just think kind of some of the emphasis of some of the thing that we want to do are going to be different. When you take a guy like Aaron Rodgers – who is a very good football player, I mean, he’s kind of one of those guys where you can kind of pretty much do a lot of everything. I think a lot of it is going to carry over. I think some of the language will be different but it’s going to be a lot of the same premises for him.” Over the next two weeks, Acme Packing Company will take a look each position group on the Green Bay Packers and provide insight into how they performed during the 2018 season. Today, we examine the tight ends.After a strong 2017, even with a plethora of injuries, the Packers seemed to feel confident with the offensive line going into 2018. However, the 2018 season ended up with some mixed reviews. Let’s give a quick overall recap before getting into the individual notes.David Bakhtiari has taken over the mantle from the recently retired Joe Thomas as the best pass blocker in the NFL and we saw a significant improvement from center Corey Linsley, as well. Lane Taylor and Bryan Bulaga played through various injuries for a good chunk of the season as they held down their respective positions. We also saw the team find a couple of competent backups that could make some waves while looking for a starting position in the future.The Packers moved on from right guard Jahri Evans in hopes that Justin McCray would take a hold of the position. His play wasn’t anything special and he struggled with injuries. McCray could not get the position back after he was healthy and the Packers turned to Byron Bell, who didn’t fare too well.Here are some more in depth individual thoughts on the offensive line and the APC grade for 2018:STARTERSDavid Bakhtiari - LTWe’ll start with the easiest player to evaluate on the offensive line. David Bakhtiari is arguably the best left tackle in the NFL today. He gained his first First Team All-Pro selection (he has two Second Team All-Pro selections) this year but was once again absent of the Pro Bowl. If you’re upset about the Pro Bowl snub Jimmy Graham Jersey , don’t be. Bakhtiari doesn’t need to be named to or attend a pointless scrimmage to show that he’s one of the best players in the league. He agrees as well, as he declined to go to the game as an alternate.Bakhtiari ranked number one by Pro Football Focus in pass protection and while his run grade isn’t as high, it really doesn’t matter. The Packers threw the ball 640 times this season compared to only 333 rushing attempts. Having the best pass blocker in the NFL keeps Aaron Rodgers safe on his blind side and, at only 27 years old, Bakhtiari is hitting his prime as one of the best in the league. Lane Taylor - LGLane Taylor had a subpar year at left guard in compared to previous seasons. Taylor usually has one of the best jobs being sandwicheeverything while starting nine games at right guard. Bell looked overmatched at points in every game this year. He was regularly beat in pass protection and didn’t get any push in the run game. To add insult to his poor play, Bell ended the season on injured reserve with a knee injury.Right guard should definitely be the top focus on improving the offensive line in the offseason. There isn’t much in the free agent pool at the guard spot, with Mark Glowinski re-signing with the Colts, so Brian Gutekunst will need to either focus early in the draft at selecting someone or letting one of the younger players take the reigns similar to how Lane Taylor locked in the left guard spot after Josh Sitton was released in 2016. Bryan Bulaga - RTBryan Bulaga had a typical year compared to most of the years in his career. When he was healthy and playing, he was a very good right tackle. His strength comes in his pass protection. Even with all the knee injuries, he still has a quick kick slide and uses his hands as well as anyone. Bulaga is the grinder who knows where his weakness is and uses his technique and strength to make up for those deficiencies. The biggest kick with Bulaga has been his injury problems. While he started 14 games this season, he was in and out of many of those games with varioaverage five yards per attempt, the second highest yards per attempt in the league. Sure a lot of that might be due to Aaron Jones breaking some huge gains but he’s not getting all those yards without someone opening holes for him. While the right guard position was the weak point, the rest of the starters stayed healthy most of the year and we saw Jason Spriggs and Lucas Patrick prove to be quality backups. The future remains fairly solid for new offensive line coach Adam Stenavich. He will have to find a replacement at right guard but the rest should be around in 2019. One thing is for sure: another year of the majority of the offensive line returning means a strong cohesion going forward.
