5 Simple Solutions to Green Bay Packers' Biggest Issues
Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports
Some of the Packers' biggest problems will require significant offseason moves to address, but the following five solutions will get them through the final three weeks of the season.

As the Green Bay Packers have gone 1-4-1 so far in Aaron Rodgers' absence, it has become clear that the team has many other problems that have contributed to its struggles aside from the biggest problem of losing its starting quarterback.

Such problems have included missed tackles on defense, poor red-zone performance and failure to convert third downs.

The offensive line receives an honorable mention but isn't included as one of the five problems because its struggles are due largely to injuries, and it was performing at a high level for much of the beginning of the season.

Some of these issues have been compounded by the loss of Rodgers—a struggling offense puts undue pressure on the defense as well—but the Packers must address them now rather than hope that Rodgers' return (the date of which is still unknown) will fix them.

No doubt the Packers will take a longer, harder look at the problem areas in the offseason, and certain players or coaches will be let go as a result. But the following five simple solutions, ranked in order of the problems that pose the lowest threat to the Packers' success to those that pose the highest, are ones that the Packers can employ now in an attempt to salvage the season after a spirit-boosting win over Atlanta on Sunday.
