​The ​Packers passing game has been less effective than usual in 2018. The team is tied for the 17th in the NFL in terms of passing touchdowns, despite having arguably the ​most gifted quarterback in the game at their disposal. 


Anonymous sources with knowledge seems to have pinned down the main issue with their passing attack, suggesting that Green Bay's wide receivers coach David Raih is to blame for their struggles. 

The Packers targeted wide receivers in the 2018 draft, selecting three of them in the middle rounds. They picked Missouri's J'Mon Moore in the fourth round, Marques Valdez-Scantling out of South Florida in the fifth round and ​Equanimeous St. Brown from Notre Dame in the sixth round. 


One would expect that the Packers would be able to develop the young wide receivers on which they spent so much draft capital, but that hasn't been the case. Within the locker room, fingers are pointing at Raih, suggesting that he is the "weak link" on the coaching staff, and that he has struggled to get a solid understanding of Green Bay's offense. 

With the Packers not qualifying for the playoffs for the second consecutive season, they will have time to address the issue on their coaching staff.


This season St. Brown caught 33 passes for 515 yards and four touchdowns. Valdez-Scantling logged 30 receptions for 463 yards and two touchdowns, while Moore made just one reception all year.
