As the Chargers host the Packers this Sunday, let’s take a look and see what supporters of the opposition have to say about the matchup.

The Chargers host the Packers this week, so Wisconsin sports site Dairyland Express asked Bolt Beat a few questions ahead of the matchup. In return, they answered a few of our own questions. Special shout out to Paul Bretl for the collaboration, and for the following responses.

Can anything be learned from an opposing point of view? Are the Chargers destined to get blown out on Sunday? Take a look through the next five questions and responses, and post a reaction in the comments section below.

What’s the biggest difference you see between Mike McCarthy and Matt LaFleur so far?

Particularly during the last few seasons under Mike McCarthy, this offense was completely reliant on Aaron Rodgers. If he played well, they usually won but if he didn’t they oftentimes lost. However, under Matt LaFleur, they have been much more balanced. In 2018, the Packers threw the ball more than anyone but this season, they are ranked 15th in passing percentage. We’ve also seen LaFleur utilize the running backs in the passing game much more and he’s also gotten the tight ends involved more often as well. What this has done is taken some of the burden off of Rodgers’ shoulders.
