The Green Bay Packers reserves put on a 31 point showing in their opener against the Tennessee Titans Thursday night. Perhaps the performance is just a prelude to what the Packers plan to bring alongside an anticipated return of QB Aaron Rodgers this season.

The glowing new Titans jerseys eventually became a side note to the spanking they took at the hands of the Green Bay Packers this week. With the departure of WR Jordy Nelson to the Oakland Raiders, the Packers are looking to Jimmy Graham, and WR Davonte Adams to assume roles as favorable targets for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense.
While Rodgers and Graham were non participatory, WR Davante Adams however caught a 40 + yard bomb from back-up QB Brett Huntley that looked easier than Kraft macaroni. Running up the scoreboard with new offensive coordinator Joe Philbin will be a focal point for the Packers as the seek to regain dominance in the NFC. First and foremost the Packers will have to deal with three NFC North opponents that have all made significant changes in their locker rooms. For opponents however, slowing up the onslaught of offensive weaponry dressed in Green in yellow will be quite a task this season. You couple this with a noisy Lambeau Field Crowd and you can hypothesis a lot of home victory for the Wisconsin elite. It's all just the Greenhouse Effect.
