The Green Bay Packers mustered just 140 yards of offense during their 29-10 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 8. The pathetic production marked a new low for a unit that just hasn't looked like itself this season.

Some are starting to wonder if that's a result of the play-calling, which head coach Mike McCarthy turned over to offensive assistant Tom Clements before the season. When asked if he has considered taking back his old duties, McCarthy shot down the idea, according to Ryan Wood of Press-Gazette Media.

Most of Green Bay's offensive issues seem to stem from personnel problems. The players around quarterback Aaron Rodgers have struggled to make plays with consistency. Still, improved play-calling could help make the most of the players they have. McCarthy made this happen as play-caller from 2006-2014.

Only a handful of offenses have been less productive than the Packers this season (332.1 yards per game, 28th in NFL). Individual playmakers such as wide receiver James Jones and running back James Starks have stepped up in spurts this season. Now, Green Bay needs its stars such as wide receiver Randall Cobb and running back Eddie Lacy to start making game-changing plays on a regular basis.
