Packers look to get struggling offense back in sync


 GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers has a few words of advice for those who are concerned about the Green Bay Packers' struggling offense early in the season.

 He told reporters yesterday the Packers won't "overreact" because it's been just two weeks. Green Bay lost 17-14 to the rival Vikings in Minnesota on Sunday night. With the loss, the Packers are faced with trying to remedy an offense that has been out of sorts in their first two games.

 After overcoming communication snafus to eke out a close win on the road against Jacksonville to start the season, Green Bay fell short against the Vikings because of sloppy play that included four fumbles and two late turnovers by Rodgers.

Rodgers admits that it's taking some time to get the offense settled after the return of trusted deep threat Jordy Nelson and the offseason addition of veteran tight end Jared Cook. But he says he doesn't believe the Packers are "that far off."

Coach Mike McCarthy said the improvements that are needed on offense started right away Monday, when the players came back to work for video review of the game.
