Aaron Rodgers will be thrilled when Jordy Nelson comes back. Last season proved to be fool’s gold early — a 6-0 start despite losing Jordy Nelson — once the 5-11 San Francisco 49ers showed the design of how to short circuit the Packers’ once-feared offense: daring the Packers to throw by playing press coverage with a single-high safety.

(Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)When 49ers coach Chip Kelly left Philadelphia, the efficacy of his offense was still very much in question, with many believing that NFL defenses are too quick and powerful for Kelly’s fast-paced but simplified scheme.

No dumb guy, Miller knew a position switch was ahead for him. That’s why he has dropped 15 to 20 pounds since the start of last
