There are some nasty rumors that the offense has plateaued. Let me reassure you that is not the case. Aaron will be back to lead the offense and he will have a full compliment of weapons...and a running game to boot. They do have to rectify some positional depth issues. Otherwise, they should be fine as long as they have no major injuries to their starters. Mind you they always start the year off slow because the regular season is the first substantial snaps the starters have taken with McCarthy’s light preseason workload. R-E-L-A-X...
The defense...did we have one in years past? This side of the ball needs MAJOR attention. First, they do not have proven starting caliber players at cornerback and lack a substantial pass rush to put fear in opposing offenses. That is a recipe for disaster with todays pass happy game transformation. They are sorely lacking difference makers at linebacker. A new coaching staff lead by new Defensive Coordinator Mike Pettine will be put to task with developing a good defense quickly.
It can't be understated how important the next 5 years are going to be in terms of how the Packers handle Aaron Rodgers during the latter part of his career.
Unless you've been living under a rock the past 4 months, you no doubt have noticed that there is a lot of change going on with the Packers organization on the whole. Change can be tough, especially when it happens to a steady, consistent team & front office like the Green Bay Packers of the past +10 years.
Hey All! We have a huge offseason in full swing and the NFL draft is on the horizon. I will have an upcoming blog regarding how the Packers should handle their 2018 draft. They have a total of 12 picks, and all 4 compensatory picks can be used for trade purposes (first established in 2017). This draft will be vitally important in filling many holes up and down the roster as well as securing a few starting positions.
Soon, you'll see thoughts regarding the upcoming 2018 Draft as well as any off-season trades. We don't have any firm plans, but some things I was thinking would be cool to have Andy and Jeremy do:
