The Green Bay Packers are in their usual spot atop the NFC short list of contenders. The Packers still have veteran all-pro quarterback Aaron Rodgers, which gives them a chance to outscore anyone. With the addition of a few young players, and the continued improvement of the veteran core, the Packers should be a serious contender in the NFC.
The Packers' offense starts with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is arguably the league's best player. Rodgers had another pro bowl caliber season in leading the Packers to the NFC playoffs, losing to eventual NFC champion San Francisco. He is expected to put up big numbers in the passing game throwing to veteran receivers Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson. The running game must get better, and the team is counting on returning starter Dujuan Harris, along with rookie Eddie Lacy, drafted from the powerhouse Alabama Crimson Tide. The biggest question mark for the Packers is their offensive line, a unit that struggled to protect Rodgers last year. Injuries have already taken their toll on the offensive line, but hopes are high rookie tackle David Bakhtiari can fill the role of protecting Rodgers' blindside. Bakhtiari comes from the University of Colorado.
The Packers defense struggled against the 49ers in the playoffs, and many fans are anxious to see if it becomes a trend. Defensive end Datone Jones, a rookie drafted in the first round from UCLA is expected to make a huge impact. Defensive lineman CJ Wilson has had a great camp, and is expected to continue his high level of play. Of course the Packers' defense centers around pro bowl linebacker Clay Matthews, one of the best in the league. If the team can get consistent play from the secondary, featuring Sam Shields, and a veteran group, the Packers will not disappoint their fans.
The season is upon us and expectations are high in Green Bay. The Packers made news this past week by signing free agent and veteran quarterback Vince Young to be the backup to Rodgers. The excitement is brewing, and the fans known as the cheese heads have plenty to look forward to from their team which features two of the league's biggest stars in Rodgers and Matthews. The season starts on September 8th as the Packers take on the San Francisco 49ers.
