Green Bay Packers: What’s Wrong With Your Team?
The Green Bay Packers are a perennial playoff powerhouse. They aren’t a Super Bowl team, however, especially with a few setbacks they’ve had already. One of the biggest setbacks was that they lost left tackle Bryan Bulaga for the entire season due to a torn ACL. Without Bulaga, the Packers might have to rely on rookies including David Bakhtiari to protect elite quarterback Aaron Rodgers‘ blindside, and with all three division rivals having legitimate pass rushing threats in Julius Peppers, Ziggy Ansah and Jared Allen respectively, that might give head coach Mike McCarthy and offensive coordinator Tom Clements some sleepless nights and migraines.
Also there are real questions about the Packers’ running attack as they have two rookies in Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin who showed some promise based on their college careers that will likely be the feature backs in 2013. Their running game was so putrid in 2012 that they didn’t have a single rusher that broke even 500 yards, and they only had nine rushing touchdowns total as a team. To show how bad the Packers’ rush offense was, quarterback Aaron Rodgers was the second leading rusher on the team with 259 yards and two touchdowns.
All in all, it shall be interesting to see if the Packers can correct what is wrong with their team sooner rather than later. And if they can, the NFC North and beyond including the Super Bowl could be well within their reach.
