Green Bay Packers: What’s Wrong With Your Team?

Green Bay Packers

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

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 PeppersZiggy 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.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Watch Cardinals' Palmer Throw Ugly Interception

For someone who played like a MVP all season long, Carson Palmer has looked anything but tonight against the Green Bay Packers. If he doesn't redeem himself in the fourth quarter, the No. 2 seed Arizona Cardinals will be sitting at home watching the playoffs with the rest of us next week.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
