Projecting the Biggest Roadblocks in the Packers Pursuit of the NFC North Title

In the six years that Mike McCarthy has been the head coach of the Green Bay Packers, the team has won the NFC North title twice. Once in 2007, when the Packers lost in the NFC Championship Game to the New York Giants, and also last season, when the Packers lost again to the Giants, this time in the NFC Divisional Playoff.

Both games were played at Lambeau Field too.

When the Packers won Super Bowl XLV, the team advanced to the playoffs as a Wild Card team. The 6th seed of the NFC, in fact.

In the four years that the Packers have not won the NFC North in the McCarthy-era, the Chicago Bears have won the division twice (2006 and 2010), and the Minnesota Vikings have won the division twice (2008 and 2009).

Right now, going into Week 7 of the 2012 NFL season, Da Bears lead the NFC North with a 4-1 record, while the Vikings are in second place with a 4-2 mark. The Packers are 3-3, while the Detroit Lions are in last place with a 2-3 record.

There is plenty of season left for the Packers to take control and still win the NFC North title. I'm going to list five roadblocks that the team faces as the Pack attempts to win their third NFC North title in the McCarthy regime.
