Since the Green Bay Packers won Super Bowl XLV after the 2010 season, the team has been to the playoffs three straight years. The Packers have also won three straight NFC North titles. Pretty good, huh?
Perhaps not as good as one might think. The Packers have been 1-3 in the postseason over that time and have never advanced further than the NFC divisional round in the playoffs.
There is also the fact that quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be 31 years old later this year and that he missed almost half of last season with a fractured clavicle.
So what does this all mean? It means that the Packers want to do whatever they can to advance their program to the next stage, which is getting deep into the postseason. Their ultimate goal is winning another Super Bowl.
How does that happen? Players have to be accountable for what they do on the field, both in the regular season and the postseason.
Between free agency and the 2014 NFL draft, the Packers have put some players on notice this season that it is time to perform and produce the results that are expected because of their talents.
I'm listing three of those players in this slideshow.
