It seems like no one likes the vikes to take the division back even if Favre is coming back. Probably because A-Rod plays for the Packers. And he looks a lot better than Brett. He also has the new best TE in the league in Jermichael Finley.
The one thing that the Packers don't really have is a home run hitter. They have that ability to drive the ball down your throat more than any other team but I feel like that need could have been addressed with an aging Donald Driver. Corner was also not addressed.
I think the Pack's run is solid with Grant, who will return to the top 10 RB people thought he would be last year. Jennings disappointed at last year, but just like Grant last year, he will be better when people don't expect him to be.
It also seems like the 'Dom Capers experiment' worked out last year, they lead the league in turnover ratio and run defense. Well, when you have the Defensive player of the year in Woodson, it isn't very hard. The Packers also have the best front 7 in the league, yeah, I said it. Jolly, Raji, Jenkins, Hawk, Brad Jones, Barnett, and Matthews. All of these players are underrated and combined provide the most effective run plugging, QB rushing Defense in the NFL.
The addition of Bryan Bulaga, makes this O-Line scary all of a sudden. This team is dangerous... Do not be surprised if this team goes all the way. I kid you not. They are bitter after losing that playoff heartbreaker, and Mike McCarthy will come into 2010 with a 14-2 team.
Playoff Prediction: 1 seed; win vs. Atlanta, win vs. Vikings, Super Bowl XLV win over Ravens, congratulations
Bold Prediction: I will probably be wrong.
