This bid may seem high, but I assure you, the Packers will be VERY dangerous this year. The Packers are No. 1 because they have a legitimate shot at winning it all.
This is the year Aaron Rodgers proves he is worth being ranked among the Peyton Mannings and Tom Bradys of the league, and he will have help.
The Packers have one of the deepest receiving corps in the league with Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, and the next elite TE of this decade, Jermichael Finley.
Aaron Rodgers and these receivers will tear teams to pieces this season and little will be done to slow them down.
The Pack also have a surprisingly productive rushing attack with Ryan Grant. He has amassed 1,200 yards for two consecutive seasons and shows no signs of slowing.
Their defense will help them put away teams this year. Last year, in a transition year, the defense was ranked No. 2 overall last year and first at stopping the run.
In the second year in the new 3-4 system, the Packers look to improve and be even more productive. Having the reigning defensive MVP on your team doesn't hurt either.
The Packers are my Super Bowl pick for this year and with all the talent on this team, it's not hard to see why.
