The Packers are the class of the division. The Bears may have been the division champs in 2010, but there was never any doubt the Packers were the more talented team. The national media knew it, the Packers knew it and the Bears probably knew it too.
The Lions will be much improved next season but they are not ready to make a championship run just yet. Maybe in two or three years, but not now. The true unknown is the Minnesota Vikings. They have a lot of talent on offense and defense, but they are getting older at many key positions and still have many looming questions at the quarterback position. They could easily finish fourth in the division next season, unless they strike gold in the draft or free agency and find a quarterback who can manage the great potential the Vikings possess.
