The Packers seem to be best known across the nation for their offense, specifically their passing attack led by star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. However, their pass defense was also fifth best in the NFL in 2010.
Led by a core of young players and veterans alike, Green Bay's defense was what won them games in the playoffs and, of course, a championship.
Injuries decimated Dom Capers' force throughout the season and even into the big game, but this unit will be back stronger than ever in 2011 with all its top playmakers ready to go defend their title.
Will a rookie soon to be drafted by Green Bay prove worthy of this list heading into 2012?
Packer backers can only hope.
