Coming off a Super Bowl victory, the Green Bay Packers are predicted by most to return to the big game again this year.
There is no doubt that the Packers have an outstanding football team. During the 2011 season opener, every eye in America was watching as the Packers put up 42 points and proved to be worthy contenders again this year.
Unless the injury bug bites them, again.
Last year, a handful of starters and important players went down, only to have their positions filled by players who were unheard of, yet effective (who the hell is Erik Walden?). Now, don’t get me wrong, the Packers are a great football team, but if they lose 16 players to IR again this year, don’t expect them to be hoisting the Lombardi Trophy in Indianapolis, let alone make the playoffs.
Here are seven Packers who will play the biggest roles in Green Bay bringing the Lombardi Trophy back home.
