The problem with the Packers is the defense. They simply cannot cover the offense when it can???t put points on the board.
The Packers scored less than 21 twice last season. Guess what two games.
The Packers were actually OUTGAINED in yardage last season- 412 to 405, how do you go 15-1 like that?
Much as people love the Pack, I think they are in trouble. I don???t like the draft, they have a SHORT secondary, and if Woodson, who is already slowing down, isn???t able to play safety, this team could be in trouble in 2-3 years.
But for now?
They swap the NFC South and AFC West for the AFC South and NFC West, so a 15-1 schedule got EASIER. They do get the Giants and Saints as bonus games.
I think they lose to the Saints (81-70) and at the Texans, but Roll to the SuperBowl.

We know they were ranked 32nd on defense last year, so didn't they make substantial improvements?

Dan and I went back and forth on this on text. I don't think they got better at all. He is of the opinion that the pass rush is going to make it improve.
