Packer Nation Poll: NFC North Record

  4 months ago     433 Views     2 Comments  

The NFC North sent two teams to the playoffs last year, one of which made it all the way to the NFC Championship in the Green Bay Packers. With training camp at hand, the Packers look to put together a team that can repeat the successes of last year without the early offensive disconnect and through-line of injuries and bad play from the defensive backfield. Several veteran players will be missing from training camp this year leaving a gap in leadership. However, several free agents have been added and an infusion of speed on the defense has combined to provide…

Aaron Rodgers has been a stalwart for the Packers since he took the helm after the exit of Brett Favre. Early in his career, he got a Super Bowl, but he hasn’t been back since. While the defense has taken (rightly so at times) much of the heat, there is one aspect of the Packers offensive attack that is a bit uncertain going into the 2017 season and which could be important to their chances of going the distance this time.

As a "replacement for Micah" though, he won't have the veteran savvy so his response time may be a little slower right out of the gate. So all this…

When fans in Packer Nation hear the name Kentrell Brice, they inevitably think of a hard hitter. Though 27 tackles and 4 assists will not jump off the page at anyone, Brice's goal-line thud against the Falcons in week 8 and in particular his origami fold-up of Cole Beasley in the Divisional round of the playoffs last year definitely leap out. Brice did more than flash his heavy hitting ways, he showed that it was his calling card. But there is a flip side to the coin of the hard hitting safety and with youngsters like Josh Jones presumably taking…

How big of a difference can Kenny Clark make?  I think it can be a profound difference for a defense that needed backfield help and got it, but also has the benefit in Kenny Clark of an up-and-comer on the Packers defensive line. There are many reasons to believe that Clark will be better than last year, there are reasons to believe that an improvement from Clark can benefit the defense as a whole. Let's dive right into some of them now.  (more…)
