The Green Bay Packers have done some good things in the preseason. Aaron Rodgers looks fit and sharp and the no huddle offense looks to be ready to impose itself on defenses from the start of the year. The defensive pass-rush has already shown improvement even though they are playing things close to the vest right now and Julius Peppers looks to be a guy that can help us get to the next level in that regard.
