Vic Ketchman didn't want to answer this one (understandable), but I thought it was an interesting question so I answered it in Part 2 of Breaking Down a "Special" Offense this morning. But Packernation always has an opinion. So today's Packernation poll asks the question; "Which returning player will have the most impact for the Packers this year? It's a tough question to answer because different positions measure impact in different ways. For Davante Adams and Richard Rodgers it may be touchdowns or yards after the catch. For Ha Ha Clinton-Dix it could be passes defensed and of course, interceptions have a big…

Everybody is hoping that this year's Packers team will start where last year's left off (minus the four-minute circus at the end).
