While I believe the Packers have had an admirable off-season thus far, there is still one big question mark for this team. The off-season has gone the Packers' way to a great extent...first of all, in that Jordy Nelson got (is gettting) healthy.

Unfortunately, they haven’t been able to get back to the Super Bowl since they last won it in 2010 because their defense hasn’t been as good as their offense.
