Above all else, I think the Packer defense became more athletic. With the exception of Mathews one the front seven, Perry and Worthy will be quicker than anyone else plus I like their strength and size. While comments have been made about their effort not being what it should be I think the leaders (Woodson, Mathews) will take it upon themselves to get the highest level of effort out of them. Boys, this ain't college anymore. There is always someone to take your spot. I believe with a full off-season of ota's' mini-camps and training camp the Packer defense will be much improved. They have one of the best coaching staffs in the NFL and leadership amongst the veterans that will demand effort.

With one of the better strength and conditioning coaches,that will whip them into shape..
ENJOY our run,GM,HC and staffs dont last forever..Not saying TT or MM will go anywhere soon but.
I wonder if MM will ever land a GM job at some point?

Good point. MM has probably learned a lot from TT. If the Packers keep having success the staff will be looked at for possible promotions. Still wished we had a good consistent RB to go to, especially when the weather changes. Sometimes a little ball control is a good thing.

I agree,but,like i said,i think the oline will be a bit better this year,so that will help.Finley is a year playing past his injuries and maybe he can also cut back on his dropped passes ( 1 prob.doesnt have to do with the other but) BUT. catching drills which im sure will be address..Tackling drills addressed and an improved oline with experience and a year under the belt of Newhouse/Sherrod all should help the running game. Brandon Saine looked decent and should be better now that he knows what to expect.Green is a question mark coming back from an ACL.I just hope Starks can bulk up and cut back on injuries( as a pro and with access to world class strength and conditioning gyms,coaches ect and the cash for personal trainners) one would think he can bulk up a bit,add some whatever and cut back on some of the nagging injuries ( that all players have during season,but,if its not as bad,it wont slow them down as much).I think the Running game will be a bit better.Every year MM says i want to run the ball and we see whats happens but.A nice drive toward the end of the game would be nice to keep the drive alive and eat clock,but, with a great qb like Rodgers back there killing clock shouldn't be a problem unless Finley and company are dropping passes again.
