Your excitment is great, you would be more excited if you were a Packer fan though. Packers drafted for defense in 2012, they went from 31st to 11th. Many of those rookies saw extensive playing time, and now enter the 2nd year with experience and youth.<quoted text>In other words the youth and talent we have we were 16 last year says we will be top 10 this year. Nfl Network said Aaron Rodgers will have to outscore every team if they are to win and your best defensive player is injury prone due to steroids. Clay Matthews is the next Shawne Merriman.

The vikings don't know who is playing MLB or if anyone even can. Bishop is suposed to start but hasn't practiced or played in a year and nobodyu knows if he can even play. I won't be suprised if he doesn't make it... then what or who what happens?
Who replaces Winfield? Robinson? He has never ever played the slot. EVER! How does that effect the run D? AW was an elite run defneder, one of the best. http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcnorth/post/_/id/57... and played and played almost 90% of the defensive snap too.

Harrison is a good S but the others are not, and DBs are all questions marks for now. When is the last time one of the CBs played a full season in the NFL? They have a combined 2 INTs between them!!!! Cook has no INTs in 3 years! LOL!
DL line is solid though.
