Can The Green Bay Packers Pick Up Where They Left Off?

Aaron Rodgers had a great season, Charles Woodson was named Defensive Player of the Year, the REST of the defense is killer, their running game is solid, and Aaron has good receivers.  Can they just pick up where they left off?

I don’t see why not.

They lost their wildcard game in gut-wrenching fashion on a fluke play and though the Cardinals earned that win “fair and square” the Packers could have easily won that game.  In fact, they almost had it won a couple times.

With Brett Favre uncertain about a return that gives Aaron Rodgers even more time to become the QB he could be.  It’s no secret that Rodgers could get better, but better than this season is pretty freakin’ good.  Just imagine how much farther he can go in ANOTHER season of working hard ALL offseason.

The defense is relatively young and guys like A.J. Hawk, B.J. Raji, and Aaron Kampman will come back very hungry since they were sitting on the sideline when they got their hearts ripped out of their chest in overtime.

The first thing we need to think about is the fact that the Packers are young and hungry and they have a young coach.  That combination should be very powerful in the NFL.  The league rewards youth and speed so a young team that is fast is in good shape.

I’m pretty sure that the Packers are going to have a good draft, but what do they do?  Improve their lines?  Add depth?  Find a good backup QB?  Maybe a suitable replacement for Donald Driver when he retires (which is coming sooner than later)?  I don’t know, but when you have this many options and you aren’t desperate you tend to be in good shape.

2010 is going to be a good year in Green Bay…
