Are the Green Bay Packers serious contenders for the Super Bowl?
The Green Bay Packers are an American football team that hails from the Green Bay area of Wisconsin. This iconic team happens to be part of the North Division National football conference (NFC) of the National Football League (NFL). The Packers are the 3rd oldest franchise in the NFL, and their long and widely eventful history can be traced way back nearly a century to when the team was first formed in 1919. Getting cheap Green Bay Packers tickets is never easy but searching online can help ease that process.
At the present time, the Green Bay Packers are the only non-profit and community owned major league professional team in the entire US. With all this unmatched attributes this team has a lot riding for them this season. And if statistics can be believed, they can be one of the top contenders for the 2014-2015 season which kicked off on the evening of April 8. This obviously stems from their unmatched track record, and to this day the Packers are the only team to win 13 league championships. The most recent being the action-packed Super Bowl XLV in 2011.
As most NFL pundits would have it, the Green Bay Packers’ most potent strength, and also some might say weakness, lies in their defense lineup. And with the return of Aaron Rodgers (their star quarterback) the future definitely looks bright for them. Nevertheless, this dependency can also be seen as a weakness, and it’s high time the Packers got an excellent replacement and backup, as putting all your eggs in one basket is not the ideal strategy to make it to the playoffs. The Packers have also enlisted the services of Matt Flyne on a rather short 1 year contract. The head coach Mike Mccarthy, has been quoted severally making allusions to his being keen on developing a much younger quarterback. So Packers fans should keep their fingers crossed on that score.
The cornerback position is another area the Green Bay Packers need to work on, despite the return of Casey Hayward from the hamstring injury that ended his 2013 season. Finally the outside linebacker is also another precarious position, regardless the large pool of talent this team can draw from. Such as the beyond pro bowler Clay Matthews, first round pick Nick Perry, and even the versatile Julius Peppers. All in all the Packers need to get their house in order if they wish to replicate the astounding Super Bowl XLV performance, and bring more renown to their pacesetting record.
