Green Bay Packers: Biggest Strengths and Weaknesses

Packers Wire - USA Today

Finally, football season is upon us. And I’m not talking about a scene where football is just in the background. The regular season is here and once again, football has taken center stage. Fans have endured the formalities of the four or five game preseasons. They’ve delivered their feeble, way too early hot takes. And finally, they’ve watched their one-hit wonders and other favorite players be cut from their respective football teams. But, even through all of that, each team has their strengths and weaknesses.

Not a single team is perfect. Good coaches and teams know this. Fans, however, sometimes get caught up in the aurora of football hype, claiming that their team can do no wrong. But, that’s why I’m here today. I’m here to shatter the notion that your team is flawless.

While every team has a point(s) of weakness, they have also areas where they will excel. The gap between these two is the critical point when formulating your expectations for the upcoming season. The smaller the gap, the harder it is to attack your vulnerabilities. It’s simple strategics, really.

Some teams are able to get away with doing one thing very, very well. However, most cannot do this. There has to be a certain amount of balance between the good, the bad, and the ugly.

For the Green Bay Packers, their long-standing mantra has been offense. And it’s easy to see why. When you have arguably the best quarterback in the entire world on your team, your offense is going to shine. This year should be no different.

For the first time in a long time, the Packers have other reasons to be excited outside of Rodgers. Other strengths that can be used to complement Rodgers’ sometimes other-worldly abilities.

There are, however, holes in the seemingly impenetrable armor that can be exploited. While it is good to be really good at one thing, that balance is crucial to both game-planning and success upon execution of that game-plan. Without further ado, let’s begin.
