Despite a disappointing 2017 season, the Green Bay Packers are looking to make a run in 2018. Here are five reasons why the Pack can win Super Bowl LIII.
2017 was uncharacteristically bad for the perennial Super Bowl contending Green Bay Packers. Since Rodgers has been the undisputed starter, Green Bay has made the playoffs every single season except for one. That one just happened to be Rodgers’ first year starting in the league.
Since that time, the Mike McCarthy-led Packers have rattled off eight straight playoff appearances and five NFC North titles. Needless to say, losing has not been in the DNA of Green Bay since the start of this decade.
Like many teams at the turn of a new NFL season, however, there is always hope and optimism. Some optimism is misguided, but in Green Bay’s case, it is not. For the first time in a while, Green Bay was active in free agency and they had a stellar draft continuing to strengthen two big weaknesses, wide receiver and corner.
In free agency, Green Bay signed touchdown-machine Jimmy Graham, ageless wonder Tramon Williams, Pro-Bowl caliber Muhammad Wilkerson, and consistently underrated Marcedes Lewis. Additionally, they made a much-needed change to their offensive and defensive coordinators. This team is not a team in transition, but rather a team that is ready to contend this season for Super Bowl.
Here are the five main reasons why the Green Bay Packers can actually win the Super Bowl this year.
