In 2019, based on the record, the Green Bay Packers were one of the most dominant teams in the entire NFL.
In 2018, the Green Bay Packers had a poor season. They finished the season 6-9-1 and it was clear that heading into the offseason, some moves were needed in the draft and free agency and that is exactly what they did.
In terms of the draft, the Packers made a few impactful picks in the way of Elgton Jenkins and Darnell Savage. Savage immediately took over at safety for Green Bay, while Elgton Jenkins took over at guard while putting up a great rookie season. Not only did the Packers strike gold in the draft, but they also did in free agency.
For a while, the Packers were known for not spending a lot of money in free agency, but under new GM Brian Gutekunst, that changed. During the 2019 offseason, Green Bay made four notable signings, with three of them having major impacts on their success in the 2019 season.
The Packers signed a pair of edge rushers in Preston Smith and Za’Darius Smith. Za’Darius and Preston would quickly become one of the most fearsome edge-rushing tandems in the NFL. Green Bay would also sign former Chicago Bear, Adrian Amos. Amos would pair alongside rookie Darnell Savage and would help turn around the secondary.
With all the new additions that the Packers made in the 2019 offseason, they were looking to improve on their 2019 campaign, and boy did they. The Green Bay would wind up finishing 13-3 and would lose in the conference championship game against the San Fransisco 49ers.
While the Packers had a great 2019 season that they should be proud of, I’m here to tell you that Green Bay may end up regressing in 2020.
