Florio looks at Packers top 5 ‘to-do’ list


Keeping the Packers running game up and effective next season will be one of the keys to a successful 2012. Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

Mike Florio gives the Packers the once over with his posting from Profootballtalk.com

While he doesn’t tell us anything new about what the Packers need to do this off-season to get them back to Super Bowl contention, he does lay it out in a straightforward, no-nonsense manner.

The bottom line is that there are concerns on the offensive side of the ball, the running backs, getting a backup QB, and the offensive line, it’s the defensive side of the ball that will be the key to an improved Packers team next season.

How the Packers address these needs is what’s going to be of most interest this year. Does Ted Thompson go out of his comfort zone and actually address some of these needs through free agency or a trade? Or does he stick with the program and build through the draft?

My guess is that Thompson continues down the conservative road and works the draft like he has in the past. That approach will most likely leave the Packers with some significant holes again – at least that’s my opinion.

Anyway, take a quick look at the video to hear Florio talk about what the Packers have to do to improve next season.
