The next step

He has, over the past few seasons attempted to put the team in position, but the rebuilding program had him fall short. Now the team seems to fit into that “washed out” mode, still unable to beat the best of the best, or what I call the top handful; top five (5) in the NFL.

As they grow closer in their defensive effort over the past summer, it seems to have worked.  The Green Bay “D” is now in pick-off mode on pass plays, that will throw you for a loss/sack when they need one or stuff your running attempts.

Rodgers and Co. loves to come back in the game to finish off the drive, or even take it 90 yards to score. The thing about playing so well is a young team will tend to prepare well after losses, and not so well after a couple of wins.
