Green Bay Packers = 3-0!
That’s the most important news that comes out of this weekend’s game, Green Bay Packers fans.
It should be the most exciting as well, seeing as this is the exact kind of start Mike McCarthy and others around the team talked about all offseason.
After three straight years of starting 1-2, this team has finally managed to come out of the gates strong and plant itself into the elite company right off the bat that they consistently prove themselves to be in during the rest of the season.
This year could have been seen as a possible issue with three potentially challenging matchups to start: at Chicago (while admittedly not a good team, they were more unknown coming in to the year with noted turn-around architect John Fox now leading them), vs Seattle (though they were 0-1 and missing Kam Chancellor, the defense was still formidable), and vs Kansas City (Strong defense led by powerful pass-rushers, powerful run offense led by Jamaal Charles).
Three weeks in, all three of those games ended with Packers victories, and they are looking like the a top team in the NFC and NFL as a whole.
