3. Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers needed to make changes this offseason, and they did. The Mike McCarthy era is over. But with so much turnover comes uncertainty. After winning just six games in 2018, has Green Bay done enough this offseason to turn things around? Can a rookie head coach guide the Packers back into the playoffs after missing out the past two years?
Continuity has been key for the Packers over the past decade, but this team will look very different in 2019. Not only will Aaron Rodgers be working in a completely new offense, but there are also a number of new players on the roster. GM Brian Gutekunst has moved on from Clay Matthews, Randall Cobb and Nick Perry, and was aggressive in free agency to bring in talent.
Can Za’Darius Smith, Preston Smith and Rashan Gary give the Packers a dominant pass rush? Will Adrian Amos and Darnell Savage Jr. fix the issues at safety? Have the Packers done enough offensively? The answer could be yes to all three questions, but they are all worth asking.
The biggest question of all is whether Matt LaFleur is the head coach to lead this team to another championship. Time will tell.
