1. Packers win the Super Bowl
This is it. The Packers’ long wait for a Super Bowl return finally comes to an end. It has to.
The last time Green Bay had a dominant defense, it won a championship. The same could be true this season.
We’ve already discussed how good Joe Barry’s defense can be. Even if they don’t end the year ranked No. 1, this group shouldn’t be far off. The Packers’ defense is loaded with first-round picks, Pro Bowlers, and All-Pros.
Barry’s unit will make life difficult for just about any offense they face.
That makes the job for Aaron Rodgers and the offense far easier.
Yes, Davante Adams is gone, but Rodgers is the reigning back-to-back MVP. And let’s not forget that the Packers went undefeated in games Adams missed under Matt LaFleur. There’s still plenty of talent surrounding Rodgers on offense.
Special teams proved costly last January. The Packers responded by hiring veteran coordinator Rich Bisaccia, while also making many offseason moves to improve this phase of the game.
While we shouldn’t expect this group to go from worst to first, significant improvements are likely.
The Packers have a championship roster. I predict that Rodgers will finally win his second ring, which could be the perfect way to end a Hall-of-Fame career.
