Assuming being the tallest midget in NFC North is not legit, what do the Packers need to be a legit Super Bowl contender?

Nothing. As long as they have Rodgers, they are a legit contender.

Now, to win it, they need a combination of some luck and health.

Defensive issues are personnel, not coaching. You land a player like Haloti Ngata that eats up blockers AND still gets push, the linebackers are able to do their job more efficiently. The secondary can afford to take some risks.


Offensive issues are purely coaching. Yes, the offensive line is bottom half in the NFL to put it nicely, but they can move the ball with the best of them. I say the issues are coaching because between the 20's they stroke it great, but once inside the red zone the play caller confuses creativity with cuteness.


Special Teams issues are personnel due to injuries. You simply can't keep restocking your special team unit with players off the street and expect All Pro results.


I really hope having the Packers ass handed to them two years in a row by the 49ers sends the coaching staff a wake up call that status quo is a no go. Don't overhaul the whole system, no, but quit being so damn stubborn and consider for a moment you're not the best everything to anything.

In other words ... Packers need a slight dose of humility and I'm hoping the the 49er's losses provided some.

Improvement of the Oline by the return of Bulaga and maybe getting Sherrod going, and getting pressure from the Dline and improvement in the secondary which dline pressure alone will make easier. An upgrade over Jones at LB would be nice also.

It was brutal watching the team without Rodgers but that may have been the best thing for the teams future. It forced us to run the ball and hopefully they will keep doing it in the future. We should have an offense with Rodgers a few receiving threats and Lacy that can face any defense.

We just need a defense that can do the same thing back.

-Safety
-Help in the trenches
-Clean up the red zone scoring (never was an issue before, don't think we were outside of top 5 but maybe one year with Rodgers and McCarthy before this past season)
-Better luck/prevention of injuries
-And we can't get hit too hard with free agents leaving

There are things that need to be fixed, and there are clearly teams that are a step ahead of us at the moment (Denver, New England, Seattle and San Fran come to mind) while there are other teams at or around our level that we have to compete with as well. That said, there are teams much, much further away than us. Things can change quickly in the NFL. Baltimore went from winning the Super Bowl to out of the playoffs.

We need to improve at S.

We need depth on the DL, which may or may not be there at this time.

We need a pass receiving TE. Could be Bostick. Might even be Stoneburner. Maybe Quarless can even be that guy. I don't know. But I don't think Finley will ever play again, for us or any other team.

More depth at C, but Tretter could be that guy.

Those are the personnel issues. Even bigger than those issues are:

1: Staying fucking healthy.

2: Playing for 60 minutes. Sick of watching this team go into lulls against shitty opponents.

Porforis (now) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (4m) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (7m) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (26m) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (28m) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (29m) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (39m) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (40m) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (3h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (6h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (11h) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (15h) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (15h) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (15h) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19h) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
uffda udfa (19h) : I'd rather sit them than play them too compromised.
uffda udfa (19h) : Yeah, Z. More pressure cooker talk and smoked turkeys.
Zero2Cool (19h) : If this were a regular-season game, Nelson, Adams and Allison probably would not play, MM says.
Smokey (20h) : Mason Crosby is ill, hope it's not the Flu.
Smokey (20h) : Great, can we move past that story and get back to the Atlanta game ?
Zero2Cool (21h) : Packers exec Eliot Wolf has withdrawn his name for 49ers' GM job, as @TomPelissero reported. He didn't feel it was the right time.
TheKanataThrilla (22h) : We'll just have to score TDs then.
Zero2Cool (22h) : That's what we know.
Zero2Cool (22h) : Crosby, Mason K Illness
Smokey (22h) : Is He ill or not ?
Smokey (22h) : Raiderpride asked, "Anyone know what Crosby's illness is?"
Zero2Cool (22h) : Davante Adams expected to play- KFFL
Porforis (23h) : Alright, my opinion on Jordy has changed. If he's medically cleared to play, play him.
hardrocker950 (19-Jan) : By Sunday we won't have any WRs
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : Geronimo hamstring, Janis quad. BEAUTIFUL.
Smokey (19-Jan) : Mason Crosby, is his health OK ?
Smokey (19-Jan) : Hello
FLORIDA PACKER88 (19-Jan) : Davis, G-Mo, and Janis will need to step up, but all three did score last time we played ATL!
FLORIDA PACKER88 (19-Jan) : Does Janis become a playoff hero second year in a row? Looks we're gonna have to find out either way regardless. Thank God for a healthy Cob
Smokey (19-Jan) : Is Mason Crosby's health OK ?
