quoting just the first few lines from the article to entice you:

Quote:
A few days after the 2011 season, coach Mike McCarthy pledged that the team's inferior tackling would improve substantially in 2012. The numbers show that it did.

The Packers' defense missed 100 tackles in 18 games, a marked improvement from 140 misses in 17 games last season.

On special teams, the reduction in misses from 37 to 19 was dramatic.

Charles Woodson, who led the team in misses a year ago with 18, had just four this season in 49.8% playing time. Sam Shields lowered his misses from 12 to three.

Tramon Williams and Morgan Burnett each missed 11 tackles. They were followed by A.J. Hawk and Brad Jones, nine; Casey Hayward, eight; M.D. Jennings, Jerron McMillian, B.J. Raji and Erik Walden, six; Mike Daniels, four; Davon House, D.J. Smith and Jerel Worthy, three; Jarrett Bush, Clay Matthews and Dezman Moses, two; and Ryan Pickett and C.J. Wilson, one. Three players didn't miss a tackle: Mike Neal, Nick Perry and Frank Zombo.

Another source of stats, etc: the Packers end of season media guide is now out at:

A couple of excerpts:

Packers Dopesheet said:

PACKERS CAPTURE SECOND STRAIGHT NFC NORTH CROWN
The Packers won their second consecutive NFC North title in 2012, the
first time Green Bay won its division in two straight years since the club
captured three consecutive NFC North crowns from 2002-04.

Green Bay finished the regular season with an 11-5 mark (.688), the
fourth straight double-digit win season for the Packers. That matched
the franchise record that was recorded three other times (1929-32,
1995-98, 2001-04). The Packers and the Patriots are the only teams in
the league to post 10-plus wins each of the last four seasons (2009-12).
