On offense I would like to see Aaron take more of what the defense gives them rather than forcing it downfield. Keep drives alive and keep the defense of the field.

On defense just generally more aggressive. We should have better personnel with Perry back, more experience for our 2nd year players, perhaps Huff, and maybe a draft choice or 2 that can help. Has Woodson signed anywhere yet?

I would just like the defense to yield less points than the offense puts up. How? I don't have a clue. Maybe less Ryan Pickett and A.J. Hawk on the field would be a good place to start?

On offense-Shorter pass plays and running to control the clock to grind down defenses and less throwing deep into defenses that are just sitting back. The offense looked so much better and "organic" at the end of last year once Mike McCarthy started going to the run more rather than seemingly trying to force a hot streak out of Rodgers and getting him sacked constantly. I hope that with losing Jennings, Mike McCarthy will go with a "less is more" approach to offense.

On defense-less of the 2 DL stuff

I want to see a complete shift to a run oriented power game on offense. Smash the opposing D in the face and wear them out. My feelings all along have been that our personnel on the OL were compromised by falling back into pass blocking sets too often, to the point where we were not as effective in the passing game. I think they are better than they have shown, and I do anticipate EDS will play a big part of our success up front at C.

Most of this is attitude. I want to see this change, so that no one will want to play us. Add a RB to Harris and we can torch the opposition by giving them a heavy dose of both runners, opening up the field for the passing game, while taking the heat off of Rodgers.

As for the defense, I think the only way we improve is by adding personnel on the DL and at S, while hoping our LBs get healthy and improve. I think they should play better with more effective DL play.

Most of this is personnel. Capers simply did not have the players to run an effective 3-4 with all of the injuries we incurred over the past two years.

This would be great. Then we can release that useless Rodgers rather than have him take up salary space.

Seriously. We could then stop going to the playoffs and I might ascend on the Season Tickets list at a faster rate.

You have a freaking MVP at QB! Everytime you take the ball out of his hands, the other team benefits. I will agree that the Packers need to improve some in their running game. But to switch over to a run oriented power game? That's a fantasy come true for the Bears, Lions, Vikings, etc.

Unless we are going back to the 1960's? But the last few years rule changes favor the passing game more all the time.

Wish all you want. As long as this team has AR, this is going to be a pass oriented Offense. And that's good. Because I personally like winning games.

Remember the Playoff game against the Vikings last year? 24-3 at the half. MVP Peterson was on the other sideline. Were you worried at all about a comeback? I wasn't. Because a run oriented power game is not designed for big comebacks. That game was over. But if that was a Manning, Rodgers, Brady, or Brees on the other side, there would have been concern.

The Packers are one of 3 teams to be in the playoffs the last 4 years straight. Why would you want to radically change the one thing that has worked well?

Did they pass that idiotic rule about the runner not leading with the crown of his helmet? Because if they did, that's just gonna encourage MORE AND MORE PASSING.

I'd like Aaron to "take what the defense gives him" more too.

I would also like more beef on our DL. We need to be able to stuff the run. Those are the biggies. Beyond that, I want another dominant OLB and maybe the safeties to emerge as elite players.

I would like to see the offensive line become more physical at the point of attack to all the playbook to become more complete.. I don't want a run based attack, but I want an efficient and viable running threat element to the offense. One in which it can be relied upon consistently to be called upon in all game situations to make the offense a more efficiently balanced attack.

3rd and 1.. we have the utmost confidence they can line up and kick the shat out of the opposition to gain that one yard. Build a lead.. have the confidence in the offense to play ball and control offense to close out games. Defense getting pummeled, allow the offense to flip the time of possession game in our favor and minimize the threat against the defense.

Basically the same premise I wish for yearly.

You realize we have an elite passer and only 2 road graders for offensive lineman, right? I don't disagree with you, but we are nowhere near having the proper personnel for this kind of radical change.

I would like to see better play calling 3rd down on both sides of the ball. Blitz more on defense, and use a heavy package on 3rd and short and pick up the first down. Every time I see a 20+ yard pass on 3rd down, I want strangle McCarthy and Rodgers simultaneously - unless of course they hit it. One of those you stupid son of / good play type of moments. The odds aren't real good going long on third down.

I'd like to see our defense lead the league in red zone defense - a very critical part of the equation to consistently winning.
