Yeah, it's not really that Ted Thompson hasn't done things to address areas of need. Unfortunately, injuries hurt the Packers more than anything. Sure, there could be talent upgrades in places, but that's always going to be the case, especially when managing a salary cap. Not every position is going to be deep. There's always going to be a thin spot, or spots. It's just the way it is with super stars such as Aaron Rodgers and CM3 coming up for new contracts. Fortunately, the Packers have a ton of young developing players that will hopefully improve and be key contributors. I still think Nick Perry will be a force in the pass rushing department, and don't really care if he's not that great in coverage. The Packers need pass rush help more than anything. If they can get one more consistent defensive linemen that provides a nice pass rush and Nick Perry stays healthy, the Packers defense will be very good. That's not a bad situation to be in. Moreover, if Bulaga, Sherrod, Newhouse, Lang, Barclay, EDS, and a couple players added in the 2013 draft are healthy, the Packers could have a good to very good offensive line, in time.

All the pieces are still there for the Packers, they just haven't came together in the past couple of seasons. Beyond some of the coaches, I'm comfortable with the talent on this team so long as they have another strong off season. I would like to see a new offensive line coach and a new defensive coordinator. However, I understand why Dom Capers likely stays this season, and I expect his defense to be pushing for a top 10 spot in points allowed in the regular season, slightly better than in 2012. The playoffs make me nervous, but the Packers defense may surprise some people next season. There's no reason to overreact about this team. It just needs a few more pieces and some luck, and they will have every opportunity to be champions again.
