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.
