Green Bay Packers Biggest Weakness Come Playoff Time

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers have had quite an impressive season but one thing that could come back to haunt them is their inability to perform against top defenses.

The Detroit Lions and Seattle Seahawks, who rank as the top two defenses in the league, gave the Packers two early losses which prompted quarterback Aaron Rodgers to tell the fans to just R-E-L-A-X. Struggles continued with close victories over the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots who rank in the top 15 of NFL defenses.

The Packers have had an impressive season none the less, putting up huge numbers against all other opponents. This weekend Green Bay was upset by the Buffalo Bills who rank as one of the top 10 defenses in the NFL. Aaron Rodgers struggled throwing the most incompletions he's had in a game all year long. It may not be time for the Packers to relax with the team's inability to perform against the top defenses in the league.

Mike McCarthy Likely Sticking with Dom Capers as Green Bay Packers’ Defensive Coordinator

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy held his end of the season press conference on Wednesday and made it unofficially clear to reporters that the Packers wouldn't make any significant changes in the coaching staff before next season, specifically with Defensive Coordinator Dom Capers.

"Dom Capers is an outstanding football coach," McCarthy said. "When I go through this process (of evaluation), there's things you really like about your program. I think Dom Capers is an outstanding football coach and I'm glad he's on our staff."

Capers, who has been criticized often throughout the entire 2013 season after the Packers repeated lack of success on the defensive side of the football, would be entering his sixth year as Green Bay's defensive coordinator if McCarthy officially decides to keep him on staff in 2014.

In 2013, Green Bay's defense allowed 372.3 yards per game (25th in NFL), 26.8 points per game (t-24th) while forcing 22 turnovers (t-21st). In Capers' defense (no pun intended), the defense sustained numerous injuries during the season to key players such as safety Morgan Burnett (missed 3 games), linebackers Clay Matthews (5 games), Nick Perry (5 games), and Brad Jones (4 games) and cornerbacks Sam Shields (2 games) and Casey Hayward (13 games).

Green Bay Packers 101 Special: 2013 NFL Playoff Predictions

January 3rd, 2014 at 4:11 PM
By Sean Tehan

Last season, NFL fans were shocked to see the Baltimore Ravens, in linebacker Ray Lewis' last hurrah, win Super Bowl XLVII over the San Francisco 49ers behind the play of quarterback Joe Flacco.

Flacco had one of the greatest individual postseason runs in NFL history, throwing 11 touchdown passes and zero interceptions in four games. On his way to Super Bowl MVP honors, Flacco outdueled future Hall of Fame quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Tom Brady to reach the Super Bowl, as the Ravens proved once again last season that any team can win it all.

NFL fans though won't see a repeat performance by Flacco and the Ravens, as Baltimore failed to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2007. In 2014, young quarterbacks Nick Foles and Cam Newton will make their postseason debuts for the Philadelphia Eagles and Carolina Panthers, respectively.

Returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2011, 2010 and 2009 are the New Orleans Saints, Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers, respectively, as new coaches at the helm of each of these teams from a season ago have put each squad back on the right track.

Green Bay Packers 101 Special: 2013 NFL Awards

January 3rd, 2014 at 3:35 PM
By Sean Tehan

The 2013 NFL season is officially in the books, Super Bowl XLVIII will soon be quickly approaching and it's time to handout regular season awards in the wake of a new year.

In 2013, NFL fans saw teams like the Houston Texans, Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears lead their respective divisions early on but go on to fail to reach the playoffs.

Fans also saw teams such as the New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs race out to commanding starts, only to wind up starting the postseason on the road instead of at the comforts of their home venues.

Besides the team stories, every NFL season a few players break out of nowhere, such as Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, who compiled an NFL-best 119.2 passer rating while throwing 27 touchdown passes and only two interceptions, leading the Eagles to their first NFC East division title since 2010.

Foles didn't even become the Eagles' regular starting quarterback until Week Five, getting off to a delayed start to the season like Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon.
