Packers: Class Of The NFL?

Aaron Rodgers

Sure, the Green Bay Packers are the best team in the NFL right now… probably by a mile. No one else is undefeated. No one else has an offense like the Packers. In fact, we can’t remember the last time we’ve seen an offense as dominant as the one Green Bay puts on the field.

Are the Packers unbeatable? No way in hell. Their defense is suspect at best. They win because they have the best player in football guiding the ship. They win despite the buffoonery of their head coach, who insists upon passing on 3rd and 2 and then, when he decides to go for it on fourth down, passing again instead of just handing the ball to James Starks, who always falls forward.

Yes, the Green Bay Packers are the best team in the league. Yes, Aaron Rodgers is the best player in the league. Yes, this offense may be historically good. That doesn’t mean all the hype adds up.

Take, for instance, this statement from PFT’s Michael David Smith.

The Packers showed once again on Sunday that they’re the head of the class in the NFL, jumping ahead of the Chargers early and holding on late to win 45-38.

We can’t argue with anything that was stated.

There are holes on this team, though. That’s not to take anything away from the team’s 8-0 start or Rodgers’ otherworldly performance thus far, but the Packers will be exposed as an imperfect team eventually and all the “experts” and their dumbass opinions will fall by the wayside.

If the team doesn’t improve, especially on defense, that’s only a matter of time.

    That’s rough on McCarthy, look at the two drives to end the Chargers game. All runs, couldn’t get the first. You can’t win em all.

    Whoa whoa whoa. I really can’t believe I have to start defending MM after an 8-0 start. Plus, what does everyone say about the Packers- best offense in the league. Who calls the plays/directs the offense? MM.

    I defended MM last year when the team was in the middle of a 3 game losing streak. While I understood the frustration with him, I definitely disagreed. But this is ridiculous. MM is doing a great job as head coach and as play caller. He proved last year that he is a worth coach and MOST IMPORTANTLY: He and ARodg have a GREAT relationship. They trust each other. This is sooo important!

    In Mike McCarthy we (or at least I) trust.

    Is this a New England blog’, we are on a 14 game winning streak, it must be nice forall the armchair quarterbacks to find faults in a team that is 8_0 and ran the table in the postseasonlast year. 90% of the critics never have put pads on or let alone have participated on an undefeated sports team to know the pressure. I would say the stress level is high enough in the locker room with out the media waiting for the grim reaper loss so they can have the I told you so story. So shut your sewers and enjoy the ride while it last. Be a fan not a critic

    The Bears game was one of those firing on all four cylinders games. Next Monday night would be a nice time to see one of those games. I hate the fucking Vikings with a passion and would like nothing more than to see them lose in epic fashion. Go Pack!

    Last year after the Packers lost to Detroit I thought they had a long way to go to be a great team. Then they won the superbowl and are still undefeated. Lets chill the fuck out and enjoy this. No they are not perfect.

      Who knows how this will all play out, but I gotta tell ya, I laugh my ass off every time I see your user name.

    Hey tell ya what. Bitching about poor defensive play with this team is like bitching about your gas mileage on your Ferrari.
    Enjoy the fucking ride okay?

    I have to agree with all the sentiments here. I don’t know if Monty has taken his paranoia to hysteria levels or if he is just trying to yank our chains, but this is a really pointless article.

    All the experts are merely saying what this article already concedes: that the Packers are the best team in the league. There are few media personalities who have picked the Packers to go undefeated. Most believe the Packers will lose at some point, and the main reason being cited is the defense. In fact, the Packers are hardly ever mentioned without the caveat of their porous defense being brought up.

    So, how are the Packers being hyped any more than what their plain record states?

    The Packers haven’t lost a game since December of 2010. It is now the second week of November 2011. Think on that and be dismayed.

    “Hey tell ya what. Bitching about poor defensive play with this team is like bitching about your gas mileage on your Ferrari.

    Very funny. Couldn’t agree more. Defense will get it together. Probably once Neal gets back.

    It’s fun to play Monday morning QB, ain’t it? Just remember, this buffoon won us a Superbowl last year as a wild card team.
