You’ve probably seen these lists before, but we have a little different perspective than everyone else. The Green Bay Packers have some work to do this offseason.
If they want to fill all of these needs, general manager Ted Thompson is going to have to venture outside of his comfort zone and participate in the NFL offseason beyond the draft.
We’re not going to suggest that’s a likely scenario, but it’s what will need to be done if the Packers are going to shore up all of these positions.
The draft simply isn’t going to net an impact player at each of these positions, even if the Packers hit on all of their choices. And no one does that.
At some of these positions, there just aren’t many potential impact players available in the draft. So the Packers will have a choice.
Look to other methods of player acquisition and make a real, legitimate, day one run at the Super Bowl or stick to the status quo and hope for the best. The latter could very well result in another wasted year of Aaron Rodgers’ career.
Before we get on with it, don’t be surprised when you don’t see receiver on this list. Despite the Packers’ failings in that department in 2015, they really don’t have room for another receiver, unless they cut Davante Adams.
You and I both know that’s a pipe dream after just two seasons.
I’ll tell you what the Slackers REALLY need. They need to get rid of pretty boy Aaron Rodgers. He has already started to turn into Mr. Hollywood with his B rated girlfriend Olivia Munn. They also need to get rid of that blob of lard on the sideline, aka Mike McCarthy. Only he can suck at utilizing Pro-Bowl caliber players at the rate that he does.
You also need to get somebody like Megatron. Jordy is alright, but outside of him your WR’s are TRASH. Also, Eddie Lacy is just fat. Plain and simple, the man tweeted out a few days ago a recipe for tacos. Looks like he makes regular nightly runs to 7/11 (if they have those in the cow pasture that is GB) for some hot dogs and Big Gulps.
While we are at it you should probably take the Slackers out of the abyss that is Wisconsin. Do you even know what a World Series is? How about a Stanley Cup? What about an NBA Championship? The sports in Wisonsin are garbage. Not to mention all of the fans look like beached seals.
Lord help the people in Wisconsin.
CHOKE PACK CHOKE!
Speaking of sports that actually matter, do you even know what a Super Bowl is?
Sorry Dave, 7/11’s only exist in the ghetto. We have something much better called Kwik Trip. I would recommend you try it out once the police find out who stole your car.
Because the Lions won how many Super Bowls with Sanders, Megatron, and Suh? 0 that’s right 0.
LMFAO at bringing other sports up in a football argument, you wreak of desperation. FYI the only team in your dumpster fire of a city worth a shit is the Red Wings: The Piston, Tigers, and Lions combined have 4 fewer Championship titles than the Packers do by themselves.
Pistons have more titles than the Bucks, Tigers have more titles than the Brewers. You also don’t have a pro hockey team. You are beneath Michigan in all other major pro sports outside of football. Congrats. No need to argue with you people anymore.
CHOKE PACK CHOKE!
People forgets so easily that the packers o line was great in 2014. That was with Bakhtiari, Lang, Sutton, Linsely and Bulaga. Just wait until 2016 comes and you guys will jump right back on the bandwagon. And they need a RB ? Wtf, did you guys forget what lacy did in 2013 and 2014 ? They need a MLB and a TE, and that’s about it ….the offense just didn’t play up to their potential in 2015.
John, the Pack do need O lineman, and I would suggest at least two. The offensive line needs two quality backups that can play tackle. The team cannot depend on Walker or Barclay to play the tackle positions. Maybe those two guys are on the practice squad in Roth and V, only the coaches know. Even if those two are capable this team could lose four O lineman to free agency after this year. Lang, Sitton, Tretter and Bahk.
The team needs better quality backups at a minimum for 2016 and to prepare those backups for potential starting positions in the O line after this season.
We need a DT that is better than Raji and an ILB that kicks ass in Free Agency. A free agent TE would be nice but I’d rather draft Henry or make a trade for good one.
They need to fix the middle of their field : NT, ILB and TE
Draft NT & ILB in rounds 1 & 2 and fix TE in free agency with a guy that the new TE coach wants to coach.
Also a good plan.
Cheese, you just say football is the only sport that matters because all other sports in Wisconsin are terrible. Wisconsin is a one trick pony. If the Packers don’t win a SB, all sports fans in your cow pasture state have to wait for NEXT football season because your baseball and basketball teams blow and you don’t even have a hockey team.
I say it’s the only sport that matters because WE ARE ON A FOOTBALL WEBSITE. When was the last time the Pistons and the Tigers were even relevant?? If the Red wings don’t win the Stanley Cup they are out of luck as well since all three of the remaining teams in Detroit have only won a single title in the past 25 years combined. Really sounds like something to look forward to. What was that about being a one trick pony? And with the way the Lions play you might as well say you don’t even have a football team either.
Right, because if the Red Wings hadn’t won four Stanley Cups since 1994 and hadn’t played in an additional two more Stanley Cups then Detroit would be nothing. Do you hear yourself? The Red Wing’s have had WAY more success than the Packers have since 1994.
How have the Brewers been? They have been to one World series since they became a team in 1969. They have won only two division championships in their history. TWO! Still searching for a World Series, I see. The Detroit Tigers have played in two World Series since 2000 and have won four in their history. Been to 11 in total. Not to mention four division titles in a row from 2011-2014.
Well, the Bucks must be good, right? Wrong. They have played in two NBA championships since they were created in 1968. They only won one championship with arguably a top five player ever, Oscar Robertson. Only one division title since 2000 as well. Nice. The Pistons have won 3 championships, including one in 2004. Went to another NBA championship the next year in 2005. How about 6 division titles since 2000.
Did I also forget mention that Wisconsin doesn’t even have a professional hockey team? What a joke. When it comes to more than just one sport, Michigan beats Wisconsin any day of the week. We don’t just live off of one team.
Wow, the Tigers have lost two world series in the past 16 years and haven’t won one in over 30. Mad props bro. Way to start bragging about how many division titles your baseball and basketball teams have won on a football site. How many division titles do the Lions have?? I noticed you haven’t mentioned them at all. How many playoff games have they won in the past 50 years? One, that’s the worst in the league even against shitty expansion teams like the Jaguars and Texans who have only been around for a short time.
Congratulations, Detroit has a successful hockey team. The thing is, is that no one here cares. Just like no one cares that Wisconsin doesn’t have a hockey team. Bragging about other sports teams successes because your football team sucks is pretty pathetic, and once again, no one cares. It would be like having a gay dude brag to a group of straight guys about how many dicks he’s sucked. It’s cool that you’re proud of all the titles your city has for sucking dick, but we’re gonna be over here talking about what really matters, pounding some sweet football poontang.
Anyone care to tell me what Monty thinks needs to be fixed? I don’t ever click through his stupid slideshow posts. That way I can mock his ideas the best that I can
By far the best inside linebacker in college could be available to the Pack at 27. The problem is he tore his knee ligaments in a bowl game. Even though many say Jaylon Smith may be taken as early as 11 it is hard to believe a non playoff team would take the risk. Smith was projected to be a top 5 pick prior to the injury. If the top 3 ilbs are gone, along with the top TE, D and O linemen does TT take a chance on Smith if available?
I think our biggest needs are DE, MLB, and Tackle in that Order. We have never been a team that is big on TE’s i’m not sure why the sudden we are? Even when Finley was here did he ever have a 1000 yard season? A Rodgers has never been a TE first quarterback even in college and when Nelson comes back and our WR’s get healthy the air attack will be just fine… I would put RB over TE at this point because of last year’s performance.
