Green Bay Packers: Three Questions Heading into the 2018 Season
For the Green Bay Packers, 2017 was a down year. That happens to a good team now and then. Especially when you lose one of the greatest QBs in the game right now. With the return of Aaron Rodgers, 2018 expects to be a much better season. There are some questions, however. Here we look at a few of those questions facing the Packers heading into the 2018 NFL Season.
Did the Packers get better on defense?
The Packers acquired Muhammad Wilkerson to help bolster a D-Line that was lackluster in 2017. Additionally, the Pack expects the selections of Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson to improve their secondary. Alexander expects to be the nickel corner. Last season the Pack took Kevin King in the second round. All of these moves on the back-end of that defense should enable them to improve. The recent loss of Jake Ryan could prove costly.
Will the Green Bay Packers finally have a running game?
The Packers still have Ty Montgomery listed as their number one back. While he is more of a threat as a WR, the Pack have found much success with him in the backfield. Last year’s fifth-round choice Aaron Jones should see increased action. Especially after his two-game suspension is over.
Who will Replace Jordy Nelson?
Many thought Nelson was to be a life-long member of the Green Bay Packers. However, after reaching the long-term deal with Devante Adams that thought started to wane. After missing 2015 with a knee injury, it was hard to think that the Green Bay Packers would make a long-term commitment as well. Now they look to Geronimo Allison or DeAngelo Yancey to fill the void. They could quite possibly use their plethora of TEs to fill that gap as well.
The Green Bay Packers should return to the top of the NFC North. If I had to put my money on a QB in that division, it would be Aaron Rodgers. Besides, he is playing with a chip on his shoulder.
