Now, the bad news. The Packers are a good football team, and will almost certainly be a playoff team, but fatal flaws from last year – and last January – still exist. The run defense can rupture at the seams in an instant, given the talent deficiencies along the defensive line and at inside linebacker. The offense, while so explosive and efficient at times, can sputter, even for long stretches and especially when the defense needs a counter punch. Almost all teams are dealing with some kind of fatal flaw this time of year, but champions find ways to overcome them, either internally or with outside help. The Packers couldn’t last year. Can they this year? The flaws look the awfully similar.
