If you are a Packers fan, you already know that this season is basically Super Bowl or bust. Ted Thompson even changed his ways, looking to free agents for some immediate help. The team enters the year as one of the favorites to reach New Orleans, while last season’s postseason disappointment is still fresh in everyone’s memory. While the Packers on paper look as good as anyone, there are still some concerns. Here’s a look at the three positions that cause the most concern for the Packers in 2012.
A team with Aaron Rodgers as their quarterback is not going to run the ball that often, but they still need to be able to do it on occasion. The signing of Cedric Benson should help, but as he gets up there in age his production will not likely be what it used to be. When it comes to other running back options, there just really is not much there. Alex Green, James Starks and Brandon Saine have all been restricted by injuries this preseason, but they also have just not been very impressive when on the field. The running game has to be at least a threat, or defenses will be able to focus on the pass more than ever.
