“Gentlemen, we are going to relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full well we will not catch it, because nothing is perfect. But we are going to relentlessly chase it, because in the process we will catch excellence.” — Vince Lombardi
I wouldn’t be at all surprised if these words, or a variation of it, were said in each NFL locker room every season. The quote in itself is nearly perfect, as there has only been one “perfect” team record-wise in the Super Bowl era.
Which brings me to my overall point. While the Packers accomplished the goal that every team sets out to at the beginning of the season, they weren’t a perfect team by any means. The 2010 Packers lost six games along the way, overcoming several deficiencies in the process. Every Packer fan from the Pacific to the Atlantic (and beyond, for our international readers) expects the Packers to repeat next season, but that might not be possible unless the Packers continue to chase perfection.
Listed below are several areas where the Packers can continue to improve for next season, and the ways in which they can do it.
