Green Bay Packers
It seems that this
season the Green Bay Packers will depend on the defense, the
betting odds reflect team's weaknesses.
was no playoff last NFL season and even though Brett Favre gave
the Green Bay Packers four straight wins at the end of the
season, 8-8 was not enough. Not much work was done offensively
during the offseason, but the Packers lost RB Ahman Green, TE
David Martin and FB William Henderson. The rookie from Nebraska
Brandon Jackson is lacking the experience and many experts agree
that receiver Greg Jennings lacks the skills and confidence to
be a reliable threat. Brett Favre and WR Donald Driver work
great together and the duo will be the main offensive weapon of
the Green Bay Packers for yet another football season.
The defense is good to go for the
regular season, Al Harris and Charles Woodson delivering a scary
combination and remain two of the best in the league. The
Packers added strength with Nick Collins and former Giant Frank
Walker. The Green Bay Packers fans are confident that the team
will see playoff football this year. The Green Bay Packers
scored 38-points in the first-half, as they soared past the
Seattle Seahawks 48-10 in preseason play at Lambeau Field.
Backup QB Aaron Rodgers threw two TD passes, while completing
10-of-16 for 97 yards for the Packers. James Jones caught four
passes, and finished with two touchdowns.
If the Packers continue to win and show a
real improvement over the last season, bettors will be happy.
