Are the Pack-men Good Enough?

These days Aaron Rodgers’ name is being thrown around as being one of the top 5 quarterbacks in the game right now. I have to say, from last year’s performance, that assessment isn’t too far-fetched. His targets aren’t too shabby either, as both Greg Jennings and Donald Driver each had over 1,000 yards last year. As much as it pains me to say it, the Packers have a solid group put together prime to make a run in the playoffs.

Many people may point out their defensive deficiencies, but they were in the top 10 in total yards allowed and points allowed. It’s just that in the games where the Packers lose, their defense is the main culprit. With the departure of lane clogging defensive end Aaron Kampman, other guys will have to step up.

The Packers secondary is probably the best in the league. Charles Woodson is an absolute ball hawk who has found a niche in the so-called twilight of his career. Atari Bigby, Al Harris, Tramon Williams, and Nick Collins are play great team defense and compliment each other well.

The Packers season will be based on their defense’s ability to close out the games that need to be closed out. Their offense is primed and ready to go. I see the Packers edging out the Vikings this year for the NFC North crown with a 13-3 record. And I’m a Vikings fan, so there you go, you cheeseheads!

Harris says he’ll return this season

Packers cornerback Al Harris said Wednesday he will be back on the field with Green Bay this year after major knee injury abruptly ended last season.

In his first comments in the Packers locker room since the injury, Harris said he never thought about calling it quits.

“There’s no doubt in my mind. If there were, then I wouldn’t be here, standing here now,” the 13-year veteran said after the second of four public organized team activities this offseason.

Harris tore a ligament in his left knee on Nov. 22 against the 49ers while defending San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree. He needed season-ending surgery and there had been questions whether the veteran would return.

Harris said it was tough to watch Green Bay lose to the Arizona Cardinals in the first round of the playoffs in January.

“That was hard, the bits and pieces that I did watch,” he said. “It’s still hard to watch, even watching practice. But that’s a part of it, and that fuels you, to watch the guys go out there and work, to watch your friends play cohesive as a group.
