The Packers made very little changes this year so they should fall right in where they were last year.  The only reason they only had 8 wins last year though was because Aaron Rodgers was out for a few games with a broken collarbone.  If he can stay healthy and RB Eddie Lacy continues to progress then the Packers will be a huge force to be reckoned with.  Defensively, they picked up Julius Peppers who may be past his prime, but he could still contribute to their defensive line.  S Ha Ha Clinton Dix will be a huge addition in the future to their secondary so they will have a solid defense for years to come.  The Packers have the misfortunate of playing in a tough NFC North, but in the whole context of the NFC they are one of the top teams.  Along with the Saints, the Packers will go deep into the playoffs and will make a run at the Super Bowl.
