The Nike logo has become iconic over the years.  It symbolizes strength, the will to win, and the best performing gear out there.  Anyone who has ever played sports at one time or another had a pair of Nikes that they just felt they could shred the competition with.  But as new companies have arisen, Nike has had some fierce competition in every division of the company from football to soccer to basketball.  NBA star Kevin Durant was offered roughly $275M by Under Armour to wear their shoes and Durant seriously considered it.  Durant eventually decided to stay with Nike but with one of the top athletes almost leaving for a competitor, is Nike still the top dog when it comes to apparel?

NFL Rankings: #4 Green Bay Packers

Key Additions: DE Julius Peppers, S Ha Ha Clinton Dix, WR Davante Adams

Key Losses: WR James Jones, DE C.J. Wilson, S M.D. Jennings

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.
