The Packers defense has been in disarray since the beginning of the season and not much has been corrected. The expert media types will have you believe all is well, but for the most part, they don't watch the games.They merely watch highlights, copy from one another and give it a flair of their own. The people who actually watch the games can see a potential season long trend developing that basically puts the Packers in the same category of all the other playoff contenders. They all have one glaring weakness. The Packers' is defense.
We all know that Aaron Rodgers and the offense are capable of huge plays and scoring many points in every game this season. We also know the Packers defense has that capability in reverse. For their 1st 4.5 games this year, the defense was a sieve to say the least. Every team moved the ball at will and points were scored. It wasn't until an adjustment was made halfway through the Atlanta game that the Packers' defense resembled anything close to the 2010 squad. It is also why the performance by the defense in the latest game was more than disappointing. Although they only scored 3 points, The Rams again moved the ball at will gaining over 400 yards, but committed stupid penalties to take away chances at points. This is somehow becoming another trend by the opposition that the Packers can not afford to rely on in future games. When the Packers play a better, less mistake-prone team, the defense may still struggle, but this time the offense may not be able to bail them out.
