Off Season Needs

My first ever Fan Post!

Just an opinion - mine. Agree or dis-agree, that'd be your opinion.

Players:
Safety. We need a top safety from the draft. Morgan Burnett had an off year, but will probably have a better one next year IF he has a GOOD safety playing along side him.

OLB. We need a TRUE LEFT OLB. Not a ROLB switched. Not a small DE switched. But a TRUE LOLB that is used to playing from that side.

MLB. We need a total upgrade there. Jamari Lattimore can be one, but we need someone who is more than "reliable". We need play makers at that position.

TE. Jermichael Finley should be done, as far as the Packers go. Andrew Quarless did good when Flynn was in, but what happened while Rodgers was QB?

Coaching:
We need an attitude change on "D". More aggressive. Use the base more. Rush the passer and play the run on the way to the QB, not a play the run then play the pass in certain situations. Go after the QB *all* the time. Does this call for a new D-Cord? I dunno. Dom Capers seems capable of being aggressive. He just needs to do it. Maybe he's been hampered by the types of players he has had. The "D" needs an aggressive mean streak.

Offense seems to have found a great running game, but the predictability in play-calls needs to change. Way more play-action pass is needed.

Scouting/GM level:
Time do actually play more in the F.A. market. Not saying to go after "big" names, but definitely get someone. We found Charles Woodson there, we found Ryan Pickett there. Sign our own F.A.'s, but don't go overboard on contract sizes. Sam Shields should be pushed for, BJ Raji at a lower rate, etc. If a player didn't live up to expectations, see about pay-cuts with incentives (see Mason Crosby, PK).
