    A bit harsh guys.... I actually felt the 2014 and 2015 defense were alright. Obviously they weren't elite but they were competent enough to give a chance at a superbowl run. The 2014 Packers were very close to a complete team ( minus special teams) that year since that 2010 squad. Unfortunately that NFC championship game overshadowed everything....Then as Jack mentioned had the offense been not such a mess in 2015 that team could've done some damage in the playoff. Instead we got offense unable to sustain drives, hail marys and defense gassing and shitting the bed in OT again.

    That being said, 2016 defense was a shit show, absolutely garbage and unacceptable. The front seven was alright, interior being the strongest its been in awhile but the pass rush was so inconsistent. The safeties were quite good but the CB group was a disaster. I get it they were banged up, so hopefully they can stay healthy in 2017. Randall needs to stop playing so fucking soft, that shit was infuriatingly to watch happen play after play, game after game. Maybe it was his injury so he wasn't comfortable playing closer to the LOS but hes got to toughen up and trust himself again. Gunter did what he had to with what he was thrust into but he's a liability and needs safety help. I don't want him shadowing the 1 and 2 WR this season at all like he had to last year. He's fine as a 3 or 4 CB nothing more. Rollins injuries killed his growth but like Randall has to eventually play better. I like the Davon House signing. He should be able to play to his strength (press man) unlike in Jacksonville so if he could get close to that 2015 level of play, I'll take it.

    TT absolutely must address Edge rusher and CB in this years draft. Guard and RB as well but in the latter rounds.

    We're just packers fans (very emotional and judgmental) you know what gets me is the patriots in more than less the time of exsistence have more lombardis than the pack And they recognize brady is done soon and they go "all in" they did it in 16 years

    If Clay is inside, does that mean Elliot is the starting OLB?

    That was a particularly bad defensive showing even by recent Packer standards.
