Sitting at (4-2) and 3rd place in the division, Green Bay is happy to have been able to stay above .500. The team has struggled in a number of areas but have still managed to pull out victories. Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson have had to carry this team to this point, placing the team in the top 10 in 3rd Down Conversion percentage. The rushing attack has been virtually non-existent with Eddie Lacy who was avg 3.6 yrd/carry and has failed to reach the endzone thru 6 games. A change was made to James Starks just before the Packers victory over San Diego where he went on to Score 2 TD's. Starks seems to fit the system that Green Bay wants to run much better and is more explosive between the tackles and in the screen game. The coaching staff still feel that Lacy will be able to contribute in short yardage situations as well as down the stretch when the weather gets colder and teams are more banged up. Defensively the Packers have been a middle of the road unit, giving up lots of yards but still managing to keep teams out of the endzone. The real meat of Green Bays schedule comes after the bye week as we're set to take on a (4-2) Denver team who will get Peyton Manning back off a foot injury, a Vikings team who has played well to this point and sitting at 2nd in the division, a rematch with the division leading (5-1)Bears, and the (4-2)Cards and (5-1)Raiders who are both playing great football so far this season. With the Bears sitting at (5-1), the Pack have a steep hill to climb and might need a little bit of help to reach first place in the division. 11-5 seems to be a realistic goal for this team coming out of the bye week.
