What’s going to be weird watching the Green Bay Packers in 2011? If they don’t make the playoffs. Given recent history, it’s not unusual to see Super Bowl winners take a big step back the next season. Many fail even to make the playoffs.
But Green Bay Packers tickets holders should be pretty confident. If everyone stays healthy the Packers will make the playoffs and be a good bet to win it. The weirdness kicks in when a key player gets hurt. Losing Rodgers would be a disaster. Weirdness in the free agent market could cause the loss of two key players in the offensive line.
A move to get a linebacker that matches well with Clay Mathews could see some strange names drifting through camp. Or would it be weirder to see Green Bay stick with Frank Zombo and Erik Walden?
