Defensive end Ryan Pickett, at 340 pounds, adds heft to the Packers' line, savvy to the locker room and smothering hits to Green Bay's run defense. His return to action in the season finale after sustaining a concussion on Dec. 11 (he took a knee to the head during the Packers' 46--16 win over Oakland) gives a lift to a defense that has struggled to bring down running backs. "When you give up a big play, somebody might [have missed] a tackle or [blown] a coverage," Pickett says. "We're normally a good tackling team. We know how to do it. And when we fix it, it's going to be great."
