ENEMY lines WHAT A RIVAL COACH SAYS

"THIS OFFENSE is so good I get the sense that Aaron Rodgers says to himself, I want to get this guy a touchdown, and gets him the ball. I mean how else do you explain B.J. Raji and Tom Crabtree scoring touchdowns?

What happened to the Packers and Rodgers in the playoffs is that they had gone three weeks since their last 'real' game and were out of rhythm. This offense is dependent on being in rhythm.

Rodgers will have another fantastic season, but one as good as last year? That would be hard for anyone to match.

Jordy Nelson had the more productive 2011, but Greg Jennings is still the receiver who concerns us the most. Nelson's numbers were partly a result of defenses being concerned with Jennings. Both will put up great stats again this year.

James Jones just won't go away. The team was ready to move on without him last year, but he re-signed and ended up being a contributor. I think this is the year, though, that he finally takes a step back. Randall Cobb is ready to overtake Jones. Cobb's playmaking ability is so much better.... Donald Driver can dance, but his days as a productive receiver are over.

Jermichael Finley is an enigma to me. He's not as productive as his athletic ability suggests he should be.

With a QB like Rodgers, why even try to run the ball? If the Packers had someone better than James Starks, maybe they would. I'm not a fan."
