    2011 Packers had the deepest weaponry in the passing game we've seen

    Greg Jennings
    Jordy Nelson
    Jermichael Finley
    James Jones
    Donald Driver
    Randall Cobb

    ^^^All of these guys on the same roster. Clean the pocket, spread the defense out with 5 mismatches, and it's impossible to stop. Somebody will always be open, and was.

    It's why Matt Flynn threw 6 TDs in a game. It's why Rodgers won MVP. It's why they went 15-1 winning most games in blowout fashion, DESPITE having a weak defense.

    At its core, this spread WCO scheme is predicated on loading up the receiving weapons around the QB.

    The motto used to be "You can never have enough pass-rushers"

    Now it's "You can never have enough receiving weapons."

    Coming off a SB win in 2010.

    15-1 in 2011.

    Odds were against them repeating.

    This is the NFL, and the playoffs are like March Madness. One bad day and you're knocked out.

    Well it got stopped in the first round for them when they got their drawers beat off by the giants on their home field. The team that won the SB in 2010 and went 15-1 in 2011 with all those WRs got shut down all day by the gmen and if it were not for some horrid calls by the refs they would of been embarrassed even more then they already were when the final second ticked off
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    5-NE
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

    Oh right. Your the one that believes the giants needed a game breaking WR that they didnt have last year and that is why they only scored less then 20ppg. Hey I am all for stacking the O with a ton of weapons to throw to. But if your Line does not give the QB enough time it really wont matter much. And in this case we have a very immobile QB on the back end of his career.

    The FO knows what type of QB he is and does his best when well protected. Yet they have done little to nothing the last two offeasons to put the best people in front of him possible to give him the best chance to retire with another ring. Now as I said in the other Thread I do agree that they have the right combo of weapons to make their scheme work. Lets hope they can add another body or two to help give eli another second or two to find them

    Not really the best lesson to takeaway seeing how this team dropped 6 passes against you in the playoffs, and didn't have a pass rush to compete.

    Atlanta had 1 real weapon in the passing game (Julio Jones). ONE. Sanu and Gabriel are complementary pieces that benefit from the attention Julio draws. On their own, Sanu and Gabriel are not threats.


    Read the OP. Packers had up to 5 mismatches at once in the passing game.


    And using an example of a team holding a 28-3 lead over Belichick/Brady, is not really a point in your favor. Atlanta's terrible clock management / decision-making took over that game.
