The NFC North, where they play football the way it was meant to be played. In the cold. In the elements. And sometimes in the 72 degree comfort of an indoor arena.
Green Bay Packers
|12-4||Poor Aaron Rodgers lost his favorite WR Jordy Nelson to what looks like a season ending knee injury. Poor Super Bowl champion Aaron Rodgers. Poor good looking Aaron Rodgers. Poor perfect passing Aaron Rodgers. Poor dating Olivia Munn Aaron Rodgers. You quit your whining, Aaron Rodgers.|
|Detroit Lions||10-6||The Lions actually made the playoffs last season behind a tenacious defense and head coach Jim Caldwell reigning in the erratic play of QB Matt Stafford. Can Stafford take them to the playoffs in back to back seasons? Of course Stafford was sacked 45 times last season, and the Lions have no running game to speak of, so maybe I should be asking if Dan Orlovsky can take them to the playoffs in back to back seasons.|
|Minnesota Vikings||8-8||The Vikings have high hopes this year after a solid rookie season from QB Teddy Bridgewater and the return of RB Adrian Peterson. Then they acquired WR Mike Wallace which should give them a vertical threat in the passing game. Of course Wallace also gives them the threat of locker room chemistry blowing up like a landmine.|
|Chicago Bears||5-11||John Fox has gone from Tim Tebow to Peyton Manning and now he goes to Jay Cutler. First the good news: Cutler has a much stronger arm than Manning. And now the bad: literally every other single thing.|
