Green Bay Packers 2009 NFL Projection:
Aaron Rodgers lit up the scoreboard in his inaugural season as starting quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. And although Ryan Grant struggled to find the end zone, Green Bay scored the most points in the NFC North. However, they finished four games below .500 at (6-10) as the Packers' defense failed to live up to their end of the bargain. Green Bay was simply too easy to run against in 2008.

Enter wholesale defensive changes in 2009 as Dom Capers takes over as defensive coordinator. Capers has installed the 3-4, chock full of different looks and blitzes, welcome changes for Cheeseheads in '09.

A key component to their new scheme is DT/NT B.J. Raji, drafted by the Packers in the first round out of Boston College. With the size to plug holes upfront, he can help open the door for linebackers to blitz more often.

DE Cullen Jenkins has taken well to the new style. Although the transition is tougher on former ends Aaron Kampman and Jeremy Thompson now having to cover receivers in underneath routes in an outside linebacker role.

Outside linebacker Clay Matthews of USC, also drafted in the first round is a natural fit for the Packers' new defense. But hamstring woes are likely to keep him out of the starting lineup in the early going.

Of course Green Bay has a phenomenal starting secondary led by cornerbacks Charles Woodson and Al Harris, and free safety Nick Collins. But injuries in this department would be devastating as they lack adequate backups.

Getting back to the offense, Green Bay has a solid, deep group of receivers in Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, James Jones, Jordy Nelson, and Ruvell Martin... Not to mention tight ends Donald Lee and the ever so promising Jermichael Finley... All I can say is, "who are you going to cover?"

As long as the Packers' offensive line stays healthy (led by Clifton who had multiple surgeries in the offseason), and Rodgers stays healthy, there's not much stopping this offense-- especially with Ryan Grant looking back to his old form.

Schedule Analysis:
While the NFC is stocked with competitive teams on paper, Green Bay along with division rivals Chicago and Minnesota draw the softest schedules in the conference. Light games on paper for Green Bay include;

Record Projection:
Green Bay fields a potent offense. And their defense promises to perform better year over year. With a light schedule in comparison to other NFC contenders, all Green Bay needs to do to make the playoffs is to take care of business against their lesser opponents-- and to win a few games against comparable teams. Overall we project a record of (11-5) for the 2009 Green Bay Packers.
