Aaron Rodgers wants to power the Packers to another Super Bowl title. Here are five bold predictions about Green Bay’s 2021 season.
The Packers don’t have a perfect roster at the moment, but they can reach that status with a solid draft later this month. That means expectations are understandably high in Green Bay. It’s Super Bowl or bust for Aaron Rodgers and his teammates in 2021.
That puts a particularly high amount of pressure on Rodgers’ supporting cast. Devante Adams is a superstar wideout that makes his quarterback look stellar on a regular basis, but he desperately needs more help in the receiving corps to elevate the team’s aerial attack.
It’s clear that head coach Matt LaFleur wants to elevate the team’s run game to take pressure off of Rodgers and his receivers. That’s why the team surprised NFL observers by bringing Aaron Jones back with a significant free agent deal. He and A.J. Dillon will get more carries than ever before during this regular season.
The defense has some obvious flaws, but it’s got a pass rush capable of shutting down opposing offenses. If LaFleur and his coaching staff can fix the secondary, they could have a top-10 unit on their hands. That would drastically improve the Packers’ chances of capturing another Lombardi Trophy this season.
Without further delay, jump right in for five bold predictions about how the Packers will perform in 2021.
5. The Packers will finally draft a No. 2 wide receiver
Packers fans were furious when their front office failed to pluck a talented wideout out of last year’s historically talented draft class. That cost Green Bay dearly in 2020. Fortunately, the franchise has an opportunity to correct that error in the 2021 Draft.
The Packers might not draft a pass catcher in Round 1, but they won’t wait past Round 2 to nab some help for Adams and Rodgers. Help is one the way for Green Bay’s biggest stars.
