Jeff Castner on the Packers

Posted: July 11, 2014 in Career, Education, Sports, Sports Fan

Jeff Castner is very excited that NFL football is in the air. Here is an early look ahead at the Green Bay Packers and the upcoming NFL season. After going through a couple very tough seasons of early round playoff eliminations, the Packers have the talent and experience to get back on top in the NFC.

Jeff Castner lists a couple key factors to a successful Packer season. The number one obvious goal is to stay healthy and have your best players available week in and week out. Rodgers injury last season was a major blow. Without Rodgers the Packer offense struggled to score points and the passing game was not much of a factor. The one bright spot was the emergence of rookie running back Eddie Lacy. His toughness and running ability will give the Packers a star in the back field for the next several years. Look for Rodgers, Nelson and Cobb to put up big numbers this season. The offense will be hungry to get back on top after a season full of injuries that limited their success.

Jeff Castner believes the most important key to a successful season will once again rest on the shoulders of the Defense. Last season the injuries to Clay Matthews, combined with a very young secondary allowed teams to march up and down the field on the Packers. There was little to no pressure put on opposing quarterbacks with Matthews on the bench. Hello Julius Peppers! The combination of Matthews and Peppers will give the Packers one of the best rushing combinations in football. They will create havoc for opposing quarterbacks that will also allow the secondary to play much more aggressive on opposing receivers. Look for the Defense to be aggressive and much improved.

Jeff Castner looks forward to a very successful season for the Green Bay Packers. Can they finally get by the 49ers and Seattle and make another trip to the Super Bowl? Go Pack!
