    "The star of this defensive front now is Mike Daniels, though even he saw his form dip after he signed his contract extension during the season"

    Was this really the case? I thought he was great the whole year.

    Daniels was the only elite player on the Packers defense last season, I don't agree with PFF that his firm dipped in 2015 either.

    The front 7 ranking seems right as the two positions on the team with the most questions DL and Ilb are there. The secondary will grade out high. If the front 7 can move up into the top 15 the defense will be top 10 and in good shape

    Agreed. PFF loves to be edgy.

    I think it's a fair evaluation of the Packers offensive line as the starters are excellent in pass protection and the team hopefully upgraded the backup tackle situation by drafting Spriggs and Murphy.

    And that's why I love it so much. I don't claim to know much about the Packers but I do know that the O-Line wasn't NEARLY as bad as some would have led you to believe.

    WOW, I do not agree with this. If they want to rank GB 8th fine but some of the teams ahead of them, absolutely no. Seattle? Washington? Hell even New England? I mean, there's one key variable with all 3 of those teams and that's a stud TE so how much weight is put on the TE vs. WR?

    I guess Pro Football Focus put a lot of stock into last year's performance. There's no denying the Packers receiving corps struggled in 2015. I expect the unit to end up as one of the league's best this season though.

    Sure, that's fine but the fact that Jordy will be back (and the rest of the group should be healthy), plus adding a field stretching TE I mean putting Seattle and Wash ahead of them is insulting. I honestly forgot NE added Marty B so I don't have as much an issue with them ahead anymore. :confused:

    I agree that Washington's and the Seahawks' receiving corps shouldn't be ranked ahead of the Packers' entering this season. It seems that for whatever reason some other experts think highly about Washington's unit though.

    It just seems like they are really undervaluing Jordy and what Jordy does for Cobb. It is fine though. This a top 5 group with one of the best qbs and a top 5 oline and pretty much a top 10 running back group. This offense should be elite

    While I agree the Packers offense is capable of performing at an elite level there's no doubt there are some question marks regarding the receiving corps entering this season.

    Yeah, I disagree with 5 of the teams ahead of us.

    I think part of the Packers fan base doesn't realistically assess the team's receiving corps. There's no doubt Green Bay has an elite receiver in Nelson (who is coming of a torn ACL though) and one of the best slot WRs in the league. Other than that there are question marks about every other pass catcher on the team. As of right now I don't consider the unit one of the best three in the NFL and #8 seems close to being accurate.

    Obviously and I know you cant act like last year didnt happen. However i see a lot of reason to trust the wr group with Jordy. He just makes everyone better. It is really the second outside wr that is a question. A lot of depth at the slot and te is improved

    I agree that Nelson will make life easier for every other pass catcher on the team. I'm optimistic about Adams being able to bounce back as well as Cook finally being able to perform up to his potential with an elite QB but it's far from a given.

    Yeah but if only one of cook or adams steps up this is easily a top end group. If both do i think it is likely the best in football
