    I'll take the over.
    BTW why wait? Avoid the rush and bump the existing FIRE CAPERS thread now.

    Whether it's a reflection of the offensive dip last season or a genuine belief that the D is going to be really good this year, that's the side of the ball that is highlighted, uncharacteriscally, on this year's Green Bay Packers Yearbook.

    http://lghttp.50380.nexcesscdn.net/80288EA/magento/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95//3/5/3506277019_37_13_2500.jpg

    The Packers had the 15th ranked defense in the league last year and were 5th in the NFC but they were only 37 yards more than the 5th ranked defense Minnesota.

    They were 6th against the pass, allowing 7.1 yds. per catch, but continued traditional struggles against the run at 21st and 4.5 ypc.

    Their 20.2 ppg allowed was less than two points per game more than Super Bowl champion Denver.

    They had respectable totals with 43 sacks and 16 interceptions.

    Only 6 teams in the league had a lower percentage of drives ending in an offensive score than the Packers at 31.3%,

    They played well enough in big games to have helped the club to an even bigger season than they had. They held Detroit, Chicago and Minnesota to 18, 17 and 13 points, respectively, in the 3 home games in-division they lost last season and allowed Arizona 20 in regulation to position the team for an overtime. Had the offense been its usual self the difference in outcomes there could have had the Packers with a 5th straight division title and in at least the conference championship game.

    Perhaps that's in part why the Packers were getting some defensive love, as this midsummer article exhibits. http://www.sportingnews.com/nfl/new...view-training-camp/12289v5qr8hqd1spa7btn88jhj
