Based on extensive interviews with three NFL executives, our longtime scribe gets the unfiltered analysis. Could this be Detroit's year? How far will Joshua Dobbs carry the Vikes? And... Green Bay?
Interesting comparing some of these to the last time Bob did a version of this, at the end of the 2021 season. For GB, guys like Runyan and Myers have slipped down from where they were ranked. The same goes for Jones & Dillon at RB, Campbell at LB and Savage at safety. Either the division has gotten better (definitely possible) or some of these players have declined. The latter possibility is probably the most disappointing part of this season; everyone knew Love would have growing pains, but the thought was this team was good enough on the O-Line and on defense that it would lessen those pains.
Packers are paying the price for kicking the can down the road trying to capitalize on Rodgers tenure at the end. Jury is still out on Love, RB room needs a reboot. Tom and Jenkins are the only OL keepers, the rest are just guys. WR/TE room has potential. Hoping Gary plays up to his contract. I have hopes that the DL will play better against the run with a new DC and scheme (please fire Joe Barry). Secondary needs help at both positions. Get ready for a few more years of struggle (like this year).
The Packer's team record does not lie, lack of talent everywhere
