Packers Have Work to Do to Remain a Favorite in the NFC In 2016

The Packers are coming off yet another playoff season, but 2015 overall was a bit of a downer, as the team was able to make the playoffs, win a playoff game in Washington, but blew a great chance to reach the NFC Title Game as they lost in the divisional round to the Arizona Cardinals after forgetting to cover Larry Fitzgerald in overtime.

Now that it’s all said and done, the Packers window to get back to the Super Bowl is still open, but the team has plenty to do this offseason if they want to get back to the big dance, a place they have not been since beating the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV in February 2011.

As of the time of writing, the team currently is 12/1 to win the Super Bowl according to William Hill. Only the NFC Champion Panthers and the Seahawks have better odds, as both are listed right now at 10/1 to win Super Bowl XLI in February of 2017.

While the Pack will be looked upon as again a contender in the NFC, they as a team will have to look within to sign some of their free agents that will hit the market in just over a week.

Those players include: Mason Crosby, B.J. Raji, James Jones, John Kuhn, Michael Neal, Sean Richardson and Nick Perry. Here’s a complete list of the free agents for the Packers – FREE AGENTS.

The team will also need to address a couple positions, including inside linebacker, running back, nose tackle, tight end and punter. It will be a complicated offseason for the Pack, but if this team wants to make another run in the NFC next season, they will need to address these issues and make sure to be ready to go opening day 2016.
