Since winning the super Bowl in 2010, the Green Bay Packers have slowly gained a reputation for being soft, just a finesse team. GM Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy have said they don’t feel that the team is soft, but behinds the scenes they do think they need to get tougher, more physical. According to Bob McGinn of JSonline.com, the upcoming draft is important in reversing the line of thinking that the team can’t rumble with the big boys. If the Packers want to compete with the likes of the 49ers or Giants, they will have to slug it out, not win a track meet. Teams such as New England and New Orleans suffer from the same ailment, and all three have something in common, high powered offenses. In accomplishing creating complicated passing offenses, the mentality tends to pass through the entire organization. Thompson and McCarthy are set to change this trend, and bring some physicality to the gridiron again. McGinn writes: ‘Finding bigger, more physical players for their 53-man roster should be the overriding theme for what the Packers attempt to accomplish in the upcoming draft. Heaven help the Packers if they think their finesse offense and underpowered defense will enable them to win road games against San Francisco, Baltimore and the New York Giants in the first 10 weeks of the season.’
