With the start of the NFL season fast approaching, we continue our look around the league division by division with a stop in the NFC North, where we have a pretty good idea which team will finish first and an even better idea which team will finish last, but the middle of the division is more interesting.
The cream of the division is, of course, the Green Bay Packers, who sported the best record in the regular season last year. As we chronicled earlier, the Packers were basically a non-factor in free agency. They do, however, return virtually every key player, and added much-needed reinforcements to the defensive front seven in the draft.

Under general manager Ted Thompson, the Green Bay Packers always have looked first to the draft as the right way to build a contender. That philosophy was readily apparent in the way Thompson tried to fix one of the league's leakiest defenses this offseason.
The Packers took defensive players with their first six picks in April, including outside linebacker Nick Perry and defensive...
Considering the drunk driving epidemic that has taken a hold of the NFL this offseason — and subsequently cost one player his job — it’s time for somebody to step up and deliver a message.
The time has come, and that somebody is T.J. Lang.
