Agree about the defense thing - they are no where near where they were last year.
Saving grace is they force turnovers & with the efficency of their offense, their shoddy run D is somewhat mitigated due to teams being forced to abandon the run more often thn not - that leads to lots of big plays in the passing game, but also equates to more chances at INT's & Sacks.
I'm very curious to see how they play when Green Bay weather starts becoming a factor (which "should" have a negative effect on their offense)...
They currently rank:
28th in yards allowed per game @ 391 YPG
7th in scoring defense @ 20.1 PPG
T2nd in interceptions w/ 13 (1.86 per game)
T16th in sacks w/ 17 (2.43 per game)
T19th in forced fumbles w/ 5 (.71 per game)
T22nd in fumbles recovered w/ 3 (.43 per game)
Other than scoring & interceptions, they rank in the bottom half in all other categories, which is offset by where they are offensively...
1st in scoring @ 32.9 PPG
4th in total yards per game @ 423.3 typg
3rd in passing @ 323.4 pypg
24th in rushing @ 99.9 rypg
Not saying that this is going to come back to bite them in the ass, but I'm curious to see what happens what the defense does in a game adversly affected by the elements - are they going to be able to drop 30+ in GB in Decemeber? And, if not, are they going to be capable of winning a game when they only put up 17-20 points?
Just take a look at what happened in STL last week - New Orleans offense had one of those days & SJax had a field day... any given Sunday and all that jazz...
Twice this year, rookie QB's have given Green Bay a game that looked insanely lopsided on paper (granted both were on the road & Newton has been stellar), but 475 & 435 net yards in close games to rookie piloted offenses were both shocking to me...
