The 2014 NFL season is exactly six weeks away and we’re ramping up our speculation machine to full throttle here at cover32. If you’re curious to find out what will happen this year and don’t want to go through that whole messy business of waiting to find out, we’ve got you covered.
So dim the lights, turn your fog machine on and gaze into the crystal ball. Yoda said it best – the future is always in motion. Things could go well, and they could break bad. For now let’s take a look at the brighter side: here’s four hopeful headlines for the Green Bay Packers 2014 season.
1. Aaron Rodgers wins his 2nd MVP
Aaron Rodgers is the owner of what was indisputably the single greatest season for a quarterback in the history of the NFL… until Peyton Manning went and ruined everything last year. In case you’ve forgotten here’s a brief recap of what Rodgers did in 2011:
– Completed 343 of 502 passing attempts (68.3 percent)
– Threw for 4,643 total yards
– Averaged 9.25 yards per completion
– Threw 45 touchdowns and just six interceptions
– Passer rating: 122.5
That kind of season usually only comes along once in a life time. Fortunately for the Packers, Rodgers is a talent that defies history and logic. In 2013 Rodgers’ season was cut in half by injuries and he lost several of his best weapons as well. If the Pack can improve their pass protection and the receivers stay healthy, Rodgers will have a great shot at his second MVP award.
