Pack­ers miss­ing mark on de­fense

Packer Plus - - Extra Point -

Rob Reis­chel laid it out in his ar­ti­cle in the May 4-10 Packer Plus edi­tion that GM Ted’s Achilles heel is the de­fense. It was seen last sea­son in the NFC Cham­pi­onship Game against At­lanta. It has been in the last 11 sea­sons with him in charge of se­cur­ing de­fen­sive play­ers and build­ing a solid, for­mi­da­ble, im­pen­e­tra­ble, pow­er­ful de­fense; and we saw it dur­ing this year’s draft, his 13th.

Ted’s ten­dency is the of­fense. Tremen­dous! So he got Martel­lus (the ham­mer) Ben­nett and two or three other good TEs in ad­di­tion. He has, it ap­pears, plugged up the guard spots and be­sides draft­ing ad­di­tional re­ceivers, we have a pretty good sup­ply on hand.

So, why in the world didn’t he con­cen­trate more on the de­fense in this draft?

It seems to me he can’t or has no pas­sion in build­ing strong, for­ti­fied D-first as the ba­sis for a win­ning team.
