There is no doubt that the Green Bay Packers are an outstanding football team, from their quarterback, to their receivers, to their defense. They are the reigning Super Bowl Champions and so far this season are 10-0. Their skill has allowed them to win every game so far. This has got some people asking the question, "What makes them so great?"

There are many things that make the Packers who they are. One of those things is their quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. When Rodgers first took over as Green Bay's starting quarterback in 2008, there were concerns if he would ever be able to fill the shoes of the great Brett Favre. It is my opinion that he has beyond filled the void left by Favre. I would say that Aaron Rodgers is, arguably, the best quarterback in the NFL today. He has completed 72.5% of his passes this season and has a 129.1 passer rating, which is phenomenal (ESPN). He also has shown that he knows how to run if he is under pressure, though his offensive line is usually pretty good at protecting him. I believe that part of the reason he is so good is because he stays calm in the pocket. He doesn't let the pressure of the game get to him; he with the same skill no matter what situation he is put in. Much of his success could also be contributed to his receivers.

The receivers are also a main contribution to the Packers success. Green Bay has 7 main wide receivers and tight ends: Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, James Jones, Jermichael Finley, and Andrew Quarless. Since the Packers have 7 main receivers, it allows them to assign each receiver the types of plays that they are best at. For instance, Greg Jennings and Donald Driver are good at catching really long passes so they can be mostly assigned to longer passes. Green Bay is such a passing team so the receivers are key.

Green Bay has a good defense as well. It is not one of the top defensives in the NFL, but they definitely have some key play makers. Desmond Bishop, who is a linebacker, is second in the NFL for tackles, with 76 tackles on the season. Some more key defensive players are Clay Matthews, A.J. Hawk and Charles Woodson. Woodson is Green Bay's leader in interceptions. He also second in the NFL. I'd say that the best part of the Packers defense is their secondary. They usually get multiple interceptions per game.

As you can see, Green Bay is a very talented, well rounded team. There is not much bad that I can say about them. After all, they are undefeated so far this season. Obviously, no team is perfect but with Green Bay's strengths like their quarterback and receivers, I think that the Packers are the closest to it in the NFL.
