How do you get better than 15-1 season? Straight to the Super Bowl and Aaron Rodgers said you better get ready for the “nasty”.
“We’re going to be a better team this year,” Rodgers said. “We’re going to play better. We’ll be better up front [on defense], I think. Different attitude, I think. We brought in some guys with some nasty to them. I think there was a little bit of some too-comfortable mentality,” Rodgers said. ”One of the things that winning does is it masks some of the issues you might have. When you have a real successful season, the little things get swept under the rug and the big things become little things. It’s hard to knock a team on energy and enthusiasm and effort when you’re still going out and winning. But it can catch up to you at some point, and it did with us.”
With the Packers adding defensive players such as Anthony Hargrove, Daniel Muir, Jerel Worthy, and Mike Daniels to the line-up, they anticipate these players will fill in the missing gaps and make them explosive.
