Packers finally getting the respect they deserve

NFL power rankings going into week 6

Last season, everyone said the Packers were, “a fake 13-3 team.” So far through the first 4 games of the season, the Pack look like the real deal. Not only do we have a top 10 defense for the first time in years, but we have the number one offense in the league right now even though we did not draft a wide receiver. The Packers also made history being the first NFL team to ever score 30+ points in each of their first 4 games while having 0 turnovers. I’d love for the Packers to keep this pace up because this is one of the best squads we have had in years and it has been a while since we have gone to a Superbowl. Aaron Rodgers deserves another ring.

When the NFL released their power rankings in week 1, the Packers we listed at #17 saying that, “the team didn’t get any better in the off season.” Let’s just say that ranking moved up pretty quick after the first game of the season, moving all the way up to #3. The next couple weeks, the Packers fluctuated around the top 10. Now being one of the four undefeated teams in the league, Aaron Rodgers being a solid MVP candidate, and having the best offense in football the Packers are now ranked as the #1 team in the league. A lot of people still don’t agree with that ranking but as a die-hard Packers fan, I know that the Packers never get the respect they deserve. Even when we have amazing seasons and Aaron Rodgers is playing great, the Packers usually never crack the top 3 rankings. That is why it is so refreshing to finally be ranked at #1. This is a championship caliber team and I think everyone on the team knows that. We just need to stay healthy and spend our last $8 million on one more piece that would cement our place as one of the elite teams in the NFL. If we got another edge rusher or wide receiver, we would easily have the most complete team in the NFL and would be favorites to win the whole thing.

  1. Hello Lukas!
    Before my I comment, I want to say that I am a Packers fan. I feel like the Packers are getting their respect, but I can also see how some people may still be suspect. The Packer’s defense is decent at best. They have been struggling despite the team winning. Also, if AaroN Rodgers is not feeling it in a game, I don’t know if the Packers have the weapons at receiver and running back to make up for an off week from Rodgers. Tampa Bay will be a real test, with Tampa Bay being a team that is a lot better than what their record shows.

  2. I agree that the pack got the respect they deserve, especially from when they were ranked so low but I don’t think we should be NO 1 definitely in the top 3 even before the loss to the Bucs.
