Believe it or not, the Packers have bigger problems than Brett Favre heading into 2008. (And boy did it feel good not typing that name even once in that last post...) If you think about it, however the Favre drama plays out, the Packers will have added value to their team that wasn't there last month, whether it be the addition of Favre's playing services or an extra draft pick or two.
No, the bigger problem for the Packers is the fact that their defensive line could be in big trouble in 2008. Johnny Jolly's issues, coupled with KGB and Justin Harrell's injury problems, on top of the loss of Corey Williams, leaves the strength of the defense in 2007 in a precarious position. Despite the reports that the Packers will be blitzing more this season, the defense is still run by Bob Sanders, who never met a vanilla scheme he didn't like. And all those vanilla schemes need exceptional play up front, and right now, 'exceptional' is not a word I'd apply to anyone on Green Bay's defensive line other than Aaron Kampman and Ryan Pickett.
