The Green Bay Packers stand alone as the only unbeaten team remaining in the NFL. While the team and its fan base can certainly take pride in that fact, make make no mistake about it - this is an underachieving bunch.
That's right - underachieving.
This seems to be a recurring theme so far through the 2011 season - a team that is bursting at the seams with talent, but one that just doesn't seem capable of grabbing the moment and putting it all together. Yet.
The good news is that it sure seems head coach Mike McCarthy and company are well aware of this fact. And yesterday's win over the punchless St. Louis Rams has given the position coaches more than enough tape for them to point out the flaws in their respective units.
Whether its the sloppy execution in the running game from the offensive line or the suspect tackling by the secondary early in the contest, the Packers coaching staff will be busy making corrections and generally making sure the players realize there are lots of areas for improvement, despite their perfect record.
And that may be the scariest thing of all for the rest of the league - that the defending Super Bowl champion, standing at 6-0, quarterbacked by arguably the best player in the NFL - not only has room to grow but hasn't come close to playing a complete game yet.
