It is hard to remember a betting on sports season where the NFC North was talked about without the bulk of the focus being on quarterback Brett Favre, and his seemingly endless battle with whether or not it is finally time for him to leave the game.
While the Green Bay Packers finally seemed like they had moved past the issue as a team during their run to the playoffs a year ago, his presence in Minnesota was the missing piece the Vikings needed to emerge as a legitimate Super Bowl contender.
Challenging them for the top spot will be Favre’s old team, now led by Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers finally reached his potential in leading one of the top offenses in the league a year ago, and if not for a face mask call that wasn’t made in the Packers’ playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals, who knows how far Green Bay would have been able to make it. Rodgers has a plethora of weapons around him, which have helped him create, including wide receiver Greg Jennings who is one of the most dangerous in the betting on NFL game. The switch to the 3-4 worked wonders for the defense, whose talent and skills better suited the system than the 4-3 they used the year before. Another year learning how the 3-4 works should have Green Bay competing for a Wild Card spot once more.
