Bottom Line

Brady has found different ways to get to Super Bowls so Rodgers and surely find another way to get to the NFC Championship game. He the best quarterback in the NFL and it’s not like his cupboard is bare with Nelson out. Sure, Nelson is valuable and Rodgers counted out him a lot to win games.

But Greg Jennings and Donald Driver were his guys when Rodgers won a Super Bowl and they’re gone. So just like he had to adjust and rely more on Nelson, he can rely on Adams and Montgomery more. And when you look at the defense, the Packers won’t even have to score as many points.

Running back Eddie Lacy may or may not get a spike in carries but the Packers will still be aerial. And as long as Rodgers is the quarterback of the Packers, the team will always be a contender. Nelson is great but Rodgers is the one the makes that thing go and will make other receivers to make up for losing him.
