Since winning the Super Bowl in 2010, the Packers are 34-13-1. A very good record, but it feels a little disappointing in light of their postseason performances (1-3 in those three years). Lots of blame is directed towards the defense, which lacked at times over the past few years. Aaron Rodgers believes Green Bay's improved on that end and, overall, is now a "bigger, more physically intimidating team" than before. "I think we're a bigger, more physically intimidating team," Rodgers told Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. "We haven't had the kind of physical talent as far as size here in a while. I think there's been times -- I think back to playing Jacksonville in '08 in Jacksonville [a 20-16 Packers' loss], some of the battles we've had with our division teams at times -- where you walk on the field and feel like you're kind of a JV team." He's not disparaging the previous iterations of the Packers. Again, they were very good. But Rodgers thinks additions like Julius Peppers (6'7", 287 pounds) on the defensive line and Richard Rodgers (6'4", 257) at tight end "We've still won a lot of games looking like that, but it's fun when you walk around the locker room and you've got guys like [Julius] Peppers, [Adrian] Hubbard, Datone Jones and then with Derek [Sherrod] back with his size, adding size at receiver, tight end with Richard Rodgers," Rodgers said. "We just haven't had guys in some of these positions with those body types, and that's exciting."
