Their three rivals have reached the playoffs four times total in that span, with Chicago (41-39) owning the lone postseason victory, and Detroit (38-42) the only team to qualify more than once. Rodgers will have to instill confidence in his young players, and will need to prove that he is a legitimate leader which has been one of the areas that the media has questioned him. Cobb and Nelson were the first Packers duo to match this feat since 2009. If you haven’t drafted yet, keep them on your radar, and take them as a late-round flier.
