When will the NFL team Green Bay Packers appear in a Super Bowl again?
The Green Bay Packers won the first 2 Super Bowls in 1967 and 1968. They finally won another one years later in 1997 with Brett Favre and Mike Holmgren. When they advanced to the Super Bowl in 1998, it was the franchise’s second time that they made it to the ultimate game in consecutive years. So far, only three other teams have accomplished that - Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, and Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Packers lost the 1998 Super Bowl game, but they won the last time they were there in 2011 with Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy. The 2011 championship team was built with Ted Thompson as the general manager since 2005. The following year McCarthy was hired. Tom Clements also became a Packers coach in the same year. he was the quarterbacks coach before he was promoted to be the team’s offensive coordinator in 2012. Ben McAdoo currently is the quarterbacks coach.
Dom Capers, Packers’ defensive coordinator, was hired in 2009. It was reported that he went to Texas A & M to learn a great deal about the read option and the pistol.
Playoff Games with Aaron Rodgers
In 2010, the Packers, seeded #5, lost a wild card game to the Arizona Cardinals.
In 2011, they were a wild card team and won all four games including of course, Super Bowl XLV.
In 2012, they were the first seed and lost to the New York Giants.
In 2013, they were seeded #3 after losing to the Minnesota Vikings in the final game of the season. They ended up winning one game and losing one game in the playoffs.
So far Aaron Rodgers is 5 - 3 in the playoffs.
Players to Catch Passes
Aaron Rodgers has plenty of good players to throw the football to even after Greg Jennings is not with the team anymore.
Wide Receivers - Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jordy Nelson
Tight End - Jermichael Finley
Running Backs - Johnathan Franklin, Alex Green. DuJuan Harris, Eddie Lacy and James Starks
The Packers will be relying on Mason Crosby again to field goals after he was quite inconsistent in 2012 during the regular season.
