Aaron Rodgers is lauded by fans and pundits every season as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. And why wouldn't he be? He's extremely accurate, has excellent pocket awareness, and leads his team into the playoffs almost every year. But despite all of those traits, Rodgers has just one Super Bowl win. Part of the blame for that can be placed on a defense that never seems to give Aaron enough help. This season, Aaron Rodgers would like to see the Packers front office address some of the gaping holes in that defense.

Rodgers Has Great Vision for the Future.

Aaron Rodgers really likes the state of his offense for the 2017 NFL season. In an interview with Evan Daniels Podcast, he said "Coach McCarthy has a great system that's ever evolving and changing, and I'll put my stamp on it once we get it down on paper."

That offense was scary last season, especially late in the year. But the Packers defense was never particularly impressive, something that Rodgers admitted in the same interview. Aaron spoke of a "need" to add more players on defense, something that the Packers could do through both the draft and free agency.

Weak Points.

The Packers have holes in the secondary that need to be filled. In the playoffs, Packers and cornerbacks and safeties struggled with the speed of opposing Falcons receivers, and especially with the speed of star Julio Jones. The departure of Micah Hyde left the Packers relatively thin at the safety position, and cornerback talent should be added as well. With a solid defense, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers would be unstoppable and could easily contend for another Super Bowl.

Holes on Offense.

But that doesn't mean there aren't holes on offense as well. Eddie Lacy left and signed with the Seattle Seahawks. The Packers have only wide receiver hybrid running back Ty Montgomery to replace him. They will have to address that need by either drafting one or signing a free agent. The Packers also lost guard T.J. Lang in free agency. Even if defense is a priority, protecting Aaron Rodgers has to be priority #1.

Without him, the Packers would have no shot of winning a Super Bowl in 2017.
