With the best quarterback in the league still in his prime, each season, Packer fans hope for nothing less than another Super Bowl.
But another year has come and gone with no trip to the Super Bowl for the Green Bay Packers.
And we should know why, by now, as it is crystal clear.
Aaron Rodgers is the only "Championship Caliber" person on the Packers, and that especially includes the coaches, GM, and team president Mark Murphy.
With Rodgers healthy, the Packers are always one of the top three teams ranked by the Vegas Oddsmakers at the start of every year.
But how is the team with anyone else besides Rodgers at QB?
You know the answer. We see it. We saw it. We saw it in 2013, and despite four years to properly address it, the team still resembles more of a Cleveland Browns team than a Super Bowl contender.
Meanwhile, in Minnesota, the Vikings since last year have lost their starting QB Bridgewater to a knee, and their other starting QB they traded for, Sam Bradford, also to a knee.
They also lost their sensational rookie running back Dalvin Cook for the season, to another knee.
How are they doing? Yeah, they are running away with the NFC North, because they have a good defense, and a capable, experienced NFL quarterback. And they have a head coach who knows how to win without a Hall of Fame quarterback.
Ted Thompson has either given Mike McCarthy and Dom Capers a pile of crap to work with. Or else he's given them legit talent, but the coaching is not up to par. It's either/or, or else it's both in some combination.
You cannot sugarcoat it because the results are clear, and they are similar four years apart.
Now, the question is: Do you just live with it and hope Rodgers can keep carrying the team into the playoffs, but you punt your season anytime he gets injured?
Or do you realize that Rodgers is so great, that you better make some significant changes to the organization and build a better team from GM on down?

Here's a clue: Look to New England, where they also have a great QB #12, but one who has made SEVEN Super Bowls, often with the defense making the big difference.
