First off, are we talking about including FAs guys like Clay Matthews? or no? And if no, then who's our edges?
So last year, I don't think the Packers (pure talent wise) were that much worse than the Rams or the Patriots... of course I think the Rams and Patriots are very over rated as far as pure talent, because their scheme literately got the best out of them. Where the Packers scheme sure as hell didn't get the best out of them.
I think the big difference are
1) Offensive scheme (MM put a ton of pressure on QB/OL)
2) Getting everyone on the same page on offense
3) DBs/DL/WR didn't stay healthy
4) Safeties aren't talented enough (WRs didn't really have a #2 either unless maybe TE Graham or Allison).
