For the last decade or so the Packers have had really good Madden teams but they never seem to be one of those completely overpowered teams that everyone uses. It is more of the same this year.
We’ve got the full Madden 17 Green Bay Packers team breakdown below.
Team: Green Bay Packers
Offensive Strategy: Air it out. The Packers have one of the most complete quarterbacks in Madden 17 in Aaron Rodgers. The receivers are still dangerous and the addition of Jared Cook will be huge. Mix in Eddie Lacy once in a while and you will have an extremely tough offense to stop.
Defensive Strategy: Balanced 3-4. The Packers don’t have a dominant part of the defense. They’ve got pretty good players on the defensive line, at linebacker, and in the secondary. You’ve got some freedom on defense.
Impact Players: QB Aaron Rodgers, HB Eddie Lacy, WR Jordy Nelson, WR Randall Cobb, TE Jared Cook, LG Josh Sitton, RG T.J. Lang, RE Mike Daniels, MLB Clay Matthews, ROLB Julius Peppers, CB Sam Shields, FS Morgan Burnett, SS Ha Ha Clinton Dix
Strengths: Quarterback. When you have a top 3 Madden quarterback on your team, you can do a lot of things that other teams won’t be able to do. Aaron Rodgers is also fast enough to make the other team worry about him running every now and then.
Weaknesses: Lack of a game changing running back. Eddie Lacy is a good power running back but your opponents won’t be all that worried about him taking over the game. It isn’t a big weakness, but the Packers don’t have too many glaring holes in Madden 17.
Overview: The Packers come into Madden 17 with a team that is unquestionably a top 10 team but they aren’t one of those elite level teams that everyone will use at this point.
