Reasons For Optimism In 2021

Yes, the 2020 season ended in disappointing fashion.

If one play or one call or playcall would have been different, the Packers could have been in the Super Bowl. Based on the disarray the Chiefs were in from injuries and off-the-field issues, the Packers may very well have won.

But it didn’t happen.

There’s looming salary cap issues in 2021 and some key players surely won’t be back, but there are a lot of reasons to be optimistic for the 2021 season and we’ll be counting them throughout the offseason.

This page will house the running list of all those reasons.

Reason #1: Aaron Rodgers

Reason #2: Matt LaFleur

Reason #3: Jaire Alexander

Reason #4: David Bakhtiari

Reason #5: Rashan Gary

Reason #6: The Bears Still Suck

Reason #7: Big Bob Tonyan

Reason #8: Za’Darius Smith

Reason #9: Maurice Drayton

Reason #10: Jordan Love

Reason #11: The 2021 Draft Wide Receiver Class


The games won’t start again for a while, but there’s a lot to follow in the offseason, including our ongoing draft and free agency coverage at Draft Central 2021.
