La Crosse, WISCONSIN (WXOW) Imagine the Packers offense averaging more than the 35 points a game they averaged in 2011.
Hard to believe they can, but at least one player thinks so.
Receiver Jordy Nelson was one of the linchpins in that explosive attack.
Nelson was one of the current Packer players in La Crosse Tuesday as part of the statewide Tailgate Tour.
Nelson scored 15 touchdowns last season after scoring two each in his previous three seasons.
He envisions a more productive offense in 2012.
"We can be better. There's certain things we can do. There's certain things over the year we can be fine with, but we can still be more consistent such as on third downs, sometimes in the red zone. But we're very explosive. We've got great players across the board," Nelson said.
Meanwhile, it was well documented how the Packers defense took it's lumps last year.
They ranked last in the league.
Safety Charlie Peprah has started 25 games the last two seasons.
He knows they need to recapture the magic they had during their Super Bowl run in 2010.
"For the most part it's the same personnel, same scheme. We just weren't on our "A" game. We weren't disciplined. We're on a mission to shore that up. As a defense we want the onus on us. We want to go back to making the game easy for A-rod and those guys," Peprah said.
