Green Bay Packers: Star Players for 2014

Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. Rodgers was drafted by the Packers in 2005 and spent three seasons as back-up to Brett Favre. Rodgers took over the starting role in 2008 and has developed into the most complete passer in the NFL. Rodgers became the only player in NFL history to throw for over 4,000 yards in each of the first two seasons as a starting quarterback. In 2010 he was Super Bowl MVP, as he led the Packers to their forth Super Bowl Championship. Rodgers had statistically his best season ever in 2011; finishing the season with the best passer rating in NFL history and was awarded the AP NFL MVP award. After a broken collarbone saw him play in only nine games in 2013, the Packers' strength wavered. He still managed to score the most passes and run the most yards out of the entire squad in his nine games. Hopefully he can remain injury-free in 2014 and bring the Packers the glory they search for.

Offensive Star: Eddie Lacy

Running back Eddie Lacy was selected by the Packers in the second round of the 2013 draft after an impressive college career with the back-to-back national champions University of Alabama. With a reputation for agility, strength and ability to run through tackles, Lacy was one of the top running back prospects in the draft and has found a home with the Super Bowl fancied Packers, in the only position that seemed somewhat lacking last season. In 2013, he rushed 100+ yards in just four games. Lacy finished the season with an impressive 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns with 257 receiving yards. As expected, he was selected as the 2013 Offensive Rookie of the Year, the first Packer chosen for the award since 1971.

Defensive Star: A.J. Hawk

A.J. Hawk was drafted by the Packers fifth overall in the 2006 NFL Draft, and was a member of the sides Super Bowl XLV championship team. He also played college football for Ohio State, where he earned All-American honors twice and was recognized as the top college linebacker. In his rookie season for the Packers Hawk placed third in the AP's Defensive Rookie of the Year. As of December 2013, Hawk has either led the team or finished second in tackles in six of his seven seasons in Green Bay. He finished his 2013 season with a combined 118 tackles and 5 sacks.

Head Coach: Mike McCarthy

Mike McCarthy began his NFL coaching career as an offensive assistant at the Kansas City Chiefs in 1993. He was the offensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints from 2000-2004 and moved to the San Francisco 49ers in 2005. The next season he was announced as the new head coach for the Packers. McCarthy has led the Packers to winning seasons in six of his eight seasons in charge. He has qualified the side for the playoffs in the last five seasons and led the side to a Super Bowl victory in 2010 and a 15-1 regular season record in 2011. Despite a slightly less impressive 2012, McCarthy still managed to usher the packers into the playoffs, losing only to eventual Super Bowl runners up San Francisco.
