Green Bay Packers: 2004
The 2004 Green Bay Packers were really a fun parallel to Brett Favre as a player. Favre was a gunslinger, and this season was a wild ride of feast or famine for the Packers.
Green Bay started off the season with a solid win against the Carolina Panthers but lost four straight games after that. Sitting there in the early portion of the season with a 1-4 record, things didn’t look good for the Packers at all but they had a quarterback who could help them turn things around quickly.
After the 1-4 start, the Packers ripped off nine wins in their final 11 games, earning a postseason bid and putting on a display offensively. Javon Walker and Donald Driver had huge seasons for Green Bay and after a playoff loss to the Vikings, the very next year in the 2005 NFL Draft, the Packers would use a late first-round selection on Aaron Rodgers.
