If Aaron Rodgers stays in Green Bay, I would pin them as the favorites to win the division again. Rodgers was the undisputed MVP of the league and is as elite as they come. If he isn’t, I couldn’t give you the slightest clue.
The Vikings had a down year but they’re not as bad as their record indicated. They have two rising stars in Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson. Kirk had a great year and they’re just looking to build on what they have.
The Lions completely overhauled everything. They got a brand new coach in Dan Campbell, traded for former No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff, and are now looking to build an actual culture in Detroit.
The Bears decided to give Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy another chance for the 2021 season. The Bears are most likely going to let Trubisky walk. There have been rumors that Ryan Pace is going to pull a big trade, but until that happens, I have the Bears ranked last in our division.
The defense is only getting older and older. The Bears have guys robbing them with their current contracts (more thanks to Ryan Pace). They have no idea who is going to play quarterback. That is going to be one of the more interesting Bears topics this offseason. The Bears might just roll the dice with Foles, or they might look into bringing someone like Jameis Winston or Derek Carr.
The four starting Qbs for the NFC North were Kirk Cousins, Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, and Mitch Trubisky/Nick Foles. The Vikings and Lions have their guys in Cousins and Jared Goff. The Bears have no idea who is playing QB1 and The Packers might be in that same dilemma.
For now, the fate of the NFC North is in Aaron Rodgers’s hands.
