Thank the GM: Packers' additions pay off in Week 1 win

One of the easiest trends to spot in the Packers' season-opening win over the Bears was how big of an impact all of Green Bay's newest additions had on the game. For that, thank the GM, Brian Gutekunst.

Cory Jennerjohn of Cheesehead TV writes that the fact the Packers continue along in 2019 with a new identity (and a defense!) is all thanks to one man.

The person to thank is general manager Brian Gutekunst. Remember when everyone was upset when the Packers didn't land Mack via trade a year ago? This past offseason, he upgraded at each level of the defense by signing free agents Adrian Amos, Za'Darius Smith and Preston Smith as well as drafting Rashan Gary and Darnell Savage. Gutekunst had a plan. He knew that the defense needed a shot in the arm. That's why Nick Perry and Clay Matthews are no longer in Green Bay. That unit needed to get faster and more athletic and the first thing that had to happen, was he needed to cut the fat.
