Rodgers says Packers will have some tough decisions

2011 version that finished 15-1 in the regular season.

The Packers will have some tough calls to make at wide receiver as well.  After Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and James Jones, do they hang on to veteran Donald Driver or go with some of their youth.  Tori Gurley and Diondre Borel have both performed well in camp and warrant a good hard look.  Driver restructured his contract in the offseason and has been rock solid in the first week of camp, proving so far that he has some fuel left in the tank.

A wealth of players added on defense have also raised the energy level, something that a number of players have mentioned already and Rodgers re-iterated today.
