"Greed is good"

Green Bay ranked 22nd in total defense last year.

Green Bay- "Greed is good" was a phrase used by a ruthless financial raider in the 1987 movie "Wall Street." The 2017 Packers could probably learn a thing or two.

Last year, Green Bay only had a total of 17 takeaways, and they ranked 22nd in total defense. As training camp gets into full swing, head coach Mike McCarthy wants to see more results from his defense unit.

"We need to take a big step in that area," McCarthy said after Monday's practice. "The one thing that stands out is our number of opportunities, takeaway opportunities, it's clearly not where it needs to be and I think that speaks to the energy and the attitude and aggressiveness of your defense."
