I remember the mid 90's Packers- played in two Super bowls, won one, got knocked out in the NFC Championship a few times. Obviously a team that was much better than "average/above average". But with all due respect to Desmond, Reggie and Leroy Butler, the present day Packers are better.
I don't know anyone who has called the Packer defense "great". But they have a defensive coordinator who is a genius, and a lot of playmakers in Matthews, Raj, Williams, and of course the incredible Woodson. They really miss Nick Collins. They're not great, but as they proved today, they're not bad.
