Found March 10, 2013 on The Penalty Flag:
To say the Green Bay Packers defense is terrible based on one Playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers is shortsighted, but the Packers’ defense is their weakest link. You don’t think of the Packers as a shutdown defense, but the 2013 NFL draft will offer tons of possibilities for the Packers to work toward getting back to that type of defense. Or at the very least a playmaking defense, because the Packers went from 31 interceptions in 2011 to 18 in 2012... Read more

Green Bay Packers GM Ted Thompson Should Be Bold and Sign Steven Jackson

  Steven Jackson could be the guy to help Green Bay get back to the Super Bowl. The Green Bay Packers do not take many risks in NFL Free Agency. In fact, for the most part, general manager Ted Thompson stays away from it altogether – choosing instead to focus on re-signing the players he has drafted that prove worthy of second or even third contracts. Yet, sometimes you have to...

Ranking The Rookies: Jerron McMillian

Fourth-round safety played more than expected last season The Green Bay Packers began the season with 10 rookies on the 53-man roster. That’s a pretty high number – especially for a team than won 15 games the previous year. But GM Ted Thompson didn’t hang on to all those rookies to save money or to make himself look good. He kept them because they could play. In fact, seven...

Packers Haven’t Ruled Out Re-Signing WR Greg Jennings?

Ian Rapoport reports that the Green Bay Packers are still trying to negotiate free agent WR Greg Jennings. Rapoport adds that Jennings has ”significant interest” from teams like the Colts, Browns, and Vikings. If true, it’s hard to imagine the Packers offering top-dollar for Jennings. They typically try to retain their own players, but this could have a big impact on their...

Packers' Williams never far from his teddy bear

No one around campus at the University of Arkansas is happy to just run into Green Bay Packers tight end D.J. Williams anymore. These days, it's all about the photo-bombing, life-of-the-party stuffed teddy bear that accompanies Williams wherever he goes. It's all about Ted. "Everyone I talk to is more interested in the teddy bear than talking to me," Williams...

Packers Can Cut Finley With Little Worry

If Dustin Keller signs with the packers, we will anoint him as “Toolbox Too”. Get it?….like Teenwolf Too? Get It? it’s funny….like a big foam cowboy hat. Funny. It is obvious that Jermichael Finley does not fit the “Packer People” tune that Mike McCarthy sings.   With the departure of Donald Driver and impending departure of Greg Jennings, Packer nation is feeling...

Dynasty Fantasy Football: Why Randall Cobb is More Valuable than Percy Harvin

“They have too many receivers for him to make an impact.” “He’s nothing but hype.” “They’ll have to work too hard to get him involved.” These are a few of the things I heard after taking Randall Cobb last year in my dynasty draft, and chances are, so did you.   Upon his arrival at Kentucky, Cobb started his collegiate career at quarterback. After accounting for...

Free Agents Who Could Help Packers

49ers linebacker Larry Grant would bring a physical presence to Green Bay’s defense The start of free agency on Tuesday is like an unofficial holiday for many fans, but for Cheeseheads, Tuesday is just the second day of another work week. That’s because the Packers have signed only four unrestricted free agents since 2008. General manager Ted Thompson doesn’t figure to change...
