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

Ted Thompson on the Prowl
Since Ted Thompson has had final say in who the Packers draft, there have been a number of, WHO?, picks. Nick Collins, Jerron McMIllian, James Jones, Josh Sitton come to mind looking back at different drafts and remembering the comments by many of the sideline GM’s. You could have got this or that player way later and TT should have taken this or that...

Pick the Packers’ Elite Eight
After a few days of voting, the fans have had their say and the Packers’ Elite Eight players have been chosen. As a reminder this was a vote for the Packers’ BEST pure football players, not those with the most value to them.
I’m holding back the order and percentages of the top eight (for now), so as not to influence our Final Four voting. Don’t...
No I am not talking about Joe Flacco. That guy plays an okay regular season, plays out of his mind in one postseason, wins the Super Bowl, and gets the richest contract in NFL History. Did the Ravens get a little too carried away? That’s obvious, but the bigger question is if anyone else deserves a contract like that in the near future. No, I don’t mean Tony Romo guys; I’m...
PUT THE GREEN IN GREEN BAY
The Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers reportedly are getting nearer to working out contract terms and apparently are only a few million dollars apart.
The Green Bay Packers are known to have some of the most loyal fans in all of sports. With loyalty in sports comes just a little bit of insanity, which can be displayed with things like this tattoo Green Bay Packer fan Terry Wagner has of star linebacker Clay Matthews:
While I think stuff like this is crazy, you have to admire the passion!

Packers GM Ted Thompson
Trying to figure out Mocks that involve all 32 teams seems absolutely impossible to my old mind. Trying to construct something that captures the scheming and mechanization of TED THOMPSON’s mind may be even more daunting. But at least it only involves 8 Picks and no one in their right mind expects anything close to it to actually occur at the end of April...
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports that the Green Bay Packers and QB Aaron Rodgers currently remain $2 million apart regarding a long-term extension.

Rapoport source adds that the two sides are still trying...

How close are the two parties on finalizing a deal, well according to NFL.com, Rodgers and the Packers are about $2 million a year apart on a new contract.
The Packers current...
GREEN BAY, Wis. New Green Bay Packers kicker Giorgio Tavecchio had no interest in football growing up. He didn't watch it and he certainly didn't play it. Even a decade after moving to the United States, the Italian-born Tavecchio was still irritated by the sport as he reached his early teenage years.
"To be honest, and I hate to say it, but I was the most anti-football...
The Packers own the 26th pick of the draft, and there is a strong history for landing a good player. Among the best of the No. 26 selections: Clay Matthews.
Surviving Sundays with no Packers Football
As I was observing the buzz created this week by the U.S. Supreme Court hearings on gay marriage, I couldn’t help but think about former Packers great Reggie White.
Most Packers fan who are old enough probably remember this speech by White in front of the Wisconsin state legislature in March of 1998. White was scheduled to talk about some...
Hot News for QB Aaron Rodgers
I have a confession to make: I’m completely clueless when it comes to NFL draft prospects. Okay, well maybe not clueless, but I don’t follow college football, so it’s hard to really know much about these guys moving around the draft boards. Once a guy gets drafted by the Green Bay Packers, then I take the time to read up on his scouting report and check out the highlight reels...
