Francois-Marie Arouet, more commonly known as Voltaire, is credited with first saying, “with great power comes great responsibility.” In France during the 19th century, Voltaire was bothered by the gross misuse of power and privilege by authority while the less fortunate were deprived and left to suffer.

“Last year, I didn’t do anything too good in the running game, so I think it was a great thing for us to get back out there, make a step in the draft and help the team win football games,” said Green, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel....
First Round: Datone Jones, DE, UCLA
ANALYSIS: I've been mocking this pick to them for a while, and I really love the fit. He fills Green Bay's biggest need of a pass rushing DE (in the 3-4), he provides good value, and I think he will excel in Green Bay. Not to mention he will also take tons of pressure of Matthews and Perry coming from the OLB position. It was a tossup...

Ball-security is paramount for the Packers, and Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin should fit that mold. Both had fumbling problems early in their career but alleviated those issues due to focus and hard work.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's been a busy and productive year for Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy and the rest of the team's executives.
Setting the franchise's all-time record for profit in 2012 of 43 million -- in addition to 64 million raised in the recent stock sale -- has allowed Murphy and the Packers to be able to accomplish all of their goals. The most important...

They include the Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders and the Carolina Panthers.
The Packers face some interesting history when they take on the Cowboys & Steelers in 2013
When the Green Bay Packers 2013 schedule was announced, one thing was very clear: it’s going to be a doozy of a season for the Packers. They have one of the toughest schedules in the league and it will certainly challenge them to repeat as NFC North division winners.
I thought we’d...
