by DUSTY EVELY I apologize for my absence. Once I decided to focus on this Julius Peppers post, I stopped working on my regular Packers defense posts. This one took me longer than I thought it would, and I ran into a number of roadblocks along the way that made it take even longer. Once […]

Peppers disappoints in preseason debut for Packers

Two years ago, you could see in the Green Bay Packers' Family Night scrimmage and first preseason game that free-agent center Jeff Saturday was hitting the wall.

Green Bay Packers: Final offseason move that needs to be made

With training camp getting ready to begin in about a month, teams are putting the finishing touches on their initial rosters.  Some teams are cutting guys that they feel cannot help their team, while others are signing players that will help contribute in some way.  For the Green Bay Packers, I believe should go out and sign another player.  It has been no secret that the Packers...
