Packers Aftermath: Packers at Lions

There was a time when the Green Bay Packers had the Detroit Lions’ number. It was as regular as the spring thaw and summer road construction. When the Packers played the Lions, it was a win. How much of a one sided affair was this rivalry? The Packers went 17-3 in the 2000’s against the Motor City. Three losses in a decade. In the 2010’s, they already have as many losses as...

Regrading the Packers Off-Season Acquisitions

Re-Signing James Starks #454652908 / Grade: B+ With Lacy already suffering his first injury this year, bringing back Starks has looked better than most would have presumed.  Also, Lacy has been somewhat ineffective so far this year, albeit playing against tough defenses in the Seahawks and the Jets.  Despite that, Lacy has posted a 2.8 and a 3.3 average so far...

Green Bay Packers: Why Cobb and Williams deserve new deals

During the offseason, the Green Bay Packers made it a big priority to sign wide receiver Jordy Nelson to a contract extension.  Considering that Nelson has been one Aaron Rodgers’ favorite targets since he came into the league in 2008, it was wise of the Packers management to give Nelson a four-year extension worth $39 million.  With Nelson signed for the future, the focus now...
