Defense Shouldn’t Be This Bad

Blame general manager Ted Thompson for squandering high draft picks on defensive players who have been either terrible (Jerel Worthy) or mediocre (B.J. Raji, Nick Perry and Mike Neal). Blame him for signing average players to big contracts (A.J. Hawk, Brad Jones and Morgan Burnett). And blame him for not using unrestricted free agency to plug gaping holes. But don’t blame him for...

Cory’s Corner: Anyone want to play nose tackle for the Packers?

As soon as B.J. Raji was lost for the season this past August, my mind started to race. I wondered if general manager Ted Thompson would pick up the phone and call Ryan Pickett. After all, the 6-foot-2, 310-pound defensive tackle played eight seasons for the Packers. He started all 16 games in 2012 and 2013. I also wondered if Thompson would kick the tires on Johnny Jolly. He received...

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Is Already an Impact Player for the Green Bay Packers’ Defense

The Green Bay Packers selected Ha Ha Clinton-Dix with the No. 21 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft because they thought he could be a playmaker. And after four games, it looks like they were right because Clinton-Dix has already become one of the most impactful players on the Green Bay defense.

Datone Jones Becoming a Force on Green Bay Packers’ Defensive Line

When the Green Bay Packers selected Datone Jones in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, they thought they were going to get a dominant force on their defensive line.

But now, in year two, the freakish defensive lineman from UCLA, is making plays and finally looks like the...
