Clay Matthews Needs to Be Consistent Force for Packers

The Green Bay Packers defense got progressively better over the course of last season, and was a lot better overall than they were the year before. In recent Packers’ history, the defense’s success and failure revolves around the play of Clay Matthews.In 2013, when the defense ranked 25th in the league, Matthews appeared in a career-low 11 games. That year he recorded just 7...

Packers Are Envy of NFL Entering 2015 Draft

There are many teams entering the 2015 NFL Draft with a number of needs they are desperate to fill. But thankfully, the Green Bay Packers will not be one of them. The Packers have needs. Don’t get me wrong. They could use an inside linebacker to ease the burden on Clay Matthews and to play alongside Sam Barrington. Green Bay needs help at corner following the free agent departures...

Jalen Collins Is Perfect Fit for Packers in 2015 NFL Draft

The Green Bay Packers do not have many needs entering the 2015 NFL Draft but one position where they could use some help is cornerback, especially after losing both Tramon Williams and Davon House in NFL Free Agency this offseason. And while there are a number of solid corner prospects, none makes more sense for Green Bay than LSU’s Jalen Collins. Collins, who stands 6-1 and weighs...

Best Decisions of 2014

It’s always better late than never, so here are my top 5 decisions made by the Packers in 2014: 1) Switching Clay Matthews to ILB – The Packers don’t get within three minutes of the Super Bowl if Mike McCarthy and to a lesser extent Dom Capers don’t decide to move the Pro Bowl outside linebacker to a new position after the bye week. Not only was Matthews excellent inside...

Mockery: Mel Kiper projects Packers take LSU cornerback in the first round

One of the main reasons the Green Bay Packers got so deep into the playoffs last season was the excellent play of their secondary. Now that both Davon House and Tramon Williams have left in free agency they’re going to need to find replacements at cornerback in the draft.

Green Bay Packers Draft Needs

5. When looking at the current roster on paper, outside linebacker doesn't appear to be a need. With players like, Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers, Mike Neal and Nick Perry currently under contract, why draft an outside linebacker? Peppers isn't getting any younger. Neal and Perry are both free agents following the 2015-2016 season. Packers general manager, Ted Thompson is a man that...

Andrew Quarless: I'm in the 'top echelon' of NFL tight ends

The NFL doesn’t have many elite tight ends, but most everyone knows who they are: Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski and, wait, Andrew Quarless?

Packers’ Offense Should Be NFL’s Best in 2015

The Green Bay Packers had the best scoring offense in the NFL last season and with every single starter and most key backups returning, they will have a great chance to repeat that feat in 2015. Going into the off season, the Packers had questions surrounding whether or not they would keep receiver Randall Cobb or offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga. They did. And those two signings were...

And if you don’t believe me, just take a peek at the money the Redskins and Cowboys have splurged in free agency, with nothing to show for it. It still amazes...
