The Packers offensive line has certainly been a point of discussion this offseason.  The line took a big step forward last season and is now under contract through the 2016 season.  It’s now being compared to the Chad Clifton-Mike Wahle-Mike Flanagan-Marco Rivera-Mark Tauscher offensive line that Ahman Green ran behind.  It has the chance to be the best offensive line in the...

Grading the Lions Passing Game Heading into 2015

With a consistent run game and a healthy offensive line, the Detroit Lions could have one of the best offenses in the league. Let's break down and grade the different parts of their offense:Matthew Stafford - the "Baby-Faced Bomber". If that is not a nickname for him already, it should be now.

Running Game Will Continue Its Resurgence for Packers

Prior to Eddie Lacy’s arrival in Green Bay, the Packers did not have a rushing game that ranked in the top ten since the 2004 season, when Ahman Green was the starting running back. Since then, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers have made the team a perennial powerhouse in the passing game, but the running game had consistently ranked in the bottom half of the league.But drafting Lacy...

Ted Thompson and the “Moneyball” Approach to Roster Management

Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson has told reporters that he doesn’t play moneyball when building and turning over his roster. Translation: Ted Thompson most definitely plays moneyball. We all know it because he’s not afraid to let players walk away if the contracts don’t add up to his perceived value to the team. He’d rather replace that production with younger...

Packers Should Bring JJ Home

You can literally count on one hand the number of players Ted Thompson has brought back to the Packers. Quarterback Matt Flynn, running backs Ryan Grant and Ahman Green and tackle Mark Tauscher. That’s it. And it took some level of emergency to allow for those encores. So while I’m not expecting wide receiver James Jones to be catching passes from Aaron Rodgers next season, I’d...

Eddie Lacy must continue dominant football for Packers

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY SportsEddie Lacy was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the 61st overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, and he has completely changed their offense.

That being said, the Packers...

Packers Off Field Issues: Unfamiliar Territory

There are many signs that the NFL offseason is upon us:  The over-analyzation of how a player runs on the outside of his foot while weaving through cones in his underwear, the rumors about free agency and where players might end up and of course, what Brett Favre is up to.  Unfortunately, another is the many incidents of player arrests and trouble with law enforcement.

Packers 43, Falcons 37: Game Balls and Lame Calls

Raise your hand if you predicted the Green Bay Packers would be beating the Atlanta Falcons 31-7 at half and only win by six points? Hands down, liars. That’s exactly what happened. A stellar first half gave way to a near-disastrous second half as Green Bay barely hung on to beat the Falcons 43-37.

Cory’s Corner: Eddie Lacy is no Ahman Green, but is still special

Last year Eddie Lacy was crowned the Rookie of the Year and immediately after that, expectations ballooned. People began comparing him to the Packers’ all-time leading rusher Ahman Green — which is completely off the mark. First of all, Green had the ability to make staccato cuts as well as truck over defenders. In order for him to get past the first level and into more daylight...
