So-So Summer For Hayward

I spent all offseason writing about how the Packers wouldn’t miss longtime starting corner Tramon Williams, who signed with Cleveland as a free agent, because Casey Hayward was more than capable of replacing him. Three weeks into camp, I’m no longer quite so confident. Simply put, the No. 29 I saw running around the practice field last week didn’t look like the No. 29 I saw...

The transformation of the Green Bay Packers secondary from the 2014 season to this season fully embodies what Ted Thompson is all about as a general manager and how he chooses to run the team. One of the strengths of Green Bay’s defense last season was its ability to run four cornerbacks out at a time who had the ability to plaster their man in coverage. In today’s NFL where...

Green Bay Packers position preview: Defensive backs

It is no secret.  The NFL has become a passing league over the past few years.  With more reliance on the passing game, teams are now trying to beef up the back end of their defense in the secondary.  The strategy has worked perfectly for the Seattle Seahawks and their “Legion of Boom.”  Although the Green Bay Packers do not have a hard hitting secondary, they have plenty...

Five Packers facing a make-or-break season in 2015

The business side of professional football is often brutal. The players who perform well are rewarded with rich contracts, while those who fail to live up to expectations are quickly forgotten. For a franchise to stay above water, dozens of these decisions must be made on a yearly basis. The Green Bay Packers, for one, manage their salary cap exceedingly well. They do not have any...

5 Guys That Have to Be Good- Casey Hayward

For the last two years I’ve been making a list of 5 guys that have to be good.  This kind of list isn’t obvious.  You’re not going to find Aaron Rodgers on this list.  These are guys that you might not think of right away regarding the overall success of the Packers.
