Packers Earn a Different Kind of Victory

One might look at that headline and assume I’m just talking about a really big win.  That’s not what I mean.  I don’t mean a win against an elite team.  I don’t even mean mean a win aganst an elite quarterback.  I’m not trying to use this win to satisfy any of the misplaced narratives used by people to downplay the success of the 2014 Green Bay Packers.

Cory’s Corner: JC Tretter makes the most sense at left tackle

Ted Thompson admitted two things on Monday. One, he admitted that he made a mistake with first round pick Derek Sherrod.
