Playing Defense Like It’s 2010

In 2006, Prince partied like it’s 1999. In 2015, the Packers are playing defense like it’s 2010. It’s still very early, and Dom Capers’ guys have hardly gone up against a murderer’s row of QBs, but it’s hard not to be encouraged about what’s happening on that side of the ball. Sunday’s 17-3 victory over San Francisco may have been the defense’s finest performance...

Packers can’t fall for the hype

I hate offseason accolades. As in really hate them. The NFL Top 100 Greatest Players is a great example of that. “Voted on by the Players.” Sure the Packers’ own Aaron Rodgers usually factors somewhere in the top ten, depending on the team’s success the year before. Sure, it’s nice and all, but it has all the warm fuzzies of a participation medal. You know, the Thanks for...
