UDFAs Help Keep Cap Healthy

People often wonder how the Packers can win every season and still remain so far under the salary cap ($10.4 million). One reason is smart management. GM Ted Thompson rarely pays big money to undeserving players and chief negotiator Russ Ball does a terrific job of structuring contracts. The other reason is the unusually high number of undrafted free agents on the 53-man roster....

Can we all stop freaking out over the Packers’ offense?

Seriously, stop. This is not a team in crisis. No really, it’s not. If you look around the internet, you’d think the Green Bay Packers was holding up the NFC North basement. It’s laughable, I know. After all, the team is one of only a handful that is still undefeated heading into week six. Repeat after me: There are no style points in football. This isn’t fantasy football...

Should the Green Bay Packers be worried about their offense?

The Green Bay Packers beat the St. Louis Rams to improve to 5-0, but the Packers looked to be a bit off in the game. The defense looked excellent, and we can credit the defense for the win, holding the Rams to only 10 points and stopping them in the red zone multiple times. However, the offense did look a bit off and it actually hasn’t looked like the offense we’ve come to know...

The Best and the Wurst: Packers at 49ers

The Best and the Wurst is a weekly series wherein I highlight just a few of the things that stuck out to me in last week’s game.  They are not only or merely the best or wurst players overall, but are merely observations from the game.  Sometimes the considerations aren’t even players at all, but play calls, incidents, or various nonsense.       David Bakhtiari:  This...

Ted Can’t Ignore Tackle Again

General manager Ted Thompson hasn’t selected an offensive tackle in the past two drafts. It’s safe to assume that streak is going to end next spring. With Bryan Bulaga rehabbing yet again, David Bakhtiari stagnating and Don Barclay proving he belongs inside, no position is in greater need of reinforcements. Because Aaron Rodgers is putting up his usual incredible numbers and...

“Next Man Up” Not Slowing Green Bay Packers Down

It is only Week 3 and the Green Bay Packers have already had to deal with injuries to a number of key players on both offense and defense. Before the Packers’ Week 2 contest against the Seahawks even began, Green Bay had lost starting linebacker Sam Barrington and number one wide receiver Jordy Nelson for the entire season. A knee injury kept Bryan Bulaga out of the game, and his...

Don Barclay Shows Promise Against Seattle

There were certainly questions about how Don Barclay would hold up against the fearsome pass rush of the Seattle Seahawks — well with a solid effort Sunday night — he answered them in a positive fashion. Without starting tackle Bryan Bulaga due to injury, I’ll admit I was concerned about pass protection. But, Barclay, who struggled mightily in the preseason at times, performed...

Backups Save The Day

The Packers played the defending NFC champion Seahawks without three of their best players on offense and two starters on defense. And while quarterback Aaron Rodgers was brilliant as usual, Green Bay wouldn’t have won without big efforts from four backups. The Packers needed to move the ball effectively on the ground in order to slow down Seattle’s dynamic pass rush, and that...

Most devastating early injuries of 2015 NFL season

Football is an extremely vicious and physical sport, which means every player and team must be prepared for the worst. In 2014, impact players went down and their team’s chances went down with them. Some of last year’s victims included Carson Palmer and Victor Cruz. The 2015 offseason had its share of injuries with players like Jordy Nelson, Kelvin Benjamin and No. 3 pick Dante...

The Big Game of NFL Week 2: Seattle at Green Bay

Is there any denying that the biggest game of the second week of the 2015 NFL regular season is that of the Seattle Seahawks vs. the Green Bay Packers? Is there any denying that this game -- so early in the season -- may well go a long way to determining home field advantage in the post-season playoffs? Also, is there any denying that the Packers desperately want to take down this...

Preview: Packers vs. Seahawks

Green Bay played Seattle last September without Bryan Bulaga, and thanks to a knee injury suffered by the veteran right tackle in practice on Thursday, history will repeat itself on Sunday night. The Packers can only hope the outcome of the game will be different. The two-time defending NFC champs won by nearly three TDs a year ago. Last year’s game was tied at 10 when Bulaga...

Last season the Green Bay Packers played Seattle twice and lost both times, once in the season opener and once in the NFC Conference Game when the Packers blew a lead late it the 4th quarter.
