Jarrett Boykin Wide receivers are known as the “shiny hood ornament” of the NFL because largely their production is tied to their quarterbacks; even a wide receiver like Larry Fitzgerald or Andre Johnson have had abysmal seasons with ineffectual quarterbacks behind center.  Furthermore, great/good wide receivers have left for greener pastures in free agency only to be met with...

The faster the better. That's what Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy has planned for his offense this season. And why not, especially with Aaron Rodgers on board with the idea? McCarthy and his quarterback have one primary goal in mind for 2014: Run 75 plays per game. Do that, and everything else -- big numbers for Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson, Jarrett Boykin and possibly...

Packers Breakout Candidate: Jarrett Boykin

Jarrett Boykin is living proof that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. In this case Boykin was the Jacksonville Jaguars trash and turned into Aaron Rodgers’ treasure.

Packers 2014 Draft: Why Green Bay Needs Colorado WR Paul Richardson

I know that the first thing people usually think about when it comes to the Packers drafting players in the first round is defense, but in this case taking a nice WR like Colorado’s Paul Richardson might not be a bad idea.
