What the Green Bay Packers Must Do To Return to the Super Bowl

The Green Bay Packers were just a few plays away from going to the Super Bowl. Rather than talking about how the Packers will match-up against the Patriots in next week’s Super Bowl, their stunning loss in Seattle means it’s time to concentrate on off-season improvements so they won’t miss out on Super Bowl 50 (no Roman Numerals) next season. Here is what the Packers must do...

It was great that the Packers managed to win a decisive victory against the Carolina Panthers, but perhaps even better was that the Packers ended the game with no serious injuries.  While the Packers win streak is impressive, it’s the health streak that is even more impressive when you consider how banged up the Packers are usually by this point.  While the Packers did manage...

Davante Adams ready to 'show the world' why Aaron Rodgers, Packers believe in him

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Davante Adams isn't allowing himself to be a rookie. Even if he wanted to, easing into the NFL was never an option for the Green Bay Packers' 21-year-old wide receiver. The Packers' plan of elevating Jarrett Boykin to the No. 3 spot on the depth chart was derailed first by performance and then by injury. That left Adams, Green Bay's second-round pick less than...

He also missed Sunday's 38-17 win over the Chicago Bears. The absence of Boykin should mean more opportunities for rookies Davante Adams and Jeff Janis in the Packers' three-receiver sets. Green...

Packers Aftermath: Packers at Lions

There was a time when the Green Bay Packers had the Detroit Lions’ number. It was as regular as the spring thaw and summer road construction. When the Packers played the Lions, it was a win.

Solitary Confinement: Sherman Redefines Shutdown Corner

t’s lonely being the best. Just ask Richard Sherman, who spent the week one game against Green Bay all by himself on the left side of the field. Well, not entirely. He had Jarrett Boykin to keep him company. Boykin was tasked as the sacrificial lamb, lined up against Sherman almost every snap. He ran his assigned routes but never received a pass from Aaron Rodgers. In fact, no...
