5 Packer Veterans Who Could be on the Roster Bubble

  During the next couple of months the Packers will have to whittle down their roster from the 90 players they currently have to just 53. The Packers lost a few players to free agency, but they also signed free agents, Julius Peppers and Letroy Guion, selected 9 players in May’s draft, have numerous players coming back from injury, and they also have a penchant for keeping a few...

Power Ranking the Packers’ Defensive Linemen

  When discussing the Packers’ defensive shortcomings, most fans will immediately point to safety as the area the Packers need to improve on this season, and that may be true, but defensive line play is a close second. In 2013, the Packers ranked 25th in the league in run defense and were often manhandled by opposing offensive linemen. And with the exception of Mike Daniels, all...

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Defensive Line Summer Battle

Admittedly it’s arguable that this belongs higher on the list than number 5.  67% of last year’s starters on the defensive line are no longer on the team.  Two open starting spots in one position group could possibly push this higher on the list.  The reason that I don’t view it as highly is largely because of how often the Packers play their nickel defense (well over 50...

The Packers’ Defensive Improvement Needs to Start Up Front

Since winning Super Bowl XLV with the 5th ranked defense in the NFL, the Packer’s defense has been on the decline. In 2011 they had the 32nd ranked defense, the worst in the NFL.  2012 and 2013 were slight improvements, ranking 11th and 26th respectively. So what is the reason for this precipitous decline? Certainly injuries have played a part. Few teams have had as many key injuries...

How to Manage Expectations for Packers Rookies

I’ve seen a lot of things I haven’t liked over the last 12 months that have been said about some young Green Bay Packers players.  Specifically I haven’t enjoyed the way that Datone Jones and Jerel Worthy have been unfairly labeled as busts.  I’ve been concerned about Davante Adams being pimped as a possibly OROY candidate.  I was proved right last season when I proclaimed...

Kareem Martin out of UNC is a scheme diverse player that will be able to excel in either 3-4 or 4-3 and is projected to go somewhere between rounds two and three.

Heading into the season the Green Bay Packers defensive line looked to be a strength. Through the first eight weeks of the season they were. The Packers defense only had one running back go over 100 yards on them (Alfred Morris). The next eight weeks they allowed seven, one hundred yard rushers, not to mention the 91 yard game Toby Gerhart had on eight carries. The final eight weeks...
