The 5 Most Versatile Packers

When building a roster, the Packers have it a lot better than most teams. Despite having superior talent than a majority of the NFL, they also have the versatility that opponents only dream of. With so many players able to play all over the field in numerous roles, that gives Mike McCarthy and his staff a chance to keep some of the more developmental players on the roster, allowing...

Packers 2015 Preview: Green Bay Defensive has Potential for Greatness

The Green Bay Packers have been rebuilding and revamping their defense since the disastrous 2011 season, in which they had one of the worst defenses in NFL history. And while the reclamation project is not completed, it could take a huge step forward if a player or two on the Packers’ defensive front can take a big leap forward in 2015. Of course when B.J. Raji was selected with...

Packers D-line Dilemma – Draft Choice vs Free Agent

The Green Bay Packers are hoping for a major step-up this season with their defense. There will be make-overs in the secondary as well as inside linebacker. But it will be up to the Packers defensive line to make the biggest jump this year in order to earn a trip to Super Bowl 50. The experts argue that the lines on both offense and defense dictate the game. The Packers have developed...

Green Bay Packers defensive starting lineup for week one

Since winning Super Bowl XLV four years ago, the Green Bay Packers have struggled to field a defense that could equal what the Super Bowl winning squad did, which was keep pace with the lethal Aaron Rodgers-led offense. General Manager Ted Thompson began the defensive overhaul after the 2011 season that saw a 15-1 season foiled by a brutal defense. Thompson’s master plan is almost...

Who is in Danger of Losing Their Roster Spot

Now that the Draft is finished, it comes time to look at the Green Bay roster as it stands right now. If you factor in the eight picks and the one or two undrafted guys that always make the team, that ends up leaving some guys out in the cold. There are five guys who are now sleeping a little less easier now that the draft is done. It may be their last chance to make this team, and...

Will any of these Packers D-linemen Rise Above JAG Status?

Even if the Green Bay Packers re-sign B.J. Raji and Letroy Guion, they still could use help on the defensive line. That help could come via the draft, a Ted Thompson free-agent signing or Datone Jones finally living up to his first-round draft position. Or maybe it could come from a JAG currently on the Packers’ defensive line. “JAG” is a (somewhat snarky) term for “Just...

2014 Packers Position Group Analysis: Defensive Line

Packers defensive line:  While we’re all clamoring for the Packers to finally fix their gaping hole at inside linebacker through the draft or free agency, let’s not forget that the defensive line needs some work, too. Potentially, a lot of work. When opposing teams decided to come at the Packers with a power-running attack in 2014, Green Bay’s smallish defensive front often...

The big news coming out of Green Bay will be Aaron Rodgers’ calf injury until the Packers are done with the playoffs, whether that is after Sunday or the Super Bowl.  While how effective Aaron Rodgers can be against the vaunted Seattle defense will probably be the biggest deciding factor on who wins the game, it should be pointed out that the Packers, who always seem to be star...

5 Reasons why the Packers will beat the Patriots (and 1 reason they might not)

The main reason I write these 5 reasons posts is to mock, ridicule and tear down the Packers’ weekly opponent and/or their fanbase. Since the Packers play the Vikings, Bears and Lions six times each season, I usually have plenty of material to work with. But how am I supposed to make fun of the Patriots? They’re a model NFL franchise, in the same class of the Packers. Tearing...

Packers’ 2014 Draft Class Paying Early Dividends

As I sat in the Lambeau Field bleachers and watched the Panthers game, I couldn’t help but to think of how well the 2014 draft class is panning out.  Now there are certainly disappointments.  It’s possible (maybe even likely) that Khyri Thornton Carl Bradford and Demetri Goodson can’t play.  Jared Abbrederis was lost for the season with an ACL injury.  Other than that though...

And if the Green Bay Packers want to be a great team they need to win games like the one they will face on Sunday when they travel to south beach to take on the Miami Dolphins. Miami, which comes into the game at 2-2, is a talented but inconsistent team that is more then capable of pulling the upset over the 3-2 Packers, who...
