Packers Most Underrated Player

T.J. Lang made headlines earlier in the season for getting fined  for an altercation with Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright. The veteran guard should be making headlines for his play on the field. The former Eastern Michigan star has quietly developed into one of the best interior offensive linemen in the league. While it’s true he’s not even the best guard on his own team, that...

Stars Not Shining For Packers

My top 12 Packers in 2014 were Aaron Rodgers, Josh Sitton, Jordy Nelson, Clay Matthews, Randall Cobb, Mike Daniels, Eddie Lacy, Julius Peppers, T.J.

Sitton’s Sackless Streak Ends

Packers fans saw something last Sunday they hadn’t seen for over two years (And no, it wasn’t a good punt from Tim Masthay – it just seems that long). They saw left guard Josh Sitton give up a sack to San Diego defensive lineman Corey Liuget. The rare moment occurred early in the fourth quarter. Here’s the play. Take a good look because it might not happen again for another...

Packers 2015 Preview: Why the Green Bay O-Line is Among NFL’s Best

Since the day that Mike McCarthy became the head coach of the Green Bay Packers back in 2006, he said he wanted to play a physical brand of football. Only, until recently, the Packers didn’t have the horses up front to make it happen. But, with some smart draft choices and solid development, McCarthy’s offensive line is now one of NFL’s elite. And one reason why McCarthy has...

Bet on the Packers to Win the Super Bowl Next Season

There, I said it. Way too soon, of course, as free agency and the draft are still down the road. Frankly, though, other than the Packers retaining Randall Cobb, I don’t think it matters much. If we go under the assumption that the Packers can sign Cobb before he hits the free agent market, (and I think they will), the team as constituted is good enough to win it all next year...
