Green Bay Packers Positional Spending

During a time when there is not much Green Bay Packers news to write about I thought it would be interesting to break down the team’s salary cap. Here’s what the Packers will be spending by position this season in comparison to the rest of the NFL. Quarterback: $20.38 million (5th) Running Back: $3.2 million (31st) Wide Receiver: $12.79 million (21st) Tight End: $3.37 million...

Ted Thompon’s 2nd best draft pick for the Green Bay Packers is ____________

There is very little debate that Aaron Rodgers is Ted Thompson’s best draft pick during his 10 years as general manager of the Green Bay Packers. If Thompson would have passed on Rodgers because the Packers didn’t need a quarterback, the recent history of the Packers would have been quite different. But who is Thompson’s second-best draft choice? Luckily, if you’re a Packers...

Never Too Early To Plan Ahead

The Green Bay Packers’ offensive line is set through 2016, but then things figure to get very interesting. As of now, left tackle David Bakhtiari, left guard Josh Sitton and right guard T.J. Lang are scheduled to become free agents after that season. It’s highly unlikely all three will be re-signed. So who’s the most likely to go? Well, let’s start with who’s the most...

NFL Draft: 5 Best 4th-Round Picks of the Past Decade

Part four of a nine-part series looking at the best NFL draft picks of the past decade brings us to the fourth round, which is typically a spot where teams still find solid talent. These are players who were supposed to be picked higher—according to “experts,” anyway—but for whatever reason fell. Fourth-rounders are also guys who may have had loads of talent but played...

Looking back at the 2008 Green Bay Packers Draft

In the 2007 season, despite a lack of big impact from the Draft Class, the Green Bay Packers defied expectations, exploding offensively to obtain a 13-3 record and a first round bye in the playoffs. After defeating Seattle behind a dominant Ryan Grant performance, the Packers fell one interception short of the Super Bowl, losing to the Giants in overtime 23-20 in what would be the...

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...

T.J. Lang 2014 Report Card – Packers Player Grades

Packers OL T.J. Lang1) Introduction: T.J. Lang is perhaps one of the most unknown and under-appreciated offensive linemen in the NFL when using his performance as the metric. With this being his second season as the starting right guard (he previously started at left guard from 2011-2012), it was his best season as a professional. He has a vicious mean streak and likes to maul...

Why the NFL playoffs were like 'Final Destination' movies

Throughout the NFL playoffs, we at FOX had a little fun with teams ending their seasons a week earlier than they’d like. Called Loser Island, it was good for a chuckle every time a new team hit the beach. But there was an undeniable darker side to the NFC half of the postseason bracket, not unlike a horror movie – complete with the requisite sequels and let’s-hide-behind-the...

Green Bay Packers “Did not Finish”

The hangover from the capitulation suffered by Green Bay Packers in the playoff game with the Seattle Seahawks might last some time. Just over three minutes away from a sixth Superbowl appearance and in ebullient mood, Green Bay somehow contrived to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. At 19-14, tight end Brandon Bostick missed a Seahawks onside kick. The ball bounced off his...

Meet the 2015 Packer Pro Bowlers

While there is no ‘real’ game of NFL football being played on Sunday, there is still the Pro Bowl.

So let’s take a second to have a look into the reasons these players were selected. Aaron Rodgers led all players in fan voting this year, and was selected...

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...
