The Best and the Wurst: Chiefs at Packers

The Best and the Wurst is a weekly series wherein I highlight just a few of the things that stuck out to me in last week’s game.  They are not only or merely the best or wurst players overall, but are merely observations from the game.  Sometimes the considerations aren’t even players at all, but play calls, incidents, or various nonsense.

Selfless Matthews Lifts Defense

The Packers beat two very good teams in the past 8 days, and while quarterback Aaron Rodgers was – as per usual – the No. 1 reason why, it would be a big mistake not to give a ton of credit to the defense. The much-maligned unit set the tone early in both games with its surprisingly physical and even more surprisingly energetic play. Many defensive players deserve credit....

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.

Packers: Why Green Bay Should Give Mike Daniels an Extension

The Green Bay Packers have been consistently good over the past decade for two big reasons: they draft good players and then re-sign them to long-term contracts. It really sounds very simple. But, trust me, it’s hard to do. Yet, Packers general manager Ted Thompson has had great success with his team-building philosophy, he just needs to keep applying the same methods, which would...

Green Bay Packers should extend Mike Daniels sooner rather than later

Since the Green Bay Packers moved to a 3-4 defense in 2008, they’ve had some very impactful players and a few elite ones. Some players have had game-changing performances (see: Clay Matthews forced fumble in Super Bowl XLV) and some have displayed wondrous athleticism. However, none have brought to the table what Mike Daniels has brought to the defense since he arrived in 2012...

How Will the Packers’ Run Defense Perform in 2015?

It was a tale of two halves for the Green Bay Packers in terms of its run defense last season, and it may be the biggest question facing the team heading into the 2015 season. The Packers finished 20th overall in the NFL allowing 4.3 yards per carry. They were often embarrassing in the first half of the year allowing 4.8 yards per carry and really tightened it up in the second half...

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...

The Green Bay Packers Pass Rush is Still a Major Question Mark

In terms of pass rush effectiveness, last season was sort of a revelation for the Green Bay Packers. They didn’t have an amazing pass rush by any means, but considering how dreadful they were in that area the three seasons before last, it felt like they were elite. The Packers ranked 13th in the NFL in overall pass rush by Pro Football Focus for the 2014 season. While that does...

He recorded 11.5 sacks to lead his conference and tied the school record for career sacks with 21. A small-school prospect with upside, he can potentially bring some skills as a defensive end in a -4 scheme. Mostly unknown, he was off the radar for...
