Packers Xs and Os: the Unheralded Nose Tackle is the Key to Dominance

The nose tackle position for the Green Bay Packers appears to be one of depth and strength as the 2015 season approaches. Perhaps, it could be the best they’ve had since the 2010 season when B.J Raji was dominant and Ryan Pickett was versatile along the line. This off season, Raji is returning to health by rebuilding his body through yoga after rupturing his biceps in the 2014...

Cory’s Corner: Competition will be good for Tim Masthay

Nothing says how much a player will keep his job like a little competition. That’s exactly what happened when the Packers signed kicker Giorgio Tavecchio in 2013 to put some needed motivation in front of a struggling Mason Crosby. Last season, punter Tim Masthay had one of his worst seasons as a Packer. Masthay, who’s entering his sixth season, had the highest touchback percentage...

5 Takeaways from Packers OTAs so far

The Green Bay Packers have completed three days of OTAs so far. Based on what we’ve learned during these three days, we can make the following conclusions about the 2015 version of the Packers: Absolutely nothing. That’s right, nothing. Zip. Zero. Nadda. Anyone who tries to make grand claims after OTAs is just desperate for attention. But we can still learn a thing or two during...

Big Man, Small Effect: How Important is a Nose Tackle?

Traditional thought has always said that the lynchpin of a successful 3-4 defense like the Packers run is a giant nose tackle who can contain the pocket against a double team and a versatile outside linebacker who can rush the passer.  Ted Thompson definitely followed that philosophy to a T the very first year that the Packers implemented the 3-4 defense by drafting a nose tackle...

Packers Number Two Quarterback Tolzien Ready If Needed

The second string quarterback for the Green Bay Packers is much like your local medical rescue squad: you want the best talent there is but hope and pray that you never need them. The Packers made a subtle but bold move this off-season when they replaced their primary backup quarterback. Gone is the security blanket provided by Matt Flynn. Enter last year’s number three QB Scott...

Surviving Sunday: Packers News, Notes and Links for the Football Deprived

As a Packers fan, do you want to see this Adrian Peterson drama carry over into training camp and the regular season? Or would you rather see the Vikings cut or trade Peterson? We’ve seen firsthand in Green Bay how a superstar player going off the rails can cause a distraction and impact the entire team. It’d be nice to see Peterson do that in Minnesota, but as a Packers fan...

Cory’s Corner: Does coaching really matter?

This has truly been the year of the coach in sports. First it was Jim Harbaugh. The well-known ‘berserker’ made the word obnoxious seem tame. And after a career overall record of 49-22-1 in four years, which included one Super Bowl appearance, the San Francisco 49ers decided to roll up the worn-out welcome mat. Then there was Tom Thibodeau. The oft-criticized Chicago Bulls coach...

Packers Open OTA’s – Middle Linebackers Are. . .

The Green Bay Packers took to Clarke Hinkle Field on Thursday for the first of three OTA sessions.  It gave fans and media their first look at some of the rookie class of 2015 as well as saw the return of a few faces that were missing last year in that of receiver Jared Abbrederis and defensive lineman B.J. Raji.  Rookie quarterback Brett Hundley and receiver Ty Montgomery were...

Packers Biggest Upgrade Comes from Within

Much has been written about the many off-season successes that the Green Bay Packers have manufactured for themselves. Immediately after the stinging playoff defeat in Seattle the team began planning for a Super Bowl run in 2015. First it was out with the old. Cutting ties with under-performing veterans AJ Hawk, Brad Jones, Brandon Bostick as well as Jarrett Bush (apparently). Then...

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...

Packers 2015 Season Draws Nearer

The Green Bay Packers begin spring organized team activities (OTA’s) tomorrow and in just a few days, it will be June which means training camp will then be “next month”, in July.  While this isn’t the official training camp, these practices are vital for teams as they carry on through the offseason and into preseason.  This is where the installation of the offensive and...

Packers Xs and Os: Sean Richardson as a Substitution Package Linebacker

When Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson matched the Oakland Raiders’ 1 year/$2.55 million offer to restricted free agent safety Sean Richardson, speculation as to why ran rampant. With Morgan Burnett, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, and Micah Hyde being the first three safeties on the roster, the contract seemed expensive for a backup. This was even before Thompson drafted Damarious...

Cory’s Corner: Aaron Rodgers will be the Bear tamer again

The moment the schedules came out, Aaron Rodgers must’ve practiced his Grinch smile. The Packers open the season with the Bears. This is the same Bears team that got swallowed by Green Bay 93-31 in two games last year. Yeah, Chicago has a new coach with a new vision, the grumpy Brandon Marshall is gone and Matt Forte is still the featured back. But none of those things matter when...

Around the NFC North: 3 non-Packers ready to make the leap

In a perfect world, a handful of second-year players on the Green Bay Packers roster will follow-up promising rookie seasons by establishing themselves as good to great players in 2015. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Davante Adams and Cory Linsley are three Packers poised to make that transition. But what about the rest of the NFC North? Unfortunately, the Packers aren’t the only team with...

The Catch-22 of A Superstar Quarterback

The Holy Grail for any GM and front office is to find the “mythical” franchise quarterback.  Whether it’s by draft or trade, finding a quarterback that can be the face of a franchise is the top priority of every team save the ones that already have one, and there aren’t many out there that can say they have one.  A GM can essentially make a name for himself just by finding...

The Packers Have an Unofficial Retired Number? Time to Make it Official

Please take time on this Memorial Day to stop your daily lives to remember the fallen service men and women of the United States.  We are the great nation we are because of their sacrifice. As a die-hard Packers fan perhaps you are probably aware of the Green Bay Packers one and only “Unofficial Retired Number”.  Then again perhaps you’re not. On July 18, 2015 Brett Favre...

Surviving Sunday: Packers News, Notes and Links for the Football Deprived

When ya’ll fire up the grill this Memorial Day weekend, what will you be cooking? Here’s my ideal Memorial Day meal: Steak, preferably T-bone or tenderloin, from beef raised on my in-laws family farm in Ringle, Wis. I cook my steak slowly over low heat on a charcoal grill. Get that propane stuff outta here. I like my steak medium rare or rare. If you listen closely, you can...

Cory’s Corner: No Johnny Manziel could open door for Roger Goodell

I understand what the Browns are thinking. They are trying to protect their quarterback that has lived in a fishbowl dating back to his days as a superstar at Texas A&M. So they requested to not be on the HBO reality show “Hard Knocks.” But just because the cameras won’t be humming, and the microphones won’t be hot doesn’t mean Johnny won’t be Johnny. The attention...

Packers Add Another Undrafted Athletic Star

Earlier this week, the Green Bay Packers added another undrafted free agent to add to their roster just ahead of May organized team activities.  Cornerback Travis Manning of Northwest Missouri State, a Division II school, is the latest of a long line of undrafted rookies to join the Packers.  The narrative is old by now as far as the Packers are concerned.  Every season there...

It is Step-Up Time for Packers Defense

The draft-and-develop Green Bay Packers have surely produced as a team. Year-in and year-out they are Super Bowl contenders and this year will be no different. Only the Seattle Seahawks have better betting odds to win it all than the Packers. Fortunately the Packers boast a potent offense largely responsible for such prolonged success. Looking at the Packers game-changers there are...

James Starks Should be Supplanted as the Packers’ Number Two Running Back

James Starks has been at times a good to very good running back for the Green Bay Packers over his career. He has also been at times an indecisive and ineffective runner who hesitates at the line and second-guesses which hole to go through or where to cut. Starks has never shown an ability to carry the majority of the starting load, but has shown flashes of potential at various...

Hard Knocks and the Green Bay Packers

So here we are in mid-May and another Green Bay Packers offseason so why not do one of those “made for the offseason” posts?  After all, not much is happening in the NFL unless you care about the air pressure in footballs or the fact that extra point tries will now take place from the 15-yard line. As we draw nearer to this year’s training camps, one of the questions on the...

Packers Xs and Os: The Randall and Rollins “Mirror” Defense

When Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson selected defensive backs Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins with his first two picks in the 2015 draft, fans began to immediately wonder if they were safeties or cornerbacks. Discussions quickly popped up that they would play cornerback. Then slot cornerback. Then back to safety. Then as hybrid cover players. And so on. So, which...

Cory’s Corner: This is Andrew Quarless’ year to show he belongs

The Packers’ tight ends are just a bunch of guys. Nobody really jumps off the page. They’re adequate, but not dynamic. Which brings me to Andrew Quarless. He will be entering his sixth season this year, but most importantly it’s a contract year for the Penn State standout picked in the fifth round. He’s only started in 26 of 55 games and has only caught six touchdowns in...
