ALLGBP.com Says Farewell, Hello Again

It’s hard to believe it’s been six full years since I decided to start a Packers web site. Back in February of 2009, at the graphically challenged “Jersey Al’s Packers Blog,” I published my first article bidding farewell to Brett Favre. (It’s a pretty interesting read now,  knowing what has transpired after that date). It was Februry 11th, 2009, ten days after the...

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

I’ve read a lot of about Aaron Rodgers and “trust” during the last few weeks of this painfully long and more-boring-than-usual Green Bay Packers offseason. Here’s a story about Rodgers trusting Davante Adams more. Here’s a story about what Jeff Janis has to do to gain Rodgers’ trust. Here’s one on what Janis has to do during practice to win the QB’s trust. I’m...

Cory’s Corner: It all starts and ends up front for the Packers

Mike McCarthy isn’t big on lists and comparing one generation to another. Remember this: “This offensive line, in my opinion, in my time here, has the chance to be the best offensive line that we’ve had.” That was a proud and boastful McCarthy on July 25, 2014 — one day before starting his ninth training camp. After the Packers re-signed one of the game’s most expensive...

Goodson Paying Early Dividends

Last year, the Green Bay Packers had some difficult decisions to make when final roster cutdowns were due.  Cornerback was a position of particular interest, as the team had sixth rounder Demetri Goodson in the mix and fighting for one of the last roster spots with undrafted free agent Jumal Rolle.  Many though Rolle had a better preseason and would offer more to the defense, but...

Rodgers and Favre at 31 – Same Age But Different Results

CBS Sports recently had an interesting feature predicting the number of wins for each of the NFL teams this year including the Green Bay Packers. Per Bovada Sports Book the over/under for the Packers season is 11 wins. The CBS Sports experts chose the ‘over’ for the Packers – meaning that their expectation is for 12-16 wins. The Packers have only won as many as 12 games in...

2016 Super Bowl Odds – Packers Trail only the Seahawks

The Packers completed the second of two Organized Team Activities (OTAs) sessions this past week, with a plethora of eager new faces traversing the field, looking to get noticed. The focus for the coaching staff is now solely on putting together a 53-man roster that will compete for a chance to play in the next Super Bowl. Almost five months have passed since the Packers flaming...

Packing the Stats: The Packers Have Traded Deep Passes for Run Plays

Since Aaron Rodgers took over the reigns from Brett Favre in 2008 the Packers have been known as a pass-first team. Back in 2008 the NFL was still a fairly balanced league with an average 52/48 split in pass to run calls. The Packers were one of the teams that saw they could exploit defenses through the air much easier than they could by keeping a more balanced mix of run and pass...

Packers Expiring Contracts: Trust Ted

The Green Bay Packers currently have 22 players under contract whose contracts expire after this season.  Many of those players are undrafted free agents on the usual one-year deals, but there are a few big names that will become the center of contract extension discussions very soon.  Among those are defensive lineman Mike Daniels, cornerback Casey Hayward, safety Sean Richardson...

Mike McCarthy: the Evolving Coach Not Afraid of Change and Risk

We’ve all heard the adage that the NFL stands for “Not For Long.” Either you keep up and adapt, or you find a new line of work. Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has received plenty of criticism for hanging onto loyalties and not making the change when he probably should have. The most notable examples include sticking with defensive coordinator Dom Capers and special...

Cory’s Corner: Jared Abbrederis has his work cut out for him

Jared Abbrederis came to the Packers with plenty of promise last year. Then July 30 happened. That’s when he tore his ACL in practice, which caused the Wisconsin standout receiver to miss his first pro season. “You just have to look to the positives, try to find positives,” Abbrederis said last year after getting informed of the bad news. “I’m just ready to get to work...

There’s more to Green Bay Packers’ early-season struggles than playing tough teams

In my Surviving Sunday column this week, I opined that one of the reasons the Green Bay Packers have started slow the last three seasons is a bland and vanilla early-season scheme on offense. In the comments section, marpag disagreed. marpag said the Packers have started slow because they’ve played really good teams right out of the gate. “…if you ask me, blaming the loses...

How Much Did The Packers Lose By Drafting Brett Hundley?

“Drafting Brett Hundley was a waste” I do find it kind of funny that Packers fans bemoan every draft when Ted Thompson picks someone who no one has ever heard of (I mean who the hell is Jordy Nelson?) but they seemed even more incensed when Thompson traded up to select UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley, who presumably everyone knew about.  A multitude of arguments were raised...

Who will be the Packers Surprise Starter in 2015?

Training camp for the Green Bay Packers will open next month and there will be plenty of competition for roster spots. As is the case for most serious Super Bowl contenders, the number of new starters certainly will be small. Barring injury the primary training camp battle for a starting position will primarily focus on the defensive side of the ball. But there are other starting...

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

It was 26 years ago on Friday that Bob Harlan was elected as president of the Green Bay Packers. Under Harlan, the Packers went from a laughingstock to one of the most successful franchises in all of sports. Thanks to people like Mike Holmgren, Reggie White and Brett Favre, the Packers became “cool” again. Harlan has even played a role in building today’s team. Before retiring...

Cory’s Corner: College spread offenses are killing the NFL QB

Packers fans, I really hope you appreciate what you have. And no, this isn’t another one of those Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers success stories. But this is about the quarterback position. I think we can all agree that Rodgers is the class of the NFL quarterback. His memory, instincts, accuracy and arm strength are uncanny. Following Rodgers, there’s Tom Brady, Peyton Manning...

McCarthy Embraces New Role & Changes

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy declared, shortly after the 2014 season was over, that he would relinquish the play calling duties that he’s held since arriving in Green Bay and instead focus more on the other facets of the game on Sunday’s. We’ve known this for some time and there was speculation as to how long it would last or if it would actually happen at all...

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...

Packers OTA’s: News and Notes

The Green Bay Packers continued spring OTA’s on Tuesday and saw a few players return to action while a few others remained out.  Here are some notes from the day: – Our own Adam Czech observed that nose tackle B.J.

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.

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...
