Early Super Bowl 51 Odds: Favorites and Longshots

The NFL season is wrapped up, but it’s never too early to start looking forward to next year. For 31 of the 32 teams in the NFL, they’re going to be looking ahead to August, when preseason football will start up once more. For the Broncos, they will enjoy their time in the limelight, but also have to look ahead to next season, where they’ll likely be a much different team without...

A Look at the Packers’ Unrestricted Free Agents

Below you will find a list of the Green Bay Packers’ upcoming unrestricted free agents. These players will be free to sign with any team starting on March 15th. I have assigned a priority level to each player (high, medium, low, or do not attempt to resign).

John Elway is the Anti-Ted Thompson

The Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50 yesterday with a completely different philosophy than the Green Bay Packers in how the team was put together and what the defensive side of the ball looked like. The Packers are well known for Ted Thompson’s draft and develop philosophy and have enjoyed sustained years of success through that.  It’s the correct way to build the foundation...

2016 NFL Draft: Green Bay Packers Draft Board Risers and Fallers

LAQUON TREADWELL – WR – OLE MISS  S.T.A.R. The type of receiver that gives the offense an identity. At 6’3 219, he has the tools and toughness to consistently make impact plays. In a below-average receiver class, Laquon is the cream of the crop. The Packers have a remote chance of drafting him at pick 27. JOEY BOSA – DE/OLB – OHIO STATE Some great college players...

Packers Offseason: Offensive Backfield

The offseason will be officially be upon the NFL in just under 48 hours and that means it’s time to look inward at your own roster to see where you stand. And for the Packers, that stance is still pretty strong. They have a lot of strong spots on the 90-man, but that doesn’t means that these strengths cannot be augmented. But like all teams, they also have weaknesses, and we...

2016 Green Bay Packers Draft Prospects: Top End Tight Ends

One of the highest priorities for the Green Bay Packers this off-season, was improving the lack of production from the Tight End position. However, General Manager Ted Thompson has never drafted a Tight End higher than the 3rd round. In 2008 Thompson took Jermichael Finley in the 3rd and in 2014 grabbed Richard Rodgers in the same round. Rodgers, Justin Perillo, and Andrew Quarless...

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: How To Care About the Super Bowl

This is easy for me to say.  For the second straight season I’m going to be at the Waste Management Open in Phoenix, Arizona pretending the “Big Game” isn’t happening after a devastating playoff loss. You see Brett Favre broke me.  I haven’t really been able to watch the Super Bowls in which the Packers have made the playoffs but not the big game since the 2007 NFC Championship...

Prospecting Potential Pass-catchers: Sterling Shepard

Peaking at the right time. It’s usually a really lame narrative about teams heading into the NFL playoffs but in terms of draft stock, it absolutely applies to the former Oklahoma Sooners wide receiver Sterling Shepard. Shepard drew many eyeballs at the Senior Bowl, where he earned Practice Player of the Week and made some highlight reel catches. Labeled primarily as a slot receiver...

Does Thompson Really have a Free Agency Phobia?

The  Green Bay Packers’ season ended a few weeks ago, but the 2015 NFL season will come to a close this weekend with Super Bowl 50. And with that will begin the 2016 season a month later.  With that will begin the guesswork of who stays and who is shown the door. Teams will start bidding and trying to woo free agents with the promises of championship rings, each touted the missing...

Remembering the curious saga of former Packers receiver Greg Jennings

Jennings went from receiver No. 1 to Public Enemy No. 1 in Green Bay, and it virtually happened overnight. Here’s a look back at how we got there.       Former Green Bay Packer Greg Jennings is among the best wide receivers to ever don the green and gold – you don’t have much ground to stand on if you argue otherwise. Jennings ranks No. 5 all time in receiving touchdowns...

Packers’ 6 Biggest Positions of Need for 2016 Offseason

Below is a list of the top 6 positions of need for the Green Bay Packers coming into the 2016 offseason. This list is fluid and represents the team’s needs right now. This list will vary based upon resignings, retirements, or off-the-field issues. These needs can be filled in the draft or in free agency, but should be treated at some point this off-season in order for the team...

RELAX when it comes to Rodgers’ knee surgery

It’s been a little over twenty-four hours since ESPN’s JasonWilde and Rob Demovsky broke the news that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers underwent surgery on an injured left knee. So instead of finding some half-hearted excuse to duck out of the Pro Bowl later today, he really did have a legitimate reason to sit out. As ESPN reported, it appears Rodgers had a minor–emphasis...

Prospecting Potential Pass-catchers: Josh Doctson

Big plays in the passing game were almost entirely absent from the Packers offensive unit in the 2015 season. In fact, Green Bay only had four passing plays of over 40 yards in the regular season, which is two less than the six that Jordy Nelson accounted for on his own a year prior. Obviously, losing Nelson to an ACL tear in August was a major part in that, but the fact that there...

Packers’ 2015 Pro Bowlers Reflect Team’s Change from 2014

The Green Bay Packers ended a somewhat disappointing regular season with a 10-6 record and their first non-NFC North winning season since 2010. But despite the down season—by Green Bay standards at least—the Packers still had a respectable five players selected to the Pro Bowl after injury and Super Bowl replacements were announced. Linebackers Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers...

Packers should hope for a Peppers return

The Dom Capers defense was exciting to watch this year – often times serving as a crutch or a bailout for a stagnant offense. It was also very young. No member of the Green Bay Packers’ defense is even in their 30s aside from one very integral piece – arguable its most important piece – who turned 36 years old earlier in January. This importance was recognized Monday as...

Explaining Close Packers Playoff Failures

In the wake of yet another heartbreaking Green Bay Packers playoff loss the team and head coach Mike McCarthy have been taken to task on the high number of close playoff losses the franchise has had since 2007.

Prospecting Potential Pass-catchers: Tyler Boyd

If Ted Thompson does truly draft the best player available this coming April, guessing the position, let alone the player that they would take with their first few selections in the NFL Draft, is almost a useless exercise. However, the lack of weapons surrounding Aaron Rodgers is an overwhelmingly obvious weakness and in turn, the focus of this series which will simply highlight...

Packers 2015 Tape Review: Clinton-Dix stout against run

In 2014, many Packers fans became hopeful about the potential of first-round pick HaHa Clinton-Dix becoming the playmaking defensive back they have missed since Charles Woodson departed for his second stint with the Oakland Raiders. Clinton-Dix often displayed his willingness to come up and tackle ball carriers in his rookie season, albeit not always finishing the play. Critics would...
