Green Bay Packers chances of winning the NFC North could hinge on this question

Thank goodness, football is here. All week, training camps open around the NFL, as teams begin the journey toward Super Bowl XLVIX in Glendale, Arizona. Every team in the league has questions that need to be answered, as no one has a clear and easy road map to the Promised Land. But the difference between being a contender and an also-ran usually comes down to one key issue. So as...

We haven’t seen any for the Packers that really caught our eye, until today. Here’s a sharp new redesigned logo for the Packers that we found on imgur, which features the state of Wisconsin prominently. Check it out...

Camp preview: Linebackers

The Packers made noise this offseason by signing a big name free agent and moving him to a position that he has never played in his lengthy career. Julius Peppers will play outside linebacker opposite Clay Matthews this season, and while he will line up on multiple occasions in a defensive end position he will also be asked to drop back in coverage, something he’s never been asked...

Camp preview: Defensive Line

The Packers have the most ground to make up on the defensive side of the ball, that’s no secret. In a conference that boasts multiple stingy and hard hitting defenses (mostly from the NFC West), the Packers must improve in order to keep up with the best in the league. With Aaron Rodgers and all his offensive weapons, the one ingredient from being a Super Bowl caliber team starts...

Cory’s Corner: Packers’ 2014 D begins and ends with Ragi

With the signing of Julius Peppers, B.J. Raji could have a snice year. I gave B.J. Raji a lot of grief last year. After setting career lows in total tackles (12) and tallying no sacks for the second straight season, it was completely warranted. Raji’s argument was that he barely played his true position as a bona fide nose tackle. He dabbled in playing end and also spent time as...

The Dynamic Duo Of the Packers

There is nothing that should excite Green Bay Packers fans as training camp approaches more than Aaron Rodgers and Eddie Lacy playing a full season together. They only played in six games together last year due to injuries for both. They went 5-1 in those games with the only loss being the first game of the season at San Francisco, averaged 29 points per games and averaged 404 yards...

Packers' look to get back to elite status as they land at No. 5 in PFT's power rankings

The Green Bay Packers took a good look at themselves in the mirror this offseason and surmised that the team needed to get tougher. After coming off a collarbone injury, quarterback Aaron Rodgers is locked and loaded for another run at a title. On offense, tight end and center are the only positions that have question marks, but J.C. Tretter is thought to have the upper hand...

Centers Of Attention

JC Tretter will enter training cap as the starting center, but holding onto that spot won’t be easy. In fact, I wouldn’t be all that surprised to see the second-year man from Cornell on the bench when the Packers open the regular season at Seattle. That’s because fifth-round pick Corey Linsley won’t be easy to […]

Mike McCarthy jokes ‘let’s bomb Chicago’ before boarding WW2 B-17 bomber

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy’s grandfather-in-law, Bob Schneider, was a bombardier in the Second World War flying in the famous B-17 Flying Fortresses.  The Flying Fortresses were used by the United States Army Air Force to take out German industrial bases across Hitler’s Europe. To honor the 96-year old Schneider, members of the McCarthy family took a ride in...

Favre says he's not afraid of being booed at Lambeau

It had been rumored that former Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre was staying away from Lambeau Field for fear of being booed by his old fans. Favre’s exit from Green Bay was less than memorable. He was eventually shunned by his team for the younger Aaron Rodgers and eventually ended up playing for their arch rivals Minnesota Vikings. The news of Favre’s fear came from his long...

Well according to ESPN 1000, Favre doesn’t care if he is booed. “I’ve heard that […] The post Brett Favre says “He is not worried about getting...

Packers fan asks A.J. Hawk to tackle him, gets exactly what he wanted.

From taking their shirts off and painting their chests in sub-zero temperatures to wearing ridiculous enormous foam cheese hats, Packers fans are some of the most passionate and borderline crazy fans in all of...

Packers Xs and Os: What We Might See From McCarthy’s Up-Tempo Offense (Part 1)

Will Aaron Rodgers be leading an up-tempo or no huddle offense in 2014? (Photo credit: Jeff Hanisch/USA Today). This off season, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy mentioned two philosophical adjustments he would like to see his offense implement this year: 1) run a faster up-tempo game plan with 75 plays per game, and 2) have three-down players on the field to limit the...

Packers remain a top-five team, despite recent disappointments

The Packers have Aaron Rodgers. That’s good enough to put them at the top of the league. Whether the rest of the team is good enough to close the deal remains to be seen. The defense has a few new pieces, and the offense has lost some parts. But with Rodgers on the roster, the Packers will be good enough to win the NFC North and make a run deep into the postseason.
