Wrapping up the first week of free agency for the Packers: Non-Peppers edition

The point of this post is to catch up on all the free agency news involving the Green Bay Packers that doesn’t include Julius Peppers.

I kept thinking it’d be easy enough to do, but as soon as I thought that, MORE news involving the Packers popped up (dang, this team has been busy). So this [...]

He did WHAT?!?! Thompson stuns Packer Nation, signs Peppers

True story: I started writing a post late Friday night. In it, I focused on which side was right in the debate over how Ted Thompson handles free agency.

I just needed to add a few more thoughts to it and it would be ready to go sometime Saturday afternoon.

You’ll never read it now, of course, [...]

Think the Packers can't keep up with Seattle and San Francisco? Think again

Lately there has been a lot of hand-wringing amongst Green Bay Packers fans. Another early playoff exit can do that to a fanbase.

Fans are mad about the injuries that seem to plague the team every year, the continued employment of defensive coordinator Dom Capers and some are even beginning to wonder just how good a [...]

A look at where the Packers stand, position-by-position, as the offseason begins: Part Three

Alright, this is it.

It’s time for the final installment of our position-by-position look at where the Green Bay Packers stand right now. And in this final chapter, we’re in for some rough sledding. The positions covered here are in considerable flux at best and disasters at worst. So if you’re into that sort of thing, [...]

A look at where the Packers stand, position-by-position, as the offseason begins: Part Two

Okay, gang, we promised you part two and here it is. Things were certainly rosy with regards to part one – the Green Bay Packers are looking good at quarterback, running back and offensive line. It gets a little choppier as we progress in part two, but overall, the outlook for the positions covered here [...]

A look at where the Packers stand, position-by-position, as the offseason begins

Now that we’ve all had a minute to digest the loss to San Francisco, it’s time to delve in to some offseason talk.

Oh, you thought we already did with our post after the Niners game? No, no, that was just us testing the waters – wading in up to our ankles, if you will. We’re [...]

San Fran ends Green Bay's season - again. So where do we go from here?

(Before we begin: Apologies for not writing more. Hopefully you’ve been following us on Twitter or listening to our podcasts over at the Packers Talk Radio Network.)

So, here we are – again.

Another season of Green Bay Packers football was brought to a disappointing end at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers, this time a [...]

Packers close ‘13 draft going heavy at receiver, linebacker

With their final five picks of the 2013 NFL Draft, the Green Bay Packers opted for a fairly simple approach.

Reinforce the front seven and add depth at wide receiver. No, literally, that was it.

A defensive tackle, two linebackers and two wideouts comprised the rest of Green Bay’s draft Saturday.

We’ll discuss these picks in the order [...]

Trade up for Franklin highlight for Green Bay early Saturday

As I type this, the draft is still going on. We’re well into round six, in fact.

But with the Green Bay Packers having so many picks – 10 in all at the start – on the final day of the draft, it seemed like a good time to check in with an early report on [...]

Lacy selection the highlight in a day of trading back

“No running backs this weekend, folks.”

Who wrote that just a couple of days ago? Who would say such a thing?

Well, that would be me.

In a move that a lot of Green Bay Packers fans wanted, but one yours truly did not expect at all, the Packers selected Alabama running back Eddie Lacy with the 29th [...]
