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 [...]
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 [...]
“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 [...]
Everyone knew the Green Bay Packers needed to use the 2013 NFL Draft to get better along the defensive line.
The Packers definitely have some talent at that spot, some of it high-end (B.J. Raji). But there was still something missing. There wasn’t that consistently fearsome presence off the edge.
There just might be now.
With the 26th [...]
It’s here. It’s finally here!
We sit just 18 hours away from the Super Bowl of the NFL offseason. That’s right – it’s just about time for the NFL Draft.
(Sorry, I just can’t help myself.)
For fans of our beloved Green Bay Packers, what happens tonight through Saturday is of particular importance. As we know, Ted [...]
If you were wondering when – or, maybe, if – we would ever see Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre standing side-by-side again, you got your answer Saturday night.
In a rather surprising turn of events, the pair came together as presenters at the NFL Honors awards show in New Orleans. Outside of four post-game meetings, by [...]
I promised you a second part of our early offseason primer for the Green Bay Packers and dammit, that’s what you’re going to get.
Part one, for those who missed it (shame on you if you are one such person), can be found here. In part two, we’re talking contracts, the draft and free agency, [...]
The 2012 season is over for the Green Bay Packers. And, yes, many are still trying to get over the San Francisco defeat and trying not to think of what could’ve been.
But, as we all know, the NFL never stops. That means it’s time to begin piecing together what the 2013 edition of the Packers [...]
I don’t know about you, dear readers, but for me, this offseason has brought a blissful absence from football. The Packers’ 13th world championship was so surprising, and so satisfying, I’ve been happy to let the prospect of the 2011 NFL season stay far away from the front of my mind. After the emotional grind [...]
If you live in Wisconsin this week, these are wonderful times. The Packers are world champions for the 13th time. The three Lombardi Trophies proudly displayed in the final room of the Packers Hall of Fame are about to get a new friend. (Side note: We love the spotlights on the trophies, the music playing [...]
