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.

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 [...]

So, should we continue talking about the 2013 season? Sure, why not!

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.

Right. Now.

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, [...]

So, should we talk about the 2013 season already? Yeah, we probably should

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 [...]

Big Play Tra inks extension - but what will the fallout be?

Green Bay Packers fans, you can rest easy.
