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 [...]
Chris and Adam have weighed in with their preseason predictions, and a few hours before the Vikings and Saints kick off from the Superdome, I’ll add mine, too:
We’ve covered the two teams that finished beneath the Green Bay Packers in the NFC North last season.
To close it out, let’s now talk about the offseason of the team the Packers are chasing for the division title: the Minnesota Vikings, back-to-back winners of the North.
Enjoy – or something like that.
Where they were [...]
As promised, we’re back with part two: A look at the Chicago Bears.
Where they were heading into the offseason: The trade for Jay Cutler gave some Bears fans hope 2009 would be a good season. Not so much. Cutler was his typical up-and-down self, only this time there were more downs and ups (26 [...]
Last summer, we ran a three-part “Know Your Enemy” series in which we broke down the respective offseasons of the other three NFC North teams.
That turned out well enough, so we’ve decided to do it again. This time, though, we’re going about it differently. Instead of spreading the posts out over a few weeks, we’re [...]
The first part of our look at the defensive battles – part three of our series in all, if you’re keeping score – focused solely on the secondary. Makes sense as it’s the one glaring area of concern on this team as it prepares to begin camp in just one day – holy @$*#!
Truth be [...]
Enough about the pretty boys on the offense.
It’s time to shine the spotlight on the tough guys – the defenders.
The Packers have a couple of major battles going on with their defense – none bigger than one in the secondary. And it’s there that we begin part three of our series:
Type of battle: Starting [...]
We went a different way with part one, focusing on the offensive line first.
We’ll let the skill position players get their due this time around, though, as we make them the focus of part two.
Not bad for a short intro, huh?
Type of battle: No. 3 receiver spot
Combatants: James Jones (26 years old, 6-feet, 1-inch, 208 [...]
One of the best parts of training camp involves the battles waged between teammates.
Some guys battle for spots on the depth chart. Others battle for spots on the roster. Either way, the battles are often friendly, yet extremely intense.
The 2010 Green Bay Packers will have a handful of such battles in training camp this year. [...]
