End of the Road for Packers Jordy Nelson

By now everyone has heard that the Packers put Jordy Nelson out to pasture. I knew this day was coming, so I can’t say I’m surprised. Needless to say, it still smarts. Age has never been an asset for anyone in professional football, and in this era, that expiration date is occurring younger and younger. […]

Is Wilkerson Worth the Risk for the Packers?

Yes, another post about Mo Wilkerson. He’s on everyone’s lips today as he visits the Green Bay Packers in what will likely be the first of many speed dating visits around the NFL. My colleague Sean Blashe has an excellent article from earlier today on why the Packers should get Wilkerson to sign on the […]

Packers need an upgrade at tight end

Is the third time the charm for finding the right tight end in free agency? There is no question that the Packers have lacked a quality receiving TE since Jermichael Finley’s departure following a career-ending neck injury in 2013.

With the 14th pick of the NFL Draft the Packers Select…

Do the Packers even have a backup QB option in free agency?

Here’s the deal, I like Brett Hundley. He’s a nice kid. He fits the Matt Flynn role of partner in crime for some pretty spectacular QB photobombs for the weekly captain’s picture. He’s even been seen running around in one of those inflatable T-Rex costumes. But, and this is a huge but, he wasn’t that […]

Hopefully Saturday is Finally it for Kramer

I swear this will be the last time I write about famed Packers Guard Jerry Kramer (okay, I probably lied. If things go well on Saturday, I may write something in August from Canton.) But let’s stop for a moment and quote the great philosopher and 2017 Canton inductee K. Greene: It is time. Seriously, […]
