Ball’s Not Worth The Risk

Even though team president Mark Murphy hasn’t even begun his official search yet, all signs point to Vice President of Football Administration/Player Finance Russ Ball being named the 11th general manager in the history of the Green Bay Packers. And while this wouldn’t be a surprise – I wrote about the possibility two years ago

Sizing Up GM Candidates

Longtime general manager Ted Thompson will transition into a new role, and the search for his replacement will begin immediately. There would appear to be three strong internal candidates for the job, as well as one from the outside. The following is a brief look at the four men, one of whom will likely be

Dom Will Be Gone

What has been a rumor for weeks will soon become a fact – defensive coordinator Dom Capers will not return for a 10th season with the Green Bay Packers. According to a source whose information has always been reliable in the past, an official announcement is expected to be made in the next few days.

Breaking Down Adams’ Deal

Potential Replacements For Dom

Packers’ defensive coordinator Dom Capers has more lives than a cat, but this may finally be the year when his seven-season run of incompetency comes to an end. If, and it’s still a big if, a change is made, here are some possible replacements (today’s focus is on veteran coaches; I’ll look at up-and-comers next

Adams Proves His Worth

Free-agent-to-be Davante Adams bet on himself in 2017, and despite a devastating hit that sent him to the hospital in week 5, that decision has proven to be a wise one. The fourth-year wide receiver will likely end the season worth at least $2 million per year more than he began it. That’s because Adams

Preview: Packers vs. Steelers

Here are four questions heading into tonight’s game between Green Bay and Pittsburgh: 1) Should the Packers have signed Colin Kaepernick when Aaron Rodgers went down? Of course, and this isn’t second-guessing after watching Brett Hundley for the past five games. Here’s what I tweeted a few minutes after Rodgers got hurt in week 6:
