Q&A: Who’s The Biggest Surprise?

Who’s been the biggest disappointment and the biggest surprise so far? – Rachel It’s still very early, but Damarious Randall has been the biggest disappointment. The No. 1 pick

D-Line Depth Takes A Hit

With Letroy Guion (4-game suspension) certain to miss the start of the regular season and rookie Montravius Adams (foot surgery) highly unlikely to be ready for the week 1 opener against Seattle, the Packers are very thin up front – even for a team that more often than not employs only two defensive linemen at
