Off The Field

Best Packers In Past 40 Years

As the NFL Network runs down its list of the top 100 players for 2018, here’s my updated list of the top 25 Green Bay Packers since 1977 (feel free to comment): (tie) 25] CB Al Harris (2003-2009) – One of Mike Sherman’s few good personnel decisions as general manager, the former backup with Tampa Bay and Philadelphia

The Ultimate Diss

People under the age of 40 don’t know how tough it was to be a Packers fan in the 1970s and 1980s. Back then, a first-round pick actually chose to play in the Canadian Football League. Yes, exactly 38 years ago today, Bruce Clark signed with Toronto instead of Green Bay. It was the first

If I Were The GM

I hate when a year or two after the fact people say they would’ve drafted this guy instead of this guy. It’s too easy. So I decided to pick along with GM Brian Gutekunst and make my selections right before he made his. These were my picks: Round 1 (#18) – The March offer sheet

The Green Bay Packers Select…

Predicting which player the Green Bay Packers will take in the first round is never easy, but it got that much harder when Brian Gutekunst was named the team’s new general manager. At least with Ted Thompson calling the shots, you knew the first pick would fill a major need and would come from one

Best Options For Packers At 14

Running back Saquon Barkley, guard Quenton Nelson and defensive end Bradley Chubb will definitely not be available when the Packers pick at 14 in the first round of next week’s draft. Linebackers Tremaine Edmunds and Roquan Smith and cornerback Denzel Ward also figure to be off the board.  Everyone else could be in play when

Ridley’s More Than Measurables

I consider Calvin Ridley to be one of the best players in the draft, but I’m not surprised to find most reputable mocks – if there are such things – have him going in the late teens to the early 20s. Scouts aren’t drooling over Ridley the way they did over top-10 picks Mike Williams and

Vander Esch Worth Taking At 14

I have to admit to being biased when I first watched Leighton Vander Esch. His name sounded like a character from Gossip Girl and at first glance he looked like so many other pedestrian linebackers the Packers have trotted out in the past dozen years (A.J. Hawk, Brandon Chillar, Jake Ryan, Kyler Fackrell, etc.). It

Packers Could Use Moore At QB

Forget Jimmy Graham. Forget Muhammad Wilkerson, Forget Tramon Williams. The best free agent signing the Packers could make this offseason is a player who hopefully wouldn’t play a single down in 2018 – veteran quarterback Matt Moore. We all saw what happened to the offense when Aaron Rodgers went down with a broken collarbone early

Cost Of Trading Up From 14

The Packers haven’t traded up in the first round since 2002 when then-GM Mike Sherman went from No. 28 to No. 20 to get wide receiver Javon Walker. But with a new GM (Brian Gutekunst) and a draft that appears to have 13 players separating themselves from the rest, this might be the perfect year to

Underrated Oliver Could Be Special

Isaiah Oliver hasn’t been connected to the Green Bay Packers in many of this offseason’s mock drafts, but after watching all of the top cornerback prospects, I’m beginning to think the former Colorado star might just be a perfect fit at 14. In my opinion, the only better corner in this draft is Ohio State’s
