Off The Field

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

No Surprise Reid’s Still Unsigned

The pickings are pretty slim after two and a half weeks of free agency. The biggest names left on the open market – players like wide receiver Jordan Matthews and corner  Bashaud Breeland – come with serious health concerns. Finding a proven starter in April who’s not rehabbing from some type of major injury is

Hey Aaron, Don’t Be Greedy

Aaron Rodgers is the best player on the Green Bay Packers, but he isn’t the Green Bay Packers. That’s something everyone needs to remember as the two sides engage in contract negotiations. The future Hall of Fame quarterback has every right to demand the world. And the iconic franchise has every right to just say

Mocking The Packers

I‘ve never been a fan of mock drafts, but fans love them. So here’s my second effort at predicting what will happen next month. Green Bay picks 14th, and while new GM Brian Gutekunst will talk about taking the best player available, the reality is he’s going to try to fill a need – just

Bumpy Start For Brian

The always sycophantic Wisconsin media and the large segment of Packers fans who wear their Green and Yellow glasses year round have spent the past seven days praising the work of new GM Brian Gutekunst. Call me negative – I know many of you already do – but I find very little to get excited

Time To Bring Tramon Home

The last image most Packers fans have of Tramon Williams is him getting beat for the game-winning touchdown in the NFC championship game in 2014. I guess that’s why so many people thought I was crazy for suggesting a year ago that the Packers should sign the veteran cornerback in free agency. Well, guess what?
