Packers Win Without Superstars

The Packers have had amazing success over the past quarter century. Since 1993, the team has made the playoffs 19 times and won a pair of Super Bowls. What’s even more amazing is just how few truly great players were part of that success. The only Hall of Famers are Reggie White and Brett Favre,

Allison Suspension Benefits Packers

Geronimo Allison will serve a one-game suspension without pay for violating the substance-abuse policy, the NFL announced Wednesday. The second-year wide receiver was charged with a misdemeanor possession of marijuana in December. The Packers might want to send Roger Goodell a thank you note. By suspending Allison, who figured to be at best fourth on

The Ring’s The Thing

Winning Super Bowl LII would obviously make Packers fans extremely happy. But another ring would mean even more to Ted Thompson, Mike McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers. It would place the general manager and the head coach on a path to Canton and it would make the quarterback a legend. Here’s a closer look at why winning

Harris Deserves To Be Honored

Next weekend’s long overdue induction of cornerback Mark Lee into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame will leave just one glaring omission – Tim Harris. I had assumed for years that the dynamic outside linebacker was an enshrinee, but we all know what they say about those who assume. “I didn’t make a lot of friends

Ted’s Picks Stick Around

Ted Thompson drafted 111 players from 2005 – the year he was hired as general manager of the Packers – through 2016. Wanna take a guess at how many of those players were active for at least one regular-season game in the NFL? The answer is 105. Of those 105, 13 have been voted to

2017 All-Former Packers Team

Green Bay will be one of the most talented teams in the National Football League this season. That obviously says a lot about general manager Ted Thompson and the men who work and have worked under him in the front office. You know what says even more? The number of former Packers on other rosters,

Life With Favre As GM

In an exclusive radio interview last week with Jason Wilde and Mark Tauscher, former star quarterback and current cheesy commercial spokesman Brett Favre said he’d be interested in working for the Packers – either as a coach or in the front office – after his youngest daughter graduates from college in four years. Since I can’t

Who’ll Be GM A Year From Now?

General manager Ted Thompson’s contract expires after the 2018 NFL Draft, so the next 10 months should be filled with rumors as to who’ll be running the team a year from now. Here’s my list of possibilities, from most likely to least likely: TED THOMPSON – Assuming both his health and his team remain good, it’s

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 37 years ago today, Bruce Clark signed with Toronto instead of Green Bay. It was the first

Roster Spots At A Premium

The Green Bay Packers are one of the deepest teams in the National Football League, so there won’t be a slew of legitimate openings on this season’s roster. Barring injuries, the following 23 players are all but guaranteed to be part of the final 53: Aaron Rodgers, Brett Hundley, Ty Montgomery, Aaron Ripkowski, Jordy Nelson,
