Off The Field

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,

Walden Would Be Solid Insurance

Depth at outside linebacker was an issue even before Monday’s surprising news that fourth-round draft pick Vince Biegel underwent surgery on his right foot last week. Now it would be downright negligent of general manager Ted Thompson not to sign a veteran before players report to St. Norbert’s College in late July. Even if Biegel is cleared to return in time for the start

Best Packers In Past 40 Years

As the NFL Network runs down its list of the top 100 players for 2017, here’s my updated list of the top 25 Green Bay Packers since 1977 (feel free to comment): 25] CB Al Harris (2003-2009) – One of Mike Sherman’s few good personnel decisions, the former backup with Tampa Bay and Philadelphia brought much-needed cover skills
