Off The Field

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?

Top Free-Agent Cornerbacks

Cornerback was a major need for the Packers even before Friday’s surprising trade that sent Damarious Randall to Cleveland. Now the position is almost barren – with only Kevin King guaranteed to still be in the league after Labor Day. Fortunately, there are quite a few intriguing corners available in free agency. Now it’s up

Top 10 Non-QBs In Draft

The 2018 National Football League draft is still nearly two months away, so I’m sure this list will change in the coming weeks. But after studying the top prospects for the past few weeks, here are my top 10 non-quarterbacks as of today: 1. Saquon Barkley (RB/Penn State) – He’s the best running back I’ve seen

Q&A: Should Evans Be Re-Signed?

Unlike the U.S. Postal Service, Packers Notes delivers on Sundays – at least through the end of August. Here’s another batch of letters  from the offseason mailbag: One of former GM Ted Thompson’s few good moves last offseason was signing veteran guard Jahri Evans. Is he worth bringing back? – Chuck from Florida No. Evans

Hubbard Would Bolster O-Line

The Packers need to get more athletic between now and the start of training camp, and that includes along the O-line. Other than left tackle David Bakhtiari, the team lacks a plus athlete at any of the other positions. And while that’s not the only reason why the offense produced so few explosive plays in

Q&A: Why Not Dorsey?

Unlike the U.S. Postal Service, Packers Notes delivers on Sundays – at least through the end of August. Here’s another batch of letters  from the offseason mailbag: Why do you think the Packers didn’t go after John Dorsey, who was sitting out there available for months, to replace Ted Thompson? – Steve from New Jersey I
