Randall’s Role To Change

Let’s stop with all the nonsense. The decision makers in Green Bay are moving Damarious Randall to the slot cornerback position because they’ve come to the realization he can’t get the job done on the outside. It’s really as simple as that. Here’s what cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt said about the move at last week’s

Rollins Ready To Rebound

A year ago at this time, I defended a third-year player coming off a poor season. Davante Adams proved me right by catching 70 passes for 997 yards and 12 TDs in 2016. Today, I’ll be defending another third-year player coming off a poor season – one whom I’m every bit as confident will prove

Scouting Report: Jahri Evans

As someone who begged GM Ted Thompson for years to add veteran free agents to fill gaping holes, I’m sure as heck not going to criticize his decision to sign Jahri Evans. That said, let’s just say the situation at right guard is still a bit iffy. That’s because after finally getting a chance to watch nearly every snap

Defending The Indefensible

Mike McCarthy was a guest on ESPN Milwaukee’s Wilde and Tausch Show last week, and much to the credit of the hosts, he was asked why he’s stuck with beleaguered defensive coordinator Dom Capers for so long. Here was his answer: “Well, going back to the Mason Crosby comment, and obviously applying that to the

Scouting Report: Jordan Tripp

Packers fans are among the most knowledgeable in the league, but even the majority of them had no clue who Jordan Tripp was when he signed with the team last December. Since that included yours truly, I decided to put the former Montana star under the microscope. What I saw on the All-22 was better than

Longshots To Keep An Eye On

Ted Thompson has given jobs to more unemployed young men over the past decade than Adecco, and that’s why so many of the top undrafted free agents choose to sign with Green Bay. Of the 15 such players who showed up for rookie minicamp on Friday, none has a better chance of beating the odds

Hill Of An Athlete

Former BYU quarterback Taysom Hill will be fascinating to watch in the weeks and perhaps months to come – not to mention easy to root for. The 26-year-old dealt with one major injury after another in college and never gave up. And while his chances of making the roster aren’t good, it would be foolish to bet against him. The Packers will

Corners Are Key To D

The Packers have been a good defensive team exactly two times since Dom Capers took over as coordinator eight years ago. In 2010, the D finished 5th in yards and 2nd in points in a season that ended in the Super Bowl. And in 2014, the D surrendered only 19 points per game in the second half of a season

Rodgers Is A Great Deodorant

Forget Right Guard, the best deodorant in Green Bay is Quarterback. Marshall Newhouse at left tackle. Andrew Quarless at tight end. Brandon Jackson at running back. Don Barclay at, well, anywhere. Consistently bad defenses and special teams. Yep, Aaron Rodgers has been masking the stink for the past 8 seasons. If an extraterrestrial were to

Scouting Report: Ricky Jean Francois

As far as bang for the buck is concerned, Ricky Jean Francois could wind up being the best investment GM Ted Thompson has ever made in free agency. For a mere $2 million, the defense will be getting a hard-working and pretty darn good player. I’m in no way suggesting Jean Francois will produce like future
