Amichia Has Bright Future

Ask me again at the end of training camp, but if I had to predict right now which player from the most recent draft class will enjoy the best career in the National Football League, my choice would probably come as a really big surprise. Even though more than 200 players were selected ahead of

What To Expect From Class Of ’16

As we found out last season, it’s hard to predict how a player will develop from year 1 to year 2 in the NFL. Some improve (Aaron Ripkowski), some regress (Damarious Randall) and some pretty much stay the same (Christian Ringo). Heck, some even change positions (Ty Montgomery). With that in mind, here’s a best

More Challenges Await Sirmans

Being a position coach in the National Football League is a tough job. It’s even tougher when the position you coach consists of five rookies and a three-year vet who didn’t even play the position until last October. Welcome to your life, Ben Sirmans. Sirmans, a 48-year-old native of New Jersey, enters his second season as

10 Most Irreplaceable Packers

We all found out last September just how important one player can be to the fortunes of a football team. The season-ending injury to Sam Shields also ended any chance the pass defense had of being competent. With that in mind, here’s my annual list of the 10 most irreplaceable Packers heading into training camp:

Holding On To Hundley

It’s easy to opine that Green Bay should trade Brett Hundley for a high pick, but unless the backup quarterback plays well during the regular season, that’s probably not going to happen. Even if the former UCLA star has a great August, it’s hard to imagine any team making GM Ted Thompson an offer he

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
