D-lightful Start To Season

The Packers’ defense often resembles the Bad News Bears, but it usually looks like the ’85 Chicago Bears against Seattle. Sunday was no exception as Mike Daniels and the front seven dominated and helped hold quarterback Russell Wilson and the rest of the Seahawks’ offense to 9 points and 225 yards. There’s no question the

Preview: Packers vs. Seahawks

Here are four big questions heading into today’s opener between Green Bay and Seattle. 1) Can Murphy hold up at right tackle? Bryan Bulaga may be listed as questionable with an ankle injury, but based on coach Mike McCarthy’s comments on Friday, it’s doubtful the Pro Bowl caliber right tackle will be on the field

Déjà Vu All Over Again?

I opined before the start of the 2012 season that the Packers would not win another Super Bowl with Dom Capers as their defensive coordinator. The bad news is I’ve been right. The team hasn’t even reached the big game since winning it all in 2010. The good news is Mike McCarthy’s stubbornness has made

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. DEN

After “studying the tape” (that sounds better than “turning on the computer”), here are the heroes and the zeros from Saturday’s 20-17 preseason loss at Denver: HEROES DAMARIOUS RANDALL – The much-maligned former No. 1 pick started at left corner and played very well. He was more physical than usual and his coverage was excellent.

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. WAS

After “studying the tape” (that sounds better than “turning on the computer”), here are the heroes and the zeros from Saturday’s 21-17 preseason win over Washington: HEROES BACKUP QUARTERBACKS – Brett Hundley‘s numbers were excellent (9 of 10 for 107 yards and 1 TD), but they don’t do him justice. Under decent pressure and with

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. PHI

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are the heroes and the zeros from Thursday night’s 24-9 preseason opening win over the Philadelphia Eagles: HEROES UNHERALDED YOUNG DEFENSIVE BACKS – Second-round pick Josh Jones had a solid debut, but the best defensive backs on this

Letters From Camp: Day 6

Dear Packers fans, Tuesday was another perfect day for the fifth practice of training camp. The skies were crystal clear and the temperature was in the low 70s. Here’s what I saw: Kevin King sat out with a shoulder injury today, so Damarious Randall took some snaps with the 1s, but it’s clear he’s fallen

Letters From Camp: Day 2

Dear Packers fans, Friday was a perfect day for the second practice of training camp. The skies were crystal clear and the temperature was in the upper 60s. Here’s what I saw: -It’s never a good idea to read too much into what happens early in training camp, but it sure looks like coordinator Dom

Observations From The Offseason

The Packers concluded their offseason program with last week’s three-day minicamp. GM Ted Thompson spent the past few months replacing veterans lost to free agency and fixing the secondary, with an eye on getting back to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2010. The new-look roster will reconvene in five weeks for training camp. Here

Draft Review: Roster Analysis

With the draft now history, here’s a position-by-position look at the Packers’ 90-man roster: QUARTERBACK: Hall of Fame general manager Ron Wolf believed in drafting a quarterback every single year, but once again Ted Thompson didn’t adhere to his mentor’s philosophy. With Brett Hundley likely to be moved next offseason, it would’ve made sense to spend
