David Bakhtiari

Positional Analysis: Offensive Tackle

This is the sixth of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason. Starters (A-): Last September, GM Ted Thompson signed left tackle David Bakhtiari to an extension worth $12 million per. Amazingly, he got a bargain. That’s how well the 25-year-old played last season. The former Colorado star was terrific in pass protection,

Packers Reclaim NFC North

With Sunday night’s convincing win over Detroit, Mike McCarthy has now taken the Packers to the playoffs for eight straight seasons. The only other coaches in league history to do that are Bill Belichick (New England), Tom Landry (Dallas) and Chuck Noll (Pittsburgh). If McCarthy can win four more games without any cornerbacks, he’ll deserve

Best At The Bye

The Packers played only 3 games prior to their bye, and while things will obviously change between now and January, here are the 10 best players as of today: 1. Mike Daniels – The veteran defensive lineman was named the team’s MVP last season, and he’s well on his way to going back-to-back. He’s the main

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. MIN

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 10 additional thoughts from Sunday’s game against the Vikings: —This was the best game of Jake Ryan‘s brief NFL career. The second-year inside linebacker was strong against the run and effective in coverage. It was hard to know what to

The Bakhtiari Effect

There was a brief time after the Packers traded up  in the second round to draft Jason Spriggs that I thought left tackle David Bakhtiari might not be back in 2017 – and then I remembered who makes decisions for the organization. General manager Ted Thompson simply doesn’t let good young starters get away. Bakhtiari’s

10 Questions Heading Into Camp

Training camp is only a few days away, and few teams are more stable than Green Bay heading into the 2016 season. General manager Ted Thompson and head coach Mike McCarthy have been together for over a decade, quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been running the offense for nine years and the defensive staff – aside

10 Most Irreplaceable Packers

We all found out in a preseason game against the Steelers last August just how important one player can be to the fortunes of a football team. With that in mind, here’s a look at the 10 most irreplaceable Packers heading into next week’s draft: 1) AARON RODGERS – Absolutely no surprise here. In fact, No. 12

Packers Ready To Run

The Packers will never run the ball 40 times a game with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, but if they’re ever going to be truly dominant on the ground, this would be the year. The talented and experienced offensive line will be together for what figures to be its final season and the No. 1 halfback will be determined to

Ted’s Round 4 Success

General manager Ted Thompson has three fourth-round picks in this month’s draft. Based on recent history, he’d be wise to use all of them on offensive linemen. Since 2005, Thompson has picked guards Josh Sitton (2008) and T.J. Lang (2009), left tackle David Bakhtiari (2013) and center JC Tretter (2013) in the fourth round. They are 4

The Bakhtiari Dilemma

The last quality young starter to leave the Packers as an unrestricted free agent was offensive lineman Mike Wahle in 2005, so the odds are pretty high that left tackle David Bakhtiari will be re-signed before he’s eligible to hit the open market next March. But considering his level of play and the price it
