Free Agency: Quick Takes II

Free agency is less than a week old, but the Packers already look like a much different team than the one that played in the NFC Championship game. GM Ted Thompson has re-signed a few players, bid adieu to a few others and welcomed home an old friend. Here are my quick takes on what’s

Tough Decisions Await Thompson

It’s probably a good thing Ted Thompson decided to stick around for at least one more year because the Green Bay Packers will be facing some incredibly tough decisions in the coming days and weeks. The team’s most talented free agents (Jared Cook, T.J. Lang, Nick Perry, JC Tretter and Eddie Lacy) all come with

$izing Up Free Agents

Free agency begins in 22 days, and the Packers currently have 11 players ready to hit the open market. After taking into consideration age, performance and contracts around the league, here’s what I think a fair deal for each player would look like: OL DON BARCLAY – The human turnstile can line up at all

Notes: Veteran Depth Is OK

Last week was the 20th anniversary of Super Bowl XXXI, a game in which the Green Bay Packers captured their third Lombardi Trophy by pummeling the New England Patriots. Looking back, I had almost forgotten how experienced that historically great team was, especially at a number of key backup positions. Prior to that magical season, Hall

Positional Analysis: Running Back

This is the second of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason. Starter (C+): Ty Montgomery made the switch from wide receiver after injuries sidelined Eddie Lacy and James Starks and quickly stabilized the position. The second-year pro from Stanford averaged an impressive 5.9 yards on 77 carries and showed surprisingly good instincts. He ran with patience and was

Looking Ahead To Free Agency

With Eddie Lacy, Nick Perry and 40% of the starting offensive line due to become unrestricted free agents next March, general manager Ted Thompson could be facing his most challenging offseason since the Summer of Favre in 2008. It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, so things can and obviously will change in the next four months, but

Ted’s Choice: Lacy or Shields?

Two of Green Bay’s best players are on injured reserve, and there’s a chance both Eddie Lacy and Sam Shields could be ready to return in December. But due to league rules, only one is eligible to come off IR. And while it wouldn’t exactly be Sophie’s Choice, picking between the star runner and the No. 1

Packers Humbled At Home

Given a chance to win a regular season game against a good team for the first time in a year, the Packers – wearing their unfamiliar throwback unis – laid an egg in front of a national TV audience that must’ve thought it was watching the Browns. That’s how bad Green Bay was in a

Preview: Packers vs. Cowboys

There’s a reason every team other than the Packers has at least three running backs on its 53-man roster. It’s not only an important position, it’s also one of the most physically demanding. That’s why general manager Ted Thompson’s decision to go with only James Starks behind starter Eddie Lacy never made much sense. With

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
