Green Bay Packers

O-Line Now Down Two Star Guards

Despite giving up close to triple the number of pressures as his predecessor, the Packers offensive line held up just fine in 2016 with young Lane Taylor replacing perennial All-Pro Josh Sitton at left guard. But expecting such smooth sailing this season without T.J. Lang at right guard might be asking too much. Give general manager

Packers Win Without Superstars

The Packers have had amazing success over the past quarter century. Since 1993, the team has made the playoffs 19 times and won a pair of Super Bowls. What’s even more amazing is just how few truly great players were part of that success. The only Hall of Famers are Reggie White and Brett Favre,

Allison Suspension Benefits Packers

Geronimo Allison will serve a one-game suspension without pay for violating the substance-abuse policy, the NFL announced Wednesday.

Ted’s Picks Stick Around

Ted Thompson drafted 111 players from 2005 – the year he was hired as general manager of the Packers – through 2016. Wanna take a guess at how many of those players were active for at least one regular-season game in the NFL? The answer is 105. Of those 105, 13 have been voted to

2017 All-Former Packers Team

Green Bay will be one of the most talented teams in the National Football League this season. That obviously says a lot about general manager Ted Thompson and the men who work and have worked under him in the front office. You know what says even more? The number of former Packers on other rosters,
