Green Bay Packers

Best Packers In Past 40 Years

As the NFL Network runs down its list of the top 100 players for 2018, here’s my updated list of the top 25 Green Bay Packers since 1977 (feel free to comment): (tie) 25] CB Al Harris (2003-2009) – One of Mike Sherman’s few good personnel decisions as general manager, the former backup with Tampa Bay and Philadelphia

The Ultimate Diss

People under the age of 40 don’t know how tough it was to be a Packers fan in the 1970s and 1980s. Back then, a first-round pick actually chose to play in the Canadian Football League. Yes, exactly 38 years ago today, Bruce Clark signed with Toronto instead of Green Bay. It was the first

Long Shots Worth Watching

Nearly 40 players took part in the just completed rookie orientation camp. Of the 29 undrafted free agents who took the field, a handful actually have a legitimate chance to compete for a spot on the Green Bay Packers’ 53-man roster. Here’s a look at five long shots to keep an eye on in the

If I Were The GM

I hate when a year or two after the fact people say they would’ve drafted this guy instead of this guy. It’s too easy. So I decided to pick along with GM Brian Gutekunst and make my selections right before he made his. These were my picks: Round 1 (#18) – The March offer sheet

Packers Go Big At Receiver

The Packers had eight picks on day 3 of the draft, and Brian Gutekunst used them in unique ways. The first-year general manager triple-downed on wide receivers and became the only GM to select both a punter and a long snapper in the same year (Bill Belichick and the Pats drafted a long snapper and a

Another Day, Another Corner

Three years after taking corners back to back in rounds 1 and 2 (Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins), the Packers did it again. Less than 24 hours after selecting Jaire Alexander, GM Brian Gutekunst doubled down with Josh Jackson. Incredibly, Green Bay has now picked five corners in rounds 1 and 2 since 2015. With

Another Draft, Another Corner

The first 13 picks couldn’t have worked out any better for the Packers on Thursday night in Arlington, Texas. With four quarterbacks and offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey selected in the top 9, new general manager Brian Gutekunst had his choice of either Virginia Tech’s 19-year-old linebacker Tremaine Edmunds or Florida State’s dynamic hybrid safety Derwin

Corner Remains Biggest Need

The Packers selected Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins in the first two rounds of the 2015 draft and then grabbed Kevin King with their top pick last year. Amazingly, the position is still the team’s biggest weakness. There’s no greater indictment on the last few years of Ted Thompson’s reign as general manager. Here’s a

Best Options For Packers At 14

Running back Saquon Barkley, guard Quenton Nelson and defensive end Bradley Chubb will definitely not be available when the Packers pick at 14 in the first round of next week’s draft. Linebackers Tremaine Edmunds and Roquan Smith and cornerback Denzel Ward also figure to be off the board.  Everyone else could be in play when

Ridley’s More Than Measurables

I consider Calvin Ridley to be one of the best players in the draft, but I’m not surprised to find most reputable mocks – if there are such things – have him going in the late teens to the early 20s. Scouts aren’t drooling over Ridley the way they did over top-10 picks Mike Williams and
