10 Most Irreplaceable Packers

We all found out last September just how important one player can be to the fortunes of a football team. The season-ending injury to Sam Shields also ended any chance the pass defense had of being competent. With that in mind, here’s my annual list of the 10 most irreplaceable Packers heading into training camp:

Positional Analysis: Safety

This is the 14th of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason. Starters (B+): Few teams have a better pair of safeties than the Packers. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix went to his first Pro Bowl and was named an All-Pro in 2016. Meanwhile, Morgan Burnett quietly had the better season. The veteran from Georgia

Notes: Shields Was 1 In 200

The Packers released Sam Shields last Wednesday. After suffering his fourth concussion in September, it was only a matter of when. The move clears $9 million against the cap, giving the Packers close to $45M to spend heading into free agency. As much as the Packers could use an extra $9M – think of all

Who’s Defensive POY?

There’s no doubt Aaron Rodgers is Green Bay’s most valuable player. Heck, he’ll probably finish in the top 5 when the NFL announces its MVP in February. The offensive player of the year – if you take 12 out of the equation – is either David Bakhtiari or Jordy Nelson. And the rookie of the

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. ATL

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 Falcons: —Aaron Rodgers looked great on Sunday; he looked even better on Tuesday. Watching the All-22 tape made me realize just how special the veteran quarterback was against Atlanta. Minus his

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. DET

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 Lions: —General manager Ted Thompson has an extremely difficult decision to make in regard to the future of T.J. Lang, and the veteran guard is doing all he can to

Most Likely To Get Tagged

Last Friday was the deadline for franchise players to sign long-term contracts, and it got me to thinking about which Packer is the most likely to be tagged in the next few years. By the way, this hasn’t happened since Ryan Pickett in 2010. The best players on a team are usually the ones who

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

Pro Bowl Possibilities

Green Bay is on pace to win 11 games this season, and yet there’s a chance only two or three players will be voted to the Pro Bowl. And truth be told, the number shouldn’t be much higher. Here’s a quick look at the Packers who might be going to Honolulu in late January: JOSH SITTON

MVP Needs To Play Like One

For the first time this decade, Aaron Rodgers doesn’t have a top-notch play-caller at his side and a plethora weapons at his disposal. In short, he’s getting to see how the other half lives. And unfortunately for the Packers, he’s playing like the other half plays. Facing heavy pressure and minus a consistent running game and a true No. 1 receiver, the reigning
