Choosing between linebackers Jayrone Elliott and Lerentee McCray was one of the hardest things I had to do when predicting the 53-man roster, but Ted Thompson made things a lot easier on Tuesday by trading McCray to Buffalo. The Packers will get a 2018 draft pick – most likely late and conditional – in return.
I get that newspaper writers and talking heads have a job to do, but analyzing a preseason exhibition game – especially the first one – is kind of like reviewing a rock concert after listening to the sound check. You can do it, but what’s the point? Sure I got excited when third-round pick Kyler Fackrell,
The “2-Week Rule” warns not to get too excited over a young player early in training camp. Well, it also goes the other way too. That’s why there’s no reason to panic over Kyler Fackrell’s extremely slow start. That said, you’d certainly like to see the rookie outside linebacker from Utah State pick it up
The Packers currently have 6 veteran wide receivers and a fifth-round draft pick on the roster, so a popular question these days is whether all 7 will begin next season as part of the final 53? But in reality, a more pertinent question – at least based on the players involved – is whether that will even be a legitimate option?
While anything can happen in the playoffs, a long run by Green Bay seems about as likely as Chris Christie or Rand Paul being elected president. Sunday night’s home loss to the Vikings capped off a 10-game stretch that saw the Packers win only 4 times – hardly the way any team wants to enter
Fans still waiting for the Packers’ offense to come to life are going to be very disappointed. This isn’t a slump. This is the offense in 2016. That’s something Aaron Rodgers probably realizes, and it’s probably why he looked so miserable in his post-game press conference. How else could you explain the star quarterback’s demeanor
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
At this time four years ago, Aaron Rodgers was throwing to Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson, Donald Driver, Randall Cobb, James Jones and Jermichael Finley. My how things have changed. Going into Sunday’s game against the Chargers at Lambeau Field, the names are Jones, Cobb, Ty Montgomery, Jeff Janis, Jared Abbrederis and Richard Rodgers. Is it any wonder the
On Saturday, I wrote about the inability of the Packers wide receivers to create separation against the 49ers last week. The only one who wasn’t covered like a blanket for most of the game was Jared Abbrederis, who didn’t play a snap on offense. That needs to change this afternoon when the Rams come to
It’s not easy to go from the practice squad one season to the 53-man roster the next, but wide receiver Myles White and offensive lineman Josh Walker proved it can be done. So of the eight players added to this year’s practice squad on Sunday, which have the best chance of being part of next
