Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. WAS

After “studying the tape” (that sounds better than “turning on the computer”), here are the heroes and the zeros from Saturday’s 21-17 preseason win over Washington: HEROES BACKUP QUARTERBACKS – Brett Hundley‘s numbers were excellent (9 of 10 for 107 yards and 1 TD), but they don’t do him justice. Under decent pressure and with

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. PHI

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are the heroes and the zeros from Thursday night’s 24-9 preseason opening win over the Philadelphia Eagles: HEROES UNHERALDED YOUNG DEFENSIVE BACKS – Second-round pick Josh Jones had a solid debut, but the best defensive backs on this

Q&A: Who’s The Biggest Surprise?

Packers Notes contributor Robert Tanner has been at three practices so far this summer and he was gracious enough to answer some of your burning questions. Who’s been the biggest disappointment and the biggest surprise so far? – Rachel It’s still very early, but Damarious Randall has been the biggest disappointment. The No. 1 pick

Spriggs Won’t Sit For Long

General manager Ted Thompson didn’t boldly trade up in the second round of last year’s draft to select Jason Spriggs only to have him sit on the sidelines until he leaves as an unrestricted free agent in 2020. The former Indiana star will eventually be the team’s starting right tackle – it just won’t be this season. That’s because of

Positional Analysis: Offensive Tackle

This is the sixth of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason. Starters (A-): Last September, GM Ted Thompson signed left tackle David Bakhtiari to an extension worth $12 million per. Amazingly, he got a bargain. That’s how well the 25-year-old played last season. The former Colorado star was terrific in pass protection,

Spriggs Surviving At Guard

It was actually painful to watch Jason Spriggs on tape. Not because of the way the rookie right guard played against Houston on Sunday, but because he had to work so darn hard. I’ve seen a lot of football over the past 35 years, and I can’t remember an offensive lineman exerting so much energy on almost every snap. Why

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

The Bakhtiari Effect

There was a brief time after the Packers traded up  in the second round to draft Jason Spriggs that I thought left tackle David Bakhtiari might not be back in 2017 – and then I remembered who makes decisions for the organization. General manager Ted Thompson simply doesn’t let good young starters get away. Bakhtiari’s

Injuries Could Impact Opener

The Packers won a fake game on Friday night in San Francisco, but suffered three real injuries that could impact the team in the regular season. Chris Banjo and Jayrone Elliott pulled their hamstrings covering kicks and Jason Spriggs played the entire second half with a club on his right hand. The team did not
