Tough Decisions Await Thompson

It’s probably a good thing Ted Thompson decided to stick around for at least one more year because the Green Bay Packers will be facing some incredibly tough decisions in the coming days and weeks. The team’s most talented free agents (Jared Cook, T.J. Lang, Nick Perry, JC Tretter and Eddie Lacy) all come with

$izing Up Free Agents

Free agency begins in 22 days, and the Packers currently have 11 players ready to hit the open market. After taking into consideration age, performance and contracts around the league, here’s what I think a fair deal for each player would look like: OL DON BARCLAY – The human turnstile can line up at all

Looking Ahead To Free Agency

With Eddie Lacy, Nick Perry and 40% of the starting offensive line due to become unrestricted free agents next March, general manager Ted Thompson could be facing his most challenging offseason since the Summer of Favre in 2008. It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, so things can and obviously will change in the next four months, but

Notes: Money For Nothing

The Packers are paying wide receiver Randall Cobb, outside linebackers Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers and cornerback Sam Shields a combined $34 million this season. These same four veteran players are responsible for a staggering 28% of the $163M salary cap. Talk about not getting your money’s worth. This isn’t as much a criticism of

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

Best At The Bye

The Packers played only 3 games prior to their bye, and while things will obviously change between now and January, here are the 10 best players as of today: 1. Mike Daniels – The veteran defensive lineman was named the team’s MVP last season, and he’s well on his way to going back-to-back. He’s the main

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

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

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. OAK

The Green Bay Packers improved to 2-0 in the preseason with a 20-12 win over the Oakland Raiders on Thursday night at Lambeau Field. Once again, I watched the tape so you don’t have to. Here’s what I saw: —I’m a big Corey Linsley fan, but it’s impossible not to be impressed by JC Tretter,

Packers Fans Are The Best

What were the first 3 questions I was asked during last night’s game? If you think they were about Jordy Nelson’s knee, Corey Linsley’s hamstring and the ongoing PED investigation involving Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers, well, you’d be wrong. The first 3 questions were about running back Brandon Burks, wide receiver Geronimo Allison and
