Preview: Packers vs. Falcons

The Packers upset Dallas thanks in part to the significant contributions of role players. They’ll need that and more to beat Atlanta on Sunday afternoon and earn a second trip to the Super Bowl in six years. With wide receivers Jordy Nelson (ribs), Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) battling injuries and LaDarius Gunter

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

That’s why it surprises me when I hear so many relatively intelligent people continuing to insist Jeff Janis is only an opportunity away from being

Six Is Enough At Wide Receiver

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?
