Packers Win Preseason Opener

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,

Roster Battle: Offensive Line

It’s difficult to remember the last time the Packers released an offensive lineman at the end of training camp who could actually play in the National Football League. Well, that’s probably going to happen a month from now. Even if GM Ted Thompson decides to keep nine at the position – something he’s only done

Don’t Forget About Walker

It’s easy to write off Josh Walker after his terrible performance against the Arizona Cardinals in week 16, but that would be a mistake. Prior to looking completely overmatched at tackle, the former practice squadder from Middle Tennessee State had done some encouraging things at guard – his natural position. Don’t blame Walker for looking like a

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. ARZ

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 Cardinals: -You have to credit Bryan Bulaga, Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang for playing through injuries, but the three veteran offensive linemen clearly aren’t performing the way they

High And Lows Of Camp

Now that training camp and the preseason is mercifully over, let’s take a look back at some of the highs and some of the lows from the past six weeks: Biggest surprises (players): Former UCLA star Brett Hundley was the most impressive rookie quarterback I’ve seen in over three decades of following the Packers… Third-round pick

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 14 additional thoughts from yesterday’s game against the Eagles: 1) Brett Hundley didn’t play as well as his gaudy numbers would suggest, but all things considered, it was a good night for the rookie quarterback. The

Help Wanted Needed At Tackle

I understand that general manager Ted Thompson picks the best available player, but he needed to make sure the best available player at some point in either of the past two drafts was a tackle. By ignoring that position since 2013, the Packers now find themselves without a legitimate backup to starters David Bakhtiari and

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. PIT

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 14 additional thoughts from yesterday’s game against the Steelers: 1) Undrafted free agent Alonzo Harris probably played himself off the 53-man roster by dropping a couple of easy passes. The 240-pound former Louisiana-Lafayette star has shown

Preview: Packers vs. Steelers

Presumptive starter Sam Barrington has been ordinary, Nate Palmer has a club on his left hand and Carl Bradford is still trying to find his way at inside linebacker. In the meantime, rookie Jake Ryan just keeps getting better. The fourth-round draft pick followed up a solid game against New England with arguably his best

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. NE

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 12 additional thoughts from last night’s game against New England: 1) If excelling on special teams is his ticket to the 53-man roster, rookie fullback Aaron Ripkowski might want to start looking for a home in
