Kenny Clark

Positional Analysis: Nose Tackle

This is the 10th of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason. Starter (C-): Journeyman Ricky Jean Francois was signed last month, but the coaches would like Kenny Clark to be the starter in the middle of the D-line. Last year’s No. 1 pick had an ordinary rookie season until turning it up a notch

Role Players Lift Defense

On a day when highly-paid stars Mike Daniels, Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers were mediocre at best, the Packers needed other players to step up on defense. Fortunately, Micah Hyde, Kenny Clark and Joe Thomas heeded the call. While the Cowboys managed to score 31 points and amass 429 yards, those numbers would’ve been much

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. CHI

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 10 additional thoughts from Thursday’s game against the Bears: —Last Thursday was the Ty Montgomery show. Forget for a minute the 10 catches for 66 yards. The second-year player also contributed 60 yards on nine carries. That would

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. NYG

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 Giants: —Jordy Nelson is 31 and coming off a torn ACL, so it’s probably unfair to expect him to be the explosive receiver who terrorized opposing defenses in

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. MIN

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 Vikings: —This was the best game of Jake Ryan‘s brief NFL career. The second-year inside linebacker was strong against the run and effective in coverage. It was hard to know what to

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. JAX

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 Jaguars: 1) Damarious Randall was the Packers’ best player on Sunday. The former No. 1 pick from Arizona State was terrific in coverage and more than adequate against

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. CLE

The Packers opened the 2016 preseason with a 17-11 win over the Cleveland Browns at Lambeau Field. I watched the tape so you don’t have to. Here’s what I saw: —Undrafted rookie guard Lucas Patrick did a solid job, especially considering he was playing with a club on his broken right hand. The former Duke star

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,

Clark Needs To Make Impact

First-round pick Kenny Clark needs to perform very well this season for Green Bay to get to the Super Bowl. That might be asking a lot of a 20-year-old rookie, but it’s a fact. Teams with only one quality defensive lineman simply don’t play in early February, and that’s all the Packers appear to have
