Time To Shake Up Secondary

Everything looked fine in the secondary when Green Bay’s front seven was dominating the Seattle’s woeful offensive line in week 1, but things didn’t go nearly as well in week 2 when the pass rush was much less effective against Atlanta’s solid O-line. Given time, Matt Ryan played pitch and catch with his receivers. Davon

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

Q&A: King Or Watt?

Secondary A Primary Concern

You can’t say GM Ted Thompson ignored the cornerback position during the offseason, but unless you’re extremely confident in a player who was released by the woeful Jaguars and a rookie, you really can’t say the position has been upgraded. When a defense plays as poorly against the pass as the 31st-ranked Packers did in

Defense, Defense, Defense

There’s no question the Packers will be faster on defense next season. Whether they’ll be better remains to be seen. Friday’s draft picks – Kevin King, Josh Jones and Montravius Adams – posted some of the best 40 times at their respective positions at the Combine, but none of the three looked nearly as good playing
