Letroy Guion

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

Positional Analysis: Defensive End

This is the ninth of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason. Starters (C+): Seven-year vet Mike Daniels is the only quality end on the roster, but considering how rarely the Packers line up in their base defense (136 times in 1,239 snaps), that’s probably enough. The former Iowa star was a bit inconsistent last

Guion Should Be Gone

I didn’t think Letroy Guion was worth bringing back even before Tuesday, so imagine my surprise to find out the team was sticking with the veteran nose tackle even after he was suspended for the first 4 games of next season for PEDs. Since 2014, the 29-year-old former Florida State star has more suspensions (2)

The second-year inside linebacker was strong against the run and effective in coverage. It was hard to know what to

Fans Cheer For The Uniform

His arrest in February showed Letroy Guion to be a man no parent would want their daughter to bring home. His prior brushes with the law – exposed by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel two weeks ago – showed Guion to be a man no decent human being would want anything to do with. But the

Looking Ahead To Free Agency

With running back Eddie Lacy and 60% of the offensive line due to become unrestricted free agents in 2017, general manager Ted Thompson will face his most challenging offseason since the Summer of Favre. And while 2016 won’t be quite as imposing, it won’t be a walk in the park either. Six starters and kicker Mason Crosby

Nobody Does It Better

Aaron Rodgers has certainly won much bigger games and he’s certainly put up much more impressive numbers, but all things considered, the Packers’ all-world quarterback played about as well as he’s ever played in Sunday’s season-opening win over Chicago. Working without star Jordy Nelson and with a clearly hampered Randall Cobb, the reigning league MVP
