Rollins Ready To Rebound

A year ago at this time, I defended a third-year player coming off a poor season. Davante Adams proved me right by catching 70 passes for 997 yards and 12 TDs in 2016. Today, I’ll be defending another third-year player coming off a poor season – one whom I’m every bit as confident will prove

Corners Are Key To D

The Packers have been a good defensive team exactly two times since Dom Capers took over as coordinator eight years ago. In 2010, the D finished 5th in yards and 2nd in points in a season that ended in the Super Bowl. And in 2014, the D surrendered only 19 points per game in the second half of a season

Positional Analysis: Cornerback

This is the 13th of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason. Starters (D): Losing Sam Shields to a concussion in week 1 devastated this position. Youngsters Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins, and LeDarius Gunter simply weren’t ready for the move up the depth chart. How shaky are things heading into the draft? So

Rough Season For Young Corners

Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins have struggled all season, and while it’s obviously too soon to give up on the young cornerbacks, it’s not too soon to be worried. Last year’s top two draft picks have clearly regressed after promising debuts. While Randall has made number of big plays, he’s also been lit up by

Nightmare In Nashville

There was a time when the Green Bay Packers, following a tough loss, would’ve punished a middling team like the Tennessee Titans. But that was quite a while ago. Sunday, the Titans punished the middling Packers after a tough loss of their own. The nightmare in Nashville dropped Green Bay to 4-5. The good news is

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. DET

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 Lions: —General manager Ted Thompson has an extremely difficult decision to make in regard to the future of T.J. Lang, and the veteran guard is doing all he can to

Physicals Today, Practice Tomorrow

Ninety players will arrive at training camp on Monday, but it remains to be seen how many will actually be practicing on Tuesday. Based on the offseason, the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list could be pretty crowded to begin the summer. Wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Ty Montgomery, tight end Jared Cook, offensive linemen

10 Questions Heading Into Camp

Training camp is only a few days away, and few teams are more stable than Green Bay heading into the 2016 season. General manager Ted Thompson and head coach Mike McCarthy have been together for over a decade, quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been running the offense for nine years and the defensive staff – aside

Best Moves Of 2015

Now that another Packers’ season has come to an end, it’s once again time to look back at the best moves made by GM Ted Thompson in the past calendar year. 1) SIGNING JAMES JONES – Bringing back the veteran wide receiver may have seemed like a no-brainer, but hey, you’d be surprised by how many

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
