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

The Bakhtiari Effect

There was a brief time after the Packers traded up  in the second round to draft Jason Spriggs that I thought left tackle David Bakhtiari might not be back in 2017 – and then I remembered who makes decisions for the organization. General manager Ted Thompson simply doesn’t let good young starters get away. Bakhtiari’s

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

Packers Ready To Run

The Packers will never run the ball 40 times a game with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, but if they’re ever going to be truly dominant on the ground, this would be the year. The talented and experienced offensive line will be together for what figures to be its final season and the No. 1 halfback will be determined to

Ted’s Round 4 Success

General manager Ted Thompson has three fourth-round picks in this month’s draft. Based on recent history, he’d be wise to use all of them on offensive linemen. Since 2005, Thompson has picked guards Josh Sitton (2008) and T.J. Lang (2009), left tackle David Bakhtiari (2013) and center JC Tretter (2013) in the fourth round. They are 4

Tough Choice: Lang Or Sitton?

Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang are among 18 Packers whose contracts expire at the end of the 2016 season. And while there’s always a chance GM Ted Thompson could re-sign both of his longtime starting guards, it’s far more likely that he’ll have to choose between the two. It’s not exactly Sophie’s Choice, but it

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

Pro Bowl Possibilities

Green Bay is on pace to win 11 games this season, and yet there’s a chance only two or three players will be voted to the Pro Bowl. And truth be told, the number shouldn’t be much higher. Here’s a quick look at the Packers who might be going to Honolulu in late January: JOSH SITTON

Packers Most Underrated Player

T.J. Lang made headlines earlier in the season for getting fined  for an altercation with Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright. The veteran guard should be making headlines for his play on the field. The former Eastern Michigan star has quietly developed into one of the best interior offensive linemen in the National Football League. While it’s true
