D-lightful Start To Season

The Packers’ defense often resembles the Bad News Bears, but it usually looks like the ’85 Chicago Bears against Seattle. Sunday was no exception as Mike Daniels and the front seven dominated and helped hold quarterback Russell Wilson and the rest of the Seahawks’ offense to 9 points and 225 yards. There’s no question the

Bold Predictions For ’17

A prediction is bold until it doesn’t come true; then it becomes stupid. But hey, that’s not going to stop me from making some for the 2017 season. Here they are: CAREER-HIGH IN SACKS FOR NO. 52 – Considering Clay Matthews has a combined 11.5 sacks in the past two seasons, it probably seems more crazy

More Challenges Await Sirmans

Being a position coach in the National Football League is a tough job. It’s even tougher when the position you coach consists of five rookies and a three-year vet who didn’t even play the position until last October. Welcome to your life, Ben Sirmans.

The second-year pro from Stanford averaged an impressive 5.9 yards on 77 carries and showed surprisingly good instincts. He ran with patience and was

Time To Use Full Monty

A player who wasn’t even a running back when Green Bay and Dallas met in the middle of October could be the key to the rematch in the divisional round of the playoffs. Ty Montgomery, who made the switch from wide receiver around Halloween, needs to make an impact on Sunday – especially with Jordy

Walk-Off Win For Packers

The silly narrative that Aaron Rodgers isn’t a clutch player took a hit on Sunday in Chicago when the two-time MVP and future Hall of Famer made yet another throw for the ages. And unlike so many other times in his storied career, on this day he didn’t leave enough time on the clock for

Packers Keep Hope Alive

It wasn’t pretty, but the Packers did what they had to do on Sunday at Lambeau Field. A 21-13 win over Houston evened their record at 6-6 and guaranteed at least one more meaningful game in a season that has been a struggle from the start. As has often been the case throughout the past
