Preview: Packers vs. Buccaneers

On Wednesday, a reporter asked Matt LaFleur what the biggest difference is between Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. I lost interest halfway through the coach’s response because there’s really only one correct answer to that question – six rings.

Two games into his fourth season, it’s likely free safety Darnell Savage is pretty much who he’s going to be in the NFL, and that’s certainly not the player general manager Brian Gutekunst eagerly traded up to get in the first round of the 2019 draft.

Thursday Thoughts: Deja Vu

I like to pick along with the GM during drafts and then see who was right three years later. Looking back at 2019 is very interesting.

Preview: Packers vs. Vikings

Matt LaFleur and the Packers have lost only 10 regular season games in three seasons, and a pair of them have been to the Vikings.
