Preview: Packers vs. Falcons

Here are four big questions heading into tonight’s game between Green Bay and Atlanta: 1) How much will the offense miss wide receiver Allen Lazard? More than it should, and that’s because GM Brian Gutekunst did so little to upgrade the talent at the position. Going into the season with Malik Taylor (0 career catches)

Here are four big questions heading into tonight’s game between Green Bay and New Orleans: 1) How good is the Packers’ offense? Ask me again in about 24 hours. After taking full advantage of inexperienced and injury-depleted defenses the first two weeks, Aaron Rodgers and company will be facing a much tougher test on Sunday

The Weekend Six-Pack

Every Friday or Saturday, I’ll be posting six videos from the game played earlier in the week. The videos won’t be of obvious plays like touchdowns, but of plays that I found either important or at least interesting. Here’s this weekend’s six-pack:   On Wednesday, coach Matt LaFleur opined that Jamaal Williams (#30) looks “twitchier.”

Tale Of The Tape: Week 2 (DET)

The Packers’ 42-21 dismantling of the Lions was coach Matt LaFleur’s eighth consecutive win against the NFC North. That, along with a 15-3 overall record, makes the 40-year-old’s first 18 games among the most successful in league history. Not bad for a guy who was interviewed by only one team following the 2018 season. And

Here are four big questions heading into today’s game between Green Bay and Minnesota: 1) How much will the Packers miss injured defensive lineman Kenny Clark? A lot. The run defense struggled last week, even with the Pro Bowl nose tackle on the field in the first half. Without him, Green Bay is left with

Every Friday or Saturday, I’ll be posting six videos from the game played earlier in the week. The videos won’t be of obvious plays like touchdowns, but of plays that I found either important or at least interesting. Here’s this weekend’s six-pack:   The end result of this play wasn’t pretty, but it sure was

Tale Of The Tape: Week 1 (MIN)

With an abbreviated practice schedule and no preseason games, it was even more difficult to predict what was going to happen in week 1. That said, seeing the Packers put up 43 points and over 500 yards was still a surprise. Using enough motion to make even an experienced sailor seasick, Matt LaFleur had the

Preview: Packers vs. Vikings

Here are four big questions heading into today’s game between Green Bay and Minnesota: 1) Can the defense slow down Pro Bowl running back Dalvin Cook? I’m not sure the run defense could slow down Apple’s Tim Cook. The Packers struggled to contain Dalvin Cook (20 carries for 154 yards) at Lambeau early last season,

Preview: What To Expect In 2020

Sure, the 2019 Green Bay Packers benefited from unusually good health and a somewhat fortuitous schedule en route to the NFC Championship game, but 13-3 is still 13-3. That’s why anything less than another deep run in the playoffs would have to be considered a disappointment, especially for a team that returns all but two
