Ervin Provided Positive Returns

Brian Gutekunst was named GM of the Packers on January 8, 2018. He’s made over 100 personnel moves since that time – some good and some bad. I’ll be listing his best moves over the course of the next few weeks. Here’s No. 10: After 12 games, the Packers incredibly had negative punt return yards.

After missing the playoffs for two consecutive seasons, the Packers bounced back in a big way under rookie head coach Matt LaFleur. But getting from the NFC championship game to the Super Bowl will take more than another four months of fortuitous calls, close wins, and incredible health. It’ll take a really strong draft –

Davis-Gaither Will Be A Steal

I have no idea where Akeem Davis-Gaither will be drafted, but I’m certain it won’t be high enough.

That’s because he doesn’t smoothly project to any one position at the

It doesn’t matter how fast a quarterback can run or how hard he can throw the ball if he doesn’t make good decisions. And
