Packers Part Ways With Keke

General manager Brian Gutekunst typically adds new faces to the roster heading into the postseason ¬†(i.e., Jared Veldheer and Snacks Harrison), but this year, he subtracted an old face. Former starting defensive end Kingsley Keke was released on Wednesday, about 72 hours before the Packers host the San Francisco 49ers in the divisional round of […]

Monday Musings: No Interviews

There are now 14 teams in the playoffs and a wild card game on Monday night. This isn’t surprising coming from a league that can never make enough money. Honestly, the only surprise is that the owners haven’t figured out a way to have games on every day of the week. Anyway, here are a […]

Will He Stay Or Will He Go?

I wasn’t going to weigh in on Aaron Rodgers’ future until after the playoffs, but since the topic has been brought up multiple times in the past two weeks, I’ve decided to chime in. My guess, and it’s obviously only a guess, is that the greatest quarterback in the history of the Green Bay Packers […]

Return Of Mercilus Is Big News

Whitney Mercilus practiced on Thursday, and while this news didn’t generate the same kind of buzz that surrounded the returns of cornerback Jaire Alexander, left tackle David Bakhtiari, center Josh Myers, and edge rusher Za’Darius Smith, it shouldn’t be minimized. It’s probably not a coincidence that the regression of the defense started around the time […]

Packers Assistants Are Popular

Matt LaFleur has won more games in his first three seasons than any coach in National Football League history, so it’s no surprise that members of his staff are getting noticed. Offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett and passing game coordinator/quarterbacks coach Luke Getsy will soon interview with teams looking for a new head coach. If Hackett […]

Potential Impact Of Returning Stars

The Packers clinched the No. 1 seed in the NFC and compiled the best record in the league despite playing without three All-Pros and their starting center for most of the season. With their playoffs set to begin in two and a half weeks, there’s at least a chance that corner Jaire Alexander, left tackle […]

Thursday Thoughts: Nathaniel Hackett

The Packers will play their first and only cold-weather game of the regular season on Sunday night against Minnesota (talk about wasting temperatures in the single digits on the wrong opponent). Hopefully, Mother Nature will step up again in January when Arizona, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and/or Tampa Bay could be paying a visit to […]

Douglas Enjoying Fairytale Season

You watch football for 40 years and think you’ve seen everything‚Ķ and along comes Rasul Douglas. Signed off Arizona’s practice squad in early October to provide depth after All-Pro Jaire Alexander was placed on injured reserve, the veteran cornerback has intercepted five passes in 10 games, including two to clinch victories. And just last week, […]

Will The Real Defense Please Stand Up?

From Week 2 through Week 10, only once did the Packers’ defense give up more than 22 points. That excellent stretch of play had many people praising new coordinator Joe Barry and apologizing to Matt LaFleur for questioning his decision to hire the former Rams’ linebackers coach as Mike Pettine’s replacement. As it turns out, […]

Worth It Or Overpaid?

The Packers have one of the most expensive rosters in the league this season. Two players are making over $20 million a year, six are making over $9 million, and two are making over $5 million. That’s typically the cost of sustained winning in the National Football League. So are the Packers getting their money’s […]
