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:   The end result of this play wasn’t pretty, but it sure was

And Then There Were 53

The Green Bay Packers will have to be down to 53 players by 4 ET on Saturday afternoon. Without being able to attend practices or watch preseason games, some of my projections are based completely off a player’s college tape. This makes the task far more challenging, but what the heck, I’m still going to

Doing The O-Line Shuffle

The most surprising news to emerge from the first few practices of training camp is the legitimate competition occurring on the right side of the offensive line. Veterans Billy Turner, Rick Wagner, and Lane Taylor are battling for two starting spots. On Saturday, Turner opened at right tackle and Taylor at right guard. Two days

Galeai Tops List Of Longshots

The Green Bay Packers signed over 100 undrafted rookies since 2010, and quite a few have become either stop-gap starters or useful backups. That list includes Don Barclay, Lane Taylor, Geronimo Allison, Tyler Lancaster, Mike Pennel, LaDarius Gunter, Kentrell Brice, and Raven Greene. But the only UDFA from last decade to become a quality starter

Remember The ‘2 Week Rule’

The way many members of the media gushed over Montravious “Reggie White II” Adams and Josh “Ronnie Lott Jr.” Jones in recent summers made me a bit nostalgic for the 80s. That was the decade I had my first beer, went to my first Springsteen concert, bought my first car and held my first real

Key Players To Watch

The Green Bay Packers open training camp this week, and if I were allowed to watch practices, here are the six players I’d be keeping an especially close eye on: RASHAN GARY – The exodus of Kyler Fackrell moves last year’s No. 1 pick up a spot on the depth chart, and that means he’ll

$ome Big Decisions Coming

General manager Brian Gutekunst didn’t have many difficult decisions to make in regard to his own free agents the past three offseasons, but that will change in 2021. Five of the Packers’ best players and potential No. 2 wide receiver Devin Funchess are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents next March. The following is a

Scouting Report: Kamal Martin

“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” is an old proverb that GM Brian Gutekunst obviously took to heart in April’s draft. Only two years after trading up for inside linebacker Oren Burks, he picked an almost identical player in Kamal Martin. Both players are listed at 6-foot-3. Both players were used extensively

All’s Not ‘Right’ With O-Line

The right side of the Green Bay Packers’ offensive line has been a strength for the past 25 years. From Earl Dotson and Marco Rivera through Mark Tauscher and Josh Sitton through Bryan Bulaga and T.J. Lang, superstar quarterbacks Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers seldom had to worry about facing frontside pressure. But that probably

Heir To 12 Can Wait

Some experts believe the Packers will use the 30th pick in the upcoming draft on a quarterback, and they often use what happened in 2005 as foreshadowing. That’s the year former general manager Ted Thompson selected Aaron Rodgers late in the first round. It does make sense. Brett Favre was 36 at the time, and
