Scouting Report: Whitney Mercilus

The Packers signed Whitney Mercilus to a 1-year deal on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after the veteran outside linebacker was released by the rebuilding Houston Texans. The 31-year-old has 57 sacks in 134 games (102 starts), including three this…

Thursday Thoughts: Run Defense

If you told me 10 days ago that an NFL head coach would be fired because he sent racist, misogynistic, and homophobic emails, the Raiders’ Jon Gruden would’ve been one of my top three guesses. And as the news broke…

No Downside To Smith Signing

In one of the team’s biggest in-season acquisitions in 25 years, the Packers signed Jaylon Smith on Thursday. The former Pro Bowl inside linebacker was surprisingly released by the Dallas Cowboys earlier in the week. Smith was with Matt LaFleur…

Thursday Thoughts: Round 3

The last time I went into a season feeling good about Green Bay’s defense, Barack Obama was in his first term as president, Esperanza Spalding was named Best New Artist at the Grammys, and The King’s Speech won an Oscar…

Thursday Thoughts: Jace’s Fate

Green Bay has 13 players from SEC schools on their 53-man roster, but none are from Alabama. Last week’s release of punter JK Scott made that a reality for the first time in years. Here are three more Packers-related thoughts…

Keeping The Dream Alive

The Packers completed their practice squad by re-signing 15 players who were released by the team on cutdown day and adding one new face. Is this the start of something big for these young men, or just a temporary reprieve…
