Gutekunst Made Right Call On Jones

The Packers must’ve thought long and hard about using the franchise tag on Aaron Jones, the team’s best running back since Ahman Green. The cost wasn’t unreasonable ($8.6 million), and the offense is clearly better with No. 33 on the…

Thursday Thoughts: Ervin To Return?

I find it interesting that franchise quarterbacks Deshaun Watson and to a lesser extent Russell Wilson have spent the past few months complaining about their organizations and contemplating life elsewhere, and yet Aaron Rodgers receives more criticism from the national…

Funchess Agrees To Pay Cut

Wide receiver Devin Funchess, who opted out of last season due to the coronavirus, has agreed to a $750,000 pay cut and will return to the Green Bay Packers in 2021. Funchess hasn’t played a snap in the NFL since…

Monday Musings: Tonyan & Analytics

General manager Brian Gutekunst spoke to the press for 15 minutes on Tuesday, and he paid homage to the late Ted Thompson by saying nothing of interest. If you’re a fan over 40, you probably miss the far more loquacious…

Monday Musings: Life After Linsley

There’s no NFL Combine this year due to the coronavirus, and as much as I miss football, I can’t say I’ll miss watching young men in shorts run 40 yards and lift weights. I might be stuck in the house,…

Monday Musings: Same Old Problem

I enjoyed my second NFL-free Sunday since early September. Instead of cursing Mike Pettine, it was nice just relaxing on the couch while not giving a shit who won the Virginia/Carolina game. That said, I still couldn’t stop thinking about…

Thursday Thoughts: Funchess’ Future

The football season officially ended in Tampa on Sunday, but for me, it ended two weeks earlier at Lambeau Field. Since then, I’ve been binge-watching a great show called Halt and Catch Fire on Netflix, and of course, thinking about…

Monday Musings: Defensive Talent

It was difficult to pay attention to the Super Bowl for a couple of reasons. The first were the two teams playing. Choosing between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is like choosing between a root canal…

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….
