Tale Of The Tape: Week 2 (DET)

The Packers’ 42-21 dismantling of the Lions was coach Matt LaFleur’s eighth consecutive win against the NFC North. That, along with a 15-3 overall record, makes the 40-year-old’s first 18 games among the most successful in league history. Not bad for a guy who was interviewed by only one team following the 2018 season. And

Preview: Packers vs. Lions

Here are four big questions heading into today’s game between Green Bay and Minnesota: 1) How much will the Packers miss injured defensive lineman Kenny Clark? A lot. The run defense struggled last week, even with the Pro Bowl nose tackle on the field in the first half. Without him, Green Bay is left with

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

Tale Of The Tape: Week 1 (MIN)

With an abbreviated practice schedule and no preseason games, it was even more difficult to predict what was going to happen in week 1. That said, seeing the Packers put up 43 points and over 500 yards was still a surprise. Using enough motion to make even an experienced sailor seasick, Matt LaFleur had the

Preview: Packers vs. Vikings

Here are four big questions heading into today’s game between Green Bay and Minnesota: 1) Can the defense slow down Pro Bowl running back Dalvin Cook? I’m not sure the run defense could slow down Apple’s Tim Cook. The Packers struggled to contain Dalvin Cook (20 carries for 154 yards) at Lambeau early last season,

Preview: What To Expect In 2020

Sure, the 2019 Green Bay Packers benefited from unusually good health and a somewhat fortuitous schedule en route to the NFC Championship game, but 13-3 is still 13-3. That’s why anything less than another deep run in the playoffs would have to be considered a disappointment, especially for a team that returns all but two

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

Packers: Pros & Cons

The Green Bay Packers open the season in less than two weeks, and for a team that played in the NFC championship game less than eight months ago, hopes aren’t as high as might be expected. That’s probably because general manager Brian Gutekunst did so little in the offseason to improve the roster while other

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
