The Packers signed both of their No. 1 picks on May 6. That’s a far cry from the days – not too long ago – when the biggest story in late July was whether a team’s top pick would report to training camp on time. The National Football League doesn’t always do things to improve […]

Many fans don’t want to trade Aaron Rodgers because they’re deathly afraid of the Packers becoming one of those sad-sack franchises that can’t find a quarterback for decades. Hell, the Packers were one of those sad-sack franchises from the time Bart Starr retired in 1970 until Brett Favre arrived via a trade with the Falcons […]

Monday Musings: Love’s Debut

It was great to see fans back at Lambeau Field on Saturday night, but I can’t help but think Green Bay had a pretty nice advantage playing in empty stadiums last season. Lambeau is the most iconic stadium in the NFL, but it’s hardly one of the noisiest. And while the Packers are a superb […]
