Pre-Camp Preview: Running Backs

This is the second in a series of position-by-position previews of the Green Bay Packers following the OTAs and minicamps. Training camp begins on July 26. JOEL BOUAGNON – His college tape is so impressive you wonder how the former Northern Illinois star went undrafted in 2017 – until you check out his 40 time

D-lightful Start To Season

The Packers’ defense often resembles the Bad News Bears, but it usually looks like the ’85 Chicago Bears against Seattle. Sunday was no exception as Mike Daniels and the front seven dominated and helped hold quarterback Russell Wilson and the rest of the Seahawks’ offense to 9 points and 225 yards. There’s no question the

Bold Predictions For ’17

A prediction is bold until it doesn’t come true; then it becomes stupid. But hey, that’s not going to stop me from making some for the 2017 season.

With that in mind, here’s my annual list of the 10 most irreplaceable Packers heading into training camp:

Positional Analysis: Running Back

This is the second of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason. Starter (C+): Ty Montgomery made the switch from wide receiver after injuries sidelined Eddie Lacy and James Starks and quickly stabilized the position. The second-year pro from Stanford averaged an impressive 5.9 yards on 77 carries and showed surprisingly good instincts. He ran with patience and was

Time To Use Full Monty

A player who wasn’t even a running back when Green Bay and Dallas met in the middle of October could be the key to the rematch in the divisional round of the playoffs. Ty Montgomery, who made the switch from wide receiver around Halloween, needs to make an impact on Sunday – especially with Jordy

Veteran Receiver Needed ASAP

General manager Ted Thompson almost never looks outside the organization to fill a hole on the roster, but he’s going to have to add a veteran wide receiver. That should’ve been obvious even before Randall Cobb left Saturday night’s game with a shoulder injury. With Jordy Nelson out for the season, the offense needs someone
