So we've known since December who the Packers opponents will be and whether we will play them home or away, but tonight the NFL released the actual game schedules during a 3 hour special on the Network. Here is what I got from the Packers schedule: NFC North rivals: Packers fans know that Green Bay will play some good quarterbacks twice each this season against the Lions and the Bears...and after the draft, the Vikings may have a new quarterback as well...and yes, it makes us nervous because of the underachieving of our defensive backfield last season. But with some…

Datone Jones: Good Complement to Matthews & Peppers?

  3 years ago     84 Views     2 Comments  

Coach McCarthy set a high bar for Datone Jones coming into the 2014 season. The reason the Packers selected Jones with their first pick was because he was supposed to give Dom Capers more flexibility and creativity on defense. This is the year the Packers see that creativity come to fruition. With the addition of Julius Peppers and presumed health of Clay Matthews, Dom Capers will be able to release the hounds this year. If, as many Packers fans hope, Ted Thompson is able to draft some help for the backend of the defense, we could see a big improvement…

Word came out this week of a reunion that might have happened between Brett Favre and The Green Bay Packers last season, had not his Oak Grove high school team kept winning. It seems so many years ago that Packers GM Ted Thompson committed the unpardonable sin of trading Brett Favre. It isn't quite so far in the distant past that Brett Favre committed the unpardonable sin of going to the Vikings. But for one of the best quarterbacks the league has ever seen to NOT be reconciled with his team is the greatest sin of all. Let's remember the…

Ok packer nation... the draft is just a few weeks away and what have we heard from Ted Thompson? Practically nothing. It's frustrating, I know. We hear nothing about who the Packers are interested in, who has been interviewed or worked out by the Packers and it's frustrating because we want to know. Especially as the actual draft day steadily approaches. And what makes it worse is that, while we all know who we think the Packers could and should draft...we all know the draft comes down to the final board of TT and his minions. Ted Thompson has a…

Abnormally Shallow Wide Receiver Position Poses Both Risk and Opportunity

  3 years ago     70 Views     Leave your thoughts  

It was inevitable that James Jones would find his way out of Green Bay before the end of his career; the question was more about when it would happen. Jones had drawn little interest in the off-cycle free agency period of 2011 and was ultimately brought back to Green Bay at a bargain. History did not repeat itself this March as a desperate Raiders club with a soft spot for Packer players gobbled Jones up for much more than he’s worth. The No.3 wide receiver spot is now Jarrett Boykin’s to lose – something that should excite Packers fans, rather…
