If You Can’t Beat ‘Em…Join ‘Em

I cannot say enough for the extra dimension that Julius Peppers is going to add to the Packers' defense. Peppers is a "specimen" according to AJ Hawk and the players are saying he moves like a young player. With a healthy Clay Matthews and Peppers on the field, offensive coaches are coordinators will be hard pressed to find a solution to the quarterback pressure we will bring. But some may still wonder if the years Peppers has on his body won't catch up with him. I think Peppers is in the right place and am convinced that this season we…

Well, Jermichael Finley will undergo testing on his neck today, according to Tyler Dunne and I get the feeling that most Packers fans are not really holding their breath.

Even though it is painful to read, most post-draft grades are going to be given solely on the basis of what needs each team filled and with how good a player(s) they filled them. In packernation, we all know that Ted Thompson does NOT draft for need unless two players are very closely ranked...then he will take need over best player available. Thompson made it clear that this is exactly the way this year's draft played out, explaining why the Packers ended the draft with three wide receiver choices as that was the deepest position in this year's draft. There…
