5 Mini-camp Mentions

  2 years ago     249 Views     1 Comment  

Packers mini-camp begins today and with all the installations in the team can begin the process of fine-tuning their roster and developing the 2015 team. So what is the difference between OTA's and mini-camp? One word...MANDATORY. But that is about the only difference, as there won't be contact and the players will not be in pads for the three-day camp. So no blocking, no tackling, and no bump-and-run coverage huh...what can a team get out of such activities. There is one very important thing that teams get out of mandatory mini-camps across the NFL. (more…)

Why I am a Packers Fan

  2 years ago     2308 Views     58 Comments  

People become Packers fans for a lot of reasons. I hope at the end of this post that you will tell me how you became one. After the draft, I asked the question (to the chagrin of many Packers fans) "How many of you have become Packers fans this weekend". The reason for the question was that many people become Packers fans when a college player they love is drafted by the Pack. I don't care how anyone becomes a Packers fan...I love all Packers fans regardless of how they became one. Here is how I became one. (more…)

The Second-Year Player that I am MOST Excited About

There has been a lot of talk in Packernation about second year players. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Davante Adams, and Richard Rodgers all made an impact last season and if they take a leap this year, could be special. Adams in particular has Aaron Rodgers raving after OTA's, and at 6'2 and 216 pounds, Adams could add yet another receiving threat - this time, throughout the season. Last year we saw Adams explode when teams like the Patriots and Cowboys paid too much attention to Nelson and Cobb. Richard Rodgers had some good games too and Ha Ha shored up the…

The Packers Most Critical Game of 2015

  2 years ago     121 Views     2 Comments  

A lot of people in Packernation will have the week two matchup against the Seattle Seahawks circled on their calendars. For that matter...a lot of Packers players may have that matchup circled...those that are still with the team anyway. Mike Daniels has said that he is still mad about that loss and that he went back and was particularly upset about the stupid penalty he had in that game. The guy's a beast and a leader...takin' responsibility. Earlier, we polled Packernation to find out what divisional opponent might be able to give the Packers fits. But not everyone thinks that the Seahawks…

Pack Signs “The Big Kowalski”

  2 years ago     105 Views     4 Comments  

The Packers have been a leading team in successfully developing un-drafted free agents for a long time. Yesterday the Pack announced that they had signed Villanova tackle Vince Kowalski. At 6'4" and 305 pounds, Kowalski has the frame to add depth to the Packers line while he develops as a pro. Kowalski is also durable, starting every game of his four year career at 'Nova. He keeps a wide base and finishes plays. All-in-all, big Kowalski is an interesting prospect on a team that has its starting O-line intact but needs to continue to look to add depth in case…
