Word is just now coming out that Jordy Nelson has been lost for the 2015 season. Packernation will be in shock and disbelief for awhile but this is not without precedent for the Packers.

The Packers' matchup against the Steelers will go a long way in determining a lot of young players' futures on this team. Several rookies put in showings against the Patriots and now have to show that they can be consistent and continue to grow. Other rookies have yet to make a case for themselves and all the rookies will want to shine on special teams. Here are a couple things I will be looking for in this game.  (more…)
