2017 Draft

Damarious Randall had a rough year last year and the Packers will need to him to improve if they want to have success in 2017. There is reason to believe in improved play based on his health alone. With an off-season to recover, Randall should be in full health as the season begins. But there is another reason that Packer Nation should see improvement out of Randall. (more…)

Heart of the D-Line Looks Strong

There is a reason for the cliche' "The game is won or lost in the trenches". The Packers for the last few years have relied on Mike Daniels to head up the defensive line and give it the attitude and pocket crushing presence that they need. To that mix they have added guys here or there from free agency and the draft.

While for many of the rookies, there is still a lot to learn, they all will get a chance to maintain their bodies in preparation for the long, grueling season to come. Earlier this week, I broke down the rookie running back situation (focusing on the rookie running backs with video highlights) and it would be hard not to be…

Amp’ed Up Athleticism is a Great Start to Training Camp

The Packers will now take their final break before training camp. One recurring theme in the press conferences that was also highlighted by coach McCarthy's presser earlier today was the fact that the athleticism of this year's team "jumps off the page". Packer Nation has seen this in several players but as a group, this team could become the kind that can push defenses with the hurry-up offense early and on defense, can bring it at the end of games. Now, admittedly, there is much more to a great football team than raw athleticism but the game is still made…
