Packer Nation Poll: NFC North Record

  3 weeks ago     71 Views     2 Comments  

The NFC North sent two teams to the playoffs last year, one of which made it all the way to the NFC Championship in the Green Bay Packers. With training camp at hand, the Packers look to put together a team that can repeat the successes of last year without the early offensive disconnect and through-line of injuries and bad play from the defensive backfield. Several veteran players will be missing from training camp this year leaving a gap in leadership. However, several free agents have been added and an infusion of speed on the defense has combined to provide…

2 Improvements That Should Make Aaron Rodgers Smile

Down the stretch in 2016, the Packers' offense was one of the most dynamic in the league. The fail in Atlanta signaled the need for better defense as much as anything else. The offense faltered also, and pass protection won't come easy against the Falcons this year either. With the Seahawks week one and the Falcons week two, there is a need for an upgrade in pass protection and emphasize the short pass to get Aaron Rodgers going early. If the Packers get off to a fast start they can surely be one of the best teams in the NFC…

It's time for another Packer Nation head-to-head poll. One of the most exciting players that the Packers drafted this year is Josh Jones.

At 6'1 5/8" and 220 pounds with 3.4 speed, Jones is the total package. As a "replacement for Micah" though, he won't have the veteran savvy so his response time may be a little slower right out of the gate. So all this…

How big of a difference can Kenny Clark make?  I think it can be a profound difference for a defense that needed backfield help and got it, but also has the benefit in Kenny Clark of an up-and-comer on the Packers defensive line. There are many reasons to believe that Clark will be better than last year, there are reasons to believe that an improvement from Clark can benefit the defense as a whole. Let's dive right into some of them now.  (more…)

The Journey Begins in a Month

Exactly one month from the start of training camp I think there is as much excitement for this Packers team as I have seen in a long time. The offense, in particular, makes everyone in Packer Nation slide a little closer to the edge of their seat. The addition of Bennett and Kendricks, along with Evans have taken away the fear of veteran exits and enhanced them with important additions. Along with that, the returning players, and the rookies that the Packers drafted at the running back and the wide receiver positions should bode well for the offense. But there…
