The Packers’ 2018 roster is set (well…until waiver claims and any final trades get done) and there were some things I loved and some I hated. Here is a “Love it or Leave it” roster cuts edition, I will start with “Leave it”: More
2018 Packers Off-Season
With roster cuts happening even as we speak, I thought I would throw my predictions in the mix. Word that the Bears are acquiring Khalil Mack may be part of the conversation and in particular, incite the Packers to keep more O-linemen and/or blocking TE’s. We will be finding out momentarily as the wait will soon be over and the roster will (for the most part) be decided.
As I write this, news is breaking that the Bears have brokered a deal with the Raiders to acquire Khalil Mack. The home opener just got more interesting as Mack will make an immediate impact once the deal is done.

But one of the Packers’ linebackers also had a good 2017 and got little credit for it. Let’s talk about the Packers’ “forgotten” linebacker. More
The NFC North looks to be one of the most competitive in the NFC if not the entire NFL this coming season. Everyone in Packer Nation knows the moves the Packers have made and many are likely quite excited. But it is a lot more difficult to keep up with the off-season moves of the other teams in the North so we at GPN decided to do that work for you as the Packers’ success in the Division is largely indicative of their success overall. Let’s take a quick look around the North and check out the competition with a view toward a better understanding of the division as a whole. More
DeShone Kizer had a very lackluster stint with the Cleveland Browns. Was that because the quarterback wasn’t ready for the NFL or was it just because the hype was overinflated? Today we discuss some thoughts on the subject.
