Wesseling on Peppers: I saw an article from Chris Wessleing come across the NFL app today about how Julius Peppers was excited to play opposite Clay Matthews as the best compliment he has ever had. Great article and the point was that Julius had spoken up...but a lot of us in Packernation have been excited about that for awhile. But as the Summer wears on and football gets closer...and closer...and closer...the excitement has got to grow. Packers fans...this is gonna be big! But that's just it...Packers fans have been excited about Julius Peppers and Clay Matthews since the signing, the…

Julius Peppers: Will He Have More Sacks or Assists?

D-Backs: Plug and Play for Green Bay?

Well, a lot of the off-season talk and certainly much of the draft talk for the coming months centers around one of the Packers' most glaring needs - that of a cornerback or safety. While draft speculation is fun (and to some extent...irresistable even when the draft is FOREVER away) much can change before the Packers pick at number 21 in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Scenarios will change and though we know that Ted Thompson doesn't draft by need, getting a solid defensive back in this year's draft, somebody who can be "plug and play" so…

For several seasons now, Dom Capers has been under fire. Packer fans everywhere are calling for his head on a silver platter. I think that's an over reaction. Here's why... (more…)
