Today's Packernation poll is the result of a conversation I had during the draft. The question surrounded discussion of all the upheaval in the NFC North. With both the Lions and the Vikings having relatively new head coaches and now the Bears with a brand new one. The North has one team that seems to be neither in flux, nor rebuilding and that is the Green Bay Packers. (more…)

Packernation Poll: Inside Linebacker

  2 years ago     92 Views     Leave your thoughts  

The exits of Brad Jones and AJ Hawk this offseason were perhaps the most significant departures (along with Tramon Williams perhaps) for the Packers hopes of getting back to the NFC Championship to right the wrongs of last season. With BJ Raji back and new blood sweating on the field today in OTA's, Packernation should still feel good that the defense can pick up where it left off last season. But here is the question?

Last year on Memorial Day I posted in honor of my friend and serviceman John Cross (Rest in Peace). I think I will make it an annual post.

In the fourth round Thompson addressed the ILB position with Jake Ryan, OLB/ILB, from Michigan, Ryan played outside his first few years but switched over to the inside his senior year, in 12 games, making 12 starts he recorded 112 tackles, 14 TFLs, two sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception. the analyst say his weakness is he over-attacks and gets taken out of plays but I like that aggression as it brings a killer mentality to the middle of the field, will he make an impact this year?
