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.
The Bicycle Tradition of the Green Bay Packers is one of the best traditions in professional sports and has become a significant part of the identity of the Green Bay Packers team. I’ve heard that the tradition dates back to the Lombardi Era, but that its origin is shrouded in mystery. In truth, the tradition dates to 1958, a year before Vince Lombardi arrived in Green Bay.
Scooter McLean was the Packers Head Coach. During Training Camp, the Packers were staying at St. Norberts College in De Pere and were transported to training camp in school buses driven by designated players.
My name is David Goodner. I was twelve years old in 1958 and lived at 723 Ninth Street, only a few blocks from “New City Stadium”, now Lambeau Field. My Dad, Ted Goodner, worked on the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad and I was the oldest of five children. Dad surprised me and my ten year old brother Dale with beautiful new Schwinn Jaguar Bicycles and that gift opened the world for us. We used our new bikes to spend every morning and every afternoon that summer at the football stadium watching the Packers practice.
A lot of the talk in the national news lately has been about who is the top team in the NFC. Most pundits talk about the Vikings, the Rams and sometimes the Saints.

Questions still need to be answered about the OLB position, the veterans Clay Matthews and Nick Perry as well as up-and-comers Vince Biegel, Kyler Fackrell and Reggie Gilbert. Inside, Blake Martinez lived up to the name “Machinez” in 2017 and the Packers drafted Oren Burks in the third round who was brought in largely for his upside and ability to cover receivers. 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.
