What to Expect From the Packers’ Passing Game This Season

Last season, the Green Bay Packers’ passing game went from one of the league’s best to one of the team’s most problematic areas on either side of the ball. While most fans expected a minor dip in production due to the preseason loss of Jordy Nelson, few predicted the straight dysfunction that ensued during the second half of the season. The passing game’s output was so poor that it begged the question of whether the Rodgers-less offense during the second half of the 2013 season was even more effective moving the ball through the air. With the 2015 offensive line…

There's been a ton a speculation rolling around Packer Nation about whether Jordy will be back to his old 2014 form again when he hits the field in September. The conversation has taken an interesting turn as the question of whether Nelson would break the 1500 yard mark. I'm going to say that he'll get close but won't break 1500 yards this coming season. However, my reasons have nothing to do with the reconstruction of his knee. (more…)

Synergy and the Push Pull Effect of Two Returning Starters

The oft-quoted defenition of "synergy" is that the "whole is greater than the simple sum of its parts". There are a lot of ways this applies to football. An offensive line that has continuity is greater than the sum of it's parts. A wide reciever corps, working in perfect concert, can be extremely effective even if the individual players are little more than average. A great quarterback can make the Hall of Fame even though he never had a stellar cast of wide receivers around him. Today, I want to talk about a push-pull effect that the Packers offense is…

A Three-Way Race?

Everybody knows that winning the division is job one in the NFL and within the division, no game is a gimme regardless of the opponent. So nobody is going to say that any game against a 2016 rival will be a given, certainly after last season when we lost to each division rival at home. But on the other hand, 2016 is a new season and the Packers look forward to having Jordy Nelson back and a fit Eddie Lacy along with Jared Cook to complement Aaron Rodgers on an offense that came within inches of going to the NFC Championship…

Farewell to Megatron: Have A Read And SHARE It Out PackerNation

  1 year ago     121 Views     4 Comments  

It is rare to highlight a player from another team on a Packers fanpage...Megatron is one of those players (Barry Sanders is the only other Lions player I can think of). Announcing his retirement this week, Megatron changes the face of the Lions and, in turn, the face of the NFC North. While guys like Sam Shields breathe a sigh of relief, guys like Matthew Stafford have to wonder where a replacement...nay, a reasonable facsimile of such a great player will be found. We want to let PackerNation give its personal respects below. (more…)
