I've not written a post for a while but feel the need to vent, All the chatter about Thompson dabbling in free agency has me thinking could this be the year? Rodgers came out and kind of put the head honchos on the spot by hinting it's time to get aggressive with some top help. The release of Shields and Starks opens up a big chunk of cap space.

The rumors about the Packers being more active in free agency have a lot of people excited. Of course, we all know that Packers' GM Ted Thompson rarely gets his feet wet in the initial frenzy where most of the game-changers go and many are overpaid and underperform.

The Packers look to keep Odell Beckham's off-season party hopes alive with a win over the Giants on Sunday afternoon. But will the Giants come into Lambeau loose and steal yet another one from the Green Bay Packers? The home-field advantage has not been as strong of late for the Packers, but Aaron Rodgers is playing at an MVP level. The Packers' defense, however, has several question marks in the injury category, most critical of which is the status of Quinten Rollins but the status of Joe Thomas, the Packers' ILB thumper is still in question too. So the formula…
