Other than Letroy Guion's gaff with the law this week, the Packers players are presumably enjoying their relaxation without breaking the law. This player relaxation time is important to the team as once the end of July comes, there is no turning back and the football season begins. Last week, we talked about the running backs, today, I want to talk about the O-line. (more…)

Packers Playing to Damarious Randall’s Strength

Damarious Randall had a rough year last year and the Packers will need to him to improve if they want to have success in 2017. There is reason to believe in improved play based on his health alone.

The Packers' 12 personnel group was one that the Packers want to use more in 2017. Last season they used it with some success at times but with the addition of Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks, it would seem that group should be improved from last year. But the passing game is not the only aspect of the offense that will benefit from these additions. The Packers like to run a "power play action" in obvious running downs and this play should have a chance to be successful in 2017. One example from 2016 came in the week 7 matchup…
