Some of the most important observances of training camp. Continue reading
Well #packernation, you wanted it and you got it. Jordy got his deal! Reportedly a four year deal worth $39 M with 14.2 million guaranteed.
We posted a couple days ago why Jordy should get exactly what he got today: Watch some highlights and use the comment section below to TELL US WHAT YOU THINK!
The NFL today called Jordy Nelson possibly the NFL’s most underrated player…duh! Packernation has known that the chemistry between Rodgers and Nelson is nothing short of stellar and not too easy to find. Ted Thompson and Co. have labeled the signing of Nelson a priority and now we are getting some idea of what Nelson is looking for. Continue reading
OK #packernation…listen…really close. You may have to open your front door and hold a hand to your ear. Or if you are a member of #packernation abroad, you may just have to listen with your heart that pumps green and gold blood through your veins. That sound is the sound of an air horn signaling the start of Packers Training Camp 2014! Continue reading
When the Green Bay Packers lost James Jones in free agency, it was a concern. While Jarrett Boykin had performed admirably and with Randall Cobb recently returned to put the dagger in the Chicago Bears (watch it yet again…here) the Packers had playmakers at one, two and three…but with Jermichael presumably not coming back, the loss of Jones had the potential to thin the corps of weapons for Aaron Rodgers. GPN’s own Michael Davidsen drew attention to this danger, and the opportunity it presented for young challengers, before the draft. Continue reading
Well training camps have already begun for the Bears and the Vikes and Packers players report today. Football is almost here! One of the most exciting battles in this year’s training camp is the battle for tight end. That position was left wide open with the injury to Jermichael Finley and heated up when the Packers drafted Richard Rodgers and signed undrafted Colt Lyerla. Continue reading
What was previously Potts Avenue in Green Bay Wisconsin has become Mike McCarthy Way. The honor of having a street in Green Bay named after a head coach has been reserved for coaches who bring Lombardi trophies back to Titletown. Mike McCarthy has earned this honor. But here’s what surprised me:
Training camp hasn’t even begun yet, so we’re basing all our projections on what shows on paper. Still, the 2014 Packers should be a much improved team. That’s exciting to me because they were a pretty good team in 2013 despite some serious injuries.
There are three key stats that I think the Packers will improve on that I think will make a world of difference in 2014.
When I last mentioned the national news I was critical of their lack of depth in understanding our Packers team. Ok…Ok…today they got it right and it is important to give credit where credit is due. Going into training camp is one of the last chances we will have to revel in the victories of LAST season. But this one is SO worth it! Continue reading
Well…well…well…Madden has chosen Ha Ha Clinton Dix as its number 8 rookie this year. And Curtis Conway on NFL Network has named him the best player on the Packers team besides Aaron Rodgers…Ed Lacy…get it…Ed Lacy…WOW!!! Continue reading
In 2013 the safety position was, without a doubt, the weakest position on the Packer defense. The whole lot of them didn’t muster a single interception. The Packers solution to the dilemna, in part, was drafting Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, but Clinton-Dix hasn’t been thrown in with the starters on defense like Morgan Burnett was his rookie season. Plus, Micah Hyde has been coming along and the coaches are speaking very positively about him.
So, which of these two guys will be the Packers’ solution at safety in 2014? Continue reading
