Packers fans are all about gritty, no-nonsense football players and no one embodies that essence like John Kuhn. He’s not flashy, he’s not pretty but he is also NOT someone you want to have to deal with when it’s 3rd or even 4th down and there’s only a yard to go. John Kuhn doesn’t run the ball often, but when he is needed, he delivers. And the Packers did need him last season, especially during a playoff run in which Aaron Rodgers was bothered by a tweaked calf.

Bulaga has been a stalwart right tackle for the Packers (drafted 23rd overall in 2010) and during the times he has been injured, he has been sorely missed. Continue reading

At the end is a statement by the creator (not necessarily endorsed by this website) that you can comment on at will. I, for one, am just glad that Brett Favre is going down in history as none other than a Green Bay Packer! Here’s the cut-up: Continue reading
A continuation of the Packer Receivers of History series. To read the articles you missed, go to the Packer Receivers of History category page.
Overshadowed by the dark ages of Packer history. James Lofton’s Herculean effort as a receiver was not enough to keep the team winning much less earn it a championship bid. Still, he was one of the most amazing Packers to play the game and a awe-inspiring deep threat. Continue reading
