Free Agency Part I: Which FA’s Should the Packers PURSUE

Justin HoustonAs always, free agency is a big part of constructing next year’s team. Who to sign, who to let walk, how to balance cap space against team needs and who can we replace in the draft. Ted Thompson is not a big mover in free agency and looks to sign his players first. The reasoning behind this is that you know your players much better than you know players from another team, which makes you more likely to be able to predict their work ethic and how they will perform under a big new contract.  Continue reading

Eddy Lacy brings the thunder.

The Packers opponents…recently set by the league constitute the Packers next shot at going the distance, righting wrongs…and beating the Seahawks.

Who do you think will be the toughest challenge for the Packers next season?  Continue reading

Looking forward to 2015

The management will be making some tough decisions in the next few weeks about free agents, etc. The one that most fans are worried about is Randall Cobb, the way he played this year made him a high priority as a slot receiver but the real question is how high did he make his price tag? Ted Thompson is the best at keeping the Packers salary cap in order but with Cobb’s play this year he may have raised his price tag too high for the Packers to retain him. They have other players like Bulaga/Williams and House they need to make decisions on as well. While I would love to see Cobb stay in 2015 I would rather see them retain the big guy to protect Rodgers even more. Bulaga is a big reason the Packers offense was great this year, we all saw what life was like without him when he went out for a couple games and Derrick Sherrod filled in! Continue reading

Remember Packernation…This Guy Is Coming Back!

imgresI can’t wait to see him healthy and after a whole season working out and stayin’ hungry! How do ya like our receiver corps now…With Jordy, hopefully Randall signed (pay the man!), Adams coming on and this guy. If the Packers can get a stud TE and maybe ILB in the draft it would be a great way to begin righting the wrongs of the 2014 season-ending meltdown. Next Christmas…when the Jared jewelry commercials are out…Packers fans will have a very different thing in mind when they hear the words…”HE WENT TO JARED!”
