GPN “Would You Rather” POLL

  2 years ago     203 Views     Leave your thoughts  

OK Packernation, just for fun we are starting a new series of polls called "would you rather" polls. In these polls you are faced with a dilemma and you have to choose one or the other. Some of these will be possible, most will be impossible. Some will be serious, most will be completely off the wall (we don't want to jinx anyone). They all will make you think because you HAVE TO CHOOSE ONE. You can talk about it with your friends, sure. But in the end the choice is up to YOU. So without further ado, (and just…

Regardless of the fact that the collective bargaining agreement allows less than two weeks (13 days) worth of practice days, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy sees coherence and culture as more important than practice today. He has cancelled practice in lieu of team building activities, which will come as no surprise for fans. McCarthy realizes that this game is won by teams and a team is a culture of individuals who care about one another. Mixing up the groups in a team building activity such as the one he has planned for today highlights his focus on the culture of…

The offense has been the strength of this team for years.

With Nelson having clean up surgery on his hip…

Packers mini-camp begins today and with all the installations in the team can begin the process of fine-tuning their roster and developing the 2015 team. So what is the difference between OTA's and mini-camp? One word...MANDATORY. But that is about the only difference, as there won't be contact and the players will not be in pads for the three-day camp. So no blocking, no tackling, and no bump-and-run coverage huh...what can a team get out of such activities.

Why I am a Packers Fan

People become Packers fans for a lot of reasons. I hope at the end of this post that you will tell me how you became one. After the draft, I asked the question (to the chagrin of many Packers fans) "How many of you have become Packers fans this weekend". The reason for the question was that many people become Packers fans when a college player they love is drafted by the Pack. I don't care how anyone becomes a Packers fan...I love all Packers fans regardless of how they became one. Here is how I became one. (more…)
