Quickslant: Circle The Middle of the Field

While I believe the Packers have had an admirable off-season thus far, there is still one big question mark for this team. The off-season has gone the Packers' way to a great extent...first of all, in that Jordy Nelson got (is gettting) healthy. Then, the addition of Jared Cook (yes, he will be fine) and the work that Eddie Lacy has done to get his body right makes me certain that this year's team will be as formidable as any we have seen in the Aaron Rodgers era. While I have few worries on the offensive side of the ball,…

In recent years, the Packers have focused on improving their defense through…

PackerNation POLL: 3 Confounding Factors for the Packers’ Pick

Prognosticators and pundits alike are squarely focused on the upcoming draft in 43 days. With free agency once again coming and going, the Packers' initial pick, in particular could be crucial but rather than coming into greater focus, the Packers draft situation seems rather foggy. Several questions come into play and must be on the mind of many in PackerNation. While we know that Ted Thompson will be focused on getting his board right, he is very good at keeping that information close to his vest, and that leaves a bunch of prospects out there that the Packers could pick…
