Has Tramon William’s Play Declined?

  4 years ago     81 Views     1 Comment  

There’s been a bit of discussion about inconsistency in Tramon’s play over the course of the last couple of seasons. Mike listed him as #8 in his Ranking the Top 15 Players on the Packers article. While Tramon struggled mightily in some of those games, the stats tell a different story. (more…)

Nick Perry: Shifting Into High Gear

I've been wondering what Nick Perry will bring to the Packer defense in his sophomore season. Technically speaking, he isn't a rookie any more. However, he spent most of last season on the sidelines, so he certainly doesn't have the experience most rookies have of at least taking part in practice. Still, Perry has had a year to absorb the defensive play book and study film and that alone should make him a better player out of the gates. Let's take a look at some clips of Nick from last season.

Smith is the logical choice to line up next to A.J. Hawk in the Green Bay 3-4 alignment, but there's another guy on the roster who I feel could make an impact in Bishop's place. That player is Erik Walden. With rookie Nick Perry replacing Walden on the outside, the former starter actually has better size for an inside 'backer in a 3-4 and his athleticism would be…

Hargrove’s Return Could Spark the Packers Down the Stretch

The Packers will have to do without Anthony Hargrove for the first eight games of the season this year. While there's little doubt the defensive line could really use his contribution in the first half of the season, I'm wondering if there is a surprise benefit to Hargrove not hitting the field until the Arizona game on November 4th.
