Well with the regular season just 11 days away, Packernation is starting to set its sites on the Seattle Seahawks. This week's preseason game will be one last chance for the young guys to show that they belong on this team but the cuts have already begun. There could be no tougher test for the Green Bay Packers, no better team by which to measure...than the Seahawks. This will be an epic game. Of all the things that the Packers did NOT show in the preseason, here is one thing that they DID show: (more…)

Well the Packers second preseason game against the Rams is almost here and Packernation looks forward to watching their team play a dry¬†game this time. The Rams will be a serious test for the Pack when starters meet starters. This is a team that has not made the playoffs since 2004, right about the time the balance of power shifted to the Seahawks. Now with the 49'ers also recently winning in the playoffs, the Rams have all but drifted into the Mississippi and floated away into the gulf of Mexico to NFL fans. But this is a good team with…

Well, the preseason has begun and the Packers have their first preseason game this coming Saturday against the Titans. While preseason games are not the most exciting games, I am SO pumped for this game for a couple reasons: It is the first chance to see the Packers in action I'm gonna be at the game! Everybody says that the preseason doesn't matter...WRONG. While it is true that the scores of the preseason games don't matter and the wins and losses make no difference whatsoever, the games themselves are critical to the final evaluation of the players. Now, am I…

Quickslant: BJ’s Best Camp?

  3 years ago     60 Views     1 Comment  

A lot of Packers fans were not high on BJ Raji this offseason, stating that he did little or nothing during the season to make the case that he should be re-signed. The thinking was that he would cost too much, had done little, and that there would be a replacement available when the Packers picked in the first round. I was NOT one of those people even though I too was a bit disappointed in BJ's performance. When news of the contract came out, I was happier still because one year for 4 million with $500,000 guaranteed was much…
