5 Mini-camp Mentions

  2 years ago     259 Views     1 Comment  

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.

A.M. Quickslant: Poll Results on NFC North Competition

  2 years ago     118 Views     2 Comments  

Yesterday's Packernation poll asked the question, "Who can give the Packers a run in the NFC North?" The response was interesting to say the least (as it always is when Packernation gets talking about the team). I was interested to see that a question sent in to "Ask Vic" asked the same question. You can see his response here. Even with all the shakeup in the North in the last few years, there are still those who believe that divisional rivals who know how the Packers operate can still be thorns in our side.  (more…)
