The pre-season starts tonight against the Eagles and things will then move quickly through the rest of the pre-season into roster cuts and the beginning of the 2017 regular season. There will be a lot to watch, though Aaron Rodgers and a few other veterans will not be among them (fine by me). But one of the things that has Packer Nation excited is the impact that the rookie draft class could have on the 2017 season. We get our first good look tonight. Which draftee do you think makes the biggest splash? Stand up and be counted in the…

The wait is over the Pack is back. Tonight, the Eagles come to Lambeau and Packer Nation gets its first look at the 90 man roster in action. Probably the biggest story-line this week has been Brett Hundley who has been taking first team reps in preparation for tonight. While the defense has really showed something during training camp, Packer Nation is excited to see how the offense operates with the second running back position still in flux and plenty of rookie talent in the stable. Here are the priorities and players that I will have my eye on tonight.…

With the off-season program officially done the Packers' players now head to their respective destinations to relax, the fans start to anticipate training camp, the beginning of the 2017 season and the chance to see how this team comes together. While for many of the rookies, there is still a lot to learn, they all will get a chance to maintain their bodies in preparation for the long, grueling season to come. Earlier this week, I broke down the rookie running back situation (focusing on the rookie running backs with video highlights) and it would be hard not to be…

Last year's running back situation left the Packers' attempts to establish the running game, at times, a crap-shoot. With Starks out and Lacy down for the count, the team really had a revolving door until Ty Montgomery stepped in and Aaron Ripkowski came on strong. Attempts to achieve greater run/pass balance looked more forced than anything. Now without Lacy, the Packers have a bevy of rookies, one of whom will be slated for the number two spot behind Monty. How do they stack up? We will discover that here. (more…)
