The Packers Cornerback Battle

While the Green Bay Packers certainly have some positions up for grabs this offseason – the entire offensive line, two defensive line spots, two outside linebacker spots, and fullback are in play, as well as who starts at safety alongside Nick Collins – there is one position that is more intriguing to me than any […]

Aaron Kampman to OLB

Aaron Kampman

Green Bay Packers coach Mike “Smartest Guy in the Room” McCarthy confirmed (sort of) Aaron Kampman will be moving from defensive end to outside linebacker in new defensive coordinator Dom Capers 3-4 defense, today. “Well, it depends on what personnel we have on the field. When we line up in the first base defense, yeah, […]

Packers Hire Trgovac, Peppers Coming Next?

Mike Trgovac

In a move that we normally wouldn’t even both to speculate about or address, the Green Bay Press Gazette reported that the Packers hired Mike Trgovac as their defensive line coach today. The reason this may be significant is two-fold. First, Trgovac was Carolina’s defensive coordinator for the past six seasons. He turned down a contract […]

Dom Capers and the 3-4 – A Good Fit?

Dom Capers

After an unprecedented purge of defensive coaching staff, after much hemming and hawing and after much speculation, the Green Bay Packers have settled on former Houston Texans coach Dom Capers as their new defensive coordinator. I’m not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, I like the hire. Dom Capers brings the type […]

Dom Capers Is the Man

The Green Bay Packers have finally settled on a defensive coordinator, and his name is Dom Capers. Anyone who knows anything about football will recall that Capers coached the Carolina Panthers from 1995-98. And anyone who knows anything about the Packers will recall the Packers handled Capers’ Panthers in the 1996 NFC Championship game. Capers […]

Packers Purge Defensive Coaching Staff

Bob Sanders

Bob Sanders has been fired as the Green Bay Packers’ defensive coordinator – something that doesn’t come as much of a surprise after special teams coach Mike Stock retired on Friday. Something that is somewhat more of a surprise, however, is the Packers’ entire defensive coaching staff was canned along with Sanders, with the exception […]

Stock “Retires,” Sanders Next?

Mike Stock

Late Friday evening, Green Bay Packers’ special teams coach Mike Stock retired. Or, “retired.” This doesn’t come as a surprise. The Packers special teams were putrid this past season in nearly every aspect. Fans had been calling for Stock’s job, along with that of defensive coordinator Bob Sanders, for some time. What does come as […]

Vikings vs. Packers: Who Sucked And Who Didn’t

Nick Barnett has been lost for the season.

Every week the Green Bay Packers are starting to look more and more like a team that simply won’t live up to expectations. Yesterday, the Packers lost yet another close game to an inferior opponent, this time, 28-27 to the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers should be better than this. Maybe it’s time to accept that […]

Packers vs. Colts Notes and Favre vs. Green Bay Becomes ESPN vs. Fox

Peyton Manning crying

Before I get to the mind numbing douchebaggery that is the latest Brett Favre fiasco, let me share a few quick observations and opinions regarding the Green Bay Packers’ 34-14 dismantling of the Indianapolis Colts. Aaron Rodgers continues to impress the NFL world, Packers fans and most importantly, his teammates. Not only has he played […]

Green Bay Packers – Not Even Average

Michael Turner

There are sure signs of bad NFL football teams – things that they all have, for the most part, in common. These teams make stupid mistakes, including committing a inordinate amount of penalties. They are not disciplined. Defensively, they are bad – typically against the run, which allows their opponents to get into a comfort […]
