“This could definitely be a get right situation for the Packers passing game.”

The Green Bay Packers have virtually no chance to make the playoffs in 2022, but their upcoming game against the Chicago Bears does come with a few rewards. First is bragging rights. A year after quarterback Aaron Rodgers screamed, “I still own you,” at Soldier Field, he has an opportunity to add an exclamation point to his dominance in Chicago by winning with a...

Some Packers draft targets to watch during conference championship weekend.

It’s Bears weekend for the Green Bay Packers, and perhaps the last important game of the season for fans before they turn their sights to the 2023 season.

With a 4-8 record, the Packers currently have just a three percent chance of making the playoffs according to FiveThirtyEight. Only three teams have worse odds of making the postseason, with one of...

Broncos' offensive scheme explains problems

The Broncos have been brutal on offense in 2022 despite swinging a big trade for Russell Wilson. Is it because the former Seahawks star wasn't the player Denver was targeting under center?

The podcast starts off with where the Packers’ cap situation stands going into 2023, as a look to the future is natural when the team is 4-8 with playoff hopes on life support.

The Complex Legacy of Mason Crosby

Why Green Bay’s veteran kicker is likely underrated.

Mason Crosby has been the Green Bay Packers’ kicker since 2007. In that time, he’s become something of a fan favorite and, by all accounts, a solid veteran presence in the locker room. This will probably be Crosby’s last season as age and injuries have taken a severe toll on his leg strength and accuracy, and his susceptibility to blocked kicks has increased as well. Crosby’s touchback...

Packers Film Room: The Packers’ weak-side mid zone runs help combat ‘over’ defenses

Photo by Scott Taetsch/Getty Images

Today’s film room breaks down the Packers “mid zone” run that A.J. Dillon scored on early in the Eagles game.

Green Bay Packers running back A.J. Dillon finally found the end zone again on Sunday night in what I believe is actually the strength of the Packers offense in the running game. The Packers have favored getting their two running backs more carries recently due to Aaron Rodgers’ limitations due to injury. At the end of the night, the...

Friday Cheese Curds: Packers and Bears will fight for NFL’s all-time wins mark on Sunday

Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images

The Packers have finally caught the Bears after years of closing the gap, and they could finally overtake Chicago in their head-to-head matchup on Sunday.

786.

That’s the number of all-time wins that the Green Bay Packers have in franchise history. But that’s also the number of all-time wins that the Chicago Bears have recorded, so it’s only fitting that the two rival franchises, the oldest and winningest in NFL history, meet one another to...

Will the Bills finally start to separate from the pack in the AFC East? Tune in tonight to find out.

For the time being, at least, all four teams in the AFC East still have winning records. That division is one of two in the NFL that can claim that at this point, joining the NFC East as well. However, that could come to an end tonight, as the 6-5 New England Patriots put their record on the line against the division-leading Buffalo Bills on...

Packers Film Room: Breaking down two of Aaron Rodgers’ three sacks in Philadelphia

Aaron Rodgers was sacked three times in Philadelphia and today’s Film Room looks two of the costlier ones.

In addition to throwing costly interceptions that limited the Green Bay Packers’ ability to score points and that led to points for the Philadelphia Eagles, Aaron Rodgers and the offensive line gave up three sacks that also stalled drives and prevented them from scoring the necessary points to stay in a close game.

Two of the sacks came on...

Packers Time Capsule: The day the Packers turned the tide in the Lombardi Era

The Packers hammered the Bears in their second meeting of the 1960 season, setting the tone for the rest of the Lombardi era.

The Packers and Bears have faced each other more than 200 times, but their matchup on Sunday will be just the second time they’ve played on December 4. That date, in particular, isn’t terribly significant, and the fact that these two storied teams have only played one other time on that date wouldn’t be worth...

Packers Film Room: Examining Aaron Rodgers’ two interceptions against the Eagles

Photo by Mitchell Leff/Getty Images

Today’s film room breaks down two costly interceptions in Philadelphia.

The Green Bay Packers walked out of Philadelphia with a 40-33 loss to the Eagles in a game that would have boosted their odds to make the playoffs significantly to 16% (more on that later). Aaron Rodgers left the game in the third quarter with a rib injury, receiving x-rays at the stadium and being held out of the rest of the game.

He finished the game with 140 passing yards,...
