Would Julio Jones’s Lambeau Leaps be Worth the Box Office Price for The Packers?

Would Julio Jones’s Lambeau Leaps be Worth the Box Office Price for The Packers? Questioning the Packers Depth at Wide Receiver: With an offseason dedicated to filling the many holes left in the roster from a disappointing 2017 season, The Packers roster is beginning to take shape.  One position that has some worrying, is the current situation at the wide receiver.

Packers’ spring practices are all defined by veterans skipping minicamp

The Green Bay head coach has been approaching the offseason differently for the past few years.

Who wouldn’t love a week off from work? NFL players are not that different from the average person in that respect, especially when it comes to offseason workouts. Over the past few years, the Green Bay Packers have made a habit of letting veteran players leave town during the week of mandatory minicamp, and it has become both a tradition and an appreciated perk for players who have been in the...

People Forget: Packers Move Towards Camp as "Dogs"

It can certainly be argued that the internet has removed the utility of the newsstand preview.  Not the fantasy preview, of course those have utility.  Many drafts still have the "old" rules.  No computers, no phones.  Everyone in the room with a draft board and a few permanent markers, cheat sheets and magazines only.  It makes for a better draft, otherwise everyone just ends up picking off of ESPN or NFL.com's default rankings.  I'm talking about the NFL previews.  "New" rosters,...

Ranking most likely new NFL playoff teams, who they'd replace

In every year since 1990, there have been at least four new teams that made the playoffs. The Texans are prime candidates in 2018.

Adam Pankey working on providing Packers with more versatile OL depth

-- The offensive line for the Green Bay Packers is well-stocked in the versatility department, so it should be no surprise that another dark horse is making rounds at almost every line position. The Packers have reportedly been trying undrafted second-year lineman Adam Pankey at both tackle spots as well as interior guard in OTAs and minicamp. With right tackle Bryan Bulaga's status up in the air, they could certainly relish the possibility of adding another depth piece. Pankey, who has...

Packers Best Plays of 2017, #10: The Green Bay Bobsled Team

If you can bobsled in Jamaica, you can bobsled in Texas.

The Green Bay Packers felt the rhythm, they felt the rhyme, and for a brief moment in the 2017 season it was bobsled time.

Last season was one most Packers fans would like to forget, but that doesn’t mean some fun wasn’t had.

One fun moment came in Week 5 against the Dallas Cowboys. That game was the high point of the season for Green Bay in many ways, the first of which is number 10 on our list of top plays from last season....

Packers’ top players’ Madden NFL 19 rankings leaked and we have questions

A few of these rankings are baffling to us as Packers fans. Each year’s edition of the Madden NFL Football video game comes with debates over players’ rankings, and Madden NFL 19 is sure to be no exception. In fact, the current working rankings for this year’s version of the game leaked out over the weekend and have started some conversation among NFL fans. The video, which you can find here, was published to Youtube by an EA “Game Changer” user, which is essentially a glorified...

Monday Curds: A few new Packers are focusing on the ‘foot’ in football

And at least for today, neither of the players we’re talking about is a kicker or punter.

Since players only touch the pigskin with their feet a few times each game, the name of the sport — football — seems an odd choice. For a pair of new Green Bay Packers, however, the offseason has very much been about their feet, even if they’re not supposed to be coming into contact with the ball.

Sure, rookie punter JK Scott has been booming punts in spring practices, but we’ll worry about...

A Saints' approach: Packers could copy New Orleans' run plan

Whether it's copying the Saints' strategy or some other form of running back by committee, it's clear the Packers don't plan to rely on one back.

Winning Field Position Battle Emphasis of 2018 Draft

Round 5. Pick 172. Punter J.K. Scott, Alabama goes to the Green Bay Packers. With this selection, on came the scrutiny of the team using a valuable draft selection on a specialist, especially with the track record that the team has in selecting punters (see B.J. Sander, 2004). With the loss of cheesehead icon Jeff Janis to Green Bay east (Cleveland), as well as a bigger emphasis on Ron Zook’s punting unit, Green Bay has shown that its focus has changed to becoming more accountable in the...

What Are the Packers Communicating?

Green Bay Packers organized team activities wrapped up at the end of last week and the team won't reconvene until training camp in July.  Hence, this commences a long period of time with no new football activity. Beyond the coveted updates on the rookies that the team will count on and updates on Aaron Rodgers and his speculated contract talks, the coaches spoke with the media. By now, most of us have seen or heard the interaction between the local media and Packers Assistant Head...

Packers' Randall Cobb reached historic milestone in 2017

-- Many fans already know the worth of Randall Cobb in the Green Bay Packers' offensive plans, which go well beyond a simple bickering match about his contract. The Packers' wide receiver is set to earn $12.7 million dollars in 2018, the final year of the four-year, $40 million dollar deal he signed after his breakout 2014 season. For someone who hasn't really come remotely close to the production he amassed during that Pro Bowl season, Cobb's contributions are more so underlying in the...

Packers Still Relying Heavily on Kevin King and Josh Jones

For the second consecutive year and the third time since 2015, the Green Bay Packers used two picks in the first two rounds of the NFL draft on defensive backs in 2018.  It's easy to see why the Packers did it. Jaire Alexander was one of their top targets all along. He fell to the perfect spot. Then Josh Jackson, another corner Green Bay really liked, fell into the second round and Brian Gutekunst wisely pulled the trigger. That has created a lot of excitement about the secondary,...

Packers Best Plays of 2017: Adams torches Steelers, but falls outside our top ten

This great pass-and-catch gave the Packers a lead, but it couldn’t quite crack our top ten. As we continue to prepare for the start of our countdown of the Packers’ best plays of 2017, we keep going with an honorable mention — one of the plays that just missed out on our top ten. Ten APC contributors voted on last year’s best plays, and we’ll begin our official countdown on Monday. But for now, let’s look back on a great play from Brett Hundley and Davante Adams in the latter...

Packers' Vince Biegel gets a dog, names it Lambeau (of course)

But sadly there is no Biegel’s Beagle. On July 13th, Vince Biegel’s wife Sarah announced the new addition to their family. Lambeau, a miniature golden doodle, made her very first trip to the field from which she gets her namesake. Twitter user @ZachBOutdoors joked that the Biegel family should have gone with a different breed. Vince responded saying “I don’t know if there’s room for another ‘Biegel’ in the house.” Both Vince and Sarah’s twitter threads were flooded with...

Packers Own Best RB Depth

Running back is one of the toughest positions to fill in the NFL. Not because of talent, but because of attrition. According to Spotrac.com, there were 46 running backs that went on season-ending injured reserve last year. That’s fourth behind wide receivers (69), cornerbacks (61) and outside linebackers (51). That running back number includes David Johnson, Spencer Ware and Dalvin Cook. With running backs being so hard to keep on the field, the Packers easily have the best running back...
