Breakdown of the 2015 Packers Tight Ends

Given the star power present in the Green Bay offense, the tight end corps of the 2015 Green Bay Packers has received relatively little attention.  Although NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers’ most potent weapons are certainly his bevy of young, albeit proven talent at the wide receiver position, the tight end position is certainly more of a question mark, especially with the recent off-field...

Can Barrington, Ryan Change Green Bay Packers’ ILB Fortunes?

The Green Bay Packers have done a good job addressing areas of need in recent years. When the run game ranked near the bottom of the league in 2011 and 2012, the Packers drafted Eddie Lacy to rejuvenate the backfield. In 2013, Green Bay was the only team to not record an interception from the safety position. The Packers addressed that by selecting Ha Ha Clinton-Dix with their first...

Who in the Heck is Green Bay Packers Clark Hinkle?

Recently my wife and I attended the June 10, 2015 Green Bay Packers OTA at Clark Hinkle Field.  We arrived with about 90 minutes to spare.  Many, if not all Green Bay Packers fans have heard of Ray Nitschke and Don Hutson, who both have practice fields named after them. But who in the heck was this “Clark Hinkle,” who also has a Packers practice field named after him? What...

HaHa Clinton-Dix could become a Pro Bowl safety for the Green Bay Packers in 2015

There were few non-quarterback rookies in the NFL last season that had more fan pressure on them to perform than HaHa Clinton-Dix. After watching some of the more putrid safety play in recent years with MD Jennings, Jerron McMillan, and a regressing Morgan Burnett in 2013, Ted Thompson wasted no time in trying to shore up the position when he drafted the safety from Alabama in the...

NFC scout calls Eddie Lacy ‘one of the strongest animals I’ve ever seen’

There are other assets to the Green Bay Packers offense than stud quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his elite receiving corps. The Packers have an all-purpose running back in third-year Eddie Lacy who received major praise from an NFC scout. “I’ll bet he weighs 240, but he plays like he weighs 300 pounds,” one NFC North personnel man told Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel...

The impact of the Brett Favre trade, 23 years later

The Atlanta Falcons selected Brett Favre with the 33rd overall pick in the 1991 NFL draft. The organization’s thinking was clear. This strong-armed quarterback from Southern Mississippi might very well be able to take over for Chris Miller as the starter down the road. This came at a time when New York Jets front office executive Ron Wolf was looking to move up in the draft to...
