We’re a day late, but officially starting to look forward to the upcoming season. Who are we expecting a lot out of this year and why? Plus, big life updates that affect The Power Sweep and why I still have a special place in my heart for Madden...even though it’s bad now.
The Packers are down a starter for two key early season games. How will this affect position battles and the early portion of the season? We’ll dive in. Then, we’ve got a new stat to talk about, we’ll take a weird trip down memory lane, including the time a 5-8 wide receiver was Brett Favre’s number two target.
Training camp hasn’t even started and a key member of the Packers is already hurt. Our Jon Meerdink thinks that says a lot about how the Packers handled this offseason. Then, why the NFL 100 is worth ignoring, part 2 and which Packers record would be the most fun to see broken.
There is good reason to think we’re seeing the end of Clay Matthews in Green Bay. At least, from a certain point of view. Plus, why it’s dumb to get mad about coaches talking (or not talking) to the media, and why it’s best to take a wait and see approach with Mike McCarthy. Then, it’s possible for two things to be true at the same time.
Our 2017 predictions show yet another way the Minnesota Vikings make life on this planet worse. Plus, a little talk about OTAs and the Packers’ latest free agent addition. Then, do you think Aaron Rodgers should change how he plays?
We need to take some time to talk about the guys who aren’t stars. Why should you care about the guys who aren’t making headlines? We’ll tell you. We’ll also take a look at Adrian Peterson’s request to come to Green Bay, why he’s different than Dez Bryant, and whether Davante Adams belongs in the top 50 on the NFL 100
OTAs are finally here, and with them come takes from all corners. Aaron Rodgers weighs in on Dez Bryant, we tell you which rookies are going to make an impact, and we dive into some moral philosophy. Yes, really. Finally...please read before you comment.
The Packers revamped their defense this offseason...or did they? Let’s take a second and break down where the defense stands after free agency, the draft, undrafted free agency, and a month of speculation. Let’s speculate some more, shall we?
We’re in the age of the minicamp, so who’s lining up on offense for the Packers? You may be surprised how many positions we can already nail down. Beyond the starting lineup, though, things get pretty iffy. Let’s take a top to bottom look at the Packers’ offense.
After months of anticipation and build-up, the draft is done. Now, we’re left to sort through the pieces. We’ll tell you why you should be excited about the top end of this year’s draft, why it’s okay to draft a punter and a long snapper, and how one specific trade could be a big part of what makes or breaks the middle part of the Packers draft. Then, we’ll dive into what the Packers should do next and who’s on the roster bubble.
Aaron Rodgers is speaking his mind...or is he? We’ll take on his contentious secret comments and the subsequent walk back. Then, why Jon thinks the Packers might want to seriously consider Dez Bryant and why Aaron Rodgers will be getting a new helmet in the near future. Plus a word about running backs.
As we find ourselves in a waiting period in the NFL offseason, there’s a bunch of little things going on, so let’s talk about a bunch of things. We’ll touch on exciting young players, free agency, the Packers’ uniforms, Aaron Rodgers getting paid, drafting a quarterback, and even how to fix kickoffs. Buckle up!
Mike McCarthy says the Packers had it wrong on Damarious Randall, the Jordy Nelson tour of sadness continues, and we wrap up a big series. Then, we break down the possibilities around the Packers making a big trade.
We’re officially a week into free agency and everything looks different in Green Bay. Jordy Nelson, Damarious Randall, and Morgan Burnett are gone. Jimmy Graham, Muhammad Wilkerson, and Deshone Kizer have arrived. Are the Packers any better? And what do they do going forward? Plus, why is it so important to pretend that decisions aren’t about money?
The Packers are already making waves in free agency, and free agency hasn’t even officially begun. Is Muhammad Wilkerson worth considering, and why? And if it comes down to it, should the Packers take an edge rusher or cornerback? Then, we’ll take stock of the Brian Gutekunst era so far.

This week on Blue 58, as the offseason really gets cooking, the Packers could be ready to part ways with a long-time member of the secondary. We’ll talk about how they got to that point and how the Packers’ decision-making process affects their results in free agency. Then, our attention turns to the combine as the run-up to the draft begins in earnest before we cap things off with a few of your questions.
