The Green Bay Packers have a new GM, OC, DC, and other combinations of letters that do very important things! On today's podcast, we discuss the hirings of GM Brian Gutekunst, DC Mike Pettine, OC Joe Philbin, and a host of others.
Coming off an embarrassing shutout loss at home to the Minnesota Vikings, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is trying his best to convince us that week 17 isn't merely "preseason football" — but we know better. So we're switching to offseason mode. After a few notable nuggets from the Vikings game, we talk contract values and early draft possibilities.
Alex, Ben, and Zach talk about the Green Bay Packers' second consecutive overtime win — this time against the frisky yet winless Cleveland Browns — the upcoming tilt against Cam Newton and his Carolina Panthers, hilarious twitter beefs (cough Josh Gordon and Damarious Randall cough), and the status of one Aaron Rodgers, aka Aaron Charles Rodgers, aka QB1, aka the GOAT, aka the Dragon, aka the... you get the idea.
Most content during Thanksgiving week focuses on what we should be thankful for. But the Packer stink right now, so we’re going off script. Our resident film expert Ben Fennell stops by to break down the myriad ways he’s disappointed in this Packers team. Through his extremely insightful analysis, one thing becomes clear—he is tired of excuses.
Stephen A Smith made headlines this week when he pondered whether Aaron Rodgers was tiring of the Packers’ defensive struggles. We discuss his comments and look ahead to Vikings weekend with SB Nation's own Arif Hasan.
Alex and Ben run the board (if not the table) and talk to Mina Kimes at length about her in-depth Aaron Rodgers profile and the deep cuts of the Seahawks and Packers post-cutting to 53. By the end of it, everyone thinks the other team will win.
Which fast food restaurant is most like your favorite QB? New APC writer Peter Bukowski explains his new piece, and we debate the merits of crinkle cut fries. Peter also gives us some Packers nuggets (pun intended) including some Cutdown Day surprise predictions. Then, we get in touch with a Packer fan from Brazil, and he shares the story of how he became a fan of the greatest football team on God's green earth.
The guys hit on training camp topics like the release of Letroy Guion and the struggles of Mason Crosby and Damarious Randall. Then they're joined by NFL.com's fantasy football expert (and Packers fan) Alex Gelhar to drop some knowledge on top Packers fantasy players and answer listener questions.
Training camp is underway, which means pads are on and contact is fair game. After hitting on the major stories to come out of the first few practices, the APC Pod crew gets some help from SB Nation’s own Ben Natan to talk about possible rookie contributors on the Packers roster.
