Bears-Packers Takeaway No. 1: Aaron Jones is a STUD The first and biggest takeaway for fans is that Packers running back Aaron Jones is a stud and certainly makes an argument to be the best running back in the NFL.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is 23-5 in his career against the Chicago Bears. That record includes a victory in the 2010 NFC Championship game at Soldier Field. He has had his fair share of fun moments against them, throwing 61 touchdowns and only 10 interceptions in regular season games. There are so many moments to choose from but I chose the three biggest moments in terms of circumstance and significance. 1. Game Winning Touchdown pass to win NFC North in 2013 There were so many circumstances surrounding this week 17 thriller in 2013. Aaron Rodgers was returning from a broken…

On Sunday afternoon, the Packers faced off against against their NFC North rival, the Minnesota Vikings. There was not a lot of good to take away from this game. The Packers fell short losing 23-7. Takeaway Number 1: Young Receivers Let Inexperience ShowThe number one takeaway is that the Packers receiving group is inexperienced. Their most experienced wide receiver is Allen Lazard. He missed Sunday’s game due to a foot injury.  Christian Watson dropped what would have been a touchdown pass on the first play of the game and it seemingly set the tone for the offense. The receivers group as…

It is no doubt a tough pill to swallow. 1. Aaron JonesFor starters, running back Aaron Jones who signed a four year, $48 million contract in 2021 had to restructure his contract in order to help the Packers clear up salary cap space for this year.

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame is full of many prestigious names: Vince Lombardi, Bart Starr and Brett Favre to name a few. With wide receiver Greg Jennings being the newest member of the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame on August 30th, the question is: who else should be in? 1. Jordy Nelson First off, Jordy Nelson makes a great case to be a Packers Hall of Fame inductee in the very near future.
