Which defensive backs will step up against Aaron Rodgers? Packers fans are well aware of the starting trio in Green Bay at cornerback.  Jaire Alexander, Eric Stokes, and Rasul Douglas make for one of the best CB rooms in the NFL.  Beyond that, there is a giant question mark.  Who will take over as that slot…

The Green Bay Packers have a two headed monster at the pass rush position.  Rashan Gary and Preston Smith are both coming off extremely productive seasons in 2021.  Smith earned himself a four year extension with the Packers through the 2026 season.  Meanwhile Rashan Gary is lining himself up to be one of the highest paid pass rushers in all of football.  However, beyond those two there is a massive question mark.  While there remain a few pass rushers still available in free agency, one sticks out.  Jason Pierre Paul (JPP). Pierre-Paul to the Green Bay Packers? While not being…

Going into the 2022 NFL season the Green Bay Packers have a number of “what ifs” at the wide receiver position.  The Packers lost their top two wide receivers, Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, In the same off-season.   Allen Lazard and ‘possibly’ Christian Watson will be vying for that number one wide receiver spot.  The New York Jets have three wide receivers on their roster that will likely see major playing time.  Corey Davis, Elijah Moore, and newly drafted Garrett Wilson.  That could leave receiver Denzel Mims on the outside looking in.  The Jets have already been rumored to possibly…

Quarterback mentoring has been a topic of conversation ever since Ryan Tannehill’s comments on Malik Willis.  “We’re competing against each other, we’re watching the same tape, we’re doing the same drills. I don’t think it’s my job to mentor him, but if he learns from me along the way, then that’s a great thing.”  Very cringe worthy comments on the relationship between Titans’ QB1 and their rookie draft pick.  News of this may have reached Aaron Rodgers as he had some things to say regarding mentoring at the ’round table’ after “The Match.” Aaron Rodgers Following “The Match” “If they…

Jordan love does not get enough praise for how he has handled his NFL career so far.  Two years into his career and many fans and NFL analysts have wrote him off as a “bust.”  Some have labeled him as “one of the worst draft picks of recent memory.”  However it still seems that everyone inside the Green Bay Packers facility has full faith in the third year quarterback.
