Now that the offseason is in full swing for the Green Bay Packers, there are many rumors and possibilities swirling around.  Mike Pettine is already gone and Matt LaFleur is already interviewing candidates to take his place.  In terms of the roster, there are many questions in regards to salary cap and who may or may not be brought back.  One thing is for sure though: the Packers defense needs to be better.  One of the ways they can do this is by making a play for JJ Watt.   According to a source close to the Texans, the Packers are the…

The Green Bay Packers made the decision to move on from defensive coordinator Mike Pettine.  After losing two straight NFC Championships, it was clear that the defense would not take the leap it needs to become a Super Bowl defense under Pettine’s leadership.  Head coach Matt LaFleur has said that the search for the new defensive coordinator will be thorough.  This means many candidates will be considered and the process will not be fast.  However, it just might be that the answer the Packers are looking for is already on staff. Defensive Backs Coach- Jerry Gray Without a doubt, the…

For as long as many fans recent memory goes back, the Packers’ special teams has been a source of frustration.  Last season, the signing of Tyler Ervin saved the team from a historically bad punt return net yardage.  This year, the special teams cost the Packers at least one game, and arguably another.  The lack of improvement led the team to part ways with coordinator Shawn Menennga. [pickup_prop id=”4401″] While the Special Teams Coordinator is not as high-profile a position as Defensive Coordinator, the Packers’ lackluster special teams have proven that it can be just as important.  Who will the…

Going into Sunday’s NFC Championship game, hopes were high for Packers’ fans.  Unfortunately, the Packers lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for several reasons.  One of those reasons is the poor showing by the defense.  This is the same story as last season’s NFC Championship loss.  All season long, questions have swirled around the security of Mike Pettine’s job.  With this loss, those questions might have been answered. Mike Pettine’s Regular Season Performance Mike Pettine was hired by the Packers in 2018 to be the defensive coordinator.  It was not a good season, and the Packers finished 6-9-1.  Mike McCarthy…

On Friday, January 22, 2021, Hammerin’ Hank Aaron passed away.  When people think of baseball in Milwaukee, Robin Yount is often thought of the greatest Brewers’ player.  While that is certainly a logical argument, it does not take into consideration the Milwaukee Braves and their greatest player: Henry Aaron.  Best known as a Brave, Hank Aaron played 21 of his 23 seasons with the Braves franchise.  However, 14 of those 23 seasons were spent in Milwaukee.  In this edition of Brewers Past and Present, we spotlight the career of the greatest player to ever play baseball in the city of…

The Green Bay Packers’ family lost one of the greats yesterday.  Ted Thompson was the general manager who constructed the Super Bowl XLV winning team.  He brought in big name free agents like Charles Woodson and Julius Peppers.  Where he made his real mark, though, was in the draft.  Like all general managers, Ted missed on some picks; but he hit more home runs than almost any in the league.  19 of the players Thompson picked went on to make at least one Pro Bowl in their careers.  19 players in 12 seasons.  Some of them are still on the…
