Position Grade: B+ After 2018, the Packers’ edge rush was in a state of despair. The addition of Za-Darius and Preston Smith did much to improve the Packers’ pass rush in 2019. Twelfth overall pick Rashan Gary did little to impress, but has potential to make a large step forward in 2020. Overall, the Packers’ edge rush is in decent shape entering the season, but depth will be an issue. Edge Rush Leader A: Za’Darius Smith An obvious snub for the Pro Bowl last season, Za’Darius Smith emerged as one of the premier defensive players in the entire NFL last…

Jace Sternberger was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the third round of the 2019 draft. His 2019 season, however, was not what he nor the organization hoped for. An injury early in the season kept him from recording a reception during the entire regular season. In the NFC Championship, though, he recorded three receptions for 15 yards and his first NFL touchdown. The departure of Jimmy Graham opens up the starting tight end spot and it’s Sternberger’s for the taking. Here, we are going to analyze his potential and conclude what he needs to do in order to…

Ben Sheets was the overwhelming winner of a Twitter poll for the next player to be highlighted here, beating out Mark Loretta, Charlie Moore, and Orlando Arcia.

The Green Bay Packers have officially signed the first of nine players whom they drafted in this year’s NFL Draft. Jonathan Garvin, their final draft pick in the seventh round, is an outside linebacker from Miami and the first to ink his name on a professional contract. He was an early entry into the NFL Draft, but was not taken until the 242nd pick. Jonathan Garvin became a full-time starter in his sophomore season in 2018. During that campaign, he had 60 total tackles (17 for loss) and 5.5 sacks. In addition, he recovered two fumbles, one of which he…

It is impossible to tell the story of the Milwaukee Brewers without Bob Uecker. Even though Ueck never put on a Brewers’ uniform during his playing days, he is arguably the franchise’s most endearing personality. The careers of great players like Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, Hank Aaron, and Prince Fielder have come and gone. Yet Uecker remains. Ueker’s Playing Career Bob Uecker had a notoriously unsubstantial career as a catcher. Luckily for baseball fans everywhere, Ueck was gifted with a flair for comedic storytelling. He has used this gift to tell humorous stories of his glory days behind the plate.…

There is light at the end of the tunnel for Brewers’ fans! After the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the MLB season, players were sent home. It still remains to be determined when, or if, baseball will happen this season. However, it appears that steps are being taken to prepare players for a possible shortened season. According to Adam McCalvy, the Brewers have opened their Arizona facility to players on the 40-man roster who live in the Phoenix area. Keston Hiura, Corbin Burnes, and Josh Hader are said to be participating, according to McCalvy. This is a major development for Brewers’ fans…

There is no professional sports franchises that bonds with its community quite like the Green Bay Packers. Perhaps more important than the tradition of winning is the team’s tradition of giving back to its fans. It is obviously something that even new players love about the team. Christian Kirksey, for example, has bought food for Green Bay area homeless shelters during the crisis. Kenny Clark, one of the most beloved players on the team, has also taken it upon himself to give back to the community that welcomed him with open arms. Clark is partnering with the Brown County United…

The Green Bay Packers, like all other NFL teams, have been unable to host team workouts due to the COVID-19 situation. The inability to gather as a team makes it easy for players to slack off. That does not seem to be the case, however, for Rashan Gary. Gary was selected by the Packers with the 12th overall pick in the 2019 draft. To say he did not play like an early first round pick would be an understatement. Many fans were critical of the pick due to Gary’s injury history in college. In addition, the Packers added the notorious…
