Here at Wisconsin Sports Heroics, we will dive into the draft extensively and look at possible prospects for the Packers. I am here to dissect who Harris chose for the Packers in his most recent mock draft. Let’s…

The Packers defeated the Ravens Sunday afternoon 31-30, locking up the NFC North. Let’s take a look at the three things we learned in the victory versus the Ravens. Special Teams is Anything but Special The Packers special teams has been one of the worst rated units in the league all season. First year special teams coordinator Maurice Drayton has struggled to improve a lackluster unit. It was no different Sunday afternoon against the Ravens. A 35 yard kick off return by Amari Rodgers was erased by a block in the back penalty, that hurt their starting field position. The…

Packers pressure Fields all afternoon

In the oldest rivalry in the NFL, the Packers defeated the Bears Sunday afternoon 24-14. It was a slow start for Rodgers and the offense only amassing two first downs in the first quarter. After the first quarter, the Packers found consistency scoring a touchdown in the second, third, and fourth quarter. Crosby hit a field goal in the second as well. The Packers improve to 5-1 and take a strong hold on the North. Rushing Attack While Rodgers only threw for 195 yards on 23 attempts, the Packers rushed for 154 yards on 31 carries (4.96 average). Aaron Jones…

Packers look right on Sunday

With a final of score of 27-17, the Packers move to 3-1 on the season and the Steelers move to 1-3. This was the first time the Packers defeated the Steelers in the regular season in 1995 (they had previously lost 5 straight). After embarrassing lost to the Saints to begin the season, the Packers looked right on Sunday against the Steelers. Stiff Defense The Steelers scored on their opening drive with a deep touchdown over the outstretched hands of cornerback Jaire Alexander to…

Packers lose to Saints in opener

The Green Bay Packers entered the season seeking a 3rd straight appearance to the NFC Championship. They begin the season against the New Orleans Saints. Originally slated to be played at the Super Dome, but due to the effects of Hurricane Ida, the game was moved to Jacksonville. The Saints start a new era with Jameis Winston after Drew Brees retired following last year. Let’s recap the disappointing loss against the Saints. Offensive Struggles While it is only week one, and for many of the starters, their first game action this year, it was an outright ugly loss to Jameis…

Stokes should start week one

The Green Bay Packers drafted defensive back Eric Stokes in the first round of the 2021 draft. Stokes started at corner at the University of Georgia, starting nine games and making second-team All-SEC in 2020. It has been nearly nine months since the loss to the Tampa Buccaneers in the NFC championship. The dismal play by Kevin King in the championship game resulted in the drafting of Stokes to be the replacement. King was brought back on a one-year deal to be the stopgap between Stokes taking the reigns as starter. King has been out most of training camp and…

Kelly will play an important role with the Packers

The Green Bay Packers signed veteran offensive tackle Dennis Kelly on July 29th. Kelly played for the Tennessee Titans in 2020, starting all 16 games for the first time in his career. He had played with the Titans since 2016 and was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2012. Kelly brings a veteran presence to a deep group at offensive line, but will play an important role as a potential swing-tackle. With the injuries to all-pro left tackle David Bahktiari and the uncertainty of the right tackle position, Kelly has the chance to play meaningful snaps in 2021 for the…

Let us take a look at some of the most important/pivotal Packers for the 2021 season. Aaron Rodgers/ Jordan Love Not a surprise to anybody, Aaron Rodgers and or Jordan Love top the list as the most important Packers in 2021. For most teams, the…

Make or break year for Josh Jackson

It is mini-camp and OTA’s time for NFL teams. Young players, new players and veterans have the chance to prove themselves to a new group of coaches and staff. Every year, players can make or break their season beginning at OTA’s and mini-camp. 4th year cornerback Josh Jackson is the final year of his rookie contract, is among those players who need to prove themselves.  Jackson was drafted out of the university of Iowa in the 2nd round in 2018. He has yet to live up to the hype of being a upper tier pick in the NFL draft. With…

The Packers could use a veteran leader like KJ Wright in the middle of the defense.

We are now two weeks past the 2021 NFL Draft. Once again, the Packers did not address the inside linebacker issue until the 6th round when they selected Isaiah McDuffie out of Boston College. McDuffie will be a development prospect at best who can help contribute on special teams. There is promise currently on the roster with Krys Barnes and Kamal Martin. Both are only second year players, and while flashed potential in 2020, left a lot desired on the field. There are still veterans in the free agency market who could help teams fill wholes left by the draft.…
