Tony Romo thinks the Jaguars will be in Super Bowl LIII

We’re seven months away from Super Bowl 53, but that isn’t stopping Tony Romo from predicting who he thinks will compete for the NFL championship. From the NFC, it’s the Green Bay Packers. They have Aaron Rodgers and until they don’t they’re a contender. From the AFC, its... the Jacksonville Jaguars? That’s what Romo said on Wednesday when asked by NFL Network’s Lindsay Rhodes. “If I had to pick right now? It’s pretty early,” Romo said. “Thing about the NFL is things change pretty fast. Injuries happen, a lot of stuff happens, but, um... if I was picking right now,...

Tuesday Cheese Curds: Packers hope bigger Aaron Jones means bigger results on the field

The UTEP standout hit the weight room early and often during the offseason. Aaron Jones’ body was speaking to him and, entering just his second NFL season, the Green Bay Packers running back listened. Jones’ emergence was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dismal 2017 season for the Packers, but the rookie did miss two games with a knee injury as the wear and tear of the season took its toll. Jones knew that he’d have to bulk up to have the endurance to play a full sophomore season and hit the weight room during the offseason program. The results showed up during OTAs and...

Why the Packers should kick the tires on veteran wide receiver market

Randall Cobb’s ankle injury isn’t expected to linger, but serves as a reminder how dangerously thin Green Bay is at the position.

Positional breakdown: ranking the NFC North’s offenses

This division has the potential of four stellar offenses. Who shakes out as the best? Throughout the last eight seasons, the NFC North has boasted at least one top offense in the league on a yearly basis. Usually that’s been headlined by the Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers, but the tide could be turning. On paper, all four teams in this division have a shot at a top 15 product in 2018. Depth charts can be deceiving and injuries happen, but the North may even boast a pair of top 10 offenses in 2018. As we look at each side of the ball, it’s easy to see why.

Report: Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) could miss start of training camp

Even with training camp a month away, the Green Bay Packers might have one less starting wideout available when players report. According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s Michael Cohen, Randall Cobb has an injury to his right ankle that could delay the start of his camp debut, though the team has “no concern” about his availability for the season opener against the Chicago Bears.

Who is the next Packers’ first-time Pro Bowler?

NFL’s Gil Brandt makes his best guess. In a recent article for NFL.com, Gil Brandt made his 16 best guesses about potential first-time Pro Bowlers from the NFC. This, obviously, includes his pick for the Green Bay Packers. For most other teams his guess is either an up-and-coming offensive player or a young pass rusher who has missed time due to injury. For the Packers, he chose an inside linebacker in Blake Martinez. Blake is a fairly safe pick if only stats are taken into consideration. His 144 combined tackles in 2017 tied for the top mark in the league with the Cleveland Browns’ Joe...

Don’t trust running backs beyond the next game

This may be hard to accept, but Eddie Lacy was good in 2016. He only had 75 touches for the Green Bay Packers before an injury ended his season after five games, but he was more successful than not on those 75 touches. Lacy had 5.1 yards per carry and broke 26 tackles, giving him the highest broken tackle percentage in the NFL that year for any back with at least 25 touches, per FootballOutsiders. Granted, that BT% likely declines if Lacy gets another 200 touches, but the rate likely would’ve still kept him near the top of those rankings. That was not nearly as much the case in 2015, when...
