The Green Bay Packers Offensive Line Has Questions That Need to Be Answered

It wasn’t long ago that the Green Bay Packers had one of the best offensive lines in the NFL. The unit was set at both guards and both tackles. David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga were the young guns of the offensive line locking down the left and right tackle positions. At guard, the Packers were blessed to have two solid veteran starters in Josh Sitton and TJ Lang. Fast forward to the present, the Packers no longer have Sitton and Lang holding down the guard positions. At tackle, Bakhtiari is still playing left tackle at a high level, but...

Brian Gutekunst is Still Working to Improve the Green Bay Packers Roster

Many who follow the Green Bay Packers, including here, didn’t believe Brian Gutekunst. Sure, he talked about looking for free agents to help bolster the depth on the Packers roster, but most have heard this before. Former general manager Ted Thompson never said he would and his actions proved just that. Although media types like Ian Rapoport had reported in the past that the Packers would be active in free agency, it never materialized. But the past couple of weeks, Gutekunst is showing that he wasn’t just giving lip service. Brian Gutekunst is still working to improve the Green...

Addition of Marcedes Lewis Provides More Depth for the Green Bay Packers

When Brian Gutekunst took over as the top personnel executive for the Green Bay Packers he declared that he would be more aggressive in free agency. The statement and the actions so far by Gutekunst is quite a difference from how Ted Thompson ran the Packers roster. This spring, Gutekunst has added Muhammad Wilkerson, Jimmy Graham, and Tramon Williams via free agency. But as the crop of free agents dwindled this spring, Gutekunst made sure to tell fans that the Packers would still be seeking additions all the way up to training camp. This past week, Gutekunst and the Packers showed that was the case, when they brought on another player via free agency.  Addition of Marcedes Lewis provides more depth for the Green Bay Packers. It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that head coach Mike McCarthy would bring in another tight end. McCarthy played tight end in college and has a soft spot in his heart for the tight end position. But the addition of tight ends isn’t about McCarthy’s personal feelings. McCarthy prioritizes tight ends in his offense and has talked for many seasons about bolstering the position. With Graham and Kendricks already in the fold, Lewis rounds out the position. The Packers now have three proven NFL tight ends on their roster. Lewis is a former first-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars. He played...

The Green Bay Packers Defensive Line has Potential to be Special

The defense of the Green Bay Packers haven’t played well in many seasons. That statement isn’t much of a “hot take”. That is why head coach Mike McCarthy replaced longtime defensive coordinator Dom Capers with former Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine after last season. Pettine has a lot of work to do to get the Packers defense back to being respectable. But not all of what Pettine has to work with is doom and gloom. One part of the Packers defense that should help Pettine out is their defensive line. The Green Bay Packers defensive line has potential...
