The anticipation for the 2024 NFL season has only grown this month after the league released its schedule for the upcoming year. For the Green Bay Packers, surpassing expectations last year only means that people will expect more from the team this year. The question is: does the schedule afford the Packers the opportunity to do so? Green Bay Packers: 2024 Key Games The Green Bay Packers have the 4th-toughest schedule of any team next year, so it definitely won’t be easy repeating last year’s successful playoff run. Not only because the league every year has teams that either dramatically…

In April 2024, word got out that the Green Bay Packers would be facing off against the Philadelphia Eagles in Sao Palo, Brazil. While this may seem customary to NFL fans as just another part of the league’s effort to grow the game globally, it could have actually have much more of a historical significance than one might think. Green Bay Packers: Helping to grow the game This is the second time in three years that the Green Bay Packers have been chosen to participate in an international NFL game. In 2022, they played a game in London against the…

The 2024 NFL Draft is in the books, and now, everyone is engaging in commentary as to whether each team had a successful draft class or not. Some teams made predictable moves, and others made transactions that can only be described as head-scratchers. For the Green Bay Packers, who are coming off a better-than-expected season, this was an opportunity to surround their talented squad with even more building blocks that can help them become a legit NFC competitor next year. Green Bay Packers’ Picks: Beasts or Busts? We shall wait to see how each of the Packers’ draft picks pan…

With the NFL offseason well underway, teams across the league are making moves to try to improve their rosters and remain under the salary cap. But what the Green Bay Packers’ biggest rivals are doing this year is garnering an extra amount of attention. With the #1 overall draft pick, what the Chicago Bears decide could very well shape the future of their franchise. There is a noteworthy argument to be made that it could very well affect the NFC North division power structure as well. Green Bay Packers & the others: What are they doing? Before we get into…

The Green Bay Packers’ season ended a few weeks back with a nail-biting 24-21 divisional round loss to the San Francisco 49ers. But after the 49ers were defeated by the Chiefs in this past Sunday’s epic Super Bowl, I thought it would be appropriate to look back on the season and comprehend important lessons going forward. Green Bay Packers: How close are they to Kansas City? There is little doubt that with attaining back-to-back titles for the first time since the 2003-04 Patriots, the Kansas City Chiefs are the gold standard in the NFL right now. Especially with the TV…

The first weekend of the 2023-24 NFL Playoffs is in the books, and there was one team’s win that stood out above all others. In a Super Wild Card Weekend that consisted of five of the six home teams winning, most by large margins, the Green Bay Packers became the first 7-seed in NFL history to advance with an impressive 48-32 win over the 2-seed Dallas Cowboys. Some teams play their best football during playoff time, and Green Bay is exhibiting that right now. 2023-24 NFL Playoffs: Total domination Jordan Love is getting widespread, deserved praise for his performance this…

Jordan Love and the Green Bay Packers clinched a playoff spot this past Sunday with a hard-fought 17-9 win against the division rival Chicago Bears. Love’s leadership of the team throughout the season has garnered widespread praise: from fans, his teammates, his coach and others in the league. Although some may find it premature or simply “living in the moment”, I actually believe there is a plausible case to make that Jordan Love, in his first year as starter, could very well be the 2023 MVP of the NFL. Jordan Love and the Green Bay Packers: Highs and lows of…

The Green Bay Packers will be heading into a critical Week 17 match up with division rival Minnesota without one of their premier players. Jaire Alexander, the cornerback for the team, was suspended 1 game. But it wasn’t for off-the-field conduct or a “dirty play” on the field. It was because he misrepresented himself as a captain during the pregame coin toss, and then proceeded to nearly botch the key decision immediately after. Although this may be overlooked as a mere footnote in the week ahead, it could also end up being costly for Green Bay. Week 16 coin toss…

As the 2023 season winds down, teams like the Green Bay Packers are pondering a perpetual question that has become the subject of much scrutiny over the years. The dilemma is based on the debate over whether the concept of “tanking” is appropriate for professional football, or any sports team, to be engaging in. Believe it or not, there are actually viable arguments to be made on both sides. Green Bay Packers: Potential contender or stuck in mediocrity? Last year, the Green Bay Packers finished 8-9 and missed the playoffs after losing the regular-season finale to Detroit. This year, the…

It’s been almost inescapable to notice the high amount of injuries in recent seasons to high-profile quarterbacks around the league. Which is why, particularly this year, it is important to have quality backup quarterbacks on your roster that can lead your team sufficiently. It is remarkable to see how these backups, along with the newcomers, are keeping their teams afloat for the playoff chase. This is a phenomena that is certainly positive for the National Football League.
