ACROSS ENEMY LINES: Why I’m a fan of the Detroit Lions

KEEPING A WATCHFUL EYE ON THE RIVALS OF THE GREEN BAY PACKERS

What’s Up Green Bay Packers Fans

Since many Packers fanatics like to not only keep up with their favorite team the Packers, but also like to keep an eye on what the despised division foes are doing, We decided to periodically check out what’s transpiring across the borders.

Here’s a blog post to keep you filled in on what the other teams in our division are up to

Why I’m a fan of the Detroit Lions

The story of “Why I’m a fan of the Detroit Lions” could be different than the average story. I didn’t grow up in Michigan or have ever lived there and they weren’t my team as a kid.

There are no close NFL teams around western Iowa (closest is KC) and as a kid, I grew up a 49ers fan. I loved watching Steve Young (who I was lucky to meet once as a young kid), Jerry Rice, Merton Hanks, Terrell Owens, Ken Norton, and others playing on Sundays. One of my favorite memories was Owens catching a TD from Young at the end of a playoff game to beat the Packers, it was glorious!
Fast forward a little after Young retired due to a concussion, Rice went on to the Raiders, Owens became TO, I was at the point where I was older and didn’t feel a connection to my childhood team. In 2003, (freshman in high school) I decided to make a change and select a new NFL team. I chose the Detroit Lions because Steve Mariucci went from the 49ers to the Lions that year, I like the color blue/Detroit’s uniforms and growing up, I loved watching Barry Sanders play on Thanksgiving. Barry Sanders was so smooth and electric when running, it was hard not to love rooting for a player like that. Barry was a great player on the field but was an even better person off the field. Being an adult (or so we all thought at that age), I wanted to make a decision for me and started following the Lions.
The past 13 seasons have been pretty wild, the Lions went through a lot of quarterbacks ” >

FEATURED LINK: Finding the Prototypical Packers Cornerback: A Peculiar Approach

FEATURED POST

I like posting my thoughts about the Green Bay Packers on this website, but since I frequent so many other Green Bay Packers blogs, at times it just makes more sense to pass on what another blogger is thinking about our team. Even though,Although I hope you come to this site often for your Green Bay football news and info, I still appreciate all of the other great site owners on the net, and I want to share what some of them have to say also.

Here is an article that I thought you might want to read:

Finding the Prototypical Packers Cornerback: A Peculiar Approach

Green Bay has looked to players with backgrounds in other positions and sports to build its ideal cover men.

Baseball players. Basketball players. Former wide receivers. The Green Bay Packers’ cornerback group sure is a diverse one.

Beginning with Sam Shields in 2010, the Packers have taken chances on more than a few athletes with varying skillsets that fit their cornerback mold. Shields, who played wide receiver at the University of Miami for three years before transitioning to corner as a senior, was an overwhelming success story for Green Bay as an undrafted free agent. His blazing 4.3 speed and 39-inch vertical were measurables that couldn’t be taught, signs of explosiveness that would provide Shields with incredible recovery speed and the ability to break on underthrown balls with ease.

In the seasons following Shields, Green Bay acquired a slew of talent with unique stories, including a few undrafted prospects this offseason.

EYE ON THE ENEMY: Mitchell Trubisky’s a huge project. The Bears know there are winding turns ahead

KEEPING A WATCHFUL EYE ON THE SWORN ENEMIES OF THE GREEN BAY PACKERS

What’s Up Green Bay Fanatics

It seems that a lot of Packers fanatics like to not only keep up with their hometown Packers, but also like to keep an eye on what the loathed rivals are up to, We decided to periodically see what’s going on in the enemy camp.

Here’s a link to keep you up to date on what the other teams in our division are up to

Mitchell Trubisky’s a huge project. The Bears know there are winding turns ahead

In Trubisky, Chicago may have acquired a superstar quarterback in April’s draft. The Bears understand it’ll take time to see him flourish.

When you know, you know, especially in the case of the normally tight-lipped and sarcastic Chicago Bears head coach John Fox. Fox isn’t known for saying much of anything of real substance to the media in his coaching career. He’s not obligated to and it’s not like most coaches reveal any real transgressions anyway. It’s the simple modus operandi of many in the NFL, not just Fox.

So when Fox offered genuine detailed praise for his rookie No. 2 overall pick in Mitchell Trubisky during this past weekend’s rookie minicamp, eyebrows furled everywhere.

“He’s had a great camp. We’ve really had a good productive camp,” said Fox of his supposed franchise passer and overall team.

A general statement in the light of coach-speak, sure. Heavy generalizations galore. But Fox didn’t stop dead in his tracks in the praise of his new quarterback. Nor did he mince on any specific details according to CSN.

“He’s very accurate, very smar ” >”>

FEATURED LINK: Packers 2017 90-Man Roster Ranking: Players #20-11

Featured Packers Article

Hey Green Bay Faithful

Here Is a post that I think you will enjoy taking a peek at.

Packers 2017 90-Man Roster Ranking: Players #20-11

How did APC arrange the Packers’ cornerbacks and receivers? Five players at those positions land in the teens in our roster ranking.

Now that the Green Bay Packers have wrapped up the 2017 NFL Draft and rookie minicamp, the team has finalized its 90-man roster heading into the start of OTAs. The Acme Packing Company writing staff has ranked the players in terms of the players’ overall talent levels and likelihoods to make an impact in Green Bay. We will present the single compiled ranking set, concluding this week.

We are nearing the end of our roster countdown, as we work our way into the teens today with players 20 through 11. APC’s contributors had some trouble coming to a consensus on some of these players, with numerous different combinations — particularly regarding the three cornerbacks that make the list in this grouping.

After seeing this group, you can probably tell who the top 10 will be, so stay tuned for 10-6 and 5-1 the next few days.

#20: G Jahri Evans

Evans isn’t his perennial All-Pro self any more at age ” >”>

It was pretty cool, as you went towards the field you heard crowd noise, the closer you got the louder the recording sounded. Then the door opened and it got even louder, much like the players hear on game day.

Go Packers!
