Green and Bold: It's Time to Move On From Letroy Guion

Green and Bold: It's Time to Move On From Letroy Guion

How many strikes will it take before the Green Bay Packers organization decides that Letroy Guion is out?

Green and Bold: Where Does Brett Hundley's Value Lie?

Green and Bold: Where Does Brett Hundley's Value Lie?

Picture this (and then knock on the nearest wooden object): Aaron Rodgers goes down with an injury early in the 2018 season, and the player sitting...

Green and Bold: Kevin King's Ascent Begins

Green and Bold: Kevin King's Ascent Begins

It might take three months or three years, but rookie cornerback Kevin King could eventually become a starting outside corner for the Packers. However, the team has yet to really get him on the field and see what he can do.  Until now. 

Green and Bold: Which Packers Free Agent Signing Will Have Biggest Impact?

Green and Bold: Which Packers Free Agent Signing Will Have Biggest Impact?

Having some firepower at tight end this season will be a huge boon to the Green Bay Packers offense, but it's very likely that the free-agent addition that will have the biggest impact on the field this season is neither Martellus Bennett nor Lance Kendricks, but cornerback Davon House. 

Green and Bold: Can Jayrone Elliott Make the Jump?

Green and Bold: Can Jayrone Elliott Make the Jump?

The Green Bay Packers allowed linebacker Jayrone Elliott to reach free agency back in March for the first time in his career, but, thankfully for their pass-rushing corps, he decided to re-sign with the team after weighing his options. 

Green and Bold: Make No Mistake, Ty Montgomery is THE Guy

Green and Bold: Make No Mistake, Ty Montgomery is THE Guy

 It's time to stop asking if Montgomery is capable of being a workhorse back for the Packers and start paying attention to the strides he continues to make at the position. 

Green and Bold: Who Will Return Punts?

Green and Bold: Who Will Return Punts?

The Packers will feel the loss of Micah Hyde all over the field in 2017, obviously in the secondary but also on special teams, where he returned 76 punts over his four-year career in Green Bay.

Green and Bold: Packers Rookie Minicamp Highlights

Green and Bold: Packers Rookie Minicamp Highlights

On Friday, May 5 and Saturday, May 6, the Green Bay Packers held their rookie minicamp for their 10 draft selections and additional undrafted free agents and tryouts.

Green and Bold: Time to Prioritize Speed, Length Outside

Green and Bold: Time to Prioritize Speed, Length Outside

It's no secret that the Green Bay Packers seemed to actively address two traits in their NFL draft selections in 2017—specifically, at defensive back—that have been missing from the roster in recent years: speed and length. The question now is whether those traits, which second-round cornerback selection Kevin King displays in spades, can win out for a starting role on Green Bay's defense in 2017.

Green and Bold: Packers Are More Than an Adrian Peterson Away From a Super Bowl

Green and Bold: Packers Are More Than an Adrian Peterson Away From a Super Bowl

While it's hard not to be intrigued by the thought of what one-time league MVP and seven-time Pro Bowler Peterson could do in the Green Bay Packers offense, which finished 20th in the league in rushing in 2016, there's not likely to be a financial scenario that makes the move worth it for Green Bay.

Not many things are for certain when it comes to the Green Bay Packers and the elusive Ted Thompson, but when evaluating the moves the team could...

Green and Bold: Checking on the Cap

Green and Bold: Checking on the Cap

512 games later, another NFL season is in the books and, once again, we find ourselves bracing for free agency.

Green and Bold: Fool Me Once...

Green and Bold: Fool Me Once...

For a general manager who doesn't make a splash in free agency all that often, the Packers' Ted Thompson sure has been in the news lately, linked to rumors that this year he'll do just that. 

Green and Bold: This Way, Dom Capers

Green and Bold: This Way, Dom Capers

In 2010, the Packers defense got them into the Super Bowl. In virtually every season since, it's killed them in the playoffs. Aaron Rodgers and this offense deserve another ring, and as the window continues to close, perhaps it's time to make a drastic change to ensure they get one. 

Green and Bold: Shootout!

One of the best videos you could find on YouTube is a Mayne Event segment from ESPN called "Shootout!" It features a (very) young Aaron Rodgers...

Green and Bold: It Begins and Ends with Run Defense

Green and Bold: It Begins and Ends with Run Defense

The Packers boasted one of the league's top run defenses in the beginning of the 2016 NFL season, when they held their first four opponents to 50 or fewer yards gained on the ground. And now, as they prepare to face the Dallas Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliott, the unit will need to once again return to dominant form if Green Bay is to have any hope of defeating the Cowboys to move onto the NFC Championship Game.   

Green and Bold: Micah Hyde - Secret Weapon

Green and Bold: Micah Hyde - Secret Weapon

On Sunday night against the Detroit Lions, however, the unit suffered a series of additional blows. Quinten Rollins left the game strapped to a board to go to the hospital after a scary-looking hit to his head/neck; per Mike McCarthy, he avoided serious injury but there's no word on whether he'll be able to go on Sunday against the Giants. Both Damarious Randall and Makinton Dorleant left the game with knee injuries, Randall is considered day-to-day, while Dorleant said initial tests showed no major structural damage.  It's been a rough road for the Packers secondary, which has been hampered by injuries all season. The team has needed leaders and playmakers to step up from within its ranks in its postseason push, and a key weapon who could be instrumental in the playoffs became clear in Week 17: defensive back Micah Hyde. 

Green and Bold: Always Be Closing

Green and Bold: Always Be Closing

The Packers offense has been one of the best in the league when it comes to putting points on the board early and often; Green Bay ranks No.

The Packers defense has been its secret weapon in Green Bay's wins over the Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Bears the last two weeks, compiling a plus...

Green and Bold: No. 1 RB Was There All Along

Green and Bold: No. 1 RB Was There All Along

The Packers have been searching for their No. 1 running back all season after starter Eddie Lacy went on injured reserve, even going so far as to sign not one but two free agents in their pursuit of a balanced offense.  But the player who will prove to be the Packers' lead rusher has been on the roster since training camp. He was just playing a different position. 

Green and Bold: Gunter Rising

Green and Bold: Gunter Rising

The 6-6 Green Bay Packers have gotten themselves into a situation in which every game has become a must-win. Two games back from the Detroit Lions and tied, record-wise, with the Minnesota Vikings but not currently holding the tiebreaker against them, Green Bay now has to beat the Seahawks, Bears, Vikings, and Lions to stay in the hunt for the playoffs.  Needless to say, it's imperative that every player turns it up to 11 over this final stretch and taps into his deepest reserve of aggression. The Packers have to want this more than anyone else. And, as far as the secondary goes, that's exactly what cornerback LaDarius Gunter has been doing. 

Green and Bold: It's on the Defense Now

Green and Bold: It's on the Defense Now

The Packers offense has been quietly improving for a few weeks now, but it's the improving defense that will have to lead the team to the playoffs. 

Green and Bold: Half and Half

Green and Bold: Half and Half

One of the most frustrating aspects of watching the Green Bay Packers flounder during the 2016 season is the fact that it doesn't always seem like it has to be this way.
