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. 

Green and Bold: Getting Stale

Green and Bold: Getting Stale

I've been on the record for a long time as saying that despite the Packers' recent struggles under head coach Mike McCarthy, it would be reactionary and foolish to sever ties with him at this point in his tenure. After all, we're talking about a coach that has led his team to the playoffs eight times in 10 seasons, including a Super Bowl win and two additional trips to the conference championship game. This is the same coach who arrived in Green Bay a season after Aaron Rodgers was drafted and dramatically adjusted his mechanics in his offseason quarterback school. A passer who used to hold the ball up by his ear and struggled to throw deep at Cal has now thrown some of the prettiest deep balls the league has seen, largely thanks to McCarthy's tutelage.  So maybe Mike McCarthy should be the team's quarterbacks coach.

Green and Bold: Where Are All the WRs?

Green and Bold: Where Are All the WRs?

The Green Bay Packers did a bold thing when they kept seven wide receivers (and only three inside linebackers) on the 53-man roster at the end of final cuts. After struggling on offense last season and dealing with injuries to multiple pass-catchers, the Packers clearly wanted to keep their homegrown talent on their roster and off other teams', as many players likely would not have gotten through waivers to be placed on the practice squad.  However, for a team that has seven wide receivers at its disposal—all of whom are active on game day, given their roles on special teams—the Packers sure aren't using them much on the field.
