Nelson defended Rodgers in a recent interview with Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal.

“I don’t want to have to be on the phone and defend Aaron. He’s a great leader, we all believe that and believed that and still do,” Nelson said. “He’s hard on people, he demands a lot, but he demands a lot from himself. And I think any great quarterback out there does the same thing.]]> 5434903 Thu, 21 Feb 2019 22:39:01 EDT Packers Wire

A year later, we can look back and review those decisions, using the power of hindsight to understand if reality met expectation with each addition.

Three years, $30 million, $11 million guaranteed. Signed March 14.

High. The Packers made Graham the highest-paid tight end in the NFL, believing his size and history as a pass-catcher would unlock the Packers offense, allowing Aaron Rodgers to attack the middle of the field and providing more easy scores in the red zone]]> 5434721 Thu, 21 Feb 2019 18:27:01 EDT Packers Wire

In fact, according to Pro Football Focus, Rodgers’ 59 throwaways in 2018 were the most by a quarterback since the site started tracking the stat in 2006.

Dusty Evely of CheeseheadTV sought answers for the stockpile of throwaways, and what he found in the film and the numbers only served to accentuate the weaknesses that doomed the Packers offense last season.

Of the 59 throwaways, Evely found 23 to be the direct result of immediate pressure and another 21 the result of no one being open. Combined, the two factors account for the majority of Rodgers’ throwaways]]> 5431213 Fri, 15 Feb 2019 14:03:01 EDT Packers Wire

<![CDATA[POLL: Should the Packers pursue a trade for WR Antonio Brown?]]>
All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown has officially requested a trade from the Pittsburgh Steelers, and although the Steelers don’t have to honor the request, most times, when a star wants a trade, a deal is eventually facilitated.

Oddsmakers are already pegging the Green Bay Packers as one of the potential favorites to land Brown, a seven-time Pro Bowler and one of the few elite receivers in the game.

It’s a tantalizing scenario: Imagine Brown lining up opposite fellow Pro Bowler Davante Adams and catching passes from future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers, all while helping to open up running lanes for budding star running back Aaron Jones. The Packers offense could jump from wildly inconsistent and maddeningly disappointing in 2018 to borderline unstoppable with Brown, Rodgers and the rest of the supporting cast in 2019]]> 5429995 Wed, 13 Feb 2019 2:30:01 EDT Packers Wire
