We have a new NFL Pick'em page!

Go to Fantasy > NFL Pick'em then click the Your Picks tab to give it a go!


I think this is a drastic improvement over what we had the last few years and with the changes here is a little explanation of what you're going to see.

I've said often Javon Walker was the last great wide receiver talent the Packers have had and if you go back further, Sterling Sharpe. That being said, I've read Jordy Nelson is not a number one wide receiver.

That has me thinking, what is a number one wide receiver?

Last season just six wide receivers had more RECEPTIONS than Jordy Nelson.
Last season just three wide receivers had more RECEIVING YARDS than Jordy Nelson.
Last season just one wide receiver had more TOUCHDOWNS than Jordy Nelson.
Last season just nine wide receivers had more 20+ YARDS RECEPTIONS than Jordy Nelson.
Last season just two wide receivers had more 1st DOWN RECEPTIONS than Jordy Nelson.

If you were to put Jordy Nelson on any other NFL team, he would be no worse than the 2 on nearly every team except the Falcons.

  1. Lions have Calvin Johnson
  2. Steelers have Antonio Brown
  3. Giants have Odell Beckham Jr
  4. Falcons have Julio Jones and Roddy White
  5. Broncos have Demaryius Thomas
  6. Bengals have A.J. Green
  7. Cowboys have Dez Bryant
  8. Cardinals have Larry Fitzgerald
  9. Colts have T.Y. Hilton


There you have it folks, Jordy Nelson is indeed a number one receiver. Deal with it!!

Oh and for those who will ask about Percy Harvin, sure he has talent coming out of his ears. Big deal!! A damn bowl in a China Shop lasts longer with a Bull hopped up on Red Bull than Harvin does in the NFL. Talent doesn't mean squat if you can't produce on the field and if you're always hurt, you're useless.

Class dismissed!

Punter Tim Masthay has punted 11 times for 448 yards with a long of 56. That averages just under 41 yards a punt. For comparison sake, Masthay has not averaged less than 43.5 yards a punt during an entire regular season since 2010.

Mathay's eight punts went for 36, 51, 56, 44, 45, 46, 39 and 29 yards against the Steelers. While his overall average for the Steelers game (43.3) topped his average for Patriots game (34.0) I am thinking the Packers need to bring in another punter.

Any Punter's out there or is the lack of a quality replacement the reason the Packers are going for it on 4th down so often?

Today we fans will certainly be confirmed of what we all suspect; Jordy Nelson is going to be placed on season ending injured reserve due to a torn ACL suffered against the Steelers.

Hold on, not all is lost!!!

Hey, if we had-to lose a starter at any offensive position, we all would have said wide receiver would be the least damaging, right? Yes, I know because I read it all off-season and training camp.

What all need to do is take a deep breath, do it again, and once more and realize the Packers offense is not a one trick pony, unless that one trick is Aaron Rodgers of course. The Packers offense is a spread the ball around offense incorporating all offensive weapons. Heck, Jarrett 'where did ya go' Boykin even had a good season at wide receiver in this system.

Supporting this is take a peak at what former wide receivers (e.g. James Jones, Greg Jennings.) have done after leaving the Packers. They found themselves on the back of a milk carton and are on their second teams already.

If you think Davante Adams is going to replace the production of Jordy Nelson, sorry, don't hold your breath. It will not happen.

What will happen is the rest of the Packers offense will pick up the production piece by piece like the well oiled machine they are under Aaron Rodgers.

Get familiar with these wide receiver names because these are all you're going to see opening day for the Green Bay Packers.

  1. Randall Cobb
  2. Davante Adams
  3. Ty Montgomery
  4. Jeff Janis
  5. Larry Pinkard
  6. Myles White / Jared Abbrederris



And guess what? The Packers offense is still going to finish in the top five in scoring by the end of the regular season.

Those are the words that Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told Andrew Quarless after his July 4th arrest for (allegedly) firing two shots in the air during an argument. Per Jason Wilde when Quarless was asked how the conversation went, “He was very upset. Very upset. I just apologized to him for bringing negativity to this place. We have a great group of character guys. There’s just so much character in this locker room. I just apologized for bringing negative because you never want to bring negative to something like this.” said Quarless.

McCarthy handled this very well. Make it known you are disappointed and also make it known the individual has your support to correct the mistake. Because if ever a mistake means you're done, then all is lost. We all make mistakes, you make mistakes, I make mistakes, every one of us makes mistakes and all we can do is learn from them and not repeat them.

Making things infinitely more difficult, Quarless and his long time girlfriend suffered a parents worst fear when they lost their newborn daughter during delivery.

The month of July has left a powerful impact on Quarless. “Life is serious. I'm a role model to a lot of kids. You can't take things for granted and I don't take this organization for granted and I don't take my position for granted. I'm just really, really thankful. That's the main word I can really use is thankful for this group of guys. My whole mindset about life has kind of changed a lot. With my daughter, I promise you, I was looking to find a little bit of happiness in my daughter. You just can’t take life for granted.”

Here's hoping that Quarless can somehow, someway focus on the more important things than football.

Several days ago I shared a graphic in a block called Think About It and those of you who mentioned it, put a smile on my face. I figured it would be neat to expand on it so now we have several hundred graphics that one will be randomly selected every 18 hours.

Enjoy! Cool

As you have noticed, Shawn and Wayne have reached points where they have less time for PackersHome.com. Both have been extremely helpful with PackersHome.com for many years and also keeping me in line when needed. I am very thankful and appreciative for their help. Thank you!

Several weeks ago, [USERLINK]Porforis[/USERLINK] agreed to donate some of his time to help make PackersHome.com a gooder place for everyone. He's going to help reviewing reported posts and hopefully give a fresh perspective.

This exceptional addition will allow me to focus more on adding features to the site, ensuring it is informative and enjoyable from a user standpoint. I've always preferred to ink up random stories while being the geek-behind-the-keyboard and this will allow me to focus more on that.


Please welcome Porforis to the PackersHome.com Staff!
