    Alvin Kamara’s fantasy football value could not be higher than right now.As it turns out, having a top-two pick in your fantasy football snake draft wasn’t a great thing this year. In most leagues, Saquon Barkley of the New York Giants and Christian McCaffrey of the Carolina Panthers went one-two in some order. With Barkley out for the season and McCaffrey going on IR, Alvin Kamara of the New Orleans Saints has emerged as the new RB1 league-wide. The Fantasy Footballers certainly think so. Though there are other guys worth being considered, such as Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys and Aaron Jones of the Green Bay Packers, once again, it is Kamara’s receiving ability out of the backfield that...
    Packers head coach Matt LaFleur was livid over a cut block by a Lions’ offensive lineman. Matt LaFleur almost lost an important defensive lineman to an injury on Sunday, so his ire over the circumstances makes perfect sense. “There’s no place for that in this game,” La Fleur said. Fortunately for the Packers, Lancaster wasn’t seriously injured. He was able to get back in the game. Had it been different Green Bay would have been seriously hampered on the defensive line. The game was still tight in the second quarter when Lancaster went down. However, Aaron Rodgers scored his second touchdown of the day with seconds left in the half to put the Packers up 17-14. They never looked back,...
    Getty Aaron Jones runs through the Lions defense. The Detroit Lions struggled in a major way against the Green Bay Packers, and even in spite of the fast start, by the time the afternoon was over the result looked the same. Detroit’s defense struggled in a major way, their offense wasn’t able to score enough in the second half and their special teams once again left 3 points on the field. Their coaching staff was abysmal yet again, and there were struggles all over the place in between the lines. How should the team be graded for this week? Here’s a look at the grades for a Week 3 effort that was frustrating at best for the team....
    The Green Bay Packers have seemingly already locked up the NFC North after a dominant win over the Detroit Lions.  Go ahead and call the division folks, because no one is going to be able to catch up to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Remember when haters were trying to say Rodgers would be distracted after the team selected Jordan Love in the NFL Draft? So much for that. The Packers have started off a perfect 2-0 on the season, making easy work of the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1 and following that up be absolutely destroying the Detroit Lions in Week 2. You might as well give them the NFC North title already, because this show is...
    Davante Adams is putting up video game-type numbers for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.  The Green Bay Packers sent a massive statement in their Week 1 win against the Minnesota Vikings, with Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the offense truly lighting up the field from start to finish. While much of the attention went to Rodgers for just how dominant he was throwing the ball around, we can’t forget about how tremendous Davante Adams was. The superstar wideout has been Rodgers’ most trustworthy option catching the pigskin, and his performance on Sunday reminded NFL fans everywhere why he’s one of the best receivers in the game. #Updated after Week 1: Over his last six games, Davante Adams...
    Aaron Rodgers once again looked like a candidate for the NFL MVP on Sunday. The Green Bay Packers quarterback shredded apart the Minnesota Vikings in a convincing 43-34 victory. Rodgers threw for 364 passing yards and four touchdowns, which included two beautiful touchdown strikes to wide receivers Davante Adams and Marques Valdes-Scantling late in the first half to put the Packers up 22-7 over the Vikings. RODGERS AT EASE AS PACKERS ROLL PAST VIKINGS 43-34 The win was a statement for the Packers, but Rodgers said it was “one of the strangest experiences I've had in the NFL,” because it was played in front of no fans at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota. Rodgers said that he thought back to...
    Aaron Rodgers missed having fans in the stands when the Packers beat the Vikings. Aaron Rodgers has appeared in 201 NFL games. He’s seen a lot of things throughout his 15-year career. What he didn’t see on Sunday during the season opener against the Vikings was fans in the stands. And it weirded him out. “[It was] one of the strangest experiences I’ve had in the NFL,” Rodgers said after leading his team to a 43-34 victory over Minnesota.Without fans, Aaron Rodgers wasn’t sure what plays were good.It wasn’t just seeing no fans in the stands that set the game apart. It was not hearing the roar of the crowd. “It doesn’t let you know that a play is a...
    Former NFL coach Rex Ryan said Sunday he was not a fan of the Green Bay Packers selecting Jordan Love as the No. 26 pick of the draft with Aaron Rodgers still the starting quarterback. Ryan, who is now an NFL analyst on ESPN, said on “Sunday NFL Countdown” that the pick was “ridiculous.” GREEN BAY PACKERS: WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT THE TEAM'S 2020 SEASON “The most ridiculous thing I’ve seen in the 50 years I’ve watched the draft,” the former New York Jets head coach said, according to The Spun. Rodgers opened up about the Love pick in July on NFL Network host Kyle Brandt’s podcast. “When they traded up, I definitely perked up a little bit,” Rodgers said. “And...
    The Green Bay Packers will reportedly be staying in their locker room while the National Anthem is played on Sunday.  When the Green Bay Packers take on the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, you won’t be seeing Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams and the rest of their teammates out on the field as early as you might have imagined. That’s because Green Bay has made the decision to not take the gridiron for the National Anthem. According to NFL insider Tom Pelissero, the Packers have decided as a team that they’ll be staying inside their locker room while both National Anthems are being played at U.S Bank Stadium in Minnesota. Just said on @NFLGameDay: As of now, the #Packers plan to stay...
    The Packers made the most shocking selection of the 2020 NFL Draft when they traded up to take former Utah State quarterback Jordan Love No. 26 overall in the first round. Love, a raw prospect with great upside, was rumored to be landing with other teams who had a QB need now or the near future, including the Saints and Colts. Instead, Love landed in Green Bay, behind eight-time Pro Bowler and one-time league and Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers is 36 going into the season and will turn 37 in December. There’s no doubt Love (6-4, 219), who doesn’t turn 22 until November, has natural promise with his arm and athleticism. He’s got prototypical size and potential...
    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hired Mike McCarthy as the ninth head coach in franchise history on Jan. 7, a move that followed the end of a 10-year run by Jason Garrett.   Why did Jones go behind enemy lines? After all, McCarthy is a Pittsburgh native who spent 13 years as the coach of the Green Bay Packers.  McCarthy’s rocky relationship with Aaron Rodgers in his final seasons with the Packers overshadowed an otherwise solid run. McCarthy can bring some of that success to a franchise that has not been to the Super Bowl in 25 years.   MORE: Ranking the NFL’s head coaches 1-32 Mike McCarthy’s Packers record McCarthy ranks fifth among active coaches with a .618 career winning percentage.

    Green Bay Packers go up against Minnesota Vikings in their opening game of the 2020 NFL season on Sunday. Both teams play in the NFC North Division. The game promises to be a high-octane affair as both are eyeing a spot in the NFL playoffs this year. However, Aaron Rodgers-led Packers have a bone to pick against Sunday’s opponents. The veteran NFL quarterback is entering his 15th season in the league. He has been a top-performing player over the last two years but can he keep up that consistency in 2020 as well? A certain NFL analyst says ‘yes’. ALSO READ – “I really have a quarterback” – Leonard Fournette In Awe Of Legendary Tom Brady NFL talk show host...
    Aaron Rodgers said Wednesday that despite the Green Bay Packers nearly making the Super Bowl last season he believes the team is “flying under the radar.” Rodgers told reporters that there has been a lot of talk about other teams in the NFC but the Packers have sort of been left out of the conversation about the best teams in the conference. GREEN BAY PACKERS: WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT THE TEAM'S 2020 SEASON “I think the beauty is there's a lot of conversation about other teams whether it's Tom [Brady] in Tampa, or the teams that were really solid last year: New Orleans, San Francisco, Seattle, Philadelphia and Dallas with Mike [McCarthy] and what they've done with their roster.

    Minnesota Vikings star pass-rusher Danielle Hunter may miss the team’s Week 1 matchup against the rival Green Bay Packers. Vikings star pass-rusher Danielle Hunter has missed the last three weeks of practice, per Will Ragatz of Sports Illustrated, and his mysterious injury could affect his availability for Minnesota’s crucial Week 1 matchup with the division rival Green Bay Packers. NFL Network insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported that Hunter’s status for Sunday’s game is up in the air, and with injury reports likely to be released soon, fans may finally be clued in on the type of injury that Hunter is dealing with, as well as its severity. #Vikings DE Danielle Hunter’s status for Sunday is very much in...
    With all the drama in the offseason, you would have never guessed that the Green Bay Packers were only one win from making the Super Bowl. The Packers are coming off an incredible 13-3 season and an NFC North division title. The Packers lost to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game. Rumors about Aaron Rodgers and an apparent rift with the organization grew louder after the team drafted Jordan Love in the first round of the draft. Despite having a second straight 4,000 passing-yard season, Green Bay opted to look toward the future in lieu of giving Rodgers another weapon to throw to. Instead, the Packers bring back the same receiving corps as last year along with...
    The Green Bay Packers went 13-3 in Matt LaFleur’s first season to win the NFC North. But after overachieving in 2019, their regression back to reality will lead to missing the NFL playoffs in 2020. Sporting News is picking the Packers to slide by four games and finish at 9-7, just missing the postseason as the team loses the tiebreaker — to the reigning NFC champion 49ers — for the seventh and final spot in the new, expanded NFC field. The conference is loaded with Super Bowl contenders. Seven teams — the 49ers, Buccaneers, Saints, Eagles, Cowboys, Seahawks and the division rival Vikings — all have better Las Vegas odds to win it all than the Packers this season.

    Aaron Rodgers is entering 2020 with much to prove, and little time in which to do it. As Aaron Rodgers goes, so too, generally, do the Green Bay Packers. That’s not only true in the most obvious sense—when Rodgers plays lights-out, the Packers win—though of course that’s part of it. But in recent years, Rodgers’ mind-set—his answers in press conferences, body language in camp, and overall demeanor—have been remarkably accurate predictors of how the team will do that season. With Rodgers and the Packers, those who follow the team closely have noticed an almost preternatural cause-and-effect relationship. Consider: in late Sept. 2014, the Packers were in the midst of a 1-2 start for the third consecutive season. Fans online had...
    Getty Members of the Green Bay Packers stretch during Green Bay Packers Training Camp at Lambeau Field on August 20, 2020 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Cut week has finally arrived. The Green Bay Packers wrapped up their 12th and final training camp practice on Saturday with a live scrimmage at Lambeau Field and will now spend the rest of their lead-up to the 2020 season preparing for their Week 1 matchup at the Minnesota Vikings. But before kickoff, the Packers must also decide which 27 players will not be joining them on their initial 53-man roster with the mandatory cutdown deadline set for 3 p.m. CT this Saturday. Here’s a projection of how the Packers’ active roster could...
    GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers are counting on consistency to get them over the top after finishing a game away from the Super Bowl three of the last six years. Green Bay returns much of the nucleus of a team that went 13-3 and won the NFC North while benefiting from good fortune. The Packers stayed healthy last season and also went 9-1 in games decided by eight points or fewer. “You can’t take anything for granted in the NFL, and no two seasons are alike,” Packers coach Matt LaFleur said. “This year certainly has some unique circumstances, and we talked about that all offseason. Whoever can handle these circumstances the best will have a tremendous...
    The 2020 season promises to be another rollercoaster ride for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. The seasoned NFL veteran is once again at the center of debates in the build-up to the upcoming season. The arrival of young Utah State rookie Jordan Love was met with a mixed response in Wisconsin. Packers fans have grown accustomed to watching Rodgers play regularly at Lambeau Field, week after week. However, Love’s acquisition could hint that Rodgers’ time with the Packers is nearing its end. There were rumors that the veteran NFL quarterback is ‘unhappy’ and could disrupt the atmosphere in the dressing room. All false. The two-time NFL MVP is looking sharp in preseason training. In fact, A-Rod has also...
    (CNN)LeBron James and the Green Bay Packers are among those in professional sports who responded on social media Monday to the shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin. Ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers' playoff game Monday, James called for justice in a Twitter post linked to the video showing the Sunday incident in which Blake, a Black man, was shot and critically injured by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin.Video of the shooting, released on Facebook, sparked protests in the city.

    Yes, despite drafting Jordan Love, the Packers found another underdog story further down the depth chart Tim Boyle was the Packers backup QB in 2019 to the chagrin of most outside of Green Bay. Aaron Rodgers isn’t necessarily injury-prone, but he’s been on the mend enough that at this advanced stage of his career, a reliable backup is essential. As it turns out, the Packers might’ve had one all along. Boyle was signed as a UDFA in 2018 and has since beat out just about every potential Rodgers’ backup, including DeShone Kizer, for the job. Green Bay was forced to give him an opportunity last season, and despite the team’s decision to draft Jordan Love in the first round of the...
    Despite having a rough rookie season, Rashan Gary could make Green Bay’s pass rush elite in 2020. Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Rashan Gary had a rough rookie season in 2019, posting just two sacks in limited snaps. However, with a larger role expected in 2020 and a stacked pass-rushing group around him, Gary could be a prime breakout candidate in his second season. Za’Darius and Preston Smith both posted double-digit sacks in 2019, and the recently-extended Kenny Clark is a dominant presence on the interior. Green Bay’s coaches and beat writers have raved about Gary’s athleticism and drive, and his position coach seems confident that he’ll burst onto the scene this season. Think what you want of Rashan Garys...
    Mike McCarthy has his sights set on bringing a Super Bowl back to Dallas. The Dallas Cowboys haven’t been relevant in the Super Bowl discussion since the mid-90s when Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, and Emmitt Smith were responsible for leading the franchise to three titles. Now, they have a Super Bowl-winning head coach in Mike McCarthy who believes that if a team is not trying to win a Super Bowl, he questions why they are in the business, according to ESPN’s Todd Archer. Mike McCarthy won Super Bowl XLV  in 2010 with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback in his prime. Ten years later, Rodgers is still in Green Bay under second-year Head Coach Matt LaFleur and has to navigate the Packers...
    Next1 of 5Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse The Packers look to make their first Super Bowl appearance since 2010. It’s a proud franchise that owns the record for most NFL championships. Some people scoff at the Green Bay Packers’ 13 titles but it is worth noting that four of them have come in Super Bowl Era (for those who inexplicably only count half of NFL history). A year ago, the club came within one victory of getting back to Super Sunday. But first-time NFL head coach Matt LaFleur, who guided the Pack to the NFC North title and a solid 13-3 record, saw his team blasted by the San Francisco 49ers in the conference championship game. This...
    ESPN’s Adam Schefter doesn’t think there was any ambiguity in the message the Packers sent to 36-year-old Aaron Rodgers on draft day by trading up to select Jordan Love over a wide receiver. “It wasn’t just a double slap [in the face],” the NFL insider said while mimicking a slapping motion on ESPN’s “Get Up” on Wednesday, “it was a triple slap because they not only took the quarterback, the replacement — they traded up to get him. They gave up an extra pick that they could have gotten another wide receiver — bam, bam, bam!” After a 13-3 regular season finish and a gut-wrenching loss to the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game, the Packers curiously chose to draft Love,...
    The Green Bay Packers’ selection of Jordan Love can go many ways and one of them could be a future trade similar to one the New England Patriots pulled off for Jimmy Garoppolo. To this day, NFL fans are still dumbfounded by the Green Bay Packers decision to select Utah State signal-caller Jordan Love. The confusion had nothing to do with Love’s skills because he’s an extremely talented quarterback. Rather, it was general manager Brian Gutekunst pulling off the move despite the fact that Aaron Rodgers‘ massive four-year contract extension kicks in this season! Many expect that, eventually, either Rodgers will demand a trade out of Green Bay by next year the earliest or the Packers will move on from...
    David Bakhtiari appears to have suffered a practice injury and it’s the last thing the Green Bay Packers need right now.  The football gods simply have not been kind to Aaron Rodgers over the past six months. To make matters worse, one of his best friends on the team and the man in charge of protecting his blindside is already getting hurt early on in training camp? On Tuesday, starting Green Bay Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari was seen limping off the field after getting dinged up. If he is forced to miss any time whatsoever, it’d be a big blow for Green Bay. More so, it’d be just devastating news for Rodgers, who quite frankly has suffered enough this offseason. LT David...
    Brett Favre finished his career with the rival Minnesota Vikings, so anything is possible when it comes to great quarterbacks moving on from the Green Bay Packers. Even Aaron Rodgers leading the Chicago Bears into Lambeau Field. “Oh, I would love to see that,” Favre said Tuesday on Complex’s Load Management podcast. Why? “Just from a standpoint of we have killed the Bears collectively,” Favre said. “Bears fans would probably be like, ‘I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I am so glad Aaron Rodgers is on our team.” The Packers kept a young Rodgers on the bench for the first three years of his career as Favre continued to play at a high level. After losing the 2007 NFC Championship Game...
    Mike Daniels gives the Cincinnati Bengals’ defensive line even more bite.The Cincinnati Bengals added another piece to their defensive line with Mike Daniels.

While it’s not quite a Joe Pesci in Goodfellas moment, Favre observed his former team drafting Aaron Rodgers eventual replacement with as much surprise as everyone else. Bewilderment more specifically describes what Favre’s reaction. “I was a little bewildered at the pick,” Favre told Da Windy City podcast. “Nothing against Jordan Love.” It’s not the fact that the Packers drafted who many assume to be Rodgers’ replacement, it’s when and how they did it....

    Everson Griffen has been heavily linked to the Green Bay Packers over the last few months, according to Gary Davenport of Bleacher Report. He wrote on Saturday that if the Minnesota Vikings do anything with the rest of this offseason, they should find a way to make sure Griffen does not end up with their division rival. He added that the Griffen’s former team and Packers are considered the biggest competitors to win the NFC North.

    Every year the NFL asks players (not all of them) to submit votes ranking the best of the best in their sport. Because everyone loves rankings and debating why one player is better than another, this list is always a topic of discussion. And because the players themselves voted, it adds an extra layer of intrigue because there’s not a single writer you can direct your anger toward. Even going beyond the debates, there is some value in making the list. Players who make the Top 100 feel honored, and can feel a sense of accomplishment by improving themselves year-over-year. SN RANKINGS: QB | RB | WR | TE But before we get into the full Top 100 list,...

When the Packers selected quarterback Jordan Love with the 26th-overall pick in the NFL Draft, everyone started to wonder what their plan was. Aaron Rodgers still has four years left on his contract and is coming off another extremely solid season. The Packers are clearly preparing for the future without Aaron Rodgers and are expecting a drop off from the future Hall of Famer in the coming years.

Jimmy Graham became yet another statistic of failed free agency signings for the Green Bay Packers. He underperformed in his two seasons with the Packers, and was met with little resistance after departing from the team facility for good. The Chicago Bears, shockingly, ran over to Graham’s camp to secure his services. They locked him in...
    The NFL 2020 season schedule was made public earlier this year. As per the official announcement, the NFL preseason starts on August 8, 2020. Kansas City Chiefs take on Houston Texans in the opening game of the regular NFL season this year. However, league officials and NFLPA members are still chalking out the details regarding player safety and salary cuts.  Amidst all this uncertainty and the Coronavirus pandemic, there is a lot of confusion amongst players in the league. Many NFL stars have spoken out in public about issues regarding their safety and that of their families. Despite all this chaos, Green Bay Packers’ star quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, remains optimistic that the 2020 season will go ahead as planned. ALSO...

He had incredibly big shoes to fill when he stepped in after Green Bay Packers GOAT Brett Favre, and he’s done an amazing job. That job hasn’t gone unnoticed as someone on Twitter compiled the greatest throws of his career and seeing it packaged that way is actually pretty damn awesome.

The Green Bay Packers are in an interesting position heading into the 2020 season. Aaron Rodgers remains the star of the team, but Jordan Love is hot on his heels after being taken in the first round. One would think the Packers plan to maximize the contention window while Rodgers continues to play at a high...
    Next1 of 4Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse Five Packers starters are slated for free agency after 2020, and cap limitations likely mean these three will sign elsewhere. The Green Bay Packers found plenty of success in Matt LaFleur’s first season as head coach finishing 13-3 and reaching the NFC Championship after two consecutive losing seasons. However, after selecting Jordan Love in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, Green Bay’s window to compete for a Super Bowl appears to be closing. With multiple key players facing contract years in 2020, Green Bay may see the upcoming season as its best chance to give Aaron Rodgers a second ring.

    Getty NFL Network's James Jones gave his take on the three teams he sees the NFC North sending to the playoff in 2020. Former Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones knows how competitive the NFC North can be. After winning four straight division titles with the Packers from 2011 to 2014, Jones and the rest of the NFL have watched each team win at least a share of the league crown since 2015. In seven of the past 10 seasons, the division has sent multiple teams to the postseason, a trend Jones said has a good chance to continue on NFL Network: I’m gonna go to the division that l play with and that’s the NFC North....
    Jadeveon Clowney, Seattle Seahawks. (Photo by Rob Leiter/Getty Images) Jadeveon Clowney is still without an NFL team. Could the Green Bay Packers be a good landing spot for him? It’s been a strange NFL offseason (mostly due to the COVID-19 pandemic) and one of the weirdest aspects has been watching former No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney still left unsigned. Clowney spent the first five years of his career with the Houston Texans (the team who took him No. 1 overall in 2014), but he was traded to the Seahawks in 2019 and spent just one season there. Now he’s looking for a new team, which will be his third team in three years, and the Green Bay Packers look...

    Brett Favre thinks the Green Bay Packers should use rookie quarterback Jordan Love like Taysom Hill. The Packers sent shockwaves through the NFL when they took Love in the first round of the NFL draft. Now everyone wants to know when he’ll see the field. Favre thinks he should get some packages right away. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) “I think there’s ways to incorporate it much like Taysom Hill with the Saints. Use him as a halfback, a halfback pass, but occasionally let him run it just to show that you’ll do that. Something like that,” Favre said during a recent interview with TMZ.

    Recently, former NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall appeared on The Herd with Colin Cowherd. The 36-year-old opened up on various subjects and had a very low opinion on the Green Bay Packers and how they treated Aaron Rodgers. Cowherd himself was not too impressed with the Packers either, and criticized their lack of aggression in their moves. Clearly, Brandon Marshall echoed the same sentiments, especially when referring to Aaron Rodgers. He said, “It’s too late. Come on man, they should’ve won two Super Bowls in the last five years. To me, Aaron Rodgers is my favorite quarterback in the NFL, but you wasted this guy’s career. You got one Super Bowl out of Aaron Rodgers? Are you kidding me? It’s...
    Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers. (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images) Have the Packers wasted Aaron Rodgers? Aaron Rodgers remains arguably the most talented quarterback of his generation, but despite the individual accolades, the Green Bay Packers aren’t accustomed to the same team success seen by the likes of Tom Brady‘s New England Patriots. In fact, they’re not even close. The Packers have won just one Super Bowl during Rodgers’ tenure in Green Bay, and despite making it to the NFC Championship game last season, Brian Gutekunst spent their first pick on quarterback Jordan Love out of Utah State. He is the hand-picked successor to eventually replace Rodgers in Green Bay. And that’s why former NFL receiver Brandon Marshall...
    The NFL, being a contact sport, requires players to compete with shoulder pads and helmets as they are prone to knocks whilst on the field. Opposition defenses target wide receivers and quarterbacks as they are the main offensive weapons. As a result, injuries are second nature to some of these players. At times they play through the pain barrier or they accept fate and take time away from the sport. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been in the NFL for 15 seasons and started in 12 of those seasons. He too has had his fair share of injuries over his time before ‘Packer Nation’. Here, we take a look at some of the times the Super Bowl XLV...

    New York Giants: New EDGE Kyler Fackrell Will Be A Huge Boost To The Team’s Pass Rush By: Anthony Rivardo June 21, 2020 ShareTweet0 Shares The New York Giants‘ defense has struggled to rush quarterbacks in recent years. The team has not had a premier edge rusher in quite some time and has missed out on the top prospects in recent drafts, such as Josh Allen and Chase Young. A primary pass-rusher is arguably the Giants’ biggest need. However, not having that top-tier rusher might not be necessary for the 2020 New York Giants. Patrick Graham, the new defensive coordinator, is known for running an aggressive, blitz-heavy scheme that generates a fair amount of pressure. On top of...
    Getty Adrian Peterson was named the Vikings best player of the decade by ESPN. When it came to naming ESPN’s NFC North All-Decade team, few players were more of a shoo-in than former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson. Peterson is the only non-quarterback player to win the NFL’s Most Valuable Player award after he rushed for 2,097 yards in the 2012 regular season. ESPN’s Courtney Cronin broke down Peterson’s selection the team along: “This was about as unanimous a decision as there is. Peterson was the only non-quarterback to win the NFL MVP award during the past decade and holds countless titles and awards from his time with the Vikings. He was the league’s offensive player of...
