The 3 Most Exciting Matchups From the 2021 Packers Schedule

On Wednesday night, the NFL released the 2021 Green Bay Packers schedule, and we couldn’t be more excited for the upcoming season!

After looking through the schedule and giving it some careful consideration, these are the 3 matchups that I’m most looking forward to:

11/7 at Kansas City – This is perhaps one of the biggest matchups of the entire season, with two of the NFL’s top quarterbacks going head to head for the first time.. assuming Rodgers stays in Green Bay of course. If so, this should be a great game for sure, it’s a wonder why it’s not being played in primetime.

11/14 vs Seattle – We never get tired of watching Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson battle it out, this rivalry producing some classics over the years. Both teams are pretty evenly matched, and it should make for some good football for sure.

12/19 at Baltimore – It’s the meeting of the 2020 NFL MVP versus the 2019 NFL MVP, not to mention a dominant rushing offense against an unstoppable passing offense. Both teams have great rosters, so it’s not just Rodgers vs Jackson, there’s going to be a lot of action on the field for sure.

The Green Bay Packers 2021 Schedule Has Been Released

The Packers 2020 season ended with a thud, falling at home in the NFC Championship game to the eventual Super Bowl champions the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Bucs, led by Tom Brady, put the heat all day on Aaron Rodgers, and made the big plays in the contest when they needed to.

That’s not even the biggest story in 2021 for the Pack, as the team has had to deal with the distractions all offseason of the future of Rodgers, who says he wants out of cheese country to play elsewhere in 2021 and beyond.

The Pack in 2021 will have some great games to look forward to, and today we take a look at their slate.

Here’s hoping that the Packers go all the way this season!

Packers Reportedly Still One of Three Teams in the Mix for DE J.J. Watt

The Packers remain in the mix for free agent defensive end J.J. Watt, but according to reports the former Houston Texan is not going to come cheap.

Thursday a report surfaced that Watt has an offer on the table from a team believed to be worth between $15 million and $16 million.

John Clayton of ESPN in Seattle reports that the Packers, along with the Titans, and Buffalo Bills are the three teams that have given the most attention to Watt and they are the frontrunners for his services.

Watt’s interest in the Packers is not a surprise, considering he played for the University of Wisconsin and he’s a Pewaukee, Wis. native — along with growing up a Packers fan.

The Packers have reached the last two NFC Championship Games and could use some help on a defensive line that has recorded 82 sacks over the past two seasons (tied for eighth-most in the NFL). Adding a player of Watt’s caliber could be enough to get Green Bay to the Super Bowl in a loaded NFC.

There’s no doubt that adding Watt would be a huge boost, and not only would he add getting to the quarterback, but also his locker room presence would help out the team’s defense a great deal.

It remains to be seen what it’s at the end of the day going to take, but hearing that a team has already offered between $15 and $16 million shows how much faith teams have that Watt is a game changer still to this day.

Is Aaron Rodgers Looking for Revenge Against the Packers Should He Leave?

Following last Sunday’s NFC Title game loss at home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, there’s been tons of questions about the future for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers himself said that his future in Green Bay is uncertain, and Monday one of his old teammates had some interesting comments about what could potentially happen if Rodgers moves on to play elsewhere.

That player is former Packer offensive lineman T.J. Lang, who said that Rogers wasn’t happy when the team drafted Jordan Love last offseason, and that he felt the team was just one piece away from truly winning the whole thing.

“I think he was quietly pissed when they took Jordan Love a year ago,” Lang said on WXYT’s “The Ticket” on Monday.

“The one thing I’ll say about Aaron Rodgers, pretty much the last 10 years of his career he’s wanted that team to just go all-in for one year. ‘Just give me some pieces, let’s just go all-in, let’s trade a future first if we have to get a couple guys. Let’s just go all-in and try to win this thing.’

“And then last year, he hinted at them doing that, ‘Hey, I’m excited, let’s see who they can bring in,’ and they bring in a quarterback. I think that was the ultimate slap to the face when you feel like you’re one piece away from winning the whole thing.”

“I think he’s gonna make them pay, man, I think he’s gonna want some sort of new deal where they guarantee a couple more years for him, security wise, being in Green Bay. I don’t think he wants to go anywhere, but I think he’s going to hold their feet to the fire and say, ‘Hey, if you’re going to keep me around, A) you’re going to pay me, and B) you’re going to bring in some players that I want to play with where we can take this next leap.”

The last two seasons the Packers have won 13 games each, but both seasons were unable to get to the Super Bowl.

Could it be time for a change for Rodgers and the Packers? Only time will tell for the 37-year-old quarterback, but if so it will be interesting if he lines up looking for revenge like another former Packers quarterback did some time ago who wore #4.

Packers To Allow 6,000 Fans into Lambeau Field For Divisional Playoff Game

The Packers will have somewhat of a home field advantage next week in their first playoff game at Lambeau Field, as the team has announced 6,000 fans will be allowed in for the divisional playoff game.

“Our players have enjoyed the energy provided by the limited fans we’ve had over the past four games. We’re looking forward to welcoming our Season Ticket Holders to add to that atmosphere in the playoffs,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy.

“We’ve seen our COVID-19 protocols in action and are confident we can safely add additional fans.”

Tickets will go on sale Tuesday through Ticketmaster to season ticket holders who over the summer opted in for on-sale information via email.

No tickets will be for sale through the Packers’ ticket office.

Tickets for the NFC Divisional Playoff will range for tickets start at $127 up to $177, based on location; a service fee from Ticketmaster also will be charged as well.

If the Packers win their divisional playoff game, they will play host to the NFC Title game at Lambeau Field the following Sunday, January 24th at 3:05pm EST. The game will be televised on Fox.

Legendary Packers Running Back Paul Hornung Dead at 84

Former Packer great Paul Hornung has passed away at the age of 84.

Hornung died in his hometown of Louisville, Ky., after a long battle with dementia, the Louisville Sports Commission said in a statement.

The legendary running back took home the 1956 Heisman Trophy award with Notre Dame as a quarterback, and went pro in 1957 and played for the Packers as a fullback and halfback after being selected No. 1 overall by the Packers.

He spent nine seasons with the Packers and was suspended for the entirety of the 1963 season because of a gambling suspension.

He was a part of the 1966 Packers team that won the first-ever Super Bowl, defeating the American Football League’s Kansas City Chiefs 35-10.

A Good Loss? Aaron Rodgers Says That Might be the Case for the Packers

Aaron Rodgers threw a pair of interceptions, including a rare pick-six, and the Packers (4-1) lost for the first time this season, 38-10 to Tom Brady and the Buccaneers (4-2).

But Rodgers believes it might be good for his team, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

“You don’t ever want to lose like this,” Rodgers said. “I felt like we needed a little bit of a wake-up call at some point this season because things have been so good and there’s been so much talk maybe outside the building about the ease with which we’re moving the ball on offense and scoring. I think we needed kind of a kick in the ass a little bit.

“There’s a little bit of wake-up to stop feeling ourselves so much and get back to the things that got us to this position. I think this would be, unfortunately but fortunately, something we can really grow from.”

Packers WR Davante Adams Says He Won’t Play, Then Deletes Tweet

Will he or won’t he?

That’s the big question for tonight for the Packers and wide out Davante Adams, who tweeted out Monday that he would not play in tonight’s game against the Falcons.

Then, just like that – the tweet was gone.

“Sorry fans and friends I wont be on the field tonight. I’ve done everything I need to do and proved Im ready but I guess I don’t know my body as well as others. Good luck out there my boys,” Adams said in a tweet that was deleted.

This past week Adams said he didn’t want to get back on the field until he was 100 percent, which clearly he’s not at this point.

“I will be making sure I feel normal — like before it happened — before I step out there,” Adams said Thursday.

“So we’re doing our thing to make sure that that’s the case.”

If Adams does not play which seems likely, it’ll be the second straight game he’s missed.

He didn’t play due to a hamstring injury in the Packers week two win over the Lions.

Adams had been officially listed as questionable after being limited in practice this past week. He indicated in his tweet that he wants to play Monday but is being held out.

Davante Adams’ Status for Sunday Against the Saints Up in the Air

Packers wide receiver Davante Adams did not practice on Wednesday according to Stacey Dales of NFL Network.

This is probably more precautionary than anything, but Adams is still viewed as uncertain for Week 3 against the Saints after pulling his hamstring in the Week 2 win over Detroit.

It did not appear to be a serious strain at the time, but we’ll still need to keep an eye on Adams ahead of his matchup with CB Marshon Lattimore. If Adams were to miss, Allen Lazard, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and the tight ends would be Aaron Rodgers’ top downfield targets.
