  1. Eddie Lacy: A new flavor for Packers

    Kevin Seifert

    The smell test failed every time. It was always difficult to imagine the Green Bay Packers selecting Alabama running back Eddie Lacy, or any other player at his position, in the first round of the 2013 draft. The running game simply doesn't carry tha...

    Kevin Seifert

    We're Black and Blue All Over: Happy (first) Draft Day! We're getting a bit of a late start Thursday because this day isn't really going to end for about 60 hours or so, when the final pick of the 2012 draft is made late Saturday afternoon. It'll ...

  9. Mailbag: Jerry Angelo's results and errors

    Kevin Seifert

    Kevin Seifert

    Eight years ago, the Minnesota Vikings thought they had a draft-day deal with the Baltimore Ravens to move from the No. 7 to the No. 10 overall pick in the draft. They reported the trade to the NFL and assumed the Ravens had done the same. Then th...
