FA Targets: Victor Butler & Antwan Barnes

5

The Packers are in desperate need of depth at OLB and it is not unreasonable to think they may dip into the FA waters to fill that need. If they do, Victor Butler and Antwan Barnes are two solid and affordable options available.

Coaches Breakdown: The Capers Rollercoaster

44

As another promising season ends due to a high profile failure on defense it’s natural to question whether the Packers have the right defensive coordinator. The improvements made on defense this year despite major injuries make this a difficult ques

FA Targets: Ricky Jean-Francois

Ted Thompson is not typically a big player in free agency, but he has signed these players when need and value meet. One player who may fit that need and come at a good value is defensive tackle Ricky Jean-Francois.

Coaches Breakdown: Clements' Slow Start

16

It was Tom Clements first year as offensive coordinator. The offense was still strong, but struggled throughout the year and failed to rank as a top 10 team for yards per game for the first time in McCarthy’s tenure in Green Bay. Not a great start.

Coaching Breakdown: Slocum Still A Target

16

Shawn Slocum has been a guy many have wanted to see fired. The 2012 season probably did not change anyone’s mind one way or another with its mixed bag of high profile successes and failures.

Powering Up For The Offseason

45

After completing an evaluation of the Packers’ roster for 2013 it seems there are more questions than answers. Despite these questions the Packers are in a good place entering this offseason and appear to be one of the Power Teams in the league.

Specialists Breakdown: Ginger Wolverine Attack!

APC’s initial evaluation of the Packers’ roster concludes with a look at the three specialists, kicker, punter, and long snapper. Normally this post is a quick "yup they’re good" and then call it a day. This article can’t do that this year……sigh.

S Breakdown: Hope For The Future

The safety unit has undergone significant changes from last year resulting in some impressive young talent at the position. The problem is that much of this talent is still a bit raw and may need more time to develop.

ILB Breakdown: Upgrades Needed...But When?

The inside linebacker position for the Packers seems to have the opposite problems facing the outside linebacker spot. Here there are plenty of bodies, but signature great player to anchor the group.

OL Breakdown: The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

How you see the Packers offensive line may be one of the truest test of whether you are an optimist or a pessimist. The problem is that even the biggest optimist would need to admit upgrades are needed.

Rodgers & Favre: "Facing" The Issue Head On

24

Aaron Rodgers is quickly becoming building a lasting legacy in Green Bay on the field, but this weekend he may have found another way to build his legend in Titletown by helping the reconciliation process with Brett Favre.

WR Breakdown: Facing The Upcoming Brain Drain

APC's initial roster evaluations continue with a look at the changing face of the wide receiving corp. Can the Packers overcome the loss of Greg Jennings and Donald Driver? Will Jordy Nelson, James Jones, and Randall Cobb be enough for 2013?

RB Breakdown: Questions Abound

73

The running back position may be the most uncertain this coming offseason. The biggest question of all though may be whether the Packers have found a legitimate starting running back in DuJuan Harris.

Dave Robinson Elected to Pro Football Hall of Fame

16

Congratulations to former Packer linebacker Dave Robinson on being elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Robinson will be the 22nd enshrined in the Hall and the 11th individual from the Lombardi era.

Super Bowl Recipes Galore

15

The Super Bowl party is as much about the event as the game itself for most people. Some of the APC staff share their favorite recipes to serve during your party this year.

When Backups Become Stars

11

The Packers suffered many critical injuries in 2012, but they also got tremendous play from backup players down the stretch. Brad Jones and Casey Hayward both come in as two of the top 3 substitute players of 2012 according to PFF.

It's So Hard To Say Good Bye

12

We all knew it was coming, but it’s time to start saying good bye to Donald Driver. We start celebrating his career by noting the top five moments of his historic career.

Securing A Bright Future: WR/TE As Biggest Need

66

Devin tags back in for part 4 of our continuing series on the biggest need for the Packers this offseason. With the probable loss of Greg Jennings looming and retirement of Donald Driver, the Packers clearly need to add depth to the WR position.

Suffering A Set Back

Not every player improves from one year to the next. All too often some players take a step back or have a down year….but which Packer took the biggest step back in 2012?

When Draft & Develop Works: Most Improved Player

76

The Packers' are a draft and develop team, meaning that a large number of players need to improve each year in order for the team to continue to be successful. As such, there are plenty of nominees for this year's most improved player award.

Reinforcing The Line

36

The Packers have a few areas that need upgrading this year. In the first part of a continuing series this week, Devin argues that the biggest need facing the Packers is an upgrade to the defensive line.

Unsung Heroes

22

The battles in the trenches were largely forgettable for the Packers in 2012, but a couple players were able to perform at a high level. Ryan Pickett, Josh Sitton, and Brad Jones highlight this year's nominees for Working Class Hero of the Year.

Shining Through The Darkness

49

It’s time for one last MVP of the Week. Despite some outright performances on the part of the Packers, some players were able to put together some impressive – yet flawed – nights. Will any of them be worthy of MVP of the Week?

A Loss Of Identity

221

The postseason defines what a team is and how they will be remembered. On Saturday night the Packers defined who they were in 2012 by forgetting their identity and trying to be who they wanted to be instead of playing to their strengths.

K.I.S.S. The Past Goodbye

1

The San Francisco 49ers are not a complex team, but that does not make them easy to defeat. It’s going to take smart and tough football focusing on the little things in order to erase a week 1 defeat and advance to the next round of the playoffs.

Holding The Line

17

The Packers continue to define their 2012 season with a rematch against the San Francisco 49ers. Can the Packers do a better job of playing in the trenches this time around? Or will Marshall Newhouse and company struggle to control the game again?

Five Questions with NN

5

Devin got the chance to ask questions of David Fucillo of Niners Nation, the 49ers' SB Nation blog. Come see his take on some important injuries to the Niners and his ideas on how to attack the 49ers' defense.

Moving Down The Line

14

The Packers defense has changed a great deal since week 1, but one of the more underrated moves maybe B.J. Raji’s move to DE. Could his improved play be the difference for the Packers against the 49ers?

Helping Prepare?

28

After Saturday's game against the Minnesota Vikings coach McCarthy said playing Joe Webb helped the defense prepare for the 49ers. Considering the vast differences between the two offenses it may not have helped as much as you think.

Freshness not guaranteed

39

The Packers & 49ers have used two different models on defense. The Packers have favoring to keep snap counts lower throughout the season and the Niners keeping one core group of players together for large majority of defensive snaps. Is one better?
