We’re going to learn something about the Packers’ offense. And our guest should know a little bit about that, because he literally wrote the book on it. Settle in for the most in-depth look at the Packers’ offense that you’re going to find anywhere.Today I’m happy to welcome Bobby Peters to the program. Bobby is an absolute madman, and I mean that in the best possible way. Why do I say that? Well, Mr. Peters has written a book called The 2020 Green Bay Packers Complete Offensive Manual, and in that book he exhaustively details literally everything the Packers did on offense. I mean literally.It’s a massive accomplishment, and we’re happy to have Bobby with us today. Buy the Green Bay Packers Complete Offensive Manual: https://www.amazon.com/Green-Packers-Complete-Offensive-Manual/dp/B08YDB697B/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=complete+offensive+manual+packers&qid=1631095249&sr=8-1Follow Bobby Peters on Twitter: https://twitter.com/b_peters12SUPPORT BLUE 58Donate to our Patreon - For as little as $1 per month, you can access Patreon-only content and get access to our private Discord server.https://www.patreon.com/thepowersweepBuy a T-Shirt or Sweatshirt - Look good while supporting The Power Sweep.https://teespring.com/stores/the-power-sweep-3Leave us a 5-Star Review on iTunes - It helps more people find the show!

Today on Blue 58, we’re lucky to be joined by Mark Beech.Mark Beech is the managing editor of The Player’s Tribune and has previously worked for Sports Illustrated and other sports-focused publications.He released his book “The People’s Team” in 2019, and it’s as close to a comprehensive look at Packers history as we’ve got. He dives deep on the team’s origins, its growth and how players should be appreciated within their historical context.We had the chance to talk to Mark when his book first came out and figured it was time to check in now that it’s been out for a while to see what he thinks about the team’s development since then. We also wanted to be sure to ask him about how the current state of the franchise compared to some previously unsettled times in the team’s history, as well as where some of the bigger names on the team right now rank compared to their historical counterparts.Buy The People’s Team and Mark’s other works: https://www.amazon.com/Mark-Beech/e/B009F12O0Y?ref_=dbs_p_pbk_r00_abau_000000Follow Mark Beech: https://twitter.com/MarkBeech2pt0Follow The Player’s Tribune: https://twitter.com/playerstribune/SUPPORT BLUE 58Donate to our Patreon - For as little as $1 per month, you can access Patreon-only content and get access to our private Discord server.https://www.patreon.com/thepowersweepBuy a T-Shirt or Sweatshirt - Look good while supporting The Power Sweep.https://teespring.com/stores/the-power-sweep-3Leave us a 5-Star Review on iTunes - It helps more people find the show!
