I bet inside linebacker Desmond Bishop wishes he would have waited until after the season to sign a new contract.

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy confirmed the obvious yesterday, saying Desmond Bishop was the team’s No. 1 inside linebacker, but the rest of the group is surrounded by uncertainty.

Bishop Making The Packers Coaching Staff Look Like Idiots

I’ve always questioned the Green Bay Packers coaching staff and their reluctance to give young players a shot when those players were behind veterans on the depth chart.

The Packers’ offensive line play was even shakier than last week and aside from a […]

Packers Training Camp Battles – Inside Linebacker

As the Green Bay Packers training camp begins to heat up, it’s becoming more apparent where the interesting positional battles are going to take place, and in some cases, they aren’t where we thought they would take place. Since the Packers have put their pads on, some players who performed well in OTAs have fallen […]
