Barnett Could Be Out For The Season

Nick Barnett

When Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said linebacker Nick Barnett could miss an extended period with a wrist injury, we didn’t anticipate “extended period” meant “the rest of the year.” However, that appears to be a real possibility. Multiple sources have confirmed Barnett’s initial diagnosis — that he will need surgery to repair his […]

Barnett Could Miss Extended Time; Chillar Injury Not Season-Ending

The Green Bay Packers got some good news and some bad news on Wednesday. First, the bad news. Linebacker Nick Barnett, who injured his wrist against the Detroit Lions and finished the game anyway, could be out an extended period, according to coach Mike McCarthy. Barnett is getting a second opinion on Friday. “Yeah, there […]

Nick Barnett On LA Ink

Green Bay Packers linebacker Nick Barnett was on LA Ink. I don’t know when this happened because I don’t watch the show, but the studio is right down the street from my house, although I’ve only been in it once. I’m not sure if I think it’s cool Barnett got a tattoo in my neighborhood […]

Comfort Level Will Allow The Packers Defense To Expand

We knew this would happen in the second year under defensive coordinator Dom Capers, who runs one of the most complex defenses in the NFL, but Green Bay Packers linebacker Nick Barnett spoke to how the defense will expand in 2010. In fact, Barnett compared the nature of the defense to a relationship. In the […]

Nick Barnett: Super Bowl Or Die

Just about everyone is jumping on the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl bandwagon and the players are no exception. Linebacker Nick Barnett appeared on NFL Network last week and drank some of the Kool Aid. Barnett was asked, “Super Bowl or bust?” His reply: “Super Bowl or die.” Now, I’d post the video here, but […]

Barnett Wants Another Shot At Favre

Green Bay Packers’ linebacker Nick Barnett put the memo out via Twitter — he wants another shot at Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Brett Favre. Somebody tell Brett to have that surgery so I can make up for last year!!! As we reported on Thursday, Favre will need ankle surgery if he plans to play in 2010. […]

Nick Barnett Is Frustrated, And So Are We

Evan Siegle, Green Bay Press-Gazette

You might have heard that Green Bay Packers’ linebacker Nick Barnett quit Twitter this week, after what some might consider an online meltdown. Barnett first stated his displeasure with the rotation at linebacker – one that on the inside includes himself, A.J. Hawk, Brandon Chillar and presumably, Desmond Bishop. This was the actual tweet, misspellings […]

The Packers Defensive Resurgence Begins On The Line And A Few Other Notes

No, it wasn’t lost on us. We pointed out how well the Green Bay Packers defense played in week one both during the game and in the aftermath. That, however, has been somewhat lost in the blather surrounding the terrible performance of the Packers offensive line. It should be noted, though, both Cullen Jenkins and […]

Packers’ Preseason Finale and What It Meant

The Green Bay Packers went into Nashville last night and largely stunk up the joint, getting drubbed by the Tennessee Titans, 27-13. The No. 1 offense played only one series, and the No. 1 defense did about the same, although linebackers Nick Barnett, Clay Matthews and Jeremy Thompson – all of whom saw their first […]

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 […]

The Packers’ Linebacker Brouhaha

Much is being made of the Green Bay Packers linebacker situation this offseason. The transition to the 3-4 defense of Dom Capers has forced several Packers’ players to make position changes, and it has left the two outside linebacker spots up for grabs in training camp. Although I would hardly suggest the Packers are set […]

Free Agency 2009: Week 2 Update

Let’s hope our new safety has learned his lesson. It’s true. After the wild and wacky first weekend of free agency and all the money that was thrown around, I needed a break. Besides that, after the first weekend, there wasn’t a lot of movement. As we chronicled, the Packers lost out on Chris Canty […]

Packers ‘Bearly’ Sneak by Chicago 37-3

Donald Lee is number 1.

Coming off two heartbreakingly close losses in a row, the Green Bay Packers desperately needed a win on Sunday to keep their division championship hopes alive. The Chicago Bears gave the Packers everything they had for the first two minutes or so, but in the end, Green Bay emerged from the hard fought game as […]
