Randall Cobb is Probably Back on Returns

Randall Cobb vs. Rams

The Green Bay Packers didn’t sign another returner to the active roster after releasing Jeremy Ross. That likely means Randall Cobb is the returner again.

Randall Cobb Will Remain Packers Returner

Randall Cobb

Even though he’s expected to take on a larger role on offense, Randall Cobb will remain the Green Bay Packers primary return man.

Sam Shields Is Packers Kick Returner… For Now

One of the more interesting developments to come out of the Green Bay Packers mauling of the Dallas Cowboys was cornerback Sam Shields taking over as the Packers kick returner. The team has been looking for a reliable kick returner all season. Receiver Jordy Nelson, who was given first crack at the job, had some […]

Packers Looking At Options On Kick Returns; Where’s Will Blackmon?

The Green Bay Packers aren’t happy with their kick returners. Jordy Nelson is averaging a team-high 23.7 yards per return, but fumbled twice in the Packers’ victory over the Detroit Lions. He was temporarily replaced by Pat Lee against the Washington Redskins, but Lee managed only 16.5 yards on two returns. This week, the Packers […]

Packers Work Out Returner, Safety

Ted Thompson may not be done tweaking the Green Bay Packers roster yet. The Packers brought in former Tampa Bay returner Clifton Smith and former Jacksonville safety Gerald Alexander for workouts, Tuesday. Smith was Pro Bowl return man for the Buccaneers in 2008 and has career averages of 28.3 yards on kickoff returns and 12.1 […]

Nelson, Williams The Packers Primary Returners

The Green Bay Packers will go into their week one game with the Philadelphia Eagles with receiver Jordy Nelson and cornerback Tramon Williams as their primary return men after cutting safety Will Blackmon, Saturday. Nelson will return kicks and Williams will return punts. Running back Brandon Jackson will also be in the mix as a […]

Chery Will Get Opportunity As Return Man

Wide receiver Jason Chery is getting an opportunity to make the Green Bay Packers as a return man. After returning a punt 75 yards for a touchdown in last week’s win over Indianapolis, Chery will return all punts and kickoffs in Thursday’s preseason finale against the Kansas City Chiefs. Will Blackmon, who was thought to […]

Return Game Outlook: Hazy

Will Blackmon

Green Bay Packers training camp is pretty boring if you’re looking for real competition. The biggest and closest competition is at punter and the only real positional battle, at least for a starting spot, looks to be between Brandon Chillar and Brad Jones for the left outside linebacker spot. Not terribly exciting stuff. So, if […]

Ted Ginn Could Power The Packers’ Return Game

Ted Ginn Jr.

The Miami Dolphins’ acquisition of receiver Brandon Marshall from the Denver Broncos has several ramifications, but the one most interesting to the Green Bay Packers is Dolphins’ receiver/return man Ted Ginn Jr. has now been labeled the odd man out in Miami. Let’s get this out of the way first. Ted Thompson is about as […]

Green Bay Packers’ New Year’s Resolutions

Hey, what can I say? Well work on it.

2009 is done and gone (thank god for that), and it’s the time of year when many people set themselves up for failure by making New Year’s resolutions. I imagine many on the Green Bay Packers’ coaching staff do the same, so we here at Total Packers have compiled some suggestions of what we think […]

Vikings vs. Packers: Who Sucked And Who Didn’t

Nick Barnett has been lost for the season.

Every week the Green Bay Packers are starting to look more and more like a team that simply won’t live up to expectations. Yesterday, the Packers lost yet another close game to an inferior opponent, this time, 28-27 to the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers should be better than this. Maybe it’s time to accept that […]

Thoughts On The Packers Return Game, The CBA And The Draft

Jordy Nelson

And they all tie together… First, the big news out of the NFL was the owners deciding to opt out of the current collective bargaining agreement. This assures an uncapped – and most assuredly insane – 2010 season. The future beyond that is uncertain. There may be a walkout or work stoppage, which no NFL […]

Koren Robinson Out; Kick Returner Needed

Koren Robinson

There’s no doubt the Green Bay Packers have a log jam at receiver after drafting Jordy Nelson in the second round and that other guy in the seventh round (you know, the white kid from San Diego) of the 2008 NFL draft. Pair that with a solid, sometimes spectacular top three returning in Donald Driver, […]
