Al Harris On His Way To Green Bay

OK, perhaps Al Harris isn’t currently on his way to Green Bay. It’s more of a metaphorical statement. Harris, the Green Bay Packers’ starting cornerback before tearing up his knee last December, says he’s a week or two from joining his teammates in Green Bay in the National Football Post’s latest video on his recovery. […]

Restricted Free Agents Don’t Show, Green Cleans Out His Locker

As expected, the Green Bay Packers three remaining unsigned restricted free agents didn’t show for the start of organized team activities, Tuesday. Those players are defensive end Johnny Jolly, cornerback Tramon Williams and safety Atari Bigby. As I mentioned, the players’ absences were expected, since 1. none of them have signed their restricted free agent […]

Al Harris Getting Into Football Shape

In this latest video from the National Football Post featuring Green Bay Packers’ cornerback Al Harris’ comeback from knee surgery we learn something Packers’ fans are going to love. Al Harris has come back far enough that he’s now focusing on getting into football shape. He’s perfecting the cuts and speed that’s made him a […]

Al Harris’ Recovery Time “Tremendous”

We’ve been detailing the recovery of Green Bay Packers’ cornerback Al Harris from major knee surgery with help from the National Football Post’s video series. We missed the last installment, which was posted a couple of weeks ago, because we were too busy blathering on about the draft. But that’s over now, so I thought […]

Al Harris Still Pushing Through, But Packers Aren’t Certain What To Expect

We’ve talked about cornerback Al Harris’ rehab on several occasions, mostly through the help of the video series produced by the National Football Post. While Harris continues to push through what must be a draining process, which you’ll see in the video below, the Green Bay Packers don’t seem to have full confidence Harris will […]

Al Harris Looking Good

We’ve been posting all of the Al Harris Road to Recovery videos produced by the National Football Post, but part six really didn’t have anything notable about it, so we disregarded it. Part seven, which was released at the end of last week, is a little bit more enlightening. In it, the Green Bay Packers […]

What Is Packers’ Biggest Need?

The Green Bay Packers have several glaring holes this offseason – offensive line, cornerback and safety among them – but I’ve been wavering as to which is the most troublesome. Offensive tackle is the obvious answer, but the cornerback position is an increasing concern on par with, if not greater than, the tackle position. The […]

Packers’ Improve From Within Rhetoric Getting Old

Ted Thompson

It’s been pretty well documented how badly the Green Bay Packers fared against top-flight quarterbacks last season. I’ll give it to you in four words: they fucking sucked ass. This offseason the team has done little to address the deficiencies in that area. As usual, there was no outside free agent signings to speak of, […]

Al Harris: Fear the Dreads

That’s what Green Bay Packers cornerback Al Harris has to say to opposing receivers, as he enters week five of his rehabilitation, shown in this video produced by the National Football Post. At least the dude is in a good mood. He can also keep his surgically repaired left leg almost completely straight, which is […]

Al Harris: I Can’t Bend My Fucking Knee!

OK, maybe he didn’t exactly say that, but Green Bay Packers cornerback Al Harris really can’t bend his surgically reconstructed knee, at least not fully. In part four of the video series on Harris’ rehabilitation, produced by the National Football Post, Al shows you just what a surgically repaired knee can do – or not […]

Al Harris Can’t Leave the Money On the Table

Green Bay Packers cornerback Al Harris continues to rehabilitate his surgically repaired knee and in this week’s video installment, produced by the National Football Post, we learn two things. First, Harris, who’s 35, says he’s attempting to come back because he wants to fulfill the final two years of his contract, or, as he states, […]

Top-Flight Cornerbacks Available, Packers Unlikely To Act

Dunta Robinson

Make no mistake about it, the Green Bay Packers are in the cornerback market. Al Harris is rehabilitating a major knee injury and behind Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams, who ended the season as the starters, the Packers are thin. There has been speculation the Packers might be interested in acquiring San Diego’s Antonio Cromartie, […]

Al Harris Still Shooting For Six Months

Green Bay Packers cornerback Al Harris is continuing to rehabilitate his left knee after reconstructive surgery. You can take a look at his work in the video below, which is part two of a continuing series (part one) being produced by the National Football Post. Harris reiterates something he said after he got injured in […]

Chargers’ Cromartie To Packers: Only If Price Is Right

Antonio Cromartie

The San Diego Chargers need a running back. LaDanian Tomlinson, who will turn 31 in June, is likely to be released by the team after gaining only 730 yards and averaging 3.3 yards per carry in 2009. His backup, Darren Sproles, will be a restricted free agent. The Chargers could re-sign Sproles, but after paying […]

Al Harris’ Road to Recovery

When the Green Bay Packers’ Al Harris tore up his knee in November, we knew it would be a long road to recovery. Still, Harris has promised that he’ll be ready to play once the season begins. Now, thanks to the National Football Post, you can see just how long and painful Harris’ road back […]

Packers Have Some Work To Do In the Middle

Early Doucet

The Green Bay Packers defense was exposed by the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The NFL’s second-ranked unit fell apart against the vaunted Cardinals passing attack, much the same way they did three weeks earlier against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s now pretty clear why these things have happened. The middle of the Packers defense if vulnerable […]

Matt Hasselbeck Wants the Ball and is Going to Score

With the Seattle Seahawks coming to town the play the Green Bay Packers, it’s hard not to think back to the 2004 NFC Wild Card game at Lambeau Field. When the game went into overtime and Seattle won the toss, Seahawks’ quarterback Matt Hasselbeck proclaimed, “We want the ball and we’re going to score.” It […]

Five Reasons Not To Be Excited About The Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers have won three straight games after an embarrassing loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers almost derailed their season. The Packers sit at 7-4, in prime position for a wild card berth. There are a lot of things to like about the team, right now. But we’re pessimists and therefore, we can’t […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Lions

Monty: The Detroit Lions once again demonstrated how bad their defense is in their victory over the Cleveland Browns last week. The Lions allowed Brady Quinn to throw for 304 yards and four touchdowns in that game. Quinn previously had thrown three touchdowns – in his career. In other words, the Green Bay Packers will […]

Capers Defensive Strategy is Curious

This guy shouldnt be covering anyones No. 1 receiver.

Or maybe it’s Dom Capers lack of defensive strategy that’s curious. Either way, the Green Bay Packers defense is a strange beast. One second, they’re dominant. The next… eh, not so much. We are talking about the third-ranked unit in the NFL, but Sunday’s win over the San Francisco 49ers showed just how Jeykl and […]
