Harris, Kampman Done For the Year

Harris inury

As we mentioned yesterday, the Green Bay Packers win over the San Francisco 49ers likely came at a cost. The cost is, unfortunately, higher than anyone had planned for, as both outside linebacker Aaron Kampman and cornerback Al Harris will be lost for the season with torn ACLs. While the Packers will be down two […]

Offense Dominant, But Win Is Costly For Packers

Aaron Rodgers was the man.

It only took 10 games, but the Green Bay Packers’ offense on Sunday finally looked like it did in the preseason – dominant. Aaron Rodgers threw for 344 yards and two scores while Ryan Grant added 129 yards rushing and a touchdown of his own as the Packers beat the San Francisco 49ers 30-24, improving […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Cowboys

Jason Witten

Monty: The Green Bay Packers are in turmoil after losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys come to town on a four-game winning streak. Injuries have taken a toll on the Packers, but they should go into the game with at least one offensive weapon back, in Jordy Nelson. Nelson will make […]

Packers Season Goes Into Toilet With Loss to Bucs

It’s hard to imagine anyone saw this coming, except for Steffen, who predicted the exact result this morning. The Green Bay Packers have done what was almost unthinkable in losing to the previously-winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 38-28. The story is the same that it’s been the entire season for the Packers – poor offensive line […]

Two Reasons the Packers Could Go On A Roll

Cullen Jenkins

There certainly is a lot of negative commentary surrounding the Green Bay Packers, right now. We’ve provided quite a bit of it ourselves, and rightfully so, the Packers stunk up the joint on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. You’ve got Cullen Jenkins openly questioning Dom Capers’ handling of the defense. There’s the statistical disparity between […]

Five Reasons the Packers Will Beat the Vikings

Nick Barnett is among them

The Green Bay Packers are three-point favorites going into their contest with the Minnesota Vikings this weekend. Since the Packers are playing in Lambeau Field, that line simply means that the oddsmakers feel these two teams are evenly matched. Still, this season’s history says the Vikings are the better team. The Vikings are 6-1 to […]

Everything Goes According to Script for Packers

This is exactly how it was supposed to play out for the Green Bay Packers. The Packers would dominate the Cleveland Browns and the Minnesota Vikings would lose on the road to the Pittsburgh Steelers, setting up a battle for first place in the NFC North next week in Lambeau Field. Technically, the Packers (4-2) […]

Bengals 31, Packers 24 – Observations and Opinions

Chad Ochocinco Lambeau Leap

To quote The Jeffrey Lebwoski, the plan has crashed into the mountain. More painfully one sided than the close score suggests, yesterday’s Green Bay Packers’ 31-24 defeat to the lowly Cincinnati Bengals exposed more weaknesses and vulnerabilities for the Packers. The Packers’ offensive line play was even shakier than last week and aside from a […]

Green Bay Packers: 5 Reasons for Excitement

Hi. Im here to save Mike McCarthys job.

With training camp beginning at the end of the month, I am starting to get excited for the upcoming Green Bay Packers season. Since we’re in the down time between the Packers mini-camp and training camp, I figured now is as good a time as any to get you excited too. There are some very […]

Al Harris: Fuck You Guys!

Don

Don’t ever question me, motherfucker! The Green Bay Packers have been lucky enough to have one of the top cornerbacks in the game for the past six seasons in Al Harris. In his early Packers career, I used to refer to him as “Solid,” i.e. Al “Solid” Harris, because that’s what he was – not […]

The Packers Cornerback Battle

While the Green Bay Packers certainly have some positions up for grabs this offseason – the entire offensive line, two defensive line spots, two outside linebacker spots, and fullback are in play, as well as who starts at safety alongside Nick Collins – there is one position that is more intriguing to me than any […]

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 […]

Free Agency 2009: Our Guys

Mark Tauscher

The 2009 free agency signing period begins on February 27 and the Green Bay Packers are in very good shape, at approximately $25 million below the projected $123 million salary cap. Before we reveal our list of free agency demands for 2009, let’s take a look at the Packers own free agents. The most substantial […]

Al Harris, Justin Harrell Not Suited For 3-4

Al Harris

Following yesterday’s news that Green Bay Packers’ defensive end Aaron Kampman will move to outside linebacker in defensive coordinator Dom Capers’ 3-4 scheme, there was news today questioning whether cornerback Al Harris is fit for the scheme, and suggesting defensive tackle Justin “the Big Bust” Harrell will move to defensive end. We’ll start with Harris, […]

Al Harris is the Best CB in the League

Al Harris will eat your lunch, fuck your wife and burn your house down!

What? Yeah, that’s what I said. I love Al Harris, but he’s certainly no Chuckles Woodson, and when he came back from his spleen injury this past season, I secretly thought Tramon Williams was playing better than Al, before he got hurt. Anyway, to the point… Through some complex mathematical formula akin to quarterback ratings […]

Dom Capers and the 3-4 – A Good Fit?

Dom Capers

After an unprecedented purge of defensive coaching staff, after much hemming and hawing and after much speculation, the Green Bay Packers have settled on former Houston Texans coach Dom Capers as their new defensive coordinator. I’m not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, I like the hire. Dom Capers brings the type […]

The Packers Are Dead, Long Live The Packers

Aaron Rodgers

With yet another heartbreaking 4 points-or-less loss, the Green Bay Packers have all but assured that the playoffs will be out of their reach, with their 35-31 defeat at the hands of the Carolina Panthers. The Packers don’t deserve it this year, not this coaching staff, not this underachieving group of players. But it’s hard […]

On To More Important Things, Like the Tennessee Titans

Chris Johnson

Enough with the Brett Favre bullshit. I am exhausted and I’m letting it go. Let’s talk about more important things, like next week’s Green Bay Packers’ opponent, the Tennessee Titans, who face the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football. The Titans are 6-0 going into a home game against a pretty average (and one the […]

Atari Bigby Returns, Ty Law Wants In

Ty Law

Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby finally returned to the practice field Thursday, after being sidelined with a balky hamstring since the week two game against the Detroit Lions. Bigby didn’t do a hell of a lot on his first day back – going through “limited practice” – but has a chance to play this […]

The Good News And The Better News For The Packers

Al Harris Tony Romo

It’s true that I’m not overly optimistic about anything, so, let’s start with the better news. Green Bay Packers cornerback Al Harris, who suffered a lacerated spleen in the Packers week three loss to the Dallas Cowboys, is on his way back. First reported by the National Football Post on Monday, Harris was cleared for […]
