Clusterfuck Update 7/28: Free Agent Deals, Eagles Get Stronger

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Ah, free agency, what an exhausting wench you are. Today, we’ve got three major trades completed, including the one that makes the Eagles the second-best team in the NFC and the Redskins making their usual stupid moves by overpaying some guy who won’t amount to shit.

Colledge Gone; Jenkins, Jones Likely To Follow

James Jones

The Green Bay Packers lost left guard Daryn Colledge today and defensive end Cullen Jenkins and receiver James Jones will likely be off the market before the day is over.

With Colledge Likely Moving On, Bulaga Could Move To Left Guard

Daryn Colledge

The Arizona Cardinals look like they’re going to lure left guard Daryn Colledge away from the Green Bay Packers. That leaves the Packers with an interesting quandry — move Bryan Bulaga to left tackle or leave him at right guard?

Clusterfuck Update 7/27: Free Agent Deals And Kolb To Cardinals

Kevin Kolb

Although teams can’t begin signing free agents until Friday, this is the second day they could negotiate with them. Several clubs took advantage and reached agreements with players. The Green Bay Packers jumped into the fray by reaching an agreement with Mason Crosby. Here are today’s developments that could impact the Packers’ quest to repeat […]

Here’s Darnell Dockett Dissing B.J. Raji

B.J. Raji

Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett is apparently not a fan of Green Bay Packers nose tackle B.J. Raji. He’s also not a fan of the NFL Network’s top 100 players list. Frankly, I don’t blame him for that. The list doesn’t make a lot of sense, but it’s voted on by players, so you […]

Jennings Uses Fitzgerald For Motivation

Greg Jennings

Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings is one of the best in the game, but he’s getting his motivation from someone who’s a little better — Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald is a five-time Pro Bowler and one of the hardest workers in the NFL. Jennings, who has four fewer Pro Bowl selections, began working out with Fitzgerald in Arizona this week, under former NFL receivers coach Jerry Sullivan.

Where Are They Now? Packers’ Draft Busts: 1990-1999

Jonathan Brown

The Green Bay Packers have had their share of draft busts over the years. Some have been epic (Tony Mandarich), while others have snuck out of town almost unnoticed (Terrence Murphy). Well, thankfully we’re here to dredge up your past failures, point our gnarled, crooked, judgmental fingers at you and cackle. For you’ve shamed the […]

Carson Palmer Another Option For Vikings

Carson Palmer

Although several analysts have suggested Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb could be the guy who eventually winds up behind center for the Minnesota Vikings, the team has a lot of options. Peter King suggests the Cincinnati Bengals Carson Palmer is one of them. Palmer has said he won’t play for the Bengals again and who could blame him?

Packers Seem Likely To Lose One Defensive Coach At Most

The names of several Green Bay Packers defensive coaches have been flying around as candidates for the various defensive coordinator openings around the league, but it’s now looking less likely the Packers staff will be purged. On Wednesday, the Philadelphia Eagles, one of the four teams with an opening, hired Juan Castillo, their own offensive […]

Trgovac Staying In Green Bay

Mike Trgovac

Green Bay Packers defensive line coach Mike Trgovac says he’s staying in Green Bay. Trgovac’s name has been mentioned in connection with the open defensive coordinator positions, which are Philadelphia, Arizona and Oakland. Tennessee will also have to hire a defensive coordinator after the team canned head coach Jeff Fisher, last week. Trgovac apparently isn’t […]

Packers Offense Could Join A Select Few

The Green Bay Packers offense looks like a juggernaut going into the 2010 season. The possibilities of this season got me thinking about some of the greatest individual seasons by teammates in NFL history. The Packers had two 1,000-yard receivers, a 1,000-yard rusher and a 4,000-yard passer in 2009. Those numbers came courtesy of Greg […]

Brady Poppinga Part Of Packers Pass Rush Solution

This news both brings me great joy and increases my staunch support of Green Bay Packers’ general manager Ted Thompson, who is completely brilliant. You see, the Packers didn’t bother to add a player of note at the left outside linebacker position because they’ve got Brady Poppinga. You know, the guy who has amassed four […]

New Umpire Rule May Have Changed Packers’ Playoff Fate

Bertand Berry Aaron Rodgers

Earlier this month the NFL announced they are moving umpires from the defensive side of the ball to the offensive backfield in 2010. The move was made to protect umpires, but it’s a move Green Bay Packers’ coach Mike McCarthy thinks could have affected the outcome of the Packers playoff game with the Arizona Cardinals, […]

Day Two Free Agency Update

Aaron Kampman

Although it will be quieter today than it was yesterday, we’ll again keep running updates throughout the day with the latest news at the top of the page. Check out the day one free agent rundown here. ———- OK, the Aaron Kampman saga continues to get weirder. The Eagles have refuted the report below that […]

Day One Free Agency Update

We’re going to update this post throughout the day simply because there already is a lot going on and there will be a lot more in the free for all known as NFL free agency. The most recent news will be at the top. ———- Safety Antrel Rolle was the last big signing of the […]

Antrel Rolle Will Be Free

The Arizona Cardinals will cut safety Antrel Rolle rather than pay him a $4 million roster bonus on March 5, a move first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. We talked about the potential of Rolle joining the Green Bay Packers, where he could replace Atari Bigby at free safety, a couple weeks ago. Now that […]

Antrel Rolle Could Be on Packers Radar

Arizona Cardinals’ free safety Antrel Rolle is a name that’s probably on the Green Bay Packers radar. Why, you ask? Rolle is under contract with the Cardinals. Well, that contract isn’t going to fly in Arizona. Rolle is due $8 million in base salary and a $4 million roster bonus on March 5. Although Rolle […]

No Love For Mike McCarthy

Mike McCarthy

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy got no love in the NFL Coach of the Year race, despite some speculation that he might. As we predicted, the Cincinnati Bengals’ Marvin Lewis ran away with the award. McCarthy finished… well, he didn’t get any votes, so he didn’t really finish anywhere. Oddly enough… or perhaps not […]

Packers’ Dom Capers Asleep At the Wheel

This footage could partially explain why the Green Bay Packers vaunted defense played so poorly against the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday (although we think there are two other clear-cut reasons). In it, you’ll see Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers, who appears to dose off and then suddenly jerk back to life like someone who’s trying […]

Packers Saved the Sports Book

Karlos Dansby game-winner

It appears the Green Bay Packers dramatically helped out two entities last weekend – the Arizona Cardinals, whom they lost a crushing 51-45 overtime contest to, and the Las Vegas sports books. Not surprisingly, bettors were going big on the Packers, who had beaten the Cardinals 33-7 to end the regular season. The Cardinals opened […]
