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.

Atari Bigby May Hold Out

Green Bay Packers’ safety Atari Bigby, one of the team’s three unsigned restricted free agents, appears to be the most likely to hold out, according to Greg Bedard, via Cheesehead TV.

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, […]

Some Interesting Free Agent Possibilities For Packers

Ted Thompson

Although there are players available – like Antrel Rolle, Dunta Robinson and Darren Sproles – who would make great additions to the Green Bay Packers in free agency, we all know who we’re dealing with here.

Ryan Pickett

Some interesting tidbits have come out about the Green Bay Packers free agent priorities in the past week.

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 […]

Round One: Packers…Doesn’t Mean Much Though

The Wizard of Green Bay teleported himself down to Glendale, Ariz., for Sundays game.

It’s hard to take too much away from the Green Bay Packers’ 33-7 drumming of the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. It was a dominating performance, but Arizona rested most of its starters and coach Ken Whisenhunt played it safe, not showing much of what he will do when the two teams meet again next week […]

Is Atari Bigby the Packers’ Bob Sanders?

Remember the 2006 Indianapolis Colts? Thanks primarily to Peyton Manning’s arm, the Colts started 9-0 despite giving up more than 20 points per game. They were Super Bowl favorites until their defense collapsed down the stretch and they finished the year 3-4. Analysts attributed the team’s defensive struggles to the absence of safety Bob Sanders, […]

Five Reasons the Packers Will Beat the Vikings
