Packers Are About to Get Healthy

I’m not talking about the injuries that have plagued the Green Bay Packers thus far, although the return of safety Atari Bigby and left tackle Chad Clifton to the staring lineup can only help, I’m talking about the schedule. The Packers are about to go into what is shaping up as the easiest portion of […]

Do the Packers Miss Anthony Smith?

Anthony Smith

That’s the word, at least according to one report. The Packers cut safety Anthony Smith during their final roster cutdown, instead deciding to keep Jarret Bush and Aaron Rouse. The team also traded for Derrick Martin. Rouse has since been cut. Smith was pushing Atari Bigby for playing time during training camp and was easily […]

Packers Shape Up, But It’s Only the Rams

The Green Bay Packers got a much needed win on Sunday, and the team looked better than it did the previous week against the Cincinnati Bengals. However, it should be pointed out that the St. Louis Rams are one of the worst teams in football. Still, a win is a win, and although the game […]

Injuries Will Play Huge Roll for Packers the Next Two Weeks

Daryn Colledge

Each year in the NFL, the most successful teams do one of two things — they either don’t have injuries, or they overcome injuries. That’s not to say that those successful teams don’t also have other things in common – they have positive turnover margins, they limit penalties, etc. But without fail, they do one […]

Packers Inexplicably Cut Aaron Rouse

I guess this is fighting fire with fire. If your team is dangerously thin at safety, what do you do? Cut one of your remaining safeties and sign one who has never played in your system, that’s what. At least if you’re Green Bay Packers’ general manager Ted Thompson. Look, I have been a Ted […]

The Packers Defensive Resurgence Begins On The Line And A Few Other Notes

No, it wasn’t lost on us. We pointed out how well the Green Bay Packers defense played in week one both during the game and in the aftermath. That, however, has been somewhat lost in the blather surrounding the terrible performance of the Packers offensive line. It should be noted, though, both Cullen Jenkins and […]

Atari Bigby Has Competition, A.J. Hawk’s Role Diminishing

In what looks to be the one true battle remaining in training camp, the Green Bay Packers seem undecided on who to start at safety opposite Nick Collins. Atari Bigby, who is coming off major offseason ankle surgery, was projected to be that guy. However, free agent signee Anthony Smith has outplayed Bigby in almost […]

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 […]

Anthony Smith in Hunt for Starting Safety Spot?

Anthony Smith Randy Moss

Anthony Smith, whom the Green Bay Packers picked up as a free agent this offseason, may find himself in the hunt for a starting safety spot when training camp opens. Smith has been lining up with the Packers No. 1 defense during OTAs, which means absolutely nothing other than last year’s starters, Atari Bigby and […]

It’s All Part Of The Plan

Ted Thompson creeps out the Green bay media at least week

The NFL’s annual spending orgy that we call free agency has pretty much come and gone. Predictably, a large contingent of Green Bay Packers fans have been lamenting the fact that, yet again, GM Ted Thompson failed to sign a single average player to a multi-million dollar contract. Coming off an utterly disappointing season, the […]

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 […]

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 […]
