Seven Green Bay Packers made CBSSports.com senior writer Pete Prisco’s top 100 NFL players of 2011 list. The top-ranked Packer should come as no surprise. QB Aaron Rodgers came in at No. 6 overall — behind Texans wideout Andre Johnson, Raiders cornerback Nmandi Asomugha, Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware and (puke) quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton […]
There’s speculation Johnny Jolly’s second arrest for codeine possession, which put his NFL career in serious jeopardy, will force the Green Bay Packers to reevaluate re-signing defensive end Cullen Jenkins. Jenkins, who had seven sacks in 11 games in 2010, will be one of the most sought-after defensive free agents whenever free agency begins.
Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey will not play in the Super Bowl, coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Friday.

We’ve somehow made it through eight weeks of the NFL season and you know what that means — every dickhead with column space is handing out their midseason awards, naming All-Pro teams, etc. What does a midseason award get you? Not a goddam thing, but the stats tells me people like to read about them, […]
No joke. The Green Bay Packers have lost their 10th player to season-ending injured reserve. Today, the team added linebacker Brad Jones to the list.

Green Bay Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins is not the kind of guy who makes a scene… unless he wants a new contract. Ah yes, it’s that time of year. Or at least it’s that time of year for Jenkins — the season of discontent. Jenkins is in the final year of his contract and […]
Steffen: The Vegas oddsmakers have the Green Bay Packers favored by how much again? 13.5 points? There are plenty of folks out there who’d tell you that isn’t nearly enough.

Maybe it’s time to table the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl talk for a bit.
