Green Bay Packers linebackers Nick Barnett, Diyral Briggs and Brad Jones and safety Morgan Burnett were spotted at Tao in the Venetian earlier this week. What were they doing? Eating and partying, of course. According to Las Vegas Weekly, the group dined at the restaurant before heading to the skybox overlooking the club.
Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Brady Poppinga was supposed to help the team in the pass rush department in 2010.
That never really happened.
Poppinga recorded 14 tackles and one sack in the Packers’ first six games before landing on injured reserve and becoming the forgotten man.
We gave you the midseason awards: other people’s edition yesterday and we also told you what we thought about midseason awards. The best word to summarize would be this one: indifference. However, we promised you our midseason awards at some point, and here they are. The difference between our midseason awards and other people’s are [...]
As the Green Bay Packers’ injuries began to pile up, quite a few people thought the wheels were about to fall off. The Packers currently have 10 players on injured reserve, five of which are starters, eight of which play defense. While Ryan Grant and the Packers lack of a certifiable running game was the [...]
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. Jones suffered a significant shoulder injury in Sunday’s win over Minnesota. During today’s press conference, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Jones would need surgery. “Brad Jones has a significant shoulder [...]
Green Bay Packers linebacker Brad Jones didn’t make a lot of plays in Sunday’s win against the Minnesota Vikings, but he did make one big one. Jones hit Vikings quarterback Brett Favre from behind on the play that would turn into Favre’s first interception on a three-interception night. On the play, Favre’s foot got caught [...]
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went through a full practice Friday and has been cleared to start against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Officially, he’s listed as probable on the injury report. “I thought Aaron Rodgers looked fine today at practice,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “From my perspective, I would say he’s ready to [...]
The Green Bay Packers got a win on Sunday, but their 28-26 victory over the Detroit Lions left a lot to be desired. The 0-4 Lions racked up more than 400 yards of offense in Lambeau Field and quarterback Shaun Hill threw for 331 yards and two touchdowns, largely on the strength of short passes [...]
My friend Sean calls him half zombie, half Rambo. I suppose that probably makes him all man… or something. Whatever the hell he is, undrafted rookie Frank Zombo is now the Green Bay Packers starting outside linebacker. Packers coach Mike McCarthy announced Zombo would replace Brad Jones, on Wednesday. Jones missed Monday’s game with a [...]
It looks like the Green Bay Packers will open their game with the Chicago Bears tonight with the same starting offensive line they opened the season with. Both Chad Clifton and Daryn Colledge practiced with the No. 1 unit on Saturday and will start barring a last-minute setback. Clifton has been battling a knee injury [...]
The Green Bay Packers offense is potent, we knew that, but in their longest outing of the preseason against last year’s AFC champs, they put any doubts to rest. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who I have a hard time believing isn’t on his way to becoming the best player in the NFL, cut up the Colts [...]
Frank Zombo looks like he might be the real deal. The Green Bay Packers signed Zombo as an undrafted free agent and converted him to outside linebacker after he played his college career as a defensive end at Central Michigan. He tallied 25.5 sacks as a Chippewa and has been generating some pressure for the [...]
The Green Bay Packers moved linebacker Brandon Chillar to outside linebacker earlier this preseason, but that experiment appears to be over. Chillar was competing with Brad Jones for the starting spot opposite Clay Matthews, but didn’t do anything to distinguish himself, despite getting plenty of opportunities with Matthews on the shelf. Chillar will remain a [...]
For the second week in a row, the Green Bay Packers offense looked unstoppable, while their defense looked suspect — this time in a 27-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Just as they did against Cleveland a week earlier, the Packers employed a vanilla version of their defense. Unlike last year, when the team was [...]
I didn’t give it a second thought when I heard the Green Bay Packers were using inside linebacker Brandon Chillar at outside linebacker. After all, the team has been experimenting a lot with their linebackers. I mean, they’ve tried 300-pound defensive end Cullen Jenkins at outside linebacker for Christ’s sake. Chillar is a different story, [...]
I’m here at the early practice once again. It’s 70 degrees, overcast, and very humid. Quick observations: Team drills – Brandon Chillar gets the nod at OLB with Brad Jones still out. – Looks like we’ll have a long portion of team drills. Not much to report during those. Game situation, offense vs defense – [...]
