Nick Collins May Hold Out

Nick Collins

All is quiet on the Nick Collins front and that isn’t good. The Green Bay Packers starting strong safety avoided offseason team activities last year because he was angry the Packers wouldn’t renegotiate his contract. Now, Collins is about to become a restricted free agent and there seems to be no movement on a new […]

A.J. Hawk To Remain With Packers, But At What Price?

A.J. Hawk

If you read this blog regularly, you know what we think about Green Bay Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk – not much. Hawk had another unspectacular season in Green Bay in 2009, registering 89 tackles, one sack, two interceptions and zero forced fumbles. He was replaced in the nickel defense for much of the season by […]

Ranking The Green Bay Packers’ Free Agents

Nick Collins

The Green Bay Packers have 18 players in their contract year after Monday’s resigning of linebacker Brandon Chillar. However, the situation isn’t as dire as it may look. The collective bargaining agreement – the agreement between the owners and player’s association that dictates the rules of the salary cap, free agency, guaranteed spending, rookie salaries, […]

Packers Re-Sign Brandon Chillar

With 18 players who have expiring contracts and more than $15 million in salary cap room, the Green Bay Packers finally got off their asses and re-signed someone to a long-term deal. That someone is linebacker Brandon Chillar, who received a four-year, $21 million extension today. Chillar will see $7 million in guaranteed money. Although […]

Everything Goes According to Script for Packers

This is exactly how it was supposed to play out for the Green Bay Packers. The Packers would dominate the Cleveland Browns and the Minnesota Vikings would lose on the road to the Pittsburgh Steelers, setting up a battle for first place in the NFC North next week in Lambeau Field. Technically, the Packers (4-2) […]

The Invisible Man: A.J. Hawk

In recent weeks, Hawk has seen his playing time severely reduced as it has grown obvious that he no longer fits into the Packers defensive scheme.
Here’s what I don’t understand…

Where Are the Packers Linebackers?

So far this season, trying to find one of the Packers linebackers in the middle of a play is like trying to locate Waldo in a picture with a thousand guys who are wearing red and white striped shirts and hats. The Green Bay Packers came into the season with what looked like one of […]

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 […]

Nick Barnett Is Frustrated, And So Are We

Evan Siegle, Green Bay Press-Gazette

You might have heard that Green Bay Packers’ linebacker Nick Barnett quit Twitter this week, after what some might consider an online meltdown. Barnett first stated his displeasure with the rotation at linebacker – one that on the inside includes himself, A.J. Hawk, Brandon Chillar and presumably, Desmond Bishop. This was the actual tweet, misspellings […]

Bengals 31, Packers 24 – Observations and Opinions

Chad Ochocinco Lambeau Leap

To quote The Jeffrey Lebwoski, the plan has crashed into the mountain. More painfully one sided than the close score suggests, yesterday’s Green Bay Packers’ 31-24 defeat to the lowly Cincinnati Bengals exposed more weaknesses and vulnerabilities for the Packers. The Packers’ offensive line play was even shakier than last week and aside from a […]

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 […]

Packers vs. Bills Game Notes

Johnny Jolly

The Green Bay Packers beat the Buffalo Bills 31-21 in a preseason tilt Saturday night, as the team improved to 2-0 in meaningless games. While I will again stress that no one wins anything in the preseason, Packers’ fans have some reason for excitement entering the 2009 season (which we wish would get here already). […]

Packers Training Camp Battles – Inside Linebacker

As the Green Bay Packers training camp begins to heat up, it’s becoming more apparent where the interesting positional battles are going to take place, and in some cases, they aren’t where we thought they would take place. Since the Packers have put their pads on, some players who performed well in OTAs have fallen […]

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 […]

Dom Capers and the 3-4 – A Good Fit?

Dom Capers

After an unprecedented purge of defensive coaching staff, after much hemming and hawing and after much speculation, the Green Bay Packers have settled on former Houston Texans coach Dom Capers as their new defensive coordinator. I’m not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, I like the hire. Dom Capers brings the type […]

Packers ‘Bearly’ Sneak by Chicago 37-3

Donald Lee is number 1.

Coming off two heartbreakingly close losses in a row, the Green Bay Packers desperately needed a win on Sunday to keep their division championship hopes alive. The Chicago Bears gave the Packers everything they had for the first two minutes or so, but in the end, Green Bay emerged from the hard fought game as […]

Vikings vs. Packers: Who Sucked And Who Didn’t

Nick Barnett has been lost for the season.

Every week the Green Bay Packers are starting to look more and more like a team that simply won’t live up to expectations. Yesterday, the Packers lost yet another close game to an inferior opponent, this time, 28-27 to the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers should be better than this. Maybe it’s time to accept that […]

Preseason Game 1: Bengals 20, Packers 17

Aaron Rodgers

The Green Bay Packers first preseason game is in the books, and although we could care less about preseason scores – especially that of the first game – the Packers lost to the Cincinnati Bengals, 20-17, before what seemed to be a full stadium of drunken Wisconsinites. Beyond the obvious questions, I wonder how many […]
