Marshawn Lynch Could Be On Packers’ Radar

If you read my previous post today, you know what I think the chances are of the Green Bay Packers actually making a move of consequence this offseason. Still, it would be remiss of me not to mention the possibility of the Buffalo Bills’ Marshawn Lynch joining the Packers. Bob McGinn did just that over […]

Packers Will Add Several Sixth Rounders, And Other Fun Stats

One thing you can bet on when you’re watching the Green Bay Packers’ draft unfold under the mastermind that is Ted Thompson, is that Thompson will come out with more picks than he went in with. In Thompson’s five drafts with the Packers, he’s traded back to pick up additional picks in each year except […]

Packers Looking At Brian Westbrook

Brian Westbrook

A day after we told you the Green Bay Packers were looking at running backs in the early rounds of the draft, it looks like they’ve expanded that search to the free agent scrap heap as well. Greg Bedard reported today, the Packers are kicking the tires on former Philadelphia Eagles’ starter Brian Westbrook. Though […]

Packers Looking At Running Backs

The Green Bay Packers have a clear-cut starting running back in Ryan Grant and they have several more pressing needs to fill, but word is, the team may consider picking a running back high in this year’s NFL draft. Dan Arkush says the main reason is one we discussed previously – the lack of any […]

Packers Have Faith In Jackson, But It’s Unclear Why

Brandon Jackson

No one will probably ever use the term dynamic to describe the Green Bay Packers’ running game under Mike McCarthy. Ryan Grant is solid, but unspectacular. His backups have been a collection of nondescript guys who typically don’t see much time on the field and that goes for the Packers’ No. 2 runner Brandon Jackson, […]

Tomlinson To Packers – Why It Makes No Sense

LaDainian Tomlinson

You don’t have to be a San Deigo Chargers’ fan to be a fan of LaDainian Tomlinson. The guy is not only likable, but he’s been one of the best players in the NFL since 2001. If you’re a fan of the Green Bay Packers, you’ve probably had at least a fleeting visage of Tomlinson […]

Ahman Green Expects To Be Back, But He May Be the Only One

Ahman Green

Ahman Green broke the Green Bay Packers’ career rushing mark in his half-season stint with the team in 2009, and served as a decent short yardage back and special teams player. Green, who at 32 is ancient for an NFL running back, will be an unrestricted free agent when the league year opens on March […]

Packers Tried to Bring In Aaron Stecker

I have it from a reliable source that the Green Bay Packers tried to bring in former Ashwaubenon star Aaron Stecker for a tryout today. Unfortunately, the Packers didn’t get a chance to take a look at the former Tampa Bay and New Orleans running back/kick returner, as he had already signed with the Atlanta […]

Shedding Some Light on Packers Signing of Ahman Green

When the Green Bay Packers signed Ahman Green on Wednesday there was a range of responses – from “awesome!” to “what the hell?” Well, let’s get this out of the way right at the top, Green isn’t the player he was when he left the Packers via free agency to sign with the Houston Texans. […]

Derrick Frost Gone, Finally

On Monday, the Green Bay Packers closed the book on what was probably their biggest mistake of the season. That’s when they released punter Derrick Frost. Good riddance, I say. The move was long overdue. Frost finished his career as a Packer ranked 26th in the league in both gross (42.1 yards) and net (36.1 yards) punting average. […]

The Packers Are Dead, Long Live The Packers

Aaron Rodgers

With yet another heartbreaking 4 points-or-less loss, the Green Bay Packers have all but assured that the playoffs will be out of their reach, with their 35-31 defeat at the hands of the Carolina Panthers. The Packers don’t deserve it this year, not this coaching staff, not this underachieving group of players. But it’s hard […]

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 […]

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 […]

Koren Robinson Out; Kick Returner Needed

Koren Robinson

There’s no doubt the Green Bay Packers have a log jam at receiver after drafting Jordy Nelson in the second round and that other guy in the seventh round (you know, the white kid from San Diego) of the 2008 NFL draft. Pair that with a solid, sometimes spectacular top three returning in Donald Driver, […]
