Al Harris Will Open Season On PUP List

Green Bay Packers cornerback Al Harris will start the season on the physically unable to perform list, according to coach Mike McCarthy. The move means Harris, who hasn’t practiced this preseason while he recovers from a serious knee injury, won’t be available to the Packers for the first six weeks of the season. “Al Harris […]

Shields Playing Nickel, Lee In Danger Of Getting Cut

Undrafted free agent cornerback Sam Shields looks like he’s just about locked up a roster spot on the Green Bay Packers. Pat Lee, a former second-round pick, looks like he’s in danger of getting cut. Shields served as the Packers nickel cornerback during Sunday’s practice. While some sources have suggested he could soon be taking […]

Observations From Packers 59-24 Victory Over Colts

Peyton Manning

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 […]

No Need To Panic About Defense Yet

Matt Hasselbeck

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 […]

Rejoice! Jarrett Bush Will Not Be Your Nickel Back!

The bane of my personal existence as a Green Bay Packers fan over the past three seasons may finally be getting what every sane person who’s ever seen a football game thinks he deserves: a pink slip. I mean, let’s face it. Jarrett Bush is the worst cornerback in the history of history and yet […]

Expect Matthews To Rush From Just About Everywhere

It’s become apparent that Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews will be coming at quarterbacks from places other than just his customary spot at right outside linebacker. Matthews rushed the quarterback from the inside linebacker position several times during minicamp, a move that appears to be part of the evolution of Dom Capers’ defense […]

Packers Depth Chart: That’s Interesting, Man

The Sporting News released their pre-training camp preview for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday and our initial reaction was, to borrow a line from The Dude, that’s interesting, man. The depth chart wasn’t interesting so much for the starting lineups, but more surprising on some of the second-string players. First, it’s important to point […]

Williams, Bigby Remain Unsigned

Green Bay Packers’ cornerback Tramon Williams and safety Atari Bigby did not sign their restricted free agent tenders by today’s 12 a.m. ET deadline.

From the You’re A Rich Athlete, Watch Your Ass Files comes this number: several members of the Green Bay Packers were interviewed as part of the investigation of two alleged sexual assaults at a Lake Delton condo.

Brandon Underwood Making The Biggest Second-Year Jump

It’s only OTAs, but Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy made an interesting comment today just after I was done questioning the team’s cornerbacks. McCarthy told reporters cornerback Brandon Underwood, a sixth-round pick out of Cincinnati in 2009, has made the biggest jump from year one to year two. Now, we don’t want to read […]

Should The Packers Be Preparing For Shootouts?

Much has been made of the games the Green Bay Packers lost to the Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers, as well as the playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals, last season.
