Lynch Talk Isn’t Dead Yet

The talk of the Green Bay Packers trading for Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch isn’t quite dead yet, despite reports last week the Bills would not move him. Late Monday, The Buffalo News reported talks for Lynch were intensifying. Lynch was the featured back in the Bills 34-7 loss to the Packers last Sunday, […]

Bulaga Outplays Clifton, But McCarthy Stands By The Veteran

Bryan Bulaga

Rookie Bryan Bulaga replaced an ineffective Chad Clifton at left tackle for the Green Bay Packers midway through the second quarter of the team’s win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. After the game Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the move was made because Clifton was suffering from a knee injury, but also noted Clifton […]

Packers Do What They’re Supposed To With The Bills

Clay Matthews

I’d like to say we learned a lot about the Green Bay Packers after they defeated the Buffalo Bills 34-7 on Sunday, but I can’t. The Packers let the Bills hang around in the first half, but ultimately did exactly what they were supposed to do — dominate one of the worst teams in the […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Bills

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. Don’t count me among them. Like last week, this game will be much closer than it needs to be. Obviously, the biggest question mark for […]

Underwood, Neal Remain Questionable, Colledge Joins Them

It looks increasingly likely the Green Bay Packers will be without key contributors at two of their thinnest positions this weekend, as cornerback Brandon Underwood and defensive end Mike Neal are listed as questionable on the injury report. Underwood, who will be the Packers nickel or dime back when he returns, has been out with […]

Keys To Beating The Bills

The real key for the Green Bay Packers to defeat the Buffalo Bills on Sunday is simple: show up. Yes, the Bills are that bad. In fact, they may be the worst team the Packers face all season. The biggest key for the Packers is stopping the Bills return game, which features rookie C.J. Spiller […]

Graham Harrell Unlikely To Make Final Roster

I was a little disappointed to read Rob Demovsky’s article earlier this week about Green Bay Packers third-string quarterback Graham Harrell. According to Demovsky, Harrell has little chance of making the Packers final roster. The team kept only two quarterbacks on their opening-day roster last season and that appears to be the way they’re leaning […]

NFL Could Be Headed To London Full Time

The NFL has been playing one game each season in London for several years now. That isn’t likely to affect the Green Bay Packers under it’s current format because Packers fans and the team would go bat shit if the league proposed moving a home game out of Lambeau Field, particularly to another country. Somewhat […]

T.O. To Chicago?

That has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Really, I could care less what the Chicago Bears do. They’re still going to be the third or fourth best team in the NFC North if they sign Jesus Christ himself, but… Word is, free agent receiver Terrell Owens was in Chicago this week for some […]

Brian Cushing Beats Clay Matthews For Rookie Of The Year… Again

Brian Cushing

Houston Texans’ linebacker Brian Cushing won the defensive rookie of the year again, in an unprecedented re-vote by the Associated Press, which hands out the award. The re-vote was called after Cushing was suspended four games by the NFL for violating the league’s policy on steroids and related substances. Cushing didn’t receive anywhere near the […]

Clay Matthews Will Get Another Shot At Defensive Rookie Of The Year

Clay Matthews

Now that Houston Texans’ linebacker Brian Cushing has been suspended for violating the league’s policy on steroids and related substances, the Associated Press, which presents the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year Award, has decided to re-vote for the honor. Cushing will remain on the ballot, but there’s a chance he won’t win the award […]

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 Get Lucky, Bulaga Falls To No. 23

Bryan Bulaga

With all the talk of trading up or trading down, the Green Bay Packers got lucky in the end with Iowa left tackle Bryan Bulaga falling to the team as they stood pat at No. 23. There was word earlier in the day that Packers’ GM Ted Thompson was considering trading up to grab Bulaga, […]

Tom Brady

The Sunday night games are Oct. 24 vs. the Vikings at Lambeau Field, Nov. 7 vs. the Cowboys at Lambeau Field, and Dec. 29 […]

Chargers’ Cromartie To Packers: Only If Price Is Right

Antonio Cromartie

The San Diego Chargers need a running back. LaDanian Tomlinson, who will turn 31 in June, is likely to be released by the team after gaining only 730 yards and averaging 3.3 yards per carry in 2009. His backup, Darren Sproles, will be a restricted free agent. The Chargers could re-sign Sproles, but after paying […]

Vikings Lose Los Angeles As Leverage In Stadium Battle

The Minnesota Vikings lost some big-time leverage in its quest for a new stadium. The company behind the plan to lure the NFL back to Los Angeles announced Tuesday that the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills will be the first teams it will try to relocate. Majestic Realty Co. managing partner John Semcken said the […]

Packers Should Pursue Buffalo’s Ex-Special Teams Coach

Bobby April

The Green Bay Packers would be foolish not to pursue ex-Buffalo Bills’ special teams coach Bobby April in the offseason. April, 56, exercised a clause in his contract Tuesday making him a free agent after the Bills organization told him Monday he and the other assistant coaches had the right to pursue other coaching jobs […]

Cushing Wins Defensive Rookie of the Year

Cushing beat Matthews handily

Both Fox Sports and ESPN have reported that Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing has been named NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. Cushing was a runaway winner, receiving 39 of a possible 50 votes. Buffalo Bills safety Jairus Byrd finished second with six votes, followed by Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews with three, and […]

The Brian Brohm Era Begins Now!

Word out of Buffalo is that Green Bay Packers’ castoff and former second-round pick Brian Brohm will start at quarterback for the Bills this week. It’s not exactly a let’s-see-what-this-kid-can-do move, but more of a we-don’t-have-any-other-healthy-quarterbacks move. The Bills opening day starter, Trent Edwards, has been lost for the season with an ankle injury and […]

Packers Give Up On Brian Brohm, QB Signs With Buffalo

The Green Bay Packers have officially given up on quarterback Brian Brohm, whom general manager Ted Thompson selected with a second round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. Brohm was signed off the Packers practice squad by the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday, and despite having an open roster slot after releasing receiver Jake Allen earlier […]
