Cullen Jenkins

Fresh off setting a career high in sacks after a two-sack performance against San Francisco, Green Bay Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins got some bad news — the calf strain he suffered on Sunday will keep him out of this week’s game with Detroit and possibly longer. “It may be a couple weeks. When you’re […]

Young And Unproven Players Are Now Part Of Packers’ Success

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 […]

Brad Jones Goes On Injured Reserve

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 […]

Poppinga, Neal Head To Injured Reserve

Although the Green Bay Packers made it out of their game with the Minnesota Vikings almost injury free, the team still got some bad news on Monday regarding injuries. Both linebacker Brady Poppinga and defensive end Mike Neal will be joining seven teammates on injured reserve. Poppinga, who hurt himself in the loss to Miami, […]

The Brett Favre Curse Is Broken

Brett Favre

The Green Bay Packers finally pulled out a close game and in doing so, ended the curse of Brett Favre, beating the Minnesota Vikings 28-24. The Packers sit in a tie with the Chicago Bears atop the NFC North with the Chicago Bears at 4-3. Although the Packers defense gave up plenty of yards — […]

Rodgers Good To Go, Matthews Game-Time Decision

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 […]

Cullen Jenkins Doesn’t Want To Make A Scene; Makes A Scene

Green Bay Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins is not the kind of guy who makes a scene… unless he wants a new contract. Ah yes, it’s that time of year. Or at least it’s that time of year for Jenkins — the season of discontent. Jenkins is in the final year of his contract and […]

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 […]

Observations From Packers 17-13 Loss To Chiefs

Arrowhead Stadium

The Green Bay Packers fell to the Kansas City Chiefs 17-13, Thursday night in their preseason finale. The game wasn’t easy to watch. The starters played only one series and veterans Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Grant, Donald Driver, Chad Clifton and Charles Woodson were healthy scratches. There were some interesting developments in the game, however, and […]

Packers Veterans Who May Be In Trouble

At the end of every summer, the Green Bay Packers end up cutting a couple veteran players whose release comes as a surprise. Last year, it was receiver Ruvell Martin and safety Anthony Smith. Here’s a list of several players who could potentially be on that list this year. Justin Harrell, defensive tackle — The […]

Hi, I’m C.J. Wilson And I’m Pissed!

C.J. Wilson

I can’t recall a time when a seventh-round draft pick has been this pissed off, but Green Bay Packers’ seventh-round draft pick C.J. Wilson feels a little slighted. Wilson had delusions of grandeur entering the NFL Draft, thinking he would be drafted in the fourth or fifth round. I’ve seen at least one prognosticator who […]

The End Of The Cullen Jenkins Era Approaches

Cullen Jenkins has been a pretty solid performer for the Green Bay Packers over the years. He had perhaps his best all-around season for the Packers in 2009 after transitioning full time to defensive end, where he recorded 32 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 3 forced fumbles and his first career interception. In his previous seasons, when […]

Packers’ Final Selection: Defensive End C.J. Wilson

C.J. Wilson

The Green Bay Packers’ final selection in the NFL Draft (No. 230) followed the same logic as most of the team’s other picks since the first round – that is to say, no logic existed. The Packers selected C.J. Wilson, a defensive end from East Carolina. On the surface you have to question why the […]
