T.J. Lang

A look at the Green Bay Packers’ Monday practice. T.J. Lang has a real shot at left guard, Aaron Rodgers is finally on the same page as his receivers, and the day’s big catches are chronicled.

Packers At The White House [Photos]

As you probably know by now, the Green Bay Packers got to go to the White House on Friday. Various players and the organization unloaded photos of the experience and, well, we grabbed them all and put them in this gallery.

Who Made It To Packers Offensive Line Workouts?

Bryan Bulaga

As we told you last week, the Green Bay Packers offensive linemen worked out together near Nashville for three days this week. Tackle Chad Clifton and center Scott Wells, who organized the get together, live in the area. What we didn’t know until today, is who actually showed up.

Offensive Line Takes Lead On Workouts

Chad Clifton

It looks like the Green Bay Packers offensive linemen are taking the lead on organized workouts during the lockout. Although they won’t include any players other than those protecting quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Packers linemen will be the first group on the team to get together for any sort of team-oriented activity since the lockout started.

Packers Throw Out First Pitch, Brewers Immediately Sign Them

Packers first pitch

Twelve members of the world champion Green Bay Packers were on hand for the Milwaukee Brewers home opener Monday afternoon to throw out the first pitch… er, pitches. I’m only kidding about the Brewers signing anyone, but hell, none of the Packers have anything to do during the damn lockout and the Brewers supposedly vaunted […]

Packers May Have A Shot At Wisconsin’s Carimi

Gabe Carimi

Wisconsin Badgers offensive tackle Gabe Carimi was one of the best offensive linemen in college football in 2010.

The Badgers left tackle won the Outland Trophy as the top interior lineman in college football, he was a consensus first-team All American, the Big Ten offensive lineman of the year and an All-Big Ten first-team selection.

Draft Needs Start With Linebacker, Offensive Line

Clay Matthews

The Green Bay Packers will go into this year’s NFL Draft with a roster that doesn’t have a lot of holes.

The team could use upgrades in two key areas, though. The Packers still don’t have a pass-rush threat at linebacker opposite Clay Matthews and could also use help along the offensive line.

Clifton Will Be Back

Chad Clifton

Green Bay Packers left tackle Chad Clifton confirmed he plans on returning next season, earlier this week. There was some thought the 11-year veteran would ride off into the sunset if the Packers win the Super Bowl, but Clifton didn’t hesitate to say no when asked if he might retire. Although he’s been bothered by […]

Five Packers Make Pro Bowl; Rodgers Not One Of Them

Greg Jennings

Five members of the Green Bay Packers made the Pro Bowl. Despite appearing in the NFL’s Pro Bowl ad, quarterback Aaron Rodgers is not one of them. The Packers who will make the trip to Hawaii are receiver Greg Jennings, tackle Chad Clifton, linebacker Clay Matthews, cornerback Charles Woodson and safety Nick Collins. Collins, Woodson […]

Lang, McDonald Could Be Future Starters On Offensive Line

After the Green Bay Packers’ loss to the Atlanta Falcons, we were quick to point out the offensive line’s ineffectual run blocking. It was pretty clear after the loss that everyone not named Josh Sitton was struggling in the running game and the stats backed it up. The Packers showed improvement against an inferior opponent […]

Packers Offensive Line Hyped, But They’re Really Not That Good

Josh Sitton

The Green Bay Packers offensive line has been getting a lot of positive hype this season, primarily because they’ve kept quarterback Aaron Rodgers off his ass, for the most part. Indeed, the Packers offensive line has improved in pass protection. They’ve allowed only 21 sacks so far this year, which is the 12th fewest in […]

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 — […]

Packers Lackluster In Loss To Redskins, Injuries Continue To Mount

Donald Lee

The Green Bay Packers did everything they could to keep the Washington Redskins in the football game for four quarters. In the end, the Redskins finally took advantage to win 16-13 on a Graham Gano 33-yard field goal in overtime. After a strong first half, the Packers offense failed to do anything of note in […]

Bulaga Likely To Get First Start

The Bryan Bulaga era starts… Sunday… probably. The Green Bay Packers are likely to be without right tackle Mark Tauscher, who is battling a shoulder injury, on Sunday. Bedard — who for the rest of his Packers’ tenure will only be referred to by a single name, like Madonna — says the rookie will get […]

There Is No Problem With The Packers Running Game

See what I did with that headline right there? I toed the company line. Do I believe it? Well, I’m not an idiot, so no. Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy, on the other hand… Look, I don’t want to get into what a complete turd I think McCarthy is again, so let me get […]

Frank Zombo Is A Starter

My friend Sean calls him half zombie, half Rambo. I suppose that probably makes him all man… or something. Whatever the hell he is, undrafted rookie Frank Zombo is now the Green Bay Packers starting outside linebacker. Packers coach Mike McCarthy announced Zombo would replace Brad Jones, on Wednesday. Jones missed Monday’s game with a […]

Welcome Back, Mike McCarthy’s Team

Devin Hester

Let’s be realistic. The better team did not win on Monday Night Football. Forget that the Green Bay Packers have no running game. Forget that the defense played their usual bend-but-don’t-break brand of football. The Green Bay Packers lost to the Chicago Bears 20-17 on Monday night because they exhibited the same stupid, aggravating play […]

Predictons: Packers vs. Bears

Steffen: It’s hard for me to say this, but I think Packer nation just has to accept it — the Chicago Bears are better than they were last year. They are a different, more confident team. They are playing faster on a defense that features a refurbished Brian Urlacher and the freakish abilities of Julius […]

Clifton, Colledge Likely To Start

It looks like the Green Bay Packers will open their game with the Chicago Bears tonight with the same starting offensive line they opened the season with. Both Chad Clifton and Daryn Colledge practiced with the No. 1 unit on Saturday and will start barring a last-minute setback. Clifton has been battling a knee injury […]

Colledge Sprains Knee

Green Bay Packers left guard Daryn Colledge was added to the team’s injury report on Friday with a sprained knee. Rookie Bryan Bulaga practiced with the first team in Colledge’s spot. Left tackle Chad Clifton, meanwhile, returned to practice and was a full participant. It seemed like Clifton’s balky knee would keep him out of […]
