Rodgers Puts On Clinic, Trounces Broncos

  Just when you thought Aaron Rodgers couldn’t get any better, he puts on a performance like he did Sunday that just blows your mind. Two rushing touchdowns. Four TD passes. More than 400 yards passing and, yes, one interception but that was more bad luck on his part than a bad decision. In short, […]

Here are three key matchups in the Green Bay Packers tilt with the New Orleans Saints. The operative word is communication.

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.

Desmond Bishop

Green Bay Packers linebacker Desmond Bishop was the only member of the Green Bay Packers that didn’t get to meet president Barack Obama today. He wasn’t granted access to the White House because he forgot his ID on the team plane.

Game On: Packers Will See Obama

The Green Bay Packers will get to meet president Barack Obama after all. The organization has scheduled the traditional Super Bowl champion White House visit. Charles Woodson must be pleased.

Matthews Makes Top 10 Defensive Players

Clay Matthews

After last week’s edition of ESPN’s NFL power rankings, top helmets in the NFL, I half expected this week’s edition to focus on best colors. Of course, they went and pulled something somewhat relevant out — top 10 defensive players. Clay Matthews was the only member of the Green Bay Packers to make the top 10, finishing fifth. Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu was the consensus No. 1.

Woodson Has No Plans To Retire

Charles Woodson

Charles Woodson will turn 35 in October and is entering his 14th NFL season, but the veteran Green Bay Packers cornerback doesn’t seem to have any designs on retiring anytime soon. When asked how long he planned on playing, Woodson left his future in the Packers hands.

Veteran Packers Who Should Be Worried

James Jones

The NFL Draft changes the face of every team’s roster and the Green Bay Packers are no exception, even though they’re the reigning Super Bowl champs. Several veterans will go into training camp to fight for a roster spot, while others will simply be let go during free agency. Here’s a look at which players […]

Seven Green Bay Packers Make Top 100 List

Aaron Rodgers

Seven Green Bay Packers made CBSSports.com senior writer Pete Prisco’s top 100 NFL players of 2011 list. The top-ranked Packer should come as no surprise. QB Aaron Rodgers came in at No. 6 overall — behind Texans wideout Andre Johnson, Raiders cornerback Nmandi Asomugha, Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware and (puke) quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton […]

Woodson, Williams On Cornerback Power Rankings List

Tramon Williams

Both of the Green Bay Packers starting cornerbacks, Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams, made ESPN’s cornerback power rankings list. Woodson finished third and Williams finished seventh. Not surprisingly, the top two in the rankings were the New York Jets’ Darrelle Revis and the Oakland Raiders’ Nnamdi Asomugha, who received all the first and second place votes.

Lovie Smith: Still An Idiot

Lovie Smith

After Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith led his team to the NFC North title and NFC Championship game last season, I began to develop some respect for him. Since then, he’s done nothing but prove my initial feeling about him correct. He’s a complete idiot.

Apparently Everyone Needs To Be Told: Asomugha Is A Long Shot

Nnamdi Asomugha

Personally, I thought we made it pretty clear. Soon-to-be-former Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha isn’t likely to sign with the Green Bay Packers, even though he’s expressed an interest in rejoining former teammate Charles Woodson.

Sure, it’s a wonderful thought, pairing Asomugha with Tramon Williams and moving Woodson to free safety. Asomugha, Williams, Woodson and Nick Collins — three All Pros and one in the making.

Woodson Supports Wisconsin Workers

Charles Woodson

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson released a statement in support of Wisconsin workers over the weekend. Here it is in its entirety. Last week I was proud when many of my current and former teammates announced their support for the working families fighting for their rights in Wisconsin. Today I am honored to join […]

Woodson: Favre Had Numerous Opportunities To Reach Out

Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson was on Jim Rome’s show today and, of course, Brett Favre somehow managed to work his way into the conversation.

Rome asked Woodson about Favre’s relationship with Aaron Rodgers — Rodgers reportedly still harbors some bitterness toward Favre — and about the possibility of Favre reaching out to his former understudy.

Packers Control The World For A Minute

The Green Bay Packers got to control the world for a minute.

At least that was Charles Woodson’s assessment of what it meant to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange, which Woodson, teammates John Kuhn, Ryan Grant and Packers president Mark Murphy did, yesterday.

Obama Gets A Green Bay Welcome

Barack Obama

President Barack Obama flew into Green Bay this morning for an appearance and speech in Manitowoc. When he landed, the Chicago Bears fan was the recipient of two Green Bay Packers jerseys. The second, which is pictured above, was Charles Woodson’s No. 21 with the following personally signed message. “To President Obama See you at […]

Woodson Takes A Shot At Obama

Charles Woodson

I like Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson more every day. Woodson gave a rousing post-game locker room speech to the rest of the Packers after they beat the Chicago Bears on Sunday. At the end, Woodson takes a shot at president Barack Obama, who’s a Bears fan. Obama said he would attend the Super […]

Packers Have Three All-Pros

Clay Matthews

Three members of the Green Bay Packers were named to the All-Pro team. Clay Matthews made the first team and Charles Woodson and Nick Collins made second team. The full squad is as follows. Offense QB: Tom Brady, New England RB: Jamaal Charles, Kansas City; Arian Foster, Houston FB: Vonta Leach, Houston TE: Jason Witten, […]
