Asomugha Reportedly Wants To Come To Green Bay

Nnamdi Asomugha

We didn’t pay much attention to the fact Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha became a free agent after his contract voided, earlier this week. The Green Bay Packers already have two Pro Bowl-caliber cornerbacks in Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams. They don’t really need another. However, there are reports Asomugha is interested in playing for […]

Who Is The Defensive Player Of The Year?

Clay Matthews

There was a point in the season when everyone thought the answer to the question was a foregone conclusion. Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews. Then, a series of injuries and near constant double and triple teams started to slow Matthews. That isn’t to say his presence wasn’t felt. Matthews opens things up for his […]

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 […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Falcons

Roddy White

Shawn: I’ve said all year the Green Bay Packers would win this week’s game, and if anything, I believe even more strongly in that prediction now. The Atlanta Falcons are 8-2, sure. Everyone seems to have forgotten that they beat the Saints after Garrett Hartley missed two easy field goals that would have won the […]

Stick A Fork In The Minnesota Vikings

Greg Jennings

I think we can all agree, thanks to the Green Bay Packers, we can stick a fork in the Minnesota Vikings. They’re dead. Their season is officially over after the Packers thoroughly dominated them and old man Brett Favre in a 31-3 victory at the Metrodome. None of us thought it would be as easy […]

An Evening With Charles Woodson’s TwentyFour

Earlier this fall, I gathered some of my friends together. The goal: sample some of Green Bay Packers cornerback Charles Woodson’s wine. If you don’t know the story, Woodson owns a winery in Napa Valley — TwentyFour Wines. Woodson got into wine and bought the vineyard when he played for the Oakland Raiders, hence the […]

Matthews Named Defensive Player Of The Week… Again

Clay Matthews

This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his play against the Dallas Cowboys. This is the second time Matthews has won the award, this season. He also has a defensive player of the month award to […]

Packers Release Al Harris

It’s somewhat surprising it ended like this, but the Green Bay Packers have released cornerback Al Harris, a move first reported by Jason Wilde. Harris, who suffered a major knee injury last November, has been on the physically unable to perform list throughout the season. The Packers had to make a decision on whether to […]

Midseason Awards: Total Packers Edition

We gave you the midseason awards: other people’s edition yesterday and we also told you what we thought about midseason awards. The best word to summarize would be this one: indifference. However, we promised you our midseason awards at some point, and here they are. The difference between our midseason awards and other people’s are […]

Masthay NFC Special Teams Player Of The Week

There’s a headline you probably never thought you’d see, but it isn’t a mistake. As we pointed out in our post-game analysis, punter Tim Masthay had a killer game in the Green Bay Packers 9-0 defeat of the New York Jets. At the time, we called him the game MVP. Today, there’s word Masthay will […]

Packers Offer Williams Multi-Year Deal

The Green Bay Packers are finally ready to pony up for cornerback Tramon Williams, who is having his best season in his first as a full-time starter. According to the Journal Sentinel, the Packers have offered Williams a contract that will pay him greater than $5 million per year. Williams is currently playing on a […]

This Time, Woodson Defensive Player Of The Week

Another week, another player of the week award for the Green Bay Packers. Cornerback Charles Woodson captured the NFC’s Defensive Player of the Week award, an award he won twice last season, for his play against Detroit. Woodson recorded 14 tackles and returned an interception for a touchdown against the Lions in his best game […]

Packers Not Impressive In Win Over Lions

Shaun Hill

The Green Bay Packers got a win on Sunday, but their 28-26 victory over the Detroit Lions left a lot to be desired. The 0-4 Lions racked up more than 400 yards of offense in Lambeau Field and quarterback Shaun Hill threw for 331 yards and two touchdowns, largely on the strength of short passes […]

Clay Matthews: Defensive Player Of The Month

Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews is the NFC Defensive Player of the Month for September. Matthews tallied 15 tackles, six sacks and a forced fumble in three games this month. His sacks came in back-to-back three-sack performances in the Packers first two games of the season. Matthews leads the league in sacks and […]

This About Sums It Up

The following video sums up what most of us were feeling as the Green Bay Packers fell to the Chicago Bears, Monday night. The agony and the ecstasy may be an appropriate title, although switching it around is probably more accurate. I can’t really see what was going on in the game, but my guess […]

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 […]

Packers Not Exactly Dominant In Season-Opening Win

Kevin Kolb

Maybe it’s time to table the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl talk for a bit. The defense, led by linebacker Clay Matthews, was the biggest reason the Packers were able to escape Philadelphia with a 27-20 win over the Eagles. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense wasn’t close to firing on all cylinders, but […]

Williams May Be Next In Line For An Extension

After the Green Bay Packers gave cornerback Charles Woodson a contract extension yesterday, there was was some speculation Tramon Williams might be next. Williams will start at cornerback opposite Woodson this season, at least until Al Harris returns from the physically unable to perform list and gets back into football shape. Although Williams commits his […]

Packers Reward Woodson With Two-Year Extension

The Green Bay Packers have locked up cornerback Charles Woodson for an additional two years. Woodson, the reigning NFL defensive player of the year, has three years remaining on his current deal. He will be 39 if he plays out the full contract, which seems unlikely. The deal is worth $55 million over the next […]
