Donald Driver will one day enter the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, but surprisingly, Driver has his eye on the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. “If I can play two to three more years and put a nice little stamp on it, those records will stand there forever, and when it’s all said and done, maybe one day I can stand up here in Canton, Ohio, saying, ‘I made it,’” Driver said.
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 [...]
Green Bay Packers receiver James Jones is likely to have some suitors once free agency begins, providing the new collective bargaining agreement allows him to become a free agent as expected.
Jones’ name has already been mentioned in Cleveland, where the Browns have one of the worst receiving corps in the league.
For some reason, this touchdown reception by Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver against the San Francisco 49ers never gets old. So, watch it one more time before the Nazis at the NFL have it pulled from YouTube. If you heard the local radio broadcast, Larry McCarren yelled, “The old man’s still got it!” as [...]
Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings is playing some outstanding football of late. In the last five games, Jennings has 32 receptions for 520 yards and six touchdowns. Those are pretty nice numbers, especially when compared to his first five games — 14 receptions for 183 yards and three touchdowns. Additionally, Jennings’ targets have increased [...]
The New York Jets will have their best defender, cornerback Darrelle Revis, back at full strength for their match-up with the Green Bay Packers, this Sunday — something that isn’t good news for the team’s passing attack. The Jets are coming off a bye and Revis says he’s 100 percent for the first time since [...]
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 [...]
Steffen: After what feels like decades of ineptitude (oh wait, it has been decades) the Detroit Lions’ offseason roster moves had many prognosticators predicting marked improvement over last season’s two-win season. Indeed the Lions are an improved team. Led by rookie dynamo Jahvid Best, the offense has more firepower and fellow rookie defensive tackle/tank Ndamukong [...]
There’s a reason I hate that inbred species known as the Minnesota Vikings fan more than I do the Chicago Bears fan. It’s because the former is a completely ignorant amalgamation of failure and filth that they pollute the gene pool and make us all worse off. The latter beast is usually docile and like [...]
The Green Bay Packers offense looks like a juggernaut going into the 2010 season. The possibilities of this season got me thinking about some of the greatest individual seasons by teammates in NFL history. The Packers had two 1,000-yard receivers, a 1,000-yard rusher and a 4,000-yard passer in 2009. Those numbers came courtesy of Greg [...]
I thought it was a joke at first, but the Green Bay Packers have indeed given Donald Driver, their 35-year-old wide receiver, a two-year contract extension. Driver was in the final year of his current deal, in which he was scheduled to earn $4 million in base salary and a $2.8 million roster bonus. Terms [...]
The weather man was wrong. It’s sunny and 85 degrees about an hour before practice. Quick observations: – There is a lot of talk here in Green Bay on the Brett Favre retirement. My thoughts — he stays retired until September 9th when, while mowing the lawn, he decides to drive the lawnmower to the [...]
Jordy Nelson hasn’t exactly set the world on fire since the Green Bay Packers made him their first selection (second round) in the 2008 draft. He’s shown flashes of potential. He’s shown his blazing speed. He hasn’t developed into a top-of-the-line NFL receiver. That shouldn’t necessarily come as a surprise, considering Nelson is sitting behind [...]
Green Bay Packers’ receiver Donald Driver says he wants to play until he’s 40. This nugget came out when Driver was talking about having his knees scoped, last week. I didn’t pay much attention at the time because one player or another seems to be getting a knee scope all the time. Driver had a [...]
