Seriously, whoever came up with the idea to rank the 10 toughest venues in the NFL must be a brain surgeon. When you consider the venue itself, the team playing it and the fans sitting in it, Lambeau Field is clearly the hands-down winner, which is exactly what the geniuses at ESPN found out this […]
After we wrote about the NFL planning for an eight-game season, someone asked me if I knew how the league would handle the schedule. If the labor dispute costs the NFL any amount of games, the league will have to adjust the schedule in some fashion. The most obvious potential solution is to simply keep […]
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.
Certainly, this is another subjective list, but it’s hard to argue with the Green Bay Packers as the franchise with the best quarterbacks in NFL history. The important thing to note here is quarterbacks is plural, so this isn’t a Johnny Unitas vs. Joe Montana argument. NFL.com’s Dave Dameshek recently took a look at every NFL […]
Throughout the current NFL labor dispute, the supposedly defunct NFLPA has responded to calls from the owners to accept a smaller share of the revenue pie with the rallying cry, “show us your books!” This resonates easily with the public, which sees the logic of demanding the owners prove their claim the current CBA is untenable and that […]
Fox Sports’ Adam Schein compiled his third annual NFL organization rankings and not surprisingly, the Green Bay Packers came out on top, dethroning two-time winner, the New England Patriots. What does this mean? Probably not much, other than the Packers rate highly in several subjective categories. While the categories used to determine the rankings — […]
We all know Green Bay Packers tight Jermichael Finley is an impact player. We also know adding him to an already-potent offense could make the Packers almost unstoppable in 2011, but the National Football Post’s Matt Bowen says Finley is the key to beating the Chicago Bears. The Packers had significant trouble with the Bears last season.
We love tales of Minnesota Vikings woe almost as much as we love the Green Bay Packers, so it’s literally impossible for us not to tell you about Pro Football Talk’s list of the team’s four worst moments since 1987, which is the last time there was a lockout. PFT previously looked at the Packers’ four worst moments. The Vikings’ list of failure and ineptitude is much longer, though.
Former Ohio State and current Green Bay Packers linebacker A.J. took some time to defend his former Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel, who resigned amid allegations of NCAA rules violations on Monday. The Ohio State program has come under fire for providing players with improper benefits, among other things. “Some of the stuff that he was […]
Prior to the 2009 NFL Draft, there were a lot of whispers the Green Bay Packers were interested in outside linebacker Larry English of Northern Illinois. Sports Illustrated’s Don Banks suggested the Packers were considering English with the No. 9 overall selection. Meanwhile, the Press Gazette’s Pete Dougherty spoke at length about English’s potential during […]
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.
We already know rules don’t apply to the NFL, especially their own. Despite a lockout that isn’t likely to be resolved until late June at the earliest, the Green Bay Packers will hold their Super Bowl ring ceremony on June 16. The league has reportedly granted the team an exemption — their second one this […]
This probably wasn’t the best offseason for a lockout, at least as far as the Green Bay Packers organization is concerned. Every team coming off a Super Bowl win experiences some sort of hangover. The players are partying, making personal appearances, getting their faces in the media and partaking in all kinds of stupid promotional and […]
Pro Football Talk counted down the four worst moments in Green Bay Packers history since 1987, which was the last season with a work stoppage. Here’s their list. 4. Brett Favre’s return to Lambeau Field as a member of the Minnesota Vikings 3. 4th-and-26 (2003 NFC Divisional loss to Philadelphia) 2. Super Bowl XXXII loss […]
Despite a previous report to the contrary, the Green Bay Packers have not cut their coaches’ salaries. Several clubs around the league have or will cut their assistant coaches salaries from 20-50 percent because of the lockout. The Packers were named as one of two teams that had already done so. The guy who said […]
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.
The Green Bay Packers are one of two teams to cut salaries for assistant coaches, according to Larry Kennan, director of the NFL Coaches Association. The other team is the Baltimore Ravens. While the Packers and Ravens have already acted, assistant coaches around the league will have their salaries slashed anywhere from 20-50 percent because of […]
