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 […]
Why are Green Bay Packers fans the best in the NFL? Because of shit like this. Suffering from Hepatitis C, the 55-year-old Chicago resident would have died had he not received a liver transplant at the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison on March 14, 2010. [Peter] Cashman later discovered that the donor was Amy […]
A lot of people seem to think the Green Bay Packers have a hole to fill on their defensive line, with defensive end Cullen Jenkins expected to depart in free agency and Johnny Jolly making stupid decisions somewhere in Houston. Football Outsiders named defensive line as the team’s biggest post-draft hole and several experts suggested it was the Packers’ biggest need going into the draft.
We figure most politicians are humorless pricks, but apparently even they get the Jay Cutler joke. That is, that Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is a joke. It started on Monday when Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, a Republican from Janesville, opened his speech at the Economic Forum in Chicago with these words.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers isn’t so sure he and his teammates are going to be getting together for team workouts anytime soon. While several teams around the NFL have pulled together some sort of team-oriented workouts, the Packers haven’t and don’t seem in any hurry to do so. In fact, linebacker A.J. Hawk essentially said he doesn’t see the point.
Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings is one of the best in the game, but he’s getting his motivation from someone who’s a little better — Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald is a five-time Pro Bowler and one of the hardest workers in the NFL. Jennings, who has four fewer Pro Bowl selections, began working out with Fitzgerald in Arizona this week, under former NFL receivers coach Jerry Sullivan.
