Underwood Out, Neal And Bishop May Not Go Sunday

The Friday injury report essentially determines who will play and who won’t on Sunday in the NFL. For the Green Bay Packers, cornerback Brandon Underwood has officially been ruled out and defensive end Mike Neal and linebacker Desmond Bishop are questionable. The good news is the Packers will have all their starters on the field. […]

Nelson, Williams The Packers Primary Returners

The Green Bay Packers will go into their week one game with the Philadelphia Eagles with receiver Jordy Nelson and cornerback Tramon Williams as their primary return men after cutting safety Will Blackmon, Saturday. Nelson will return kicks and Williams will return punts. Running back Brandon Jackson will also be in the mix as a […]

Observations From Packers 17-13 Loss To Chiefs

Arrowhead Stadium

The Green Bay Packers fell to the Kansas City Chiefs 17-13, Thursday night in their preseason finale. The game wasn’t easy to watch. The starters played only one series and veterans Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Grant, Donald Driver, Chad Clifton and Charles Woodson were healthy scratches. There were some interesting developments in the game, however, and […]

Several Players Could Be Traded

Several members of the Green Bay Packers could be playing to impress other teams tonight. The Packers need to trim their roster by 22 players on Saturday, but it seems increasingly likely the team could make a trade. Some of the players who could potentially be on the move include tackle Breno Giacomini, guard/center Evan […]

Shields Playing Nickel, Lee In Danger Of Getting Cut

Undrafted free agent cornerback Sam Shields looks like he’s just about locked up a roster spot on the Green Bay Packers. Pat Lee, a former second-round pick, looks like he’s in danger of getting cut. Shields served as the Packers nickel cornerback during Sunday’s practice. While some sources have suggested he could soon be taking […]

The End Of Jarrett Bush?

We’ve been waiting for it for three years, but the end of cornerback Jarrett Bush as a member of the Green Bay Packers appears to be getting closer. As we’ve documented many times, Bush is a liability on defense. What’s kept him on the team thus far is his play on special teams. A few […]

Packers Veterans Who May Be In Trouble

At the end of every summer, the Green Bay Packers end up cutting a couple veteran players whose release comes as a surprise. Last year, it was receiver Ruvell Martin and safety Anthony Smith. Here’s a list of several players who could potentially be on that list this year. Justin Harrell, defensive tackle — The […]

Al Harris Could Return Next Week

Brad Biggs is reporting that Green Bay Packers cornerback Al Harris could begin practicing next week. Harris has been on the PUP list since the beginning of training camp, while he continues to rehabilitate a torn ACL. According to a league source, Harris could be cleared to return to practice as soon as Monday. He’d […]

Rejoice! Jarrett Bush Will Not Be Your Nickel Back!

The bane of my personal existence as a Green Bay Packers fan over the past three seasons may finally be getting what every sane person who’s ever seen a football game thinks he deserves: a pink slip. I mean, let’s face it. Jarrett Bush is the worst cornerback in the history of history and yet […]

Packers Depth Chart: That’s Interesting, Man

The Sporting News released their pre-training camp preview for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday and our initial reaction was, to borrow a line from The Dude, that’s interesting, man. The depth chart wasn’t interesting so much for the starting lineups, but more surprising on some of the second-string players. First, it’s important to point […]

Williams, Bigby Remain Unsigned

Green Bay Packers’ cornerback Tramon Williams and safety Atari Bigby did not sign their restricted free agent tenders by today’s 12 a.m. ET deadline. The Packers gave both players, as well as defensive end Johnny Jolly, written notice of the deadline. The team told all three players they would reduce their tenders to 110 percent […]

Brandon Underwood Making The Biggest Second-Year Jump

It’s only OTAs, but Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy made an interesting comment today just after I was done questioning the team’s cornerbacks. McCarthy told reporters cornerback Brandon Underwood, a sixth-round pick out of Cincinnati in 2009, has made the biggest jump from year one to year two. Now, we don’t want to read […]

Should The Packers Be Preparing For Shootouts?

Much has been made of the games the Green Bay Packers lost to the Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers, as well as the playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals, last season. The main culprit in those losses was the Packers’ pass coverage, or lack thereof. The Packers could have improved the area in the offseason […]

Blackmon Moved To Safety, Clearing The Way For More Jarrett Bush

The Green Bay Packers love them some Jarrett Bush. And what’s not to love? It’s like inserting your favorite slapstick comedy right into an NFL game! Jarrett Bush is the Lt. Frank Drebin of the Green Bay Packers. Despite bungling just about everything imaginable, he still manages to live and catch the bad guy, or […]

Atari Bigby May Hold Out

Green Bay Packers’ safety Atari Bigby, one of the team’s three unsigned restricted free agents, appears to be the most likely to hold out, according to Greg Bedard, via Cheesehead TV. Two sources said he had designs on staying away to get a contract extension, perhaps even into training camp after signing his tender. But […]

Packers’ 2010 Preseason Schedule Released

Peyton Manning

The Green Bay Packers’ 2010 preseason schedule has been released and it is highlighted by a nationally televised contest with the defending AFC Champion Indianapolis Colts. Specific dates and times have not been announced, with the exception of the Colts’ game, but the Packers’ preseason schedule shapes up as follows. Aug. 12-16 – Cleveland Browns […]

What Is Packers’ Biggest Need?

The Green Bay Packers have several glaring holes this offseason – offensive line, cornerback and safety among them – but I’ve been wavering as to which is the most troublesome. Offensive tackle is the obvious answer, but the cornerback position is an increasing concern on par with, if not greater than, the tackle position. The […]

Chargers’ Cromartie To Packers: Only If Price Is Right

Antonio Cromartie

The San Diego Chargers need a running back. LaDanian Tomlinson, who will turn 31 in June, is likely to be released by the team after gaining only 730 yards and averaging 3.3 yards per carry in 2009. His backup, Darren Sproles, will be a restricted free agent. The Chargers could re-sign Sproles, but after paying […]

Packers Have Some Work To Do In the Middle

Early Doucet

The Green Bay Packers defense was exposed by the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The NFL’s second-ranked unit fell apart against the vaunted Cardinals passing attack, much the same way they did three weeks earlier against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s now pretty clear why these things have happened. The middle of the Packers defense if vulnerable […]

Injuries Could Play Major Factor In Cardinals, Packers Rematch

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

The Arizona Cardinals suffered three key injuries during their 33-7 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Wide receiver Anquan Boldin, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and defensive end Calais Campbell all left the contest and are in varying degrees of disrepair heading into the teams’ wild card matchup. Boldin, who recorded 84 receptions for 1,024 […]
