Packers Get Four Compensatory Picks

Ted Thompson

The Green Bay Packers were awarded four compensatory picks in the 2012 NFL draft. Here’s a look at the additional picks and how it might affect the rest of their plan.

Jackson, Spitz Moving On

Brandon Jackson

The Green Bay Packers lost running back Brandon Jackson and offensive lineman Jason Spitz to other teams, but their replacements are already on the team.

Packers Free Agents: Who Will Return

Mason Crosby

Now that we know who the Green Bay Packers unrestricted free agents will be, we can tell you who’s likely to be back and who isn’t. For several players, the writing is on the wall — they’ve played their last game with the Packers. Here’s a look at who’s likely coming back and who’s likely […]

Lockout Could Be Over Soon: The Details

Roger Goodell

A new collective bargaining agreement could be coming soon, which means the godforsaken lockout, court cases and he said/she said bullshit that has been this NFL offseason might finally be over. Commissioner Roger Goodell presented the details of the proposed labor agreement to the owners on Tuesday. Although no vote was taken, the details make […]

Statistical Analysis Of Ted Thompson’s Drafts

Ted Thompson

The only thing that’s certain when Ted Thompson is at the helm of the Green Bay Packers draft is uncertainty. Thompson is rarely predictable, but looking at the statistics, some patterns do emerge. For example, Thompson likes drafting wide receivers. In his six drafts as general manager, Thompson has chosen eight receivers, the most of […]

Packers Must Know Something Top Secret About Free Agency

Daryn Colledge

The Green Bay Packers are made some strange moves on Wednesday, when they tendered free-agents-to-be guard Daryn Colledge, kicker Mason Crosby and fullback John Kuhn.

Colledge and Crosby received second-round tenders and Kuhn received the lowest tender.

Here’s why all none of this makes any sense.

Jenkins Should Be Next In Line For A New Contract

Cullen Jenkins

With Desmond Bishop receiving a contact extension, defensive end Cullen Jenkins should be the top priority for the Green Bay Packers. The Packers have several key players who are scheduled to be free agents under the current system, which is expected to be extended at some point. In addition to Jenkins, they include fullbacks John […]

Lang Will Go If Colledge Can’t; Spitz Looks Finished

T.J. Lang

The Green Bay Packers don’t seem overly concerned about left guard Daryn Colledge’s knee injury, but if he’s unable to play this weekend, T.J. Lang would start in his place. Lang has played his way into the backup job at both tackle positions, but wasn’t previously the primary backup at left guard. That was Jason […]

Lang, McDonald Could Be Future Starters On Offensive Line

After the Green Bay Packers’ loss to the Atlanta Falcons, we were quick to point out the offensive line’s ineffectual run blocking. It was pretty clear after the loss that everyone not named Josh Sitton was struggling in the running game and the stats backed it up. The Packers showed improvement against an inferior opponent […]

Spitz Looks Most Likely To Be Traded

Jason Spitz

It’s all going to come down to the offer, but several teams have reportedly inquired about the availability of Green Bay Packers guard/center Jason Spitz. Spitz has started 45 games for the Packers and has done so at both guard positions and center. He remains a valuable backup for the Packers, but teams like Oakland, […]

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 […]

Observations From Packers 59-24 Victory Over Colts

Peyton Manning

The Green Bay Packers offense is potent, we knew that, but in their longest outing of the preseason against last year’s AFC champs, they put any doubts to rest. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who I have a hard time believing isn’t on his way to becoming the best player in the NFL, cut up the Colts […]

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 […]

Packers Throw Bulaga In Mix At Left Guard

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is nothing if not consistent. Every year, he speaks of the importance of continuity along the offensive line and then shuffles guys all over the place once training camp starts in order to assure there will be no continuity. True to form, the Packers moved first-round draft choice Bryan […]

Colledge Has Inside Track At Left Guard

Daryn Colledge

Despite his terrible 2009 season, Green Bay Packers left guard Daryn Colledge appears to have the inside track on the left guard spot he was supposed to compete with Jason Spitz for. As much as anything, the situation seems to be a symptom of the coaching staff shuffling Spitz between multiple positions, which is something […]

Atari Bigby vs. Morgan Burnett

Atari Bigby Morgan Burnett

When training camp opens, the Green Bay Packers will have few spots in the starting lineup up for grabs. The only totally open competition is at left guard, where Daryn Colledge will battle Jason Spitz for the starting job. There are other positions that may turn into competitions, however. T.J. Lang and Mark Tauscher may […]

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 […]

Looking At The Packers As Preseason Favorite

Brad Jones

You hear a lot more about the idea in the national media than you do in the local media, that of the Green Bay Packers as a preseason favorite. Peter King ranked the Packers atop his preseason power rankings. Pro Football Weekly and Yahoo! Sports will declare the Packers their Super Bowl favorite in their […]

Newhouse Could Spell The End For Colledge Or Spitz

Marshall Newhouse

I can’t say I was overly impressed with the selection of TCU’s Marshall Newhouse, who the Green Bay Packers selected with their second fifth-round pick in this year’s NFL Draft. Newhouse played left tackle in college, but projects as a guard in the NFL. With Josh Sitton entrenched at right guard, Jason Spitz and Daryn […]

A Look At Bryan Bulaga’s Packers’ Future

Bryan Bulaga

As we sit around and wait for the second part of the NFL Draft to begin tonight, we thought it would be a good time to take a more in-depth look at the Green Bay Packers’ first-round selection, Bryan Bulaga. As I mentioned yesterday, Bulaga isn’t the elite-level tackle prospect that Trent Williams, who went […]
