Veteran Packers Who Should Be Worried

Preparing For Finley’s Departure? Pack May Add Another Tight End

Jermichael Finley

We all kind of scratched our collective heads when the Green Bay Packers drafted tight end Andrew Quarless in last year’s draft.

Barnett And Finley’s Whining Pays Off

Green Bay Packers Nick Barnett and Jermichael Finley took issue with the fact the team wasn’t going to include the players on injured reserve in the team’s Super Bowl photo.

It’s Time Aaron Rodgers Entered The MVP Conversation

Aaron Rodgers

It would be a lot easier to make this argument if the Green Bay Packers had beaten the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, but it’s nonetheless time Aaron Rodgers entered the MVP conversation. Rodgers has been nothing short of spectacular over the Packers’ last three games. In fact, he’s carried a Packers offense that has little-to-no […]

Jennings’ Increased Production Directly Related To Finley’s Demise

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.

Finley May Be Done For The Year, Martin Is

The hits just keep coming for the Green Bay Packers and not in a good way.

Packers’ Stars May Play Sunday
