Packers Do What They’re Supposed To With The Bills

Clay Matthews

I’d like to say we learned a lot about the Green Bay Packers after they defeated the Buffalo Bills 34-7 on Sunday, but I can’t. The Packers let the Bills hang around in the first half, but ultimately did exactly what they were supposed to do — dominate one of the worst teams in the […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Bills

Steffen: The Vegas oddsmakers have the Green Bay Packers favored by how much again? 13.5 points?  There are plenty of folks out there who’d tell you that isn’t nearly enough. Don’t count me among them. Like last week, this game will be much closer than it needs to be. Obviously, the biggest question mark for […]

Grant’s Injury Isn’t The End Of The Line

The Green Bay Packers aren’t as strong as they were now that running back Ryan Grant has been put on injured reserve, but it isn’t time to throw in the towel just yet. Grant may not have run for 1,200 yards in each of the past two season by accident, but the Packers have always […]

Ryan Grant Out For The Year

Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant is out for the season and will go on injured reserve after tearing two ligaments in his ankle during the Packers victory over the Philadelphia Eagles — a story first reported by Jay Glazer. The injury will require surgery and Grant is expected to be on crutches for […]

Ryan Grant Could Be Out Several Weeks

Ryan Grant

We don’t have a definitive answer yet, but Green Bay Packers starting running back Ryan Grant looks like he’ll be out several weeks with an ankle injury coach Mike McCarthy called significant. Grant, who termed his status as week-to-week, has already been ruled out of the Packers next game against Buffalo. Brandon Jackson will start […]

Packers Not Exactly Dominant In Season-Opening Win

Kevin Kolb

Maybe it’s time to table the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl talk for a bit. The defense, led by linebacker Clay Matthews, was the biggest reason the Packers were able to escape Philadelphia with a 27-20 win over the Eagles. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense wasn’t close to firing on all cylinders, but […]

Packers’ Road To 53

The Green Bay Packers had to release 22 players today to get to the 53-man roster limit. Perhaps the biggest surprise among those players is safety and return man Will Blackmon. Blackmon has been injured for much of training camp and that certainly didn’t help his chances of making the roster, but he was considered […]

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 […]

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 […]

Training Camp Observations — August 17

Mike Neal

The following is a look at Green Bay Packers training camp on Tuesday, August 17. The Green Bay Packers third running back is….. With Kregg Lumpkin and rookie James Starks both injured, it’s a little unclear who is going to step up and take the third running back spot on the team. Now that Brian […]

A Look At The Packers Depth Chart

The Green Bay Packers have released their first depth chart, which gives us a good idea of who is and who isn’t performing well. It also sheds some light on who is playing where. On the offensive side of the ball there aren’t any big surprises. Most notable is that Donald Lee has regained the […]

Training Camp Observations, August 3, Evening, Full Pads

The weather man was wrong. It’s sunny and 85 degrees about an hour before practice. Quick observations: – There is a lot of talk here in Green Bay on the Brett Favre retirement. My thoughts — he stays retired until September 9th when, while mowing the lawn, he decides to drive the lawnmower to the […]

Jason Spitz Signs His Tender

Jason Spitz

The news isn’t earth-shattering, but Green Bay Packers’ offensive lineman and restricted free agent Jason Spitz has signed his tender and reported for the team’s offseason program. The deal will pay him $1.76 million for the 2010 season. Spitz will compete with Daryn Colledge – also a restricted free agent – for the starting left […]

The Inside Dirt on the Packers Restricted Free Agents

Nick Collins

The Green Bay Packers have submitted tenders to nine restricted free agents. The team hasn’t announced at what level they’ve tendered them, but some information has surfaced in the past 24 hours. Here’s a summary. Nick Collins – The Packers starting free safety received the highest possible tender, which is a 10 percent increase on […]

Packers Top Free Agent Priority: Ryan Pickett

Ryan Pickett

Some interesting tidbits have come out about the Green Bay Packers free agent priorities in the past week. Although he’s clearly their top player without a contract for the 2010 season, safety Nick Collins is not at the top of the Packers’ list of players to resign. The main reason is Collins will be a […]

Ranking The Green Bay Packers’ Free Agents

Nick Collins

The Green Bay Packers have 18 players in their contract year after Monday’s resigning of linebacker Brandon Chillar. However, the situation isn’t as dire as it may look. The collective bargaining agreement – the agreement between the owners and player’s association that dictates the rules of the salary cap, free agency, guaranteed spending, rookie salaries, […]

Offense Dominant, But Win Is Costly For Packers

Aaron Rodgers was the man.

It only took 10 games, but the Green Bay Packers’ offense on Sunday finally looked like it did in the preseason – dominant. Aaron Rodgers threw for 344 yards and two scores while Ryan Grant added 129 yards rushing and a touchdown of his own as the Packers beat the San Francisco 49ers 30-24, improving […]

Packers Getting Healthy, Stronger

The Green Bay Packers will enter this week’s game with the San Francisco 49ers the healthiest they’ve been since early in the season. The team was buoyed this past week by the return of receiver Jordy Nelson, who had been out since week four. Expected to return from injury this week are linebackers Aaron Kampman […]

Hi. Im here to save Mike McCarthys job.

With training camp beginning at the end of the month, I am starting to get excited for the upcoming Green Bay Packers season. Since we’re in the down time between the Packers mini-camp and training camp, I figured now is as good a time as any to get you excited too. There are some very […]
