Rodgers Puts On Clinic, Trounces Broncos

  Just when you thought Aaron Rodgers couldn’t get any better, he puts on a performance like he did Sunday that just blows your mind. Two rushing touchdowns. Four TD passes. More than 400 yards passing and, yes, one interception but that was more bad luck on his part than a bad decision. In short, […]

Josh Sitton Signs Contract Extension

Josh Sitton

Packers Backups Pull Out Win Over Colts

Ryan Taylor

The Green Bay Packers beat the Indianapolis Colts 24-21 in their third preseason game after some late heroics by quarterback Graham Harrell. Here’s the recap, who impressed and who didn’t.

Donald Driver Could Be Expendable

Donald Driver

Perhaps it’s heresy to suggest, but Donald Driver may be expendable. The Green Bay Packers have a big decision to make — keep a popular, but regressing veteran with a hefty salary or keep an impressive youngster like Chastin West?

Packers $12 Million Under Salary Cap; Here’s How They’ll Use It

Josh Sitton

The Green Bay Packers have more salary cap space than all but 11 other teams. Why didn’t they use it to sign any big-ticket free agents? They have three core players who are in line for contract extensions.

Training Camp Observations 8-9, Full Pads

Matt Flynn

We’re back with another look at Green Bay Packers training camp. With several veterans given the night off, the youngsters were given a chance to shine. Quarterbacks Matt Flynn and Graham Harrell stepped up, as did receiver Tori Gurley. Jarius Wynn outplayed Mike Neal, scuffles galore and more!

Training Camp Observations 8-4, Full Pads

Jordy Nelson

Donald Driver Says Donald Driver Will Be Starting This Year

Donald Driver

Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver isn’t about to hand over his starting spot to Jordy Nelson or anyone else, saying he’s earned it. The question is whether he can keep it in what are probably the final two years of his career.

Veteran Packers Who Should Be Worried

James Jones

The NFL Draft changes the face of every team’s roster and the Green Bay Packers are no exception, even though they’re the reigning Super Bowl champs. Several veterans will go into training camp to fight for a roster spot, while others will simply be let go during free agency. Here’s a look at which players […]

Packers Throw Out First Pitch, Brewers Immediately Sign Them

Packers first pitch

Twelve members of the world champion Green Bay Packers were on hand for the Milwaukee Brewers home opener Monday afternoon to throw out the first pitch… er, pitches. I’m only kidding about the Brewers signing anyone, but hell, none of the Packers have anything to do during the damn lockout and the Brewers supposedly vaunted […]

Shed A Tear With Jordy Nelson

Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson went to Kansas State. So did his wife. He’s probably a hero of some sort there, so it makes sense that he did a commercial for Kansas State Cars. Let me tell you, it’s a real tear-jerker. I can’t believe a man who still possesses a pair of balls between his legs would sign off on a script like this.

Jordy Nelson: Warrior

Jordy Nelson

There was word Green Bay Packers receiver Jordy Nelson suffered an injury during Super Bowl XLV, but the extent of it wasn’t reported.

Nelson suffered a bursa sac injury in his left knee — bursa sacs are filled with fluid and act as a gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues in the body (yeah, I looked that up).

James Jones Could Be In Demand In Free Agency

James Jones

Green Bay Packers receiver James Jones is likely to have some suitors once free agency begins, providing the new collective bargaining agreement allows him to become a free agent as expected.

Jones’ name has already been mentioned in Cleveland, where the Browns have one of the worst receiving corps in the league.

Sam Shields Is Packers Kick Returner… For Now

One of the more interesting developments to come out of the Green Bay Packers mauling of the Dallas Cowboys was cornerback Sam Shields taking over as the Packers kick returner. The team has been looking for a reliable kick returner all season. Receiver Jordy Nelson, who was given first crack at the job, had some […]

Will Blackmon Is Off The Market

Will Blackmon

After the Green Bay Packers gave Aaron Stecker a tryout two weeks ago, we speculated that the team might be interested in bringing return man/safety Will Blackmon back. They won’t get that opportunity. Blackmon, who was among the Packers’ final roster cuts, was signed by the New York Giants. Blackmon tore his ACL early in […]

Packers Passing Attack Faces Tough Test Against Jets

The New York Jets will have their best defender, cornerback Darrelle Revis, back at full strength for their match-up with the Green Bay Packers, this Sunday — something that isn’t good news for the team’s passing attack. The Jets are coming off a bye and Revis says he’s 100 percent for the first time since […]

Packers Looking At Options On Kick Returns; Where’s Will Blackmon?

The Green Bay Packers aren’t happy with their kick returners. Jordy Nelson is averaging a team-high 23.7 yards per return, but fumbled twice in the Packers’ victory over the Detroit Lions. He was temporarily replaced by Pat Lee against the Washington Redskins, but Lee managed only 16.5 yards on two returns. This week, the Packers […]
