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 […]

Packers Not Impressive In Win Over Lions

Shaun Hill

The Green Bay Packers got a win on Sunday, but their 28-26 victory over the Detroit Lions left a lot to be desired. The 0-4 Lions racked up more than 400 yards of offense in Lambeau Field and quarterback Shaun Hill threw for 331 yards and two touchdowns, largely on the strength of short passes […]

Packers Offense Could Join A Select Few

The Green Bay Packers offense looks like a juggernaut going into the 2010 season. The possibilities of this season got me thinking about some of the greatest individual seasons by teammates in NFL history. The Packers had two 1,000-yard receivers, a 1,000-yard rusher and a 4,000-yard passer in 2009. Those numbers came courtesy of Greg […]

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 […]

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 19

Morgan Burnett

The following is from Green Bay Packers training camp on Aug. 19. Moving Bulaga around In an interesting development on the offensive line, rookie Bryan Bulaga, who was spending most of his time at left guard, was moved back to starting left tackle for the morning practice with veteran Chad Clifton resting. Bulaga has been […]

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 […]

Return Game Outlook: Hazy

Will Blackmon

Green Bay Packers training camp is pretty boring if you’re looking for real competition. The biggest and closest competition is at punter and the only real positional battle, at least for a starting spot, looks to be between Brandon Chillar and Brad Jones for the left outside linebacker spot. Not terribly exciting stuff. So, if […]

Training Camp Observations, Aug 5, Full Pads

Atari Bigby and Morgan Burnett

Here’s a quick look at Green Bay Packers training camp from Aug. 5. Breno Giacomini running with the No. 2 offense Maybe this is due in part to T.J. Lang being a little banged up, but Breno Giacomini has been lining up with the second-string offense at right tackle and even lined up with first […]

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 […]

Training Camp Observations, Aug. 3, Morning Shells

Nick Collins

I’m here at the early practice once again. It’s 70 degrees, overcast, and very humid. Quick observations: Team drills – Brandon Chillar gets the nod at OLB with Brad Jones still out. – Looks like we’ll have a long portion of team drills. Not much to report during those. Game situation, offense vs defense – […]

Jordy Nelson’s Time Is Now

Jordy Nelson hasn’t exactly set the world on fire since the Green Bay Packers made him their first selection (second round) in the 2008 draft. He’s shown flashes of potential. He’s shown his blazing speed. He hasn’t developed into a top-of-the-line NFL receiver. That shouldn’t necessarily come as a surprise, considering Nelson is sitting behind […]

Ted Ginn Could Power The Packers’ Return Game

Ted Ginn Jr.

The Miami Dolphins’ acquisition of receiver Brandon Marshall from the Denver Broncos has several ramifications, but the one most interesting to the Green Bay Packers is Dolphins’ receiver/return man Ted Ginn Jr. has now been labeled the odd man out in Miami. Let’s get this out of the way first. Ted Thompson is about as […]

Four Year-One Starting Caliber Tackles in 2010 NFL Draft

Bryan Bulaga

The Green Bay Packers are certainly in the market for tackles this offseason. Both 2009 starters, Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher, are free agents. While the Packers may re-sign them simply because they don’t want to rely on two young and unproven tackles, both are at the end of the road and need to be […]

Jermichael! Jermichael! Jermichael!

There’s a case of the Jan Bradys going around the Green Bay Packers’ locker room. Playing the role of Marcia – tight end Jermichael Finley. The Journal Sentinel’s Tom Silverstein raised some eyebrows Friday with his story on what’s becoming known as “the Jermichael Finley question” in blogging circles. Namely, are Packers coaches focusing the […]
