It’s the last night practice of training camp. The Green Bay Packers decided to throw all the tourists off and change the schedule for the rest of the practices. They’ll now start at 11:15 a.m. Under pressure I know some of this could be attributed to [intlink id="305" type="category"]Dom Capers[/intlink]‘ defense, but the offense was […]
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 […]
Although the Green Bay Packers have given every indication they plan to re-sign kicker Mason Crosby, who will be a free agent when the lockout ends, things don’t always go according to plan. It’s conceivable, although probably not likely, another team will do something to pry Crosby away from the Packers. In that scenario, the team may be forced to turn to a familiar face — former kicker Ryan Longwell.
While several NFL teams have been slapping the franchise tag on their players, the Green Bay Packers won’t be using theirs.
There was speculation the Packers might use the tag on defensive end Cullen Jenkins or kicker Mason Crosby, both pending free agents, but Ted Thompson obviously thought the cost was too great.
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 […]
There’s a headline you probably never thought you’d see, but it isn’t a mistake. As we pointed out in our post-game analysis, punter Tim Masthay had a killer game in the Green Bay Packers 9-0 defeat of the New York Jets. At the time, we called him the game MVP. Today, there’s word Masthay will […]
Another week, another player of the week award for the Green Bay Packers. Cornerback Charles Woodson captured the NFC’s Defensive Player of the Week award, an award he won twice last season, for his play against Detroit. Woodson recorded 14 tackles and returned an interception for a touchdown against the Lions in his best game […]
The Green Bay Packers look like a poorly-coached football team again, but forget about the team-record penalties and the special teams breakdowns for a second. The Packers may have had a chance to win or tie the Chicago Bears on Monday night if it weren’t for what I would term two terrible coaching decisions by […]
For the second week in a row, a member of the Green Bay Packers has nabbed an NFC player of the week honor. This time, linebacker Clay Matthews won the defensive award. Kicker Mason Crosby won the special teams award following week one. Matthews had three sacks and five tackles against the Buffalo Bills in […]
