Packers Escape Detroit With Win

Randall Cobb is boss!

The Green Bay Packers pulled out a 24-20 win over the Detroit Lions to improve to 7-3. The offense wasn’t pretty and neither was Mason Crosby, but the defense stepped up.

from AdvancedNFLStats.com

The Green Bay Packers used the surprise onside kick successfully against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, the third time in recent history they’ve done so. Coach Mike McCarthy is turning the onside kick into a weapon. Here’s why it’s smart.

Here’s a look at the Green Bay Packers final practice of training camp and our projected final roster. Here’s a look at who will make it and who won’t.

T.J. Lang

We’re back at Green Bay Packers training camp, where Jermichael Finley and Jordy Nelson are killing it, several injured players have returned to action and Vic So’oto has made a move up the depth chart.

Training Camp Observations 8-11, Full Pads

Dom Capers

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 […]

Packers Give Crosby Five-Year Deal

Mason Crosby

The Green Bay Packers have re-signed kicker Mason Crosby to a five-year deal that makes him one of the league’s top-paid kickers. All that for a guy who’s never hit 80 percent of his field goals in a season.

Packers Have Salary Cap Problems

Mark Tauscher

Once the new collective bargaining agreement is finished, the salary cap will return to the NFL and 2011’s cap will be lower than 2009’s. The cap is projected to be as high as $121 million, but could be as low as $117 million. The 2009 cap was $122 million. If the 2011 cap is $120 […]

Now that we know who the Green Bay Packers unrestricted free agents will be, we can tell you who’s likely to be back and who isn’t. For several players, the writing is on the wall — they’ve played their last game with the Packers. Here’s a look at who’s likely coming back and who’s likely […]

Lockout Could Be Over Soon: The Details

Roger Goodell

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 […]

Mason Crosby vs. Ryan Longwell

Ryan Longwell

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.

Packers Must Know Something Top Secret About Free Agency

Daryn Colledge

The Green Bay Packers are made some strange moves on Wednesday, when they tendered free-agents-to-be guard Daryn Colledge, kicker Mason Crosby and fullback John Kuhn.

Here’s why all none of this makes any sense.

Packers Won’t Franchise Anyone

Cullen Jenkins

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.

Jenkins Should Be Next In Line For A New Contract

Cullen Jenkins

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 […]

Masthay NFC Special Teams Player Of The Week

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 […]
