Shawn Neuser breaks down the tape from the Green Bay Packers preseason loss to the Cleveland Browns. Here’s what it said about the left guard competition, Morgan Burnett and the defensive line, among other things.

Competition At Safety Was Over Before It Began

Morgan Burnett

The idea that Morgan Burnett and Charlie Peprah were in a competition for the starting strong safety job has been floated. The Green Bay Packers apparently didn’t get the memo.

Jordy Nelson

The Green Bay Packers offense is finally clicking and the stars are playing like they’re supposed to be. Tramon Williams, Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson have all been impressive and Morgan Burnett may be back with the first team.

The Green Bay Packers strapped on the pads and went full contact for the first time Monday night. Rookie Derek Sherrod was hit and miss at left guard, B.J. Raji looks dominant and the quarterbacks are still trying to find their rhythm.

Goodbye, Atari Bigby

Atari Bigby

Buried at the bottom of an article in which Bob McGinn tries his best to create a not-enough-balls controversy amongst the Green Bay Packers receivers was this nugget: safety Atari Bigby won’t be back.

No, no one’s said those exact words. No, it isn’t a surprise the Packers would choose younger players to replace an oft-injured veteran who’s about to hit free agency.

And Here Comes Atari Bigby’s Next Injury Problem

Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby has aggravated the hamstring injury that landed him on the physically unable to perform list, which perfectly follows his pattern. By most accounts, Bigby is a decent safety, when he can stay on the field. Unfortunately, he can’t stay on the field very often. In addition to missing the […]

Peprah, Bigby Will Split Snaps

Charlie Peprah will remain the Green Bay Packers starting strong safety, but it appears it’s only a title. Despite playing some outstanding football of late, that apparently isn’t enough to keep Atari Bigby, who saw his first action of the season against the Dallas Cowboys, off the field. Nope. The Packers have come up with […]

Packers Activate Bigby

The Green Bay Packers have activated safety Atari Bigby from the physically unable to perform list. Cornerback Al Harris and running back James Starks were not activated. The team has until Tuesday to either activate them, place them on injured reserve or cut them. The Packers had an open roster spot, so they did not […]

Young And Unproven Players Are Now Part Of Packers’ Success

As the Green Bay Packers’ injuries began to pile up, quite a few people thought the wheels were about to fall off. The Packers currently have 10 players on injured reserve, five of which are starters, eight of which play defense. While Ryan Grant and the Packers lack of a certifiable running game was the […]

Packers Bring Back Anthony Smith

The Green Bay Packers traded a conditional seventh-round pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars for safety Anthony Smith, on Sunday. This will be Smith’s second tour with the Packers. The team signed him as a free agent prior to last season, but he was among the final roster cuts. Smith has started three games for Jacksonville […]

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 […]

Finley Out 3-6 Weeks; Barnett To Have Surgery

The good news for the Green Bay Packers is tight end Jermichael Finley’s injury isn’t season ending. The bad news is he’ll need surgery and will miss three to six weeks. Finley tore his meniscus early in the Packers loss to the Washington Redskins, on Sunday. Meanwhile, linebacker Nick Barnett will have surgery on his […]

Injury Replacements: Who To Be Worried About

If you haven’t heard that the Green Bay Packers have a shitload of injuries, well… then get the hell out of here. The Packers will be down four week one starters against the Redskins this week — five, if you count linebacker Brandon Chillar and six, if you count cornerback Sam Shields. Those players are […]

The Hits Keep Coming: Tauscher Injury Could Be Serious

We may all look back at the end of the season and note the Green Bay Packers week four game with the Detroit Lions as the point where it all went to shit. The Packers have lost one starter for the season, safety Morgan Burnett. They are on the verge of losing another in linebacker […]

Simpkins Signed, Burnett To IR

The Green Bay Packers officially put injured safety Morgan Burnett on injured reserve today and they signed linebacker Maurice Simpkins off the practice squad to take his roster spot. Simpkins is a first-year player out of Coastal Carolina who came to the Packers from the Green Bay Blizzard of the Indoor Football League. He was […]

Nick Collins “Not Optimistic” About Knee

Add safety Nick Collins to the Green Bay Packers growing list of injury concerns. Collins missed Wednesday’s practice with a knee strain and said he’s not optimistic about playing against the Redskins on Sunday, according to Kareem Copeland. “I’m doing the best I can to get ready for Sunday,” Collins said. “Just trying to strengthen […]
