Where Are the Packers Linebackers?

So far this season, trying to find one of the Packers linebackers in the middle of a play is like trying to locate Waldo in a picture with a thousand guys who are wearing red and white striped shirts and hats. The Green Bay Packers came into the season with what looked like one of […]

Packers Shape Up, But It’s Only the Rams

The Green Bay Packers got a much needed win on Sunday, and the team looked better than it did the previous week against the Cincinnati Bengals. However, it should be pointed out that the St. Louis Rams are one of the worst teams in football. Still, a win is a win, and although the game […]

Nick Barnett Is Frustrated, And So Are We

Evan Siegle, Green Bay Press-Gazette

You might have heard that Green Bay Packers’ linebacker Nick Barnett quit Twitter this week, after what some might consider an online meltdown. Barnett first stated his displeasure with the rotation at linebacker – one that on the inside includes himself, A.J. Hawk, Brandon Chillar and presumably, Desmond Bishop. This was the actual tweet, misspellings […]

Bengals 31, Packers 24 – Observations and Opinions

Chad Ochocinco Lambeau Leap

To quote The Jeffrey Lebwoski, the plan has crashed into the mountain. More painfully one sided than the close score suggests, yesterday’s Green Bay Packers’ 31-24 defeat to the lowly Cincinnati Bengals exposed more weaknesses and vulnerabilities for the Packers. The Packers’ offensive line play was even shakier than last week and aside from a […]

Top 10 Green Bay Packers Stats We Wished They Kept

top 10

It’s our first (and who knows, maybe last) Green Bay Packers’ Top 10 List – Top 10 Green Bay Packers’ Stats We Wished They Kept. 10. Times Aaron Rodgers has been asked about Brett Favre. 9. Games in which Mike McCarthy didn’t have a pen or pencil stuck in his hat. 8. Messages Reggie White received […]

The Packers Defensive Resurgence Begins On The Line And A Few Other Notes

No, it wasn’t lost on us. We pointed out how well the Green Bay Packers defense played in week one both during the game and in the aftermath. That, however, has been somewhat lost in the blather surrounding the terrible performance of the Packers offensive line. It should be noted, though, both Cullen Jenkins and […]

Packers’ Preseason Finale and What It Meant

The Green Bay Packers went into Nashville last night and largely stunk up the joint, getting drubbed by the Tennessee Titans, 27-13. The No. 1 offense played only one series, and the No. 1 defense did about the same, although linebackers Nick Barnett, Clay Matthews and Jeremy Thompson – all of whom saw their first […]

Atari Bigby Has Competition, A.J. Hawk’s Role Diminishing

In what looks to be the one true battle remaining in training camp, the Green Bay Packers seem undecided on who to start at safety opposite Nick Collins. Atari Bigby, who is coming off major offseason ankle surgery, was projected to be that guy. However, free agent signee Anthony Smith has outplayed Bigby in almost […]

Packers Training Camp Battles – Inside Linebacker

As the Green Bay Packers training camp begins to heat up, it’s becoming more apparent where the interesting positional battles are going to take place, and in some cases, they aren’t where we thought they would take place. Since the Packers have put their pads on, some players who performed well in OTAs have fallen […]

Packers OTAs: Fashion Statement Edition

Here’s a little video from the Green Bay Packers OTAs, courtesy of our friends at Cheesehead TV. The following is what can be gleaned from said video: 1. Nick Barnett hasn’t had a haircut since last season. Cornrows are imminent. 2. Sweat pants, which I thought had been discontinued, are in for offensive lineman and […]

The Packers’ Linebacker Brouhaha

Much is being made of the Green Bay Packers linebacker situation this offseason. The transition to the 3-4 defense of Dom Capers has forced several Packers’ players to make position changes, and it has left the two outside linebacker spots up for grabs in training camp. Although I would hardly suggest the Packers are set […]

Free Agency 2009: Week 2 Update

Let’s hope our new safety has learned his lesson. It’s true. After the wild and wacky first weekend of free agency and all the money that was thrown around, I needed a break. Besides that, after the first weekend, there wasn’t a lot of movement. As we chronicled, the Packers lost out on Chris Canty […]

Packers ‘Bearly’ Sneak by Chicago 37-3

Donald Lee is number 1.

Coming off two heartbreakingly close losses in a row, the Green Bay Packers desperately needed a win on Sunday to keep their division championship hopes alive. The Chicago Bears gave the Packers everything they had for the first two minutes or so, but in the end, Green Bay emerged from the hard fought game as […]

Packers vs. Bucanneers Quick Hits

I’m not ready to jump onto the “Fire Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy” bandwagon just yet, but man, oh man are the Green Bay Packers in trouble. Yesterday’s 30-21 loss was not nearly as close as the final score indicated. Here are some quick observations on what went wrong (a lot) and what went right […]

Packers vs. Lions Quick Hits

Nick Collins and Greg Jennings

As much as I hate to be a wet blanket, Green Bay Packers’ fans should not start chanting “Su-per-Bowl” just yet. Even though Aaron Rodgers continues to impress and the Packers came up with big play after big play, there is plenty of room to improve. The final score, as they say, doesn’t indicate how […]
