Packers Will Add Several Sixth Rounders, And Other Fun Stats

One thing you can bet on when you’re watching the Green Bay Packers’ draft unfold under the mastermind that is Ted Thompson, is that Thompson will come out with more picks than he went in with.

Packers Sign Nick Collins, Ryan Pickett

Ryan Pickett

By Green Bay Packers’ standards, the team has been active during free agency. They haven’t signed a player from another team, but they’ve now signed three of their own players after inking safety Nick Collins and nose tackle Ryan Pickett today. There are conflicting reports on Collins’ contract. Per Pete Dougherty, Collins received a four-year […]

Nick Collins Ready To Play Ball

Nick Collins

Unlike last year, when he didn’t participate in any of the Green Bay Packers’ OTAs because he wanted a new contract, safety Nick Collins has decided to take a different approach despite his status as a restricted free agent.

Bruce Campbell

There are all kinds of totally awesome stories coming out of the NFL scouting combine, so let’s get right to it. Maryland offensive tackle Bruce Campbell, who we suggested might be available when the Green Bay Packers pick at No. 23, is tearing it up. Campbell ran a 4.85 40-yard dash, which is pretty damn […]

Nick Collins May Hold Out

Nick Collins

All is quiet on the Nick Collins front and that isn’t good. The Green Bay Packers starting strong safety avoided offseason team activities last year because he was angry the Packers wouldn’t renegotiate his contract. Now, Collins is about to become a restricted free agent and there seems to be no movement on a new […]

Antrel Rolle Could Be on Packers Radar

Arizona Cardinals’ free safety Antrel Rolle is a name that’s probably on the Green Bay Packers radar. Why, you ask? Rolle is under contract with the Cardinals. Well, that contract isn’t going to fly in Arizona. Rolle is due $8 million in base salary and a $4 million roster bonus on March 5. Although Rolle […]

Ryan Pickett

Some interesting tidbits have come out about the Green Bay Packers free agent priorities in the past week.

Woodson Packers’ Lone All Pro

Charles Woodson

In news that should really surprise no one, cornerback Charles Woodson is the Green Bay Packers lone member of the NFL All-Pro team.

Packers Have Some Work To Do In the Middle

Early Doucet

The Green Bay Packers defense was exposed by the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The NFL’s second-ranked unit fell apart against the vaunted Cardinals passing attack, much the same way they did three weeks earlier against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s now pretty clear why these things have happened. The middle of the Packers defense if vulnerable […]

Ranking The Green Bay Packers’ Free Agents

Nick Collins

The Green Bay Packers have 18 players in their contract year after Monday’s resigning of linebacker Brandon Chillar. However, the situation isn’t as dire as it may look.

Five Reasons the Packers Will Beat the Vikings

Nick Barnett is among them

The Green Bay Packers are three-point favorites going into their contest with the Minnesota Vikings this weekend. Since the Packers are playing in Lambeau Field, that line simply means that the oddsmakers feel these two teams are evenly matched. Still, this season’s history says the Vikings are the better team. The Vikings are 6-1 to […]

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 […]

Injuries Will Play Huge Roll for Packers the Next Two Weeks

Daryn Colledge

Each year in the NFL, the most successful teams do one of two things — they either don’t have injuries, or they overcome injuries. That’s not to say that those successful teams don’t also have other things in common – they have positive turnover margins, they limit penalties, etc. But without fail, they do one […]

Packers Inexplicably Cut Aaron Rouse

I guess this is fighting fire with fire. If your team is dangerously thin at safety, what do you do? Cut one of your remaining safeties and sign one who has never played in your system, that’s what. At least if you’re Green Bay Packers’ general manager Ted Thompson. Look, I have been a Ted […]

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 […]

Nick Collins’ Disappearing Act and Upcoming Distractions

Nick Collins

As the Green Bay Packers open their first mandatory minicamp of the offseason today, the biggest question is whether safety Nick Collins will practice.
