Both of the Green Bay Packers starting cornerbacks, Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams, made ESPN’s cornerback power rankings list. Woodson finished third and Williams finished seventh. Not surprisingly, the top two in the rankings were the New York Jets’ Darrelle Revis and the Oakland Raiders’ Nnamdi Asomugha, who received all the first and second place votes.
We talked about it for much of the season — Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams has developed into one of the league’s best cover corners. Now, the hardcore football geek statistics have validated the statement. Williams appears near the top of Football Outsiders cornerback charting stats for 2010.
The good news is this. Suspended Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly is working out. The bad news is, he’s not any smarter than he used to be. Jolly is working out in Houston with former Oakland Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell. That’s right, arguably the biggest draft bust of all time.
Despite rampant speculation that one or more of the Green Bay Packers defensive assistant coaches would get a defensive coordinator position with another team this offseason, the team’s defensive staff will remain as it was in 2010. The Oakland Raiders, who had the lone remaining opening at defensive coordinator, have filled the position with Chuck Bresnahan, […]
The Oakland Raiders remain the only NFL team with a defensive coordinator opening and, for whatever reason, they’re in no hurry to fill it.
When head coach Hue Jackson does get around to interviewing candidates, Green Bay Packers assistant head coach Winston Moss and safeties coach Darren Perry figure to get a shot.
Personally, I thought we made it pretty clear. Soon-to-be-former Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha isn’t likely to sign with the Green Bay Packers, even though he’s expressed an interest in rejoining former teammate Charles Woodson.
Sure, it’s a wonderful thought, pairing Asomugha with Tramon Williams and moving Woodson to free safety. Asomugha, Williams, Woodson and Nick Collins — three All Pros and one in the making.
The names of several Green Bay Packers defensive coaches have been flying around as candidates for the various defensive coordinator openings around the league, but it’s now looking less likely the Packers staff will be purged. On Wednesday, the Philadelphia Eagles, one of the four teams with an opening, hired Juan Castillo, their own offensive […]
Green Bay Packers defensive line coach Mike Trgovac says he’s staying in Green Bay. Trgovac’s name has been mentioned in connection with the open defensive coordinator positions, which are Philadelphia, Arizona and Oakland. Tennessee will also have to hire a defensive coordinator after the team canned head coach Jeff Fisher, last week. Trgovac apparently isn’t […]
Perhaps lost in the hype surrounding the Green Bay Packers’ matchup with the Chicago Bears for the NFC Championship is this important nugget — Packers defensive coordinator isn’t going anywhere. There was talk towards the end of the season Capers should be and could be considered for an NFL head coaching job because of the […]
We didn’t pay much attention to the fact Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha became a free agent after his contract voided, earlier this week. The Green Bay Packers already have two Pro Bowl-caliber cornerbacks in Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams. They don’t really need another. However, there are reports Asomugha is interested in playing for […]
We’re biased, but we obviously think the best rivalry in the NFL is the Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings. Frankly, I wouldn’t piss on a Vikings fan if he were on fire and I felt that way even before a long-time hero decided he needed to stab an entire fan base in the back. […]
PETA has released their annual list of the most vegetarian-friendly stadiums in the NFL and Lambeau Field is ranked third. Lambeau ranked third last season, as well, which we’ve always found strange, considering it’s located dead center in the land of bratwurst, deer hunting, beer swilling and heart attacks. However, Lambeau offers a variety of […]
This comes as a bit of a surprise, but the Green Bay Packers and cornerback Charles Woodson are reportedly discussing a new contract. I say it’s a bit of a surprise because, although Woodson is coming off perhaps his finest season, he’ll be 34 this year and still has three years left on his current […]
Green Bay Packers’ second-year cornerback Brandon Underwood is the player under investigation for a sexual assault that allegedly took place in Lake Delton this weekend, the Journal Sentinel reports. The alleged incident took place Saturday morning during a party at the Wilderness Resort Golf Cabins, after Clay Matthews hosted The McGovern Charity Golf Tournament in […]
When talk turns to the biggest busts of all time in the NFL Draft, the name Tony Mandarich always comes up. The Green Bay Packers drafted Mandarich second overall in the 1989 draft, choosing him ahead of such all-time greats as Barry Sanders, Derrick Thomas and Deion Sanders. While those three guys went on to […]
Make no mistake about it, the Green Bay Packers are in the cornerback market. Al Harris is rehabilitating a major knee injury and behind Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams, who ended the season as the starters, the Packers are thin. There has been speculation the Packers might be interested in acquiring San Diego’s Antonio Cromartie, […]
The Green Bay Packers are certainly in the market for tackles this offseason. Both 2009 starters, Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher, are free agents. While the Packers may re-sign them simply because they don’t want to rely on two young and unproven tackles, both are at the end of the road and need to be […]
