Which Packers Will Show Up Out Of Shape?

Howard Green

An offseason with no one to watch over them is about to conclude. You can bet your ass some members of the Green Bay Packers will show up to training camp out of shape. Here are the odds-on favorites.

Packers Interested In Adding Another Fullback

Collin Mooney

If there’s one thing we know about Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson, it’s that he loves his fullbacks. Even though the Packers use more four- and five-wide receiver sets than anyone in the NFL, a time the fullback isn’t typically on the field, the Packers have carried three fullbacks on their roster since they drafted Quinn Johnson in the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft.

Market, Packers Restocked Offense May Mean Kuhn Doesn’t Return

John Kuhn

The Green Bay Packers appear to be willing to let fullback John Kuhn test the market in free agency.

Kuhn’s agent says the Packers haven’t been in touch about a new contract and Kuhn could be an attractive option to a team looking for a lead blocker and power runner.

Observations From Packers 17-13 Loss To Chiefs

Arrowhead Stadium

The Green Bay Packers fell to the Kansas City Chiefs 17-13, Thursday night in their preseason finale. The game wasn’t easy to watch. The starters played only one series and veterans Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Grant, Donald Driver, Chad Clifton and Charles Woodson were healthy scratches. There were some interesting developments in the game, however, and […]

Several Players Could Be Traded

Several members of the Green Bay Packers could be playing to impress other teams tonight. The Packers need to trim their roster by 22 players on Saturday, but it seems increasingly likely the team could make a trade. Some of the players who could potentially be on the move include tackle Breno Giacomini, guard/center Evan […]

Observations From Packers 59-24 Victory Over Colts

Peyton Manning

The Green Bay Packers offense is potent, we knew that, but in their longest outing of the preseason against last year’s AFC champs, they put any doubts to rest. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who I have a hard time believing isn’t on his way to becoming the best player in the NFL, cut up the Colts […]

Packers Veterans Who May Be In Trouble

At the end of every summer, the Green Bay Packers end up cutting a couple veteran players whose release comes as a surprise. Last year, it was receiver Ruvell Martin and safety Anthony Smith. Here’s a list of several players who could potentially be on that list this year. Justin Harrell, defensive tackle — The […]

A Look At The Packers Depth Chart

The Green Bay Packers have released their first depth chart, which gives us a good idea of who is and who isn’t performing well. It also sheds some light on who is playing where. On the offensive side of the ball there aren’t any big surprises. Most notable is that Donald Lee has regained the […]

Training Camp Observations, August 3, Evening, Full Pads

The weather man was wrong. It’s sunny and 85 degrees about an hour before practice. Quick observations: – There is a lot of talk here in Green Bay on the Brett Favre retirement. My thoughts — he stays retired until September 9th when, while mowing the lawn, he decides to drive the lawnmower to the […]

Dream Of Acquiring Ted Ginn Shattered, But Fifth-Rounders Are Priceless

Quinn Johnson

Just a quick note, since I did way too much research on the subject the other day in suggesting the Green Bay Packers and do-nothing general manager Ted Thompson could and should realistically look at acquiring Miami Dolphins’ return man/receiver Ted Ginn Jr. — Ginn was traded to the San Francisco 49ers today for a […]

Five Reasons Not To Be Excited About The Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers have won three straight games after an embarrassing loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers almost derailed their season. The Packers sit at 7-4, in prime position for a wild card berth. There are a lot of things to like about the team, right now. But we’re pessimists and therefore, we can’t […]

Packers Sign Quinn Johnson, First Rounders Remain

On Wednesday, the Green Bay Packers signed fifth-round draft choice Quinn Johnson, fullback from LSU. The signing leaves the Packers with only two unsigned picks – first-rounders B.J. Raji and Clay Matthews Jr. As part of Total Packers’ ongoing profiles of draft pick signees, we’ll take a look a Quinn Johnson. You can check out […]

Final Word On The Packers Draft, For Now

Today is the day that everyone and their mother hand out draft grades. Well, grading a draft class immediately after said draft is bullshit. No one can adequately grade a draft class for at least three years. These players haven’t been on the field yet. They haven’t seen the playbook. They haven’t met their teammates. […]
