Tale of the Tape: Preseason, Game Two

Jermichael Finley

Shawn Neuser breaks down the tape from the Green Bay Packers preseason win over the Arizona Cardinals. Here’s what it said about the Derek Sherrod’s failings, Jermichael Finley’s return and who might be earning a roster spot.

Ryan Grant Took A Pay Cut

Ryan Grant

Perhaps he saw the writing on the wall. After reports surfaced that running back [intlink id="64" type="category"]Ryan Grant[/intlink] could be released by the Green Bay Packers it’s also been reported he restructured his deal. Grant took a $1 million pay cut. His base salary was lowered from $3.5 million to $2.5 million and his salary […]

Packers May Consider Cutting Grant

Ryan Grant

The Green Bay Packers will likely have to choose between keeping Ryan Grant and Dmitri Nance. You might consider Grant a lock, but the Packers may not.

Tale of the Tape: Preseason, Game One

James Starks

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.

Training Camp Observations 8-16, Full Pads

Randall Cobb

The Green Bay Packers may have a quandary at tight end, where six guys are legitimate players. That, and the team experiments with Randall Cobb, Desmond Bishop’s father makes an appearance and injuries are affecting several players.

Ryan Grant Still No. 1 On Depth Chart

Ryan Grant

The Green Bay Packers will go into training camp with Ryan Grant as their No. 1 running back. What that means exactly, remains to be seen.

Atlanta Falcons: Green Bay South?

Roddy White

Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White thinks his team is going to outscore everyone in 2011 after the team added receiver Julio Jones in the draft. My first reaction: oooooooooh, we’re real scared! The Falcons are not going to outscore the Green Bay Packers, the team that whipped them 48-21 in the playoffs.

Veteran Packers Who Should Be Worried

James Jones

The NFL Draft changes the face of every team’s roster and the Green Bay Packers are no exception, even though they’re the reigning Super Bowl champs. Several veterans will go into training camp to fight for a roster spot, while others will simply be let go during free agency. Here’s a look at which players […]

Packers Throw Out First Pitch, Brewers Immediately Sign Them

Packers first pitch

Twelve members of the world champion Green Bay Packers were on hand for the Milwaukee Brewers home opener Monday afternoon to throw out the first pitch… er, pitches. I’m only kidding about the Brewers signing anyone, but hell, none of the Packers have anything to do during the damn lockout and the Brewers supposedly vaunted […]

Kuhn Expects To Be Back With Packers

John Kuhn

John Kuhn isn’t doing himself any favors. Over the weekend, the pending free agent said he expects to return to the Green Bay Packers next season. Either Kuhn doesn’t expect they’ll be much of a market for his services or he doesn’t want to play anywhere else, which severely diminishes his chance of signing a big-money contract in free agency.

Ryan Grant’s Future Unclear After 2011

Ryan Grant

Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant is coming off a season ended in week one by a broken ankle. He’s also entering the final year of his contract. Grant will make $5.25 million in 2011, if everything goes according to plan. That comes courtesy of a $3.5 million base salary, a $750,000 roster bonus if he plays all 16 games, and a $1 million roster bonus due on the 15th day of the league year, whenever that turns out to be.

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.

James Starks: Arian Foster Or Timmy Smith?

James Starks

I’m not suggesting Green Bay Packers running back James Starks is going to turn into the Houston Texans Arian Foster next season, but this is a comparison of two opposites.

I chose Foster, the NFL’s leading rusher in 2010, and Smith, who rushed for a record 204 yards in Super Bowl XXII as a member of the Washington Redskins, because they both came out of nowhere, much like Starks.

Packers Control The World For A Minute

The Green Bay Packers got to control the world for a minute.

At least that was Charles Woodson’s assessment of what it meant to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange, which Woodson, teammates John Kuhn, Ryan Grant and Packers president Mark Murphy did, yesterday.

Jackson Is As Good As Gone

Brandon Jackson

I know. It’s not the offseason yet, but some people are getting an early jump on looking at the Green Bay Packers free agents to be. One guy who’s in an even more dubious position than receiver James Jones, whose chances of returning to the Packers seem about 50/50, is running back Brandon Jackson. When […]

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 […]

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 […]

Barnett Could Be Out For The Season

Nick Barnett

When Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said linebacker Nick Barnett could miss an extended period with a wrist injury, we didn’t anticipate “extended period” meant “the rest of the year.” However, that appears to be a real possibility. Multiple sources have confirmed Barnett’s initial diagnosis — that he will need surgery to repair his […]

Vikings Get Moss For Third-Round Pick, Packers Keep Thumb In Ass

Randy Moss

Well, that was easy enough. In the span of 24 hours the Green Bay Packers watched the running back everyone said they needed get traded to Seattle for a fourth-round pick and the receiver they were too stubborn to acquire in 2007 get traded to their arch rival for a third-round pick, moving at least […]
